A cold front surging over eastern Australia mid-week looks set to yield a flurry of Autumn snow.
This cold front will be unusually intense for Autumn, with very cold air extending from Tasmania up to the tablelands of NSW.
While fairly common for Tasmania and the Victorian Alps, snowfall this early in May is quite unusual for the NSW ranges.
As the coldest air pushes over NSW late Wednesday and Thursday temperatures will plummet, leading to freezing temperatures. Since precipitation is forecast during this period elevated locations may see a light dusting of snowfall as far north as the Central Tablelands.
Alpine regions will see more widespread snow, with southern Victorian ski-fields likely to witness the heaviest snowfalls.
