The next bit of weather in Queensland should have it all – a sustained severe heat wave and potentially dangerous thunderstorms ahead of a significant temperature relief.
The Bureau of Meteorology expects the resurgent heatwave to push mercury back into the 1940s this weekend.
BoM meteorologist Peter Markworth said harmful winds, heavy rain and hail were possible in the scorching heat before temperatures plummeted by mid-next week.
« We’re seeing a cool change across the state by late weekend, starting in Birdsville on Sunday. So if the temperature in Birdsville rises before a trough moves up to 47 degrees, we see a 14 degree drop as this cool change picks up, ”he said.
« This trough, as it moves across the state, will bring showers and thunderstorms with it, and of course the cooler conditions.
« We’re assuming this will move southeast by Tuesday before those cooler temperatures really kick in on Wednesday.
« This trough is expected to bring widespread showers and thunderstorms as it moves across the state. Therefore, the eastern interior counties are expected to see showers and thunderstorms Monday through Tuesday and Wednesday when they hit the coast. «
Brisbane has been predicted to hit highs of 32 to 34 degrees from Saturday through next Tuesday before dropping to 28 on Wednesday when the cool change hits.
Ipswich expects 37-41 degrees for the next four days before dropping to 31 degrees on Wednesday.
Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast was set to 31 to 34 degrees from Saturday through next Tuesday before dropping to 27 degrees on Wednesday.
On the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise should hit 30 to 33 in the next four days, dropping to 26 on Wednesday.
Gatton in the Lockyer Valley was expected to reach 39 to 42 degrees from Saturday through next Tuesday and drop to 33 degrees on Wednesday.
Boonah in the Scenic Rim should have a maximum of 37 to 40 degrees followed by 30 in the middle of next week.
Birdsville, near the South Australian border, was set to 47 degrees on Saturday before dropping to the mid-30s on Sunday when the cool change swept across the state.
Mr Markworth said smoke from bushfires on Fraser Island should continue to hit southeast Queensland over the weekend.
« It is possible that this trough will bring severe local fire hazards to the southern counties in the next few days from tomorrow [Saturday], and we expect severe fire hazards for the Darling Downs and the granite belt with dry and gusty conditions from Sunday » , he said.
In the southwest of the state, Birdsville was the warmest in the state at 47 on Monday. 1 degree, while Thargomindah exceeded the temperatures with 47 degrees on Tuesday.
Windorah, about 20 miles east of Birdsville, ranked first at 45 on the state’s temperature list on Wednesday and Thursday. 5 and 45. 2 degrees each.
