We told ya on Wednesday that a high pressure system rolling in from South Australia was gonna make it a wee bit nippy in Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and the ACT

Turns out that cold front will not be skipping the sunny state of Queensland. No, no, no sirree. 

Instead, southeast Queensland is plunging into the ice bath, due for its coldest days of the year. Overnight temps in Brisvegas will go into the single digits, down to 9° on Saturday, and 8° on Sunday, a couple of degrees below the June average. Temps on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts will also fall as low as 9°. 

  

To the west in Ipswich, the mercury will drop six degrees below average, to as low as 3°, while in Roma the temp will bottom out at -2°. Below zero. In the immortal words of Linkin Park, I’ve become so numb. 

Still, during the middle of the day, the max on the Coasts, and in Bris, Ipswich and Roma is 20°, with a light breeze and a lot of sunlight. So it’s probably worth catching some rays before you rug up under that heavy blanket to cuddle a hot water bottle. Hot water bottles: like having someone asleep next to you, minus the snoring. 

And hey, at least you’re not in Tassie, where it is literally snowing rn.
