Warwick freezes

RESIDENTS across Warwick awoke to chattering teeth and a strong desire to remain snuggled in bed yesterday morning - and rightly so.

Yesterday got down to -3 degrees, 10 degrees below average, and many stepped outside to a layer of frost across their lawn.

While the cool mornings are here to stay, at least for the rest of the week, temperatures will gradually warm up as we near the weekend.

Bureau of Metrology forecaster Gavin Holcombe said stocking up on firewood might be a good idea.

"(Today) will be not quite as cool (as yesterday) but it will still be cool," Mr Holcombe said.

Tomorrow is expected to be slightly warmer again, but only up a couple of degrees.

"Thursday will still be three to five degrees below average and Friday should be slightly warmer again," he said.

Mr Holcombe said the cool temperatures were due to a high pressure system sweeping across from West Victoria.

"It's driving the cool, dry southerly air across the state," he said.

Today is predicted to reach a top of 20 degrees and 22 degrees tomorrow.

There are chances of another frost in the coming days, so bare that in mind when scouring your wardrobe for your daily attire.

For those still thinking they can survive winter without a heater or electric blanket, you may want to re-think that one too.
