    We few taswegians don't seem to have our own thread so here is one. It will probably only be me posting but hopefully some others will chip in.

    Seven days of showers forecast for the NW coast and 6 days of snow showers on the Ben. I doubt there will be enough accumulation to get the tows running but its a start.

    Watching the snowcams with interest

    So much for the afore mentioned rain..... a very light shower over night but otherwise just damp and dewy. No action on the cams either, just low cloud at the Ben.

    As small and remote (from NSW!) the Tassie fields are, I still want to have a look and ski.
    Any slide is a good slide :D:D

    Good luck with this thread, I'll be checking in!

    I do of course expect to see your daily backyard rain gauge readings.

    It's been pretty bloody dry to be honest so not much action to report there. There is however something in the forecast for the back half of this week which will almost certainly provide some snow for Mt Field. It doesn't look much at this stage but we'll see. Last year in late July we had a lovely dump. Fingers are crossed.

    Oh what a wild and wooly night. Flights cancelled in and out of Devonport and I suspect the big red boat would have been a chunder bucket.
    Nice to see the Ben with some white action.....

    Occasional lurker around the weather forum here, former posting pest, currently living in Westbury. Nice to see some Tas content now that weatherzone is going. Has been wet through the north recently, most of the rivers are 'flooded' (up near minor flood levels). Some light snow on the Western Tiers this morning. Reports of upwards of 10cm around Miena. Some moderate to heavy snow forecast for the central highlands on Sunday, especially around Lake St Clair and the Walls of Jerusalem.

    Difference between the Meander River at Deloraine on the 9th of June (top) and yesterday (below).

    Poor old Deloraine does tend to cop a bit of a wetting. I wonder if the caravan park is going under this time.

    Quite a lot of snow over the highlands (75cm at Mount Mawson), but temps today (and last night) well above 0 above 1000m (Liawenee nearing 5), so snow melt will be pretty high until it cools again tomorrow. Quite a few bushwalkers etc have gone missing, most of whom have been found, choppers checking in on walkers in the Cradle Mountain/Lake St Clair region (overland track). A friend reported more than 30cm on the eastern (drier) side of Great Lake yesterday morning.

    It was a balmy 14 degrees driving to work this morning along the Bass Hwy according to my car. No wonder Mt Roland has lost its nice white blanket :(

    Yes, very mild in Hobart as well. Last nights minimum was 10.9, and it has been above 0 on Mt Wellington since 1pm yeserday. I expect there is rapid snow melt going on at present across the state.

    Obvious from the cams that Mt Mawson lost a bit in the past 24hrs or so, particularly after such a good dump :cry::mad:

    I'll be keeping an on this thread, snow or not. I have two Grandsons and family in Launceston. Will see if I can find some flood pics of The Gorge from a couple of years ago, was truly "awesome"

    No, not enough for the caravan to go under.

    More light snow over the highlands last night, Western Tiers had another dusting to 800 or 900m.

    Bits 'n' pieces forecast over the next week, scattered showers/rain with the odd front pushing through, but nothing stands out as substancial at this stage. Even the frosts have been held in check of late (was a lot through June, at least a lot in land where I am).

    Yes had some wicked frosts here too in June just 3 km from the coast. Steady rain here and it feels cold enough for another dusting on mt Roland, I'll see what the morning brings.
