Shivvv-ering mornings to continue with frost forecasted

MORE frost is on the way as temperatures continue to plummet across the Wide Bay Burnett.

On Wednesday morning Gayndah reached below 1 degrees and towards the south, Kingaroy was 0.5 degrees.

The cold mornings are expected to stay up until Wednesday next week.

Bureau of metereology forecaster Michael Paech said the cold weather was attributed to the dry air passing through the region.

"We are expecting the cold mornings to continue well below average,” Mr Paech said.

"Frost is expected for the South and North Burnett up until the weekend.

"It's a pretty typical winter, southerly winds and the dry air from the south are the reasons why it's quite cold.”

Mr Paech said it looks as though this years winter could very well break some records.

"We're seeing this cold spell and it's lasted for over a week,” he said.

"Kingaroy was a lot cooler a few days ago but it remains three to four degrees below average, and in Gayndah it's eight below average.”

The region will struggle even more without any rain in sight.

"Unfortunately there won't be any rain this week,” Mr Paech said.

"We just have to wait and see what next week brings.”

Weather forecasts:

Gayndah 1°C degree with a top of 23°C

Gympie 0.9°C with a top of 21°C

Bundaberg 7°C with a top of 23°C

Hervey Bay 7°C with a top of 20°C
