Frost is com­ing to the Bur­nett and show­ers might be too

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

ANY­THING can hap­pen to the weather in the North Bur­nett over the next few days.

That is what Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Ni­cholas Shera has pre­dicted.

“It’s go­ing to be in­ter­est­ing, a lot of un­cer­tainty be­cause an up­per trough is com­ing from the west of the state,” he said.

“Thurs­day (to­day) there could be some show­ers, as there’s high pres­sure up the coast push­ing mois­ture up. “It will go a bit in­land. “It could get to Monto and Gayndah.”

The week­end, for the Eidsvold Races, rain could get up to 16mm.

“On Fri­day, there’s a high chance of show­ers,” Mr Shera said.

“But it’s on the Satur­day that the up­per trough will re­ally bring in the rain and thun­der­storms.

“The likely range is 5-16mm of rain.”

The ice-cold early morn­ing tem­per­a­ture is av­er­age for this time of year.

“The tem­per­a­tures will stay around what is ex­pected for June,” Mr Shera said.

“On Mon­day, the tem­per­a­ture was a bit be­low av­er­age for Monto and Gayndah.

“How­ever, it wasn’t any­thing record break­ing.”

Not long ago, the max­i­mum high tem­per­a­ture for towns in the re­gion was about four de­grees above the av­er­age for what is ex­pected this time of year.

“It’s def­i­nitely not as warm as it has been,” Mr Shera said.

“It will stay around the low 20s for the week­end.”

The av­er­age max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture for Monto in June is 21.2, and the av­er­age low range tem­per­a­ture is 6.8.

Gayndah is slightly warmer.

Gayndah’s June max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture av­er­age is at 22 de­grees and its min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture av­er­age is 9.
