Snow falls on the Central Tablelands | video, photos

Low temperatures have brought the first decent snowfall of the season to the Central Tablelands. 

Oberon received a light dusting of white flakes on Monday morning

At 1100 metres above sea level, Oberon regularly experiences below zero temperatures during winter with daytime temperatures in the single figures.

Snow showers carpeted the town early on Monday but were expected to clear during the day with temperatures forecast to rise to a top of 7 degrees.

The NSW Alpine region experienced the biggest natural snow dump of the season due to a low pressure system that is moving across the state.

"It is the biggest snow event of the season so far," Weatherzone senior meteorologist Jacobus Cronje said.

"It is the best natural snowfall on the Alps, which is good news for skiers."

The Bureau of Meterology says a cold front is approaching the Central Tablelands from the southwest.

“This front will affect western parts of the state during Sunday, extending through to the east early Monday accompanied by vigorous winds in most areas,” the bureau states.

“Following this, a high will strengthen over southeast Australia, promoting stable weather conditions during the middle part of the new week.”
