A powerful and potentially record-smashing mass of Antarctic is making a beeline for Australia. Temperatures are set to sink well-below average for the time of year, and yet more rare late-season snow is expected.
I can’t quite believe what the latest GFS runs are kicking out — the model, now comfortably within the reliable time-frame, is forecasting multiple bands of nation spanning “light pinks” beginning this weekend:
These colors indicate temperature departures of as much as 24C (yes, that’s 24 degrees Celsius!) below the seasonal average — temps that pose a serious threat to livestock and young, tender crops across the country.
The worst of the cold looks set to hit on October 6, 7, and 8 (shown below).
Take precautionary measures if need be:
Rare October snow is forecast on the peaks of the Stirling Range, located in southern Western Australia, with Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) forecaster Steph Bond saying the best chance of flurries would be late Friday night.
Heavy snow is also forecast to return to the Aussie Alps to the southeast, and even the island state of Tasmania could record some exceptionally rare late-season flurries.
Here’s footage of a troop of Kangaroos in the snow for your viewing pleasure:
This weekend’s incredible wave of Antarctic cold is arriving hot-on-the-heels of last week’s historic blast which saw many regions record “unprecedented spring snow” and their “coldest September temperatures ever”:
Polar outbreaks such as these are only expected to increase and intensify moving forward, as the Grand Solar Minimum continues its ramp-up. Historically low solar activity is weakening the jet streams –in both hemispheres– reverting the streams’ usual tight ZONAL flows to weak and wavy MERIDIONAL ones. These wavy flows ship polar cold to mid-latitudes and replaces it with warmer tropical air (for more, click the link below):
Wrap up Australia.
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. 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 for the COLD— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
