Four seasons in on weekend: Australia swelters before polar blast is expected to hit east coast

Australia will enjoy each of the four seasons this weekend as temperatures soar before a polar blast brings wild winds, thunderstorms and even snow.

Sydneysiders will get a taste of Melbourne’s erratic weather as the east coast’s scorching temperatures significantly drop within 24-hours.

Crowds were seen flocking to Bondi Beach on Saturday morning to soak up the 31C sunny weather before a bitter cold change sends temperatures plummeting to just 17C on Sunday. 

Weatherzone Meteorologist Joel Pippard told Daily Mail Australia a north westerly change was drawing heat from the Kimberly region, bringing in the very high temperatures to the east coast.
