Frosty on NSW Southern Tablelands but warm in Tasmania
Clear skies and a dominant high pressure system again produced very low minimum temperatures across the southern NSW high country this morning. Charlotte Pass recorded its third sub-minus 10 morning in a row with a reading of -13.7, while Goulburn Airport, situated on low river flats south of the city, reported -10.2. Cooma Airport, about 10km west of the town, recorded -9.6, and an unofficial reading of -14 came from Berriedale, in high flat country between Cooma and the Snowy Mountains.

A relatively warm (for June) northwesterly stream produced southern Tasmania's warmest June day for 5 years. The Hobart Bureau of Meteorology weather station in Ellerslie Road recorded a top of 18.9, 7.1 above average, and the highest since the same temperature was recorded in June 1995. Hobart City's record high for June is only 20.1.
