15 July 2019 – The mercury dropped to almost minus 5 C in Queensland (the so-called Sunshine State) on Monday,
according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
Brisbane had a relatively warm minimum of 9.8 degrees, which did not break any records, but it felt colder due to the wind-chill. However, plenty of other areas did surpass previous cold weather milestones.
In total, 15 locations in southern and central Queensland recorded their coldest morning of the year on Monday and the chilly spell was expected to hang around for much of the week.
