MOTHER'S Day means family according to Carmel Waters who was one of four generations at Leslie Park yesterday.

Carmel was joined at the family luncheon by many relatives, including her mother Nell Sams, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Her two daughters Helen and Karen Waters were in the park.

Helen said Mother's Day was a celebration of family.

"Be grateful for the people in your life," she said.

It was her first time at Leslie Park since new play equipment was installed opposite the Warwick Police Station and the littlies certainly gave the equipment the thumbs up.

"The kids love it. I am really impressed," Helen said.

Mrs Sams is the mother of 10, four of whom live in the Warwick area.

"I was reared in the Warwick area; we lived out of town," she said.

"I have been to plenty of get-togethers in Leslie Park."

While the weather was nearly picture-perfect yesterday, Helen said it was bound to be a bit windy this time of the year.

The fine weather on Mother's Day will continue for the rest of the week but Southern Downs residents better prepare for the return of frosts.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Ben Annells said the first frost of the week on the Southern Downs and Granite Belt areas could be this morning.

"Frosts will be more extreme on Tuesday and Wednesday," he said.

The bureau is forecasting a minimum air temperature of five degrees in Warwick this morning and near zero temperatures on the Granite Belt.

"It should be one or two in Warwick on Tuesday and Wednesday and below zero on the Granite Belt," he said.

The moderate winds experienced yesterday will continue today from the south and south-west and then ease.

"The winds will be light and variable from Tuesday," Mr Annells said.

No rain is in sight but there was 9mm late Saturday at Maroon Dam in a storm.

The only other rain area in recent days has been in Far North Queensland
