IT WILL be tempting to spend today's public holiday indoors on the couch and under a blanket, as it coincides with the "wettest and windiest" day of the week.

Weatherzone meteorologist Rob Sharpe said a number of showers, coupled with strong winds, were expected to hit the Rose City today.

"(Today) should be the wettest and windiest day of the week, with 5-10mm of rain expected," he said.

Mr Sharpe added that after tomorrow there was not likely to be any more wet weather until the weekend.

"Tomorrow the wind and rains should ease, with only a few light showers throughout the day," he said.

"There is a small chance of rain again on Saturday but not much."

The mercury is not expected to rise past the 16-degree mark today, but things are on the way up for the rest of the week.

"We are looking at mid teens (today) and it should warm up for the rest of the week," he said.

However, Mr Sharpe's concept of "warm" may differ from that of Warwick residents.

Minimum temperatures are expected to drop to as low as 4 degrees on Thursday, with predicted maximums of around 19 degrees.

"Towards the weekend the minimums will be getting close to freezing," Mr Sharpe said.

Motorists hitting the road early Thursday and Friday are urged to use their lights, as fog is predicted.
