Warm days and cool nights expected as grey skies clear

AS the weekend drizzle clears, Gladstone residents can expect a warm and mostly sunny week.

A mostly fine and partly cloudy day is expected on Monday, with very isolated coastal showers and moderate to fresh and gusty E/SE winds, strong at times about the coast and islands. 

The temperature is expected to reach 27 before cooling to 17 overnight.

Brisbane had its coldest November morning in two years with 16 degrees, and Double Island Point had its coldest in six years.

Tonight is likely to be colder for much of the state as winds will ease, with clearer skies near the coast.

Brisbane's gardens and parks had a good drink with 30mm of rain over the past two days, which was the city's heaviest rain in five months.

Gladstone had 4.4mm of rain on Sunday, while the heaviest rain fell in the Wide Bay and Burnett district where 68mm was recorded in Toolara, the area's heaviest rain since March.

This was also the area's heaviest November rainfall in 16 years.

In Gladstone on Tuesday the weather will be mostly sunny with a top of 27, followed by 28 on Wednesday and Thursday, and 29 on Friday.
