Snow hits Oberon amongst warm spring

Jamie-Louise Morrison, Thursday October 3, 2013 - 15:05 EST

There have been reports of snowfall in Oberan today, just before the official end of the snow season on the October long weekend.

Yesterday, Oberon saw temperatures reach 15 degrees, whereas today its unlikely to even near 10 degrees. As the ground temperature is above 0 degrees it is unlikely that the snow will settle, however flurries are likely to have fallen this morning.

The snow may have come as a surprise to some people after a warm start to spring, however having snow at this time of year is not all that unusual. The snow is due to a strong front crossing New South Wales bringing very cold air behind it, creating snow flurries as opposed to showers in Oberon. Elsewhere, the Snowy Mountains have seen 5-10cm of snow, making great news for those who are heading to the slopes this weekend.
