Keeping your feet warm for a couple of cents per day Toasting your toes without trashing your power bill, the Heat Master Foot Mat Heater is a smart way to stay warm this winter. If your feet tend to feel the cold, even in a seemingly warm room, then you know that thicker socks don't always help when you're sitting still for hours at a stretch. Even if you place a blanket over your lap and legs, it can be tough to warm stubbornly cold feet.

Coldest day of the year? Tick. Coldest June day since 1985? Tick. Thick fog? You bet.

Melbourne’s Sunday broke more than one winter record, and there’s more icy conditions on the way.

Melburnians arose on Sunday morning to find thick fog engulfing much of the city, and Bureau of Metereology senior forecaster Richard Carlyon said some suburbs, such as Viewbank in the north-east, “just saw no sunshine at all”.

Parts of Australia hit with coldest start to the year

Parts of Australia hit with coldest start to the year A cold snap has hit Australia’s south east, with temperatures in some regions dropping below zero. Many are waking up to the coldest morning of the year today, with icy winds, frost and snow for some regions. The blistering chill is being felt in parts of NSW, Victoria and inland South Australia with the mercury in the ACT dropping to -4 degrees. Parts of central NSW are also expected to drop to -5 degrees and highland areas could see temperatures at -10 degrees. The Bureau of Meteorology said every state and territory will experience some level of frost, especially on the southeast coast.

While increasing temperatures and wind normally help disperse fog by the afternoon, Melbourne CBD reached a maximum of only 9.6 degrees on Sunday - the lowest June temperature since 1985.

Regional towns such as Wangaratta, Shepparton and Albury-Wodonga are expected to drop to -3 degrees on Monday and a low of -1 is forecast for near Melbourne airport on Monday.

Melbourne plunged as low as 3.6 degrees on Sunday - the lowest since September 4 last year - and Mr Carlyon said it could be even colder on Monday.

That means the blanket of fog will remain in or near Melbourne at least into Monday morning.

Mr Carlyon said weary commuters should “expect a lot of the state to be in the negative at sunlight on Monday”.

“We’re likely to have extensive fog overnight and on Monday morning in the Melbourne area. There will be a bit more wind tomorrow which should help disperse it, so we will end up with a sunny afternoon,” he said.

“But it will be a cold start with the temperature in Melbourne two degrees and foggy, and some temperatures close to zero in the suburbs."

Melbourne is then forecast to hit about 15 degrees with some afternoon sun on Monday.

The icy conditions shouldn’t be a surprise: the solstice was on Saturday, marking the heart of winter and meaning we saw the sun for the shortest time.

A combination of icy temperatures, light winds, clear skies and high humidity has formed the fog, according to Mr Carlyon.

“There was hardly a breath of wind around Melbourne today," he said.

"We had clear skies last night that helped allow the temperature to drop so far ... we’ve had those ingredients today and we’re likely to see them overnight and again tomorrow morning.”

With the fog causing poor visibility on the roads, BoM have also issued a road weather alert for all of Melbourne, along with a frost warning for much of the state.
