Milder, wet summer forecast

PINCH and a punch for the first day of the month - and summer.

Get ready to don your bikinis, thongs and board shorts as we head into the warmer months; albeit what is expected to be a slightly cooler summer than usual.

The Bureau of Meteorology's Brett Harrison said a wetter and cooler Christmas period was on the cards.

"We're looking at an increase greater than the average rainfall and lower than average maximum temperatures," Mr Harrison told the Daily News.

Spring brought with it a number of dry days, a few showers and some scorchers, but nothing out of the ordinary Mr Harrison says.

Over spring Warwick had 176mm of rain, with the long-term average just 2mm less.

The Rose City experienced almost spot-on average temperatures, with a maximum of 24.6 degrees just shy of the long-term average of 25 degrees, and a minimum of 9.9C also close to the long-term average of 10C.

Children from Good Start Early Learning Centre on Percy St enjoyed the sun yesterday and three-year-old Nicola Krause said she cannot wait for summer.

"I like playing in the sandpit and swimming and my mum has two swimming suits for me," Nicola said.

Four-year-old Keira said she also loved swimming and playing in the park.
