Wild weather on the way as several states wake to frost

In Sydney, fog is possible for many western suburbs with increased moisture from showers that hit the city last night and early this morning.
Fog and frost is possible for outer suburbs of Melbourne with temperatures in the low single digit, and a high chance along the southern ranges of NSW and northeast ranges of Victoria as temperatures dip below zero, well below in some places.
Frost is also likely for many places in Tasmania away from the coast and some districts of SA.
Later this week, rain, thunderstorms and snow are on their way for southern and eastern parts of the country – and there could be more wild weather on the way this weekend.
