SE Qld set for a taste of Summer

South East Queensland is set for a scorcher today, with temperatures to hit highs we haven’t seen since last Summer.

Maximums are expected to reach 34 degrees across the Gold Coast, 35 in areas like Nerang and Coomera.

The Bureau of Meteorology says it will be a partly cloudy day with a slight (30%) chance of a shower and we could see more thunderstorms develop from the late morning.


A little further north, Brisbane is expecting hot and sunny tops around 36 degrees, which is well above average.

The area around Ipswich and Amberley will really feel the heat today, with tops around 38 degrees expected, eight degrees above the average for this time of the year.

The warmer temperatures are the result of a system of warm air being pushed ahead of a trough moving across the region.

However there is relief in sight, with the heat only expected to stick around for a day.

Tomorrow on the Gold Coast temperatures will cool down to a November average of around 28 degrees.
