Today's Most Chill Snow Pics Near Sydney, And Even In Queensland
Yes, it actually snowed overnight in Queensland, which last happened in 2015.
There's a strong cold front around. You know that by now. Said piece of nasty wintry weather travelled all the way north to the NSW/QLD border overnight, bringing snow to anywhere above 1,000 metres above sea level.
That meant heavy snow for parts of the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney -- including the towns of Katoomba (elevation 1017 metres) and Blackheath (elevation 1065m).
It also meant snow in the tablelands around Stanthorpe, on the NSW/QLD border, where the land rises to about 1,000 metres above sea level.
Not much accumulated on the ground, as it did in 2015 cm when 8 cm fell, but as you can clearly see in the video below, snow flurries occurred.
Meanwhile further south, the countryside west of the Blue Mountains also got its share of the white stuff for the second time this week.
This was the scene on the Bells Line of Road in the Blue Mountains.
Do you like hot dogs? Well here's a cold one.
Lithgow, west of the Blue Mountains (elevation 950m), got a nice dusting too.
And of course, the snow resorts got their fair share ahead of the official ski season opening this long weekend, which promises to be the best in years.
