Get ready to spring into spring

SPRING is in the air ... well, almost.

After some picture-perfect weather experienced across the Gladstone region of late, there is no denying that spring is just around the corner.

With seven sleeps left until the official start to the new season, the region will bid farewell to what has been a relatively mild winter, with temperatures for August warmer than the average minimum and maximum recordings.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Vikash Prasad said the outlook for the Gladstone region over the coming days was for some cloudy periods plus a morning shower or two about.

Mr Prasad said the next two days would be mostly fine, with a minimum of 15 and maximum of 22 today.

He said clouds developing in the west would come in during today, with light rain in some areas expected overnight persisting into early tomorrow morning.

“This rain will clear eastward during the day and the region will be looking at fine conditions from Friday into the weekend,” Mr Prasad said.

“A slight cooling change will be evident with the cloud cover.”

So while sunnier days aren't far away, it's a little premature to put away the coats and scarves just yet, but don't let this put you off enjoying the great Gladstone outdoors.
