Record cold and record Spring snowfall … Up to 250 cm (more than 8 ft!) in some areas, which is massive for Spring.
“Victoria has been blanketed in thick snowfall, including coastal areas like Lorne,” says The Daily Mail.
“Falls Creek, Hunters Hill and Thredbo Village had coldest September days ever.
“Towns at sea level turned white with alpine areas receiving up to 30 cm (12 inches) and the temperature dropping to as low as -7.5 degrees.
“The cold snap caught out two men who found themselves stuck in their vehicle high in the alps for three days before being rescued by the Victorian SES.”
Record cold and record snowfall, and they call it a ‘cold snap?’
