Low temperatures and high fire dangers coming to Warwick

RESIDENTS can put away the thermals for the weekend - but not out of reach.

Warming up, temperatures will reach a top of 24 degrees today then drop as low as zero.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Sam Campbell said we could see another record cold from tomorrow.

"We'll be seeing cool mornings again into Sunday and Monday sitting at below zero,” Mr Campbell said.

"We can expect the temperature to drop by Tuesday, where we could see another record low with a prediction of minus 4C for Warwick.”

An increase in winds will be the main contributing factor for tomorrow's cold snap with a top of just 18 degrees.

"A trough will move through Sunday morning, with some gusty southwesterly winds picking up speed at 25-45km/h,” Mr Campbell said.

"As the cool air comes from the south, the temperature will drop six degrees from Saturday to Sunday.”

The forecaster said strong winds were typical for August and he warned us to be vigilant about fires.

"It's not unusual to see troughs coming through this time of the year,” Mr Campbell said.

"However it is fair to say this is a vigorous trough - the gusty winds lead to very high fire dangers.”
