December - Hobart, Tasmania

Second warmest December in 136 years of records, just behind 1994. The mean anomaly was +2.1c compared to 1981-2010 ( figures below ) or +2.4c above 1961-1990. The mean monthly minimum temperature set a new record ( the third month in a row! ), the mean maximum was well up, but a few Decembers have been significantly warmer.

Average maximum:  22.5 ( +2.1 )

Average minimum:  13.4 ( +2.0 )

Rainfall:  101mm ( average 56mm )

Rain days ( +1mm ):  4/from 10 

This months special event was a cold wet and windy weekend on the 2nd/3rd with significant settled snow in highland areas, as low as 900m. A strong upper low pressure system developed over southern Australia, with an intense surface low developing off Tasmania's north east coast. 92mm fell in Hobart over three days, with the upper reaches of the mountain switching between settled blizzards and rain. The low weakened moving south eastward and conditions cleared to cool. Another 8mm on the 7th as a weaker low moved southward down Tasmania's east coast. The rest of the month was mild to warm, largely settled and dry but cloudy at times, under high pressure conditions across southern Australia. Onshore winds behind weak Southern Ocean fronts brought just a local shower, with just 1mm all up after the 9th.

Extremes in daily temperature for December ( records since 1882 ):

Highest maximum;  32.3.....28th ( record 40.6 in 1897 )

Highest minimum:  20.0.....28th ( record 23.9 in 1920 )
