| The evening
of the 15th of July saw a substantial snowfall event on the Nandewar Range which
was topped up by overnight snow and several further snow events through the day
on the 16th. This period was the first significant snow event since our Mount
Kaputar Snow Camera was installed in late June and the first snow event to
coincide with school holidays for several years.
The period also saw snow fall in other areas of the north-west, most notably at Ben Lomond.
