WINTER CHILL: Cold snap could bring snow tomorrow

THE first chance of snow for the winter is coming, and it will be closer than you think.

Higgins Storm Chasing said snow was possible on the New South Wales northern tablelands tomorrow, just two hours from Queensland.

"While the Australian Alps have received a heavy snow dumping overnight Monday and during Tuesday, the coldest air mass won't arrive up north until early Wednesday," it reported.

"It's a 50/50 chance at this stage whether or not snow will fall on the northern tablelands, however global model date is certainly suggesting there is a good possibility."

While Higgins said snow was unlikely further north toward Stanthorpe due to the slightly warmer air, lack of moisture or precipitation, it will be a cold day across the Darling Downs and Granite Belt.

"Toowoomba and Warwick are going for a top of just 14 degrees while Stanthorpe will struggle to get over 10 degrees."

"The wind chill factor will take up to 10 degrees off these forecast temperatures, so standing outside will have a "feels like" of less than five degrees all day."

Tomorrow's forecast

Toowoomba - max 14 degrees, min 9 degrees

Oakey - max 16 degrees, min 5 degrees

Warwick - max 14 degrees, min 4 degrees

Stanthorpe - max 11 degrees, min 2 degrees
