Unprecedented spring snow hits parts of Australia as multiple regions suffer coldest September on record

Out-of-season snow is burying parts of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales as the Grand Solar Minimum ramps-up its intensification.

The spring snowfall is incredibly rare, even unprecedented in some areas. Lismore and Lake Bolac in Victoria’s Western Districts, for example, saw snow accumulate to as low as 200 metres today–with more to come.

“They don’t see snow this time of year, or at all, very often,” said Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) senior forecaster, Keris Arndt.

Ballarat just experienced its coldest-ever September day on record, registering a max of just 5.8C at 10am on Friday morning — that’s 0.2C lower than the previous all-time record of 6C set on September 15, 1957.

In addition, a record-crushing low of 0.1C was recorded at 1.40pm (yes, ‘pm’), and “surprise snow” even accumulated across the city and surrounding areas.

Looking forward, further heavy snow and record-low temperatures will persist throughout the weekend and into next week. As a result, NSW has seen Mount Canobolas closed ahead of anticipated blizzard-like conditions, and a sheep graziers warning is in place for many regions.

In addition, a fierce wintry storm will ravage the entire length of New Zealand this weekend, prompting the country’s meteorological agency to place 90% of the nation under at least one “severe weather” warning.

  1. This morning Brisbane has 7°C and Caloundra 8°C at 5:30 am.

    Northern NSW town Woolgoolga, where the main street is a hundred metres from the Pacific, has 4°C.

    These are winter temperatures.

    Caloundra is about the same latitude south as Miami, Florida is north.

    It was over 20°C here at this time 2 days ago.

  3. I guess we’d better find another Accord or two sign.

    Obviously signing only one Climate Accord is not enough to stem the existential threat of global warming.

    And these folk actually run entire countries??

  4. After Australia, Snow Forecast for New Zeland too.

    Strong winds, thunderstorms and snow as cold front approaches New Zealand

    Heavy Snow is due in the Deep South from late on Sunday through into next week. This prolonged period of snow, wind and cold temperatures will be stressful for exposed livestock.

    I wonder if these “anomalies” or “cold waves” so ignored by warmists are turning into a trend … slowly. Each year the positive solar radiation balance decreases. I wonder if this spring snow is already installed annually!?

  5. 500 km/sec solar wind with Equinox cracks in our magnetosphere means deep penetration into our atmosphere which produces beautiful aurorae and big kicks in the jet-stream.
    We frequently experience Antarctic blasts at this time of year which tear the petals off our Magnolia trees.
    It happened in 1982 in similar fashion. Orange Youth Hostel NSW saw snow on the Oct long week-end holiday. We’d all been wearing shorts and T-shirts during the week before-hand. Trees were in blossom and it felt like summer was in the air.

    This current event was bitterly cold and I had the fire well loaded up.

  6. its unpleasantly cold still, frost overnight fcast
    whats interesting is the spaceweather pages seem REALLY eager for cycle 25 sunspots to get active and last more than a day or less.. big hype everytime anything looks like appearing
    theyve admitted cycle 25 is going to be as low as 24(if not lower) so why theyre so eager to have the beginning sunspots be large and capable of flares is a bit weird. you wouldnt expect the first yr of an 11ish yr cycle to be full on straight away
    however with irradiance low with mag field low the COOLING will become notable..gee, wouldnt that muck up a lot of greenschemes funding etc
