Temps to drop over the weekend

By Jeremy Sollars

Snow or no snow, we may indeed see some morning frost on the ground this weekend across the Southern Downs and Granite Belt.

The Bureau of Meteorology is tipping a “cool and dry airmass” to move across Queensland in the next few days, combining with a surface trough to bring chilly overnight and early morning conditions to inland southern Queensland, but still relatively warm days.

Warwick can expect an overnight low of four degrees tonight, Friday 11 May and a daytime maximum of 17 tomorrow, with a low of five degrees overnight Saturday and a top of 19 on Sunday.

Stanthorpe is looking at an overnight low of just one degree tonight and a top of 13 tomorrow – with windy conditions expected on the Granite Belt for Saturday – with an overnight low of three degrees and a top on Sunday of 13.

Both overnight and daytime temperatures will increase slightly from Monday with sunny conditions expected in both the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas.

Dry conditions are persisting, with Warwick having officially recorded 11.2mm of rain so far in May (Hermitage) and just 2.3mm in Stanthorpe (Leslie Parade).
