Dry weather turns nights cold

IT MIGHT pay to get the hot water bottles ready for next week with overnight temperatures predicted to hit single figures.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Michael Gray said south easterly winds would change over the weekend and south westerly ones would move across the region.

"There is a high pressure system south east of Australia and when that changes from the west it will be much dryer and cooler overnight and cause temperatures to drop,” Mr Gray said.

"Its predicted there won't be any rain over the next week but around mid-week should see temperatures down eight or nine degrees.”

Today's weather will be mostly sunny with day time temperatures maximum of 27C and overnight to 12C.

The weekend's weather will see a similar pattern with mostly sunny and a chance of clouds on Sunday.

Slight chance of a shower, most likely in the afternoon and evening and more towards the coastal region.

Daytime temperatures will peak around 27C and overnight down to 12C.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will see day time temperatures the same as the weekend but overnight temperatures will drop down to 8C or 9C during the mid-week.

The Sun protection recommended from 9.20am to 2.30 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 6.
