A BITTERLY cold southerly airstream will make its way across eastern Australia from Wednesday, causing temperatures to plummet across six states, according to weather experts.
The Weather Channel Meteorologist Felim Hanniffy says Adelaide will be the first state to bear the brunt of the cool change with a maximum of 15 degrees on Wednesday, and on Thursday the airstream will move east towards Canberra with a top of 12 degrees and a wind chill factor of 3 – 4 degrees.
“Even the red centre after enduring temperatures in the high 30’s at the start of the week will feel significantly cooler. Alice Springs will have a maximum of 23 degrees will feel a lot more like 14 degrees,” she says.
Showers and thunderstorms are likely to accompany the change, says Hanniffy.
