A Total Fire Ban has again been declared for the Mallee today with the Fire Danger rating listed as Extreme.

The CFA is bracing for a hot and windy one before a wind change and gusts of up to 40 kilometres an hour.

The fire authority says conditions will make it hard for crews to suppress a blaze if one starts.
