Rainy days put summer on hold
ALTHOUGH the season has officially changed from spring to summer in the past week, the cool temperatures and gloomy days have dug their heels in and are refusing to leave.
Those hoping to soak up the sun's rays in coming days will be bitterly disappointed with the news that rainy days are likely to settle in Warwick for at least the next week.
But Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said despite the delay, Warwick's summer weather is on the way - slowly.
Mr Dutschke said Warwickites should start to see above-average temperatures by the end of this week or the beginning of next week.
Until then the forecast is quite dull, with cool temperatures and heavy rainfall set to persist throughout most of the next week.
"Basically there is a good chance or rain every day for the next seven days and from now until early next week, 50 to 100mm is certainly on the cards," he said.
December's monthly rainfall average is 95mm and Mr Dutschke said it was possible that this month's rainfall could hit average by the middle of the month.
He said local thermometers would struggle to hit the 20-degree mark before Friday and it would be a while before people could get "comfortably warm" again.
"What looks quite certain is you are not going to get any scorching days until at least mid-December," Mr Dutschke said.
The likelihood of thunderstorms descending on the city will increase towards the end of the week, as the temperatures slowly start to rise.
Warwick could see as much as 100mm dumped across the city over the next seven days.
Temperatures could drop as low as 10 degrees this week and are unlikely to rise above 20 degrees before the weekend.
