A modest rainfall recovery in the end. YTD rainfall in Hobart is about a one third down as well.

Big temperature record.. Minimum average of 10.0, a big 0.5c leap from the old record. Maximum average should be 19.9c, 0.2c up from old record. Combined, it beats 1963 by 0.35c

Wouldn't it be good to see a few more COLD records broken!! Not too likely it seems.

Sadly I think that is true. We are in a new era, background global warming, changing weather patterns and the East Australia Current stretching into Tasmanian waters to elevate the heat.
Last Hobart cold record was in 2006 ( lowest April average maximum ). Wonder whether any of us will ever see a cold record broken again ( same applies for most other places with long record set ).

I dare say we might but in the same time may see several heat records go!!

I'm waiting to see if this solar minimum does anything interesting (or not) smile

With todays maximum of 19.4c for Hobart, this will mean that the Monthly average is 20.0c!

Nice round number indeed Jezza smile

Bathurst averaged 23.3 which is 3.2 above long term average of 20.1
Our nights were 8.0 vs usual 5.8

More fortunate than Hobart - we FINALLY had a slightly above average rain month - 62.6 vs 59 many months since we could say that. Just like much of Eastern Tassie.

20 c average not great news , it never really backed off .
We are certainly the Climate Change Canary in the cage down here. Co2 at record levels and the East Coast Current bringing Qld waters to our shores with record warmth , who knows what the next stop point will be ? Again so far not a peep from any major news departments , if this was happening consistently in Sydney for example it would certainly be headline news.

The Mercury will cover it if they've got time to get an outdoor happy snap to go with the story I think ( dogs splashing around in the waves or something ).

I've noticed our media usually covers something after the BoM releases their monthly report, which will be today. The Hobart summary in the report I think is designed for the media to use, they don't use other details unless they go asking for some quotes.

But you're right if this were Sydney or Melbourne it would be a national story, more resources and a bigger audience that would be interested I guess

Since 2000, hot records outstrip cold records by 12 to 1 in Australia - not sure I expect that trend to reverse anytime soon. Anyway the month was warm enough and frost free enough to put in some early veggies. Yesterday morning dropped to 1.7 and we may see a couple of cooler nights at the end of this week, but nothing too dramatic.

Yep Tassie is usually forgotten as part of Australia. Probably won't change any time soon unfortunately.

Record warm October but look at GFS!! There could be potential for pretty low level snow for days with 850's below zero and even down to -5.

Damn editing time

When you go through every day and zoom out to see all of Australia on BSCH, it's quite amazing how the cold air just sits near Tassie for a week but the same latitudes further west are getting way warmer 850 temps. You see the difference even more at 500mb with cold pools plaguing the SE but warm below Western Australia. Seems like the negative SAM will have quite an impact down there.

-1.5 last night, coldest morning since Sep 1, a few plants and veggies really didn't like it - looks like the next few nights could all be similarly cold.

Currently in Tasmania for a few days. Was up at Cradle Mountain this afternoon - saw the mountain just in time before a fair bit of precipitation unloaded and continued for some time. Snowline looked to be around 1050-1100m; at Dove Lake (930m) there was heavy sleet, although a few bits of snow remained in sheltered areas which presumably means there was some overnight.

Even Tassie weather looking relatively settled for a few days. A lot of northerly winds means warmer as you've spotted smile

Payshense might get to thaw out smile
