Spectacular winter day on the Gold Coast

GOLD Coasters can expect another spectacular winter day today, with maximum temperatures tipped to be well above the average.

Forecasters predict the Coast will hit a top of 26 degrees – almost four degrees above the long-term average for August.

After dipping to a low of 14.6 degrees at 6.30 this morning, the mercury had already risen to a nice 21.4 degrees by 10am.


It’ll be mostly sunny for the best part of the day, before just the slight chance of a shower later tonight.

Tomorrow, the weather bureau is tipping cooler, more cloudier conditions with a high of just 20 degrees and a medium 50 per cent chance of a few morning showers.
