GYMPIE WEATHER: The Mother’s Day weekend ahead
A POSSIBLE further easing of coronavirus lockdown measures will occur today against a backdrop of mostly good weather for the Mother’s Day weekend.
The occasional light shower today will lead Gympie region into a dryer weekend, the Bureau of Meteorology predicts.
Today’s forecast of partly cloudy conditions and a maximum of 27C is accompanied by a 30 per cent chance of some rain.
Fire danger remains high across the region and UV levels are predicted to reach 6 (High) and sun protection is recommended from 9.10am to 2.10pm.
That should lead us into finer conditions on the weekend, with a partly cloudy day forecast for tomorrow, with temperatures ranging from 12C to 27C and only a 10 per cent chance of any rain.
On Sunday we can expect mostly sunny conditions and temperatures from 12C to 29C.

Thursday brings a better chance of rain, a 50 per cent chance of up to 2mm in a shower or two, with partly cloudy conditions and the rain likely to arrive later in the day.
