Slightly unbelievable from the depths of winter in New Zealand – but it not always warm in Queensland.
Brisbane recorded its coldest morning in 103 years on July 13, 2014, with low temperatures also being felt across the rest of the Queensland state.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology says the state’s capital dropped to 2.6 degrees Celsius just before 7am. The bureau says it’s been exceptionally cold.
Clermont in central Queensland had record-low temperatures on Friday, July 11, but broke records again on Saturday morning July 12, with the temperature dropping down to minus 4.5 degrees Celsius.
And the five coldest places were Oakley with minus six degrees Celsius, Warwick with 5.9 degrees Celsius, and Kingaroy minus 5.7 degrees Celsius.
In New South Wales, Glen Innes recorded a temperature of minus 11.3 degrees Celsius, while Thredbo recorded a low of minus 4.1 degrees Celsius.
