Snow is predicted to fall near Lithgow and Orange and in and around Oberon on Saturday evening, with even more snow forecast on Sunday morning.

However, all snow forecast is set to fall right around Bathurst.

Snow is forecast to fall in Lithgow, Orange, Blayney, Oberon from early Sunday morning, with snow predicted to fall throughout the day in higher areas around Black Springs and Jenolan Caves.

The mercury is only set to reach a high of six in Bathurst on Sunday and hitting a low of -1, while Saturday will be slightly warmer, hitting a high of nine degrees. 

Bathurst Regional Council took to its Facebook page to remind motorists to take care when driving at night, dawn or tusk, when surface moisture and dew can freeze into black ice.
