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.
