Coldest morning so far for 2010

Temperatures dropped to 10 degrees Celsius on the Gold Coast overnight at Coolangatta, and 12.5 degrees at the Gold Coast Seaway, breaking the lowest 'official' temperature record for this year (so far!).

The coldest temperature ever recorded for May was 1.5 degrees at Coolangatta in 2000, and 6.5 degrees at the Gold Coast Seaway in 2004 (Source: Weatherzone). Residents further west towards the Hinterland are likely to have already experienced lower temperatures.

Daytime temperatures are set to be 24 degrees over the next three days, with a fine forecast for today (Friday) and mostly sunny over the weekend. Looking further into next week and rain is forecast to develop on Monday.
