Frost coats Gunnedah region | Photos

The Gunnedah shire has been blanketed in frost and dew for many a morning this month. 

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster, Elli Blandford, said the wintry weather was here to stay with the maximum temperature for Friday predicted to be 19 degrees.

“Looking at Friday and Saturday, we are looking at a bit of precipitation coming through the region, and then Sunday will be relatively clear again,” she said.

“With the precipitation coming through, we’re not really expecting too much,” Ms Blandford said.

“On Friday, for example, looking around Tamworth and Gunnedah, we’d only be expecting up to a millimetre or two, and then on Saturday, probably less than a millimetre.”

The forecaster said frost had been “widespread” across the region, with temperatures below zero degrees for the past week in Gunnedah.

“With these sorts of clear nights, the temperature is able to drop fairly quickly to zero, especially in higher elevated areas,” she said.

Ms Blandford said Gunnedah was less likely to experience a frost on Friday and Saturday, with minimum temperatures predicted to be “a little higher” at four and seven degrees respectively.
