1986 ..Major widespread snow event
“ON the morning of July 25, 1986, southern Tasmania was greeted by white gold as snow fell down to sea level.
Snowfalls of 8cm were recorded in the morning
“I did the ABC weather on the night of the 24th and we were forecasting snow to fall to low levels,” he said. “By the time I had left the studio later that night the Southern Outlet and a bunch of other roads had been closed and I had to go through the Channel Highway, Gordon, and Cygnet just to get to the Huon.”
Dr Pook said the snow day was a rare event that resulted after air came up from Antarctica and passed over Tasmania.
