Frost is coming to the Burnett and showers might be too
ANYTHING can happen to the weather in the North Burnett over the next few days.
That is what Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Nicholas Shera has predicted.
“It’s going to be interesting, a lot of uncertainty because an upper trough is coming from the west of the state,” he said.
“Thursday (today) there could be some showers, as there’s high pressure up the coast pushing moisture up. “It will go a bit inland. “It could get to Monto and Gayndah.”
The weekend, for the Eidsvold Races, rain could get up to 16mm.
“On Friday, there’s a high chance of showers,” Mr Shera said.
“But it’s on the Saturday that the upper trough will really bring in the rain and thunderstorms.
“The likely range is 5-16mm of rain.”
The ice-cold early morning temperature is average for this time of year.
“The temperatures will stay around what is expected for June,” Mr Shera said.
“On Monday, the temperature was a bit below average for Monto and Gayndah.
“However, it wasn’t anything record breaking.”
Not long ago, the maximum high temperature for towns in the region was about four degrees above the average for what is expected this time of year.
“It’s definitely not as warm as it has been,” Mr Shera said.
“It will stay around the low 20s for the weekend.”
The average maximum temperature for Monto in June is 21.2, and the average low range temperature is 6.8.
Gayndah is slightly warmer.
Gayndah’s June maximum temperature average is at 22 degrees and its minimum temperature average is 9.
