All ACT sports grounds will remain closed until Wednesday next week (26 August) due to the latest weather predictions from the Bureau of Meteorology.

ACT Sport and Recreation made the announcement this afternoon on the back of a forecast for Saturday of showers, possibly a thunderstorm in the late morning and afternoon, and snow falling above 600 metres.

On Sunday, the Bureau has forecast a 70 per cent chance of showers, most likely in the morning and afternoon. There is also a chance of a thunderstorm in the late morning and afternoon.

The Brindabellas are expected to see plenty of snow on Saturday that may extend to parts of Canberra, also bringing an extra wind chill factor.

The ACT Government will reassess the turf sports grounds on Tuesday next week to ensure they are protected from further damage.
