A rare cold snap has delivered September snow to Mount Macedon, and more falls have been forecast.
The Bureau of Meteorology said there was snow on Friday morning in low-lying parts of western Victoria, including Lismore and Lake Bolac.
"Last night there was a rain band that went through and there was a little bit of snow following that about the Mount Macedon area," the bureau's Keris Arndt said.
"We are expecting that area of really cold air down in the south-west to progress eastward as the day progresses."
Expect some spring SNOW in areas as as low as 600-700 metres today, which may include the Grampians, Macedon Ranges and Dandenongs. ❄️🌨— VICSES News (@vicsesnews) September 24, 2020
