‘Worst is yet to come!’: Town endures unrelenting run of 40 degree days
Queenslanders have sweltered through an early summer heatwave this week, with the forecast showing relief is on the way on Sunday.
Nine News reporter Rob Morrison said the Bureau of Meteorology was looking at the record-breaking hot spots.
“Unfortunately talking to the [Bureau of Meteorology] they say the worst is yet to come in the coming days, we are probably going to see temperatures in and around Brisbane 4-5 degrees above average,” he told Scott Emerson.
“Spare a thought for the people in Julia Creek if you don’t like the heat, not long ago they have gone over 40 degrees again, for the 22nd day in a row.
“Apparently that’s not quite a record!”
He said they were predicting a cool change on Sunday.
