Tak­ing ad­van­tage of pic­ture per­fect weather

The Weekend Post - - News -

AN­DREA FALVO ex­pected to hit the state this week­end and into next week, Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy duty fore­caster James Thomp­son said Cairns and the Far North should es­cape the full brunt of the ex­treme warm weather.

He said tem­per­a­tures would gen­er­ally re­main near av­er­age, sit­ting between 31-33 de­grees to­day and to­mor­row and a top of 35 de­grees on Mon­day.

“Tem­per­a­tures will warm up from the mid­dle of next week ... but it won’t be quite the same as parts of south Queens­land,” he said.

“Rain will be­come a dis­tant mem­ory over the com­ing week with the last of any showers ex­pected this morn­ing.

“Across the week­end we’re look­ing at a slight to medium chance of showers this morn­ing on the North Trop­i­cal Coast from Cook­town down to Lucinda. From Sun­day the chance of showers de­crease and there will pretty much be no chance of showers into next week.”

While day­time tem­per­a­tures heat up, overnight tem­per­a­tures are due to cool down fall­ing to between 16 and 22 tonight and 15 and 21 de­grees on Sun­day and Mon­day.
