Antarctic air mass to send SEQ temperatures plummeting
A COLD air mass that formed over Antarctica is set to strike south-east Queensland by the weekend, the weather bureau says.
Forecaster Michael Knepp said maximum temperatures across the region were expected to plummet by Sunday as the cold air mass clashed with a warm air trough moving in from western Queensland.
By Monday, minimum temperatures in the south east are forecast to drop to 6C and will remain low until later in the week.
Minimum temperatures on the Granite Belt are forecast to drop below zero, with Stanthorpe expecting -2C on Monday and Wednesday.
In other parts of Queensland, including coastal areas, single-digit overnight temperatures were forecast from Monday until Wednesday.
