Brisbane braces for hottest day of year as records break in south-east

Brisbane is set to swelter through a sticky 38 degrees on Friday, as record-breaking heat arrives in the south-east, making for a potentially stormy start to the weekend before Christmas.

Some towns in the state’s south-east were expected to exceed 40 degrees as the surface trough responsible for two western Queensland towns setting heat records this week completes its journey east.

The warm and humid air from the west meant Brisbane would hit a top temperature of 38 degrees on Friday, while Gatton braced for 42 degrees and Boonah, Laidley, Esk and Ipswich were forecast to hit 41 degrees.

Brisbane was expected to drop to a minimum of 24 degrees overnight on Friday.
