Colder Shift coming to the Southeast of Australia.

After the mild weekend and start to the new working week, conditions are set to take a dive with a number of cold fronts moving through the southern ocean over the coming week, sending in showers and gusty cold conditions to Tasmania and southern Victoria.

The rest of the nation, appears to be escaping the coldest of the air, with a zonal pattern set up keeping the coldest of the air for that southeast mainland and Tasmania.

In the southeast temperatures are expected to take a reasonable dive.

Above average temperatures today in a fairly warm northwest flow have been welcome.

But come mid week a trough moving though will send in a band of cloud and rain, as well as much colder temperatures. Local hail and thunder and snowfalls redeveloping across the region will make the warmth of today, feel like a world away if you live in southern VIC and Tasmania.

Temperatures as of Wednesday 10am EST.

For graziers, this weather once again will bring up the risk of stress to young stock with wet conditions and high wind chill. For farmers with new crops in, frost will return to the forecast from Wednesday for inland NSW and northern VIC.

So even though many may escape the "worst" of the weather in terms of cold showery air, the dry cooler shift, combined with the clear skies, will bring up the risk of frost to many locations from Wednesday through the weekend.

Frost forecast for Wednesday
