Cold continues “down under.”
According to news.com.au, “Large parts of Australia face a cold week ahead as a high pressure system intensifies across the south east. Daytime maximum temperatures are also expected to remain several degrees below average for most of the week.”
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) warned of temperatures 4 to 8 degrees Celsius below average. That translates to 7 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
“Essentially we’ve seen a very strong cold front moving across the south east parts of Australia over the weekend,” senior meteorologist Miriam Bradbury said.
BOM issued a severe frost warning for Victoria’s north and northeast on Tuesday morning.
“It will be the first in a run of very cold mornings across the state, with minimums typically between -4 and 1 degree C across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings,” the BOM said.
