Treechangers wake to frosty morn

THE blankets were pulled out and the heaters plugged in last night as the mercury sank below zero for the second time this week.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said the temperature plummeted to -1 degree yesterday morning.

"It reached -1 (yesterday) morning and (today) will be the coldest of the week reaching -2 maybe -3," he said.

"There is currently a high pressure system over South Australia which is causing the cold weather. It should drop off during the week."

Ironically, Paul Moffat and Elissa Brown recently moved to Warwick from South Australia and said the Rose City was not quite as chilly as their home town.

"It's not at cold as South Australia," Mr Moffat said.

"But I can still feel the cold."

The pair woke up yesterday morning to frosted windows and icy grass.

Mr Moffat said the best way to remove frost from car windows was with the garden hose while Ms Brown said her father used to use the squeegee and boiling water.

The Bureau spokesman shared a great tip, saying a credit card is good to scrape away light frost.

He said the high would move out over the Tasman for the last part of the week resulting in a slightly warmer and fine weekend.
