As the northern hemisphere reels from one of the harshest winters in many years, folks in the southern hemisphere — who are just wrapping up their summer season — are also dealing with much cooler weather. Sydney, Australia, “reached a high of just 21 [Celsius] again today, five degrees below the monthly average. It is now safe to say it has been the coolest February in 23 years.” Hobart, Tasmania has experienced its coldest February in 12 years. Same for Canberra.
Yeah, I know one month’s weather does not a climate change make. But I just wanted to preserve this anomaly for later this year, when the media goes bananas over 115-degree days in Las Vegas.
