Temps to remain at or above 30C for at least the next 7 days

THE hot weather looks set to stick around on the Gold Coast, with daytime temperatures forecast to remain at or above 30 degrees for at least the next seven days.

The mercury maxed out at 31.1 degrees at Coolangatta just after 2pm on Saturday, while a top of 30.1 degrees was recorded further north at the Seaway at 2.38pm.

It’ll be a very similar story right across the Coast on Sunday as well, with Coomera set to hit a top of 33 degrees.

In fact, the Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting the summer-like weather to stick around for at least the next week.

The mercury is expected to rise to 30 degrees in Surfers Paradise on Monday and again on Tuesday, before reaching 32 on Wednesday and peaking at 33 on Thursday.

It’ll drop only slightly on the Friday, with a top of 31 forecast along the beach, followed by 30 degrees on Saturday.

The weather bureau says there’s also a chance of storms developing tomorrow afternoon, and again on Wednesday.

The last time the Gold Coast experienced seven consecutive days at or above 30 degrees was back in February.
