Gold Coast gets one last blast of winter

THE Gold Coast is set to be hit with one last blast of winter before spring gets a chance to settle in.

Raised dust, sunny skies and warm temperatures marked the turn of the season on Saturday.

But it appears winter has one last hurrah left in store before making way for the warmer weather.


The Bureau of Meteorology says it’ll be a cool, showery start to the working week on the Coast, with anywhere between 20-60mm of rain forecast to fall over the next three days.

The Gold Coast could see anywhere between 8-15mm fall on Monday, followed by a further 10-30mm on Tuesday and another 4-15mm on Wednesday.

Temperatures will also plummet, with the mercury tipped to struggle to climb above 19 degrees at Coolangatta on Tuesday.

Conditions should improve slightly towards the end of the week, with only the chance of a shower or two on Thursday and Friday.

Daytime temperatures will also increase as the week progresses, reaching 25 degrees by the weekend.
