Frost to return after some rain
AS EXPECTED, the clouds rolled in and the skies opened up for a wet weekend, with about 6mm of rain falling around Warwick on Saturday for the wettest day of July.
While Saturday started at 8 degrees, the mercury only topped a chilly maximum of 11 degrees.
Sunday started out similarly at 9 degrees but managed to reach 18 degrees.
Clouds were still hanging around yesterday but Bureau of Meteorology senior weather forecaster Tony Auden said the outlook for the next few days was clearer.
“There were a couple of showers around yesterday and there is an outside chance of a shower today,” he said.
“But from tomorrow onwards we are looking at a return to fine days and cold nights with a possibility of more frosts.”
Today was expected to be the warmest of the week reaching 19 degrees before temperatures dropped again.
Wednesday has the highest chance of a frost with maximums for the following days only creeping up to about 14 degrees.
He said Warwick was experiencing fairly average weather for July.
“It's a regular pattern for this time of year although the rain was a little bit unseasonal,” he said.
“But the cold bursts and frosts are what we can generally expect this time of year.”
- Seven-day rainfall for central Warwick to yesterday was 14mm.
- Rainfall so far for July is 27.4mm.
