Warwick shivers through subzero temps

WARWICK residents have battled through another freezing morning as today's temperatures plummeted below zero.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Rosa Hoff said the Rose City reached a low of -0.3C at 6.40am, but it felt more like -2.3C outside.

At Applethorpe, that chill was even more apparent thanks to a minimum of -1.2C, which felt more like a brisk -4.6C.

Across the border at Glen Innes, temperatures dropped to a dramatic low of -9.3C at 4.50am.

Ms Hoff said the low temperatures were accompanied by little wind and light frost.

"There's been light and variable winds this morning, particularly around Applethorpe," she said.

The forecaster also said temperatures were expected to increase later this morning and into the weekend.

"In terms of temperatures, we're still having quite a warm day when the morning frost cools off, with a top of 23C today," she said.

"When the cloud cover and rainfall come in from tomorrow, the minimums will go back up to 9 to 10C, but we're set to see them drop back down to 3 to 4C next week."

While rainfall is predicted for the region from Friday, Ms Hoff warned residents not to get their hopes up.

"The best chances of seeing some rainfall are for tomorrow, with that clearing off the coast by Saturday night, but really we're looking at the bulk of rainfall falling further inland, not as much Warwick, as places such as Charleville," she said.
