Early winter sets in, icy weather for Australia’s southeast

Australia’s southeast is in for an early taste of winter this weekend as a series of cold fronts moves in from the coast.
After a week of sporadic wet weather, NSW, Victoria and south Australia will see an icy blast and more potential showers sweep through.
For the capital cities, temperatures will likely stay below 18C in Sydney and Melbourne will be even colder peaking at just 13C and 16C on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
While most of the weekend showers will be concentrated around Victoria, Adelaide will see light showers and temperatures around 17C.
The Bureau of Meteorology warns Victoria will feel the brunt of the icy weather, bringing an end to an unseasonably warm autumn for the state.
“A cold front clears eastern parts [Friday] morning, with more fronts to follow early on Saturday and then early on Monday,” BOM said in a statement.
The extreme cold will also bring snow to the Victorian Alps and NSW Snowy Mountains with falls as low as 900 metres by Sunday.
Perth, Brisbane and Darwin will see clear skies with the cold front staying concentrated along the southeast.
Meteorologists say this won’t be the strongest cold front over the next few months but will mean bringing out the heater and throwing an extra blanket on the bed.
The Bureau says much of mainland Australia will see above average rainfall this winter, however WA’s west coast and Queensland’s northeast will be drier than past winters.
