Senior forecaster Miriam Bradbury said the city reached a maximum of 5.8°C just after 4:00pm, after dropping to freezing during the middle of the day.

“It dropped in temperature to about 0 degrees at 1.30pm,” Ms Bradbury said.

At Tanybryn in the Otway Ranges Matthew Kolevski said the snow was more than 4 cm deep.

“It was unbelievable,” he said.
“The temperature dropped in just a few minutes. It was sleet and then transformed into these massive flakes of snow.”
Mr Kolevski owned a farm in the region for more than 30 years and had never seen such large snowflakes.

“The [cattle] this morning were just persistently mooing,” he said.
“In cold weather, like us when we get hungry, they get hungry.”

Don`t worry there is no significant man- made global warming. The global warming scare is not driven by science but driven by politics. Al Gore and the UN are dead wrong on climate fears. The IPCC process is a perversion of science.
