THE ROSE City reached a top of 36.6 de­grees on Thurs­day, break­ing the record for the hottest Septem­ber day in his­tory.

It was among a num­ber of Queens­land ci­ties, which also saw tem­per­a­tures sky­rocket.

Ac­cord­ing to South Bris­bane Storms, Am­ber­ley topped the record-break­ing list by reach­ing a max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 40.1 de­grees.

Gayn­dah was not far be­hind reach­ing 39.6 de­grees, while Gat­ton came in third at 39.5 de­grees.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Richard War­dle said con­di­tions would be cooler over the week­end, with to­day ex­pected to reach 27 de­grees.

The tem­per­a­ture will then drop into the mid-twen­ties un­til Thurs­day next week.

Mr War­dle said there was also a medium chance of rain to­mor­row and through­out next week, with 3-4mm of rain each day a pos­si­bil­ity.

“Won’t be huge rain­fall to­tals with that few mil­lime­tres, but pos­si­bly a nice re­prieve from those dry con­di­tions we’ve had for quite some time,” he said.
