I've never heard if it ever has in past and just wondered if anyone knows whether snow has fallen on the high ground on Flinders?

I reckon it would have because Mt Strezleckie (? wrong spelling?)is I think about 760m asl. I would be very surprised if it hadn't at some point. I've a feeking that when I lived in Tas that I had heard of it snowing there several times.

It was not unusual to have snow to 300 metres around Hobart so even with the relatively warm waters of Bass St it would have snowed despite probably a quick melt.

Yeah...I was thinking if you parked yourself on top you might see some...for instance middle of this week from models looks fairly promising on the island 500hPa around -25 and 850 below zero.

If you have a squiz at the satellite image, it looks like Tassie might get 'whipped' with the 'tail' of the spiralling system brewing...could be snow in them there hills (and plains) with that? Have to wait and see...

I got all excited about the chance of a doozy of a storm at around 8pm (or before)....now we just have clear skies and found myself stargazing instead.
One of my sage fellow Victorians weather watchers (who is definitely more of an expert than I am)reckons that we'll see some weather action from about 11pm onwards...I hope so.
It's actually quite mild here at the moment...calm before the storm?

Probably wont be any snow for Flinders out of this lot - but imagine the winds going to be fierce.

Looks like central plateau Great lake area will be best served with freezing level below 1000m....
