Just days after city of Launceston was hammered by its first settling snow for 40 years, the state of Tasmania has now just confirmed its lowest ever temperatue in modern history.
The freezing -14.2°C (6°F) was measured at Liawenee –located in Tasmania’s Central Plateau– at 6:01am Friday morning, August 7, busting 2013’s -12.2C (10°F).
Weatherzone meteorologist Joel Pippard has confirmed, that Friday’s low was indeed the coldest temperature ever recorded in Tasmania, comfortably beating-out the previous record of -13°C (9°F) set in Tarraleah and Butlers Gorge back in 1983, in books dating back 100 years.
