The weather in Tasmania today

Recommended Posts

The Huon Valley is lovely - maybe the snow just settles on the surrounding hills and not lower down.  Launceston is warmer in the summer and colder in the winter than the north west coast.  I've seen a flurry of snow in Devonport which lasted about 5 minutes.  Two other places I find a lot colder than Devonport in the winter are Sheffield and Deloraine - anywhere inland really.

We really liked the Grindelwald and Dilston areas

You're unlikely to see snow there.  Can get a bit frosty in winter, though.

Apparently the UK is also expecting some very warm weather soon.  Hard to believe it was snowing there not so long ago.

Yes Libby, the weather is just lovely just now.  Lovely autumn days.  :)

Launceston City Park (the one with the monkeys) is lovely in the autumn.  Did you go there?

No the weather was awful so we went to the museum....but we're back there in a couple of weekends so hopefully can do the Harvest market and city park ☺

Thick fog is often a hazard in autumn and winter on the way to Launceston.  The fogs settles in all the dips and hollows.  I've had hospital appointments in Launceston and had to leave much earlier to allow for very careful driving on the way there.  It's usually gone by the time I'm on the way back home.

Blustery wind blowing off the Bass Strait and a grey, cool day.  Counted 15 surfers at the mouth of the river later this afternoon at high tide.

I had 170 mm in my rain gauge in 24 hours.  I live a quarter of the way up the mountain which had 236 on the summit and of course, being quite steep, it rushes down to the city very quickly.  No flooding and no leaks for me, fortunately. 

Although, ironically, I had a flood 3 days before.  I had a water filter attached to the cold water inlet in the garage (under the kitchen floor).  It suddenly burst off - in the middle of a massive wind storm - and I had cascades of water flooding  down the back wall into the garage.  So I did my water mopping on Tuesday.  :rolleyes:

The Bass Strait is like a mill pond today.  No wind at all.

I wish we had some of that rain here.  No rain for weeks and the gardens are suffering.  Never satisfied are we!
