Our rainy run continues - but hotter days are on horizon

UPDATE, SUNDAY 10AM: THE BUREAU of Meteorology has forecast rain for Ipswich on Monday, as our wet start to spring continues.

Ipswich's Amberley weather station recorded 92.4mm of rain for the month of September - nearly three times the long-term average, which is 33mm.

The city has a 90% chance of rain on Monday with likely falls of up to 15mm.

The clouds should part quickly, making for a warm day on Tuesday, with a predicted maximum of 27 degrees.

The mercury will continue to rise during the week, with clear sunny skies and temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s up until Saturday.

EARLIER: WITH plenty of barbecues planned for today and tomorrow's football finals, now is the time to be out enjoying the great weather, the Bureau of Meteorology says it is likely to change by Monday.

With today peaking in the high 20s, and Sunday tipped to be 30, the temps will drop Monday, with a predicted maximum of 27, but with a good chance of a thunderstorm.

If you have a caravan to unpack, or tents to put away, today and tomorrow might be the best time to air the canvas out.

The Ipswich region is predicted as having a 90% possibility of rain, with expectations of between 8 and 15mm to fall on Monday, with a possible late thunderstorm.

While it nothing like what is happening in other parts of Australia, as always, if it is flooded, forget it.
