It's Sunshine Coast's coldest day so far... at 23 degrees?

NO surprises here it's been the hottest May on the Sunshine Coast on record.

And while winter may be less than a week away, don't expect to be taking out the winter woollies just yet.

Sky News Weather meteorologist Ben Domensino said a cooler spell was forecast for the weekend with the Sunshine Coast set to experience its coldest day of the year.

But here's the clincher, its only expected to get down to 23 degrees which is the average day time temperature for this time of the year.

"It's pretty significant in itself that the average day is the coldest day so far," Mr Domensino said.

While the dry, warm autumn has been taking its toll on the region's dam levels, with Baroon Pocket down to 60.2%, rain is predicted.

Mr Domensino said latest indications showed the region was in for a warm, wet winter.

"The Sunshine Coast hasn't recorded anything more than a millimetre since May 3," Mr Domensino said.

"Normally the region has 164mms in May, it has only had 71.

"April was also below average. But the latest El Nino outlook, published today, has shown we are now in neutral conditions.

"It also looks like we are going into a La Nina, there is a 50% chance of this in winter. This means a wet weather pattern.

"The outlook combined with above average temperatures on the East Coast makes it more than likely we will see above average rain for winter in South East Queensland.

A SEQwater spokesman said the region's drinking water supply was being supplemented from Brisbane to allow an upgrade at Landers Shute since March.

From next week, the flow direction will be changed to supply parts of the Sunshine Coast with water sourced from the Noosa Water Treatment Plant to take the strain off Baroon Pocket.

"The SEQ Water Grid allows Seqwater to move treated water to where it is needed most across South East Queensland," the spokesman said.

"It is especially important in times of drought and when maintenance is needed at our dams, water treatment plants and pipelines."
