Glorious warm weather to hang around, bureau predicts

THE glorious warm winter days on the Fraser Coast will hang around for a little while longer with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting the next few days will be clear.

For the past week residents have taken advantage of the weather, basking in warm sunshine.

BoM forecaster Amber Young told the Chronicle a lack of atmospheric activity was causing the wonderful days.

"There are always systems moving through," she said.

"Generally it's just been a stable air mass that's been dominating."

Ms Young said our weather was coming from the usually sunny north Queensland.

"The warmer temperatures that have been experienced in the region are attributed to where that air mass or air flow is coming through, which is generally in the north," she said.

"With winter the atmosphere, relatively speaking, is drier."
