Tak­ing the plunge as city swel­ters on

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWSFRONT - AMINA McCAULEY Full weather de­tails: Pages 40-41

HO­BART is ex­pected to this week set an all-time record for the num­ber of con­sec­u­tive days above 20C.

Hol­i­day-mak­ers and those work­ing out­doors can ex­pect a scorcher to­day as tem­per­a­tures have been pre­dicted to reach 29C in the city — and up to 34C in the north­ern suburbs, with ex­treme UV lev­els fore­cast across the state.

And with the fore­cast for the warm con­di­tions to con­tinue all week, on Fri­day Ho­bart will likely break its heat-streak record of 25 con­sec­u­tive days of more than 20C that was set in 2013.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy is fore­cast­ing a pos­si­ble slight shower to­mor­row with a top of 23C. Tem­per­a­tures are then fore­cast to rise on Thurs­day, when a top of 26C is ex­pected — ahead of 26C and the new weather record for Ho­bart on Fri­day.
