Biggest snow in Hobart for 30yrs04 August 2015 by News Desk
The city of Hobart is experiencing its’ biggest snowfall for three decades.
Residents awoke this week to find a blanket of snow had fallen across city in the biggest dump of ‘white stuff’ since 1986. The snow has even fallen on some beaches around Hobart.
Meteorologists say record snowfall comes from very cold air that has travelled in a big cold front up from Antarctica. There was a big snowfall in Hobart in 2005 but it was not as widespread as this week’s winter event.
Videos of children surfing on a Hobart beach in the snow have proved popular and have gone ‘viral’ around the world.
