Families hoping to catch a glimpse of some snow during the school holidays are in for some disappointing news, with forecasts suggesting there will be no snow falls on the Barrington Tops before the break ends.
Last year, snow blanketed parts of the New South Wales National Park as early as May but constant winds over the past few weeks have kept temperatures too high for any falls.
The winter school break is usually a busy time for the Barrington Tops.
But the National Parks' Upper Hunter Area Manager Dave Brown says this year conditions have not been ideal.
"With these, north-westerly and westerly breezes blowing, the temperatures are far too high at the minimal level to produce snow at this point in time unfortunately for those holiday makers at the last weekend of school holidays," he said.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service is advising people against travelling to the Barrington Tops over the next week, with wet weather leaving roads slippery and dangerous.
Mr Brown says there is not too much for people to see.
"With this wet weather, we have problems with limbs and trees falling down across tracks and some of the roads," he said.
"I suppose I would be suggesting to people at this stage that if they don't have to go up onto the Barringtons, it's just going to be wet and windy and not necessarily as pleasant as it could be."
