Snow on way — a week af­ter 37C day

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

TAS­MA­NIA is ex­pected to see sum­mer snow, a week af­ter Ho­bart equalled its high­est ever Novem­ber tem­per­a­ture at 37C.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­casts snow­fall down to 600m in Western, Cen­tral and South­ern parts of the state on Mon­day.

Bureau fore­caster Deb Ta­bor said Tas­ma­nian weather in re­cent weeks was as “ran­dom” as she had seen.

“We got above av­er­age tem­per­a­tures in Oc­to­ber, very windy con­di­tions in Novem­ber, and it looks like we’ll be start­ing off sum­mer with a bit of snow, so it’s all a lit­tle bit ran­dom,” she said.

“Mon­day is ex­pected to reach a top of 15C in Ho­bart – five de­grees less than the De­cem­ber av­er­age,” she said.

Ho­bart is ex­pected to reach a top of 20C today, with an early and late shower or two.
