    February - Hobart, Tasmania

    Summer ends warmer and drier than average, after a wet December and January with close to average temperatures. Overall, the mean temperature for summer was +0.3C warmer than the 1981-2010 period but this still made it the coolest season since 2010-11. Most individual stations in Tasmania and across Australia have recorded successive months and seasons of high temperature anomalies for about three years now, and this is reflected in the statewide and national temperature averages.


    Average maximum: 22.5 ( +0.4 )

    Average minimum:  13.4 ( +0.8 )

    Rainfall:  22mm ( average 40mm )

    Rain days ( +1mm ):  6/from 11


    A typical late summer pattern of weak fronts crossing Tasmania or clipping the south coast at 2-4 day intervals, bringing just a shower or two or simply a dry and cooler wind change. Intervals of warming. Near the half way mark the weather tended humid at times, and a trough of low pressure extending south from the continent saw a day of light rain ( 11mm ) - the wettest day of the month. This was a notable period of warm and muggy nights. A fairly lame thundery breakdown on the 23rd, then cool to mild and mainly dry for the rest of the month with a cool southerly wind at first, tending westerly, with weak frontal features bringing just the briefest of showers.


    Extremes in daily temperature for February ( Records since 1882 ):

    Highest maximum:  34.7...22nd ( Record 40.1 in 1899 )

    Lowest maximum:  15.1...1st ( Record 9.6 in 1964 )


    Highest minimum:  21.4...23rd ( Record 24.7 in 1912 )

    Lowest minimum:  7.0...5th ( Record 3.4 in 1980 )

    A month with a typical winter mix, with temperatures overall slightly below average. In general the first half of the month was settled and rather cold, and the second half more westerly and unsettled with near average temperatures. 1.5cm of lying snow on the morning of the 2nd was the only lying snow recorded this winter; this melted by lunchtime.
