The ACT has been lashed by strong winds, as winter-like conditions return to Canberra just weeks from the start of summer.
Gusts of more than 60km/h have been recorded across the capital on Thursday and Friday.
Meanwhile, parts of the ACT above 1000 metres could see a light dusting of snow.
Jordan Notara, a meteorologist from the Bureau of Meteorology, said the strong winds were likely to continue into the weekend
"The windiness is going to stick around into Saturday," Mr Notara said.
"We're going to see winds of between 35 and 45km/h, but there'll be a lull in the winds as we move towards Sunday."
The windy and cold conditions have been caused by a large cold front moving across the area, bringing with it severe westerly winds.
Maximum wind gusts of 63km/h were recorded on Thursday, while a gust of 67km/h was came through about 10.30am on Friday.
The strong winds across Canberra have prompted multiple call outs for emergency services.
An ACT Emergency Services Agency spokeswoman said fire and rescue and SES crews had responded to 12 jobs due to the strong winds since 8am on Wednesday.
The spokeswoman said the majority of jobs were for fallen trees.
A severe weather warning has been issued for areas surrounding Canberra, including the southern tablelands near Goulburn and Yass along with the Illawarra.
This weekend will also see the mercury plummet to winter-like temperatures.
Saturday's minimum is expected to be just 2 degrees, with a light early frost predicted.
The cold conditions has also seen snow return to parts of the Snowy Mountains.
Alpine areas in southern NSW have been forecast to receive snow on Friday, along with parts of the Brindabellas in the ACT.
"We may seem some very light snow for some lucky people who are out at the right time, but mostly it will be contained to higher parts of the ACT," Mr Notara said.
A dusting of snow was also seen in parts of Mount Hotham on Friday morning, more than one month after the official end of the snow season.
A shower or two is expected later in the day on Friday, with a top of 18 degrees expected.
Mr Notara said while the temperatures will increase early next week due to a high pressure system, there was the potential for more strong winds to follow around Tuesday.
