The whole of Queensland has been placed on high or very high fire alert as temperatures soar as much as eight degrees above average.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has urged residents to be careful over the coming days, with gusty winds and low humidity increasing the likelihood of bushfires.

Above average temperatures will also contribute to the high fire risk, with Brisbane tipped to reach 31 on Wednesday and Ipswich forecast to get to 34.
