Gympie hits a cold 4.1°C

MOST of South East Queensland woke to widespread frosts in inland areas yesterday as a mass of cold, dry air moved through the region, and Gympie residents weren’t spared from the cold snap.

Below-average temperatures were recorded in Brisbane and in coastal areas.

Gympie got down to a mere 4.1 degrees at 6.30am, the coldest morning this month.

Amberley recorded 1.3 degrees, senior Weather Bureau forecaster Vikash Prasad said.

Stanthorpe recorded minus 2 degrees, as did Kingaroy. Injune, Warwick, Roma and Miles all recorded below-freezing temperatures.

Mr Prasad said Saturday would bring similar conditions, but Sunday should be warmer.

A rain band is expected to move through southern Queensland on Monday.

“That will be a bit of a welcome thing behind this dry air,” he said.

“Most areas will see rain on Monday and Tuesday in the south east parts,” Mr Prasad said.
