Issued 4th July 2018. A second round of Winter is on the way this weekend after an extended warm period across the state. Above image via BSCH showing minimum temperatures on Monday.
After an unseasonably warm few weeks with patchy rain around, dry cold conditions are set to make a return this weekend. On Saturday a cold front will push through North West, Western, South West and Southern inland areas. Ahead of the front some showers and possible isolated storms are expected through Central and South East districts.
During Sunday the cold dry gusty South West to South East winds will push right across the state. Maximum temperatures across the South East inland and Southern inland districts will struggle to reach above 18C but thats not all… take 5 to 10C off the forecast temps due to the wind chill factor. Below image max temps on Sunday via BSCH.
Brisbane and the South East Coast will feel the chill bit it won’t be too bad with tops around 20C… just stay out of the wind. The colder airmass will also be felt right across Central and Northern QLD on Sunday and Monday.
On Sunday morning some frosts areas are likely to develop across the Granite Belt but then on Monday and Tuesday they will become more widespread across South East inland, Southern inland and Central inland districts.
It won’t last long as winds turn more from the East on Tuesday and Wednesday causing temperatures to warm up again.
