Temperatures to drop this weekend

AFTER sweltering through the past three weeks, the Bundaberg district can prepare for a cool change this weekend.

But it is not going to be that much cooler, with temperatures still expected to be in the high 20s.

Weatherzone meteorologist Josh Fisher said a high pressure system would move into the Tasman Sea this weekend, bringing cooler easterly to south-easterly winds.

“That will bring temperatures back to around the upper 20C mark,” he said.

Mr Fisher said the rain predicted for tomorrow, due to the influence of Tropical Cyclone Olga in north Queensland, would help bring the temperatures down.

Mr Fisher said the temperature was expected to be about 31C today, with tomorrow down to about 29C.

The temperatures would hover about the 29C to 30C mark throughout next week. But he warned it was still going to be very humid.

Mr Fisher said records showed the temperatures had gone above the 30C mark in Bundaberg every day for the past three weeks.
