Mercury drops a touch

SOUTHERN Downs residents will experience some respite from the persistent heat this week as temperatures drop back below 30 degrees.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Ben Annells said temperatures today would be between 20 and 29 degrees.

Tomorrow will cool down even further, with an expected top of 23 degrees.

However, the mercury will rise again on Wednesday and steadily increase throughout the week until it reaches 30 degrees again Saturday.

“On Tuesday it will be 18-23 degrees, on Wednesday it will range from 16-27 degrees, Thursday can expect 16-27 and Friday will be between 16-28 degrees,” Mr Annells said.

He said there would be some showers today, with a slight chance of thunderstorms.
