A local psychic, Melinda Hauter, has been proven correct with her prediction that Melbourne would experience extremely hot weather in mid-January.
Last year, when Hauter made her predictions, meteorologists dismissed the claims as lacking in basis in science.
"To make predictions of 40 degree heat on specific days is just ridiculous," said Jonathon Mentha in August last year. "Predicting seven days out is hard enough, believe me!"
It is the second time in a year that a Hauter prediction has come true - in April she predicted New Zealand to retain the Bledisloe Cup.
