IF you thought it was cold on the Gold Coast this morning – you weren’t mistaking.
Residents in Coolangatta woke to just 1C, while those nestled along the hinterland experienced their fourth consecutive morning at 0C or below.

It was slightly warmer closer towards the coast, with 9C recorded at Surfers Paradise and the Southport Seaway.
You’d better keep the ugg boots, extra dooners and winter woolies handy in preparation for tomorrow’s Antarctic surge.
This weekend is set to be the coldest so far this year – possibly the coldest since July 2008.
Widespread frosts are expected across inland areas on Saturday morning, with sub zero temperatures forecast for the hinterland.
Tamborine and Beaudesert are going for a low of -1C tomorrow, with suburbs bordering the ranges also set to feel the bite.
Frosts will be possible in Coomera, where temps will plummet to just 1C, and Nerang 2C.
But again, it should be slightly warmer along the coast, with Surfers and The Spit tipped to dip to around 7C.
The sun will stick around until at least Sunday, where an afternoon coastal shower is possible.
The chances of a shower or two will then increase on each day thereafter, with daytime temps sitting between 18-21C.
Our mornings should begin to warm up from Monday, with lows of 11C at Surfers and 7C at Coomera forecast.
