The last time it snowed in WA was in August 2013, also at Bluff Knoll.
More than 100 people climbed the trail at Bluff Knoll to see the snow, with some sleeping overnight in anticipation and others trekking up in the early hours of the morning.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) had predicted snow was possible over ranges, saying a front passing over the state’s south was bringing a trail of cold air behind it.
It said snow typically falls in WA about once per year, most commonly in the Stirling and Porongorup Ranges….
“Another cold front was due to bring some moderate rainfall to the South West and Lower West districts on Monday, forecasters said.
Bluff Knoll, 90 kilometres north of Albany, is the third highest peak in Western Australia.
The BoM said while snow in WA most often occurred over the state’s far south, there had been reports of it falling as far north as Wongan Hills (1923), Bencubbin (1956) and Coolgardie (1966).”
