First weekend of freedom will give you chills
THE mercury is set to drop even further today after southeast Queenslanders woke up to a chilly morning yesterday caused by a powerful cold front passing across the state.
Roma was the coldest place in Queensland, as minimum temperatures plummeted by 15C.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Jonty Hall said cool conditions were expected into the middle of next week.
"The overnight minimums will drop away... but very similar days really with similar wind speeds," he said.
"There is plenty of sunshine around, but there still will be a fair bit of this westerly breeze - the best bet, like on a typical winters day, will be to get out of the wind and into the sunshine."
Brisbane is expected to experience a 10C minimum and 24C maximum today and tomorrow. Frost is forecast in the state's southern interior.
