    January - Hobart, Tasmania

    This was the equal warmest January in 135 years of records, a tie with 2003. It is the fourth month in a row for record or near-record warmth; both October and November set new records for mean temperature and December ranked second. There has been no four-month period of high monthly anomalies like this since records began in 1882. In fact, there hasn't been three, so this is new territory. The Tasmania-wide heat ranks for the last four months shows a corresponding heightened period of heat.  For January, the Hobart anomaly was +1.95c ( compared to 1981-2010 ) or +2.25c above 1961-1990. This month also saw the warmest January night ( official minimum ) , a record set on the 29th.

    Average maximum:  24.4 ( +2.2 )

    Average minimum:  14.3 ( +1.7 )

    Rainfall:  22mm ( average 47mm )

    Rain days (+1mm): 3/from 7   

    Very warm and dry, settled, with a lingering warmth from the continent. There were 7 days of precipitation. Weak fronts crossing southern Tasmania brought 0.2mm on the 7th and 10th. A strong front crossing from the west brought 6mm on the night of the 12th, then cool onshore winds from the south brought  frequent showers and 11mm on the 13th. A clearing shower on the 14th with 0.2mm. Dry until the 29th with a front crossing during the day bringing 5mm. Cooler west-southwesterly winds on the 30th with 0.6mm of showers. Another front later in the day to bring a few showers overnight and through the 31st . A  dusting of snow to 1000m early in the morning.

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

    Highest maximum:  36.7.....28th ( record 41.8 in 2013 )

    Lowest maximum:  15.8.....13th ( record 11.1 in 1885 )

    Highest minimum:  23.9.....29th ( previous record 23.4 in 2013 )

    Lowest minimum:  8.4.....31st ( record 3.3 in 1902 )

    Historical month for warmth...again


    ....and the record warm January night
