IF YOU mistook your backyard for an ice rink yesterday morning, then you weren't alone.

Linda Bunch, who lives on the northern outskirts of Warwick, walked on to her veranda to find it glistening with frost.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Michael Knepp said yesterday got down to -3.7 degrees in Warwick and -4.1 degrees in Stanthorpe.

Today and tomorrow look to be the same story and the frost is here to stay.

"It may get slightly warmer (tomorrow) but it will still be cold," Mr Knepp said.

He said morning temperatures were upwards of seven degrees below average for this time of year with daytime temperatures just one or two below normal.

"It will remain below average for at lease the next three or four days," Mr Knepp said.

So crank those heaters and stoke those fires because the chill factor is sticking around.
