SUNSHINE SET TO POWER FLOWERS
TEMPERATURES across the southeast are expected to plummet after temperatures soared 5C hotter than the April average on Saturday.
Bureau of Meteorology’s Pieter Claassen said the unseasonal hot temperatures almost broke records in Brisbane City.
“Yesterday reached 32.4C, so that makes it 5C above April averages,” he said.
“The record in the city for April is just 33.7C so we weren’t too far off.”
But the hot days won’t stick around for long, with a cool change set to bring a chill to the Sunshine State.
“We’ll see a cooler change move through on Sunday into Monday and we do see those overnight temperatures drop by quite a bit, 15C being forecast for Monday,” he said.
The Queensland weather has been good for our gardens though, with Joy Bankhardt (pictured) from Ross Evans Garden Centre saying the climate was perfect for bougainvilleas to grow, with the nursery booming after all the rain and sun.
