Win­ter has now of­fi­cially ar­rived

Bur­nett to ex­pe­ri­ence strong winds and cold weather

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Philippe Coquerand

THE North Bur­nett is ex­pected to draw in cold weather as win­ter of­fi­cially ar­rives.

With the tem­per­a­tures set to drop be­low six de­grees, Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy me­te­o­rol­o­gist Adam Woods said peo­ple should start pre­par­ing now.

“With it of­fi­cially be­ing win­ter, peo­ple should know by now that it will get cold so they should wear warmer clothes,” Mr Woods said.

“Thurs­day and Fri­day should see some show­ers de­vel­op­ing in the re­gion with a strong wind warn­ing in place for all of south east Queens­land.”

Due to a high pres­sure sys­tem form­ing across the re­gion, con­di­tions will not be good for the next few days and a warn­ing to not go boat­ing is in place.

“Peo­ple shouldn’t be boat­ing in this type of weather as the winds will be strong,” Mr Woods said.

“The winds de­vel­oped due to no real pre­cip­i­ta­tion in the air and also a high pres­sure sys­tem form­ing in the south east of Queens­land is caus­ing winds to be stronger than usual.

“The next few days should have strong winds, how­ever it should clear up by the week­end.

“Places like Kin­garoy and to the south west will see frost hit their re­gion for the next few days, whereas places like the North Bur­nett should be good for now.”

The max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures should hit around 23 de­grees.
