Colder conditions tipped for tomorrow as snow falls south

SNOW chasers have reveled in the winter wonderland that has covered areas just south of the Queensland border.

Mt Mackenzie at Tenterfield has proven to be a hot spot for cold weather seekers, with many posting and sharing their photos on social media.

There remains a chance, however, that snow could fall over Stanthorpe this afternoon, but tomorrow is looking better.

Toowoomba's temperature has struggled to get above 11 degrees today, and the Bureau of Meteorology has predicted tomorrow will be colder.

Temperatures will range from three to 10 degrees on Monday with a light morning frost and westerly winds from 35-55kmh.

The Bureau of Meteorology forecast said the Darling Downs and Granite Belt areas will be cold with a 50% chance of rain in some areas around Stanthorpe, mostly in the morning and afternoon.

"Snow and sleet possible above 800 metres over the Granite Belt. Winds westerly 20-30kmh increasing to 30-45kmh early in the morning then turning southwesterly 15-25kmh in the evening," the Bureau forecast for tomorrow said.
