Rain dampens Father's Day

PLANS for Father’s Day barbecues had to be put on hold yesterday as rain was a not-so-welcome guest.

It’s a wet start to spring with cooler temperatures and rain expected over the next few days.

Time to pull out those umbrellas with rain forecast today but easing tomorrow and clearing on Wednesday.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Ben Annells said Gladstone residents could expect a slight drop in temperatures as they peak about the low 20s today and tomorrow.

“As the rain clears we can expect the temperatures to climb back up to average and sit around the mid 20s mark,” he said.

The end of the week will see a return to the Gladstone sunny weather we know and love with temperatures climbing to 26 degrees on Friday.
