Fingers crossed we may see some clearer skies this weekend with maximum temperatures forecast of 31C.
That could make it a near perfect weekend to get out there and enjoy the range of outdoor activities we've collected for you in today's edition of TropicWeekender.
Why not take the opportunity to travel further afield this weekend? Several markets are in action including the Yungaburra and Mission Beach markets, as well as the Family Fun Day at Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park.
Whatever you decide to do, there's plenty of everything in today's TropicWeekender guide. Have a great tropical weekend!
