Cold snap set to continue

THERE'S going to be a small wait until the current cold mornings come to an end.

The Bureau of Meteorology is alerting residents and farmers to prepare for a second burst of cold, snowy weather with another surge of cold air that will move up over the NSW ranges on Thursday night.

"In places like Guyra, Armidale and the Barrington Tops it will be the second snow fall within a week," the Bureau of Meteorology's NSW regional director, Barry Hanstrum said.

Sheep graziers are warned that cold temperatures, showers and southwesterly winds are expected during Thursday and Friday. These conditions bring a high risk of losses of exposed lambs and sheep.

Last night's minimum temperature in Coffs Harbour was 2.6°C but the mercury plummeted down to 1.5°C and 1.1°C respectively on Monday and Tuesday nights. 

It's not just the cold temperatures that will be an issue. There's also the wind.

A gale force wind warning for the entire NSW coast has been issued for Friday.
