Canberra could wake to a dusting of snow this week, as meteorologists forecast a very cold snap and gusty winds.
A cool change is expected, with temperatures expected to drop down to -1 degree on Wednesday.
"It is possible that we may see snow in places like Goulburn and parts of the Central Tablelands, parts of the hills in Canberra, and then possibly stretching out to towns such as Armidale and Glen Innes," the Bureau of Meteorology's Jackson Browne said.
"The front is pretty mobile, so it blows off the fast north-eastern parts of NSW during the course of Wednesday."
