Hi all,

Cold this morning at home with a minimum of -1.2 C light frost on the ground.

Rainfall for September in Brighton was a whopping 15.6mm, not near as bad as other places around the country, but not great either especially coming into summer. Will be intresting to see how things lead into the summer. grin

I see they are forecasting 24 sun and 26 for mon. That'll keep the warm weather lovers happy and MH20 less than happy.

Just saw the Hobart Aerological sounding from today. It recorded 850mb (around 1600m) temps of around -7! About as cold as it gets in terms of 850mb temperatures in Aus. Although the upper temps were comparatively extremely warm, even being warmer at the 700mb (around 3000m). Quite odd

Unsurpisingly with those numbers, it was quite dry overnight despite some places being cold (Mount Wellington below -4)

If Hobart achieves a 25 early next week, it'll be the first over 25 since the 17th of March - unusually the 17th of March was also the last day to reach 30 at 30.1.

Hey just joking I don't think that you'd like the beer up there anyway.
Looking at the percentiles for October 2017 till January 2018 all exceeded the 95% above average mark. Given that I think it will be unlikely of a repeat again this year . I just have a gut feeling of a cool wet 6 to 7 month period despite El Nino.

Hi from climate change central Hobart,
Well tomorrow we see Hobart well above the Mainland capitals for max temps. Once again I say if these changes and events were happening in Sydney it would be front page news. But as it is Hobart not a mention about being 9 and 10 degrees over average and then back to 4 or 5 degrees over average.
Oh well another Hobart day that will be about what it is Cairns Queensland.
Thank god for air con have them all fired up ( 4 ) still 21c out and not a breath of wind . It's only October what hell ride ahead.

Howdy MH and others, sorry not to be in here for ages. New job (since May) is VERY busy and not conducive to posting during the day. Tried using the phone but it's a pain!!! smile

I hope you're on the money re a cooler period MH - be nice to not cook for a change. Hoping that depsite "el Nino" we can all get some rain.

Take care guys - I will try and drop in occasionally smile

DM - I was starting to worry about you/family - good to hear it's just a busy job keeping you away.

Models have a couple of cold changes in them for Sat and again mid next week - GFS very bullish with near 525 thickness, BOM model probably more realistic at 530ish. Both have quite cold 850TMPS which raises the prospect of further late season frosts. Had two frosts Sun/Mon both around the 0 mark. Don't really need anymore...

An unusually stormy night, still rumbling through Launceston now. Good light show early last night, then it flashed and rumbled around most of the night - most of it fairly distant. Had 11mm which is ok by recent standards...

Looking at the radar last night, it was showing heaps of lightning between Strahan and Dover, it was hard to see the map for the lightning.

Hobart had a couple of brief heavy showers (about 4mm) and a bit of lightning in the distance but that's about it.

Hi all

Seems we have all been a little busy lately. Good to see some fresh posts. Lets keep it going smile

Hows this for a start to November. Not quite 4 seasons in one day. Very close though.

Started off the month with a minimum of 0.5 and a light frost Thursday morning.
Things heated up pretty quickly and recorded a maximum of 24 early afternoon. A range in temperature of 23.5 for the day.
Late afternoon/early evening the thunderstorms, at times very intense, moved in and continued on into Friday morning.

Minimum Friday of 16 and a maximum of 17. A range of just 1.
Rainfall 11mm.
Had some light hail early in the day associated with some very gusty squalls.

22mm this morning. Minimum of 6.5
Thunder still rumbling early, still getting hail.
Snow on Mount Owen down to about 800m
Very fresh and gusty WSW of 30-40kts (55-70km/h)
Mount Read recorded gusts to 63kts (117km/h) early evening last night.
At around the same time, Maatsuyker Island recorded gusts to 78kts (145km/h).
Mount Wellington 72kts (133km/h)

Hi all,

Very wild and exposed down there on Maatsuyker as Blair mentioned, looks like the wind vane seems to be having issues again and also some issues with patchy data being transmitted, a harsh environment for any type of instrument with such consistent high winds. Highest mean wind spread down there of 130 km/h, but i would of imagined it would have been higher around 2.30am!

A bit windy at home at the moment- Mean winds of 50-60 km/h with gusts to 84 km/h, absolutely ear numbing outside! grin

Was this morning the last frost for 2018? Must be close to it. -0.9 around 6am. Car was iced over etc. In three years that's the latest sub-zero night by a few days.

Nearby Cressy has recorded sub 0 nights as late as the 10th/12 (total of 7 occurrences in Dec across two site since 1965), most recent was in 2010.
