Snow flurries in Oberon as weekend of warmth left behind

SNOW flurries have been seen in Oberon to complete a radical weather turnaround on the Central Tablelands.

After a warm Saturday and Sunday that brought well above average temperatures, a cool change moved through late on Sunday that has dropped the mercury significantly.

Oberon hit 16 degrees on Sunday, which is up on the long-term average for the month of 10 degrees, and Bathurst pushed past 20 degrees on Sunday, which is well up on the long-term average of 13 degrees for the month.

Oberon is only set to hit nine degrees on Monday, however, and Bathurst 10 degrees.

The Bureau of Meteorology says snow is possible on Monday in Orange, Blayney, Oberon and between Bathurst and Lithgow.
