A family's Hobart holiday goes from 40C to snow in 24 hours Adrian Van Beek when his family decided to escape the hot Brisbane summer and take a holiday in Hobart but when they arrived, they were hit by opposite extremes. Hobart's temperatures spiked at 40C (104 deg F) last Friday, close to its hottest ever day of 41.8C in 2013. "On the first day, we'd planned to go up the mountain, but it was so hot that we couldn't," Mr Van Beek told Nine.com. The next day, Mr Van Beek and family set off to enjoy a cooler day only to get caught in major snowfall and temperatures of -1C (30 deg F), on Mount Wellington overlooking Hobart. "When we drove up we saw there was snow already on the trees and on the grass, and then this cloud just came over us and we couldn't see anything, it was completely white, and 10 minutes later it was snowing," he said. "We were able to pick up the snow and throw it at each other." 9News
