    First snow for the season
    Saturday, 29 June 2002

    The Barrington Tops received its first cover of snow for the season in the last 24 hours. A significant cold front that brought snow to the Southern and Central Tablelands hit the Hunter Region yesterday morning. Light snowfalls fell off and on for the next 24 hours leaving 2 - 5 cm cover on the ground.

    Due to the lack of moisture, snowfalls were not that heavy. Dew point temperatures remained well below 0C across the region. However, the western side of the ranges had a different story with slightly higher dew points. The higher moisture in the western parts resulted in snowfalls and isolated showers across the Central Tablelands. The Hunter was effected by the drying W'ly winds, which are typical for this time of year.
