Queensland heatwave: Brisbane set to roast as weekend temperatures soar

Sun rises over Brisbane 

 The scorching heatwave gripping much of Queensland will be felt in Brisbane Saturday, with residents set to roast in temperatures of up to 41 degrees Celsius.

Queensland’s interior has been sweltering through record-breaking heat in recent days, along with parts of Central Australia and north-western New South Wales.

The heatwave continued as a Bureau of Meteorology report revealed 2013 was the hottest year on record in Australia.

The mass of hot air causing the extreme weather again led to searing temperatures in central and western Queensland on Friday.

Brisbane’s top for Friday was 34.3C, but the mercury is predicted to reach 41C today as northerly winds push the heatwave south.

The Gold Coast’s beaches have been packed with people keen to beat the heat, and that is sure to be the case over the weekend.  Queenslanders have also been urged to put their health first during the current heatwave.   Steven Clarke from Queensland Ambulance says drinking plenty of water is the key.

In New South Wales, Walgett recorded 49.1C on Friday, which is the highest temperature recorded in NSW since 1939, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
