Descriptions of significant weather events appear here when reliable information is available and time permits. Information comes from many sources, and updates may be made well after the event! For weather news as it happens, your best sources are ABC News and the breaking weather forum on Weatherzone.

The graphics and statistical information on this page fill gradually as they become available. The page is updated every 30 minutes at about 15 and 45 minutes past the hour.

  • 0800 Cold air all in the wrong places definitely further west then progged.
  • 1230 Yep no settled snow anywhere to be seen along the 'OP'. Had a few light snow showers as well as some sleet showers on the way home today but nothing close to settling - temp didn't drop below 2c on the car.
  • 1243 After dropping Phil and Shane off at Blackheath (they left the car there overnight) it seems they have gone back to Shooters Hill - Reporting heavy snow showers atm with snow left over from last night.... We would have been only 100m lower or so where we camped and no snow on the ground there, interesting.
  • 1335 NatiI went out this morning, went in via Jenolan Caves, there was sleet on the way into Jenolan Caves at and on the other side of JC, it started snowing nice big flakes above 1300mtrs, and there was some snow settled around the entrance to Kangraboyd National
  • 1400 There was settled snow in patches around Shooters Hill and Gurnang this morning (early) but I'd say it was from Wednesday, not overnight. Apparently there was a little settled snow between here and Golspie (to the NW) early Thursday.
  • 1442 Taree: nice little storm just swooped in here, bringing heavy hard and small hail, came out of nowhere really
  • 1509 Blackheath: Quite intense sleet falling here now. Some nice big snow flakes falling at times but its very soggy stuff.
  • 1834 Hey all some good snowfalls up at black mountain near Guyra today....it snowed continuously for the four hours I was there this afternoon...We also had some light settling falls in the higher parts of Armidale
