Feeling chilled? It’s about to get colder

BLACKALL Range residents are set to endure one of the coldest June days on record with lows of 4 degrees forecast for Thursday and Friday.

A slow moving high pressure system has chilled the south east and could bring frost and below freezing temperatures to Toowoomba and the Granite Belt.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Maleny will reach a maximum 15 degrees tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, with only a slight increase to 17 degree highs by next Tuesday.

The lowest maximum temperature on record was 14.1 degrees while the lowest temperature recorded, using the Nambour weather gauge, was 2.6 degrees.

The coldest day of 2022 was recorded on June 5 with a low of 6.2 degrees.

Beerwah and Glasshouse Country towns won’t fare much better with minimums of 6 and 7 degrees tomorrow and Friday respectively and maximum temperatures in the high teens.

Snow isn’t likely due to the dry air, but the cold conditions are expected to continue for at least another week.
