Warwick heat breaks record
❝Probably just enough to wash the dust off the cars.
— Forecaster Richard Wardle
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.
“Probably just enough to wash the dust off the cars.”
