Snow in Sydney last week

I must be a weather God like Al. It snowed in Sydney last week when I was there.

Don't let them tell you it was "soft hail", it was snow. Friends saw flurries of the stuff. I went outside after the storm passed (and it was a large one, with thunder and lightning), to see off a friend and thought I was going to freeze.
[Bureau of Meteorology Senior Forecaster] Mr Zmijewski doubted the 1836 snow report, saying weather observers of the era lacked the expertise of today. 
I doubt anything's changed in the training and expertise of weather forecasters over the past 200 years.
