August is tracking as the sixth coldest since records first began at the current Port Macquarie site two decades ago.
Weatherzone meteorologist Joel Pippard said it's also been the coldest August to date since 2012.
The average minimum temperature for August in 2020 has been sitting at 6.2 degrees, which is .6 degrees below average for the month.
For daytime temperatures the August 2020 average has been recorded as 19.1, 1.1 degrees below average.
Barrington Tops visitors have reported extremely good snowfall over the past week.
Mr Pippard said cold air and moisture is required to produce good quality snow.
On Sunday, August 9 the temperature at the Tops was seven degrees below average and therefore conditions were created to see plenty of the white substance.
Despite the cool August conditions, winter as a whole in 2020 is set to be the fourth warmest since records began 26 years ago.
The data has been driven by the warmer winter nights, which have been .9 degrees higher than minimum average temperature of 8.2 degrees.
Cloud cover has resulted in the minimum temperature being higher than the previous two years.
"The nights have been warm but the days have been cool," Mr Pippard said.
Meanwhile winter daytime temperatures from June to August have stuck to the average of 19.3 degrees.
"So far August is trending below average, whereas the previous two months have been close to average," Mr Pippard said.
"June was just a bit below average for daytime temperatures, whereas July was a bit over."
Winter in 2020 has also been a lot wetter in comparison to previous years.
The amount of rainfall in 2020 has almost broken the average total for all of winter.
To date 259mm of rain has fallen across three months in 2020. The average amount for the three months of winter has been recorded as 276.1mm.
