Temps plunge in coldest morning of year

Thousands of Aussies have shivered through the coldest mornings recorded so far this year as a chilly polar air mass continues to hover above the east coast.

The weather system which sent temperatures plunging across the east has now moved to the NSW Tablelands and the Mackay and North Queensland areas.

Sky News meteorologist Rob Sharpe said many suburbs of Sydney woke Monday morning to temperatures between 7C and 9C in the city.

Overnight, Canberra reached -3C and Hobart recorded only 4C.

Liawenee in Tasmania was the coldest minimum overnight, at -5C in heart of the isle.

Clear and windless skies at Guyra on the Northern Tablelands of NSW created a hoar frost Sunday morning, with the chilly conditions forecast to hang around into Monday.

Orange in NSW was barely one degree warmer overnight than Dubbo, which reached 0°C.

Mr Sharpe said many parts of Queensland had woken up to their coldest morning of 2024, with Mackay recording 9C and just 13C being recorded in Townsville, in the state’s north.

He said parts of the NSW Central Coast should experience showers throughout Monday.

The cold front has cleared to the east with a southerly airstream expected across Victoria during Monday and Tuesday as a high south of the Bight moves slowly east, the Bureau of Meteorology forecasts.
