Strahan may as well be 1000km away, as the weather at any time can be so vastly different between the two. I have been recording obs here for about 9 months now and compare BOM's obs for Strahan and Mount Read against my own.

In this time I have noticed a rough pattern regarding rain. I am reasonably close to Mount Read and get roughly 2/3 of its rainfall. Meanwhile Strahan, about the same distance away, gets about 1/3. Cape Sorell even less.

MTD figures so far for West Coast at 9am today
Cape Sorell 167mm
Strahan 285mm
My Place 578mm
Mount Read 882mm (9am today)

You certainly get a lot of rain - being on the shoulders of those ranges certainly helps you!

Living on the west coast is cheating when it comes to any competition on rainfall - as is living in Gray in the NE.

Has warmed here in Launceston to a barmy 7 at lunch time. Few spots of rain in the air as well. Funny watching everyone running around all rugged up - been a while.

At least it's cool enough to have them rugged up.

Sat pic shows petty solid cloud lid for you. Not going to get overly warm at all. May struggle to get the 12 in Launnie (you launnie or burnie?) I forget which one drives which direction grin

Some people here seem to dress by the calendar not the weather. I've seen people walking around here recently at about 20 degrees with jackets, scarf and beanie - go figure.

We are tropical compared to you, we at 13 currently.

I'm here peoples just watching and enjoying the cool change.
My wife wants me to cut back on my forum addiction as she says I'm getting to worked up about the weather . And she also advises me I can't change the weather by talking about it either. eek Who would of thought ?
Anyways all I'll say is that I see a warmer and drier first few weeks of next month coming perhaps ? , but that's been the norm of the past few months . Any thoughts on that observation appreciated as I will now observe from a safe distance again. smile
Oh What's that dear ? no no I'm not on the forum again I'm just dropping and email off to my mum .

cheers

The ole addiction gets a few of us grin

Plenty of speckle cloud heading at the West Coast. Mt Read should scrape a few more mm today.

A couple of snow flakes noted around here at around 1150m, very few though. Coldest air should hit here over next couple of hours. Not much precip though.

Too many days of High pressure coming up over next week or 2. Not unusual in June though.

5 consecutive frosts, 4 nights 0 or lower. Looking at another 6 frosts before the current run comes to an end. Beautiful days for the most part, got a bit done outside.

You blokes having to hide you addiction by posting from the dunny crazy Least you can report getting a dump whilst taking dump.

Yes, seems that way (13 year to date), was -1.2 when I left home this morning and still falling slowly. Pretty icy in the backyard. There is a private local station (about 1km away) on weather underground which reports very similar temps - so we must have it about right.

Doing ok for rain, relative to the area's average. Would be a bit in front overall for the year.

Hi all,

Frosty here already tonight, had frost on the cars by 8.00pm.

Down to 3.3 degrees.

Looking like a chance of an East Coast event again, will be worth keeping an eye on it.

2.1 degrees which is very cold for me at this time of night!!!!

-1.3 degrees is the coldest frost I have had in the last 10 year's.

We get very regular heavy ground frost here. But the air always moving at 1.2m above ground level keeping the recorded temp higher.

Thunderstorm, -8.8 at 6:30am

Wonder if we can break a record for coldest temps this year? So many other records have fallen around the Country the last couple of years.

-1 here at 8am

Still a good effort, that's a lot of juice.

-2.4 around 6:30 this morning, might have nudged a bit colder after 7am. Big temperature gradient between home and work, nearly 10 degrees warmer in Devonport. Was 5 degrees warmer and no frost by Elizabeth town.

Looks like Hobart, Launceston, most of the west coast, central north, midlands, south east and upper derwent valley scored frost.

SF - did you break the 'record'? Must have been close.


DM, -4 is starting to get pretty damn cool. Nice effort.
