Good showers headed our way fingers crossed.

A dusting to about 400m on the Hobart side of Mt Wellington. Too dry overnight. The social media post last night of settled snow near sea level further south was probably not quite right. Nothing from Tas Police Alerts suggests anything significant happened overnight. Still a few weeks left for a proper wintery outbreak to happen!

Plenty of ice, temp 1.6 degrees.

Certainly some snow falling at my place at cradoc. Only remains are on the fire stack or house stairs and cars as it melts immediately. Great to see low snow this winter however.

After Monday nights light snow, the southerly winds and clearish skies lead to a few cold nights, -3.3, -2 and -3.2 this morning. Afternoon and early morning cloud on most days stopped any of the nights reaching -4. Anyway, looks like the rains are closing in to finish off winter for another year.

Yeah was a cold morning Snowies, -8.2 at Liawenee, -4.2 at home around 6.30am which makes it our second coldest night for the year.

I left home for work about 2.15am when the temp was around -2.5, got down to kingston 45 minutes later and there was still ice on the copper pipework on the roof bars of the ute! Fresh thats for sure! shocked

Hi all,
What a day!!!! One beautiful blue bird day here.
21.2 degrees in Hobart and 21 again tomorrow.
Had our first Veg fire today with a fire getting away from the landowner in dry Northern facing bush.
Maybe a sign of things to come.

Where are you H20? No complaints about the heat!!

Hi all,

Showers with hail and the odd clap of thunder this morning.
23mm in the gauge. NW 20-30kts.

Seems like we have all been asleep for a week...

Time for an automatic weather station here! Cheap max/min thermometer died a week or so ago, 3rd one in the last 2 years. And checking the rain gauge every day, for accurate long term observations, cant be achieved while regularly away from home.

Warmest day here yesterday since April 24th. Gusty Northerly winds all day and thunderstorms in the evening to go with it.
More like late spring/summer weather?

Would really like to have known exactly what temp it reached here. Thermometer out of the car fridge was telling me 20 around 3pm.
Strahan recorded 19.7 at 2:30pm

-----------------------------------------------------------------

SF, prospect of low level snow Saturday does look promising indeed.
I wont be surprised to see forecast revised down to 200m. West, South West and South East under 524 thickness from mid afternoon well into the evening. Here's hoping smile

Forecast looks absolutely terrific tomorrow with active storms in the north of the state then snow at low levels by evening in the south. Going to be interesting to watch how everything unfolds. Multi-lows forming around the front could see productive rain/snow totals with a bit of luck. Definitely the winteriest outbreak of the year...

Morning all,
6cm at Tods Corner Great Lake.
Roads have warmed up lately and the snow found it hard to stick even when the temp was -1 degrees.
Had a min of -3 last night.
Had some very strong winds up here and at home with a max gust of 86kmhr at home and an average of 50km hr for some time.
Had 15.2mm for the event and 697mm for the year.
Had a report of a light dusting on the cars at Lower Langley 470m.

Hi all , been reluctant to say anything about the warm start.
Just causes to much trouble smile
Anyways 5 days over 20c so far and only 3 weeks since Winter ended. And another few days close to that mark , not a great start that's for sure. One thing can't be denied and that's the old 4 season model is becoming less important. We are having more like two seasons, mild and hot and a handful of cold days a year.

Good to see you back h2O.
I had been missing your complaints/comments on the warmer weather!
Yes has been nice to have a few warmer days! You must enjoy them working at the tip as it is often cold there!
Been up at Great Lake for the night and today and woke to a light dusting this morning and then some nice snow showers while working in the Bush!
Great day.
H2O you need to buy a block at Great Lake then you would be happy!😄

Easily the coldest night of the month last night, -2.8, coldest by a full 1.6 degrees...

Has been very mild, our average max temps are 1.6 degrees warmer than last year up to this point (14.7). Also feels like the weather is drying out quite early - not that this year has hit any great highs as far as rain goes (bar that one night in May in the south).

Hobart average max temp month to date is 16.7, the record was 2014 where it average 17.9 - that included 9 days over 20, top 3 days were 28.2, 24.9 and a 24.4. There are 11 September's that were at least as warm as this one since 1911.

Statistically a September this warm is ~ a 1 in 14 year event. using data since 1911. If you take the last 30 years then its more a 1 in 6 year September (for average max temps).

Pretty dry. Going to be the driest September since 1999 and second driest of the last 40 years. Hydro storages look quite solid at 49.7%

Morning all

Rather dry over here too Yep.

Ever hopeful for some snow to settle(>1cm) here. Only one very light settling so far this year. It had 3 times at the same time last year.
SW half of the State dips under 528 thickness on Friday. From early afternoon until late evening.
BOM 4 day forecast for Western district has snow to 400m Friday and Saturday.
So at 310m ASL I might at least see a few flakes drifting down.

Where will you be at SF?

Hi there peeps. Anyone give me a long range for the 16,17,18 October please. Thinking of a possible East Coast getaway, weather permitting.
Cheers in advance!

15 day forecast has 16 , 17 th sunny and warm for Hobart.
So WTV pack some sunscreen and a night jacket.
Well I do say I'm becoming frustrated with the 12 to 24 hour outlook for rain from the BOM. It seems to me that the forecast of rain that never appears is becoming a frequent event down here. Even tonight the BOM posted showers easing for Hobart , what do they mean the 4 drops we have been blessed with ?
It's shaping up as another one of those hellish warm 8 month periods.On the bonus side in the last 5 years I've had to trim my hedges and mow the lawn once a year in early Spring ( already completed ) as by end of October everything is dead. Looking forward to yet another 35 degree Xmas day with total fire ban this year smile
