A near stationary trough extends through the middle of Queensland with moist unstable conditions to its East and very hot dry weather to the West. Very hot above average temperatures up to 42c are forecast from today and for the next 5 days classing this as a heatwave. A heatwave is temperatures more than 5c above average for 3 consecutive days and that’s exactly what Western QLD is headed for. Areas including and WEST from Georgetown, Richmond, Longreach and Charleville are at high risk of a significant hot spell. By next weekend conditions should cool down as moisture builds into storms and rain!
