Victoria's weather is living up to its changeable reputation.

After several days of unseasonably warm weather in the mid-20s last week, the tide has turned again.

Snow has fallen at Falls Creek, in the Alps for the second time this year as more normal autumn weather makes a comeback.

The snow began falling at around 8:00pm with below zero temperatures and is expected to continue through the week.

The official start to the ski season is still 25 days away.
