Brisbane Temps Will Drop Into The Single Digits This Weekend

Slap the winter doona on your bed tonight if you haven't done it already, because the South East is set to shiver through its coldest May morning since 2015 this weekend.

It's thanks to a strong burst of southerly air moving up over much of the state, which has been lingering over Australia's east coast this week.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a minimum temp of 9°C for Brisbane on Saturday, while Ipswich is expecting a chilling 5°C.

Meteorologist Lachlan Stoney said Brisbane's maximum is forecast to reach 22°C, but windy conditions could make it feel much cooler.

"I think what makes this change significant, it's really the first good cool change that we've had come through this year, it tends to catch people by surprise," he said.

Stanthorpe is tipped to be the coldest place in Queensland tomorrow, with a minimum temp of just 1°C.
