THE Toowoomba Car­ni­val of Flow­ers is fast ap­proach­ing and it ap­pears the weather gods are look­ing favourably on the Gar­den City, with clear skies pre­dicted for the open­ing week­end.

Ac­cord­ing to the Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy, there is a zero chance of rain all week with day-time tem­per­a­tures to sit in the low to mid 20s.

The gala din­ner kicked off the car­ni­val last night, with tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from 14–21 de­grees through­out the day and evening.

Tem­per­a­tures will drop off both to­day and to­mor­row, so if you are head­ing to the Er­gon En­ergy Food and Wine Fes­ti­val at night it will be a good idea to rug up.

To­day will be sunny with a min­i­mum of six de­grees and max­i­mum of 22.

Satur­day will be a cool eight de­grees, warm­ing to 24 de­grees dur­ing the day.

BoM fore­caster Gor­don Banks said the weather couldn’t get any bet­ter.

“We need rain and a lot of peo­ple are hop­ing for it but for an event like this the weather couldn’t be more per­fect,” he said.

“Be­tween now and the week­end we will see tem­per­a­tures warm­ing but

they will drop off on Thurs­day (yes­ter­day) as a gusty change comes through.

“Tem­per­a­tures will go back down to the low 20s and there will be cool morn­ings and nights on Fri­day and Satur­day.

“Sun­day looks per­fect. There will be light winds, tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from 11–26 de­grees and plenty of sun­shine.”
