As reported last week, the icy front forecast to bring snow to the central and northern tablelands of New South Wales (NSW) is still on course to hit this Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures are expected to tumble some 16C below the June average for central and eastern parts of the state. While practically ALL of the Aussie continent should brace for an extreme chill by Wednesday:
Sydney and parts of coastal NSW have already shivered through an exceptionally cold morning on Monday, June 7, with clear skies seeing temperatures plunge to 0.8C in Camden, 1.4C in Lake Macquarie and 2C in Campbelltown — these lows follow Sydney logging its coldest day in 5 years last Thursday.
The cold front will cross into south-west Victoria on Monday night and spread to Melbourne on Tuesday.
“We are predicting snow down to 900m (2,950ft) in the south-west which could mean we get some snow on the peaks of the Grampians,” said Christie Johnson, a duty forecaster with the Bureau of Meteorology.
Heavy snow is also forecast to be down to 1,000m (3,280ft) for the rest of the state on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The cold air is coming up from the “far south,” added Johnson, meaning temperatures will be “much colder than they have been”–as helpful as ever BOM.
The front will reach western NSW on Tuesday morning and Sydney and the coast by Wednesday.
Canberra will touch just 8C (46.4F) on Wednesday.
While Guyra is forecast to struggle to 3C (37.4F) during the day on Thursday, threatening records.
The Antarctic blast will also reach as far north as sub-tropical Queensland.
The likes of Stanthorpe will struggle to just 8C (46.4F) during the day, with a low of -2C (28.4F) forecast overnight.
A severe weather warning has been issued for South Australia’s southern coastal regions as a blast of wintry weather moves across the state.
The BOM has said that a vigorous cold front will move across the west and south bringing significant rain and hail to some regions.
And moving into Tuesday, snow is forecast on the highest peaks in the Flinders Ranges with daily highs unlikely to reach double figures (degrees Celsius).
Looking Further Ahead
Shots of intense polar cold will be the common theme over the next few weeks (at least).
Beginning around June 14, another Antarctic air mass will push into western Australia.
By June 16, the entire continent will be engulfed, and the cold will linger for the foreseeable.
Those “blues” and “purples” look particularly extensive by June 20:
Wrap up Australia.
This, in my book, will go down as your first Grand Solar Minimum winter (of the modern cooling epoch).
Prepare for exceptional lows and snows, and flooding rains.
Natural global warming is long gone.
Ten years ago today, The Sydney Morning Herald ran “The dangers of bone-headed beliefs,” in which they said: “Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.”
Fascists recycle the same ideas over and over again, points out Tony Heller on Twitter:
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-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.
