IT'S the country that can boast four seasons in one day.

To prove just how wild and varied our sunburnt country is, here's today's Bureau of Meteorology weather warnings from across our land of drought and flooding rain.

Authorities in South Australia are bracing for extreme weather after bushfires ripped through the state.

In South Australia there's currently fire weather warnings across a large part of the state as a huge bushfire destroys homes in the Adelaide Hills. The state is experiencing some of the most severe fire risk weather in recent times.

But there's also a severe thunderstorm warning for people in the Flinders, Mid North, Riverland, Murraylands, Upper South East and parts of the Mount Lofty Ranges, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Lower South East, North West Pastoral and North East Pastoral districts.

Meanwhile, in Queensland, there are moderate and minor flood warnings across Bulloo river, Balonne River, Dawson River and Warrego River systems.

Further south, marine wind warnings are current for Batemans Bay and the Eden coast of NSW, while a storm warning has been issued for the lower western forecast district in areas around Wentworth. Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds in the warning area

over the next several hours.

Residents of a Victorian town have been told to head to a nearby football ground due to a fire threat.

In Victoria it so hot there is currently under a total fire ban as out of control fires take hold across the state.

Meanwhile in the Central, Mallee, South West, Wimmera and parts of the Northern Country and North Central districts a severe thunderstorm warning is current.

And the heat is getting to Victorian residents. There have been four recent incidents of children being left in locked cars in the state as the temperatures approach 40C according to AAP.

Ambulance Victoria state health commander Paul Holman said the practice was risking lives, and parents needed a reminder to not duck into a shop and leave their kids in a car.

"I don't know how many times we have to say: Don't do it," Mr Holman said.

"Small children very quickly will become dehydrated and the consequences — we've already seen deaths in the past."

Territorians have woken up to a wet 2015 with the monsoon finally breaking in Darwin.

The Northern Territory is waiting to see if the first cyclone is about to form for the season.

There is currently a tropical low developing near the north Kimberley coast of Western Australia which could possibly result in a cyclone developing.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Mark Kersemakers told NT News there was an increased chance of cyclones as a result of the trough.

"Most cyclones do form in the monsoon trough, so while it's in our part of the world there is an increased likelihood of cyclones forming," he said.

In Western Australia, the same trough has resulted in a flood watch was issued for the Kimberley as fire warnings have been issued for West Pilbara Coast and Exmouth Gulf Coastdistricts, while a monsoon trough lingers in the far north of the state.

So what are we in for moving forward? It looks like more of the same. Get your local 7-day forecast here.
