Canberra's coldest mornings since 1965

A light dusting of global warming there…

From the Weather Isn’t Climate department. Cue Tim Flannery, Will Steffen or David Karoly saying that this is “consistent with global warming” in 3, 2, 1…

Canberra has shivered through its eighth straight freezing, frosty morning, the coldest stretch of winter mornings in 47 years.

The mercury dropped to a chilly minus 4.8 degrees at 6.51am this morning, topping off eight consecutive mornings below minus 2.3 degrees.

The eight-day cold spell, with an average minimum temperature of minus 4.9, is the coldest string of July mornings since 1965. The all-time record was in July 1962, when the average temperature over an eight-day period was minus 7.

Canberrans felt the worst of the cold on Wednesday, when temperatures fell to minus 6.1 degrees, 6 degrees colder than the long-term July average of minus 0.1.

Wednesday’s low is still far from the record July minimum of minus 10 degrees, recorded in 1971, but is just shy of the lowest temperature recorded this year, which was minus 6.3 degrees on June 20. (source)

  1. Who said Julia’s carbon tax wouldn’t work?

  2. Baldrick says:

    It’s obviously caused by Labor and Green politicians enjoying their winter break from Canberra … less hot air!

  3. OK now it has worked can we get rid of it and have better warm weather I like global warming temperatures

  4. Futureproof says:

    If it is record cold snap it is cause by Global Warming. It if is a record heat wave, it is caused by Global Warming. If it is the heaviest snow in years, its AGW. We’ve heard it all before. These AGW schmucks have an answer for everything…except for by what amount will the carbon tax lower temperatures. When it comes to explanations, Gullard and the Green-slime are about as useless as an ashtray on a motorbike.

    Stop poking fun at this. I live here! 🙂

  6. Richard N says:

    Maybe a few more mornings like this and Abbott might even be tempted to put the coalition’s crazy direct action climate cooling policy on hold.

  7. If Science is about facts fitting hypotheses (and not the other way round) then one would have to agree that the Russians got it totally right back in 2008. Habibullah Abdusamatov, head of the Pulkovo Observatory space research laboratory, said (in 2008) “that Earth had passed the peak of its warmer period, and a fairly cold spell would set in quite soon, by 2012. Real cold will come when solar activity reaches its minimum, by 2041, and will last for 50-60 years or even longer”.

    Rug up my friends, you aint seen nothing yet!
