Chilly morning for NSW and QLDRob Sharpe, Monday November 12, 2012 - 09:23 EDT
People from Sydney to Brisbane awoke to their coldest November morning in years, reminding them of early spring.
Sydney and Bankstown had their coldest November morning in two years, falling to 13 degrees. It was such a cool morning due to clear skies, light winds and a cool air mass in the wake of a trough.
Elsewhere in Sydney it was even colder with Holsworthy having its coldest November morning in nine years, dropping to seven degrees. This kind of morning temperature would fit well into early September. The cold temperatures allowed fog to form in Richmond with visibility dropping as low as 250 metres at 6:30am.
In New South Wales the clear skies and light winds led to many locations having their coldest November morning in six years including Cape Byron, Grafton, Scone, Gosford, Penrith and Cessnock.
In Queensland, Brisbane had its coldest November morning in two years and Double Island Point had its coldest in six years. However, tonight is likely to be colder for much of the state as winds will ease with clearer skies near the coast.
Tomorrow morning is unlikely to be as cold for Sydney as the air mass in the region will be too warm, with Penrith set to reach a top of 31 degrees today compared to 24 degrees yesterday.
