A blustery and icy weekend is predicted, with snow forecast to fall above 600m across the region.
The Bureau of Meteorology's Helen Kirkupwarned significant snowfall and potentially damaging winds were expected across the alpine region with blizzard like conditions and low visibility likely.
She said snow could fall above 600m in NSW's south west, with towns like Tumbarumba expected to receive a dusting.
Temperatures are expected to be significantly below average across Victoria, while a wind chill factor from strong winds in the Snowy Mountains and South West Slopes will make the region's low temperatures feel even colder.
