Not just for the date, and not just for the particular location, but the coldest for any date on record, and for the entire country.

Liawenee, in Tasmania’s Central Highlands and already one of the coldest places in Australia, has just broken its own record.

Temperatures dropped to -14.2C (6.4F) yesterday morning, a new record low for the state and even colder than Antarctica .

Michael Lasko from the Bureau of Meteorology said the Liawenee temperature was 2C colder than the town’s previous record low of -12.2C, set back in 2013.

“It looks like that -14.2 is the coldest minimum for all of Tasmania,” Mr Lasko said.

The previous record for Tasmania was -13C at Tarraleah and Butlers Gorge back in 1983.
