    Widespread snowfalls on ranges
    Saturday, 26 July 2003

    Widespread snowfalls fell in the early hours of this morning in the Upper Hunter on higher ground. The snow settled to elevations as low as 900m and the snow could be seen lying on the hills around Timor, Wingen and Moonan Flat. The Barrington Tops received between 5 to 8 cm of snow on the higher parts, while Hanging Rock (Nundle) had a cover of snow of approximately 15cm deep by this afternoon.

     

    Snow also fell on Thursday morning (24 July), but was not as widespread and as heavy as the snowfall of this morning. Since Thursday, the temperatures in the Hunter have been cool and near normal for this time of year. Proceeding a cold front on Wednesday night, temperatures were abnormally mild. The Upper Hunter received light showers on Thursday morning and this morning but overall the atmosphere was very dry as a result of the west north west air stream.
