Australian cold snap produces heavy snow, challenges some records

Posted: June 18, 2018 by oldbrew in Natural Variation, weather

Weather report speaks of ‘remarkably heavy early-season snow’ in parts of the Australian alps. Makes a change from tedious climate alarmist whingeing about bits of Western Antarctica ‘melting’.

    Went into detail on the abundance of AU Snowfall over the past decade c/w CSIRO 2003 and other ‘expert’ predictions of diminished to no snow by now….

    Hi Roger,
    A rude of awakening for some who rely on BOM forecaster’s, and their bias intent.
    Jet stream is high mid region with 300 geopotential heights hovering over NSW the 26th see another cold polar swathe dropping Temperature even further.
    Regards TSM.

    Heard (on the ABC of all stations) “Melbourne was today the coldest capital in the world at 3℃”.
    Presumably the overnight minimum and not allowing for the Urban Heat Effect (although the recorder was moved fairly recently to an area exposed to wind).

    This is shocking!

    There’s an “Australian Alps”???

    They are replicas.

    Melbourne Was The Coldest Major City In The Whole World This Morning

    Yup, even parts of Iceland, Alaska and Canada were warmer places to be than the Australian city, located in the state of Victoria, which is no stranger to temperatures above the 40-degree Celsius mark.

    Admittedly, they are just about into their winter at this time of year, but it is still remarkable that Melbourne would be so cold.

    In fact, the whole of Oz is currently having a bit of a cold snap. Temperatures in the Northern Territory dropped below freezing and eventually got down to -3.7C last night. That’s as low as the mercury has dropped in central Australia for two years.

    Southern Australia is having its coldest winter in seven years and Sydney has been battered by hail and rain.

    Never mind, it’s bound to be ‘hotter than ever’ before the end of the year :/

    Judging from past performance the BoM will homogenise the reading for Australia with some readings from an airstrip in the Sahara where the jet exhaust blows over the temp sensor and use those results the declare that June has been the hottest month evah!!

    In other words business as usual in the church of climatology..

    Dear Charles: Pareto Principled Sinopsis
    Australia is now the one country in the world undergoing a profound internal debate […]

    Yet there is also a very critical attitude in some sections of the society towards the whole, occasionally bizarre spectacle. On this issue, like so many others, the society is polarized.

    […]’s money is preferable to certain quarters […] because it comes “without strings attached”. In real life this means that while the EU funds come with strong transparency and accountability requirements – which also means a lot of paperwork – the […] money has no such “strings” and can more easily feed […]

    […] sheer speed […]

    The fact is that [BRI] may be better known, but not much understood, either. 16+1 remains more obscure still, yet it may be the most remarkable development in Europe you have never heard of.

    Interestingly, people tend only to watch the mostly covert […] activity in the region, while ignoring the very overt […] one.

    It is a feat of […]’s diplomacy, simultaneously dividing the already fractured EU and reenacting the East European “bloc” — this time under […], rather than […] tutelage. The reason why it doesn’t get the attention it deserves appears two-fold: First, The EU is preoccupied with so many other pressing problems, from Brexit to migration; Secondly, while Europe obsesses, quite understandably, about Russian meddling, that preoccupation also diverts attention from what might ultimately prove a more consequential development.

    I noticed that you copied the entire Google adjusted URL for the news link. That means Google gathers intel on everyone who clicks it and gets paid. If you just follow the link to the original and use it, those things stop. It is also a much more readable link:

    Snow Down Under: Australian ski resorts celebrate best start to the season in 18 years
    Lucy Aspden, online ski editor
    22 JUNE 2018

    Australian ski resorts are celebrating the best start to the southern-hemisphere ski season in 18 years, with heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures.

    Resorts on the south-eastern coast of the country were hit with blizzard conditions at the start of this week – the storm, which has been nicknamed Stormin’ Norman, battered resorts for six days.

    Severe weather warnings were issued by the Bureau of Meteorology for the regions of Victoria and New South Wales.

    It’s an extreme weather pattern that mimics the series of storms that hit the Alps at the start of last winter. [bold added]

    ABC Weather Report: Forget This Record Cold! Warming Is Real
    Posted on Wed 06/27/2018 by PA Pundits – International

    By Andrew Bolt ~

    Global warming has stalled, and the ABC’s weatherman must report “bitterly cold” weather in New South Wales and likely record low June temperatures for Broken Hill.

    So he breaks off to sternly lecture any backsliders:

    Global warming doesn’t mean that cold temperatures won’t be recorded but rather that record heat temperatures will be far more common.
