Warwick to freeze through sub-zero temperatures this week

IT MAY have been mild for the past few mornings in Warwick, but don't put those winter woollies away just yet.

Temperatures are set to plummet below zero for the rest of the working week and frost is expected to make a return.

Warwick will shiver through a minimum temperature of -3 tomorrow, then -2 on Thursday and -1 on Friday.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Adam Blazak said a south-westerly change was coming in to bring cool, dry air to the region.

Widespread frost was expected, he said.

"Overnight we're expecting those winds to die down a bit and that'll allow those minimum temperatures die down,” he said.

Warwick hit a low of 8.5 degrees this morning, considerably above the average minimum temperature for August of 3 degrees.

Mr Blazak said the wind would be a bit fresh today, but then days for the rest of the week would be warm.

"There will be cool mornings but once the sun's up the days are reasonably warmish,” he said.

Warwick is expected to reach a top of 18 today before climbing to 19 tomorrow and 20 on Thursday.

The small burst of rain showering over Warwick yesterday only brought a rainfall total of about one millimetre and there is no more rain on the horizon for the next seven days.
