6 More Weeks Of Summer Weather Expected Before BIG Cold Snap

Ahead of what may just be the coldest winter ever experienced in Australia, we're being told to expect hot weather to continue well into April as we cop an extended summer season.

Expert weather forecaster David Taylor says that we will cop at least six more weeks of hot summer-like temperatures ahead of an unusually short autumn.

Mr Taylor warns that 'winter will kick in viciously' with the coldest temperatures seen for many years.


According to Mr Taylor, we are set to endure such a cold winter due to a calm period in sunspot activity.

'Sunspots will stay at an all-time low for years and not be active again until 2025,'

'There is a big cold front developing in the Southern Coral Sea that will affect us in June and we are also seeing a cold front developing south of Tasmania.'

Mr Taylor also believes that during the 2018 or 2019 cyclone season we will see a cyclone hit land somewhere between Fraser Island and Rainbow Beach - an unusually southern point for a cyclone to cross the coast.

Mr Taylor also predicted months ago a cyclone would cross the coast near Townsville in the beginning of March.

The Bureau of Meteorology is currently monitoring two possible areas where cyclones may form just north of Queensland.
