Citys hottest scorcher

YESTERDAY was the hottest day of the year in Rockhampton with the temperature reaching a maximum of 38.2 degrees at 1.36pm.

And while the next few days are forecast to be a degree or two cooler, it’s still going to be hot.

The weather bureau expects today’s top to reach 35 degrees and it’s a similar case tomorrow before maximums start dropping for the weekend.

“We’re still looking at above-average temperatures,” a weather bureau spokesman said.

The temperature dropped to a minimum of 21 degrees, which is also more than two degrees above the month’s average.

November’s average maximum is 31 degrees.

The year’s previous high was on October 14 when the temperature reached 37.9 degrees.

Meanwhile, it was 10 degrees cooler at Yeppoon yesterday.
