    A snowy dusting in Victoria's summer

    Most people consider summer a time to wear shorts and thongs wherever one pleases, with little thought of ski jackets or snowboards. However Victoria's Mount Baw Baw saw a light dusting of snow, and it's already two weeks into summer.

    A cold front crossed the nation's southeast during Thursday, bringing gusty winds and some good falls to southern Victoria.

    Mount Baw Baw was one of the many locations to receive these falls, 31 millimetres in fact. Part of this was snow, around five centimetres, not enough to rejuvenate the ski season, but enough to create an excited buzz.

    Melbourne itself didn't miss out. The city recorded 10 millimetres, now making a total (so far) of 30 millimetres.
