Cooler, drier weather in store after miserable week

It may have been muggy, muddy and miserable for much of the week, but relief is finally at hand.

“We haven't had a very significant change of air mass since ex-tropical cyclone Oswald left us,” said Rick Threlfall from the Bureau of Meteorology.

“So we're waiting for this southerly change to come up, which will bring much less humid air, especially in the latter part of Saturday and into Sunday.”

Mr Threlfall said a line of storms over the western Darling Downs on Friday night would bring some showers and storms down to Brisbane on Saturday morning.

“But really once that clears off in the early hours of tomorrow, it should be fine for the rest of the weekend,” he said.

Brisbane will reach a top of 31 degrees on Saturday, then 29 on Sunday and 28 on Monday after the fresh change, he said.

It will be markedly different to the Australia Day long weekend, which heralded the start of Queensland second flood in two years.
