Rug up, winter's coming

IT MAY have been tempting to stay hidden beneath the doona yesterday morning as the mercury fell to just 10.1 degrees.

And while it wasn't Bundaberg's coolest minimum this year - the mercury reached just 8.6 degrees on May 7 - Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Gavin Holcombe said it was lower than the typical May minimums and a sign that winter was on the way.

"While it was well below the May minimum average of about 14 degrees, as we get closer to the start of winter we can expect this type of cool change," he said.

The same weather system is also keeping daytime temperatures cool.

"Generally Bundaberg's May maximum temperature is about 25 degrees," Mr Holcombe said.

"Yesterday the maximum only reached 23."

Mr Holcombe said a large high across the eastern part of the Great Australian Bight was driving dry southern winds across the state.

The high is expected to move out of the area tomorrow, shifting winds across to the east.

"From Wednesday we should see temperatures progressively warm up, closer to the average," he said.
