Ballarat may be at the tail end of winter but that hasn't stopped snow from falling in some parts of the region this morning.
Snow flurries have hit Gordon, Wallace and Springbank this morning during the frosty conditions, with the mercury barely rising above 2 degrees, while the 'feels like' temperature still sits below zero thanks to the wind chill factor.
The Bureau of Meteorology forecasted snow to fall as low as 400 metres this morning, meaning the Macedon Ranges may also receive a flurry of snowflakes, however snow will become less likely throughout the day as the temperature increases before snowfall will rise to 1100m by this evening.
Drivers are being reminded to drive to the cool conditions this morning, have their headlights turned on, and keep an eye out for any possible black ice forming.
