Cold snap delivers snow to alps and windchill to Sydney

A cold snap across New South Wales has closed roads and dropped heavy snow in parts of the south and west with more than 30 centimetres falling on the ski fields since Friday and cold conditions predicted to continue all week.

The east coast is being hit by what meteorologists are calling an “Antarctic blob”, a powerful weather system bringing damaging winds and snow to elevated areas from Tasmania to northern NSW.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rebecca Boettger said Saturday is probably going to be the coldest day of the week for Sydney but temperatures at night will get colder.

“Across the state, the windchill factor is going to be quite significant this afternoon with temperatures likely to feel closer to ten degrees colder than it actually is,” Ms Boettger said.
