TASMANIA shivered this morning with Hobart recording its coldest temperature in 12 years.
Snow also fell in Grove, about 30km south of Hobart, today as the mercury there plunged to -5C.
The temperature dropped to just below freezing in Hobart this morning, the lowest since June 6, 1995, when the minimum recorded was -1C.
Bushy Park in the Derwent Valley, in the state's south east, also recorded its lowest temperature for 35 years since June 1972 with -6C.
The lowest temperature recorded was -8.8C at Liawenee in central Tasmania.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) said the cold snap was caused by high pressure systems in the Great Australian Bight and a trough in the southern Tasman Sea.
