IT'S OFFICIAL: Kingaroy coldest place in Queensland

IF you were unusually cold this morning, you weren't alone.

Kingaroy shivered in the early hours when it was officially the coldest place in Queensland.

At 5:37am this morning the weather cooled to a near chilling 2.9 degrees, a full nine degrees below the April average.

Forecaster Michelle Berry said the cold snap was due to a dry south westerly air stream.

"The cool air really allowed the temperature to plummet," she said.

It wasn't a record breaker however, with official coldest April on record still -0.6 degrees from a cold morning back in 2008.
