Australians have packed on the layers as icy chills continue to blow across southeast Australia because of the cold front that’s been pushing through the Great Australian Bight since Wednesday.
The weather bureau has also warned the farmers that the animals especially lambs and sheep exposed to these extreme conditions can cause health risk to these animals.
