High humidity makes for a hot weekend
HUMIDITY and high temperatures forced Gladstone residents to look for ways to escape the heat over the weekend.
Bureau of Meteorology spokesperson Michelle Berry said Gladstone city hit its maximum temperature at noon on Sunday with 34.7 degrees.
Saturday was 32 degrees while Friday's temperature soared, reaching 35.3 degrees.
"It is really humid in Gladstone at the moment. It is at 60%," Mrs Berry said.
"We will see the temperatures gradually getting near average during the week. Tuesday will be closer to 31 degrees."
The bureau predicts an increased chance of storm activity later in the week.
Isla, Nate and Kade Gourley took advantage of a cool sprinkler over the weekend.
While a crowd of 60 people attended a public consultation with Opposition leader Annastacia Palaszczuk, the children ran amok in the sprinkler at Gladstone marina, clothes and all.
"I don't blame the kids, they love water," mum Mel Gourley said.
"Wherever they go they play in water."
