Chill will give Rockhampton a break for a couple of days
WINTER has come and the worst of it has gone for the rest of the week.
That's what Rockhampton weather observers said after the region's 3.9 degrees low yesterday morning. It was the chilliest day on record this year.
Weather observer Benj Blunt said some very cold and dry south-west winds from Tasmania swept across the country and brought with them the winter snap.
In fact, the cold snap brought one Clermont farmer the perfect opportunity to take stunning photographs of icicles that had formed on fences and other farming equipment.
Temperatures over the next six days are not expected to drop below 3.9 degrees. Temperatures will remain between low and mild until next week.
