Shivering on sub-zero morning

IPSWICH shivered its way through its second consecuritve sub-zero morning yesterday, but it looks as though there could be warmer days ahead.

The temperature at Amberley weather station dropped to minus 0.8 yesterday at 6.39am - even colder than Tuesday morning's minimum of minus 0.1.

Gentle south-westerly winds and clear skies also resulted in another generous serving of frost to the low-lying areas of town.

But the sun warmed the city to a comfortable 19 degrees by mid afternoon.

Similar conditions were forecast for today, with only a slightly warmer night and a forecast maximum of 20 degrees.

Winds will begin to turn south-easterly tomorrow, with higher overnight temperatures and the chance of showers throughout the weekend and into early next week.

The arrival of more moderate south-easterly winds was also expected to bring slightly warmer daytime temperatures, averaging in the low 20s.
