    March here continued the theme after a mild and dry winter with an average temp of 8.3c, which is 2.5c above the 1981-2010 average.

    We had 42mm of rain which is only slightly drier than normal.

    Only one day of wet snow falling from a small shower and only 2 frosts made it feel much more like Spring than an extension of winter this year unlike previous years.

    March - Hobart, Tasmania

    A warm start to autumn which follows on from a moderately warm summer. This was the third warmest March on record. The mean temperature anomaly was 1.8c above the 1981-2010 period ( listed in brackets below ). Compared to the 1961-90 period the mean anomaly is the same. Recent Marchs here have been exceptionally warm:


    Average maximum:  22.4 ( + 2.1 )

    Average minimum:  12.9 ( +1.5 )

    Rainfall:  37mm ( average 45mm )

    Rain days ( +1mm ):  8/from11

    For the first 20 days of the month high pressure dominated to the east. On days when the city had cooler seabreezes or a wind change following weak fronts, it was almost persistently warm away from the coast and in the central north. A notable interruption to the pattern occurred on the 11/12th, as a small low formed over eastern Victoria, extending a trough down Tasmania's east coast. 10mm fell in the city over a 36 hour period. The major weather break occurred between the 21st-23rd as a low pressure trough extended down Australia's east coast. Forming a low over waters to Tasmania's north east, there were two to three days of onshore easterly winds bringing showery drizzle at times, cool sea air and hill fog. Clearing to mild to warm and mainly dry for the rest of the month, then a more significant front late on the 29th paving the way for much cooler but drier air to follow.

    Extremes in daily temperature for March ( records since 1883 ):   

    Highest maximum:  32.1....14th ( record 37.3 in 2008 )

    Lowest maximum:  15.8....22nd ( record 8.9 in 1925 )

    Highest minimum:  20.7....16th ( record 21.1 in 1906 )

    Lowest minimum:  5.7....31st ( record 1.8 in 1926 )
