There Is a High Chance of Snow Hitting the Snowy Mountains Early in the Week
East Coast Aussies Warned to Rug up as a Cold Front Sets. This week will bring strong cold front sets that will bring freezing temperatures, heavy rain, storms, and snow to Australia.
Plunging temperatures will reach South Australia, Victoria, and Tasmania first on Monday before spreading up into central and eastern NSW on Tuesday.
Some regions of the country are anticipated to see subzero temperatures, and NSW is expected to have showers and even thunderstorms.
Cold winds will accompany the below-freezing temperatures, giving the impression that the temperature is up to 4C lower.
Thunderstorms Are Forecast to Sweep across Greater Sydney and the Hunter
The Bureau of Meteorology forecasts a very high possibility of snow across the region and into the Southern Tablelands on Tuesday morning for visitors to the Snowy Mountains this week.
The Northern Tablelands and Central Tablelands will both get overnight snowfall on Tuesday.
According to Weatherzone meteorologist James Rout, “this may offer a lovely snowy landscape for some, but also pose some risk on the highways.”
Tuesday afternoon will bring lightning strikes, thunderclaps, and possibly severe wind gusts to Greater Sydney, the Hunter, and farther north along the ranges.
Parts of NSW and Victoria Will Be Hit with Heavy Showers and Plunging Temperatures as a Cold Front Sets In
As a low-pressure system forms off the east coast, which is expected to batter the Illawarra on Tuesday, the Hunter will also experience heavy rainfall, and cold front sets in.
The bottom half of the country will see frigid temperatures the whole week; Sydney residents can expect lows of 7C and highs of 20C.
Melbourne will continue to experience jumper weather, with daily lows of 5 and highs of 15 degrees Celsius. On Monday morning, the Bureau of Meteorology renewed its severe weather alert for Victoria, cold front sets.
Average Rainfalls Are Expected Again This Summer
Gippsland is anticipated to experience damaging gusts, while Melbourne’s Port Phillip has been issued a gale warning. On Sunday night, temperatures at Falls Creek dropped to -3.3C, while those skiing on Mount Hotham experienced a plunge to -3.9C. The sale had a low of 1.6C, while Latrobe Valley only reached -0.1C.
Adelaide will see slightly warmer temperatures, ranging from 7 to 16 degrees Celsius, while Canberra will experience the cold front sets conditions, with lows of -4 degrees Celsius. The work week in Queensland is expected to be generally bright, but rain is expected to move into Brisbane during the weekend.
The city’s coldest day, Wednesday will have a low of 9 degrees, while its warmest day, Tuesday, will reach a high of 25 degrees. Perth will see sunny and cloudy weather and cold front sets throughout the week, with a high of 22C predicted for the area. Throughout the week, Darwin residents will enjoy a tonne of sunlight and temperatures that reach 35C.
Forecasters are predicting another La Nina this summer, and forecasters are predicting wet weather across much of the nation. On Tuesday, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) upgraded the La Nina prognosis from “watch” to “alert,” indicating that rainy weather is likely to extend well into the summer.
According to the bureau, “La Nia refers to fluctuations in the tropical Pacific Ocean’s sea surface temperatures, with waters in the eastern Pacific being cold front sets than normal and waters in the western tropical Pacific being warmer than normal.”
“Elevated flood danger remains for eastern Australia due to moist soils, swollen rivers, and full dams, as well as the prospect for above average rainfall.”
