Goldfields set to shiver through more chilly weatherThursday June 26, 2014 - 13:54 EST
The weather bureau says cold temperatures in WA's Goldfields are set to continue and there is little relief in sight.
Yesterday morning, Southern Cross hit a low of 0.24 degrees, while Norseman had a minimum of 0.26.
Temperatures in the Goldfields have been consistently below the mean June minimum of 6.2 degrees.
The Kalgoorlie Bureau of Meteorology acting station manager, Nik Giannakis, says the morning frosts are likely to continue.
"It's still early day for winter at the moment, so we're only a month into it," he said.
"We still have July and August to go and I don't think our minimum temperatures have peaked yet."
He says it is likely the south-east coastal zone will see more rain throughout July and August.
"The rain is a little bit down this season and we certainly are in the rainy season for our latitude," he said.
"There's a 75 per cent chance that the southern parts of the Goldfields we will get between 100 and 200 millimetres of rain over July and August."
