Hopefully some rain to come soon to go along with the much appreciated cool down smile
Meant to rain on Tuesday/Wednesday but as usual not expecting much from it.

We have only had about half the amount of rain we typically have at this point in the year.

Currently 5.7 in Hobart.

Anyone know if there is much temp difference between the eastern and western shore of Hobart?

Cheers.

Sun just taking effect as it breaks through the mist, still a hard frost out there and -2.7, up from the min of -4.7. Had a much warmer night Saturday night at 4.1 after cloud hung around all night - made us one of the warmer places to be. Liawenee set a new low for 2017 this morning at -10.4.

-10.4 is seriously fresh smile

1 degree in Hobart is also very fresh for the city.

WL - I always though the eastern shore was warmer in the day than the Mountain side BUT the open areas of the east I thought COULD at times be frostier. The Eastern shore seemed to be sunnier to me and I think many people seem to think along similar lines.

At least very people people live in Liawenee. Bathursts pair of -7's, Canberra's had 3 under -7 including two -8's and the odd place reaching -10 in NSW is seriously fresh given the number of people affected. We are still just under 0 as 11am approaches, frost is now melted but still misty.

Yep, no doubt the cooler nights up here do affect more people. 43,000 in Bathurst, how about Goulburn, -10 or thereabouts with a population in town of about 25,000.

Of course many surrounding towns with people too.

All the tablelands in NSW can be VERY frosty at times. But we get much warmer than Tassie in the warmer months. So I guess it sort of balances out smile

Impressively cold today when the sun was shielded by the fog this morning and then the clouds this afternoon. 6.6c at midday and 5c now...been a while since we've had temperatures that low during the day.

Time lapse view of the city today on the Rose Bay website will be worth having a look when they upload it, there was a lot of mist and fog about well into the morning.

Yeah very fresh was actually 0.7 degrees the official min.
Just 0.1 degree from the coldest of the year.

Yes that does sound about right.
I've often felt a little colder in the CBD.
I think the Bellerive/Howrah area in particular is a bit warmer due to being right near the beach.

Anyway forecast says a min of 5 tonight but it's already 5.3 degrees.
Think it could get quite a bit lower.
Had to peg some washing out and it felt very chilly.

Your not, it was there. Models couldn't decide whether it was going to rain north or south. It's raining here, after a daytime max of 6.9 - took until 1120am to break 0 with all the fog. Dropped to 2 at 6pm, back to 4 now. May set our max temp overnight.

Evening all,

Another severe frost this AM, down to -6.6C, thats our coldest 3 consecutive minimums below -6.0C in the past 7 years (It's been 7 years that we have had temps recorded in a standard stevenson screen at 1.2mtrs, before that temps were from the southern side of the house mounted on a external brick wall).

Unsure if it is our lowest temp SF, but around 2000-2010 we recorded mins about -5.5Cish on the old station on the house, that station recorded -4.2 the other morning but i take its measurements with a grain of salt cause of its location!

Was a bit more fog about this morning, but as has been mentioned it took a while to lift! grin

Hey WL, I've always thought that the Western side gets cooler in the arvo quicker however doesn't reach the minimums that the Eastern Shore reaches during frosty/clear conditions. However when its more snowy conditions the Western can be a fair bit colder especially around S/Hobart and further South because of low cloud hanging around the Mountain preventing the sunlight from getting through. But again in the same snowy weather especially with a good Southwesterly flow you can get some nasty wind chills off the Derwent down around Howrah/Tranmere! Just my 0.02C.

Don't think your going crazy either Wingtipvortex! grin I seen the same forecast of 15mm, hopefully not a repeat of June where we saw just 4.6mm! shocked

Daytime max a bit cool up your way Snowies, good to hear your getting some rain! smile

Currently a partly cloudy 0.4C (was at -0.6C earlier) with light winds.

Evening all,
There is still plenty of snow on Vinces Saddle in the shade!
Hard frosts and cold weather has kept the snow about.

Not wrong there SF, the ground has certainly lost all its heat the past couple days!

Just worked out that the past 72hrs, 46hrs have been below 0C, i dont know about anyone else but im hoping for less high pressure systems keeping us in this deep freeze! poke

It's all happening down there grin

Sounds like it was a very cold day. Proper weather grin

Hobart CBD is freezing when it's cold & windy, all those building shadows and cold winds funnelling up the streets and lanes.

Criterion St used to freeze us to death many mornings heading to work in winter.

Enjoy your snow, not much anywhere else frown It's definitely a worry in the Snowies etc.

Minus 6 odd is extremely fresh for you BB shocked

A trap for young players, many sites recorded minimum temps that were the reset temperature at 9am yesterday - not the overnight temperature. So Hobart was credited with a min of 1.2 this morning. For those playing at home you have a choice... my overnight temp was 2.0 recorded around 6pm, or if I went with the 9am reset it would be nearer -3 or -4. Fortunately it didn't warm up too much overnight, so yesterday afternoon's cold max temps stand - otherwise it could have been a completely back to front day.

Ah thats pretty weird Snowies, perhaps a glitch or something?
It did feel quite cold this morning, really need to get some equipment for home.

Certainly is Dave, was pretty cool to have the bedroom light up from lightning every five mins or so for a good hour.
Very cold day as well.

I don't believe we have gone over 10 so far yet today either, cloud cover is keeping the temp down.
Still hovering around the 9 degree mark.

Yeah that's always a good one Snowies, can surprise a lot of people, same as having a cold front pass through in the morning for example the warm Northerly winds keep the temp up and you get that colder Westerly change, causing the previous days max temp to be recorded in the early morning! smile

Good to hear of some lightning activity down South, nothing up towards home, was still a bit of stormy looking Cumulus further south from North Hobart around 9ish this morning.

Overnight low of -0.6C earlier evening as well, with a max today of 8.7C, some good rain this arvo with 2.2mm! Should be a little more in it one would hope! It's warming up down here overnight at least DaveM! Would be pretty cold in your part of the world the past couple days? smile

Currently: overcast with light rain, 6.3C with a light Southerly.

Had a surprising 15.8mm from that low split evenly either side of 9am yesterday. A high of 9.4 yesterday, cleared to a low 0.9 this morning. Looks dry for the next few days, chance of a light low level snow event next Mon.
