Sorry snow for the Southern Highlands I mean.At Bellambi? That would be so nice to see. I really hate that it never snows down to sea level in Australia. I wish we were more like other countries where even the beach resorts get an occasional dump in the right conditions.
Has it ever snowed in Sydney CBD or Wollongong?
Will be surprised if that happens out this way to be honest. Fog is forecast for the morning out west which normally keeps a lid on temps until at least 10am. Fingers crossed but it does look pretty likely to stay single digits until 9am.Orange Airport (elev. 949 metres) can be viewed live through this webcam: https://www.orange.skycam.net.au/
Sydney has “lost” the opportunity for a new June record low maximum after it “soared” to 10.3° earlier this afternoon. It is now back to 9.4°.
Meanwhile Penrith (25 years of record) is still tracking well below its all time record low max for any month (8.3° vs 11.2°). Bankstown is equaling its all time low max (9.6°, 52 years of record).
What normally happens on days like today (stays very cold during the day) is that the cold air doesn’t stick around for too long, soon being replaced by an injection of warmer air, often from the SE. The record then shows an unremarkable maximum like 14 or 15. We’ll see at 9:00.

I probably just jinxed it so you can all blame me when it shoots up to 14c by 8:30am and ruins the fun
Montague Island has nudged up to 14C with the warm wrap-around. Fascinating to watch
Terrey Hills only reached a maximun of 8.5.It looks like most of yesterday's low maxima have survived the 9:00 reset, including Sydney OH (10.4°), Bankstown (9.6°), Penrith and Richmond (low 8s from memory).
Sydney - coldest day since 1984
Bankstown - equal all time record (53 years)
Penrith - smashed old all-time record.
Richmond - record for current site (27 years). Coldest max for old and new sites since 1957 (when 7.6°).
Best/nicest pub I've been to in NSW... slightly biased as its only 10 mins down the road
