Eastern parts of NSW and QLD have shivered through another cold August morning, the coldest in four years for some places.
Light and dry westerly winds combined with clear skies last night, producing a very cold morning east of the Great Dividing Range.
This morning was the coldest for August since 2008 for places stretching from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. Included in this list were Bankstown, which dipped as low as one degree and the Sunshine Coast Airport, recording a minimum of two degrees.
Thick fog and frost formed in parts of Sydney as a result of the cold morning. Campbelltown's visibility was reduced to 100 metres as the mercury reached -1 degree, the lowest since last July.
Further north, Brisbane continued its cold start to the month with a low of five degrees. This is six below average and follows on from yesterday's low of four, which was the coldest morning in four years.
Sunday morning will be another cold one with a similar weather setup expected over eastern Australia. Looking at the start of the new week though, Monday morning should not be quite as cold. A slightly warmer air mass and an increase in winds during Sunday night will prevent a repeat of this morning's doona-worthy weather on Monday.
