Winter blast to hit NSW, bringing wind, snow and hail

A cold front will sweep across NSW this week, bringing back the frost of winter with gale-force winds, hail and snow.

Temperatures are expected to plunge by up to 10 degrees Celsius on Monday night and Tuesday, before easing on Wednesday.

Sydney has enjoyed a warm start to spring with the city reaching a maximum of 24C on Monday.

Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) David Wilke said the state would be hit by winter-like temperatures.

“We are getting throttled back into temperatures that are a bit more like winter”, he said.

“You could see some isolated damage to properties.”

Greater Sydney and the Hunter region are expected to be doused in widespread showers and thunderstorms this week.

Winds of up to 50 kilometres an hour could fell trees and damage electricity cables, Mr Wilkie said, but coastal towns would be hit the hardest. 

Surf Life Saving NSW warned high tides were expected to be between 1.5 and 1.7 metres, peaking at 3.5m overnight. 

Director Joel Wiseman urged beach goers to be cautious. 

“School holidays have started across the state, and we anticipate an increase in the number of people visiting our coastline,” he said.

“Given the conditions we are expecting, I would strongly urge people to understand their limitations and avoid taking unnecessary risks in the water.”

Snow will fall in areas that don’t usually get it in areas just 600m above water level, such as Cooma in the state’s south, but mostly along ranges in the state’s tablelands stretching towards the Queensland border, from the likes of Bathurst to Armidale and Glen Innes.

“The alps are going to see probably a number of centimetres of snow through the course of the event,” Mr Wilke said. 

“But outside of the alps, it’s more likely to be a dusting.”

The rain and snowfall could lead to ice forming on roads, he said.

“Just generally keep up to date with forecasts and warnings so you’re not heading into an area that’s potentially dangerous,” Mr Wilke said. 

He said people could also clear up loose items around their backyard in preparation.
