Cold mornings from VIC to QLD

Rob Sharpe, Sunday April 21, 2013 - 07:11 EST

This morning is the coldest morning since spring for Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane with a dry day on the cards.

In Melbourne the mercury had dropped to 7 degrees at 7am while Canberra fell to 0 degrees just before 6am. There is the chance they will become even colder before 9am. There is a similar story in Sydney and Brisbane where the temperature dropped to 11 and 12 degrees respectively, the coldest since October.

Eastern Australia is feeling a chill due to a cool airmass that has pushed as far north as southern QLD due to an east coast low directing persistent southerly winds. This morning has been the coldest since spring for so many locations because it is the first morning with light winds and clear skies combining with such a cool airmass since spring.

Today should be dry in each of these capitals today with cloud increasing ahead of a little rain tonight in Melbourne. In Sydney, skies will be mostly clear through the morning before cloud increases in the afternoon in time for the A-League Grand Final. In Canberra cloud will increase through the day, while the sun will shine all day in Brisbane.
