They may become less frequent and slightly less cold when they do occur, but we still expect winter cold snaps like this one to remain a feature of a warmer climate. Projections of future snowfall conditions across southeast Australia indicate that while extreme cold events such as last weekend may still occur, it may be harder for snow to stick around once on the ground, with near-surface temperatures expected to increase significantly. The snow was welcomed by skiers and snowboarders alike, with over a metre of snow at the major resorts, but was less fun for people travelling on icy roads across the southeast.

Some of the most memorable widespread events of the past include those of , when 60 centimetres fell in Bathurst; , when snow fell as far north as the ranges west of Mackay; and , when most of the Great Dividing Range was covered as far north as southern Queensland. Among the lowest places where snow settled were Tumut New South Wales and Maldon Victoria , both at about metres elevation. This kind of weather setup where we get sustained southerlies and cold fronts over several days is unusual but by no means unprecedented.
