Heatwave to Grip Australia as Temperatures Soar Past 35C

Australians are bracing themselves for an onslaught of hot weather which will grip the nation this week.

Summer shows no sign of letting up as forecasters predict temperatures of more than 35 degrees on parts of both the east and west coasts this week.

Queenslanders are facing the brunt of the scorching weather, with temperatures to hit 36 degrees in Brisbane on Wednesday, and more than 45 degrees in inland regions.

Bureau of Meteorology spokesperson Sarah Fitton said Queensland and north-east New South Wales will experience temperatures six to 12 degrees above average for this time of year.

‘We are expecting the regions to experience severe to locally extreme heatwave conditions this week,’ Ms Fitton said.

‘The severe heatwave includes most major populated centres down the Queensland coast.’

Ms Fitton said the hottest temperatures will be on Wednesday and Thursday, before a cool trend sweeps across the nation’s east coast on Friday.

But Ms Fitton warned the evenings will bring little respite, as minimum temperatures hover around 30 degrees due to humidity.

‘It will be quite humid, especially in eastern parts of Queensland and New South Wales from moisture from the ocean,’ she said.

‘It will make it seem more warm and the humidity will exacerbate heat stress. We expect minimum temperatures to be of no relief as some may be around 30 degrees.’

Ms Fitton encouraged people to stay indoors and remain hydrated during the extreme weather conditions

Meanwhile, Perth is expected to reach 37 degrees on Thursday, followed by a slightly cooler 35 degrees on Friday.

Ms Fitton encouraged people to stay indoors and remain hydrated during the extreme weather conditions.

Ms Fitton warned a tropical low in northern Western Australia could see a tropical cyclone developing on the weekend.

She also warned of possible severe storms, damaging winds and large hail storms across southeast Queensland before the weekend.

A Wednesday total fire ban has been declared by the NSW Rural Fire Service for Greater Sydney, Greater Hunter, Central Ranges, Illawarra, New England, North Western, Northern Slopes, Southern Ranges and Southern Slopes regions.
