BIG CHILL: Region in a flurry over white weekend rumours

THE community is in a flurry with talks of a white weekend for our region's south, but while we can expect frosty mornings and freezing nights, the chance of snow is unlikely.

A cold surge of south-westerly wind will whip into the region on Friday bringing temperatures down overnight.

Residents should stock up on wood and stoke their fires early, because according to Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Harry Clark, the real chill will settle in on Saturday.

Temperatures will drop to a minimum of four degrees in Warwick and one degree in Stanthorpe.

There is a sunny outlook for the rest of the weekend as temperatures climb up slightly to a top of 19 degrees on Sunday and a low of six degrees in Warwick.

Nights will remain dry and cold, so make sure you have some warm socks sand hot chocolate in good supply.

While it won't be the white weekend we're wishing for, it sure will feel like winter.
