Coldest morning of winter for NSW Alps

Rob Sharpe, Sunday July 16, 2017 - 14:57 EST

In Thredbo, Perisher and Cooma, this morning was the coldest it has been all winter.

The coldest location was Perisher Valley, where the mercury tumbled to -12 degrees soon after sunrise. At Thredbo it was -10.4 degrees, making it colder than any other morning so far this season.

The most startling was Cooma, which had it's coldest July night in six years, dropping to -9.7 degrees.

Elsewhere in NSW it was a little warmer than forecasts suggested earlier in the week as the coldest air with this event stayed a little further south.

Winds will pick up over the ranges tonight in anticipation of a cold front, meaning that temperatures won't quite be so cold. However for those outdoors the wind will probably help make it feel colder.
