I stopped taking notes when I got into the 1930s because of the regularity.
Interesting to see how lengthy cold outbreaks used to be typical winter fare, and how bad its been over the last 30 years.



Missed 1990 ( 2 )

Went for a drive to Waratah, lot of snow, at least 20cm maybe 25cm in some areas - not much drifting. A lot of traffic heading down the Ridgley Hwy heading for Waratah or Cradle (mostly Cradle).

5 Pics from Waratah:










One of the old stomping ground from twitter at Lower Longley on Vinces Saddle this moring, must have had an inch or two at most.

The snowy mantle in the town looks superb. In the first shot Waratah, looks like someone started to build a snowman some distance behind the park seat then left it - maybe forgotten how it goes?

Or it was built then destroyed by someone else?

Dan, Surely you got a shot of the waterfall looking back from the pub!!! smile

I didn't, but was sent some pics from earlier in the day when the snow was still heavy on the trees and fresh on the ground that included one with the waterfall - although the angle wasn't quite right to see the whole waterfall. I travel down there a least weekly, generally get no sense of the waterfall (sometimes you forget it's there), have only gone for a look when down on non work visits.

I can't believe the snow on Mt.Wellington has vanished so quickly. Perhaps the mystery heat pump which has kept Hobart anomalously warm for so long is coming somewhere from underneath the summit.

Great photos Snowies.

Hey Snowies, yes the waterfall is extremely well disguised and it is VERY easy to drive past it and not realise a very good waterfall is right beside the road. smile

Yep - that sunny side always melts rapidly but on the southern slopes (left of the organ pipes) it will hang about quite a while, possibly weeks. Luckily my house at Ridgeway had that view and I often had snowy slopes to look at when Hobart saw only the sunny side of the hill. smile

Or maybe the heat pump is indeed at work. smile

Out of interest, I saw photos of this latest event for Queenstown and a number of cm's of snow all over the main street etc.

Fair effort at about 140 odd metres elevation!!

Yes low level snow in the south west it seems, reports of snow at about 100m. Precip struggled to get across to the east it seems, only light stuff eastside.

Good and cold though again. As I always believed down there, snowy times don't kick in until the 2nd half of July and then continue through to early October.

GFS has the trough coming through here this weekend BUT then places an ECL far enough south that NE Tas cops it. ACCESS not agreeing, EC gives me thoughts it could happen as well. Ben Lomomd may do ok, especially if it's cool enough to make snow for the bunnies down there. smile

Oh well the Winter that really never was is about to finish the way it started. Here in Hobart I was hopeful we would finally see and average month. Currently we are bang on average , but all that is about to go down the gurgler. Looks like we are in for some very warm days in the next ten days at least. Hobart is looking at 16's & 17's for the foreseeable future. Might even see a 20 in there as well , I just looked at the first few days of September and yes plenty of 20's there already as well. I guess it is what it is , Winter is the new Spring and Summer is just a heatwave. confused

I'm keeping an eye on how long this dry spell is going to last.
9 dry days in a row in Hobart presently, with another 7 in the forecast.
That may be the longest dry spell for years (for any month).
My memory tells me the all time record is 24 or 25 days.

Longest of the 2000s was 21 days in November-December 2003. All-time record is 26 in December 1905-January 1906. Longest in August (wholly or partly) is 16 days in July-August 1949, longest starting in August is 12 days in 1893.
