After a warm Monday, temperatures are expected to only continue to rise across Queensland during the next week. This has been brought on by a series of slow moving, large and dominating high pressure regions which are expected to move across mainland Australia during the next 7 days. These high’s are expected to be relentless and lead to continuous fine and sunny days across the majority of the State. Light winds will also lead to minimal influence on the overall temperature which is expected to climb State-wide to above average for the entire week.
Across the South East of the State, maximums are expected to hover around the mid 20’s for much of the week with some locations pushing the high 20’s or maybe even 30ºc on Tuesday. This is well and truly above the average for July which sits around the upper teens / low 20’s depending on the location. Across much of the remainder of the State, maximums are likely to be in the mid to high 20’s, possibly pushing the low 30’s depending on the exact location – this will be around 3-5ºc above average for July standards. Due to various reasons, overnight minimums will struggle to plummet as seen last week – especially across Southern and South East QLD.
This doesn’t mean its the end of Winter by any stretch, its just a warmer week. We are only entering the peak of Winter now, so Winter lovers still have something to look forward to.
