The Australian city of Toowoomba, located in the Darling Downs region of southern Queensland, has just shivered through its coldest May morning in 23 years of records.
The city’s official weather station at Wellcamp Airport recorded a low of -2.6C (27.3F) at 5:45AM on Wednesday, May 29. That reading comfortably beat the previous all-time cold record for the month of May of 0.8C (33.4F) set in 2000.
BOM forecaster Adam Blazak expects the next few days to get even colder.
“We had a trough move through on Monday night and into Tuesday which brought cool, dry air which extends into the atmosphere making our nights very cool,” he said.
“We are also expecting another cool burst to move through tomorrow night so Friday may be colder again, and with winter coming the cold weather isn’t over yet.”
The cold times have arrived in Toowoomba.
