No more snow on the horizon for Lithgow

HIGH country areas across the region woke up to a white-out on Wednesday morning following overnight snowfalls.

As well as a flurry for Lithgow, there were reports of snow in Oberon, Black Springs and Sunny Corner as another wintry blast passed through the region.

Unfortunately more snow is not on the horizon for Lithgow despite cold morning temperatures forecast over the next several days.

A minimum temperature of 1 degree was forecast on Friday and lows of -2 and -3 degrees were predicted for Sunday and Monday respectively.

However senior meteorologist at Weatherzone Jacob Cronje said precipitation levels would be too low to produce snow.

“There’s not enough moisture for snow to form but there’s certainly going to be frosts on the ground,” he said.

Mr Cronje pointed to very windy conditions and a dry change coming through the region on the weekend possibly leading to an increased fire risk similar to Tuesday this week.

“Windy conditions are very conducive to fire even more so than it being dry.

“With those windy conditions on Saturday, i would not be surprised if fire dangers are again elevated at least.”

Residents should see day time temperatures return to season averages in the high teens from Monday.
