Coldest morning of the year so far forecast this week

With winter well and truly upon us, parts of the Gold Coast are expected to experience their coldest temperatures so far this year over the next few days.

The icy blast is expected to start tonight and last for most of this week.

Shane Kennedy from the Bureau of Meteorology says the cool and dry conditions are thanks to a trough that moved off the east coast this morning.

“Maximum temperatures 2 to 3 degrees below the average and minimum temperatures 3 to 5 degrees below average for many locations in the State, with the coldest morning expected on Thursday,” Mr Kennedy said.

While no records are likely to be broken this time around, the morning chill will have us hiding under the doona for as long as possible.

Minimum temperatures are forecast dip to 7 degrees at the Seaway from Tuesday through to Thursday and just 4 degrees at Nerang while Canungra could get close to zero.

The coolest the Seaway has been this so far this year is is 9.9 degrees which was recorded earlier this month while Coolangatta dipped to 4.3 degrees.

The average minimum temp at the Seaway for June is 13.2 degrees.

Maximum temperatures will only hit between 19 and 21 but the winds will make it feel cooler than that.

However it will remain sunny and dry until the weekend when Saturday could see some slight showers.

Global cooling!
Where are all the activists now?
Probably in their warm homes and relying on coal fired power to keep them warm and safe.
