A heatwave extending across three states will affect Mount Isa over the weekend reaching into the mid-40s.
Heatwave conditions will extend from south-west Western Australia through the interior district and across the Northern Territory and Queensland.
A Bureau of Meteorology spokesperson said severe to extreme heatwave conditions would impact the northern parts of the country.
"A heatwave will move across from the Northern Territory and impact parts of North West Queensland including Mount Isa," the BOM spokesperson said.
"This heatwave could exceed currently maximum daily temperature records. We are currently predicting a top of 44 degrees which is hotter then the February record of 43.5 degrees set in 2002.
