    Wet and windy conditions bring snow
    Saturday, 3 June 2006

    A convective pocket of cold air that moved through eastern New South Wales brought cold, windy and showery conditions last night for a large area of the Hunter Region. At around 7:30pm, the cold moist air hit the southern parts of the Hunter. This cold air did not hit the Upper Hunter until around midnight.

    Due to the cold nature of the passing air mass, unexpected snow fell on the plateau of the Barrington Tops between 11pm to 2am last night with snow depths generally between 5 to 7.5cm in the highest elevations. The snow was only confined to the higher elevations of the Barrington Tops and there were no reports of low level snowfalls. Light showers were observed across the Lower and Upper Hunter overnight.
