Get set to sweat out the weekend

JUST in case you forgot we are still in summer, Mother Nature will give the Ipswich region a reminder with some scorching-hot days starting this weekend.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Sunday will hit 34C and Monday 35C, promising to push Ipswich residents to the nearest fan, air-conditioned room or swimming pool.

There is also a chance of showers on the weekend, with the possibility of afternoon storms on Monday.

But the BOM predicts that will be the end of the heat wave with a cool change on Monday evening to bring maximum temperatures back to 28C for most of next week.
