WATCH: Snow pushes into Qld as ski resorts celebrate

LATEST: AS QUEENSLAND shivers, further south the cold weather and recent snowfalls are turning ski resorts into winter wonderlands. 

Weekend falls have been topped up at Mount Perisher with conditions ideal for snow making in the Snowy Mountains.

In the Victorian alps Mount Buller is expecting more snow today.

It's welcome news for Queenslanders planning ski and snowboarding trips in the coming weeks.


EARLIER: THE Sunshine Coast has woken to a chill in the air this morning but it's nothing compared to the freeze factor in Queensland towns where residents locals snowfall overnight.

Falls were reported in Amiens, Stanthorpe, The Summit and Warwick.

And while temperatures are expected to remain cold in the Darling Downs and Granite Belt and widespread frosts are predicted there will be little moisture in the air so more snow is unlikely.

While only light snow and sleet fell in Queensland, residents across the border in New South Wales did get more of a dusting.

Weather enthusiast Jeff Higgins from Higgins Storm Chasing posted photos of falls in Guyra and Ben Lomond.

Temperatures on the Sunshine Coast are expected to remain cool and dry through the week, but nothing like the negative temperatures hitting Queensland's snow towns, according to Bureau of Meteorology forecasts.

Tuesday will be sunny with a maximum of 19C and light winds.

Wednesday will start with a brisk 7C, and the chance of a light frost in the hinterland before reaching a maximum of 20C. 

Thursday temperatures are predicted to range from a low of 6C to a high of 22C, while Friday is expected to bring a minimum of 10C and a maximum of 22C.
