Get ready to rug up Canberra, it's going to be a wet and windy weekend with temperatures unlikely to crack double figures at any point, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
Mt Ainslie, Black Mountain and Mt Majura are even expected to get a dusting of snow on Friday night, as forecasters predict snow fall from about 800 metres above sea level.
A severe weather warning across the region has also been expanded for the rest of Friday to include Canberra, with the whole of the ACT at risk of damaging winds along with gusty showers.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Katarina Kovacevic said Canberrans were in for a windy night on Friday as a cold front moved through.
Winds are predicted to reach as high as 55 kilometres per hour on Friday afternoon and lessening to 40 kilometres per hour overnight.
"[Saturday] will be windy but not as windy as Friday night," Ms Kovacevic said.
"It's going to be fresh and gusty."
Another cold front moving through will bring more high winds to the area on Sunday, she said.
"Daytime temperatures are going to be pretty cold [all weekend], we're not likely to crack double digits," Ms Kovacevic said.
"It looks like the wind chill will feel as much as 10 degrees cooler than what the temperature actually is.
"So it probably won't feel much warmer than zero for the whole of the weekend."
Ms Kovacevic said it was predicted that snow would fall on Friday night from about 800 metres above sea level.
That means snow is expected to be visible on the Brindabellas and there could even be a dusting of snow on Mt Ainslie, Black Mountain and Mt Majura.
Canberra can expect showers on Saturday morning but rain should be easing into the afternoon. Between 1 and 3 millimetres was predicted for the capital.
The cold weather and the school holidays have combined to see people flocking to the snowfields.
Perisher recorded between 20 and 30 centimetres of snow on Thursday and the same was expected again on Friday, with the possibility of 50 centimetres falling.
There was also a severe weather warning in place for Kosciuszko National Park and Ms Kovacevic warned that with the snow and winds the roads leading in and out of the snowfields could become dangerous.
She said there was a possibility for blizzard conditions and white outs.
NSW Police reminded motorists that fines of more than $300 could be dished out for not carrying or using snow chains on vehicles when required.
Certain roads in the ski fields including parts of Kosciuszko Road and Alpine Way require snow chains be carried in all two-wheel drive cars.
