BBRRRRRR!!! Baby it's c-c-cold outside!

Weather records continue to tumble in Queensland with parts of the state shivering in the coldest morning of the year.

Temperatures well below freezing are being reported at many centres in the south-east including the Darling Downs, the granite belt, Amberley and Brisbane.

At 6am, the temperature at Applethorpe on the granite belt was -7.3, Warwick recorded -5 and Dalby and Oakey -4.

This morning, Townsville recorded its longest cold snap in 66 years, with continuous minimums below 12 degrees.

The weather bureau's Greg Connors is predicting there is more to come.

"Not since 1941 have we had such a long cold spell and we think as Friday and Saturday approaches it's going to get even colder," he said.

"There's another burst of cold air coming up so we're getting back down to single figures again."
