The air con is going to continue to get a workout this week with highs of 35 degrees across Brisbane.

Monday is set to peak at 33 degrees, but Tuesday and Wednesday will get even hotter with temperatures expected to reach 35.

Thursday the mercury returns to 33 degrees – but with a minimum temp of 25 forecast. 

The weather eases slightly for the remainder of the week. 

Don’t forget to check on elderly neighbours, pets and children throughout the heatwave. Drink lots of water and stay sunsmart.
