Most areas across southeast Queensland have just felt their coldest April day in at least a decade as a thick blanket of cloud and persistent rainfall capped maximums.
Brisbane only climbed three degrees above their minimum temperature to a top of 21 degrees yesterday. This was their coldest day since October in at least 11 years for April.
Throughout the southeast, maximums temperatures remained around five to 10 degrees below their April averages. Coolangatta only hit 19 degrees, which is their coldest April day in 28 years of records.
In terms of rainfall, the city received 15mm between 9am and 5pm today bringing the year to date total to 569mm, which is just over half the annual average of 1062mm. Over the same period, Woody Point picked up one of the largest totals of the southeast with 57mm.
The heavy rain will continue to fall over the region today, but will begin to ease during the afternoon. For the remainder of the week, just isolated showers will stick around and there are even likely to be sunny breaks for the long weekend.
