Hot weather hanging around

LAUNCESTON has smashed weather records after sweltering through eight consecutive autumn days above 30C.

The previous record was four days above 30C, set from January 28-31 in 2009.

The Bureau of Meterology in Tasmania said the record heat wave – set between March 5 and today – was dramatic because it doubled the previous mark and March was usually significantly cooler than January.

Temperature readings have been taken at the Launceston site since 1980.

The mercury reached well into the 30s today in much of Tasmania.

Hobart hit 36.6C just after 3.30pm. The March average maximum is just 20C.

The Hobart high was just shy of the March record of 37.3C on March 13, 1940. The all-time high for March in Tasmania was 38C in Campania on March 14, 2008.

Bushy Park reached 38C, Grove 37C and Campania and Ouse shared 36C.

Launceston hit 36C and King Island Airport recorded 37C.

The unseasonably warm weather follows Hobart's hottest ever summer, measured from December to February.
