It's one of those rare, rare times folks, when Brits are getting sunburnt while Aussies look for their woolly hats.

While we're lapping up a most welcome June purple patch, some of our mates Down Under have experienced their coldest day in decades.

The unusually cold weather has hit the southeast of the country, with snow and torrential rain sweeping across Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania.

In Inverell, residents have experienced their coldest day in 37 years, while Sydney also recorded the coldest day since 1984, reaching a max temperature of 10.3C (that's still definitely mild by British standards though).

"A major winter storm outbreak continues to impact multiple states," said Sky News weather meteorologist Alison Osborne.

"Central and central western parts of New South Wales have had a blanketing of snow with thick, fat flakes coming down.

"New England (in the state's north east) is set to see some very rare and very remarkable snowfall."

Things look set to return to normal soon enough in 'Straya though, with the weather expected to warm up heading into the weekend.

Meanwhile, the UK is braced for a heatwave, just as the Euros gets under way.

Parts of England could see temperatures reach the high 20s, and Met Office spokesperson Stephen Dixon said the weekend is on course to be the warmest of the year so far.

He said: "Friday will be largely fine and dry for much of the country.

"There is a band of cloud and light patchy rain in the far north-west of Scotland, and there'll be some showers affecting parts of the west as well."

Looking ahead to the Sunday - when England take on Croatia - he said: "It's going to be warmest in the South but best in the South East and East Anglia. The North West will have cloud with chances of rain in Scotland and some low cloud in south-west coasts but less extensive than in previous days.

"Highs across the country in the mid-20s, 29C in London, 23C in Edinburgh, 27C in Manchester, 24C in Cardiff."
