Winter 2020 is still dominating much of the Southern Hemisphere, even as both meteorological and astronomical calendars have now flipped to ‘spring’.
Parts of Australia prophesied to never see a drop of rain ever-again were ‘enjoying’ record-setting deluges over the weekend: Marree in South Australia recorded its heaviest rainfall in 36 years on Saturday — in just 24hrs, 93mm of cosmic ray assisted raindrops fell. The frontier mining town of Broken Hill received 36mm over the weekend which resulted in flash-flooding (shown below) and also went down as the town’s heaviest rain for four years.
Eyeing forward, bitter polar cold looks set to ride anomalously-far north on the back of a –yes, you guessed it– meridional jet stream flow: that violent ‘buckling’ of the stream will deliver a monster mass (that’s ‘mass’ not ‘mash’) of out-of-season cold to much of the Aussie continent.
To begin the week, a chill will dominate the west:
Then, beginning Tuesday, the frigid air will shift east and by Wednesday/Thursday will be joined by a second far-more intense blast of polar cold.
“We will start to feel by Friday, winter-like weather in southeastern Australia,” said Sky News meteorologist Rob Sharpe; “Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, and Hobart will feel winter-like as we move through to the end of the working week,” he added.
This looks BIG:
By Saturday, temperature departures will have plunged some 6C to 16C below the late-Sept norm across two-thirds+ of the continent:
And will persist through the weekend and into next week:
The brutal mass of Antarctic air will also deliver heavy spring snow to Australia’s Alpine regions, with as much as 60+cm of late-season snow forecast to accumulate:
Looking elsewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, winter is also proving hard to shift in parts of South America as well as across large swathes of Southern Africa:

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. Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
