‘Very cold air mass is moving from the Antarctic right over the country,’ Ms Scully said.

‘Temperatures will be 8 to 10C lower than the average, even in the Northern Territory and Queensland.

‘It’s a cold snap affecting the whole country, it’s a big one. The effects will be felt right into the weekend.’

The cold front is predicted to bring snow to Victoria at elevations above 800m.

Sydney will see temperatures drop gradually over the week, reaching a chill 9-degreesC on Sunday.

  • Lol, I live in Albany WA. You’re a little late telling us that “freezing temperatures and hail” are on the way. We had all of that on Good Friday four weeks ago! 1 degree Celsius and hail the size of peas.

  • I’m not a fan of extreme hot weather because we don’t have air conditioning. I like the cold weather but when it’s raining and I collect my 13 & 15 year olds from school they look like they had been swimming in a swamp..I’ll have the slow cooker working overtime..I’ll make oats for the family in the slow cooker overnight and butter chicken in the slow cooker for a 2 night meal

  • Well Tassie missed your list again. Pretty sure we’ll most likely be the coldest state, again. I guess we are used to it though
