February - Hobart, Tasmania

A very dry end to summer with a close to average temperature for the month. There was no temperature anomaly compared to the 1981-2010 figures ( listed below ), but it was  +0.4C warmer than the 1961-90 period.

Average maximum:  22.9 ( +0.8 )

Average minimum:  11.8 ( -0.8 ).

Rainfall:  10mm ( average 39mm )

Rain days ( +1mm ):  4/from 7

This was the driest February since 2003 but it fell short of a historical top ten ranking. February is traditionally the driest month of the year but this year was much drier than normal with an absence of late summer rain bearing systems ( upper low pressure troughs extending south from the continent, cut off lows over the Tasman Sea, or storms on fronts moving in from the west ). These events  are fairly irregular. This was an unusual month for not having a 30 degree day, but there were several warm and pleasant days which fell 2 or 3 degrees short.

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

Highest maximum:  28.1.....22nd ( record 40.1 in 1899 )

Lowest maximum:  17.2.....13th ( record 9.6 in 1964 )

Highest minimum:  16.6.....9th ( record 24.7 in 1912 )

Lowest minimum:  8.5.....25th ( record 3.4 in 1980 )


This summer will be remembered for an absence of hot days. The highest temperature of 31.3C was the lowest for any summer since 1977/78, and only two days exceeded 30C, the lowest number of days since the summer of 2001/02 when there was a rare one. Nevertheless, this was a warmer summer than average with an anomaly of +0.7C above the 1981-2010 numbers, or +1.0C above the 1961-90 numbers. The mean minimum was 12.5C and the mean maximum was 22.6C. There was more sunshine than average. Summer rainfall was 127mm ( 90% of the long-term average )
