Queensland started October with temperatures of up to 6C above average, reported Brian Williams in The Courier Mail (2/10/2007, p.5). Hot outlook: And similar conditions were expected for the remainder of the week, with a seriously summery 32C predicted for Brisbane later in the week.

Blazing list of locations: Gatton was the southeast’s hottest yesterday, recording 34C — 6C above average. Coolangatta was also 6C above its average with its 30C. Amberley and Bepudesert were on 33C, Archerfield on Brisbane’s south-side 32C, while Roma, Wanvick and Gladstone ranged from 28C to 30C. The state’s hottest centres were Burketown at 37C and Weipa, on the Gulf of Carpentaria, at 35C. Long-reach, in the state’s central west, made 34C, while Brisbane City sweltered at 30C — 3C above its average.

Elevated fire danger: The National Climate Centre’s three-month seasonal outlook is for drier-than-average conditions along the east coast except for north Queensland. Brisbane is expected to have a maximum of 29C today, rising to 32C by Sunday. Warm northerly winds will increase fire danger and dust levels over the central and southern interior.
