Temperatures on the coast have dipped with the start of the month bringing a burst of early winter weather.
Many were surprised with the colder conditions following an extremely warm season.
The Sunshine Coast Daily reported autumn as having a “blazing start” with harsh heatwaves striking the coast.
A sudden change in weather has left many shivering in surprise.
The Bureau of Meteorology recorded temperatures dipping below 6 degrees and peaking at under 22 degrees during the weekend.
The lowest recorded temperature to have affected the Sunshine Coast in June is 1.5 degrees, while the average minimum temperature is 11.4 degrees.
A Bureau of Meteorology spokesperson said the coast has had plenty of cool mornings which were dependant on the humidity and wind conditions.
“South easterly winds have kept the minimum temperature a little cooler than usual,” he said.
“It has been bringing in those winter conditions.”
More cold days are ahead with dry and windy weather keeping the humidity away.
“Another cool dry burst is expected tomorrow and over the next week,” the spokesperson said.
“The weather warms up due to showers and cloudy days.”
The weather is alluding to a cold winter ahead for the coast.
