Brace yourself! Australians are warned that it will be a VERY chilly start to the winter as the Arctic cold-shot progresses across the country – but the long-term outlook is strikingly different
- The majority of Australia will start the cold week next week with cold temperatures
- The temperatures will fall below the average maximum in the coming days
- Comes after Melbourne shivered by his coldest May day in almost 20 years
- Because of a succession of cold fronts after a recent explosion of mild temperatures
- Long winter forecast warmer and drier than the average in most of Australia
Now it's time to cover the winter for a few more days.
Meteorologists have warned a cold start of the colder months, with temperatures that will fall below the average maximum in the coming days.
Darwin, Perth and Brisbane will only be the capitals where temperatures will rise above 20 degrees next week.
Melburnians will be among those who feel the shivers of winter just a few days after they shivered through the coldest May day in the city in almost 20 years.
It's time to record with forecasters who warn of a cold start of winter in the first week of June
The city reached 10.6C on Wednesday, the coldest May day in Melbourne since 2000, while Ballarat was as high as 5.7C.
Temperatures will rise to 15 degrees in Melbourne in the next few days and then fall to 12 degrees Celsius on Monday, three degrees below the maximum average at the beginning of June.
According to the predecessor of the Bureau of Meteorology, Dean Stewart, 700 meters of snow is expected to fall over Victoria on Monday.
Most parts of Australia will shiver due to the chilly temperatures on Monday

& # 39; Until May 25 we had mild weather conditions in the state until this week, when a succession of cold fronts came through & said # 39; Stewart to Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; The cold air comes from Antarctica far south of the continent and passes through a series of cold fronts. & # 39;
Most of New South Wales will shiver with chilly temperatures for a second consecutive week.

The nighttime temperatures in Sydney will drop to 9 degrees Celsius next week and 4 degrees C to the farther west at the foot of the Blue Mountains.
Further south of Sydney the temperature is between 4-8 degrees along the coast, while Young in the southwest of the state will drop to -2 on Tuesday.
In the capital of the country, Canberra has already seen night temperatures drop below 0C and will only reach a peak of 9C on Monday.
Even Brisbane will withstand an explosion of cold weather on Tuesday, where temperatures will drop to 9C and reach only 19C.
While we feel the cold next week, the Bureau of Meteorology's long-term winter outlook is warmer and drier than the average in most parts of Australia.
Southeast Australia can get a dry start in the winter, with early estimates showing that rainfall in June is likely to be below average in NSW, Victoria, East-South Australia and southern parts of both Queensland and the Northern Territory.

& # 39; In other parts of the country there is no strong swing towards exceptionally wetter or drier than average in June & # 39 ;, said the agency's long-range forecast manager, Dr. Andrew Watkins.
& # 39; Dryer than average conditions generally mean more cloud-free nights, increasing the risk of frost in susceptible areas. & # 39;
Temperatures in the rest of the winter are probably warmer than average.
Wednesday was Melbourne & # 39; s coldest May day since 2000, where it only reached 10.6C
& # 39; Our climate outlook shows that most states and territories have large areas where the odds are greater than 80 percent for warmer than average days, & # 39; said Dr. Watkins.
& # 39; Winter evenings are probably warmer than average in Tasmania, along the southeastern coast of the mainland and northern Washington that stretches across parts of the NT. & # 39;
& # 39; This certainly does not mean that we will not have rainfall over the winter – it is the southern wet season – but it does support the model forecast for a drier than average winter, with the possibility of more evaporation than normal, & # 39; Dr. Watkins said.
