Victoria braces for hot, windy weather and extreme fire risk as total fire ban declared Victorians are warned to prepare themselves for a hot Friday, with temperatures in the mid-40s forecast for much of the state before a cool change in the afternoon causes a drop of up to 20 degrees. A total fire ban has been declared for the entire state, and the fire danger for the Mallee, Wimmera, Northern Country and North Central districts is rated as extreme. Elsewhere in the state, the fire danger is rated as either severe or very high, with authorities warning that an expected afternoon cool change could bring "dry lightning", which could spark new fires.
