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.”
