Cold Weather Sweeps Tasmania, Frost Warnings Issued

Autumn might have only just begun, but it will feel more like winter for parts of Tasmania over the next few days, reads the opening paragraph of an examiner.com.au article.

According to the BOM, a frontal band is expected to cross the state on Tuesday driving temperatures to as low as four degrees resulting in inland frosts.

Frost warnings are in place for Wednesday morning.

The well-below-average temps come after Tasmania recorded its second-warmest summer on record — yet another example of the swings between extremes brought on by this next Grand Solar Minimum.

The sun is currently entering its deepest solar minimum in over 100 years.

As the sun loses energy, so do the jet streams. Their usual strong ‘Zonal’ flow (a west–east direction) reverts to more of a weak and wavy ‘Meridional’ flow (a north-south direction).

This explains why regions become unseasonably hot or cold and others unusually dry or rainy, with the extremes lasting for an extended period of time.

As the sun enters its deep hibernation state, north and south poles are also migrating.

These two independent factors –GSM + Pole Shift– each result in a dramatic waning of our magnetosphere, the upshot of which is more Cosmic Rays entering our atmosphere affecting biology on the planet, sending volcanoes a’popping and nucleating clouds (Svensmark).

“Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade, and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming — or global cooling,”  — Dr. Roy Spencer.

The cold times are already here.
