The Bureau say ‘Hot, dry and gusty northwesterly winds, ahead of a cooler south to southwesterly change extending over the southeast during the day, will cause elevated fire dangers on Tuesday. Thunderstorms will develop about the far east during the day and may exacerbate the dangerous fire weather”

A Monash CFS bushfire ready information session set for tonight has also been postponed due to the extreme weather.
