Southern Downs set for a real scorcher weekend

THE Rose City is in for a mini heatwave this weekend, with temperatures set to climb to heights not experienced in November since 2009.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster John Gardener said temperatures would rise to the high 30s over the weekend.

"It is going to be pretty warm over the next few days," he said.

"Basically there is a trough outside the state and it is going to move east over the next few days," he said.

"The hot air mass will be pushed through the eastern parts of the state."

The hottest November day was recorded in 2009 at 38 degrees; which is the predicted temperature for Sunday.

Mr Gardener said there could be some rain about today as well.

"There may be a storm (this) afternoon and then again (tomorrow)," he said.

"It looks like it may ease off in time for the temperatures to warm up over the weekend."
