Heat too much for some Queensland residents

AFTER breaking an 85-year-old record for September by copping a 39-degree day on Wednesday, Charleville Mayor Denis Cook is appreciating the cooler weather already.

On Thursday the mercury fell to 38 degrees and was due to hit 35 today.

Residents told APN on Thursday it felt "much cooler today compared to yesterday".

Cr Cook said the 4000-strong town's weather swings from below zero in winter to up to 45 degrees in the summer but heat was something the town could handle.

"We're used to it - it's just what we do," he said.

"Most people I know prefer the hotter weather."
