We are at 760 metres above sea level, so cold "upper atmosphere" weather patterns can produce localised snowfalls.
It did that today.
Snow was reported (on Facebook), from Goulburn, Katoomba, and Robertson, of course. ABC radio reported Alpine conditions at Lake George. Martin said he would not class it as real snow. (Fair enough). But he did see flakes falling, at Canberra.
|It suddenly got dark to the south of me.|
An ominous roll of clouds
|One of my Wattles, with dark sky as contrast.|
|A wall of weather coming up the valley.|
|Tiny hail Stones on the back deck|
|Hail stones blanketed the bare ground|
between my Camellias.
|And then it went "quiet".|
I know that snow is often silent when it starts to fall.
|Lucky shot on "close-up focus"|
with flash on, to illuminate snow flakes
|OK you can't go skiing on this, but its a genuine snow fall.|
