SNOW could fall on the Darling Downs if the perfect storm of weather conditions arises, a well-known storm chaser says.

Jeff Higgins from Higgins Storm Chasing said snow could fall this weekend in the Granite Belt.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a big chill will sweep the region, with Warwick to get to -1 and Stanthorpe -3 on Sunday.

Toowoomba could get as low as 3 degrees.

The apparent temperature will likely be even colder.

Mr Higgins said a big snow dump was headed for the alpine regions of Victoria and New South Wales.

"Snow and sleet are possible on the Northern Tablelands which may just scrape into the Granite Belt."

He's predicting snow could fall on Stanthorpe.

On July 17 last year residents from across Queensland rushed to Stanthorpe when thick snow covered the region.

A snow-covered welcome to Queensland sign quickly became the most memorable photo of winter.

CCTV footage at the time claimed to show flakes falling on Toowoomba.
