Spring Chills Persist In South America
The string of spring chills is persisting across the South American continent.
The season is feeling more like a continuation of winter for many nations, with, most recently, frosts logged in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires, most notably at the beach resort town of Mar de Plata with its low of -2.4C (27.7F).
Sub-zeros (C) were also suffered in Las Armas (-1.6C/29.1F), Rauch (-1.4C/29.5F), Tandil (-1C/30.2F), and Azul (-0.4C/31.3F) yesterday, Oct 23, according to @ofimet on Twitter:
The cold is forecast to linger over the coming days, too, and will continue hampering the efforts of local farmers.
In fact, looking to the onset of November, a truly fierce Antarctic blast is on course to traverse the length of the continent, from Southern Argentina to Northern Brazil, further-delaying the arrival of spring 2022:
Rug up, South America — even as the calendar flips to November, winter isn’t done with you yet.
Russia Dips Below -30C (-24F)
Hot on the heels of Canada’s first -30C of the season, Russia has just followed suit.
A low of of -30.6C (-23.1F) was registered in Oymyakon over the weekend; while Delyankir suffered -30.2C (-22.4F) — readings that are some 7C below the late-October norm, as reported by @ThierryGooseBC on Twitter who keeps track of such things.
“Great Snow” Brought Record Winter Spending To New Zealand Resorts
Queenstown experienced a record-breaking winter, with visitor spending significantly higher than in pre-Covid-19 ski seasons thanks, largely, to an abundance of snow, according to data from marketing agency Destination Queenstown.
Destination Queenstown chief executive Mat Woods said the season started with one of the best snowfalls seen in June for a generation, and that it continued to fall thick and fast as the season went on.
From opening day through to closing, conditions were the best he could remember, said Woods.
Likewise, Cardrona Alpine Resort and Treble Cone general manager Laura Hedley said the ski areas experienced wall-to-wall snow over the entire winter.
While NZSki chief executive Paul Anderson confirmed that the June snowfall at the Remarkables and Coronet Peak was one for the history books, with locals describing it as the best snow in at least 30 years.
“It kick-started a bumper season for us in terms of conditions, visitation numbers and open days,” said Anderson.
However, not all New Zealand ski areas enjoyed record-busting accumulations this winter–that’s how it goes.
A lack of snow on the Ruapehu skifields of Tūroa and Whakapapa, combined with a loss of income due to COVID restrictions over the previous two years, actually drove the ski areas’ owner into voluntary administration.
This story, as you’d expect, was blown-up and then some by an AGW-driving establishment. The majority of NZ ski resorts enjoying historically snowy seasons was deemed newsworthy (or inconvenient), but these two closely-sited resorts, co-owned by the same company, suffering poor conditions and an ongoing cash problem were held under the microscope.
This is obfuscation and cherry-picking, at best; agenda-driving fraud, at worst.
And just as dishonest (and laughable), a record-breaking dumping of late-season snow across both South and North islands earlier this month was the time that the nation’s corrupted MSM colluded to run the aforementioned administration story, perhaps hoping it might distract the masses from the anomalous cold and out-of-season snow rapping and tapping at their chamber doors.
The MSM blamed the usual culprit for the closure, of course: cheap and reliable energy, so-called “fossil” fuels, CO2, i.e. — you.
This recalls the ‘increasingly deluded’ ABC’s attempts to dismiss Australia’s bumper snow season just gone:
Australia Forecast Fierce November Cold
Similarly to South America, the models have doubled-down on Australia’s November polar outbreak.
A potentially historic Antarctic blast is on course to invade 90% of the Aussie continent next week.
I’ll let the latest GFS run do the talking:
Rug up, Australia — even as the calendar flips to November, winter isn’t done with you yet, either.
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).
