Feeling a little chilly, Brisbanites? There's a reason for that. But it's not just the usual wintry temperatures that's making the city shiver — rather, it's Brissie's coldest morning of 2020 so far.

While the mercury will hit the 21-degree maximum mark today — and continue to hover between 9–23 degrees for the rest of the week — the morning started with a frosty 3.8 degrees at the airport and 7.6 in the CBD. Weatherzone reports that "on top of that, southwesterly winds made it feel three degrees colder".

To put the temperatures in context, while July is only five days in, 21.7 degrees is the month's average maximum temperature to date, while 10.6 degrees is the minimum. In fact, 21.8 is the usual July average maximum historically, while 10.2 degrees is the usual July minimum average, according to data spanning from 2000 to 2016. In the CBD, it's the first time the temp has dropped into single digits this month, and lower than June's lowest minimum of 9.1 degrees.

If you're not too keen on the extra dose of chilliness each morning, a minimum of nine degrees is forecast for Monday, before rising to ten degrees on Tuesday, 11 on Wednesday and Thursday, and 13 on Friday and Saturday. It is the middle month of winter, though, so that's hardly surprising. And yes, we can stop saying that 'winter is coming' — because winter is definitely here.
