The cold snap on Wednesday afternoon, called a Southerly Buster, was dramatic both temperature-wise and visually.
As the main front came through temperatures dramatically tumbled by 15, even nearly 20 degrees in a short period of time.
The front was dramatic to look at, this photo taken by Brendon Malcolm on Wednesday afternoon shows the spectacular southerly front arriving at Birdings Flat. Thanks for uploading this amazing photo directly to the WeatherWatch photo album Brendon!
