The only parts of Australia not to see a 75 per cent or higher likelihood of exceeding the average are small pockets of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, the map shows. 

New South Wales could see the high temperatures arrive as early as the end of this week, BoM duty forecaster Rose Barr told Daily Mail Australia.

'In the west of the state we'll be seeing temperatures hitting the high 30s and as high as 37 or 38 degrees by Saturday to Sunday,' she said.

Those levels would be 10 degrees higher than the average for this time of year. 

The warning comes after the New South Wales and Queensland border saw a horror month of bushfires during September.

More than 150 firefighters are still fighting five blazes burning in the region.

The BoM's official forecast is equally severe in terms of rainfall outlook, with virtually the entirety of Australia likely to see less rainfall than average.
