This Video Of A Kangaroo Hopping Through Snow Is Going Viral

If there's one image that would convince any of the doubters it has in fact been snowing in Australia this weekend, this would be it. 

Video of a kangaroo hopping through mounds of snow was posted on Twitter by Christopher Price on Saturday.

It has since gone viral, attracting about 6700 likes and over 1400 retweets as of time of writing.

Snow continued to fall across the mountain regions of NSW and parts of Victoria on Sunday morning, as dual cold fronts that have been sweeping across the country head north.

Residents in Oberon, in the NSW Central Tablelands, jumped outside with their dogs after waking up to a sprinkling, while others enjoyed the show from their porch.

In Victoria, locals in the Central Highlands and the Dandenongs enjoyed another dusting, while others were stopped in their tracks.

Thick snow fell at Daylesford, Hepburn, Woodend, Creswick, the Dandenong Ranges and Mt Macedon on Sunday morning.

"There have been snowfalls at fairly low levels, which is a little more unusual," Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Dean Steward said on Sunday.

Areas as low as 400m had gotten snow dumps overnight and into Sunday morning.

"There's been a good layer of snow around," Steward said.

But the weather bureau can't be specific as it doesn't record snow depth.

The falls come as road closure and weather warnings remain in places across parts of the state, with "treacherous" conditions in the alpine regions.

The NSW SES had received some 1167 requests for help by 6pm on Saturday since the weather event began, with a lot of these spread over the south-eastern half of the state especially the Blue Mountains.

The Bureau of Meteorology predicted conditions would ease across the state on Sunday morning but would remain strong and gusty for the rest of the day.

Areas including Newcastle, Wollongong, Nowra, Armidale, Katoomba, Grafton and Goulburn may be affected.

A strong wind warning is in place for Sunday for Sydney's closed waters and the Byron and Coffs coast with gale warnings for the Macquarie, Hunter, Sydney, Illawarra, Batemans and Eden coast.

The strong westerly to southwesterly winds could provide a tailwind for the thousands of runners and walkers participating in Sydney's City2Surf run on Sunday.

The bureau said the last of a series of cold fronts sweeping across the state will clear early on Monday.

A low-pressure system in southern Australia and a high in WA will combine to create cold conditions for Queensland until Tuesday.
