Coldest morning in years for Brisbane and Bundaberg

Coldest morning in years for Brisbane and Bundaberg
It was one of the coldest mornings of the year for Queensland with a few places having their coldest morning in over a decade. All of Queensland recorded temperatures below the August average except for parts of the Peninsula. People felt the chill as Brisbane had its coldest morning in four years, dropping to a chilly 4.6 degrees, six below the August average. Bundaberg Airport was a standout, falling to 3.4 degrees this morning. This was its coldest morning in 17 years and was eight degrees below average. It was also their coldest August morning in almost 50 years. Mount Isa was very cold, dropping below freezing for only the second time this year and registering its coldest morning in 10 years. It was a staggering 11 degrees below average, reaching minus one. Blackall in the Central West also recorded its coldest morning in 9 years, dropping to minus two. Tomorrow is likely to be another very cold morning due to a lingering cold airmass, light winds and clear skies across most of the state. Brisbane and Bundaberg should both dip to six degrees. Mornings will be a touch warmer across the state from Saturday as the airmass begins to warm, but early mornings will still be quite cold.
