Chile’s Chilly August
August 2022 in Chile was another colder-than-average month–barring a handful of locations in the south.
The below graph comes courtesy of DMC Meteochile.
It shows that some regions suffered months a full deg. C below the norm, including Calama and Valdivia.
This year delivered an exceptionally cold and snow winter to Chile.
Back in July, record-smashing snowstorms trapped hundreds of truckers on the border between Argentina and Chile…
…conditions that helped fire South America’s snow extent to all-time highs:
The unprecedented accumulations were captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite (shown below), snowfall that all-but erased a decade-long drought that climate alarmists were only recently caterwauling over. But this is always issue when being led by baseless yet rigid ideologies — that is, egg on your face.
To give some context, the coastal city of La Serena –for example– had a year-to-date rainfall deficit of about 80%, but after July’s snowstorms, the city now has a 64% surplus. And shifting farther inland, Santiago’s rainfall deficit improved from 70% to 27%.
Looking ahead, much of the South American continent is set for additional Antarctic outbreaks, even into the tropics, with nations such as Paraguay, Bolivia, Uruguay, Argentina, southern Brazil, and also Chile set for further polar poundings this week.
Greece Logs Coldest Sept Temp Ever
Exceptional cold has swept the Balkans as well as Northern Greece in recent days.
The Greek town of Florina saw its thermometers drop to -1.4C (29.5F) over the weekend. This was a new record low for September, easily usurping the previous benchmark — the -1C (20.2F) set back in 1977.
While even more impressively, the village of Vovousa recently notched a reading of -1.6C (29.1F), which has entered the books as the lowest temperature ever recorded in a inhabited region of Greece during the month of September.
(Lows Also Fall In Crete)
Low temperature records were also toppled across the Greek Island of Crete.
Tzermiado suffered 1.7C (35F), Embaros observed 3.1C (37.6F), Vryses logged 6.8C. (43F), while Agioi Pantes saw 7.1C (44.8F),
Exceptional lows were registered on Zakyntos Island, with Sarakinado station logging 7.1C.
Record Cold To Blast Australia–As ABC Attempts To Dismiss The Continent’s “Bumper Snow Season”
Fierce cold is set to grip the majority if the Aussie continent this week.
The GFS is forecasting temperature anomalies of as much as -20C below the multidecadal norm for swathes of the country, with feet upon feet of late-season snow clipping the nation’s higher elevations:
While here’s Oct 2:
And Oct 9:
This spring freeze is arriving hot off the heels of a colder-than-average winter Down Under (BoM), during which some locales –such as Queensland’s state capital, Brisbane— suffered their coldest winters in recorded history. And adding the knock-out-blow to the AGW Party’s faltering cLiMaTe ChAnGe narrative is the reality that it was also a historically snowy season across the continent.
Well, that should be the knock-out-blow; frustratingly though, The Party is refusing to admit defeat and is instead returning a few wild, desperate swings — such as this one: “Australia’s bumper snow season conceals a worrying trend,” reads an abc.net.au damage limitation article dated Sept 26.
Apparently, the nation’s maximum snow depth, which indeed indicated a bumper year, “doesn’t tell the entire story.”
Above average snowfall at ALL of Australia’s higher-elevated ski resorts isn’t good enough for the government funded ABC, which seems to suggests that the only way Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming can be avoided is if above average snow depth is registered EVERYWHERE SIMULTANEOUSLY, including at the lower situated resorts.
The ABC article admits that Spencers Creek, which sits at roughly 300m (984ft) above the natural snow line, “has actually seen four above average seasons in the past six” with this year seeing accumulations finish some 65cm (26 inches) above the norm…
…but then the rag switches its focus to Deep Creek which, after a record-breaking start to the 2022 season, closed with a snow depth approximately 29cm (11 inches) below the average:
The ABC states that only one of the past six years at Deep Creek has observed above average snowfall –a tactic known as ‘cherry picking’, given the bumper seasons logged almost everywhere else that compensate (and then some) for the comparatively paltry losses logged at this one small resort– but the rag runs with this misleading claptrap, taking more illogical leaps as it goes.
“Climate change is clearly hurting the lower resorts and lower slopes and based on projections the decline in snow, both peak depth and length of season, is likely to continue and expand to the higher slopes during the coming decades.”
Note how the rag is forced to use projections (i.e. bogus climate models) to draw its ‘catastrophic’ conclusions, rather than the real world data they have at hand which, inconveniently for them, indicates that Australia’s snowfall, overall, has been increasing in recent years.
“A 2017 CSIRO report predicted the Australian season will shrink by at least 20 to 55 days by 2050 and possibly by up to 80 days under a worst-case scenario … While our snow seasons will most likely continue to show high inter-annual variability, the bumper years, particularly for lower resorts are quickly melting away,” concludes the ABC article, completely sidestepping the fact that the now 5-year-old CSIRO report is, given the recent bumper years, already proving hopelessly inaccurate.

Also, yesterday saw yet more bad news hit Europe:
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).
