Snow is falling in western Victoria as a cold snap sweeps the state.

3AW listener Grant says it’s snowing “heavily” in the Otway Ranges, between Apollo Bay and Colac.

Another listener, Jane, says it’s also snowing in Dunkeld.

We’re also hearing it’s snowing in Mortlake, Berringa, Camperdown, Meredith and Beaufort.

Meredith woman, Kerry, said it’s the heaviest snow she’s seen in the town in 20 years.

“I’ve never seen it floating down like this. It’s normally sleet, this is actual snow,” she told Dee Dee.
