This Morning, Australia Set Its Coldest-Ever December (And Summer) Temperature
Australia has set a new biggie of a cold record.
Following a colder-than-average-winter (coldest-ever for the likes of Brisbane) and coldest spring in decades (coldest-ever November for many locales, including Forbes and Ivanhoe), the Aussie continent has now suffered its lowest-ever December (and summer) temperature.
On the Friday morning, Dec 9, the climate station at Perisher Valley touched -7C (19.4F), according to data provided by the warm-mongering Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). This ties the lowest temperature ever recorded in Australia in December (set at Charlotte Pass, Dec 20, 1999), and even more impressively, equals the continent’s lowest ever summer temperature (Perisher Valley, Dec 17, 1979).
Contrary to The Narrative, Australia is cooling, fast — this is irrefutable.
Precipitation levels are also jarring with the cLiMaTe SiEnCe consensus, particularly across the SE .
The incessant rains, as well as the record-breaking, late-season snows, are linked to cooling in the eastern Pacific Ocean. This climatic setup has resulted in a rare third La Niña, and it’s feared that this phenomenon might not abate anytime soon, perhaps lasting 5-10 years, a few decades, “or even a century or longer,” so says UW atmospheric scientist, Robert Wills.
And so it stands, despite The Models arrogantly decreeing that it would be El Niño conditions that would be the dominate ENSO setup in an ever-warming world, it is in fact its colder sister La Niña that is winning out — the climate models got it wrong, again.
For more on that:
Australia’s frosty 2022 has been driven by relentless pulses of polar air escaping the Antarctic ice sheet. These outbreaks, in turn, are the result of a low solar activity-induced ‘meridional’ jet stream flow.
In short, waning solar output reduces the energy entering the jets. This reverts their usual straight ZONAL flow to a weak and wavy MERIDIONAL one. A region’s weather is determined by which ‘side’ of the jet stream it’s on. If it is located ‘above’ (in the NH) then it’s in for a spell of unseasonably cold conditions, as it is open to influxes of Arctic air; while conversely, if the region is ‘under’ the jet stream then it’s set for anomalously hot conditions, being subject to air masses dragged up from the tropics.
For the ‘long version’, click below:
Australia’s exceptionally cloudy conditions —another factor of low solar activity— helped hold maximum temperatures well-below the norm by blocking sunlight.
And on that point, Hunga Tonga’s record-high mesospheric eruption earlier in the year is undoubtedly another contributor.
November In The U.S. Was 2F Below Average, Coldest Across NW In 4-Decades
According to data just in from NOAA, November 2022 in the United States (Lower 48) was colder-than-average.
The temperature, as per the government agency, averaged out at 40.95F, which is 2.03F below the multidecadal norm.
America’s cooling helped drive the overall global average temperature down last month, from 0.32C to 0.17C above baseline.

It was particularly cold in the Western and Central states.
In fact, again according to NOAA, many Pacific Northwest locals suffered their coldest months of November in 4-decades.
But the East wasn’t spared, not by any means.
A historic lake-effect snowstorm slammed western and northern New York through Nov 16-20, dropping an astonishing 6+ feet of snow onto the likes of Buffalo, totals that bested a string of all-time snowfall records, even surpassing the Blizzard of 1977.
The Lower 48 also suffered its snowiest Nov 16 on record last month, when 41.1% of the CONUS had snow on the ground
A quick word on Alaska: Anchorage residents are still shoveling out from of a massive snowstorm that delivered more than 2 feet to parts of the town earlier this week.
The National Weather Services has confirmed that the snowstorm was a record-breaker, with Anchorage logging its largest-ever single-day snowfall for Dec 6: the official reading being the 10.4 inches at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Tuesday’s snow also made it the snowiest December day since 1999, according to the NWS: “The only ones that were larger were actually consecutive days in 1955, which was our biggest snowstorm on record,” said meteorologist Brian Brettschneider.
Also, the official measuring site –the airport– actually posted the lowest snowfall figures in town, pointed out Brettschneider: “I had 20 inches, and I’m by the Fred Meyer on Abbott,” he said. “And just up past Service High, a coworker had 25 inches.”
The snow is forecast to return as early as Sunday, according to NWS meteorologist Michael Kutz.
“In the interim, we’re going to be dealing with some colder temperatures,” said Kutz. “Here on the west side of town, generally zero to five above. Over on the east side, it could get as cold as 15 below, and that also extends up to the Eagle River area.”
With regards the snow: “We’re still juggling with the numbers, because we’re getting some conflicting data coming through from the models,” said Kutz. “Some of them could be seeing 6+ inches coming in Monday into Tuesday.”
“Longest” Severe Weather Warning In UK Extended Again, As Europe’s Arctic Outbreak Intensifies
This week, Europe has been enduring early-season chills of late; one that is forecast to intensify as December progresses.
Parts of the UK, for example, have been experiencing heavy snows with lows sinking to -10C (14F) and beyond in some isolated spots, readings that are not too far off the lowest-ever temperature for the time of year in books dating back to the 1800s (the lowest for Dec 10 being the -14.4C/6.1F set at Carnwath, Scotland in 1967, which could be broken tomorrow).
Across Scotland, a Met Office warning for ‘snow/ice’ has been extended for more that four days, seeing it surpass the ‘extreme heat’ warning issued back in August (‘extreme heat’ in the minds of today’s MO meteorologists is in the low-to-mid 30s (86-95F).
Met Office chief meteorologist Steve Willington warned there was an “increasing risk of snow ” as we enter the weekend.
He said: “As an Arctic, maritime air-mass settles across the UK, temperatures will fall with widespread overnight frosts, severe in places, and daytime temperatures only a few degrees above freezing.”
With more snow forecast to fall in the coming weeks, safety organisations are coming together to encourage people to “ThinkWinter” and ensure those heading for the hills and mountains can easily access the right information and advice on safety.
But even heating a UK home is proving difficult this season, given cripplingly-high energy prices due to the insistence of our globalist-appeasing ‘leaders’ to drastically reduce energy production under the fraudulent guise of ‘saving the planet’.
These treacherous, murderous bastards will get what’s coming to them, but likely, and tragically, not before hundreds-of-millions of innocent souls have frozen to death (if not this winter, then next).
The longer range temperature outlook isn’t looking good in that regard (i.e. for Europe’s gas reserves), with it calling for some truly Baltic conditions later in the month, particularly for Central and Eastern nations:
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 (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).
