Heatwave expected to ease off next week
TEMPERATURES are set to ease off in the North Burnett on Monday morning when a cool south-easterly change arrives from Brisbane.
At just 12pm Mundubbera and surrounding towns reached a high of 36 degrees.
Bureau of Metereology metereologist Lauren Murphy said the heat is proving a challenge for residents but said it won't last much longer.
"It's been a very hot weekend across the coast,” Ms Murphy said.
"We are expecting to see a cool south-easterly change from the Gold Coast into Brisbane over the next several hours and the North Burnett should have it by Sunday evening to early Monday morning.
"The temperatures will moderate overnight, we had those warm minimum's but they will be dropping.”
Ms Murphy said thunderstorms are expected later this afternoon.
"We're seeing on the radar north of Kingaroy through Murgon and Gympie showers are developing,” she said.
"A potential thunderstorm could hit the Gayndah region on Sunday evening.”
