Mercury to drop as low as 5 degrees

CHILLLY with a chance of snow is the forecast for some parts of Queensland as Bundaberg prepares for five degree lows from Sunday.

Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said today would be noticeably cooler than yesterday with 21 degree tops before warming up slighty tomorrow to 22 or 23 degrees.

"Then once we get to Sunday, the next colder change comes through," Mr Dutschke said.

"It's probably barely going to reach 20 degrees tops."

Mr Dutschke said the low temperatures would stick around until Tuesday and bring very cold nights.

"It could get colder than five degrees," he said.

"It's the coldest you've seen this year."

But while the temperatures will be cold, Mr Dutschke said a blunt "no" to Bundaberg getting any chance of Queensland's forecast snow.

Mr Dutschke said Stanthorpe, Applethorpe and the Granite Belt had the highest chance of snow.

"I'd say it's more likely to just get sleet, everything would have to fall into place for snow," he said.

"It's possible, I wouldn't rule it out, at this stage on the weekend is the best chance."

Mr Dutschke said it wouldn't be the first time Queensland had seen snow.

"It happens every few years, it doesn't happen every year but every few years," he said.
