Wind to linger but winter nearing

GUSTY conditions are expected to hang around this week, with winds easing off mid-week before picking up to fresh again later in the week.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Gavin Holcombe said the south-easterlies which had been roaring through the Southern Downs for the past few days would continue to be a pest.

“Winds will ease back a little bit over the next couple of days; I think after that it could then pick up again later in the week,” he said.

Mr Holcombe said the wind speed had topped about 40 kilometres in the last few days.

He said temperatures would stay relatively warm while the winds stuck around, hovering around a maximum of 25 degrees and minimum of 15 degrees for the Rose City early this week.

Mr Holcombe said Warwick residents would not see the freezing temperatures the Rose City is so well known for until possibly later in the month.

He said if a big high came through later in the month and brought dry air with it, Warwick could expect some cooler temperatures.

Mr Holcombe said the overcast conditions would hang around this week.

However, he said while there would be some cloud and showers about, no large falls of rain were expected.
