Severe weather eases but chilly days to come

The Gold Coast has woken up to its coldest morning of the year so far but it’s about to get a whole lot colder.

The mercury dropped to 12.1 degrees just before 6.30am, but it felt more like 10 degrees.

Coolangatta dipped to 9.2 degrees while Canungra dropped to 6.9 degrees.


The wind has eased significantly overnight after Tuesday’s cold blast but the city can still expect a chilly breeze across Wednesday with westerly winds of up to 35 km/h.

The severe weather warning that was in place across parts of southeast Queensland has now been cancelled.

However, a severe weather warning remains in place for parts of the New South Wales northern tablelands.

With the winds dying off, that will see temperatures dive even further on Thursday and Friday.

The mercury will dip to 9 degrees tomorrow morning but it’s likely to feel colder than that.

It will get as low as 8 degrees in Coomera and 7 degrees in Nerang.

Friday will be a similar story with a minimum temperature of just 10 degrees.
