Get the heaters out, the electric blankets buzzing and close those windows!
There a polar cold front drifting around the coast of Antarctica and it’s heading for Australia.
We can expect it to hit the East Coast this week and it’s going to slowly freeze out the entire country.
The South East Coast will hit take the brunt of it first.
Regional NSW, Victoria, and Tasmania is going to see rainfall, and then by Wednesday, Queensland is going to get a rude awakening.
“It will be a good start to the snow season,” Weatherzone meteorologist Esteban Abellan said in the Sydney Morning Herald.
“We could also see snow in the Central Tablelands of NSW, a dusting of snow in the Blue Mountains, and the Northern Tablelands in NSW and southern Queensland.
“Snow in Queensland doesn’t happen very often—about once a year.”
An air mass currently near the Antarctic coastline is expected to be sitting over south east Australia by mid next week. Here’s how ECMWF’s HRES currently sees that evolving. pic.twitter.com/RE0EvhWoGz
