Rose City feeling the heat

THE sun was shining and the sweat was dripping as Warwick baked in scorching temperatures yesterday.

The Rose City experienced a top of 37 degrees yesterday - just 3.1 degrees off our highest recorded temperature which was January 12, 2002.

Temperatures will be declining for the rest of the week, with a top today of 35.

Meteorologist at the Bureau of Meteorology Matt Bass said the temperature will be warm for the rest of the week until cooling down on Friday.

"It will be fine and sunny on Wednesday which will be 33 degrees and Thursday should be around 31 degrees," Mr Bass said.

"The South Easterly winds will pick up on Friday giving Warwick a top of around 27 degrees," he said.

The children at Goodstart Early Learning Centre stayed indoors yesterday to escape the heat and splashed around in water to keep cool.
