Victoria was dusted with the most  widespread snow in more than 25 years, in what was also the coldest August day in almost six years on Friday.

Icy temperatures have seen freak snowfall just kilometres away from the beach in Lorne, into the Otways, and across the Macedon Ranges and Grampians.

UPDATE 1PM: A fallen tree limb has brought down powerlines in Havlin Street East.

The street is closed and traffic is being diverted from the area.
