Moorabool has been blanketed in a relatively thick layer of snow this afternoon – with falls reported across a wide area stretching from Myrniong to Warrenheip and Lal Lal.

Flakes began to fall over Ballan just after 2pm, with falls lasting for about 25 minutes and the temperature dropping to 2 deg C.

In Yendon it was closer to 90 minutes – with the chance for kids on school holidays to make some impressive snowmen.

Gordon’s snow was thicker again – with flurries flying horizontally and cars forced to pull over in poor visibility. The temperture there plummeted to 1 deg C.

One roadside snowman on the edge of Ballarat was at least 1m high – and was still there hours after the snow had stopped falling.

In Mt Wallace, locals reported the best snow in several years.

Grand old dame ‘Jess’ has seen a few snowfalls in her time. At 36, she is believed to be one of the oldest horses in the region and is still going strong.
