From Sunday temperatures across North Queensland will have us running for the aircon remote!

Extremely hot conditions will settle in for a couple of days for Ingham, Townsville, Ayr, Home Hill, and Bowen. 

During the heatwave increase your intake of water (beer won't help), and be sure to check on your elderly neighbours and loved ones who will need extra care (some think it has to be 50 before the AC goes on!)

Local ambos are concerned that this weekend could be one of their busiest weekends for 2018, but you can assist by taking care of yourself and loved ones.
