Looks showery in Tassie - hope it gives a half decent drink to the dry areas.

Swansea has had 50mm total since the last week of May, so 5 months. Probably not many places in Australia with rain gauge would have been drier than that in the same time frame ..

Indeed Yep - spot on. Sadly Swansea Bicheno etc often so very dry as we know. Being on the leeward side of the island does not induce regular precip. frown

They BADLY need an east coast low type of event.

Most people on the mainland would NEVER believe your info yet it happens so many years.

We have done better than Swansea but not heaps more. We have had 84mm since June 1st till today, however, 21mm was last week so up till last week we had 62mm. Of that 62mm, 39mm fell over a couple of days in August.

Definitely better than Swansea but still not great either.

MANY inland areas of NSW are worse than us as well.

It has been a terrible time for rain over this year for a lot of places.

Here's hoping it is turning around now, I think it is. Shame you can't transport the East Coast to the west for a wet holiday frown

As I type of course, a rain band is wandering across the State of NSW that should hopefully give us 20mm or so.

Wish I could shove some down to the SE and E of Tassie.

A tick over 8mm yesterday, very close to 600mm YTD. Travelled to Hobart and back, dry in places, but greener than I thought in parts of the southern Midlands. Hobart surrounds looked a bit dry though.

Topped out at 27.2 on Wed. Amazing how much some of the fruit trees etc came on with the extra warmth.

Would be nice to have an excellent weather memory like that, I don't know whether you remember that guy that used to be a guest on abc radio when you were living down here, he remembered what the weather was doing in Hobart every day for the past 50 years or something by memory recall alone, people used to call in with a date.

Driest to fifth driest October in Hobart is 8.6mm (1982) through to 19.6mm (2008), maybe we'll finish up there at the top? 14.4mm in 2015 though. It'' be interesting to see what the Tasmania-wide total will be for the month, east parched but the west doesn't look desperately dry, just checked out a few places.

Sorry - can't remember grin

A very bad year for the East, followed by the usual SE suspects.

Very sad news indeed considering the last one was equaled only back in 2015. Certainly has been well over average and more like something we would expect in Jan Feb , but alas now an all too consistent warming trend. frown

The heat is definitely no good at all.

Even worse is the lack of rain.

Double whammy.

8mm to 9am today

72mm in the last 7 days

181mm MTD Oct 2017

411mm MTD Oct 2016

I'm sure some will laugh when I say it is considerably drier here than last year.


Looks like a good chance of a decent cold change around the end of the month. I think we could well see snow forecast down to at least 600m, possibly lower. I'd like to be wrong, we have several trays of vegie seedlings just itching to go in the ground.

Dan - the boys down south would be hanging out for your rain numbers!!

Hope the fires don't eventuate. No fun at all. Too much dry vegetation down south is a big concern. Fingers crossed.

Wish we could ALL get a proper DRENCHING!! We had showers last night - actually up to about 20mm for the mtd - been a very long time since I could say that.

Maybe we are getting little bits of rain - hopefully Hobart will soon too.


Made it to Melbourne ok. Was quite good. Just had a few nice cold Boags then retired to my cabin and before I new it the speaker was announcing that we would be in Port Melbourne in 1/2 hour. Slept through it all😀😀

Hobart today ( Saturday ) was never going to be the predicted 23 c after last night was 7 c over average . Made it 25 c in the City and a couple warmer here.
Now well and truly in record smashing figures for October both night and day averages. The temps just mean we have been robbed again of another cooler month and in effect had to endure another Summer like one frown

Morning all

45mm in the gauge. Most of which fell in the 12 hours to 9am.

10-20kts NW and partly cloudy here this morning.

Some small scuds on radar. Might get a bit more rain through the day.

Currently running 29% below average, 21st lowest on record, with one day to go.
