A bit wintry—in winter. Wow.

BOM:
The Bureau of Meteorology issued severe weather warnings for South Australia on Tuesday and warnings were in place for damaging winds in Victoria and New South Wales on Wednesday.The cold blast is forecast to continue through the remainder of the week and was expected to reach as far north as the granite belt of Queensland, where snow flurries are possible in elevated areas on Saturday morning.

Much of NSW, Victoria and Tasmania are forecast to experience colder weather from Wednesday. Snow is forecast down to 400m in Victoria, including the hills surrounding Melbourne, on Friday and Saturday morning.

“It is a series of cold fronts and one is pushing through tomorrow and more throughout the week,” Sarah Scully, a senior meteorologist at the B0M said.

“It’s basically a return to really wintry conditions through south-eastern Australia.”

A question poor Booby does not ask: why is the air leaving Antarctica and what affect will that have on Antarctica?

Other air would have moved into Antarctica to replace that which left—warmer air.

As to why? AGW and Arctic Amplification of it have weakened and disorganised the Jet Streams that used to contain polar air to the polar areas, now Arctic air moves out of the Arctic easily, bringing Arctic conditions to areas south of it. Around Antarctica the waters of the Southern Ocean are warming due to warm waters of the South Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans reaching the Southern Ocean. This is why Antarctica is warming up and land and sea ice there is in retreat.

I know. He has no understanding of climate, Jet Streams or anything much.

We can expect to be hit with more Antarctic weather more often and harder.

Moron wants me to apologise for the weather again. I have pointed out, using the BoM graphs, that cold events are still possible but less frequently. He has posted some bullshit sun cycle graphs. Globally, we get some cold weather due to Antarctic air coming here but Antarctica warms because the air that leaves it is replaced by air north of Antarctica warming it—no change globally. He is to dumb, too uneducated and too brainwashed to understand anything beyond “Local cold so Ice Age!”

If Aussie and JohnSmith were unbanned early, which Set implied, it must be because OzPol was too quiet.

Putting someone with some nous, some knowledge into Environment will increase posting levels too.

Now he says the above is me lying. Silly twit has no understanding, not even junior HS science level of understanding.

Will explain it a bit simpler:

1. Nature abhors a vacuum

2. Air moving out of one place therefore has to be replaced by other air

3. Air moving out of Antarctica is replaced by air around Antarctica, warmer air than in Antarctica.

4. Yes, open any real science paper and you will see Antarctica and Antarctic waters are warming up and ice is melting.

Jesus! This i]s what that moron wrote:

Note:
Monk is telling lies on his forum that warm weather in Antarctica is sending the cold weather here.
[/QUOTE

I never said that, I said air leaving Antarctica is replaced by air from outside Antarctica. Moron level achieved by Booby.
Jesus Christ but Booby is too stupid to qualify for idiot!
