Temperatures are well above 40 degrees in large areas of the state as Tuesday's heatwave strikes in earnest.

The next four days will be the state's hottest stretch of weather since January 2009 and Melbourne is forecast to face four consecutive days of 40-degree-plus temperatures. This streak will not break the record of five consecutive days set in January 1908, said the Bureau.
