A freezing cold snap will continue to batter Australia's southeast until Wednesday when the weather is expected to ease and return to more bearable temperatures.

Canberra woke up to a blast of icy weather on Sunday morning as the mercury clocked just -5.4C and our capital city is expected to reach 0C later tonight.

The Bureau of Meteorology said while Canberra experienced its coldest day of the year so far, a series of cold fronts sweeping across the country have left many states grabbling with colder-than-usual temperatures.

Mr Marramore told Daily Mail Australia that Victoria, inland New South Wales and Southern Queensland had cold mornings and below zero temperatures that are expected to last until Wednesday.

'All eastern states can expect to experience temperatures two to six degrees below average on Monday and Tuesday before above average temperatures will return on Wednesday,' Mr Marramore said.

'The warmer weather is expected to arrive by the weekend with temperatures reaching two or three degrees above average.'

Sydney is expected to enjoy mostly sunny weather throughout the week as maximum temperatures reach 21C on Wednesday, with possible showers on Friday.

Tasmania is also expected to heat up around the middle of the week with maximum  temperatures reaching 18C on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mr Marramore said the worst of Adelaide's weather is behind them and the state is set to reach mid to high teens by Monday with sunny or partly cloudy conditions throughout the week.

But Darwin is expected to have sunny conditions for the week and months ahead.

'Alice Springs might have a light frost in the southern parts of the region but it will heat up throughout the week and beyond,' Mr Marramore said.

The chilly weather in the Victorian capital continued throughout the day with the mercury sitting at just 12C by 3pm, marking it the coldest day of the year for the city.

The Bureau of Meteorology said a series of cold fronts sweeping across the state from the Great Australian Bight - the strongest on Friday night - was causing the cold weather.
