FROST AND FOG
Frost occurs at the Battery Point site on an average of 25 days each year. It is more common in other locations in the city, such as sheltered valleys that receive little direct sun during winter. Fog occurs in the city on an average of 5 days each year but some suburbs are more susceptible, particularly the northern suburbs such as Austins Ferry, Claremont, Chigwell and Berriedale.
SNOW AND HAIL
Mount Wellington is often capped with snow (especially in winter and spring) but snow falls in Hobart City itself on average only once or twice a year. It is even rarer for this snow to settle on the ground. Hail occurs on average 3 days a year, mostly in spring.
