Brace yourself: Cold mornings are coming to Gladstone
YOU may have noticed a cool change in the weather this morning.
Temperatures dropped to 14.7C and the region is expected to be even cooler for the week to come.
Saturday and Sunday are forecast to drop to 11C, Monday 8C and Tuesday 9C.
Meteorologist Lachlan Stoney said the fall in temperature was due to a series of cold fronts moving through the southern half of the country.
"They will be pushing up some colder air into Queensland and that air will be quite dry," Mr Stoney said.
"Conditions are expecting to be quite dry and clear skies the next couple of nights.
"We will have cool mornings but it's not until Sunday we see the maximums to drop."
Sunday's max is expected to drop to 22C with 23C predicted for the following three days.
It's cooler than the July average minimum of 12C.
"It isn't anything particularly unusual in terms of the cold conditions," Mr Stoney said.
"It's very mild at the moment and we're going back to more typical."
If you think Gladstone is cold, spare a thought for Biloela residents who are expecting frosts this weekend as they head to below 5C.
