Morn­ings to drop to sin­gle dig­its


A RE­TURN to chilly morn­ings is on the cards for Mackay, with fore­casts show­ing morn­ings will drop back to sin­gle dig­its next week.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy is fore­cast­ing the chill to re­turn on Tues­day, with a min­i­mum of 7 de­grees for Mackay and –1 de­grees for Cler­mont.

Mean­while, am­a­teur weather chasers ‘Mackay and District Weather Up­dates’ is tip­ping –5 de­grees for Eun­gella on Tues­day and –6 on Wed­nes­day.

There’s no rain on the hori­zon ei­ther, with a weak­en­ing up­per level trough mov­ing east­wards across Queens­land, with de­creas­ing po­ten­tial for show­ers, storms and ar­eas of rain over western and cen­tral parts of the state.

“An as­so­ci­ated sur­face trough will shift slowly east and ex­tend a cooler and drier air mass in its wake,” the bureau fore­casts.

“The troughs will shift off the east coast dur­ing Fri­day with fine, sunny days de­vel­op­ing across much of the state for the week­end.

“A more sub­stan­tial cold front will then sweep across the state on Sun­day and Mon­day lead­ing to cold morn­ings, with wide­spread frost ar­eas, and clear, cool days.”
