After unusually chilly conditions earlier in November, Wagga is now set to swelter, with Thursday's temperature expected to peak at 40 degrees.
Tuesday's maximum is expected to be 34 degrees, with a slightly warmer 35 on Wednesday.
The good news is that after Thursday's 40-degree scorcher, Friday is expected to be a cooler and partly cloudy 34 degrees.
The weekend should be even milder, with a likely top of 32 on Saturday and a maximum on Sunday of 31 degrees.
The long-term average maximum temperature for November in Wagga is 25.9 degrees.
Despite Thursday's peak expected to be almost 15 degrees higher than this, the day is likely to fall short of being a record-breaker.
A record maximum of 42.8 was set on November 26, 1997.
