Beat­ing the heat on the beach

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - FRONT PAGE -

This is what Deni’s all about in the sum­mer time.

Some lo­cals took to McLean Beach for some heat re­lief on Fri­day af­ter­noon for Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions, with a few cold beers on the beach to cel­e­brate a year’s work.

Scores of lo­cals and visi­tors have done the same thing over the past few days, en­joy­ing time on the Ed­ward River and beat­ing the siz­zling Christ­mas break tem­per­a­tures.

Deni swel­tered on Christ­mas Day with the mer­cury soar­ing to 36.2°C, just shy of the pre­dicted 39°C but still steamy.

And don’t ex­pect much respite from the sun, with pre­dic­tions of 39°C to­day and 38°C to­mor­row. But it will drop to the early 30s for the rest of the week with pos­si­ble storms on Thurs­day and clear­ing show­ers Fri­day.

Au­thor­i­ties are re­mind­ing peo­ple to stay safe on the river, with lo­cal wa­ter po­lice ex­pected to be out in force.

Con­di­tions are ex­pected to be ideal for cel­e­brat­ing the new year this week­end.

Satur­day’s tem­per­a­tures are pre­dicted to be mild, with a top of 31°C and only a low of 16°C. It’s fore­casted to be a sunny day, with only the slight­est chance of a lit­tle driz­zle.

Sun­day will also be mostly sunny, with a top of 30°C.
