Tasmanian TV weatherman Peter ‘Murph’ Murphy has told the remote Central Highlands town of Liawenee to ‘stop being so cold’ after it recorded sub-zero temperatures for several days in a row.

“After all the records set last week, Liawenee warmed up to be in positive territory for the entire day. But just the same, we do need to warn Liawenee, you’ve got to stop,” he told viewers on Monday night.


“Enough is enough, just stop with the minus 13s. We get the point, you win,” Murph said.

The veteran presenter thanked a friend for lending him the sign at the end of the weather report, adding he hoped it was not needed for roadworks tomorrow.

Anchor Kim Miller laughed at Murph’s stunt, saying she was hoping he didn’t take the sign from the side of a road.

“I was gonna say, did you steal that? You need to take it back tonight,” she said.

On Thursday last week, Liawenee set a new record low temperature after recording -13.5°C just before 5am.

The temperature, now the coldest ever recorded in the area in July, follows on from -12.9°C on Wednesday and -10.8°C on Tuesday.


Liawenee is set to see slightly warmer temperatures between 1 and 9 degrees tomorrow.
