Central Queensland to experience cool change

THE HOT weather is set to continue for Central Queensland over the next two days.

The mercury is set to hit 33 degrees today with a clear and sunny day ahead.

This weather will continue through to Saturday which will be the last hot day before a cool change sweeps the region early next week.

Weatherzone Meteorologist Guy Dixon, said the chance of rain will provide Central Queensland with a slight reprieve from the hot weather.

"Saturday will reach a maximum of 33 degrees,” he said.

"However, it is likely to be the last hot day before a cool change.

"On Saturday there is a possibility of rainfall and storms to the west of Emerald. There is also a 90 per cent chance of less than five millimetres in Emerald.”

On Sunday the region will experience a drop in temperatures due to the clouds coverage over the area.

"Rainfall is likely to move over the region on Sunday,” Mr Dixon said.

"The region is set to receive around 15 to 20 millimetres of rain during the day.”

Temperatures will fall to a maximum of 24 degrees during Sunday.

"Toward the end of the weekend temperatures in the region will be cooler due to the trough creating thick cloud and cooler air,” Mr Dixon said.

These cool conditions will continue through to Tuesday next week providing a much needed break for the regions hot weather.

Temperatures will rise slowly early next week with a maximum of 30 degrees on Wednesday. There will only be a slight breeze throughout the region over the weekend generating around 20 km/h winds.
