THIS morning Toowoomba was the coldest place in Queensland, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. 

About 8.30am the temperature was 3.8 degrees but the wind made it feel like -4.2.

Forecaster Dan Narramore said that meant the city, as well as Stanthorpe and Applethorpe, had the coldest "feels like'' temperature in the state. 

However, he said it was worse last night when Toowoomba dropped to 3 degrees but 60km/h winds made it feel like -5. 

Toowoomba right now is experiencing southwesterly winds of 45 km/h which is why it feels so cold. 

But that is all set to clear away later today. Clouds in Toowoomba will linger around for a little longer but come afternoon the sun is set to return. Winds will decrease to 15 to 20 km/h in the evening.

Mr Narramore said: "It's going to be cold mornings but glorious sunny days right from tomorrow until the weekend."

"There are widespread negatives (temperatures) around the Darling Downs for the rest of the week and Toowoomba's light breeze in the mornings could still feel like negatives (temperatures) but the worst of the wind will be today," he said.

"It should ease tonight and go back to light wind tomorrow."

Tomorrow's temperature will drop to 1 degrees with light winds from 11-12km/h.

It will warm up during the day and hit a maximum of 16 degrees by afternoon.
