Month of July is the ‘warmest ever’
More mild weather is on the way as trough develops
THE Bureau of Metereology released its latest findings for the month of July and found it was the warmest July on record.
Queensland recorded a mean temperature of 2.65 degrees above the long-term average which was 15.94 degrees.
It comes after a week of heavy fog in the North Burnett that prompted forecasts the nights could be getting colder.
Bureau of Metereology meteorologist Lauren Pattie said from today through to the weekend the region should see a similar set up with a trough developing in the early morning.
“We had a trough developing late Wednesday night and it (arrived in) the North Burnett Thursday morning and it will bring some rainfall,” Mrs Pattie said.
“There could be some frost and fog in the mornings but it’s hard to tell as the trough will arrive at the same time and may stop it.
“If there is fog, it won’t be anything significant.”
The cloud cover these next few days should help bring the temperatures up, Mrs Pattie said.
“In Gayndah the minimum temperature for Thursday will be 11 degrees and it should increase to 12 degrees on Friday,” she said.
The maximum daytime temperatures are expected to reach around the 25-26 degrees.
Longreach was named as one of the warmest places during the month of July.
