State to enjoy a respite from the heat
Victoria should enjoy a respite from bushfires this weekend due to milder conditions around the state.
Melbourne's forecast top is 24 degrees today and 20 degrees on Sunday and much of the state will also have highs only in the twenties. Only Mildura will have highs in the thirties on both days.
The fire risk for the state today is listed as high, the second-lowest rating, with the north-east region near Albury listed as very high.
All of the state's bushfires are listed as controlled or contained by the Country Fire Authority.
