GOLD Coasters have woken to a fresh spring morning, with temperatures plummeting into the single digits.
The mercury dropped to a crisp four degrees at Coolangatta around 5am as winds tended more southerly overnight.
That is an incredible 15 degrees colder than yesterday morning, or nine degrees below average for this time of year.

It was slightly warmer further north at the Gold Coast Seaway, however, hitting a low of eight degrees around 3am.
That is still seven degrees below the September average for the Seaway.
It is quite the contrast when compared to Thursday when residents woke to morning temps around 20 degrees.
The crisp morning today has paved the way for picture perfect, near windless spring conditions across the city.
The Bureau of Meteorology says the Coast can expect to see temps max out around 23 degrees along the beach.
Suburbs further inland, particularly around Nerang and Coomera, are tipped to hit 26.
But tomorrow will be even better.
It’s tipped to be yet another spectacular sunny Saturday, with top daytime temps of 26 degrees along the beach.
More summer-like temperatures of 28 degrees are expected in Nerang – that’s four degrees above average.
It’ll be a similar story on Sunday too before winds increase slightly during the evening.
