A cold front bringing an icy blast will send temperatures plummeting in parts of southeastern Australia this week, with millions also bracing for showers and thunderstorms.   

The Bureau of Meteorology has warned Sydneysiders and Melburnians to expect the mercury to drop as low as 9C from Tuesday, after enjoying a sunny Easter weekend.

The warning comes only weeks after the country’s east was devastated by widespread flash flooding and torrential rain that submerged suburbs and destroyed homes.  

‘After a warm Easter weekend, a cold front will bring showers, rain areas and cooler temperatures to much of southern Australia early next week,’ BOM said. 

Australia is set to experience wild wet weather once again including colder temperatures, rainfall and thunderstorms, according to the Bureau of Meteorology

Weatherzone meteorologist Gabrielle Woodhouse told Daily Mail Australia the cold front is only expected to hang around until Wednesday in Sydney.

However, Australians can rule out any beach days in the lead up to the weekend.  

‘The second half of the week there will be coastal showers developing, with hints of an inland trough next weekend,’ she said.

Parts of the southern and central inland regions of NSW will be drenched on Tuesday with up to 50mm of rainfall, according to the Bureau. 

‘Significant rainfall totals are likely in southern and central inland NSW on Tuesday, with the chance of thunderstorms,’ BOM said.

‘For some locations this may constitute the “autumn break”. A cold front will also bring cooler temperatures to much of the state.’
