Snow, possible hail incoming

weather

Tasmania is bracing for another icy blast of weather.

Authorities are asking for bushwalkers to exercise extreme caution, after last week's dramatic rescue operations around Cradle Mountain.

Snowfalls are expected for areas as low as 400 metres in southern parts of the state, and 600 metres in the north.

We've already had about 20 millimetres of rain in the north and west in the 24 hours leading up to 9am this morning, with another 15 millimetres expected for the rest of today in the same regions.

The cold and wet conditions means hail is a very real possibility for nearly all the state's major population centres.

Minor flood warnings are also active.
