Nailbiting end to summer

TASMANIA'S climate experts are in the grip of a meteorological nailbiter as they wait to see if Hobart has just recorded its hottest summer ever.

The Bureau of Meteorology will know at 9am tomorrow if summer 2012-2013 will enter the history books as a record-breaking scorcher.

While Hobart recorded its hottest day ever on January 4 (41.8C), the bureau has to wait until the end of the last day of summer to make a call on the season as a whole.

"It really has come down to the last 24 hours of the season," BOM climatologist Ian Barnes-Keoghan said today as the temperature sat at a very cool 15C at noon in Tasmania's capital.

"We are sitting just on a record as we speak but we have to wait to see what happens during the rest of the day and overnight before we can call it.

"Whatever happens, we know it has been a hot, dry summer overall."

In total, Hobart recorded nine days over 30C this summer.

Tasmanians got their first taste of autumn yesterday when the overnight temperature fell to 10.9C just after 5am.

Firewood merchants say early orders are already coming in.

Mr Barnes-Keoghan said long-range forecasts indicated Tasmania would experience a cooler autumn than usual.
