People in parts of the Goulburn Murray region have shivered through their longest consecutive period of sub-zero temperatures in five years.
For the first time since 2007, Albury has recorded five nights in a row when the mercury fell below zero, while Corryong, Rutherglen and Shepparton experienced temperatures down to minus four over the weekend.
A duty forecaster with the weather bureau, Andrea Peace, says the heavy frosts of the past few days will be replaced by substantial rain when a low-pressure system arrives tomorrow.
"As far as the outlook goes, we're not expecting to see any temperatures remotely [like] what we have experienced over the last couple of days but we are still in the middle of winter so we could still see some colder outbreaks for the coming weeks," she said.
