Mean daily maximum temperatures are above 20C in summer but below 12C in winter. There are about 6 days each year when the temperature exceeds 30C. The highest temperature recorded, 40.8C in January 1976, is also the highest for the state. On some winter days, the temperature has not exceeded 5C. Mean daily minimum temperatures are about 12C in summer and 5C in winter. Temperatures below 0C normally occur only once or twice each year. The lowest temperature recorded in Hobart City was -2.8C in June 1972 and again in July 1981.
