Records set to be broken in TAS

Graeme Brittain, Tuesday November 28, 2017 - 17:59 AEDT

Hobart and Launceston are on course to see their warmest November daytime temperature on record.

Tasmania has been basking in some of the warmest late-Spring weather in decades. In 135 years of records in Hobart, November 1921 is the month to beat, with a mean maximum of 21.5 degrees. The previous record for Launceston was 22.5 degrees in November 2007, with data at the current site collected since 1980.

The cities are running at least 0.5 degrees above the previous records, and given the final two days of the month will see the mercury peaking in the high-20's or low-30's, these records will almost certainly be broken.

However, as we welcome in the last month of 2017, temperatures will drop significantly. A strong frontal system will bring cloud, wind and rain across the Apple Isle from the 1st of December. The maximum temperature will be over ten degrees colder in some places on Friday compared to Thursday.

So make the most of the last few days of spring, for summer will begin on a very different note.
