The opening date for this year’s mega event – Friday 19 January – is set to be a very warm and sunny 35°C, and light winds will likely not do much to keep the heat away. On Saturday, temperatures remain the same, with partly cloudy conditions and the possibility of winds.

That’s the forecast for the weekend – at the time of writing, anyway – but Monday and Tuesday could be even hotter. Currently, Monday is expected to be very hot and sunny with a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius, while Tuesday will be one degree hotter.
This weekend, punters should be advised to wear sunscreen from 8:50 a.m. to 5:20 p.m., when the UV Index is expected to reach 13. In addition to sun protection – sunscreen, sunglasses, and Shade where possible – Country Town She recommends that attendees drink plenty of water, and if you drink alcohol in the sun, balance beer with water, food and shelter.
