Temps to drop below 10 degrees on the Gold Coast

OVERNIGHT temperatures are tipped to plummet into the single digits on the Gold Coast this weekend.

It’s all thanks to a strong cold front that has blasted southern states with blizzard-like conditions.

The mercury is forecast to drop to just six degrees in Nerang on Saturday morning.


It’ll be a similar story in Coomera too, where temperatures are predicted to get as low as seven degrees.

Robina is on track to hit a low of eight degrees, while those in Surfers Paradise will wake to nine degrees.

Surprisingly, Coolangatta is expected to be the warmest place on the coast on Saturday morning, with the Bureau of Meteorology expecting the southern suburb to stay at or above 10 degrees.

It’ll be a few degrees warmer on Sunday morning, with a low of eight degrees forecast in Nerang, nine degrees in Coomera and Robina and 11 in Surfers Paradise.

Daytime temperatures will also take a hit, despite the forecast clear, dry weather.

The weather bureau says the mercury will struggle to climb above 22 degrees in Surfers Paradise tomorrow and will only hit a maximum of 23 on Sunday.
