Chilly night over NSW and ACT

Ben McBurney, Friday May 3, 2013 - 11:54 EST

Parts of New South Wales and the ACT shivered through their coldest
nights since September.

Clear skies combined with light winds overnight causing the mercury to
plummet. The ACT and southern parts of NSW were the coldest, as a high
pressure system sat over the region in the early hours of this
morning.

Bega and Albury in NSW both saw their chilliest mornings since
September, reaching one and two degrees respectively. Canberra and
Tuggeranong in the ACT plummeted to minus two degrees, also their
coldest nights since spring.

In and around Sydney, residents would have been feeling a bit colder
than usual this morning. The city fell to 11 degrees, its second
coldest morning since October, while Campelltown and Badgerys Creek
dipped to just six degrees, their coldest since October.

Saturday night won't be as cold as cloudier and windier conditions
move over the region ahead of a low pressure trough. However, cold
nights are on the cards again on Sunday and Monday as a cooler air
mass in the wake of the trough combines with clearer skies and lighter
winds.
