If you found it a little bit more difficult to get out of bed on Thursday morning, you weren't the only one, with Canberra shivering through its coldest day of the year.
The mercury dropped down to minus 4.4 degrees in parts of the territory at about 3.30am.
Temperatures were no better as the sun rose, hovering around minus 4 degrees for most of the early morning, while the apparent temperature was around minus 7.
Thursday's temperature set a new coldest temperature for the year in Canberra, going below minus 4 for the first time in 2019.
The previous lowest temperature for the year was minus 3.9, recorded on June 6.
Duty forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Rob Taggart said the cold snap was brought on by a large high pressure system hovering over the ACT and much of NSW.
"That's promoting generally clear skies at night which allows for a lot of cooling," Mr Taggart said.
"We're also one night out from the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, and there's a longer opportunity for cooling to take place.
"The air mass is also pretty dry, so there's not a lot of moisture in the atmosphere and the temperatures can keep falling."
#Canberra Airport recorded -4.4 degrees at 3:30am, the coldest official temperature recorded in the airport so far this year. But Canberra can get colder in June, with -7.0 degrees recorded as recently as 2015 https://t.co/hFZaktvr7Z#CanberraWeather— Bureau of Meteorology Australian Capital Territory (@BOM_ACT) June 19, 2019
Tuggeranong also had a freezing start to the day, with a low of minus 4.6 recorded just after 7am.
Thursday's temperature were five degrees colder than the June average minimum temperature of 1.2, but are still a long way from the record low for June.
Canberra Airport recorded minus 7 in 2018, while the temperature dropped even further to minus 8 in 1957.
However, those hoping for a reprieve from the chilly conditions might have to keep the jumpers and electric blankets out for a bit longer.
The bureau has forecast a run of four straight days of minimum temperatures below zero.
"The high pressure system will be with us for the next seven days or so, so there will be variations in the temperature, but we will be looking at a fairly long run of cold mornings," Mr Taggart said.
"Based on the current forecast, Tuesday will be the first day of a minimum above zero."
Friday is expected to reach similar temperatures, with a low of minus 4 forecast and a top of 11.
Saturday and Sunday have a low of minus 2 predicted ahead of partly cloudy days, while Monday's low will rise to minus 1.
