Some of the coldest conditions are being felt across the country, with strong winds making it feel much colder.

Conditions will be moderate in South Australia this evening, as severe weather warnings for damaging winds are now stretching across parts of eastern New South Wales, the ACT and Victoria in a vigorous air flow.

Relatively milder and drier conditions are expected on Thursday after a frosty start inland, but further cold fronts will bring cold and showery weather into this weekend.

Another cold front will be approaching the SA coast on Friday, moving through Tasmania and western Victoria during Friday evening and into Saturday morning.

A follow-up stronger cold front and low-pressure system will approach SA, Victoria, and Southern NSW on Saturday night and into Sunday, bringing another burst of cold showers, cold air and low-level snow to 800-900m and strong westerly winds.

While this second, stronger system will not be as windy as the system currently impacting the south-east, there is the potential for strong to localised damaging winds about the coast and elevated areas, especially on Saturday night in SA, and Sunday for Victoria and parts of south-east NSW.

Maximum temperatures will remain below average well into next week.

In the national context, frosty, hazardous conditions will be felt across the country from Friday. Showers will develop across western Qld, western NSW and northern Victoria and a Hazardous Surf Warning is in effect for the central NSW coast due to large wave and swell conditions.

The Bureau is recommending communities stay up to date with the latest Bureau warnings through the Bureau’s website and BOM Weather app and follow the advice of emergency services.
