Logan is also in for chilly conditions, with the mercury tipped to plummet as low as 2 degrees tomorrow and 6 degrees on Friday.

"Temperatures are going to warm back to average or near average conditions during the day from tomorrow," she said.

"While we are going to have quite a cool morning, temperatures will recover quickly and we will be in for a much warmer night come Friday."

Windy conditions experienced in the south-east today would ease back this afternoon but would return on Friday and Saturday.

"A trough - which will move across Queensland from Thursday and into Friday - is going to increase the chances of a shower, mostly about the southern interior," Ms Hoff said.

"This will be fairly sparse and fairly quick. We are only expecting to see about 10mm or less."
