Great weather ahead for hol­i­days

Ex-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Penny to bring pos­si­ble show­ers

Central Telegraph - - NEWS THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY -

THE new year will bring with it some good clear and sunny weather with the pos­si­bil­ity of show­ers and rain­fall dur­ing the week.

It will be a great way to get out­doors and en­joy some fun and fes­tiv­i­ties.

How­ever, Ex-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Penny’s move­ment over the com­ing week will have a strong in­flu­ence of weather in the re­gion.

The weather for to­day and to­mor­row will be mostly sunny with a chance of a shower with a south-east­erly wind.

The tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to be overnight lows of 19C to day­time tem­per­a­tures reach­ing a high of 35C.

Sun­day is ex­pected to be partly cloudy with a cooler change of tem­per­a­tures of 19C to 32C.

Mon­day and Tues­day are ex­pected to be partly cloudy with tem­per­a­tures of 19C to 33C and a 30 per cent chance of rain­fall.

Wed­nes­day is ex­pected to be cloudy with 10 per cent chance of rain and tem­per­a­tures of 19C to 32C to bring a cool change to the re­gion.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy said Ex-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Penny could re-form off Queens­land but there is uncer­tainty about whether it will track back to­wards the coast.

BoM Me­te­o­rol­o­gist Jess Gard­ner said Ex-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Penny could in­flu­ence rain­fall on the Biloela re­gion.

“Over the week­end there is the chance of iso­lated show­ers and on Sun­day a chance it will con­tract to the coast,” Ms Gard­ner said.

“Mon­day there is a higher chance of re­ceiv­ing some rain­fall from Ex-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Penny as there is a chance it will re-curve and track back to the Cen­tral Coast from the Coral Sea.

“There is a pos­si­bil­ity Penny might cross the coast be­tween Cairns and Mackay as a low pres­sure sys­tem early next week.”
