Snow on way — a week after 37C day
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.
