OLD Man Winter has reared his head again and brought unseasonably cool temperatures to the Southern Downs.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Julian de Morton said temperatures experienced in the Southern Downs early yesterday morning were well below average for April so reports of frost on windscreens in Stanthorpe and Allora were unsurprising.

"Warwick got down to 2 degrees (yesterday) morning which is 9 below average, while Applethorpe recorded a low of 1 degree," Mr de Morton said.

"Temperatures are expected to remain below average over the next few days but should get a little warmer.

"What's happening is the cloud coverage in the north-west of Queensland is being caused by an upper-trough which is expected to move over the Downs at some point (today) and prevent temperatures from dropping so low again.

"Compared to the rest of the state there isn't much rain expected from these clouds for the western districts."
