Winter is just around the corner

THE North Burnett is expected to draw in cold weather as winter officially approaches.

With the temperatures set to drop below six degrees, Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Adam Woods said people should start preparing themselves now.

"With it officially being winter, people should know by now that it will get cold so they should wear warmer clothes,” Mr Woods said.

"Thursday and Friday should see some showers developing in the region with a strong wind warning in place for all of south east Queensland.”

Due to a high pressure system forming across the region, conditions will not be good for the next few days and a warning to not go boating is in place.

"People shouldn't be boating in this type of weather as the winds will be strong,” Mr Woods said.

"The winds developed due to no real precipitation in the air and also a high pressure system forming in the south east Queensland is causing winds to be stronger than usual.

"The next few days should have strong winds, however it should clear up by the weekend.

"Places like Kingaroy, Nanango, Murgon and to the south west will see frost hit their region for the next few days, whereas places like the Burnett should be good for now.

The maximum temperatures for the region should hit around 23 degrees.
