Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for the month of January,1871.
The year 1871 opened with weather of a very anomalous character, there
being a considerable covering of snow on Mount Wellington, and a fresh cold
south-east wind, with sprinkles of rain. Nevertheless, the mean temperature
of the whole month was above the average, and nearly every other of the records
departed more or less from the adopted mean. On the whole, this month
following the very dry one of December—was not very favourable to health
and life, the deaths being within a trifle of the 14 years' average.
