WARWICK had its coldest day of the year yesterday, getting down to an icy -4.5 degrees, only 1.8 degrees away from the coldest temperature on record in 1995.

By mid-morning, there were a fair few people praising the sun for warming it up into a glorious sunny day, namely the tradesmen who were up at the crack of sparrows working in the icy cold.

Today is set to be much the same story with a severe frost predicted, but heating up to 20 degrees about noon.

Winds are expected to get up to about 21kmh so don't forget that chapstick when you head off to work today.

By tomorrow, morning temperatures will be back around the zero degree mark with even stronger winds on the radar.

The average minimum temperature for this time of year is 3.4 degrees, and Warwick will be keeping well below that into the start of next week.

Weatherzone has predicted an increased chance of rain for the weekend, more so for Sunday, but keep your brolly handy on Saturday with a 30% chance of showers.

Today: -3-20 degrees, severe frost

Tomorrow: 0-15 degrees, high frost
