The rain activity will also ease up as we head towards the weekend and Friday will be mostly sunny with a top of 26°C.

“On the weekend it will slowly warm to just shy of 30°C by Sunday,” Ms Pattie said.

Temperatures will briefly cool again on Monday, with a low of 11°C and a top of 24°C due to a trough moving across the State over the weekend.

Ms Pattie said heading further inland from Gympie the temperatures will drop to 8-9°C in the mornings, and the chance of rain was minimal.

She said regions closer to the coast could expect slightly higher temperatures, with lows of around 15°C, with stronger winds and slightly higher rainfall.

Looking to the next few months Ms Pattie said there was no significant rain on the horizon and no weather systems that could strongly influence rainfall were present.

Based on the region’s climate outlook Ms Pattie said Gympie could expect a high chance of above average maximum temperatures from June to August compared to previous winters.
