21 Dec 10 - While the bitter freeze in Europe continues, Australia's usual hot and summery December weather was replaced by snow in parts of New South Wales and Victoria, after plunging temperatures and snow swept across the east of the country.

Australia normally experiences temperatures of 86F (30C) at this time of year,

"About 30cm of snow fell at Perisher in NSW yesterday, while Victoria's Mount Hotham received a 10cm dusting on Sunday.

"Charlotte's Pass in the NSW Snowy Mountains also received a 10cm sprinkling of snow, prompting would-be bushwalkers to don clothing more suitable for skiing.

"It was surprising to see the Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel blanketed with snow at this time of year, resort manager Michelle Lovius told The Australian yesterday.

"When you walk in it, it's up past your ankles and it's just started snowing heavily again.

"Sydney yesterday saw unseasonably low temperatures of just 13C. The western suburb of Horsley Park recorded 9.8C and the Blue Mountains dropped to -2C.

Extreme weather in other parts of the country caused the worst flooding in 50 years.
