Gold Coasters shiver through chilly Autumn morning

If you couldn’t feel your hands or feet this morning, don’t worry you weren’t alone.

Gold Coasters woke to freezing cold temperatures, with some parts dropping to single digits.

Coolangatta residents found themselves reaching for an extra blanket with the mercury dropping to an icy 7 degrees at 3.30am, while it was a slightly warmer 9 degrees at the Gold Coast Seaway around the same time.


Just northwest of the coast, Beaudesert locals shivered through 2.3 degrees, while Warwick dropped to a freezing cold low of -1.8 at 6.00am.

At the time of writing (7.45am), the Gold Coast was a little warmer in double digits at 14C.

The temps are expected to rise this morning, with an expected top of 23 degrees predicted for today.
