City wakes to cold snap

IPSWICH almost froze its way through yesterday morning, with the temperature dropping to 4.6 degrees at 5.30am.

Clear skies and gentle, dry south-westerly winds were to blame for the brief cold snap, which quickly disappeared with the rising sun.

A pleasant maximum of 24 degrees was recorded at Amberley just after 2pm and, although rainy weather has been forecast for the next seven days, the morning temperatures will be a little bit more bearable.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a minimum of nine degrees for tomorrow, with the presence of cloud keeping the maximum down to a cool 21.

Minimums between 10 and 14 degrees were forecast up until next Thursday, with maximums expected to climb into the low to mid-20s.

There is a chance of a shower today, with the current forecast suggesting rain at times tomorrow, with a shower or two each day from Sunday through to Wednesday.
