Light snow south of Bathurst

THERE’S been a light dusting of snow – or sago or sleet, depending on who received it – on the high country south of Bathurst.

It follows some snowflakes received in Oberon last Saturday that didn’t settle in the town.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting Bathurst to range from -4 to 12 degrees on Saturday and -6 to 11 degrees on Sunday.

If Bathurst gets down to -6, it will be the city’s coldest day in a year.

A second -6 start for Bathurst is forecast for Monday.
