Antarctic Blast Could See Overnight Temperatures Drop 10C In Australia

Antarctic Blast Could See Overnight Temperatures Drop 10C In Australia

Here's one for you, imagine overnight temperatures hitting as low as 12C in autumn - doesn't it reach 12C overnight in the UK during Summer and we're pretty bloody happy with that?

Well, Australians are set for an 'Antarctic' blast where temperatures could plunge by a freezing 10C from Thursday, ending a warm Autumn - lucky them. In October 2017, the UK was set for -11C, so we can't say we're all that sympathetic.

Apparently Melbourne will be the hardest hit with its coldest May weather since 1978, but don't worry because temperatures are expected to come back to the 20s as of next week. We're not sure how you all would have coped.

It will be unusually cold, with most areas south of Sydney to cool by 10C in just 24 hours, a Weatherzone spokesman told Daily Mail Australia.

Temperatures will be an unbelievable 2C to 6C below average for May across south-east South Australia, Victoria and southern New South Wales. The climate will struggle to rise above 12C. We guess you'll all have to dig your coats out instead of wearing a t-shirt like usual.

The Bureau of Meteorology said that the low pressure system could hit between 8pm and 10pm on Wednesday, bringing possible hail, thunderstorms and about a month's worth of rain by the end of the week.

We know, it's not a competition of whose weather has been worse and ours has been pretty bloody scorchio recently but c'mon, a few days of hellish weather isn't going to be that bad, is it?

This is pretty much the opposite of last month, when the people of Sydney enjoyed the hottest April day on record with temperatures reportedly hitting 36.8C.

Yes, we said 36C and we thought we were lucky getting one cheeky day at 27C.

Sydney and Melbourne have enjoyed a very warm start to May, with average maximum temperatures five degrees above usual levels. So it's only right for you guys to get a bit of a blizzard (even if it is a pretty solid 12C).

A Weatherzone spokesman said: "Sydney especially has had a very warm autumn so far. So when this cold air comes through from Thursday, it will be a severe jolt."

Temperatures are expected to come back into the 20s as of next week so cancel your weekend plans and stay indoors whatever you do. Alternatively, fly over here and enjoy what we expect to be a very underwhelming summer - just like every year.
