Temperatures soar towards hottest day of the year

UPDATE: TURN up the air con,  keep the water flowing or find a shady place today because it’s set to be the hottest day of 2016 so far.

By 9.30am this morning locals were feeling the heat as the mercury reached 33.6C in Maroochydore.

A maximum temperature of 37C is expected across the Coast today before temperatures dip to 31C on Wednesday, then drop below the 30C mark later in the week and a south-easterly change arrives.

In the afternoon and evening on Wednesday it will be likely to see showers and thunderstorms move through the region before that south-east change kicks in early on Thursday.

We are getting these nice sunny days, there’s no rain, and there’s enough light that you can catch a wave in the afternoon.” It’s something to look forward to through these long roasting days!
