Feeling a little chilly, Brisbanites? There's a reason for that. But it's not just the usual wintry temperatures that's making the city shiver — rather, it's Brissie's coldest morning of the year so far.

While the mercury will hit the 23-degree maximum mark today, the morning started with a frosty 6.9 degrees. The dip comes as part of a cold front across the east coast. In some areas in New South Wales and Victoria, temperatures are predicted to hit their coldest point in two years.

To put the dip in context, 23.4 degrees is the month's average maximum temperature to date, while 12.5 degrees is the minimum. In fact, 11.8 degrees is the usual June average historically, according to data spanning from 2000 to 2016. It's the second time the temp has dropped into single digits this month, following a 9.3-degree low on Tuesday, June 12.

If you're not too keen on the extra dose of chilliness each morning, we're sorry to advise that minimums of nine degrees and under are forecast until Thursdays, although maximums will reach between 19 and 23. Still, we can stop saying that 'winter is coming' — yep, winter is definitely here.
