More of a "Rant" than anything else but . . . . . What a difference a day or two makes, last Wednesday and Thursday temps were in the 30's, bloody warm for Tassie, Friday was more akin to Northern NSW or Sth Queensland, 33 and overcast, oppressively humid broken by a powerful and spectacular thunderstorm in the afternoon that dropped 20mm of rain and the temp fell to 19 in the space of an hour.

The rain (not heavy) continued overnight and into Saturday, steady with occasional heavy showers. Saturday evening it picked up a bit in intensity and continues at much the same rate as I type (2.30 Sunday) 26mm since 9 am (62mm since 6 O'clock Friday evening).

The river that on Thursday last had been reduced to almost zero flow, has risen by a mtr or so overnight with a 'low level' flood watch in place and would be an ideal spot for "Chak" to practice his fast water rescue techniques.

I have just checked the "bom" site, it's currently struggling to make double figures temperature wise and the rain will not be stopping any time soon, It is once again snowing in the high country.

But please, not all at once............

If you cant fix it with a hammer, it's obviously an electrical problem.

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

104mms in the gauge for the weekend, finally stopped raining and the river has dropped half a mtr already though still flowing well, it will be interesting to see the changes once it gets back to normal levels. The Platypus would be hunkered down in their burrows and will reap a bounty once the flow reduces........fair dinkum, a bloke wouldn't be dead for quids.

Tassie is known for getting four seasons in one day, especially in the highlands, a white Christmas is always a possibility.

A few records were broken in the max temp department for spring, and the hottest days in a row - days over 30.

Hold on to your wig more of the wet stuff is on the way, heavy falls forecast for the East Coast.


Weather News - Tasmania's Sodden Start To Summer

BEN DOMENSINO, 5 DECEMBER 2017

Hobart is having its wettest start to December in 76 years after days of heavy rain in Tasmania.

Many locations in central and southeastern Tasmania have already exceeded their December monthly average rainfall totals during the first few days of the month.

Fingal's 86.2mm as of 9am today is more 160 per cent of its long-term December average.

Hobart (92mm) and Launceston (72mm) have also received more than one and a half times their December averages so far this month.

This is already Hobart's wettest December in 22 years and the wettest calendar month since September 2016. It's also Hobart's second wettest start to summer on record, beaten only by 111mm during the first five days of December in 1941.

A southward moving low pressure system may cause more rain in across the eastern half of Tasmania during the middle of this week, although there is some uncertainty regarding how much is expected to fall.

Hobartâ??' wettest December on record was 206.4mm in 1985 and the wettest calendar month was 255.4mm in March 1946.
