Australians will shiver ahead of another freezing weekend as cool temperatures, icy winds and rain continue to lash much of the country.

The cold weather is forecast to continue this weekend as a prolonged cold snap settles into eastern parts of Australia, causing temperatures to plummet.

Widespread frost is expected in the eastern third of the country and will extend to southern Australia and southern parts of the Northern Territory.

It comes after Sydney and Melbourne shivered at 7C and 1.6C respectively on Wednesday, with temperatures “sensible” even lower.

Australians celebrated the winter solstice on Friday, with fewer than 10 hours of sunlight expected today amid frigid temperatures this week.

Australians will shiver through another freezing weekend as cool temperatures, icy winds and rain continue to lash much of the country.

Sydney

A strong surge of southerly winds along the New South Wales coast will cause temperatures to plummet in and around Sydney this weekend.

Weatherzone meteorologist Yoska Hermanzes told Daily Mail Australia the flurry of strong gusts could reach between 60 and 65km/hour on Saturday afternoon.

“These winds will make the city feel quite cool,” Ms Hermanzes said.

Sydney is forecast to receive gusty winds and rain this weekend with the maximum temperature struggling to get above 14C.

The forecaster said Jervis Bay, Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter Coast would be hardest hit by the rain, with temperatures falling to 10C.

“In Sydney, the rain will last until Sunday afternoon,” Ms Hermanzes said.

Strong winds will move north from Sydney to southeast Queensland, where gusts along the coast will reach 40km/hour on Sunday and Monday morning.

“The maximum temperature on Saturday will only reach 17 to 18C, which is quite cold for Brisbane,” he said.
