Severe frosts, and snow on the mountains, to combine with miserly maximum temps

WEATHERZONE have news of a powerful cold front due to hit south-eastern Australia over the weekend.

The most powerful front in a few years will arrive this weekend, bringing strong cold winds, showers, hail and snow then lead to frost across about two thirds of Australia.

From this weekend to next Wednesday much of South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, the ACT, Queensland and the Northern Territory will experience its coldest spell in at least two years, more than five years in some places. Temperatures will drop three-to-seven degrees below average for four or five days running.

To be honest the Bureau forecasts don’t look much worse than the last few weeks with the overnight minimums comparatively balmy.

A forecast maximum of just 7 degrees on Sunday however doesn’t sound like a great deal of fun.
