Freezing conditions, severe frost and driving rains descended in southeast Australia before the start of the working week, and the very winter conditions are likely to persist.
Parts of Sydney received 33.4 mm of rain from 8.30 a.m. with as much as 20 mm as possible before the end of the day until Monday morning – making the total almost half a centimeter below the old size.
Mount Boyce registered the coldest Sydney temperature on Monday morning with 3.1C and only reached 5.5C from 10.30 a.m.
In the south, the conditions were even worse, with the coldest temperature in South Australia being recorded for seven years, while Victoria was suffering from severe frost warnings.

A meteorology agency predictor told Daily Mail Australia that a large and slow-moving high-pressure system near South Australia caused severe frost in much of Victoria.
& # 39; Generally, light winds and clear skies allow & # 39; overnight temperatures drop dramatically, & the predictor said.
& # 39; Bringing the temperatures to zero, clear skies and light winds together with fairly dry air provide perfect conditions for frost. & # 39;
Meanwhile, the rainfall in Sydney at night and on Monday was the result of an upper-level system that was slowly moving across the region.
The rain was expected to start clearing by the end of Wednesday before more showers would return on Thursday and Friday before the circumstances cleared up.

By Thursday, the conditions along the south coast and regions will dry up with some showers that are expected along the Divide.
A forecaster from Bureau of Meteorology told Daily Mail Australia that Sydney and the north coast of New South Wales would expect showers all Monday through because a high pressure system would go east and then turn south and southeast.
& # 39; The good news is that the trend for showers is declining, but decent showers are now expected & # 39 ;, the predictor said.
The high pressure system will leave for the Tasman Sea towards the end of Monday and move slowly eastwards in the coming days, while the showers remain isolated for the northern half of the coast.
Widespread areas in the south of New South Wales inland got frost on Monday morning because areas in Victoria were nearby.
Another cold front is expected to move across the Great Australian Bite in South Australia and Victoria, before the strong front follows on Friday.
Victorians can expect further severe frosts on Tuesday, along with some isolated fog in some areas, but widespread in the southern parts of the state.
Fog and fog are predicted every morning this week in Victoria, but will usually give way to mild and sunny days after the morning frost is clear.

& # 39; A high-pressure ridge that stretched over South Australia on Sunday night made it possible to combine clear skies and light winds with a sustained amount of cold and dry air & # 39 ;, said a WeatherZone statement.
& # 39; This is a perfect blend of ingredients for temperatures to fall. & # 39;
& # 39; These were the coldest mornings in five and twelve years, & # 39; read the statement.
The only good news for residents is that July is a dry month for much of Southeast and East Coast Australia to Sydney.
& # 39; The probability of a dryer from July to September is highest in Southwestern and Southeastern Australia, where the probability of a drier period of three months is more than 75%, & quot;
& # 39; July is probably drier than average for much of southern WA, southeast SA, Eastern Tasmania and much of the eastern mainland, from Victoria to eastern NSW and to southern Queensland. & # 39;
