Vicious cold bite could see snow on the Southern Downs
THE colder weather is making a spectacular return to the Southern Downs, with experts again predicting the possibility snow will fall on the region.
Higgins Storm Chasing have forecast possible snow in Stanthorpe as Wednesday temperatures make a significant drop.
"After a three-week break from the last snow system, it will be back with a vicious bite on Wednesday," the group announced on Facebook.
"Snow is likely on the Northern Tablelands while sleet and a few snow flakes are possible on the far Southern Downs and Granite Belt."
Wednesday could see sleet and a heavy frost for Warwick, with temperatures set to drop to two degrees.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday will get cooler still, with mornings as low as one degree.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Sean Fitzgerald said temperatures are set to drop from tomorrow.
"(The cold front) is set to cruise through tomorrow, and we'll be experiencing (cold temperatures) reasonably soon," he said.
This comes after a weekend of perfect, sunny festival weather that saw temperatures reach the high and mid 20s.
"It will be nice and warm today and tomorrow... but once the front is actually through, it will be cold," Mr Fitzgerald said.
"By the time we get to Wednesday and Thursday the minimum will get pretty cold in comparison to average."
Mr Fitzgerald warned of possible sleet, heavy morning frosts and possible showers from Wednesday till the end of the week.
