Looks good for snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Nice to get away from the heat.

I still find it pretty amazing that in such a warm and dry country summertime snow at relatively low elevations is so common. Huge parts of the Northern Hemisphere see far, far colder and snowier winters than anywhere in Australia does, but they would have no hope of seeing any of the white stuff in high summer, even at 1000m asl. Yet it seems every summer there's at least 2 or 3 decent snowfalls in places like Miena.

Crazy to think that a few weeks back it was 32C there, and only 300km away it was 45C+. Australia's weather variety is pretty astounding sometimes.

How refreshing to get these cooler conditions. Who knows, maybe we'll end up with a month no more than 1deg above the long-term average? A frosty covering of snow on top of the mountain this morning.

A touch too refreshing, there is a happy median between the heat in mid Jan and the cold of mid Feb, had 15mm of rain yesterday morning and then it was clear, windy, dry and cold late yesterday. Dropped to 2.7 overnight, which oddly enough for Feb isn't our coldest night of the month... reached a max of just 15.4 yesterday.

Morning all
Sure has been a crazy start to the year with so many records being broken across the country.

The hot, dry conditions have certainly eased dramatically here.
In the 7 days from last Thursday till 9am this morning, have recorded rainfall of 33mm, 3.5mm, 35mm, 8.5mm, 15mm, 43mm, 19.5mm. For a total of 157mm. Enough to fill both watertanks thankfully.

Have been getting some very squally hail showers with the odd thunderstorm since yesterday. Still getting them now.
Maximum of just 10℃ yesterday and a very chilly minimum of 4℃
overnight.
And to top it off there is a light blanket of snow on Mount Owen down to about 900m.
Took this picture on daylight. Due to the light at the time, black and white was the the best option for a clear image.

Hi all,
Have been at Great Lake sonce Sunday.
Very light dusting on the car at Tods Corner early, less than Miena. Then at 8am we got a heavier snow show that settled a little better and made the bushes start to turn white. It melted really quickly.
Showers were just not making it to the East.
The snow was even heavier behind Miena, nothing to do with elevation when at this height.
Mt Field had a very nice early season fall with 5-10cm

Nice pic PH! The weather has certainly done as 360 since the back end of Jan.

Yeah LD, probably a bit on the boring side for the next week or two but looks like it might start to heat up again as well, early next week could be a return to consistently warmer temps in the mid to high 20's.

The rotten heat starts again tomorrow, looks like going well into mid March. Another blocking high going to sit in the Tasman for the foreseeable future. Probably be another record breaking March frown

The westerly belt has gone highly meridonal(wavy) . The implications are' see saw' weather. Hot bursts and then cold bursts.
Here is the massive high at the moment giving you mslp of 1030.7hpa !!
http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDT60801/IDT60801.94970.shtml

. Notice the high dipping right down into the sub polar region, Giving you much cooler weather the other day
. Now as that high drifts east , you will get the western flank and will draw heat from the semi arid mainland for the rest of the week.
But that high will pass.

It may pass but this has been the increasing consistency of this over the last 10 years spells big trouble for Tasmania.
This is climate change in action for all to see , it's going to spell the end for many rare plants and untouched wilderness.
Not to mention Tasmanian cool weather agriculture and aquaculture. Forget the clean green cleanest air bit , skies filled with either burn off or bushfire smoke 6 months of the year. Once again I invite all to take a look at the BOM 10 year monthly records , no coincidence that every record has been broken and then topped again shortly after. Anyways I am becoming so acclimitasied to living in high 20's and mid 30's that if we get a day anywhere near average it feels freezing.
Oh well place is set to burn to the ground again starting the first of March 36 plus again.

A couple shots at records to begin March in Hobart: a possible triple 30+ from the 1st-3rd ( don't believe thats happened in March before ). On the 3rd a forecast minimum of 21; monthly record is 21.1c...

Not quite Yep, Hobart has twice had 3 day runs of 30+ in March before. In 1891 the 6th, 7th and 8th of March were 30.6, 36.4 and 33.9 (incidentally there was a 2 day run on the 27th/28th of the same year, which is the latest two day run of 30+). The other instance was in 1967 where the 15th/16th and 17th reached 30.7, 31.1 and 31.8.

So including the one earlier this summer there are only 16 instances of 3 consec days of 30+, only 3 have occured since 1971, but two of them occurred in March.

Anyway, there must be some doubt that Sunday will reach 30 after 9am...

1891 was before a Stevenson screen was installed at Hobart (1895, if I recall correctly).

Yes, the summer prior (1894/95) to it being installed was one of the hottest summers in the record until more recent years surpassed some of the records.

If the BOM let Saturday go through to the keeper like today only 5.2 c off target we will be around 43c. Be nothing left of even my natives and succulents by the end of the week. Every single plant and tree so damaged to the roots. As Jim Morrison said "I'm getting my kicks, man before this whole [censored] house goes up in smoke."
