Reports of snow falling near southern Qld border

By Sam Burgess, Tuesday June 25, 2013 - 17:19 EST

There have been reports of snow flurries on the Granite Belt in Queensland's inland border region this afternoon.

Pictures from the small town of Eukey, south of Stanthorpe, have been posted on social media.

Jonty Hall from the Weather Bureau says while the falls have not been confirmed, the conditions are right for snow.

"The air mass is just cold enough to support some of that sort of wintery mix, really some rain mixed in with some flakes of snow, which we call sleet in this part of the world," he said.

"It was more like proper snow on the other side of the [New South Wales] border, up in the Guyra area."
