The tem­per­a­ture set to soar to 30 de­grees on Tues­day

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS WELCOME - Philippe Co­querand­

IT’S pre­dicted to be a warmer week in the Bur­nett as tem­per­a­tures soar to 30 de­grees by Tues­day morn­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to the Bureau of Metere­ol­ogy, this time last year tem­per­a­tures were sit­ting at an av­er­age of 24.6 de­grees; how­ever they’re ex­pected to in­crease in the next few weeks.

Bureau of Metere­ol­ogy me­te­o­rol­o­gist David Crock said it was un­usual to see this kind of tem­per­a­ture in win­ter but said it won’t be 30 de­grees ev­ery­day.

“We’ve got above av­er­age tem­per­a­tures this time of the year, we’ve got a slow mov­ing high pres­sure sys­tem in Western Aus­tralia which is com­ing here,” Mr Crock said.

“That means clear sunny skies ev­ery­day.

“The high pres­sure sys­tem is drag­ging the air down from the north-west.”

Res­i­dents were en­cour­aged to be sun safe.

“The sun is al­ways pow­er­ful in Queens­land so it’s a good idea to wear a broad brimmed hat and to wear sun­screen,” Mr Crock said.

Asked whether or not this will af­fect what spring will bring, Mr Crock said it shouldn’t.

“It doesn’t have any bear­ing on what the next sea­son will bring, it’s been quite dry so that could play a part in it,” he said.

“No rain is fore­cast at all for the Bur­nett, but min­i­mum tem­per­a­tures will be three de­grees on Thurs­day morn­ing and then it will in­crease to seven to eight by next week.”
