Toowoomba is in for one hot week

TOOWOOMBA residents should prepare for a week of above average temperatures.

On Wednesday the temperature is predicated to top 36 degrees, eight degrees above the January average of 28.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Julian De Morton said hot inland winds would drive temperatures up.

"The northerly winds are why the temperatures will increase," Mr De Morton said.

"From (today) onwards, the northerly flow will intensify."

The high temperatures will linger into the weekend.

"The temperature model is going for 36 on Wednesday, 33 on Thursday and 32 of Friday," Mr De Morton said.

"Then it is back to 36 on Saturday."

The hot weather, however, is not predicted to bring much rain.

"Parts of the Western Downs, rather than the Eastern Downs, might get some gusty storms on Wednesday evening," he said.

"On Thursday there might be a few storms around the Granite Belt.

"But it is more than likely, there won't be much rain unfortunately."

The record high temperature of 39.3 was set on January 6, 1994.
