Cold nights prove a contrast

IF YOU found yourself shivering through the night and reaching for the doona the past few evenings - you weren't alone.

The mercury dipped a massive seven degrees below average on Thursday night - hitting a seven-degree minimum.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Chris Joseph said while the nights called for flannelette sheets the days would remain fine and sunny.

"For the next few days right through to the weekend should be similar conditions," he said.

"The maximum temperature was 29 (yesterday) which is just close to the average, just one degree above and that's because of the sunny clear skies. There will be a few days with similar conditions expected through the first part of next week," Mr Joseph said.

He said south-easterlies would bring more moisture by the middle of next week.

"That will have an effect on rising the overnight temperatures to 12 or 13 degrees but it will still be mostly fine conditions," Mr Joseph said.

While Rose City residents may have felt the chill, Stanthorpe copped it even worse with a five-degree minimum Thursday night.
