THE weather-watchers tipped a very wintry weekend for the New England and they weren't wrong.
There were reports of a decent dusting of snow in the hills at Hanging Rock near Nundle on Saturday morning.
While the hills were briefly painted white, it only spelt for a relatively brisk morning in Tamworth where the mercury struggled to climb past four degrees by 9am.
Meanwhile, the windchill in Armidale gave the air a freezing feel of -4.5 degrees at times.
Earlier in the week, meteorologists predicted Sunday would be even cooler again.
Two cold fronts in the space of three days are responsible for sending cold winds across south-eastern and central Australia, leading to the early-season cold snap.
The second front was expected to deliver snow to the ranges in Victoria, ACT and NSW, potentially as far north as the NSW central and northern ranges.
