In both Hobart (Ellerslie Road) and Launceston (Airport) the mean, annual, daily minimum temperatures show a warming trend, beginning around 1950. This trend can be partially attributed to an urban 'heat island' developing around the sites, as increased building density leads to higher overnight temperatures.
