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.
