Hot tip could break scorching summer temp record

WHETHER it is in front of the air-conditioner or by the pool, have your favourite cool spot prepped, as tomorrow has the potential to be Warwick's hottest January day on record.

The mercury is predicted to hit 40 degrees throughout tomorrow, and could surpass the record-breaking 40.1 degree day we sweltered through back in 2002.

Today's maximum temperature is not likely to be far off, with a 38-degree day on the cards.

But those who are suffering through the heat can rejoice, with Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Amber Young saying a cooler change is just around the corner.

"Monday onwards is when we start to see a bit of a change and will experience a southerly change coming through and we should see a few thunderstorms developing throughout the day," she said.

"Tuesday should see cooler temperatures and increasing showers."

If a thunderstorm did hit the Rose City, it had the potential to bring up to 40mm of rain but Ms Young said about 10-15mm was more likely.

Temperatures should cool closer to the average of 30 degrees into next week, with 32 degrees predicted for Monday and 28 degrees predicted for Tuesday.
