Due to to limited amount of snow expected to settle on the ground long drives down to see the snow may not be worthwhile so consider this before heading off.
No snow is expected to fall further North at places like Tenterfield / Mt Mackenzie, Stanthorpe or areas further North… cold enough but no moisture.
