Cold night in NE NSW, SE Qld
Much of NE NSW and SE Qld reported sub-zero minimum temperatures this morning (above), with departures from normal commonly 6 to 10 below the June average (below).
Clear skies and low humidity caused overnight temperatures to plummet to their lowest point so far this winter in SE Qld and NE NSW this morning. Many inland Brisbane suburbs reported the unusual experience of frost. Amberley RAAF Air Base, 6km west of Ipswich, recorded a low of -3, 10 below average, while on the Granite Belt, the temperature dropped to -6 at Applethorpe, 9 below the June norm. The NSW Northern Tablelands reported heavy frosts and the coldest temperatures on the continent, even exceeding those on the Snowy Mountains, when the thermometer dropped to -8.4 at Glen Innes Airport, and -9.0 at the University of New England Armidale site.
