Cooler change for Hobart after unseasonable heat

Kim Westcott, Wednesday March 27, 2013 - 16:48 EDT

Hobart has had some unseasonably hot weather today with the last vestiges of summer weather hanging on, before a cool gusty change will bring rain and a few storms.

Today was Hobart's hottest day this late in autumn in 23 years, as the mercury soared to 31.8 degrees early this afternoon. On this day in 1990, it reached 32.4 degrees.

Hot conditions will remain ahead of the trough, with strong northerly winds dominating the afternoon, before a cool westerly change comes through this evening.

In the wake of this system, showers are expected for the next couple of days and temperatures will struggle to reach the twenties. The sun should shine again by mid next week.
