Snow was recorded at Mt Lofty with the cold snap leaving Adelaide residents to shiver through its coldest day of the year with a maximum of just 11 degrees on Monday.

In New South Wales, widespread showers are set to remain until at least Saturday, with strong winds expected throughout the week.

Flood warnings are in place for the Macintyre, Bogan, Warrego and Paroo rivers across New South Wales with at least 40mm of rainfall expected over the coming days.

Queensland is also bracing for cooler conditions, with freezing temperatures forecast for Granite Belt and the Bunya Mountains this week.
