Heat­wave in Queens­land

Otago Daily Times - - Weekend World -

Tem­per­a­tures re­main 10 to 12 de­grees above av­er­age across much of south­east Queens­land but a cool change is due over the week­end.

Bris­bane hit 36degC, short of its Septem­ber record of 38.3degC, yes­ter­day al­though tem­per­a­tures were due to lower in the af­ter­noon, a Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster said.

The heat­wave has melted records this week.

Birdsville recorded the state’s hottest ever Septem­ber day at 42.8degC on Wed­nes­day. As a warm air mass moved to­wards the coast on Thurs­day, records fell at 12 lo­ca­tions be­tween War­wick, Toowoomba, the Sun­shine Coast and Lo­gan. — AAP
