THE Sunshine Coast is heading towards a great weekend as showers that dogged the middle of the first week of the school holidays abate.

Heavy rain expected today will not eventuate with no more than five millimetres expected to fall ahead of a cold Thursday morning with a minimum 14 degrees and clearing skies set to return through to Sunday according to Weatherzone forecaster Jacob Cronje.

He says Friday and Saturday will feature cold mornings between 11 and 12 degrees making way for a mild to warm days with maximums of 25 to 26 degrees.

Sunday will arrive humid, partly cloudy and with a 29 degree maximum before a return to light showers expected to arrive Tuesday and Wednesday.

Wednesday's overnight minimum of 15.8 degrees had climbed to 16.6 degrees by 6am and 21.5 degrees by 9.30am.

Winds will be light early on Thursday before reaching 15-25 kph from the south west and then 15-20 kph from the west on Friday.

Saturday will be sunny with only light winds before 15-20kph westerlies return Sunday after being light early.

The ingredients make for perfect early swimming conditions on all Sunshine Coast beaches although the prospects remain slim for any increase in swell size for surfers.

Surf is unlikely to reach more than half a metre anywhere with no sign of an increase through to the end of the holiday break.
