VICTORIANS have been warned to brace for a springtime cold snap, with freak conditions to bring rain and snow.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicts temperatures will drop to the low teens tomorrow and Wednesday as a front blows in from southwestern Tasmania.
“We will have a couple of days where we will struggle to get above the low to mid teens and there will be snow down to 600 or 800 metres,” forecaster Peter Newham said.
He said heavy snow in early spring had been rare in the past 50 years.
