WINTER might be only days away but the Rose City is still unusually cold.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rick Threlfall said the mercury had dropped well below the average for this time of year - with the trend set to continue today and tomorrow.

"The (average) minimum would be about seven degrees and the maximum about 21 degrees," he said.

"It will be fine and sunny but it's going to start off the morning at about one degree and get to about 17 in the day today."

So if you were shivering on Wednesday - the coolest day of the week with a minimum of 2.1 degrees - prepare yourself for tomorrow.

"It will be similar (tomorrow) to (today), maybe even a bit cooler in the morning," Mr Threlfall said.

He said the 6mm of rain Warwick had copped from 9am-6pm yesterday had also helped keep temperatures low but no more rain was expected in the coming days.

"It should get a little bit warmer through the week. We should see them creep up gradually so by the time Wednesday and Thursday comes around, it should be about 19 degrees," Mr Threlfall said.
