THE fine weather should hang around for the first half of the week; but unfortunately so will the chilly temperatures and frosty mornings.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Gavin Holcombe said yesterday's temperatures were pretty close to average.

"There were south-easterly winds around (yesterday) with a top of 18 degrees, which is one below average," he said. "The winds will be more easterly (today) as the system heads out over the Tasman Sea.

"It will be a cold morning (today) with a possible chance of frost."

Frost is also expected tomorrow morning.

"After (tomorrow) there should be no more frost about for the rest of the week," Mr Holcombe said.

"We might see a shower or two on Thursday, which will continue on for the rest of the week as well."

Weather Temps:

  • Yesterday: 5-18 degrees
  • Today: 4-18 degrees
  • Tomorrow: 1-18 degrees
  • Thursday: 7-18 degrees
  • Friday: 8-17 degrees
