White Christmas (in July) in Canberra

By Kramer 17 July 2007 25

After a very cold evening last night, it looks like Canberra is about to receive some snow falls as a large cold front sweeps over south east Australia this evening. The Bureau of Meterology are predicting snow falls down to 500m (so that’s all of Canberra) this evening and early tomorrow, and a maximum of 5 degrees tomorrow. There’s also a little blurb on the ABC site.

Can’t wait to build a snowman in my backyard! Some guys at my work are planning to build a mini park in their backyard, and get out their snowboards!! Send in your photos, and we’ll put together a story as the images roll in.

What a beautiful day! I went outside wearing thermals and multiple layers, and within an hour had stripped down to shirt sleeves. Such a disappointment …

Barest dusting on Horse Park Drive near the Federal Highway was the only sign below the Brindys I could see this morning.

Ripped off. BOM have bombed this time.

Repeat after me: do NOT build up the kids’ expectations. Do NOT build up the kids’ expectations. Do NOT…

No reports of any snowfalls in suburban Canberra last night or this morning… Damn global warming!

does this mean we are not getting snow?? all the weather websites still say we will and the weather channels says so as well. i love the weather channel surely it wouldn’t lie to me. I feel so betrayed. maybe it is just running late.

too many people cruising around in hybrid cars and buying carbon credits is causing all the snow! because we all know how much difference that all makes (s.f.a)
