The central west has only seen a little snow in Oberon and Black Springs this year, but if the forecast can be believed that will change this week.

According to weatherzone.com.au there will be cold, wet and windy conditions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday while Friday and Saturday are expected to have white starts, with snow predicted for both days above 900 metres. 

Friday is forecast to be the beginning of a three-day cold snap in Cowra with maximum temperatures of between 12 and 14 degrees across the weekend to follow minimum marks of -4 during the night.

The forecast comes a week after the region’s first genuine snowfall of the season when several centimetres were dumped on Oberon last Monday night.

There’s not much rain on the radar, with nothing above five millimetres forecast in the next seven days.
