Ski areas in Australia have logged more than 60cm (2 feet) of snowfall over the past few days, while rare settling flakes have also been reported in many low-lying regions.
According to inthesnow.com, “a super storm has been dumping on the country’s ski slopes since Wednesday, with increasing intensity in terms of the amount of snow falling every 24 hours.”
Residents in Katoomba, Blackheath, and Mount Victoria have experienced significant snowfall with street, parks, and homes buried under a blanket of white; while dozens of additional towns and cities have also reported healthy, and at times rare, accumulations:
It comes as temperatures plummet 12C below the seasonal average across large parts of Australia, as a brutal Antarctic air mass blasts the country’s east.
Goulburn, north of Canberra, may not see the mercury reach double digits until next week. While Canberra itself is on for its coldest day in at least four years, and has already witnessed a few flurries of global warming goodness.
“The Antarctic air will continue to spread over southeastern Australia between now and Sunday,” Weatherzone meteorologist Ben Domensino said. Snowfall is forecast to surpass a metre (3.3 feet) before the weekend is out, and “a few places may even witness rare thundersnow,” added Domensino.
Oh, and looking forward: a potentially monster system (putting this one to shame) is currently on course to batter the ENTIRE Aussie continent as the calendar flips to September. The forecast is within the unreliable time-frame, and so needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but it certainly warrants close attention; a polar blast as powerful and wide-reaching as this one could rewrite the record books.
Stay tuned for updates.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Even NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
