Just Snowed again for about half an hour, big flakes, settling and giving a bit of fresh cover.

Very little melt today, sitting on 0°

Plenty of Hail and Sleet too.

Hey SF, have you had much melt today?

Sat pic of OZ & NSW shows the northerly edge of you really cold air just reaching here now.

Still a very interesting satellite image, it's a BIG area of cold air.

Turning to sleet atm 1.8 degrees.

Very happy to still have 5cm left at the end of the day.

Max 2.7 degrees.

Hobart going for a min of 1 degree tonight and Bom talking about major ice tonight.

Still snowing at the very top of the Southern Outlet at 3.30 and sleeting all the way down to The Lea/Albion Heights turn-off.

Yep, on very little empirical evidence and just some fading memories, I think this would be very close to, if not quite the equal of, 2005.

As for the 1990s, this is from The Tasmanian Naturalist (2000)

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SNOWFALLS ON MT. WELLINGTON

Since that time [1986]there has been the occasional snowfall in winter but they have been mostly confined to the upper suburbs. Exceptions were in June 1993 and September 1994. Snow showers fell to sea level and were reported from even the eastern suburbs

but they all fade in comparison to 1986!

I thought I better put my two cents in. We went to Cradle Mountain yesterday. It was unbelievable. Blizzard conditions by 1 pm. A few two wheel drives had issues getting out at 2 pm, when we left. I saw police getting ready to close the roads. So I am unsure if everyone made it out. There was still a few two wheel drive cars parked at Dove Lake car park when we left.

My Queensland Labrador had his first introduction to snow this morning at 3.30 am when we took him outside for doing his business. Our land lord has allowed us to let him in on cold nights thank goodness. We are at 85 asl and we had snow settling overnight. Last snow flakes were at 9.30 this morning but were not settling. A nice blanket of snow could be seen on the Yolla hills up until 1.00 pm today.

I had a friend all excited this morning as it was her first time of seeing snow. She has only had to wait 45 years.

Yes Weather Freak you have the correct years for those beach falls. The main difference being snow settled lower in the city on this occasion. Thin though it may have been there was some snow reported in the CBD. Certainly areas above 100m carried more cover. This event has also been more widespread than those of recent years I think 1986 will be regarded as one of last centuries best moments. Maybe 1951 and 1921 were bigger but they are so long ago?

Watch out all. Stay safe!!!!

Bom very happy with snow to 100m and flurries to sea level.

Temp here 1.6 degrees and cloud and showers clearing.

Evening all,

After a few good Snow falls through the day, picked up another 3-5cm. Giving me 8-10cm for the event. Stoked grin

-2° and every thing is freezing up fast. Crunchy snow. Very cool SSW blowing.

Pretty hard to compare snow events, our memories aren't that good and neither are our records. There'd be a thread here on the 2005 event for comparison. Depends on how you want to compare them, by what criteria? I believe the '93 event was pretty heavy, have vague memories of that one, I think we got snowed in during the evening and smaller amounts were added overnight.

FYI

June 12 1993 at 10pm; thickness was 520.7, 850TMP -5.1 at 1215m - was much warmer the next morning at 10am, was 524 thickness the morning of the 12th.

This morning at 10am; thickness was 520.0, 850TMP -6.7 at 1304m

You could use Mount Wellington Tmps where available and sea level pressures as proxies to determine whether the coldest air arrived for each. The atmosphere had a better moisture profile than this morning as well... might come down to wind directions etc

Sep 1994, 10pm on the 18th 521.7 thickness, -5.7 at 1327m, but it got colder and by 10am on the 19th, 519.1 thickness, -7.3 at 1309 - both profiles have good moisture.

Aug 2005 had three cold profiles,

10am on the 10th, thickness was 523.8, 850TMP -4.9 at 1294m
10pm on the 10th, thickness was 521.4, 850TMP -6.1 at 1321m
10am on the 11th, thickness was 520.9, 850TMP -8.3 at 1331m

Only the first profile had depth of moisture the other two being much colder were a lot drier.


So today's system was short and punchy, the 2005 was colder for longer but dry (could have been the big one), Sep 1994 was colder for longer and packed a punch, June 1993 was similar to this one in length but a fraction warmer... (if you tracked Mount Wellington and some of the active rain stations, you might be able to recreate the events)
