Get your mittens out people, there’s snow on the horizon.

An arctic front is set to hit Australia this weekend with snow, hail, and chilly winds making their way up as far north as Queensland. Finally, a snow day may be a legitimate reason to chuck a sickie, Gold Coasters!

So where’s it going to snow? According to reports, a cold front will sweep up from South Australia through Victoria and New South Wales before making its way to southern Queensland.

There’s going to be hail, thunderstorms, rain, snow, and all kinds of freaky weather. Winter is (finally) coming! The mercury is set to drop below -3 in some parts of Queensland, including the Granite Belt area. Time to light the fire and pull out the red wine. On the Gold Coast we can expect temperatures to sit at around 7 degrees – yiiikess!

Apart from fretting about whether your car will get hailed on, there’s plenty of stuff to do on Gold Coast when the mercury sits below our usual 25. Here’s our guide to coping in the cold:
