Polar blast to bring large bursts of snow

Polar blast to bring large bursts of snow

As Sydneysiders prepare to ditch their umbrellas, Millions of Aussies around the country will need to pull on their winter coats as temperatures are expected to plummet as a cold snap hits the state.

Frigid air dragged up from Antarctica is set to bring a cold front across Australia this weekend, with south-easterly winds expected to push the cold air mass into much of the country from the weekend.

The low-pressure system in the Tasman Sea will generate winds which will lead to a wind chill, with temperatures likely to feel much colder than the actual temperature, according to a Weatherzone report.

“The frigid air will be dragged from Antarctica by a cold front sweeping across the continent this weekend,” Weatherzone said.

“A high-pressure system will quickly follow in the front’s path and remain over southern Australia until at least mid-next week, prolonging this cold outbreak.”

Much of the country’s south-east is expected to be affected, with temperatures in Brisbane reaching as low as 8C into next week, with maximum temperatures hitting the low 20s.

“At this stage, temperatures over the next few days will probably be sitting around minimum temperatures … around about average, within one or two degrees,” Bureau of Meteorology’s Daniel Hayes said.

“Once that cool change comes through, on Sunday, we’ll see those temperatures drop probably at least one or two degrees below average.”

The cold snap comes after a thick blanket of fog developed over southeast Queensland Tuesday evening, with visibility at Brisbane Airport reduced to less than 200m on Wednesday morning.
