But it was far colder in other parts of the state, falling to -3.1ºC in Kingaroy and Oakey, -2.4ºC in Warwick and -1ºC in Ipswich. It fell just below freezing at Amberley and Beaudesert (-0.2ºC) and just under 1ºC in Gympie and Toowoomba, Weatherzone南京夜网.au senior meteorologist Brett Dutschke said.
”The overnight low was Brisbane’s coldest night since last winter and that’s the case for a good chunk of southeast Queensland – the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast,” he said.
Coolangatta fell to 3.8ºC and Maroochydore to 4.4ºC.
Mr Dutschke said the coldest recorded minimums were, as usual in the state’s west.
”Some real standouts are in the west of the state, mainly west and northwest. In fact for Cannington (3ºC) and Longreach (1ºC) it was their coldest night in eight years. In Winton (2°C) it was their coldest in seven years.”
In Brisbane and Ipswich today, maximum temperatures are predicted to reach 19ºC, while it will reach a top of 18ºC on the Gold and Sunshine coasts.
”The coldest place in Queensland today will probably be Stanthorpe, which will probably only get to 10ºC or 11ºC degrees today,” Mr Dutschke said, while Toowoomba is expected to reach a top of 12ºC.
It’s expected to be much the same tomorrow before warming up later in the week, he said.
”Tonight and tomororw morning looks very similar to last night and this morning, mostly clear skies and top temperatures much the same. Tomorrow during the day will only be marginally warmer in most parts of the state compared to today, about the same or a degree warmer,” he said.
”Progressively [during the week] both nights and days will become warmer but the nights will be the most noticeable change, particularly near the coast.”
In Brisbane, overnight minimum temperatures are expected to rise slightly to around 7ºC on Thursday and 9ºC on Friday, before remaining at about the 10ºC average on the weekend and rising to 13ºC on Monday night. Maximum temperatures will rise after tomorrow’s predicted 19ºC to remain about 20ºC-21ºC during the rest of the week.
