AFTER experiencing more frosts this morning, the Southern Downs and Granite Belt will warm up tomorrow morning.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Rick Threlfall said there were frosts yesterday when the temperature dropped to minus 3 degrees at Stanthorpe, minus 2 at Warwick and minus 1 at Applethorpe.

"There will be more frosts Monday morning with predictions of zero at Warwick and minus 2 on the Granite Belt," he said.

It will be warmer tomorrow morning with frosts unlikely.

There is a chance of a shower or two from Wednesday to Friday with more persistent rain at the weekend.

"There is not a lot of certainty about the weekend as it is a long way off but at this stage it looks pretty wet," Mr Threlfall said.
