SPIKE IN TEM­PER­A­TURE SENDS LO­CALS TO BEACH

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS -

THERE was noth­ing prickly about the con­di­tions at lo­cal beaches yes­ter­day.

The 34C tem­per­a­ture made for a per­fect day by the sea for both hu­mans and an­i­mals.

A sand-lov­ing echidna was spot­ted en­joy­ing some rays at An­gle­sea on the Surf Coast, while a num­ber of dogs and their own­ers en­joyed a re­fresh­ing dip at Point Lons­dale on the Bel­lar­ine Peninsula.

The warm weather will linger to­day, with tem­per­a­tures ex­pected to reach 29C, be­fore drop­ping back to 20C and show­ers to­mor­row. Richard Car­lyon from the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy said high hu­mid­ity is ex­pected to con­tinue un­til at least for the early part of next week, de­spite a change in the tem­per­a­ture.

“It (was) the warm­est day for quite some time, you have to go back to March or even late Fe­bru­ary to see a day as warm as (yes­ter­day),” he said.

“There is a low-pres­sure trough ar­riv­ing in west­ern Vic­to­ria to­day, which is likely to lead to an in­crease in shower and storm ac­tiv­ity.”
