World news – AU – Weather outlook for Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers


Certain events may be run a little differently this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but at least they will be held under warm, sunny skies.

This year there is no Heritage Bank Festival of Food and Wine or Grand Central Floral parade but the city is still in the spirit of carnival time.

Restaurants and cafes across town are open, offering special spring treats and the parks will be filled with people admiring the handywork of our gardeners.

Today is day one of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers with temperatures sitting between 13 and 23 degrees.

The next two days are similar with tomorrow forecast to range between 13 and 22 degrees and Sunday between 13 and 25 degrees.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology the three days will be mostly sunny with some cloud cover.

It does predict there could be a 20% chance of rain, but with only 0.4 degrees to fall across the weekend.

Across today and tomorrow winds could reach up to 30kmh but on Sunday winds drop back to 20kmh.

The comfortable weather is due to a high to the south of Australia, which is moving into the Tasman Sea and reinforcing a ridge over eastern Queensland for the next few days.

A trough system will move into the southwest on Friday and remain stationary over the weekend.


The Power 100 continues. Meet numbers 70 to 61 here.
