REDLANDERS will need to rug up this week, with cold weather sweeping in and expected to continue for the next few days.

BOM meteorologist Rosa Hoff said cooler temperatures had kicked in on Tuesday for the east coast.

"Winds have shifted a bit southerly, bringing some weather up from down south," she said.

"This will bring a chance of frost and some windy conditions particularly around the southern interior."

In the Redlands, temperatures in the middle of the day on Tuesday hovered at about 17 degrees, but felt like a chilly 11 degrees, according to BOM data.

It has also been a breezy day, with gusts of up to 50 km/h recorded at Alexandra Hills.

Ms Hoff said many areas would see single digit temperatures overnight.

At 7am on Tuesday, temperatures were about 9 degrees, feeling like 4.7.

"While we'll be having these cold temperatures we won't be having any rainfall," Ms Hoff said.

"The significance of these cold temperatures is generally what we'd expect in a usual July fluctuation.

"These cooler temperatures will be lasting for most of the week in Queensland."
