WARM WEATHER COM­ING

NewsMail - - FRONT PAGE -

IT MIGHT be near­ing sum­mer, but the air def­i­nitely has a slight chill to it lately.

But it won’t hang around for long, ac­cord­ing to the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy, who say by Thurs­day the tem­per­a­ture should start heat­ing up once more.

BoM me­te­o­rol­o­gist David Crock said the cool change was due to an south east­erly air mass that was push­ing the mer­cury down by a few de­grees.

“It has been cooler across most of Queens­land,” Mr Crock said.

“Av­er­ages for Novem­ber are usu­ally around 28.5 de­grees but Bund­aberg has been about 26 de­grees since Wed­nes­day and the prox­im­ity to the coast makes things feel that lit­tle bit more cooler.

“That is now slow­ing warm­ing up.”

Mr Crock said the cool air was also due to winds com­ing our way from Tas­ma­nia.

“There is a strong high pres­sure sys­tem sit­ting down near Tas­ma­nia which has brought the south east­erly winds up the coast,” he said.

“That is fore­cast to ease over the next few days as the high pres­sure sys­tem eases.”

If you have some out­door ac­tiv­i­ties planned for the end of the week, Mr Crock said con­di­tions were go­ing to be pretty per­fect.

“By the time we get to Thurs­day it will be mostly sunny,” he said.

“We have been see­ing a lot of coastal show­ers but they are fore­cast to ease as well.”
