Toowoomba to shiver through final day of winter
TEMPERATURES are set to warm up as chilly winters give way to fine spring temperatures, but not before another morning of frosty starts.
Bureau of Meteorology weather forecaster Diana Eadie said Toowoomba and the Darling Downs were set for one more day of frosts before temperatures broke into the low to mid 20s this week.
The bureau forecast frosts for this morning which are likely to be repeated tomorrow.
"It's going to be quite an abrupt start to spring so Tuesday and in particular Wednesday, temperatures are going to be around 23 degrees," Ms Eadie said.
"It's going to happen quite quickly as we have a trough that's pushing through from the west and it is associated with more warm and moist air.
"It is definitely going to have a spring feel to it and that will make it about two degrees above the Toowoomba average."
Ms Eadie said it wasn't surprising if Toowoomba residents felt a chill over the weekend with temperatures two degrees below the monthly average.
