Year's hottest, wettest day in Warwick
WHEN storm clouds rolled across Warwick skies on Saturday afternoon, many no doubt held their breath and hoped some decent rain had arrived.
And it had.
A fierce storm unleashed its fury on the city and it may come as no surprise to those who witnessed it that Saturday was both the hottest and wettest day so far this year.
A total of 35mm rainfall was recorded in the weekend storm, cooling down a day that peaked at a searing 38.8 degrees.
Those who struggled with the sweltering heat will be pleased to know there is a little relief in store, with the mercury tipped to slide down a little closer to average this week.
The maximum temperature today is set to be about 31 degrees, before hitting 30 degrees tomorrow and on Wednesday, and coming down to 29 degrees on Thursday.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also expected for each day this week but any rain that does fall is expected to be minimal.
Today, Thursday and Friday could see falls of up to 10mm but each of the other days is predicted to see less than 5mm.
