Bloody freezing! How cold was it where you are?

How cold was that?

In case some of us were tricked into thinking it would be smooth sailing weather wise for the rest of winter, here comes the reminder that some Queenslanders are waking up to icy temperatures.

Toowoomba woke up feeling like it was 2.3 degrees even if the thermometer showed 6.9.

To the west, St George woke up with 2.8 degrees which is bad enough, except that it felt much colder.

Bureau of Meterology reckons their apparent temperature was 1 degree.

On the Sunshine Coast, where people were only last weekend enjoying some nice warm autumn weather, felt like it was 3 degrees, compared to the actual temperature of 5.3.

In western Central Queensland, Biloela had 4.8 this morning, which felt like 1.9.

For Gympie, it felt like 1.4 degrees (while the temp gauge showed a still-chilly 3 degrees.

Kingaroy hit 4.5, but again, felt like it was 2.8.

BOM predicts while it might be a little cooler, the weather should be fine:

Fine conditions for most of the state, although some high cloud will move across southern and central districts but no rainfall is expected

A slight to medium chance of showers along the northern tropical coast.

Early frosts are possible about parts of the southern interior.

Light to moderate west to southwesterly winds over the far south, tending moderate south to southeasterly over the remainder of the state fresh at times in the northwest.
