Excuse the clickbait title, but during the recent snowfalls I noticed quite a few comments along the lines of "one in X year event", etc. I was wondering how people rated it in terms of significant snow events in South-East Aus in the last twenty years? We often get excited about big snowfalls when they happen, and tend to have short memories when it comes to previous events, of which we have had a few, particularly in the last 2 years. This one however was notable because; -It had large accumuations at high levels. The major resorts reported 1m new snow give or take over the 4 or so days. -Snow was reported at low levels in many areas. It seemed to tick most of the boxes required of such an event such as Ballarat, The Dandenongs, Orange, The Blue Mountains among others. A few flakes were even reported in Canberra and Bathurst, and the snow in Tumut was a real outlier. -It was widespread. Significant snow fell from throughout the higher areas of Victoria up to the Central Tablelands. -It was long. It seemed to just keep giving. Was indeed notable that many low level areas, such as the Dandenongs had snow on the ground in the morning 2 days in a row. Tassie seemed to miss out it seemed, and I didn't hear any reports of snow settling in Qld, but other than that it had a lot going for it. Sorry if there are any inaccuracies in the post. Fair to say that May 2000 is probably still the defending champ when it comes to the 2000s, which is a little ironic as it happened before the first winter of this century, but anyway... Will be interested to hear peoples thoughts.
