Southeast Queenslanders will shiver through some of the coldest temperatures of this year as a cold snap makes its way across the state.
The mercury is tipped to drop to just three degrees in Stanthorpe on Friday morning, more than six degrees below average.
Toowoomba has a predicted minimum of six degrees, while Kingaroy could drop to four degrees.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Andrew Bufalino said Brisbane residents could expect a minimum temperature of 10 degrees, below the expected 17 for this time of year.
"We are drifting closer towards May, but either way we are still going to be below average," he told AAP.
Mr Bufalino said moisture would start to return to the air later on Friday, but temperatures would remain colder than usual over the weekend.
