Heatwave forecast for NSW, WA, SA, Victoria but Sydney will be spared as rain hits Queensland

Summer is finally here as authorities issue heatwave warnings for six states and territories, with parts of Australia already topping 45C for days.

Western Australia, South Australia, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT are set to experience significantly hotter than average temperatures for both day and night over the next week.

East-West Australia, North-South Australia, West NSW and North-West Victoria are all expecting above 40C all day, with mercury expected to peak this weekend.

The most extreme heat will hit Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

Meteorologists warned on Friday that heat from western Australia’s Pilbara desert region is channeling hot air south-east into South Australia and Victoria, bringing sweltering temperatures across the States.

The state capitals, on the other hand, are spared the country’s greatest heat.

Saturday will see “very extreme heat” with temperatures of 15C or more above average.

In Queensland, forecasters are predicting the state could see its heaviest rain in years.

“It’s going to be a very intense rainy weekend,” Sky News Weather meteorologist Alison Osborne told news.com.au.

“January 2023 could become the wettest month since February 2021 for parts of coastal Queensland.”

Southern NSW and Victoria are likely to see some showers on Sunday but remain hot.

Despite heavy showers across much of Queensland, Brisbane may not see even a drop of rain and is expected to be spared the wet weather but still be cooler than the southern states, with highs of 29C in the city.

Sydney will be spared the NSW heatwave, with the weekend set to be sunny with highs of 29C and lows around 20C.

Sydney has now endured days below 30C for almost a year, beating a temperature record held for 140 years, with the city just weeks away from shattering the records altogether.

NSW's heatwave will keep the capital from hitting the 30 degree mark again, although a sunny weekend is ahead with highs of 29C and lows around 20C.

Weatherzone meteorologist James Rout told Daily Mail Australia there is a real possibility the streak will continue for at least two weeks.

Sydney has not seen a day above 30C since February 21, 2022 and if temperatures don’t reach that mark by January 28 it will officially be an all-time record.

Mr Rout believes the barrier will finally be breached in late January or early February.

“The long-term outlook shows temperatures will rise in late January to early February,” he said.

While Greater Sydney will mostly dodge the heat along its coast, the outer western suburbs can expect to soar to 35C by Sunday.

In the ACT, a storm is expected to roll through the capital on Friday ahead of a dry Saturday and another small storm on Sunday.

However, the 30-degree mark will be broken in Canberra with 32-degree temperatures over the weekend.

The most extreme heat is reserved for Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Heat from Western Australia's Pilbara region will channel hot air south-east towards South Australia and Victoria, bringing tropical temperatures
