Expect clear skies, cool days in lead up to New Year's Eve

WARWICK will see in the new year on a cooler, drier note than Christmas.

The Bureau of the Meteorology is predicting clearer skies and cooler days in the lead up to New Year's festivities.

The forecasts point to the Southern Downs missing out on any of the effects of the monsoon trough in northern Queensland.

Forecaster Adam Blazak said after yesterday's showers the Rose City would start to dry out for a few days.

"From Tuesday (tomorrow) onwards we'll see fairly sunny and dry conditions," he said.

The forecasts are in stark contrast to the past few days, with widespread falls of more than 25mm since Christmas Day.

Roads were closed to the east of Warwick yesterday, where more than 30mm of rain has fallen in two days.

While the rain will stop today, the cool will stick around for the week.

Temperatures are forecast to stay well below the average maximum of 29 degrees.

"Today we'll see temperatures five degrees below average," Mr Blazak said.

"Minimums on Tuesday and Wednesday will be three degrees below average."
