HOT SPELL: Warwick swelters in above average temperatures

GET used to the hot temperatures, they're not going anywhere soon.

Conditions in Warwick are set to soar well above the monthly average of 29 degrees for the next week at least, with temperatures in the mid-30s predicted.

Today is expected to reach a top of 34 today and 35 tomorrow, before heading into the weekend with a top of 34 on Saturday and 33 on Sunday.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist James Thompson said conditions were going to feel particularly warm because there was a cool end to spring.

"It's quite a bit above average across the week and that's due to stable conditions allowing the air mass to warm up,” he said.

Conditions are expected to remain dry with no rain systems on the horizon for Warwick.

Mr Thompson said the end of the hot weather was not yet in sight.

"There is the chance of a change at the end of next week but at this stage it's too far out to tell what day that'll be,” he said.

An extreme heatwave has been forecast to hit south-west Queensland this week, with temperatures expected to soar about 8 degrees above average to reach a humid 43 degrees in some parts.
