Sunshine to start the school holidays on Fraser Coast
THE first week of school holidays for many kids on the Fraser Coast is bound to ice creams and refreshing swims as the hot and sunny conditions continue until Thursday.
The trough which bought the rain onto Hervey Bay on Saturday has moved off shore, meaning blue skies ahead for the next few days.
Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Adam Woods said Monday's maximum temperature for Hervey Bay would reach about 30 degrees Celsius, with a dew point of about 17.
The dew point is a measure of atmospheric moisture and can reach up into the 20's depending on the time of the year, he said.
"There's nothing out of ordinary for a dew point of 20 at this time of year," he said.
"There are nice conditions in Hervey Bay with wind speeds reaching about ten knots or 20km an hour and mostly sunny weather."
But an upper lower trough moving through South East Queensland could spell an end to the balmy weather soon.
"The trough could affect the Wide Bay Burnett with possibly raining weather on Thursday and a shower on Friday," Mr Woods said.
