Temps To Soar Across Mackay, Whitsundays This Weekend

By Ray White Whitsunday

A sunny weekend with light winds will provide a perfect few days for the Mackay region.

A slow moving high pressure system near New Zealand will maintain a ridge along the east coast of Queensland over the next few days, the Bureau of Meteorology predicts.

Temperatures for the Central Coast and Whitsundays are set to reach maximums of 32 degrees on Saturday and 34 on Sunday.

Further south, a surface trough will move north and east across most of the state over the weekend which may lead to some isolated storms about the southern and southeast interior on Saturday, but little rainfall is expected.

The Bureau says warm conditions will persist over the southern interior over the next couple of days and will spread to western and southeastern Queensland on Saturday ahead of the surface trough. A cooler air mass will then spread to much of the state on Sunday and Monday in the wake of the trough.

Possible showers are on the cards for Mackay by Tuesday, but the rainfall won’t be much at this stage, according to the bureau.
