Good to hear you got some rain up your way Snowies! Definitely overdue for you guys.

A very blustery day thatís for sure, a couple wind gusts in the 90km/h range out here at Brighton, especially with the scuds going through, peak gust of 97 km/h around 16:30! No damage around which is always good! Settling down for a bit of a wild evening! grin

The month continues to surprise, after the thunderstorms on Sunday night/Monday morning, Monday saw a number of showers with hail - temp dropping to 7 during the showers. Monday max temp of 13.1 was our coldest March max by 2.4 degrees (in 4 Marches).

This morning we registered our 3rd frost (had to de-ice the car) for the month with min of 1.1.

So we've had our two warmest max temps, our lowest max temp, our 3 lowest min temps, 10 days over 25 degrees, 3 frosts, thunderstorms, hail, and 23 dry days as part of a 39 dry day run. Not even sure that's the last frost. Nevermind the wind the other night, no idea if that set any kind of record.

Morning all,
Possible new record min for Tasmania and Liawenee this morning with -7.3 degrees. What an effort for early April.

A real surprise, the forecast was -3!

Looks like 3rd coldest April temp for Tasmania, but easily coldest first half of month.

Proviso.. Liawenee has records since 1986.

My understanding is that all 3 of those -7's are all from the new Liawenee (AWS) site that commenced in 2001. Suggests the newer site is quite a bit colder than the old site. The new site had never had anything below a -6 before the middle of April.

I thought Tunnack's -3.3 might have been notable, but it's nowhere near a record for the month. Their monthly record was a -5.3 - set on the 4th of April 2004. Quite a record that one.

Despite the cool days here and there still at 19.7c average near record and well into 95% percentiles for Hobart April. Looking very warm up to 25c next week , as usual I hold absolutely no hope we will see no more than 2 weeks of really cold winter weather. Then back to El Nino and heatwaves by August.

Bushfire out of control near Coles Bay evacuations have been requested. Dolphin Sands residents urged to leave.
Massive blocking highs in the Bight ,some bigger in size than mainland Australia about to make their presence felt in the next 10 days , it's about to get very warm and sunny . Bushfire season and the drought is far from over.

Bushfire out of control near Coles Bay evacuations have been requested. Dolphin Sands residents urged to leave from ABC news an hour ago.

Another frost this morning, coldest so far at 0.0. Makes 7 so far, 3 in March and 4 so far in April.

Reckon we'll be looking at late season heat records next week, Easter Saturday at this early stage looks very warm.

Might be hard records to beat now I look at it, Last 30 degree day in the 4th of April, last day greater than 28 or 29 is the 23rd of April (29.1), last day over 26 or 27 is the 27th of April (27.0) and last day over 25 is the 5th of May. So realistically the only one we can beat before easter is the latest 30 degree day. All figures quoted are Hobart.
