Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWSFRONT -

TAS­MA­NIA is ex­pected to have an­other flashback to win­ter this week­end, with wild winds and snow fore­cast in the state’s el­e­vated ar­eas.

But the weather bureau says it will be a short, sharp snap be­fore warmer tem­per­a­tures re­turn next week.

“What we will see to­day is a short burst of cold air com­ing through, with snow down very low in the morn­ing. But it will re­treat quickly and con­di­tions should clear about midday,” a spokesman said.

“Tas­ma­nia should get a small taste of the very warm con­di­tions be­ing ex­pe­ri­enced on the main­land on Mon­day when a tongue of warm air licks the state.”

The bureau has is­sued ma­rine wind warn­ings, sheep gra­ziers’ alerts for King and Flin­ders is­lands and across the Tas­ma­nian main­land and a bush­walk­ers alert for western and cen­tral plateau fore­cast dis­tricts.

The tem­per­a­ture will drop to -3 on ku­nanyi/Mt Wellington to­day snow and strong winds fore­cast.

Con­di­tions will also be cold in the Cra­dle Val­ley with a top of just 4C and more snow.

Ho­bart’s tem­per­a­ture only reach 13C to­day. will
