Cold snap keeps region shivering

KEEP those heaters handy — the cold snap of the past few days is due to be extended well into next week.

After two days of showers and rain, the Bundaberg region is headed for bright, clear and cool weather, with some gusty winds.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Gavin Holcombe said temperatures over the next few days could get down to 6-8C on the coast, with 2-4C expected inland.

Areas such as Gayndah and Monto could also expect frosty mornings over the next few days.

Mr Holcombe said a low pressure system over the Tasman Sea was bringing in south-westerly winds to the region, blowing cold air up from the south.

“It's going to last for some time, with another cold front coming through on Sunday,” he said.

“It won't be until at least Tuesday or Wednesday morning before it starts to warm up again.”

Mr Holcombe said there was no more rain on the immediate horizon.

“The earliest you may see rain is towards the end of next week,” he said.

“But you might start seeing some showers about the middle of the week.”
