A cold snap is coming this weekend

BREAK out the winter warmers, the electric blankets and maybe chop a little fire wood because we're in for a cold weekend.

Weatherzone meteorologist Rob Sharpe said we could see temperature dip below zero.

"A cold front is sweeping across south east Australia and bringing up some cooler air into southern Queensland,” Mr Sharpe said.

The forecast for the South Burnett is for lows of 1 and 2 degrees over the weekend.

"There are some some places that could easily drop below freezing,” Mr Sharpe said.

"With those chilly nights and all that cold air hanging around we could be seeing a fair bit frost on the ground.”

In other weather news, some of our readers may have noticed a strange pitter-patter dancing across their roofs last night.

That was the sound of rain, and for many it was the first fall in about a month.

Mr Sharpe said there was a low pressure trough moving across from central Australia.

"As it approached the coast it picked up extra moisture allowing it to produce that rain,” he said.

About 2mm fell in Kingaroy, 3.2mm fell in Nanango, 5mm fell at Ficks Crossing, 4.8mm fell at Proston, 4mm fell at Brooklands and 4mm at Blackbutt.
