Australia Day to be at its hottest for 14 years

Queensland's south-east has woken to sweltering conditions on an Australia Day tipped to be the hottest in 14 years.

There's some relief predicted by the afternoon but not before the mercury soars to 33 in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast about midday. The Gold Coast is expecting 31 and Ipswich 36 with a possible storm.

There wasn't much relief overnight in Brisbane after a top of 35.8 on Sunday. Temperatures only briefly dipped below 25 and had reached 28 with an apparent temperature of almost 32 by 7.40am.

Stifling humidity of more than 80 per cent didn't help matters.

Australia Day temperatures haven't hit 33 since 2001 but the mercury did reach 32.8 in 2010.
