Showery days for the new year
WARM but a bit showery is what the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting for the New Year's Day long weekend.
But the fresh to strong winds expected means it will not be ideal for beach or boating, meteorologist Gordon Banks said.
"There will be one or two showers about the coast every day through the weekend, developing inland in the afternoons as well," he said.
But Mr Banks said there were no thunderstorms expected over the weekend, just the isolated showers.
The high-pressure system sitting over the top of the region means prospects of rain are slim.
Temperatures tomorrow would range from 19 to 29 degrees, and Sunday will be a little warmer, with a high of 30.
"Those temperatures are pretty close to average, and there will be a bit of cloud around," Mr Banks said.
"Bundaberg won't be the worst place in Queensland to be over the weekend."
He said there was expected to be little change in the weather into the middle of next week.
"We will see a bit more instability towards the end of the week," he said.
So far this month Bundaberg has recorded a total of 204mm of rain, well above the long-term average for the month of December of 117.8mm.
