Firefighters will be on alert across Victoria with a heatwave about to sweep the state.
Temperatures in Melbourne are expected to reach above 39 degrees for four days this week.
It's going to be even hotter in rural parts where some towns will hit above 40 degrees every day this week.
The heat will make for an uncomfortable start to the Australian Open today.
But organisers are confident they won't have to cancel matches, thanks to a recent upgrade of Melbourne Park.
