COFFS Harbour residents were given a rude shock when they stepped outside this morning to go to work or school.

At 8.30am the official temperature was a reasonable 12.2 degrees but those who braved the chilly start to the day will attest that it was colder than that and the Bureau of Meteorology concurs.

The Bureau's website said the apparent temperature at that time of the morning was a teeth chattering 4.4 degrees.

The combination of stronger winds coming off snow topped peaks at Armidale and Guyra following a cold front coming through the state produced this morning's cold conditions.

It's not all bad news though as the warmer weather is due to return quickly.

The forecast maximum temperature for a mostly sunny Saturday is 22 degrees with the warmer conditions set to build up to a summer like 29 degrees on Wednesday.
