Thursday is here and, what’s that I spy? A long weekend on the way?

To make the last day of this special short working week even better, here’s your weather forecast and handy hints on the outfits that go with it.


Slightly warmer than yesterday, today Adelaide will reach a top of 25 degrees. It’s like the skies know there is a four day weekend on the way, because you’re being given a sunny day with zero chance of rain.

Winds may pick up in the late afternoon, so pack a cardi for the commute home.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • When casual Friday lands on a Thursday, it’s time to pop on those blue jeans
  • A light jacket to help you stay warm when the sun goes down and the wind picks up


Another day in the high 20s for you, Brisbane, with temperatures reaching a lovely 27 degrees.

There is a slight chance (around 30 per cent) rain will fall throughout the day, so expect to see a bit of cloud about.


Fail-safe outfit options:

  • A black maxi dress paired with your most sparkly necklace and earrings
  • Pack an umbrella just in case you get caught in a light shower


Canberra, your temperatures are hitting a high of 21 degrees today. You’ve got a mostly sunny Thursday on the way, with no chance of rain and a few light winds.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • When it’s not cold enough for pants, but not warm enough for a dress: it’s midi-skirt time
  • Pack a bomber jacket to remind yourself that long weekends are the bomb


You know the drill, Darwin: you can expect a hot and humid day, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 31 degrees.

It’s fairly certain (well, 70 per cent, at least) that rain is headed your way, and those showers could develop into the familiar rumble of thunder and flashes of lightning.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • You’ll need an umbrella to shelter yourself from the rain, today
  • A printed skirt because you can still have fun, even when it’s raining


Hobart is in for a slightly warmer Thursday than yesterday (hooray!) with temperatures reaching 22 degrees.

The skies will be mostly sunny, but there is a 20 per cent chance of rain developing in the evening.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • Your fanciest, flow-iest pants to take you from the office to pre-long weekend drinks
  • A light jacket to keep you warm when the sun goes down and those temperatures inevitably drop


Just like yesterday, today will reach a top temperature of 23 degrees. There will be some early fog around (a sign that winter is well and truly on the way), but that should clear to a mostly sunny afternoon.

There’s a very slight chance of rain, so keep that umbrella at the ready, just in case.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • High wasted jeans and a colourful cami? Your Thursday is sorted


Today’s weather will probably tempt you to call in sick and start your long weekend a day early. It’s ok, we won’t tell anyone….

Temperatures in our Western most capital city will hit 28 degrees. There’s sun in the sky and no rain hanging about, so today is as close to weather perfection as you can get.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • It’s a floral, printed dress kind of day
  • Pair with bejewelled sandals to feel like you’re at the beach, even if you’re stuck at the office


It’s temperature déjà vu for you, Sydney: the temperature today will reach a top of 23 degrees..

There is a 60 per cent chance of a morning shower or two, mostly along the coast, and light winds may pick up towards the evening.

Fail-safe outfit options:

  • A leather jacket to keep you warm as you head to after work drinks when the wind picks up
