The tiny Otago town of Middlemarch registered a record-busting -12.3C (9.9F) this morning, Sunday June 14 — New Zealand’s coldest June temperature since 2015 and Middlemarch’s lowest reading since 2001, according to data from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric (Niwa).
NZ’s second-coldest spot this morning was the -9.9C (14.2F) a few hundred miles west of Middlemarch in Clyde — a low that has entered the books as that town’s coldest June temp since 1978 (solar minimum of cycle 20).
The next coldest places, according to Niwa, were Ranfurly at -9C (15.8F), Alexandra at -8.2C (17.2F) and Lauder at -7.9C (17.8F) — lows not matched for decades.
The record cold has meant the heavy low-level snow that fell last weekend has lingered, reports stuff.co.nz.
Looking ahead, warmer conditions are expected to push in on Monday and Tuesday –conditions that will no doubt get the AGW cabal banging their hippy drums– but another, this time longer-lasting, Antarctic blast looks set to be whipped-up on Wednesday night and will encompass both North and South islands by Thursday.
Even NASA agrees, in part at least, 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.
