Northwest Passage is ice clogged and closed, Canadian Coast Guard WARNING do not attempt the passage or be prepared to overwinter in the Arctic. Maersk plans to run the Arctic with shipping vessels, but blacked by ice a well as 22 other pleasure craft. Above normal ice in NW Passage and 4th most ice on record since 2014. I don't think the corporate media is giving us all of the information.

Frost damage dashes farmers' hopes of record harvest,
as Perth shivers through chilly night.


By Gian De Poloni, Sunday September 16, 2018 - 14:25 EST

A record-breaking cold spell in Western Australia's agricultural heartland has shattered farmers' hopes of enjoying a bumper crop harvest.

Temperatures in the southern Wheatbelt dipped between 0 and minus 5 degrees Celsius on both Saturday and Sunday morning, while the Great Southern town of Newdegate recorded its lowest-ever temperature of minus 4.3 degrees.

Farmers woke to discover heavy frost gripping their wheat and barley crops, which were expected to deliver a combined 14 million tonne harvest this year.

Kojonup farmer Dan Ladyman, whose property is about 260 kilometres south-east of Perth, said the frost was fierce and widespread.

"First impressions was that it was obviously pretty severe," he said.

"It wasn't like the shadows were just frosted, it was a complete white out."



He said any significant damage to his crops would become apparent in the coming days.

"We probably expect to see a bit of damage in the canola and lupins that have been flowering, and hopefully nothing with the cereals because they aren't flowering yet for us," Mr Ladyman said.

"For us, in another two of three weeks when we're flowering is when we definitely don't want to be having (frost).

"But that's the game that we're in — we've just got the learn to be able to ride it out if it does happen."

Nyabing farmer Scott Crosby reported major damage on his cereal crops.

"It's not going to be a fun harvest," he said.



"There was some comment that it wouldn't be too bad because the crop is late, but not much likes minus 5 degrees regardless of the crop stage.

"What we need is rain ASAP to help reduce the damage. If it stays dry, the damage will be great."

Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Darryl Vink said a less severe frost event was expected in the coming week.

"We've got a cold front approaching the South West this evening — so a bit more wind and bit more cloud preventing the risk of anything extreme in terms of frost," he said.

"But then there is another high ridge of high pressure developing with cold wind, light winds and clear skies on Tuesday morning.

"So there's a moderate frost potential through the central Wheatbelt and Great Southern on Tuesday morning."

In Perth, temperatures fell to 2.8 degrees on Sunday morning, the coldest September low since 2015.

Jandakot temperatures slumped to 1.9 degrees, while the mercury reached just 1.6 degrees in the Swan Valley.

Perth's coldest ever September day was in 2008, when the temperature plunged to 1 degree.

Heavy snow hits NZ,


http://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/heavy-snow-hits-nz-with-rain-inbound/528500

with rain inbound

Ben Domensino, Monday September 17, 2018 - 14:48 EST

Snow fell to low levels in New Zealand on Monday as a low pressure system prompted severe weather warnings in the country's South Island. Now the country's north is bracing for heavy rain and flooding.

A low pressure system directing a stream of moisture-laden air into a pool of cold air moving across New Zealand's lower South Island triggered a late-season snow storm on Monday.

Snow was reportedly falling down to about 200 metres above sea level on Monday morning, with the streets of Queenstown, Arrowtown and Wanaka all covered in a layer of white.

The heaviest falls occurred in the mountainous heart of the South Island, where some ski resorts were forced to close for the day due to a power outage. There were reports of more than 50cm of fresh powder at Coronet Peak, while 5-10cm of snow accumulated at Queenstown Airport, according to Met Service.

Frosty morning in southeastern Australia


Ben Domensino, Thursday September 20, 2018 - 12:52 EST

Parts of Victoria and Tasmania registered their lowest September temperatures in several years this morning as widespread frost affected southeastern Australia.

Cool air lingering underneath a high pressure system caused temperatures to drop seven to eight degrees below average in parts of Australia's southeast on Thursday.

Victoria's Hopetoun dipped to minus 2.8 degrees early this morning, which was its lowest September temperature in seven years.

In Tasmania, Fingal had its coldest September morning in five years after reaching a low of minus 4.4 degrees shortly before 6:30am.

Melburnians awoke to a nippy start as the mercury dipped to 3.8 degrees. While there was a lower temperature recorded earlier this month, this was the city's coldest start this late in the year for 15 years.

Temperatures were also cold enough for frost this morning in parts of southern NSW, the ACT and SA's eastern inland. Canberra reached -2.9 degrees, which is the city's coldest start so far this spring.

Friday morning will be slightly warmer for most of southeastern Australia, although frost is likely to spread further north along the ranges of NSW.

Oz snow: One of the best seasons this century



Ben Domensino, Friday September 21, 2018 - 10:19 EST

Australia's snow season looks to have passed its peak depth for the season. So how did 2018 stack up to past years in Australia's alps based on snow depth?

After this week's natural snow depth of 176.5cm at Spencers Creek in NSW, it's likely that the peak of the 2018 season was 224.6cm back in late August.

The long-term average peak snow depth at Spencers Creek is just shy of two metres. However, most years in the 21st century have topped out below this mark - a trend that is in line with the background rise in global surface temperatures.

While this year's peak depth (224.6cm) was lower than last year (240.9cm), it's still better than every other year since 2005 and the fourth highest this century.

While Australia's snow season is, on average, getting shorter and the peak depths are declining, the last two years have shown that there's a lot of variability from year to year. Even when most of NSW is experiencing a drought, snowfalls can be prolific in the alps.

The highest snow depth at Spencers Creek was 361cm in 1981 and the lowest was 85.1cm in 2006, with data available at the site back to 1954.

End of season snow?


http://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/end-of-season-snow/528520

Thomas Hough, Saturday September 22, 2018 - 11:58 EST

The snow season may be slowly drawing to a close, but there are signs of a few more flurries yet to come.

Although a little uncertain at this stage, the best signs of any snowfall come in the second week of the next fortnight, with this coming week looking relatively snow-less. A front crossing to the south on Sunday should bring a few flurries of around a centimetre or two, just enough to add a fresh layer to the current coverage.

Although there isn't a great deal of snow expected this week, conditions are otherwise great to head out to the slopes. High pressure dominating over the southeast is bringing largely clear skies, excellent visibility, and light winds lasting until around the middle of the week.

Winds will increase a little through Sunday and early Monday as the front passes, but come Monday lunchtime these should have eased again.

As well as being the time of the year when we start to see less snowfall, it is also the time of year when snow already on the ground hardens overnight. This isn't all bad however, with warmer days through spring meaning it softens a lot during the day, making it somewhat less painful when you fall over.

The next signs of any snow come towards the end of the upcoming working week as the next frontal system moves across the southeast. There is some uncertainty at this point around how much is expected, so keep an eye on the forecast over the next few days.

Cold Sunday on the way for Tasmania


http://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/cold-sunday-on-the-way-for-tasmania/528521


Craig McIntosh, Saturday September 22, 2018 - 13:56 EST

A cold front will cross Tasmania on Saturday, leaving a brisk southwesterly airflow and snow down to low levels in some parts on Sunday.

Northwesterly winds ahead of the front are bringing a relatively warm Saturday to many areas of the Apple Isle, with most places from Launceston to Hobart and east to Swansea around 2-4 degrees above average. It's a bit cooler along the west coast as the winds are onshore.

Sunday, however, will be much cooler as the northwesterlies tend southwesterly in the wake of the cold front. Launceston, Queenstown and Hobart are all likely to be around 3-4 degrees colder on Sunday, whilst Swansea looks to max out at 12 degrees on Sunday, around eight degrees colder than Saturday.

As the front sweeps across the state on Saturday, snow will start falling over higher elevations in the south. By Sunday morning, snow could fall to around 600m, with most of the snow staying confined to the south.

Minimum and maximum temperatures are likely to remain lower than average for most places in Tasmania until around Wednesday when the winds look to shift back to the north.

More great evidence for a mini ice age:

Late-season chill grips southeastern Australia



Ben Domensino, Tuesday September 25, 2018 - 09:24 EST

It feels like spring hasn't started in parts of southeastern Australia, with some places registering their lowest September temperatures in years during the last couple of mornings.

A cold air mass combined with clear skies and light winds is producing unusually cold mornings in parts of South Australia, Victoria, NSW and the ACT this week.

Despite being the first month of spring, Victoria's Nhill Airport registered its lowest temperature in three years on Tuesday morning, dropping to minus 1.2 degrees just before 6am. This was also the coldest September night in more than 15 years.

Elsewhere, South Australia's Hindmarsh (4.3C) experienced its coldest morning this late in the year for 15 years on Tuesday, while Coldstream (-0.2C) in Victoria and Sheffield (-0.5C) in Tasmania had their coldest mornings this late in the year since 2010.

On Monday, Australia's highest weather station, Thredbo Top Station, dropped to a numbing minus 9.7 degrees. This was Australia's lowest September temperature in five years. Mount Hotham's minus eight on 16th September was also Victoria's lowest temperature for the month since 2013.


The lack of rain in recent months is likely to have contributed to this late-season chill. Overnight cooling is enhanced when the air is dry and skies are clear.

I hope this phantom Ice Age comes soon.

Humans Contribute to Earth’s Wobble, Scientists Say


Droughts, melting ice and rising seas linked to anthropogenic climate change are altering the planet’s motions.

Humans are responsible for some of the wobble in Earth's spin.

Since 1899, the Earth's axis of spin has shifted about 34 feet (10.5 meters). Now, research quantifies the reasons why and finds that a third is due to melting ice and rising sea levels, particularly in Greenland—placing the blame on the doorstep of anthropogenic climate change.

Another third of the wobble is due to land masses expanding upward as the glaciers retreat and lighten their load. The final portion is the fault of the slow churn of the mantle, the viscous middle layer of the planet.

From your reference -

"To fill in the gap, the research team built a computer model of the physics of Earth's spin, feeding in data about changes in the balance of land-based ice and ocean waters over the 20th century."

Now seeing as there is little "data" from the early 20th Century, or even the late 20th  Century, one wonders what weighting factors they used. Wink

1. Earth's spin isn't constant.
2. Isostatic adjustment has been going on since the last ice-age.

So let's look at what Adhikari said -

"The melting of the Greenland ice sheet was a particularly important contributor, the researchers found. "

And yet DMI says Greenland Ice Sheet has increased over the last 2 years. Does that mean the wobble has decreased over the last 2 years.

" "The amount [of drift] is not a huge amount," Adhikari said."

So people have been causing this drift for the last 16,000 years. BAD people.

Lee  Smiley

It is very small and of no consequence but a new Ice Age will return it to how it was.

However it is evidence that the amount of ice that has melted is significant to the degree it affects where the mass is on the planet. The effect is further evidence of the warming of the planet.

So bring on the Ice Age I say.
