Snow settles across the region

Motorists are being warned to travel safely this morning, after a heavy blanket of snow fell overnight, in Oberon, Orange and the Blue Mountains.
 

The O’Connell Rd, between Bathurst and Oberon is affected by snow in both directions, while snow is affecting traffic on the Great Western Highway around the Blackheath area.

The Bureau of Meteorology forecast snow down to 700 metres overnight, with the heaviest falls reported in Oberon and it’s surrounds.

However good news comes at the start of the weekend, with no more snow expected to fall in the area today.

For anyone concerned about the road conditions, live traffic updates are available from the RTA, you can visit their website at livetraffic.nsw.gov.au, or call 132 702.
