AND THE WEATHER IS…
Expect the Central Coast Nats in Tassie to be a cool event, in more ways than one! Ulverstone’s proximity makes it one of the chilliest places on the continent, but just what should you expect in April? Statistics from the Bureau of Meteorology for Devonport, a mere 30km east of Ulverstone, state that the warmest day in April 2021 was 21.5° (April 4) with an overnight minimum of 11.7°. Looking at the overall stats, there were only five days in April, all in the first week, that experienced max temps above 20°, and double digit minimums were equally as rare. While relative humidity averaged between 65 and 80%, a chilly sea breeze can cool things down even more. Be prepared.
