Brisbane is set to feel the heat as the Australia Day long weekend approaches with temps set to hit 34 degrees. 

While Monday and Tuesday are poised to reach a decent 32 degrees, Wednesday sees the mercury rise to a top of 34. 

Those temperatures will remain on Thursday.

Meanwhile expect a balmy 33 degrees on Friday through Monday for the long weekend. 

Make sure that you stay hydrated during the hot weather and check on children, elderly family members and neighbours and animals.

We recommend the weekend is best spent near a pool, beach or in air conditioning.
