Snow falls in Tasmania after warmest October on record


Filed in:

As they say in Tasmania, if you don't like the weather come back in five minutes. After Hobart experienced its warmest October on record, snow has returned to the state.

And more is on the way.

Snow fell to 600 metres in the south and 900 metres in the north overnight.

Rachel McInerney from the Weather Bureau said Tasmanians should expect the weather to change significantly throughout the day.

Ms McInerney said temperatures were set to rise to the mid-teens, before the arrival of a second cold front this afternoon.

"It should reach Hobart mid to late afternoon, and in behind that front there's even colder air, quite unstable cold air and with that, hail potentially", she said.

Warm weather was dominant in Tasmania during October, in marked contrast to a cool September.
