UPDATED 11.30am: Bill in Lismore, south of Ballarat, sent us images of some impressive snowflakes. Strangely enough, Lismore is only 178m above sea level.
EARLIER: The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting snow down to 600m today (Friday) – and that means parts of Moorabool!
The Central region – including Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne – will also see possible thunderstorms during the morning and afternoon, as well as hail and winds up to 30km/h.
We are also facing a 95 per cent chance of showers, which should ease by this evening.
So where is it most likely to snow locally..?
Here’s a list of our highest peaks:
** Mt Hope, Blakeville 776m above sea level
** Mt Buninyong 754m
** Mt Blackwood 747m
** Mt Warrenheip 746m
** Leondards Hill 740m
** Clarkes Hill 718m
** Bald Hill, Blakeville 716m
** Black Hill, Gordon 696m
** Mt Steiglitz, Ballan 639m
** Mt Egerton 629m
** Hopwoods Hill, Mt Egerton 620m.
If you happen to see flakes falling out the sky, take a photo or video and send it to us via our Facebook page.
Please remember the 1.5m social distancing rule when you’re out and about – and all people over 12 must wear a face covering in public (with some exceptions) to help stop the spread of COVID19.
The region last saw snow on August 4 and August 22.
