Winter chill tipped to hit home this week
WINTER overnight temperatures have been unseasonably warm by up to five degrees Celsius thanks to a cover of cloud blanketing the region.
Bureau of Meteorology spokesman Chris Joseph said south-easterly winds from a high pressure system in the Tasman Sea had bought in the moisture needed for cloud formation.
The warmth isn't expected to last on the Fraser Coast and temperatures are predicted to plummet towards the end of the week.
Mr Joseph said south westerly winds brought in by a trough were expected to reach the Fraser Coast by Thursday, bringing conditions both dry and cool with sunshine.
Daytime temperatures are expected to drop towards 22 degrees Celsius along much of the coast, with sunny days ahead predicted.
