UP TO AN INCH OF SNOW blanketed the Gove Peninsula for the first time in recorded history today.
Tracks to communities were hit by the wave of snow which swept across the North East of the region from Wednesday evening.
“No roads are closed at this stage, but yes folks, snow has fallen in Nhulunbuy. Whether it’s a freak occurrence, global warming or climate change, we’re not sure.”
Nhulunbuy Police issued a yellow ‘Be Aware’ warning for much of the region, which was due to expire mid-morning on Friday.
More to come.
