Here comes the chilly weather

A wintry blast is headed our way. The South Coast will have temperatures only reaching the high teens today and cooler over the weekend.

Weatherzone's senior meteorologist Brett Dutschke said the cold blast is likely to be the strongest this early in the season for five or six years.

"Some places (in southern Australia) may even be colder than any winter day in the past two years and possibly colder than any day this early in the season in more than 20 years," Mr Dutschke said.

"Temperatures will drop as much as 10 degrees below the early May average and be as much as 25 degrees colder than what it was a month ago," he said.

Gale Warning for Sydney and Eden Coastal Waters. Strong Wind Warning for the remaining coastal water on Saturday.
