it's just building the heat ''The change should be coming through late on Tuesday, for New South Wales and should drop temperatures a lot closer to average, possibly below average 'Mr Morris said Sunday's heat in parts of the state was well-above the October average, with one town breaking a century-long record    'Yesterday [Sunday], across the board, the averages were sort of above 10 degrees for some parts,' he said     'Sunday the 6th was the hottest October day in 100 years in Forbes '   'Parkes got a 367C day which was about 13 degrees above average, it also came close to their record which was 36 8C in 2014 'Bourke got to 401C, which is 10 degrees above the October average ' Sydney will feel the cold change during the week, with temperatures unlikely to reach past the early-mid twenties  Melbourne is forecast to have a wet and cool week with a high of 18C on Monday  Perth will enjoy warmer weather, while Adelaide is expected to experience lower than average temperatures  The nation's capital will drop from 24C on Monday to 16C on Tuesday, and Hobart will sit in the mid-teens after the temperature falls on Monday  Conditions remain hot and sunny in Darwin   THREE DAY FORECAST   Max 26, Sunny Min 13, Max 34, Mostly sunny Min 14, Max 27, Partly cloudy Max 18, Showers, mainly tonight Min 9, Max 14, Showers Min 9, Max 15, Shower or two Max 24, Mostly sunny Min 8, Max 16, Shower or two Min 1, Max 18, Partly cloudy Max 34, Hot and mostly sunny Min 19, Max 36, Hot Partly cloudy Min 18, Max 27, Mostly sunny  Max 18, Shower or twoMin 8, Max 16, Partly cloudy Min 7, Max 18, Partly cloudy Max 17, Late shower or two Min 7, Max 15, Shower or two Min 5, Max 16, Shower or two 23, Partly cloudy Min 16, Max 24, Windy Partly cloudy Min 11, Max 19, Partly cloudy Max 33, Mostly sunny Min 24, Max 34, Sunny Min 24, Max 34, Mostly sunny
