Southern Gold Coasters Shiver Through Coldest June Morning On Record

Near freezing temps for Coolangatta

Southern Gold Coasters Shiver Through Coldest June Morning On Record

There were icy conditions on the southern end of the Gold Coast this morning, when the mercury dropped to just above freezing!

It got down to 0.6°C at Coolangatta shortly before 5am, making it the coldest June morning on record.

The temperature dropped to 1.7°C at Nerang, while it was slightly warmer on the Seaway staying around 9°C.

Meteorologist Jim Richardson from the Bureau of Meteorology said it felt even cooler than that though, thanks to the wind chill.

"Yesterday we saw some gusty winds around and that can always make it feel a little bit cooler than it actually is, and that is in store again for today," he said.

He said the big chill comes off the back of the freezing temps and rain the southern states have copped over the weekend.

"We're just sort of getting the back end of it so we're getting those south-westerly winds behind the lows but it's just too dry in Queensland to get any rain so we're just seeing the cooler temperatures and the wind as well".

The mercury is set to get up to 19°C today, which is cooler than average for this time of year.
