First frost set to hit the region

THE first frost of the year for the Southern Downs is expected in coming days.

Showers are expected today, with thunderstorms tomorrow before the minimum temperature is set to drop to three degrees on Sunday morning, along with a moderate frost risk.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Julian De Morton said the frost for the Granite Belt would arrive once forecasted strong winds subsided.

"As the wind drops off we should get some frost on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday," he said.

But Mr De Morton said the cold weather was certainly on its way.

Minimums below five degrees are forecast for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday next week.

Mr De Morton said the wild weekend weather would potentially even bring some sleet to the Granite Belt.
