Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne weather: Millions shiver through coldest morning of the year

Millions of Australians shivered on the coldest morning of the year as a prolonged cold snap settled across eastern parts of the country.

Residents of Sydney and Melbourne faced 7°C and 1.6°C respectively, while the ‘feeling temperature’ was even lower due to icy wind gusts on Wednesday.

Capitals in Tasmania, Victoria and the ACT are also experiencing sub-zero temperatures, with locals in Canberra waking up to -4°C and a feeling of -8°C.

On Tuesday, inland Queensland broke the 32-year record for the coldest June morning as temperatures fell to -5.6°C in Tambo and -3.4°C in Thangool.

Minimum temperatures in the Sunshine State were 8°C to 12°C below average on Tuesday, while the mercury fell 4°C to 10°C below average across much of eastern Australia on Wednesday.

The prolonged cold snap is due to an unusually slow-moving low-pressure system, bringing frosty mornings and frigid nights to eastern and southeastern parts of Australia.

The prolonged cold snap is due to an unusually slow-moving low-pressure system, bringing frosty mornings and frigid nights to eastern and southeastern parts of Australia.

Weatherzone meteorologist Ben Domensino said the prolonged cold snap would continue this week and was due to an unusually slow-moving low-pressure system.

Mr Domensino explained that the “persistent cold air mass combined with clear skies and light winds” was to blame for the freezing mornings and freezing nights across much of south-east and eastern Australia.

Widespread frost is also expected across the eastern third of the country this weekend, expected to extend to South Australia and southern parts of the Northern Territory.

Mr Domensino added that overnight temperatures would begin to moderate by mid-week as a small cold front and associated low-pressure system introduce wind and moisture into the mix.

Australia's entire east coast shook on the coldest morning of the year, with residents of Sydney and Melbourne experiencing temperatures of 7°C and 1.6°C respectively.
