Temperature about to rise

THE mercury is set to rise steeply over the next few days with temperatures expected to reach the mid-thirties.

There will not be much relief during the nights either with minimum temperatures ranging from 15-16 degrees.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Vinord Anand said the warm temperatures were caused by a western trough.

"The trough is coming from inland areas with north, north-westerly winds," he said.

"That is way it is getting warmer because the temperature is heating up in those areas.

"There has also been no cloud cover which means heaps of sunshine is getting through."

The highest November temperature was recorded at 38 degrees in 2009.
