Rain for close of holidays

HOPEFULLY the kids have had a chance to make the most of the sunshine these holidays, with a wet weekend likely to see out the school break.

Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said tomorrow would be the wettest day, with up to 15mm of rain on the cards.

"Generally it is going to be cool and there will be a few showers about," he said.

"How much rainfall is not so easy, but it could be as little as less than a couple of millimetres or as much as 10 to 15mm."

Mr Dutschke said the rain would be the result of a low-pressure trough on the tropical Queensland trough and said some rain could persist on Sunday.

Today and Saturday are set to be relatively cool

"Saturday will most likely struggle to get past 20 degrees - it may sneak up to 21 - and there will be very little sunshine," he said.

"On Sunday there should be are fair bit of sunshine, showers should clear and it should reach 25 degrees. That warmth should last into most of next week."

While the impending arrival of winter is already starting to be felt across the region, Mr Dutschke said the first frost of the season was still some time away.

"It will be quite a while before we get a really cold night and the frost is still a way off," he said.

"I would say the frosts probably won't appear until the very end of the month or early in May."
