The start of summer may be just days away, but snow has been forecast to return to parts of the ACT on Tuesday.
The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast falls of up to several centimetres in areas above 1500 metres near Mount Ginini on Tuesday evening.
The forecast comes as Canberra is set to receive a dust storm and potential smoke haze that could be as bad as conditions seen on the weekend.
Meteorologist Helen Kirkup said the conditions were driven by a cold front sweeping across large parts of NSW.
"It will be coming through Canberra late on Tuesday," Ms Kirkup said.
"There's a fair bit of cold air behind the front, and we're looking at the chance of a thunderstorm in large areas of NSW including the ACT."
The bureau says snow is also forecast for Thredbo and Perisher, along with surrounding areas in the Snowy Mountains.
Ms Kirkup said while the conditions bringing snow were rare for this time of year, it wasn't out of the ordinary.
"It doesn't happen often but you do sometimes see snow in November," she said.
"In terms of amounts, it won't be much, but we might see a few centimetres at most."
The strong winds driving the cold front could also bring a dust storm to Canberra.
Thick clouds of dust were seen over the capital on Friday, driven by swirling winds.
Ms Kirkup said it was still too early to tell how severe the dust storm could be on Tuesday, but conditions could be similar to last week.
"How much dust gets over the Great Dividing Range is always the question, but the ingredients for the dust storm are definitely there," she said.
"There are very strong winds ahead of the front and there's a good chance they'll be strong enough to pick up dust out in western NSW and even South Australia."
The dust storm is expected to hit during the afternoon and into the evening on Tuesday.
Smoke haze has also been forecast for the area for Tuesday as a result of several large bushfires still burning across NSW.
The bureau says there is an 80 per cent chance of rain, with up to 15 millimetres predicted.
Winds of up to 45km/h are expected in the morning before easing.
Tuesday is expected to reach a top of 28 degrees, with sunny days to return on Wednesday with a high of 27, before reaching into the 30s on Thursday.
