IF YOU felt cold this Friday morning it's because it was, with the apparent temperature plunging to 8.4 degrees at 6am due to a strong west, south westerly breeze.
The official overnight minimum was slightly higher at 10.5 degrees warming to 20 degrees by 9.06am but with the winds keeping the way it felt to a much lower 13.5 degrees.
As the day continues to warm it will reach a maximum 25 degrees with the wind strength dropping out helping to close the gap between the temperature we feel and the official temperature readings.
Bureau of Meteorology data shows the Sunshine Coast is heading for a perfect Saturday with temperatures ranging from 12 to 26 degrees through the day with clear skies and light winds throughout.
Sunday will also see light winds on what will be a partly cloudy day with only a low chance of rain.
Monday will be sunny with no chance of showers with temperatures ranging from an early morning low of 15 degrees ahead of a 27 degree maximum.
The first day of the new working week will also see a return of east south easterly winds ranging in strength from 15 to 20 kph however these are expected to drop out before they can produce any marked increase in swell size.
Surfers this weekend should expect west south westerlies early on Saturday before they drop out to leave sunny, perfect beach conditions but very little if anything in the way of waves to ride.
Sunday will also be close to perfect ruined only by the total absence of any pulse of energy on the wave front.
