Weather forecasts have revealed that Australia is all set to welcome warmer days following Monday’s cold waves and rain in Sydney.
The capital, according to Yahoo News, felt the coldest morning of the season as temperature recorded dropped to 5 degree Celsius. The Bureau of Meteorology said that at around 8:40 am, it felt like the temperature of Sydney reached 3.2 degree Celsius. Snowfall has already stopped and it is predicted that it would not fall this weekend anymore. But the cold weather will continue for the rest of the weekend, reports on Sunday stated.
“Monday morning won’t be as cold as Sunday, but with some light rain coming through it will feel cooler,” BOM predictor Rob Taggart said. There are 60 percent chances that coastal areas will experience morning rain between one to five millimeters.
The cold waves will continue over the next week with expected temperature to go beyond 20 degree Celsius in Sydney. New South Wales has felt the strong cold front in June this week. Blue Mountains’ Katoomba reached 7 degree Celsius in the weekend while Ballarat’s Sovereign Hill saw frosty weather at 1 degree Celsius on Sunday morning. The heavy rainfall, on the other hand, converted the street in Melbourne into “swimming pools” and that too in the peak hours of the day.
Although Monday morning was cold in Sydney but Sunday has been recorded as the coldest morning of the year in the city. Taggart said that the cold wave might have stopped for the moment but it would continue offering the warmth to be felt in the days ahead. This is because a high-pressure system shifted behind the front after the cold waves.
On Tuesday, the forecaster’s said that the temperature would reach 18 degrees following a morning rainfall while on Wednesday people might experience a sunny day at mild 19 degrees, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The “deep freeze” weather began in Australia on Thursday when South Australia experienced colder waves and then shifted it to the east for Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT, NSW and Queensland’s southeast by Friday. This led all the states of the nation experience the cold weather and welcome winters.
