Temperature warms up for holidays

LESLIE Park was a hive of activity yesterday with children enjoying the first day of the holidays and the slightly warmer temperatures.

While the minimum on Sunday night was one degree, yesterday the mercury reached 20 degrees.

Mornings look set to be a bit warmer this week at between four and five degrees, though maximum temperatures will drop back a little.

According to a Bureau of Meteorology forecaster, winter is nowhere near over, with temperatures expected to drop again on Friday.

He said cloud coverage should increase over the next few days, with potential showers.

But don't be fooled by the milder temperatures and keep your wood pile stocked, July is still the coolest month.

“The frost may ease off towards the end of July with the weather picking up a bit more in August,” the forecaster said.
