Antarctic blast headed for south-east Australia tomorrow could bring snow

National weather forecast for Saturday April 10, 2021

An Antarctic blast is expected to sweep across much of south-east Australia tomorrow, bringing with it temperatures below zero degrees and even snow.

The vigorous front and trough will generate powerful winds and rain in South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and southern NSW with highland snow.

Bimal KC, forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology said that temperatures in affected regions will be between two to six degrees colder than usual for this time of the year.

"That is for much of Victoria and NSW," he said.

"Some of the coolest areas will tomorrow will be the Snow Mountain area, where we are expecting minus five degrees, along the Central Tablelands which will be around one to three degrees, and the northern ranges around five degrees."

Minimum temperatures in Sydney are expected to drop to about 10C.

Snow is forecast below 700m in Tasmania, and 900m in Victoria, NSW while the ACT is heading for sub zero temperatures by Monday.

In Melbourne and other parts of Victoria, it will drop below 8C at night.

In NSW there will be a mix of sun and cloud across the state today.

There are showers forecast along the coast and eastern ranges, possible afternoon thunderstorm in the northeast.

A shower or two on the far southern ranges and slopes, maybe evening snow on the Alpine peaks.

Further north, Brisbane will barely feel warmer than 20C at all on Monday and the "feels like" temperatures will remain low into the week due to dry windy conditions.
