Winter has arrived with a vengeance in Australia as freezing conditions bring mammoth snowfalls to ski fields and frosty conditions to the east coast.

Videos posted online show skiers out in blizzard-like conditions at the Perisher valley resort, just north of Mount Kosciuszko, on Tuesday, while temperatures in Canberra are forecast to plummet to -5 degrees.

Perisher officials said its fields had 3cm of snow overnight and another clip posted on Monday afternoon showed heavy snow falling and piled on rocky outcrops as skiers hit the slopes.

Temperatures as low as -5.7 degrees were recorded at the top of Perisher’s express run.

But the cold weather impacted right across Australia, with the lowest June temperatures in years recorded in parts of Western Australia, Queensland, NSW and even the Northern Territory.

Over 30 weather stations in NSW recorded temperatures below freezing on Monday morning – many in the Central Tablelands west of Sydney.

Australia’s coldest place on Monday was Richmond, an hour northwest of Sydney, where the temperature tumbled to -6.4 degrees.

But it’ll get even colder this week, with rain and gusty winds also forecast. 

By Wednesday morning, temperatures are set to drop below freezing in parts of Tasmania, Victoria, NSW and even Queensland.

Sky News Australia’s meteorologist Bradlyn Oakes said the icy conditions and low temperatures are all being driven by the cold front in the south-east.

‘More and more cold does build in as more high pressure builds behind that cold front through the coming days,’ Ms Oakes said.

The lowest temperature in Queensland on Monday was Oakey, 28km northwest of Toowomba, falling to -2.1 degrees. 

Oakey also recorded the state’s lowest temperature since 2019 when it fell to -4 on Friday.

Canberra will see a week of minimums below zero, dropping to -5 on Wednesday.

Melbourne is forecast to cop showers all week, with temperatures between 12 and 15 degrees. 

Hobart will be cloudy with possible showers and will rarely climb above 12.

Adelaide could see showers and will be slightly warmer than its southern neighbours, at between 14 and 16 degrees. 

Sydney will be spared the big freeze, hovering between 16 and 18 degrees, although overnight on Tuesday the mercury will drop to 5 degrees.

Brisbane will fare best of all, with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 20s.
