Weekend set to warm as milder days return

DAYTIME temperatures are set to climb during the weekend and into the early part of next week, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

As Warwickites bask in almost sub-tropical conditions through the day following a warmer-than-usual July, a trough heading our way should see maximums continue in the mid-twenties for a good few days ahead.

Bureau forecaster Lauren Murphy said we could look forward to "fine and beaut" conditions across this weekend, but a frosty start was tipped for today.

"This should give way to warm and sunny conditions and from Sunday, and the next few days after that any frost activity will probably contract back to places like the Granite Belt," she said.

"Maximum temperatures for Warwick will start to warm up into next week.

"There is a decent-sized trough heading in from the west and we should see temperatures peak on Monday somewhere towards the mid-twenties.

"But it will remain warm and sunny after that, and certainly warmer than usual for this time of August."

Minimum temperatures are also tipped to rise in coming days, with Tuesday's forecast at 10 degrees, according to Weatherzone.

The highest maximum so far recorded in August for Warwick was 21.3 degrees on Wednesday, with the lowest 0.7 degrees last Sunday and zero rainfall so far.

The long-term average maximum for Warwick for August is 19.9 degrees and the long-term average minimum is 3.2 degrees.

Average rainfall long-term for the month is 23.9mm.
