A COOLISH night quickly gave way to the start of what will be a sunny day on the Sunshine Coast with a forecast maximum of 27 degrees.

Overnight temperatures were coldest just on dawn with Maroochydore recording 12.1 degrees at 5.30am, Nambour 12.7 at 4.30am and Tewantin a slightly warmer 14.1 at 5am.

The day has warmed quickly with Maroochydore hitting 17.5 by 7am and 19.5 degrees a half hour later while by 7.30am Nambour had jumped to 20.8 degrees.

At the northern end of the Coast, Tewantin also hit 20.8 by 7.30am.

Light winds early that made for perfect beach conditions and a clean swell will give way to 15-20 kph easterlies which will fade out late in the day.

The surf conditions proved illusionary with little power in the swell despite it reaching 2-3 feet at the start of the push up to the high tide.

Thursday will dawn partly cloudy with a temperature range predicted from 14 to 26 degrees. Showers can be expected in the morning and afternoon with winds light before shifting easterly at 15-20kph before again becoming light in the evening.

Friday will be cloudy with light winds all day and temperatures ranging from 16 to 26 degrees. As is the case right through the week while the chance of rain has been as high as 50% the amount if any will be slight.

Saturday however is forecast to bring with temperatures ranging from 15-27 degrees, a 50% chance of rain with thunderstorms predicted late in the day.

Winds will start light before becoming 15-20 kph from the north north east and then fading to light breezes late in the evening.
