The cold snap gripping Australia’s south-east has continued with residents across multiple states shivering through a frosty morning.

The mercury dipped to a low of -1C in Canberra leading to morning frost, while residents in Melbourne, Hobart and Adelaide copped a low of 8C. Sydney recorded a low of 9C.

The chilly temperatures will continue into the weekend.

NSW forecast from last night showed inland areas coped lows between 0C - 3C.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s (BoM) five-day forecast shows Canberra will cop a low of 1C on Friday, and 2C on Saturday and Sunday.

In Hobart tomorrow it will dip to 7C. Saturday and Sunday will be even colder, with a low 5C is forecast.

Melbourne will also reach lows of 5C and 6C on Saturday and Sunday.

The wintery-chill is due to a cold front that swept up from Tasmania and over the Great Australian Bight to the mainland, where it delivered heavy snow falls to alpine regions.

Cloud from the low was picked up by a cold front and carried all the way across the Great Australian Bight to eastern Australia. It can be seen sitting over the alpine areas, where it delivered heavy snow.

“The series of cold fronts crossing Tasmania have briefly surged far enough north to deliver a surprisingly heavy snowfall to mainland alpine regions,” Weatherzone explained.

“Meanwhile in Tasmania, locals say the snow depth is now around 20 cm at the tiny volunteer-run skifield of Mt Mawson.”

Mount Mawson, an hour-and-a-half from Hobart, recorded 20cm of snow yesterday.
