SHERRIN Burns is hoping Warwick is in for a hot summer.

She has already spent some weekend time at Leslie Park with family members.

"It is great to see the number of kids in the park," she said.

"I absolutely love the hot weather as in my job I work in a chiller room."

The forecast today is for cloudy conditions with isolated showers and morning drizzle over the eastern Darling Downs. A maximum temperature in the low 20s is predicted, similar to yesterday.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Amber Young gave farmers little hope of drought-breaking rain.

"The shower activity is being driven by a high-pressure system in the Great Australian Bight," Ms Young said.

"I would expect falls to be less than 5mm."
