Fire bans in place as temps top 40

The weekend heatwave is prompting a warning from firefighters, as the southeast braces for an extreme fire weather day.

Yesterday’s temperatures into the forties in areas west of Brisbane are set to continue, with hot conditions to be more widespread today.

The bureau is issuing an extreme fire warning for many southern parts of the state, stretching from the Maranoa and Warrego to southeast coast districts, with fire bans in place.


Coomera and Nerang are expected to reach 41 degrees today, while Surfers Paradise and Robina should hit 36 degrees.
