Minus four morning, but no record

AFTER the coldest morning yesterday of -4 degrees, nine degrees below average, winter still has a few more cold days in store this week so keep those extra blankets handy.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Bryan Rolstone said yesterday's frost wasn't the coldest minimum temperature in history for the Rose City, it was two degrees higher.

“The south-westerly airflow was enough to create the dry nights resulting in morning frost,” Mr Rolstone said.

He predicted extensive frost across the Southern Downs again this morning which will continue on to Thursday.

With a south-easterly change coming across on Friday the conditions will be warmer and will be above the average minimum of 4.8 degrees.

Mr Rolstone said there would also be cloud cover on Friday with the chance of rain and the combination of the moisture and wind would prevent frosts.

Tomorrow will reach a minimum of 2 degrees and a maximum of 16.
