PLAY IN THE COLD DE­CEM­BER RAIN

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - EMILY HAL­LO­RAN

THE Gold Coast sum­mer isn’t ex­pected to be so sunny, with rain ex­pected to fall ev­ery day for the next week.

Af­ter reach­ing a top of 36C this week, the Gold Coast has cooled to be­lowa­v­er­age tem­per­a­tures.

Weather­zone me­te­o­rol­o­gist Tom Hough said they are pre­dict­ing rain and cooler tem­per­a­tures for the next 10 days.

“There shouldn’t be a sig­nif­i­cant amount of rain for the week­end,” he said.

“Maybe a cou­ple of mil­lime­tres on Satur­day and pos­si­bly more on Sun­day.”

Both Satur­day and Sun­day are ex­pected to have highs of 24C and sim­i­lar tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected for the next week.

The drop in tem­per­a­tures is caused by cool­ing sea breezes.

Yesterday the winds were blow­ing up to about 35km/h.

Wind is ex­pected to be blow­ing up to about 30km/h to­day and to­mor­row it is ex­pected to be blow­ing in the high 20s.
