Went up to the OP today, no snow falling but plenty of it around and there was sunshine too which looked really nice with the snow.

EddyG,It looks like you are getting some moderate to heavy showers clipping the coast in your area and further north at the moment,I wish we could get a good drop inland here south of Cessnock.

Good stuff WR, thanks for posting. I see from the GPS coordinates on Flickr that's Shooter's Hill.

Those showers are clipping Sydney's East now.

Sydney.com sees more or less average temps for the next couple of weeks: Sydney 15 day forecast

Thanks everyone.

Homer- Yeah I felt very lucky, especially given that the sun came out.

Steve- It actually isn't at "the" Shooters Hill on top of the hill, but actually just east on the main road about 1250m ASL. I didn't realise I was so close to Shooters Hill until I went home and looked at Google Earth with the coordinates of my photos.

I am just back in Sydney after a weekend away out Oberon way.

Snow on the ground over quite a wide area early on, the most snow I seen on the ground was not far from Hampton on the way towards Jenolan just after the Oberon turn off, the road up there was white over, no tarmac to be seen and the trees white over with wind blown snow, cleared when dropping down towards Jenolan Caves, good snow again after the climb back out of Jenolan towards Edith.

Snow around the Black Springs area also and went for a bit of a walk around there which was really nice.

Had a snow ball fight with my son and built a small snow man.

Good frost in Oberon this morning, good weekend away.

I went up Mt Canobolas yesterday and there was still snow settled on the southern side up near the top.

Also snow under any shaded spot - eg trees.

Plenty of people up there enjoying a bit of snow.
