The cold weather that has gripped the south is set to extend its tentacles into Northern Australia from tonight. The cold weather down south is due to a complex LOW pressure system. That LOW is dragging cold polar air northwards and some of that airmass will infiltrate Northern Queensland tonight through to Wednesday and across the Top End of the Territory between Monday night and Wednesday.

The Bureau Of Meteorology's Meteye also indicates that we could witness frosts in Central and Northern Queensland on Monday and Tuesday mornings inland of the coast.

While this cold snap is certainly not overly unusual it may come as a bit of a shock to the system of northerners who have enjoyed a relatively warm Winter so far.

Temperatures begin warming up again later in the week and by the weekend will likely end up well above average again.
