WHETHER it is at a beach, in a pool or at a shopping centre, holiday makers will need to keep their cool for the remainder of this week.

Sydney visitor Mez Mercier had the right idea, keeping well covered in fairly mild temperatures yesterday, and staying out of the sun will be even more important today, with the mercury tipped to rise well into the 30s.

And the word from the Bureau of Meteorology is that it will stay there until at least the weekend.

The Bureau is predicting hot, steamy days until Friday, with the chance of some relief from isolated showers and thunderstorms.

If the sunny days eventuate it will be the continuation of some postcard-perfect holiday weather during the past week.

After the mercury reached 40 degrees on Saturday, a cooling change made things much more enjoyable on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, with the maximum temperature about 28 deg on both days.

Yesterday's maximum was 29 deg.
