Ok guys, i have quite a few pictures and video footage of low level snow in the higher suburbs of Hobart. The elevation ranges from sea level to around 450( Fern Tree )

Ill start at the beginning. These photos were taken in July 1986 when the unexpected sea level snow event took place. It started snowing at around 3pm in the city, and continued on solidly for some time.
Side note, the temp the previous day was a balmy 15 degrees.

The location is the Eastern Shore( Geilston Bay ) looking towards Mt Wellington at dead on sea level.







Ill upload more when time permits cool
