Wetter-than-average spring likely

SPRING has sprung in Central Queensland and it's time to head outside and enjoy the outdoors again.

Spring will kick off today with a mainly fine day with a possible morning shower, moderate east to south east winds and a temperature ranging between 14 and 24 degrees.

Tomorrow will also be mainly fine with a possible shower for Gladstone.

Weather forecasters are predicting a wetter than average spring this year with a La Nina forming over the Pacific Ocean.

Temperatures are also predicted to be warmer than average.

Gladstone experienced a relatively mild winter this year but locals are looking forward to spring.

Spring also brings out all the snakes from hibernation so Central Queensland residents need to be aware.

Spring also means more racing carnivals and festivals galore and time to start hitting the beaches again.
