Some Tasmanians woke to snow as low as 200 metres this morning after the state was hit by an Antarctic blast.
Bureau of Meteorology's Deb Tabor said Hobart reached a low of 2.9 degrees overnight, which is the coldest November night for the city since 1953. It was recorded at 5:39am.

"The colder south-westerly air was brought up from Antarctica, which brought the chilly conditions," she said.
"This is not unusual for November, we have seen times where snow does fall at this time of year but it's not expected weather."
Snow fell mainly on the southern and south westerly parts of the state, but due to high elevation around 30cm of snow also fell on the Central and Western Plateau areas.
Ms Tabor advised that the snow will not last long, as the weather begins to warm on Tuesday.
"The snow will melt quite quickly as the weather warms up, but will remain for a bit longer in the higher peaked areas."
Tasmania Police advised people to drive with extreme caution in areas affected by snow and ice, put headlights on in reduced visibility and leave extra space with the vehicles in front.
