WARWICK residents shivered through a wet and windy weekend, and change isn't likely in the coming days.

The mercury plummeted at the weekend, with temperatures up to nine degrees below average.

The average maximum temperature for April is 25 degrees, which is significantly higher than the 16 and 17 degrees Warwick endured on Friday and Saturday.

On top of rugging up to beat the cold, residents also pulled on their raincoats and opened their umbrellas to combat the wet weekend.

Official records show 15mm fell across the city on Saturday.

Weatherzone meteorologist Josh Fisher said while temperatures are set to increase slightly, average temperatures will be out of reach for Warwick.

"The next few days are likely to see some cooler temps as south-easterly winds push in," he said.

"Those temps will stick in the low-20s for the remainder for the week."

Today is expected to be mostly sunny, with temperatures ranging between 11 and 21 degrees.

While the sun is set to linger throughout tomorrow, overnight temperatures are likely to drop off to a cool 10 degrees.

Showers are expected to return on Wednesday, with temperatures to remain between 11 and 22 degrees.
