Cool change to follow heat

Terry West

A HEATWAVE tipped for the Downs this weekend should be followed by a cool change coming through on Monday, The Weather Channel said yesterday.

Chief meteorologist Dick Whitaker said today's daytime temperature should hit 36, followed by 37 tomorrow and 38 on Sunday.

But he said a trough moving into the region on Monday and associated cloud cover should bring the maximum back to around 33, with the chance of showers.

"There is a pool of hot air over central Australia at the moment and north-westerly winds are taking that future west," Mr Whittaker said.

"It's ironic, but Victoria is experiencing even higher temperatures than southern Queensland right now, with the air masses having more ground to cover before they get there."

Daily News chief of staff Shannon Newley was not prepared to argue with the forecast while spending a few days in Melbourne this week.

"We are going to the pub because the air-conditioning has stopped working," she said yesterday afternoon.

"It went from 19 degrees to 34 in our unit in 10 minutes."

Rainfall

24 hours to 9am yesterday:

  • Killarney 3.2mm
  • Warwick 4mm (2mm in afternoon)
  • Wallangarra 41mm
  • Emu Vale 18mm
  • Leyburn 13mm
