Cold wave in Australia – Snow near Adelaide

Heaviest July rainfall in 75 years

The cold has gone to the city of Adelaide, where the maximum temperature was only 11 ° C (51.8°F), the rain was the biggest in the last 75 years in July, and snow is falling on the hills behind of the city.

The snow whitewashed abundantly Mount Lofty, which lies about 710 meters above sea level and about 15 km (9 miles) east of the city.

  1. The Obama Administration is now attacking large companies who argue against Global Warming. This is of course nothing more that a political grab for money from lawsuits the govt scientific community will support with bogus scientific reports they will be paid well to produce in support of govt lies and misrepresentations.
    I hope those scientists realize they are producing reports the govt will hide behind when the cold comes. When the public blames the govt for the many deaths the scientists themselves will be put in the hot seat and blamed for the errors in those reports. Maybe they should consider Govt money a death trap to their credibility and future.

  2. The alarmists are going haywire because they know there time is up and are about to get the shit humiliated out of them!

  3. To follow through with previous postings, Adelaide, South Australia, is 35 degrees south of the equator.
    Lets compare, Nashville, Tulsa, Knoxville, Raleigh, are all close to 35 degrees north.
    Do any of these cities get snow in winter, I would think so.
    I try very hard to compare oranges with oranges, with variation’s taken into consideration.
    I don’t think any of these cities are on the coast, so of course that makes a difference, as does the altitude above sea level, I have not taken that into consideration.
    I really continue to wonder as a laywoman, these soo called scientists with their big pay packets and a list of PH’s after their names and not a drop of common sense, even I can figure at that all sorts of variable’s come into play when you are looking at global warming, and not just a few cherry picked that support your claims.

    • Snow in ANY Australian capital city is very rare – except Hobart – and that is rare.

      Australia is a large land mass but is isolated in oceans and totally north of 44 degrees S. Compare this to say Oregon in the US with the huge land mass of Canada and Alaska extending to the Arctic while below Tasmania there is only ocean with nothing to interfere with warm ocean currents heading south.

      It is difficult to compare an isolated land mass in the southern ocean to the significantly larger land masses extending into the Arctic circle in the northern hemisphere.

  4. The weather report on the news called it a “cold snap”. This is code speak for move along folks nothing to see here global warming will be back soon.

    Its like the expert on TV who claimed the quiet sun plays no role on climate and a small increase in s trace gas is more powerful than that giant fusion reactor. Adelaide people are rather dumb due to their isolation I suppose.

  6. oh yes there WILL come a day of reckoning to “explain” how they managed to get it utterly WRONG!
    and boy am I for one going to get the popcorn and enjoy seeing the “scientists” in court..alonmg with hopefully Ohbummer and Gore Hansen and the rest..the mann-ikin especially

  7. No big deal. When I first moved into this area 30 some years ago, 350 kilometers north of Adelaide, we used to get a little snow on the, not very high, mountains near us every year. And though I’m not a global warming fanatic I think I should mention that we haven’t been seeing snow on those mountains for quite a few years . . . . . this one included . . . . . so far.

    • ……except the mountain range in that area is 4,708 ft high whereas the Adelaide hills are merely 1000ft (just barely). Snow down to 1000ft is near impossible at 35 degrees Latitude. Worlds apart.

      • The summit of Mt. Lofty is 710 meters, according to this article. 737 meters according to Wikipedia.

        • correction . . . . . Wiki number is 727 meters . . . . .
          also, the summit of Mt. Remarkable, the highest peak in this area is 3, 150 feet or 960 meters . . . .

          • sorry about having to make yet another addition!!
            But, thought I’d better mention Mt. Lofty is a peak in the Adelaide Hills.

  8. A low pressure system has formed over the ocean off South Australia the likes of which I have never seen but behind it is a “Polar chill”. This is a term never before used in a forecast by the BOM as far as I know, it will reach as a far as Sydney keeping in mind that city is not so far from the Tropic of Capricorn! Damaging winds and rain with a flood watch for SA.
    The big chill will arrive Tuesday.
    These forecasts and systems are commonplace worldwide ……..but not here.
