About 37 flights out of the airport have already been cancelled on Monday.

APPARENT TEMPERATURE PLUNGES IN SYDNEY
Aussies have been urged to rug up and get ready for the first taste of winter as temperatures drop across the country.
Temperatures across the southern parts of the country have already dipped well below average and meteorologists predict more cold days are on the way.
The bureau’s weather observations showed the temperature plunged in Sydney overnight.
The temperature dropped to 10.5C at Sydney airport at 4am today — but the apparent temperature was a chilly 0.8C as cold winds blasted the Harbour City. At Mount Boyce it was -1C but felt like -8.3C.
A total of 10.8mm was also recorded in the rain gauge.
More to come.
