Let it snow

Temperatures plummeted across Australia’s southeast yesterday as Jack Frost dressed up as a ‘polar outbreak’ came a-knockin’. In another early taste of winter, Alpine regions in Victoria, Tassie and southeast NSW received some snow last night as a strong cold front brought temperatures in Victoria to a freezing “feels like” -7C. And there’s more where that came from… Snow is forecast to fall in Victoria’s High Country, southwest NSW and the Tasmanian highlands today. And the cold front is forecast to continue into the weekend, with winds making temperatures extra chilly. But don’t dust off the skis just yet… La Niña – the weather system that’s brought above-average rainfall to Oz this year – means this year’s snow season is forecast to be underwhelming, as it is when El Niño’s around.
