Record cold in Australia
______________________________



18 Aug 08 – It has been the coldest start to August in 13 years, bringing heavy snowfalls in the ski fields and record low temperatures elsewhere.

Temperatures in July and August have been colder than average, setting records across NSW.

"Between August 7 and 12, places like Glen Innes have broken temperature records that had stood for more than 40 years," a spokeswoman from the Bureau of Meteorology said.

Perisher Blue's general manager, Gary Grant, said it was the best snow season in years. "People out there have been saying they just don't see snow like this in Australia," Mr Grant said.

He said the natural snow depth was 175 cm and more than 280 cm had fallen since the season began in June.
