Heat pouring into Brisbane againRob Sharpe, Thursday October 10, 2013 - 13:57 EDT
Heat will return to Brisbane on Friday, in almost identical fashion to last Monday.
On Monday, Brisbane reached 34.7 degrees before the weak seabreeze moved in. Relief arrived at 4:30pm with the cool change knocking five degrees off the temperature in a matter of half an hour.
Tomorrow should almost be identical to Monday with the mercury set to soar to around 35 degrees again before the weak sea breeze slowly brings cooling. The cool southerly change will arrive around 5-6pm, bringing the city sudden relief from the heat. People will be throwing their windows and doors wide open to let the cooler air in.
On Saturday it should be fairly cloudy and humid, reaching a muggy 28 degrees. The heat will push in again on Sunday, probably making it the fourth day of the week to reach 30 degrees. Sunday night will be quite warm, staying in the 20's, as the cool change is not due until Monday morning.
This month is shaping up to be quite extraordinary in Brisbane, possibly the hottest October in over 150 years of records. This follows on from the record hot September. Maximum temperatures are currently averaging 30 degrees, more than a degree above the record. But there is still a fair way to the end of the month.
