Warm gales ripped through HobartRob Sharpe, Saturday October 5, 2013 - 13:35 EST
Winds gusted over 100km/h in Hobart this morning, but winds are easing, with cooler temperatures coming tomorrow.
Hobart experienced winds gusting over 80km/h from 8:30am with a peak just before midday at 102km/h. This is the strongest gust since May. These winds would have made a trip to the Salamanca markets a hair raising event. Elsewhere, Mt Wellington has seen the strongest gust today, reaching a mighty 132km/h.
The cold front is crossing today, gradually pushing away the 23 degree heat and bringing in a colder airmass with temperatures only expected to reach 14 degrees in the Tasmanian capital on Monday.
