Sydney Hit With Autumn Chill This Weekend
Get out your coats Sydney! Summer is officially GONE with an Autumn chill set to make us shiver this weekend.
A cold front and rain has been forecast for New South Wales in the coming few days with the real shock being that some parts of the state could actually see snow.
Jacob Cronje, senior meteorologist from Weatherzone has said that we will likely see thunderstorms and rain along with temperatures in the high 20s and low 30s across the state today.
However, a “significant” drop is heading our way on Saturday with temperatures going down 7C-10C.
“It will be even colder on Sunday, Sunday morning,” Mr Cronje said.
Some parts of NSW could see temperatures as low as zero, specificilly elevated ares of the Tablelands such as Cootamundra, Young and Yass.
“Maximum temperatures will be a degree or two cooler (than Saturday),” Mr Cronje continued.
Sydney itself will see temperatures drop to 24C-25C on Saturday and Sunday, however, early rain and strong winds could leave the capital city feeling slightly humid on Saturday.
“Sunday morning will feel like the start of autumn,” Mr Cronje said.
Elevated areas of Tasmania, Victoria and southern NSW could receive snowfall on Saturday, with some of Australia’s main ski resorts set to get an early taste of the upcoming winter season.
