High Alert; Freezing Cold Blast Strikes In Australia.
The situation is getting worst.
The temperature is forecast to jump as low as -4C with SNOW in four states. The situation is here to stay all week. This cold blast weather will bring snow to at least four eastern states in Australia with antarctic winds by Wednesday.
A wet and windy day was forecast for much of the southeast of the nation with snow and hail in alpine areas caused by a cold front sweeping across the country. A low-pressure trough is also affecting Tasmania and southern parts of Victoria. Snow flow will remain all night.
There was 25cm snowfall in the last Sunday and advised people to fit tyre chains to all vehicles. A strong low-pressure system south of Tasmania is bringing air from the Antarctic region up to New South Wales.
On Monday, Sydney’s forecast was for a windy and partly cloudy day with temperatures reaching 19C and a slight chance of showers in the afternoon.
Sydney temperatures will drop to 9C
Sydney temperatures will drop to 9C overnight with daytime temperatures hovering around 19C until Sunday with possible showers for the weekend. Canberra is set to shiver with daytime maximums of 10C, showers and winds from now until Wednesday.
While daytime temperatures will rise to 16C by the weekend, the nights will freeze with a minimum of -4C predicted for Friday. Storm conditions are forecast for the Alps, with snow set to fall as low as 700 metres in the ACT by Wednesday. Melbourne suffered a rainy 13C day on Monday but temperatures are forecast to fall further to 12C on Wednesday.
Snow is forecast for Victoria through to Wednesday with the hills around Ballarat expected to get a dusting down to about 600m. Snow fell overnight in Tasmania in 6C temperatures on Monday. It is set to get both colder and windier as the cold front moves across the state with the coldest air to hit by Wednesday. The Tasmanian snowline is predicted to fall to about 500m by Wednesday with a 30cm worth of falls from this cold blast alone.
All of the Australians must prepare for a heavy snowfall which lasts for weeks.
