Snow predicted down to 600m at Lithgow on Sunday

Snow could fall down to 600m on Sunday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, which means Lithgow residents have the right to get excited. 

The excitement may be tempered by the fact the temperature on Sunday is not expected to rise above 5 degrees. 

Snow down to 1000m could occur on Saturday, with a maximum temperature expected to reach 8 degrees. 

Snow is forecast for the Central West more widely over the weekend, with falls predicted for Orange, Blayney and Oberon as well as Lithgow.
