Punishing Cold Breaks 167-Year-Old Records In Australia, + An Early Arctic Freeze Traps 20+ Ships In Unusually Thick Sea Ice

Thank you for all the kind messages re my road trip back to the UK from Portugal.

Regarding the actual journey: I don’t want to talk about it. Ha. France has lost the plot: 1) On stopping for food we were told we weren’t allowed to eat unless we were fully vaccinated–so we went hungry, and 2) at the ferry port, my answer of ‘not declared’ when asked by the cheese-eating surrender monkeys on passport control if I was vaccinated –a valid option on the UK’s ‘entry/locator form’– got us parked up in the ‘naughty corner’ where we were left to ponder why we hadn’t just given in and accepted an experimental drug for a virus that statistically won’t impact us.

We were finally allowed onto the ferry after showing negative PCR tests (which is something I attempted to do off the bat), but not before being told that France would prefer it if we didn’t return anytime soon–I think because the UK is on their ‘amber list’ (a political move). And this is fine by me. We’ll catch the ferry direct to Spain on the return leg. Because although sailing the Bay of Biscay is a choppy, vomit-inducing nightmare, it’s preferable than having to deal with the insanity going on in France right now.

Punishing Cold Breaks 167-Year-Old Records Across Australia

The seasons have gone “topsy-turvy” down under as a blistering Polar front sweeps the vast majority of Australia, just two weeks out from summer.

Much of the continent is suffering punishing temperate departures of 8-18C below the seasonal norm:

The exceptional chill is taking down long-standing records across the country.

The Tasmanian capital of Hobart, for example, just shivered through its chilliest November low in 60 years. The mercury in the city sank to 2.9C (37.2F) at dawn on Monday — the coldest November night since 1953 (solar minimum of cycle 18). And Kunanyi/Mt Wellington, which overlooks Hobart, bottomed out at -5.8C at 4.30am — the third coldest November temperature ever recorded in Tasmania.

Melbourne recently logged its coldest November day since 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 24), with that reading (of 14C/57.2F) surpassed on Monday when a high of just 13.5C/56.3F was observed.

Most impressively though, some locales have just endured a late-season cold spell not seen for more than 160 years.

As reported by weatherzone.com.au, Melbourne’s maximum temperatures during the last four days have held well-below the long-term November average of 22C (71.6C), reaching 14C/57.2F on Friday, 14.6C/58.3F on Saturday, 15.3C/59.4F on Sunday, and, as mentioned above, 13.5C/56.3F on Monday. This is the first time in 167 years of records that Melbourne has had four days below 15.5C (59.9F) this late in spring.

While further north, Canberra’s last three days have held around 10C below the seasonal average — the first time in 99 years of record-keeping that Australia’s capital city has suffered three days at or below 14C/57.2F this late in spring.


“The winter chill is here … two weeks out from summer,” said Sky News Weather meteorologist Alison Osborne, who dubbed the event “snowvember”. The late-season snow has indeed been exceptional, with heavy flurries accumulating not only on Tasmania’s peaks but down at sea level, too.

And it’s not done yet, added Osborne: “The cold front itself is moving out to sea; however, cool south-westerly winds in its wake will maintain showers, snow, and also make for another chilly day for many elsewhere around the country.”


Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Miriam Bradbury said the Antarctic front would continue to impact the state of Victoria on Monday and Tuesday “because that very cold air mass that’s associated with the front is still sort of streaming across the state”.

Victoria’s snow level dropped down to below 1000m (3280ft) early on Monday.

“It has been abnormally cold,” admitted the BOM’s Bradbury. “We will continue to see pretty wintry conditions. Maximum temperatures today (Monday) aren’t expected to be very high, generally 8-12C below the November average.”

An Early Arctic Freeze Traps 20+ Ships In Unusually Thick Sea Ice

More than 20 vessels are either stuck or struggling to make it through increasingly thick sea-ice on the Northern Sea Route.

In recent years, ships traversing Russia’s northern coast have had a relatively easy time of it in late-Oct/early-Nov — but trends change, and this year, as our planet continues its descent into its next bout of global cooling, the ice is re-freezing early and quickly.

Large parts of the remote Arctic waters were covered in thick sea-ice by late October, reports thebarentsobserver.com: “and the white sheet is quickly getting thicker and harder to navigate,” continues the article.

Ice maps show that major parts of the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea are already covered by ice more than 6 inches thick. While over the East Siberian Sea, there are vast areas with 28 inches thick one-year ice, as well as 80 inches thick multi-year ice.

Sea-ice on the Northern Sea Route, Oct 31 – Nov 2 [aari.ru]


Among the ships located on the eastern part of the route are two oil tankers and a significant number of bulk carriers, including three ships bringing iron ore from the Canadian Milne Island to China, and two carrying iron ore from Murmansk.

Several other ships have made course changes in order to attempt to circumvent areas with the fastest advancing ice.

Dutch heavy lift vessel Poolgracht, for example, is transporting cargo for Novatek’s natural gas project ‘Arctic LNG 2’ and had to wait for an icebreaker near the Vilkitsky Strait. The vessel is now sailing westwards in a convoy escorted by nuclear icebreaker Taymyr. In that same convoy are the UHL Flash and UHL Faith.

For a full break down of the ships in trouble –including two sailing from China that have spent the past two weeks “zig-zagging’ their way through the unusually thick sea ice– check out the thebarentsobserver.com article in full.


Furthermore, the majority of the vessels don’t have permission to sail in thick sea ice without icebreaker assistance, and they will end up violating Russian shipping regulations if they can’t leave the region soon. At least one ship has already exceeded its time limit on the route — the Andrei Pervozvanny, an oil tanker, only had permission to sail in the area until Nov 9.

The adverse conditions are also concerning for Russian authorities who are promoting the Northern Sea Route as a future alternative to the Suez Canal. This, for obvious reasons, is a non-starter.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.


Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    Welcome back to blighty … but you must be mad coming to a place that’s rapidly turning into a 3rd world totalitarian state.
    Wales is following Austria’s lead on covid passes

    From 15/11/21 NHS Covid passes will now be needed to enter cinemas, theatres and concert halls in Wales; but all ready talk of extending to ‘hospitality’ before Xmas & many people calling for internment … yellow stars next ? ?

    1. Petrichor

      The account of your journey home is instructive and valuable; I’m glad you recorded it here.

    2. Cap Allon

      I’m only here for six weeks. Hopefully I can get out again.

    Abnormally Cold!!!
    Yes, even in South West Florida Sarasota County, FL USA!!!

    Since 8 March 2021 when I picked up an infrared temp gun
    https://www.harborfreight.com/121-infrared-laser-thermometer-63985.html
    I have been taking Pre-Dawn Sky temp measurements daily.
    I simply stand away from the house 150 feet pointing the gun at the sky, taking the temp at several points.
    TODAY 15 NOV 2021 WAS THE COLDEST TEMP OF THE YEAR!!
    Previous low was 0.0 F back on 8 Mar, same as yesterday Sunday 14 Nov!

    Today was a WHOPPING MINUS 14 F, with a ground temp of 44 F.

    Closer to the house things warmed up to 48 F, and under the tree 58.
    On days like this I put a jacket on, and tell locals “It looks like we need to move south to Florida to stay warm”!! HaHa…..we ARE in Florida!!! LOL
    This is True, DS

  3. Marc

    Insightful thanks, but Is the title correct “Arctic” or should it be Antarctic?

  4. Nostradopus

    I’m sure once all Australians are vaccinated, the weather will return to normal.

  5. Joe

    Global Warming sure is a bitch, eh?
    This just proves that the SUN ALONE is responsible for “climate change”. Don’t let the eco-hucksters and their slavish politicians fool you with guilt about man’s responsibility for this.

  6. Adellad

    Here in Adelaide (NW of Melbourne and Hobart, 35 degrees South, 138 East) it has also been cold, 5-10 degrees C below average for more than a week now. Of course the incurious media just make a joke or two and move on – had it been over a week of hot weather the screeching would have been audible on that ferry.

  7. In Canberra. Can confirm its cold, not to mention wind chill. Nice and sunny today though but still cold. I have jacket on.

      There has been a lot more stuff going on on this planet than our keepers have allowed us to know.
      The internet is a two-edged sword. It’s both a means of control and a means of waking people up. If the PTB keep killing off their useful idiots with the vax, the balance may shift in our favor.p

    2. Fran

      Very interesting, thanks!
      Probable explanation: sea levels were much higher than now during the Holocene Optimum, some 6,000 years ago.

      1. The variability of sea levels past and present around the world is clarified by the sea level expert at the 2000 UN IPCC, Dr. Nils-Axel Moerner, who quit the panel saying they claim scientific consensus for political reasons–as many other whistleblowers did. https://redpilluniversity.org/2019/02/12/un-ipcc-scientist-debunks-un-climate-lies/
        He also explains the origin of the UN CO2 dictate as Sweden’s plan to move to nuclear from fossil fuels, as well as the overall political picture.

    It must be really annoying, especially as driving through France used to be one of the easiest things to do. Travelling past London from Manchester to Folkstone was and still is a nightmare and we always breathed a breath of relief when we made it onto the Chunnel train because French roads are almost empty compared to England.

    Since Brexit,though, the French seem very angry with the Brits, which is their choice and right but all I can say is Brits are not going there in such numbers and many have stopped buying French goods including wine. After all why should we when Australian and Californian wine is often cheaper and better.

    Remember, the (mini) ice age has not truly arrived until all the snow/cold records we are breaking are from LAST YEAR, not 100 years ago.

    1. Wizard

      Yippie! Can’t wait for the snow to bury all the covidiots/sheeple who also believe that the snow is a sign of AGW

      1. Deb

        Yes, they probably also believe that their solar panels and windmills, tho covered in 30′ of snow, will continue to provide them with plenty of heat and power. Give me an excess of trees any day!

        1. Deb

          On the other hand, those same gullible people are probably stepping up for vax after vax. Unlikely they will have to deal with any ice age issues.

          1. Wizard

            It kinda goes hand in hand, people falling for one agenda fall for the other, but it needn’t be the case (myself being the best most recent example of someone not aware of the inverse-climate-change theory that answers a lot more questions than the main-pushed AGW one, if you can call it a theory at that)
            Besides trees, have you given much thought to water powering your electricity needs?

            From what I understand, Sun will be in short supply as time goes on, and wind will be even less predictable to be harvested, but WATER, WATER we will have in ALL FORMS, ABUNDANCE of it…

          2. Deb

            Water has to be running to produce energy. I suppose some places will have wet water, and if they also have an incline-voila, energy!

            But I don’t see any way to draw energy from frozen water. Unless you could somehow harness the motion of glaciers, lol.

          3. Deb

            I wonder how much juice you could produce by setting up a small water mill under the downspout from your roof, if you lived in a particularly rainy area. Maybe enough to power some 12V RV type appliances, not enough to heat with.

          4. Deb

            Years ago, I designed an A-frame tiny home (before tiny homes were cool) , covered with solar panels and wired with strictly 12V. I lived in my van for 3 years, which I turned into a mini RV on the inside, but it was powered by the van’s generator. Since I was homeless, I had to move several times a day, thus charging my batteries
            The cost of gas would be prohibitive now.

          5. Wizard

            I have some ideas on that I yet need to prove either true or false. If I’m right, every need can be met with water, and if I’m wrong, then water can power anything besides the stove/washing machine/power tools. I’ll have to get back to you on that, though.

          6. Deb

            I have a little washing machine I can lift with one hand. It takes 5 gallons of h2o to wash and 4 to rinse. It spins pretty dry. It’s 120V, but I don’t think the wattage is very high. It’s amazing, really.
            As for power tools, why couldn’t you hook up an inverter to the cigarette lighter in your car ( or directly to the battery) and just run the car while you’ re using the tools?
            Lights, radio, TV, computer and even a fan don’t take much juice. If you have a source of running water, you could charge up a bank of forklift batteries and have plenty for that kind of stuff. I’m not sure about refrigeration. Might be better to dig an old- time well, the kind you can lower a bucket into. But there are all sorts of refers available, so you might find something that suits-if supplies don’t halt completely.

  11. Thank you so much for your essential work. I must mention that, in addition to the solar shift, weather war and geo-engineering have massive impacts on planet systems. Dr. Rosalie Bertell’s book, Planet Earth: the Latest Weapon of War, details the impacts of electromagnetic weapons since their development at the end of the second world war. The power and global reach of those weapons controlling weather–US, Russia, China, and European nations taking part– is now beyond belief. I wonder how weather warfare may be interacting with the solar shift.

  12. Bemused Bill

    In Sydney, the day before that front arrived I made a bet with an ABC person that her claim that we were about to have a “long hot summer” was erroneous…but failed to get money on it….my experience is leftists don’t pay up anyway when they lose…which is always because they don’t read outside their propaganda.
    It was certainly cool however, as has been the past winter and the previous summer was short and cool.
    Has everyone noticed how the loons insist a La Nina is a cyclical weather event…but an El Nino is Global Warming?
