Chilly front to hit South Burnett this week

THE winter months are only days away and the South Burnett region is about to experience the wrath of the cold this week.

While the days will see temperature highs reaching between 17 and 20 degrees, the nights are expected to drop to single digits.

Tomorrow, the daytime temperature will reach low to mid 20s before falling to between 6 and 11 degrees overnight.

The sun will be out shining again on Wednesday morning reaching a high of 20°c ahead of a cold front sweeping overnight with a low of 3°c.

Daytime temperatures continue to drop throughout the week with Thursday reaching a maximum of 18 and a minimum of 5°c at night.

Friday will mark the last day of autumn and is forecast to be the coldest day of the week.

Despite a sunny prediction, temperatures are only expected to reach a maximum of 17 degrees.

The South Burnett will really feel like winter overnight with a low of just 2°c.

The first weekend of winter will see a high of 19°c and a low of 6°c.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Annabelle Ford said due to a trough moving off the coast later today it is going bring cooler weather.

"For the South Burnett region that means from tomorrow we will see sunny days and clear nights and that will lead to cooler night time temperatures,” she said.

"Looking towards the weekend you could see some cooler days and milder nights because of clouds moving in.”
