Rug up, Forbes has more -4 degree mornings forecast

Winter is making its presence felt.

The mercury dropped to -4 degrees at Forbes airport on Thursday morning, and only reached 9 degrees all day.

Friday's conditions aren't expected to be much warmer, with a morning low of -2 and a forecast top temperature of 11 degrees.

And that's only the beginning. Both Saturday and Sunday mornings are forecast to hit -4 degrees with fog expected Saturday and frost Sunday.

The days should clear to be a little warmer, a top of 14 and sunny conditions are expected Saturday afternoon.

What we'd all like to see in the experts' expectations is a chance of rain.

So far this month Forbes has recorded just 5.6mm, that's well short of our average rainfall for the period of 55.6mm.
