Wild, windy days set to continue

WILD, WET and windy weather is set to continue for at least a few more days according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Gusts of wind reached over 50kmh at Hervey Bay airport yesterday and a strong wind warning remains current for virtually the entire Queensland coast.

High winds are forecast to continue at least through to Friday with coastal showers and overcast conditions expected to remain into the weekend.

Despite the windy weather a few diehard anglers including Masamitsu Ota was not about to let the weather get in the way of a day’s fishing.

“I don’t care about the wind, the main thing is I am out here relaxing and fishing in such a lovely place,” he said.

The showery weather forecast for the next three or four days is expected to affect the first Ashes Test in Brisbane starting tomorrow.
