Heatwave expected to continue

IT was a scorcher of a weekend as people taking part in Australia Day celebrations on the Southern Downs tried to keep cool.

Ice drinks proved popular at the Allora Heritage Weekend, while inflatable pools were used at the cricket fields to beat the heat.

It is not likely to cool off any time soon. Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Bernard said nothing was happening in the weather over the next few days – just a “continuation of fine weather and fairly warm days” sitting around 35-36 degrees for most of this week.

“Expect a very hot and fine Australia Day,” he said.

It isn’t looking good for much rain over the next week with the possibility of scattered storms from late Wednesday, increasing on Thursday and Friday.

“No rain in the next several days, although who knows with the storms – they might bring some good falls later in the week,” Mr Bernard said.

Forecast temperatures for this week:

Today: 35 degrees

Tomorrow: 36 degrees

Wednesday: 36 degrees

Thursday: 32 degrees

Friday: 29 degrees

Saturday: 28 degrees
