"The forecast will be updated daily on our website but at this stage we are expecting a hot day in Brisbane with a likely temperature range of 21 to 31 degrees, two above average. It should be partly cloudy with the chance of afternoon or evening showers," weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Thomas Saunders said.
