Warm con­di­tions for this week­end

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE North Bur­nett can ex­pect a great week­end of weather ahead, with con­di­tions set to cre­ate a warmer than aver­age week­end.

Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to rise to be­tween 24 and 27 de­grees by the week­end be­fore peak­ing at 27 to 30 by Sun­day.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Michael Paech said a warm spell was ex­pected over the week­end.

“We’ve got quite a warm air mass around the rest of the week and that’s go­ing to com­bine with an ap­proach­ing sur­face trough through Satur­day,” Mr Paech said.

“So you have northerly winds ahead of that and it will help bring some heat down from the north­ern in­te­rior of the coun­try, so those things com­bined are what will bring the un­sea­son­ably warm tem­per­a­tures for the lat­ter part of the week.”

Mr Paech said to still ex­pect a colder Sun­day morn­ing as the trough moves and south west­erly winds re­turn to drop the tem­per­a­ture.

“The trough ap­proach­ing through Satur­day and Sun­day means you can ex­pect a slight in­crease in south west­erly winds be­hind that trough to about 5 to 10km,” Mr Paech said.

Hu­mid­ity is pre­dicted to reach be­tween 90 and 100% in some parts.

But Mr Paech said it was nor­mal for the con­di­tions.

“Typ­i­cally of an evening you’ll find that the rel­a­tive hu­mid­ity will rise as the air tem­per­a­tures cools,” Mr Paech said.

“But dur­ing the day, when most peo­ple as­sess how hu­mid it is, it will be pretty aver­age con­di­tions for the week­end.”
