In the highlands, above 900 metres, snow can occur at any time of the year. Heaviest snowfalls tend to occur in July and August. Extensive snow below 150 metres occurs less than once every two years on average, associated with a vigorous outbreak of cold air from the deep south. There is no permanent snowline, but patches of snow often remain on the highest peaks until December. In Hobart City itself snow falls on average only once or twice a year.
