Short, sharp icy burst for Tassie
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
