Ice Age hits the region with sub-zero mornings

WHILE most of us were rugged up in the covers, Warwick's dedicated weather photographer Chris McFerran was out getting his signature shots.

Trolling the grounds in Clintonvale in the early hours of yesterday morning, Mr McFerran was waiting for the frost.

As the mercury dropped to -3.8 degrees a nearby creek was glistening with incredible icicles from a nearby irrigator.

"It was an Ice Age in golden light,” Mr McFerran said.

"I went out there 10 minutes before sunrise, worked out the angle and waited.”

The photographer said we will be seeing more frost in the coming week.

"The next three or four mornings will be frosty and we're expected some severe frost again on Monday,” Mr McFerran said.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Crock said the weekend will slightly warm up.

"The rest of the week the overnight temperature will sit below zero degrees, another dry air mass will then push through on Sunday and behind that will be another round of cold mornings,” Mr Crock said.
