I think it was a Taswegian who once said:

"Intelligence is positively correlated with latitude."

and

"Life begins at 41degS."

Smart dude.

Sounds like Perth.. minus 20deg.

What do they call the seabreeze down that way?

Or does it only happen once a summer?

Certainly is Dave , I can't believe it and with a very stiff breeze as well . Not sure what tomorrow will bring yet , last time I looked it was going to 26 degrees. At least it's Friday and any loss of sweat in the tin shed or tip face will be replaced by cooling ales in the evening.

The Hobart sea breeze is like clockwork for most of the year, especially in the warmer months. Usually comes in gusty, brisk & cool at around 2.30 or so. Out on the Derwent (eg in a sailing vessel) it can pump the seas up rapidly and make it quite rough. smile

Reckon they call it a sea breeze evillaugh

I don't recall a specific name like "the doctor" etc. grin

Yes DM the tape...not the other type of Durex wink although...maybe not. I was referring to myself, MH2O said I was pretty handy with the Nylex.

OR - I like it...all members should have to pass one of those tests. Mind you someone from a place called Orange, with a screen name that is a play on words and a reference to a fish found nowhere near Orange shouldn't thrown stones... laugh

Pretty sure the seabreeze in Hobart is just the seabreeze, it's not the Bruny blow, the Derwent delight or the Hobart heatkiller. But we could start something? Afterall Hobart does have the Bridgewater Jerry.

Unfortunately, when you include the northern hemisphere, the southern hemisphere is often denoted with negative latitudes - which makes Santa the smartest off all - not that giving everything away seems smart.

O/R - can you guess what the "Bridgewater Jerry" is that snowies mentioned?

It is something named and known well and truly down there.

Hey Dan - I like the fish comments!! grin

Touche snowman! Blame it on the Carp. No room for the jolly old OR in inland rivers..

Negative latitudes perhaps...but negative attitudes NOT.

Love the seabreeze suggestions! LoL

I must have had a sheltered life growing up in Hobart Dave. Got me stumped too re the "Bridgewater Jerry". Or maybe I'm just not old enough to remember it. grin

Yes, its the slow moving fog as the cold air drains down the Derwent Valley.

The Bridgewater Jerry is a fish? an Orange Roughy, given the nature of Bridgewate it's more likely to be a burnt out car.

Some more names for the seabreeze, the Opussum Bay Oscillation, the South Arm squall or the Iron Pot Ice Maiden?

Yes as Dan confirmed, the Jerry is in fact a huge fog bank that heads down to the Derwent Estuary from further upstream, even New Norfolk where the air is MUCH cooler overnight than in Hobart (Hobart is of course on the water and hence warmer).

If you watch it from beside or above, it sometimes looks a lot like flowing water. It can take several hours to pass through, it CAN create a quite strong and very cold breeze within it. It can bring bitterly cold air with it.

I was once hitting at the Domain Tennis complex (trying out racquets) on a clear blue but cool morning. Next thing I know the Jerry flows over us and all of a sudden we were damp and frozen to the core, also vis was cut instantly from infinity to 30 or 40m. An amazing experience.

It is constrained by the hills either side of the river, once it hits the open areas it tends to dissipate although sometimes it will continue outward as a really big fog bank. grin

It is a Hobart institution and very much a very regular but localised phenomenon.

Dan - I really like your see breeze names.

Derwent dustbuster??

Taroona typhoon

Bruny breeze

grin

Margate Mauler, Kingston Kink.

Surely one of them is a goer.

Ta Dave. A quite graphic description of the fog they call BJ.

After reading that maybe it should be renamed the Bridgewater Ball Buster?
grin

A growing collection of sea breeze names: nice work. Giving the Freo Doctor a run for its money.
