Snow in Orange still lucky, but Bureau of Meteorology forecast is changing | Daily Central West



news, local news,

Orange’s first winter snowfall for 2021 could be a little less blanket and more torn placemat, if the Bureau of Meteorology‘s latest update for this week is anything to go by. The region will receive some snowfall on Wednesday following a winter explosion hitting the central plateaus, with the mercury expected to drop to a high of just six degrees Celsius. But no form of significant snowfall is in sight, not for the Orange region in any case. Mount Canobolas, located just under 1,400 meters away, is expected to receive snow Wednesday night and Thursday, but BoM radar says it will be uneven at best, meaning the rear is unlikely – city courses turn into a winter wonderland. The Oberon and Jenolan Caves areas seem to be the area’s best bet for heavy snowfall. Snow is forecast Wednesday and Thursday, then again Friday morning, for the upper eastern parts of the west-central. Closer to Orange, the cooler weather will be accompanied by heavy rain, with up to 25mm of drop on Wednesday and an additional 20mm on the maps on Thursday, with a 95% and 90% chance, respectively. Wednesday’s six-degree high will be followed by a high of just five on Thursday, followed by another high of six just on Friday. Monday’s predominantly sunny 13 degrees high will prove to be a welcome, albeit short-lived, reminder of the dry fall we just enjoyed ahead of the midweek frost.
