Hot days take a cooling dip

HEIDI Hayes and her two children could not resist the pull of the water when they went to Innes Park to cool off yesterday.

"The water was actually the coldest it has been for a while," Ms Hayes said.

The young mother welcomed the cooler change after sweltering in the oppressive heat earlier this week.

"We spent a lot of time at the beach and in the water," she said.

"It's much nicer, but a little less wind would work for me."

Ms Hayes and her children would get their wish for the pleasant weather to continue though.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Gordon Banks said the mercury was set to stay below 30 degrees until at least late next week.

"What you are noticing (with the cooler weather) is the south easterly wind which is bringing the humidity and the temperature down," he said.

"That is likely to continue into next week," he said.

Mr Banks said while the temperature would stay pleasant, the weather may not.

"It will get more showers over the next few days from this afternoon," he said.
