THOSE who ventured outside for a bit of sun during the weekend's beautiful weather will be glad they did.

Local parks and the banks of the Condamine River were lined with families with winter a distant thought.

Despite minimums of 1 degree in the Rose City at the weekend, the days soon warmed up to around the 20-degree mark. But the sun is set to go into hibernation in coming days, with the chance of heavy rain.

Weatherzone meteorologist Willemein Phelan said today is likely to be the last sunny day Warwick residents will enjoy for awhile.

"This afternoon there is the possibility of a shower, as easterly winds are being driven by a large high-pressure system over South Australia," Ms Phelan said.

The chances of showers will continue throughout the week, with the chance of significant rainfall of up to 40mm on Friday.

Temperatures are set to hover around the 20 degree mark in the next few days, with minimums between 5 and 7 degrees.
