Here’s proof it’s bloody cold on the Darling Downs

IF YOU'RE feeling the cold this morning, thank your lucky stars you don't live at Felton, with unconfirmed reports it got to minus 11 degrees this morning.

The amazingly cold temperature was recorded at Bob Free's farm on the Toowoomba-Karara Rd.

Across the Darling Downs, temperatures plummeted this morning, getting to:

  • -4.6 degrees in Oakey at 7am
  • -5.9 degrees in Warwick at 6.30am,
  • -3.3 degrees in Miles at 7am
  • -5.3 degrees in Applethorpe at 7am

The Bureau of Meteorology's Janine Yuasa said dry winds created by a high across the state's west were responsible for the frosty temperatures.

"There is a bit of a trough moving through from the south west and that is what will bring the cooler temperatures," Ms Yuasa said.

"Minimum temperatures are around the average for this time of the year and will most likely continue for the time being."
