Shame it didn't eventuate Dave. When I got up there was a very light dusting of snow on the lawn and the cars. Not even worth a photo.

3 degrees, calm and very light drizzle.

Most of the really good snow bearing showers wrapped around tassie and went through bass strait last yesterday and last night, which is why it was a bit dry when the cold air arrived last night.

Coldest air now gone and snow levels rapidly retreating, next 24hrs should see the weather calm down after a rugged week or so.

Hey Payshense - where on the West Coast are you? Think you said before but me forget. smile

Dan- currently we are about 1.5 degrees cooler than Hobart (7.1 v 8.6). Orange is currently about 4.2, cool air certainly about up here.

Geeze, you lot - that sounds awfully cold! Think of Andrew and I later in this week when we have a maximum forecast of 25! That's jeans weather for up here smile

I absolutely drooled over that sat pic you posted DaveM. That's brilliant.

Anyone remember our awesome visit to the BoM offices in Hobart? Those were the days. Meeting up at Fern Tree pub, when we all hardly knew one another and we were all shy and quiet. Pfft. That didn't last long did it. Getting all excited and waiting for snow at the Chalet a while later, and it was like we were all juvenile delinquents. Ha!

I'll think of you Kel, when you're living in Britain through the middle of winter with 6hrs of day light and a top temp of 5.

We are/were juvenile delinquents, chasing snow (and free porn) at the chalet.

Of course the most memorable was the electro shock therapy handed out to DM, reflexes of a tiger. Oddly, no one mentions the fact I forgot to take a sleeping bag that weekend... Thanks DM.

I absolutely did think of that weekend where you forgot a sleeping bag. What a goose!

I don't remember laughing as hard as we did at poor ole DaveM and those reflexes. I also remember laughing so hard I was crying when StaleFish decided fireworks on the fire at the Chalet were a good idea.

I'll be ok with a top temperature of 5. I will never forget last December and that apparent temperature of -6 and the arctic winds in Amsterdam. I remembering ringing Andrew back here and telling him I was about 5 minutes from getting back on a plane to the UK where it was a tropical 7 degrees at the time! poke

Reflexes dulled by some sips of naughty liquor. smile

Yes Dan, lucky I had a spare quilt!! smile Don't worry mate, I set my self up for a laugh to take the pressure off others!! smile

The best days indeed!! smile

Those short days in winter in England make the Tassie short days seem nothing. Look at the watch, ooh it's getting late, suns leaving us, hang on it's only 3pm!! smile

Hobart had another very windy night last night.
Gusts around 74 kmr .
On another note AccuWeather has Hobart in a warm period from Friday the 29th of May through till Wednesday the 10th of June eek
Everyday is forecast to be either 18 or 17 degrees , nothing below eek
Has anybody else noticed this , could it be true ? AccuWeather is usually pretty on the money for long range temps I find.
It seems a long run of warmth ( 13 days straight) given that 10 of them are in the official start of Winter. If this comes off it would be a terrible start for the season .
As said have a look guys and girls at AccuWeather and post your thoughts ?
Ps Just had a look at Melbourne and Adelaide , both of them also in for extended and unusual warmth over that same period.

Where's this cold weather? lovely day today. Wind was not only strong last night but also icey. Nearly blew my wife back down Elizabeth Street last night. It looks like Hobart is going to be kind to us while we are here.

Not sure about these hills though, might have to work on my fitness.

I thought the longest run weather models only extend out to 14 days. There's a reason for that, there are too many random possibilities that come up to make a prognosis. I only look at the 10 day Access model to see what may be coming down the track, beyond the BOMs 7 day forecast guide. I think if longer range forecasts were reliable the BOM would use them.

Based on recent history alone though I think theres a good chance that June will have more warm days than cold ones. Since 1999 for example, Hobart has had only had 2 Junes - 2006 and 2007 - ( so 2/15 ), in which the maximum has exceeded the long term average, and even the 1981-2010 average.

You are a top man DM, selfless to the end. Working on that trip up.

I agree with 'yep' or yep I agree. June has statistically warmed more than most months - so on balance it'll probably be above average. But the models can barely get next week right, let alone the first two weeks of June.

May now around the same sort of averages we saw last year. 7.8 and 15.3 compares with 7.7 and 15.6 from last year, with the usually cooler 2nd half of the month to come. Both min and max 0.8 above the long term May average.

Hi all,

Now the fish is back!!!

Got my password back.

Yes, some good old nights up at the Chalet, will have to do that again.

When are you guys coming South Dave M and Kelmac?

I think that we are in a warmer trend but only re frost.

Very few frosts here so far as we need them to harden off the plants for cutting material in the Nursery.

Any way some extra growth is fine by me, sick of the wind!!!

Not too sure, SF. Andrew and I are moving to the UK later in the year. I have to come back to Australia to get my UK Visa after he's found a job (he's got British citizenship) and am hoping to spend a bit of time in Hobart while I'm back. Just not sure when that will be at this stage.

I'm going to have to not only acclimatise to a very different type of weather, but get used to that white stuff coming from the sky again and going snow chasing. Although not sure we'll have to go very far....

H, we also have amid to high teens all the coming week. It's gunna do what it's gunna do, sit back and enjoy the sun, not so nasty this time of year smile

SF (Qld), yes Hobart tends towards hills, take a walk up that hill called Wellington for a bit of a challenge. smile Don't forget that when you head up Mt Wellington (which is a MUST) it will be about 10 degrees colder and usually heavy freezing winds. However on sunny days up there the views are simply stupendous. smile Wind is the nasty factor of Tas. I know you'd like some nasty weather for adventure but in reality a run of nice sunny days in "winter" (almost) down there is stunning for a trip. You will get COLD temps when you head upwards in elevation. ENJOY smile

SF (Tas), glad you found it mate, struggling to remember you as Leslie Vale. smile Go the smelly fish!! I had a great frost here this morning SF, want me to send it down to you? smile

Looking forward to much more commentary now with a bigger core of posters!! smile Gladdens my heart to hear of how my favourite place is getting along.

Kel - we went to London and Bath/Somerset January last year and it was as mild as could be - 2 weeks not a flake in sight!!! Of course previous years were much colder at that time. We just picked a VERY mild winter to go. frown Still great fun though. The pubs over there are simply the best things. smile

Dan - look forward to that trip. Roughly when again? July?

I got quite a 'mild' winter when I was there in November & December, in the UK. But once I got over to The Netherlands and France it was a whole new story. My record was -5 in Kyoto in Japan the year before (excluding times at the summit of Mt Wellington or in Liawenee!), but -6 and standing out on some flat plains looking at Dutch windmills with arctic winds completely re-wrote 'cold' for me.
I think it was between 8-10 as a maximum most days during the UK leg, and I climatised nicely, starting out with thermals (remembering I'd come from the monsoon build-up of Cairns) to one morning at 7am getting my Sainsburys groceries delivered to my apartment in Yorkshire, and opening the front door and going outside in just jeans and a t-shirt! I was most proud!

And yes, the pubs are brilliant! The food in the UK blew me away. We'd not long come back from the US, Canada & Mexico when I left for the UK, so I had a rather large 'food year' last year LOL!
