It's great to read all these snow reports, especially in May!

Would this be comparable to the cold outbreak of late May 2000?

Since i would have been 2 year old back in 2000 i wouldn't know much. But a quick google search i found an article that details the event. Looks to be much more powerful than this event. With snow even falling down to Springwood which is actually bonkers.

I remember the 2000 event when it passed over Sydney on Saturday afternoon. GF and myself just got back from shopping and the clouds had a much more threatening and chunkier look than today.

More memorable was the following Monday. Sunny day. Very windy. Temperature didn't get past 13.

IMPRESSIVE for end of May! Look how far south that trough/front is dragging the cold air up from.

Great to see the snow videos. That was unexpected.

No snow here of course. It's cold and windy, with the Sun coming out in the last half hour. It was an interesting sky a little while ago:

Definitely still a long way short of the 2000 event.

Canberra's maximum to date today is 9.1, which if it holds will be the coldest May day since 2000 - but well above the 4.3 which happened that day (which is actually one of the two coldest days in any month of the last 50 years).

In the 2000 event snow fell to ~250m in northeast Victoria.

Thanks for the responses; some very interesting comparisons there between May 2000 and this event. That 4.3 in Canberra is extraordinary for the time of year.

Looks like we'll be extending this thread for some time maybe even the 5th of June. EC wants a cold pool to form throwing up an Retrograding ECL up the coast.
Dumping snow on the Ranges all the way up to Oberon in a straight line. With 38.8 cms on Shooters Hill. Even snow in Canberra. Bullish to say the least.
Obviously not buying it but has been consistent for 2 runs in a row.

Hey I can confirm that it didn't snow so you didn't miss out.

Yeah it was horrible!! Got a few rain bands too which I didn't expect.

Well August has blessed us early with pleasant 80+ km/h gusts. Can't wait for a few more days of this rubbish. At least Sydney only gets the strong winds (which usually aren't that strong anyway) for a day or so and then it drops.

I was quite surprised while having lunch at the Fairmont Resort in Leura today when it snowed at several points. The longest was for about 10 minutes' duration and it was quite heavy for several mins. No settling though - well, just a little on the car. Car thermometer said 3 degrees when I left at about 2pm - which again, was quite a surprise!
