Snow In Three Aussie States Just Days Out From Summer (A Foot In The Mountains)
Another out-of-season polar blast is delivering yet more record snowfall to Australia, despite summer being just days away.
Ski resorts in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania have reported their heaviest falls since the end of the snow season back in October.
Perisher, NSW reported 25 cm (10 inches) of fresh snowfall overnight Tuesday, which takes the latest powder-dump to a 42cm (16.5 inches).
While in nearby Thredbo, residents woke to subzero temperatures and 16cm (6 inches) of snow, with more of both on the cards throughout the remainder of the week.
Headed further south, Mount Buller, Victoria logged 19 cm (7.5 inches) overnight, with the snow still coming down as of the morning. The resort’s 2-day total now stands at a record-breaking –for the time of year– 30 cm (1 foot).
All this snowfall is delaying the start of many summer alpine activities.
Descending the mountain, and heading into Melbourne, the nation’s capital has now endured three days of “exceptional cold” in November — for the first time in 57 years.
And not forgetting Tasmania, Mt Mawson saw 19 cm (7.5 inches) of snow overnight, with yet more expected later in the week.
Similarly in New Zealand, unseasonable snow flurries have been noted there, too.
Nunavut Breaks November Cold Record
Arctic chills have been felling hundreds of records across the North American continent of late, including up north.
Eureka, Nunavut has been suffering through days of severe cold now.
After logging an astonishing -44.3C (-47.7F) on Saturday –its lowest Nov temp since 1989 and the coldest so early in the month since 1983– on Tuesday, the locale went and broke its monthly record for the lowest windchill with a low of -61.3C (-78.3F).
Scandinavia Snow Causes “Havoc”
Following the snow warnings in Sweden –that I reported on Monday (link below)– a snowy start to the week has been noted in Denmark, too.
Traffic jams and stranded vehicles were the theme on the nation’s roads during the first ‘proper’ snowfall of the season.
The Island of Møn received around 20 cm (7.9 inches) of the white stuff on Sunday alone, adding to that as the new week progressed.
Much of India is under ‘cold wave conditions’ with the mercury plunging to record-busting levels in some regions.
The minimum temperature in Delhi fell below 9C (48.2F) on both Monday and Tuesday — readings some 4C below the seasonal norm. According to local weather reports, the temperature is expected dip below 8C (46.4F) in the coming mornings.
The drop in temperature is fueled by the anomalously-cold northwesterly winds driving down off the Himalayas.
Mumbai dipped to 17C (62.6F) this week which almost 5C below the average, and, more tellingly, is the city’s lowest November reading in since 2016’s 16.3C (61.3F).
As with Delhi, the mercury is forecast to fall further in the coming days, likely breaking longer-standing records — a scenario that has already struck Bengaluru, which on Monday logged its lowest November temperature in more than decade with a low of 13.9C (57F).

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).
