If your natural response to cold weather is to stay indoors, rug up, make friends with your couch and activate hibernation mode, you might want to slip into your usual frosty routine over the weekend of Friday, September 25, Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27. Yes, it's spring — but thanks to a strong cold front that's currently moving through New South Wales, the Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting chilly and windy conditions across Sydney for the next few days.

In fact, while tops of 19 and 18 degrees are forecast for the Saturday and Sunday, you can prepare to feel much, much frostier, with the wind chill factor making it feel colder than expected. Explaining that the cold front is bringing cool and wintry conditions — "quite classic spring conditions" with "a bit of winter reminding us that we're not that far away from those wintry conditions" — BOM's acting NSW/ACT manager Agata Imielska advises that temperatures will feel ten degrees cooler than they actually are.

Tonight, for example, it's expected to feel like it is only between two and five degrees. And although tomorrow will look sunny, it'll also also be dry, windy and feel rather frosty — with a top of 18 degrees, but feeling more like eight or nine degrees.

The cold front, and these conditions, are expected to remain into next week — which is when they'll then start to settle down.

Elsewhere in the state over the weekend, damaging winds are forecast today and tonight in eastern areas such as the Hunter, while thunderstorms are possible around the state's south as well. In the alpine region, around 40 centimetres of snow could fall — and there's a risk of blizzards, too.

To keep an eye on temperatures over the weekend, head to the Bureau of Meteorology website.
