North set to sizzle in calm conditions

IF you don't like it too hot, it might be time to get to the beach, because 30 degree temperatures are coming back to inland towns.

Temperatures are expected to reach 30 degrees in Launceston tomorrow and Saturday before climbing to 32 on Sunday and 31 on Monday.

And while it might not be as hot as the high-30s heatwave we had earlier this month, there won't be much breeze.

``Away from the coast there will be no winds, so the air sits there and bakes,'' Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Anna Forrest said.

``If it was windy it would mix it around a bit, but the wind isn't going to be there.''

Light north to north-westerly winds have been forecast for the weekend, with the Midlands, Upper Derwent Valley and other inland areas expected to reach the highest temperatures.

Ms Forrest said coastal areas would be cooler because of the sea breeze.

Hobart temperatures are expected to reach the high 20s during the weekend, while Devonport's forecast maximum for Sunday is 26 degrees.
