Sunny days all week

The Observer - - NEWS -

THE Glad­stone re­gion is in for a warm and sunny week, with no rain in the fore­cast for some time.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy pre­dicts mostly sunny con­di­tions and max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures in the low 30s this week. Me­te­o­rol­o­gist Michael Knepp said a high pres­sure sys­tem in the Tas­man Sea was the cause for the sunny weather.

along the east coast of Queens­land,” Mr Knepp said.

“The high pres­sure will stay rel­a­tively sta­tion­ary in the Tas­man Sea, and that’s lead­ing to mostly fine con­di­tions, if not all fine con­di­tions, dur­ing the next week.”

He said the Glad­stone re­gion would not be af­fected by the heat­wave pre­dicted for the rest of the state.

“Tem­per­a­tures on the coast will be moderated by an on­shore flow,” Mr Knepp said. “So it’ll re­main warm.”
