Stanthorpe plummets six degrees below July average

WINTER Woolies are a must this weekend as the mercury is predicted to drop into negatives once again.

Stanthorpe can expect frost-filled mornings from tomorrow with a chilly start at -2°C.

Saturday and Sunday expect very cold widespread frosts at -5°C, six degrees below the July average minimum.

Meteorologist Julian De Morton from the Bureau of Meteorology said the cool conditions were due to a combination of a trough moving off the southeast coast combined with a high in the Great Australian Bite.

"As this trough moves off, there's cooler air coming in the from the south plus very light winds is going to start to drive down temperatures,” he said.

"We're really looking at cooler temperatures from tomorrow onwards.”

He said over the next few days to expect cold dry air but not much in the way of cloud or other weather conditions.

"The only weather we're forecasting from Saturday onwards is frost.”

Despite the cold mornings for the next three days Stanthorpe can still expect sunny conditions during the day with a high of 12°C for Friday and 15°C for Saturday and Sunday.
