A cold snap moving through the Canberra region brought strong winds and plenty of rain to the Nation’s Capital over the past weekend.

Temperatures struggled to reach the mid-teens with the cooler weather expected into the week, overnight temperatures are tipped to reach freezing on Monday.

If the mercury reaches zero degrees on Monday night, it will mark Canberra’s coldest November night in half a decade.

Up in the ski fields, cooler temps saw heavy snowfall return while wind gusts of more than 100kms/h were recorded overnight.

In Canberra, gusts of up to 61km/h have been recorded on Monday morning.

The gusty winds also saw a number of trees downed across the city over the weekend, ACT SES crews were called out to more than 35 calls for help since late on Sunday alone.

Conditions in the ACT are expected to warm gradually in the week ahead before the rain return from Friday.
