SUNSHINE SET TO POWER FLOWERS

- SHILOH PAYNE

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.
