Mr Brittan said these hot temperatures are consistent with this time of the year but over the weekend will be slightly higher than average.

Saturday will be sunny with a high of 34 celsius in Wauchope, with more sunshine on Sunday and a high of 35.

“The sea breeze will give surfers a good chance to get out and catch some waves but generally speaking the beaches will be pretty calm,” he said.

“The other good things about the breeze will be temperatures will feel one or two degrees cooler than foretasted.

“At this stage the hot weather will stick around into the next working week.”
