DON your beanies, scarves and all things warm because this week is set to be on the chilly side.

Bureau of Metrology forecaster Rick Threlfall said there was a chance of sleet developing today with temperatures to range from 1-12 degrees but said not to be fooled by the two-figure number.

"Twelve degrees is an optimistic prediction because, once you feel the wind, it will feel much colder," Mr Threlfall said.

Today, tomorrow and Thursday are set to be much the same, with clouds and drizzle on the cards.

Tomorrow and Thursday's temperatures may warm up a little, with predictions of 2-15 degrees but, again, feel cooler with the wind.

Average temperatures for this time of year are 5-18 degrees, so while below-average temperatures remain, keep those woollies on.
