It comes as a cold air mass sweeping southeastern Australia this week brought the first sprinkles of snow and the lowest temperatures so far this year.

However, a warm and sunny day is forecast for most of the east today, easing this morning's chilly cold front.

"High pressure is bringing clear skies and weak winds elsewhere, resulting in a chilly morning," Weatherzone said.

A top of 19 degrees is expected for Melbourne, with winds up to 45km/h in the morning and a slight chance of a shower tonight.

The frostiness of the morning will be felt in Canberra, before temperatures warm to a top of 19 degrees later in the day.

Similar temperatures are expected in Hobart, with late showers and 19 degrees.
