Central Australia chills out as temperature plungesBy Gail Liston, Friday June 21, 2013 - 14:24 EST
Overnight temperatures in central Australia have dipped to zero.
The weather bureau's Ben Sutor says it is the coldest night so far this year.
He says the bureau was predicting four degrees and has been taken by surprise.
"There's a good few mornings like this to come," he said.
"Certainly through the weekend we're going to be close to that freezing mark and then a little bit more cloud coming in at the beginning of next week so that will lift the temperatures back up again."
