The cold snap is continuing to bite for the Logan and Scenic Rim community with a minimum of one degree recorded at Greenbank from 6.30am this morning and -0.9 degrees at Beaudesert at 7am.

Beaudesert's average minimum temperature for July is 6.1 degrees.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Crock said south-east Queensland can expect temperatures to gradually warm up in coming days with onshore winds to bring more moisture over the weekend.

"We have had cool air pushed up from the southern states over the past few days from a high pressure system in South Australia," he said.

"This is causing cold mornings."

The weather bureau is forecasting cool conditions for Beaudesert over the next few days with minimum temperatures of four degrees on Thursday and three degrees on Friday.

Weekend minimum temperatures are expected to rise to six degrees on Sunday with a maximum temperature of 25 degrees.

Mr Crock said it was too early to determine whether colder conditions would emerge this year.

"There is every chance this will be the coldest weather we have for winter," he said.

"There is a fair bit of July and August to come so we could have another cold snap where temperatures get this low."
