SWAP THE BIKINI FOR UGG BOOTS

- ALEXANDRIA UTTING

DON’T let the warmer temperatur­es we experience­d at the weekend fool you – winter is here.

The first day of winter is set to bring cooler temperatur­es from this afternoon onwards, with the mercury falling to a minimum of 9C by tomorrow.

However, average daily temperatur­es will sit around 20C for most of the week.

Sam Campbell from the Brisbane office of the Bureau of Meteorolog­y said the warmer air mass lingering over Queensland during May would move on from the beginning of June.

“From late Monday and Tuesday onwards, we’ll be getting a colder air mass and that’s really going to drop the temperatur­es by about 5C from what we saw last week,” Mr Campbell said.

“These temperatur­es are fairly average for this time of year and they’re only about 2C below the June average for last year.”
