Snow predicted for Tasmania's Central Plateau Lakes on Wednesday

After a spate of hot, dry days in Tasmania, snow has been predicted for the Central Plateau Lakes on Wednesday. 

The Bureau of Meterology is predicting a cold front will move over southern Tasmania on Wednesday morning. 

Rain has been predicted in the west, south and east. The bureau said snow was possible above 900 metres in the Central Highlands on Wednesday morning. 

The Great Lake Hotel shared pictures and videos of white flakes falling from the sky about 6.30am on Wednesday. 

The cooler weather would continue into Thursday, with winds expected to turn southerly before a ridge moves over Tasmania.

Rain was predicted for the west, south and east on Thursday, but fine in the north. 

Best to pack an umbrella if you’re planning to attend Festivale on Friday or Saturday - rain is predicted for both days, with a maximum of 24 degrees on Friday and 25 degrees on Saturday. 

The weather will improve slightly on Sunday, with a slight chance of rain, light winds and a maximum of 25 degrees predicted.
