After a morning bout of snow across Victoria's central and south-east districts, there could be snowy mountaintops to the north and west of Melbourne on the way this afternoon.

With Melbourne hitting 11.9 degrees on Friday afternoon, it is now the equal-coldest late spring day since September 2002.

Melbourne's dams are benefiting from the spring rain, with Melbourne Water storage now at 72.2 per cent full, the first time to hit that level since December 2016.

India digs deep to boost defences on crucial China frontier

  India digs deep to boost defences on crucial China frontier A tunnel nearing completion in the Indian Himalayas will slash by hours the time it takes troops to reach the Chinese border, part of an infrastructure blitz by New Delhi that is gathering pace since a bloody border clash. The nuclear-armed Asian giants blame each other for a brutal high-altitude battle in June that left 20 Indian soldiers dead and an unspecified number of Chinese casualties. Both have sent massive troop reinforcements, but India has also stepped up its activities behind the frontlines -- belatedly so, analysts say.

The water storage nudged over 70 per cent in late August this year, for the first time since October 2017. Melbourne Water's largest dam, the Thomson Dam in West Gippsland, received more than 11 millimetres of rain on Friday morning and is now 69.6 per cent full.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Keris Arndt said that snow had been sighted across Victoria's south-west, including Lake Bolac, as well as in the Macedon Ranges and in Ballarat.

The majority of snow reported in the region fell at localities 600 metres above sea level, but lower towns like Lismore also reported flurries on Friday morning.

"There is more to come, that cold air is still moving across the state," Mr Arndt said.

"We'll see that area of rain and snow move over the central and eastern districts this afternoon. In Melbourne, we're likely to see showers again from mid afternoon, say 2pm or 3pm at the earliest, and push through until the evening."

A thin blanket of snow fell over New York City overnight. A persistent rain and a mid-April cold snap conspired to drop a light dusting of snow on the city The snow continued into early Wednesday, but Pydynowski assured weather-weary New Yorkers it was too warm for any significant accumulation.

With thunderstorms and hail possible across much of the state, Melbourne's top temperature isn't expected to get above 12 degrees, though it will feel "significantly colder with the wind chill".

"We could see more snow about the hills to the north and east as showers go through. Places like Mount Macedon and peaks like Mount Dandenong could potentially see some flurries," Mr Arndt said.

But for those hoping to take advantage of relaxed social catch-up rules - with Premier Daniel Andrews expected to announce on Sunday that public gatherings of up to five people from different households will be allowed - there is some warmer weather on the way.

By Monday, Melbourne can expect a top of 15 degrees with no rain, while Tuesday could hit a maximum of 20 degrees.

"It will be starting to return to more spring-like conditions later into the weekend, Monday and Tuesday, and by further into the week it will be much milder and there will be not much in the way of shower activity," Mr Ardnt said.
