PEOPLE will be able to swim for free today and tomorrow due to extreme weather in the region.

The Olympic pool on Swan Street will be open extended hours today and tomorrow because extreme heat conditions at or above the heat health thresholds are forecast.

A Heat Health Alert has been issued for the North East district today with 41 degrees Celsius forecast, and the assessment is near the threshold tomorrow with an overnight temperature of 25C, followed by 39C during the day.

Mitchell Avenue splash park will also be operating for extended hours on Friday and Saturday.

Free and extended hours include the Olympic pool from 10am to 8.30pm and the splash park from 9am to 9pm, both today and tomorrow.
