Perfect weather for Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

THE Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting perfect conditions for the grand opening of Toowoomba's Carnival of Flowers.

Today will be sunny, and after starting out at seven degrees, will reach a maximum of 21 for the beginning of the annual event.

The fine conditions are expected to prevail over the weekend and into next week, with maximum temperatures hovering around the low to mid 20s.

Winds will range between 15-20km/h.

It is ideal weather to be out and about browsing the city's parks and gardens.

The 100,000 visitors who are set to descend on Toowoomba will be able to see the Garden City in all its glory.

If you are exploring the gardens during the day be sure to wear a hat, and if you're attending any night events it will be best to rug up to protect yourself against the cool evening wind.
