Cold weather arrives

A cold snap has swept across South Eastern Australia over the past week, bringing significantly lower than average temperatures to the Lachlan Shire and heavy snowfall to regions of the state above 800 metres.
Last Wednesday, Condobolin recorded a maximum of 13, which is seven degrees below the May average.
Tom Saunders, meteorologist at The Weather Channel, said the cold temperatures were due to Antarctic southern winds affecting the region.
“We’ve seen the heaviest May snow falls in the Central West since 2000,” he said.
“Orange, Oberon, Lithgow, Katoomba and pretty much everywhere else above 800 metres has received some snow.
Many Lachlan Shire residents woke to frost on Monday and Tuesday morning, with conditions set to become warmer throughout the week.
For Condobolin, temperatures should increase to a maximum of 23 this Saturday with a minimum of ten until once again falling to just above freezing on Tuesday.
