A string of warm mornings for eastern Tasmania

Sam Brown, Saturday June 15, 2013 - 15:23 EST

Increased cloud cover associated with an East Coast Low and a lack of strong cold fronts has brought warmer-than-average mornings across eastern Tasmania.

Launceston has maintained five consecutive mornings above seven degrees, making it the longest stretch of above average June mornings since 2009. Launceston‚??s minimum June average is just 2.9 degrees.

Likewise, Grove has had seven mornings above six degrees, its longest run of June mornings since 2004. Dover has maintained seven consecutive mornings of six degrees or above, making it the longest run in June since 2002.

These warmer-than-average mornings are likely to persist over the next few days for most of eastern Tasmania as cloud cover remains overhead in the wake of the East Coast Low. A high pressure system is expected to move over the state from Wednesday afternoon bringing mostly clear skies and dry conditions, which will also bring minimum temperatures closer to average.
