State Of Victoria Suffers Coldest-Ever November Temperature As Polar Outbreak Sweeps Australia

Australian’s record-breaking polar outbreak is, for many, still refusing to dissipate.

Adding to the slain *monthly* records from earlier in the week –and to the hundreds felled since the commencement of winter– a myriad more were set on both Wednesday and Thursday, including the handful listed below:

The cherry, however, was undoubtedly taken by Mount Hotham with its Wednesday low of -7C (19.4F). According to BoM record keeping, this is the lowest November temperature ever record in the state of Victoria, usurping the -6.8C, also set at Hotham, in 2006.

The anomalous chill has extended into Friday, too, particularly across the Southeast.

Melbourne Centre sank to 7.2C (45F) this morning, with 4.4C (39.9F) logged at the Airport — the coldest readings so late in the season since 1977 (solar minimum of cycle 20).

Cold Records Begin Tumbling Across U.S.

The freeze and blizzards are intensifying across the United States.

Over the past 24-hours (08:00 UTC Nov 17 – 07:00 UTC Nov 18) low temperature benchmarks are beginning to fall/be challenged across the length and breadth of the country, from Washington State to Florida — as visualized by the graphic below:

The heavy, disruptive snow will likely claim the majority of the weather headlines –with 6ft expected in Buffalo (see below tweets)– but the plummeting temps are proving equally noteworthy — they would be considered cold even in the depths of winter, let alone mid-November.

“This is shaping up to be potentially one the most extreme snowstorms in US history.”

As a result, a ‘Winter Storm State Of Emergency’ has been declared.

Wednesday brought America its snowiest Nov 16 on record, and I think it’s fair to assume Friday will bring its snowiest Nov 18.

We’re also waiting on an update of the FMI’s ‘Total snow mass for the Northern Hemisphere‘ chart, which, for the season to date, has posted datapoints above both the 1982-2012 mean and the standard deviation:


Further headaches for the AGW Party; more questions for them to field.

Below-Average Octobers For Caribbean Islands

It was an anomalously-cool October 2022 across the Caribbean.

October in Barbados, for example, had an average temperature of 27.95C (82.3F), which is 0.9C below the multidecadal average.

While in nearby Curacao had an average temperature of 28.2C (82.8C), which is 0.6C below the norm.

My Weekend

Personally, I’m now headed out to begin work on a new animal enclosure, and thin my turnips and carrots.

The collapse is quickening, in my humble opinion — between the record lows and the historic snows, make hay.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

Social Media channels are restricting Electroverse’s reach: Twitter are purging followers, while Facebook are labeling posts as “false” and have now locked me out of my account. And most recently, the CCDH stripped the website of its ability to advertise with Google.
