Another hot day expected before cool change tomorrow

THE sun was fierce and the region was feeling the heat as temperatures rose above 30 degrees in Gladstone yesterday.

Although a little steamy, the weather did not prove any real hindrance to all the great sporting and community events happening across town.

Rockhampton Bureau spokesman Brendan Bradford said the city could expect the warm weather to continue today.

"Gladstone can expect a top of 31 degrees today and a late shower in the afternoon," he said.

"Temperatures should begin to ease by Tuesday thanks to a cool change coming through.

"Gladstone could also expect a windy day tomorrow with south-easterly winds building in the morning and a top of 27 degrees."
