Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia bracing for record cold in coming days.
Canberra is forecast for a maximum of 7C on Friday, which would break the city’s record for the earliest day below 10C, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
Temperatures could be between 8C and 14C below average in the country’s south-east.
Melbourne is forecast for a maximum of just 13C on Thursday and Friday, which would make it the coldest April day since 1996.
One of the bureau’s forecasters, Dean Narramore, added that parts of northern and central South Australia could experience “one of the coldest April days since the 60s or 70s.”
“It’s pretty unusual to see a cold front this strong, this early in the year,” Narramore said on Wednesday.
