Illawarra shivers in cold blast

Temperatures plunged suddenly when a savage cold front tore through the Illawarra yesterday.

It was a day of conflicting seasons, with a morning of blue skies and unseasonable warmth giving way to winds of up to 90km/h and sporadic rain about lunchtime.

In the region’s south, the temperature dropped from 19.9 degrees to 12.4 degrees in less than an hour, while the “feels like” temperature – and there were plenty of people feeling it – plunged to 1.7 degrees.

In Wollongong the “feels like” measure dropped to a chilly 3.6 degrees by 2pm.

Canberra became a winter wonderland as rain showers turned to snow after the snow line momentarily dropped to under 600 metres over the capital.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s Sean Carson said a short-lived snow shower passed over Canberra from 10am after some intense rainfall caused the temperature to drop below 3 degrees, with the “feels like” temperature dipping as low as minus 4.

“The shower was intense enough to drag some very cold air from up in the atmosphere down to the surface,” he said.

Snow was expected in parts of the Southern Highlands last night.

The Illawarra can look forward to a blustery day today before the skies begin to clear tomorrow. But expect a severe case of Mondayitis, with early morning temperatures forecast to drop into minus figures in some areas.
