Win­ter is com­ing, cooler nights ex­pected in town

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Philippe Coquerand

THIS week res­i­dents woke up to a foggy start in the North Bur­nett re­gion and the fog is pre­dicted to last un­til Fri­day.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy me­te­o­rol­o­gist Ju­lian De Mor­ton said it was due to mois­ture in the air.

He said res­i­dents could ex­pect some cooler nights ahead.

“As we saw a bit of rain last week, it’s brought some mois­ture into the ground and that mois­ture in the lower level of the hemi­sphere and the cooler nights com­bined has meant fog be­ing cre­ated,” Mr De Mor­ton said.

“We should see the fog stay in the re­gion un­til around Fri­day and hope­fully clear­ing up be­fore the week­end.”

Gayndah will likely bear the brunt of the cold, with a min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture be­low 10 de­grees.

“The cooler nights are on the way and we will see the Bur­nett re­gion, in par­tic­u­lar Gayndah and sur­round­ing ar­eas, reach be­low 10 de­grees on Thurs­day and Fri­day night,” Mr De Mor­ton said.

“Max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures should stay around 25–26 de­grees for the next week.

“Tem­per­a­tures will be a lot cooler this week, with a bit of dry air com­ing through res­i­dents should start pre­par­ing for win­ter weather soon de­spite no frost be­ing recorded.”

Show­ers may come our way at the week­end.

“Over the week­end there is a 30% pos­si­bil­ity of some show­ers hit­ting the Bur­nett re­gion,” Mr De Mor­ton said.
