The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a hot Christmas Day and an even hotter weekend coming up.

Predictions are for 35 to 37 degree maximum temperatures tomorrow (Christmas Day) across northern Victoria and the Southern Riverina.

On Saturday and Sunday, the temperatures in places like Kerang could reach 45 degrees, while in Shepparton both days are likely to be in the 40s.

Boxing day is tipped to be in the high 30s.
