|Winter solstice 2021 in Southern Hemisphere will be at 11:31 am on|
Monday, 21 June
All times are in Australian Western Standard Time.
It is cold and blowing a gale.Can I have some 20.C sunny still weather please
It will happen. Just not in Perth. The southern currents are what they are.
Summer just started in Florida...
|It became still and sunny this afternoon.Maybe I am a god like savior dude|
|Southern Wisconsin finally got the rain that it has been needing for a loooooooooong time now... our poor crops...|
|Its sunny and 4.C going to 16.C max.Coldest ever.Its unprecedented.The warming has made it cold again.We are all doomed.I just turned on the gas heater we will survive.|
|Gee look. It's supposed to rain next week in Perth. The low temps will be higher, but the high temps will be lower, on average.|
|Thats how it normaly works.There is not a single climate model that allows for moisture content in the air because it is impossible which would explain why they are so wrong|
|Perth winter weather blast as temperature plunges to 1.9C, the city's coldest in two years|
Perth has endured its coldest night in two years, brought on by winds from the Antarctic, with the temperature in the city plummeting below 2 degrees Celsius.
A front carrying cold Antarctic air is forcing Perth temperatures down
It was 0.1 degrees Celcius at Jandakot in Perth's south just before 7:30am
Minimum temperatures over the next few days are expected to be 4-5C
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) recorded an overnight low of 1.9C just after 6:30am.
The last time the temperature dropped that low in Perth was May 2019.
"The cold front that moved through on Sunday and Monday is bringing a very cold air mass up from the Antarctic from the south," BOM senior meteorologist Steph Bond said.
"Because we've got clear skies overnight and light winds, that allows the temperatures to plummet and get very cold."

There were even lower temperatures recorded in the suburbs, with Jandakot in Perth's south falling to 0.1C just before 7:30am.
Perth Airport dropped down to 0.5C just after 5:00am, its lowest mark since 2015.
Ms Bond said she expected the cold front to last for another few days as a ridge of high pressure sat over the southern parts of the state during the week.
Minimum temperatures over the next few days are expected to hover between 4C and 5C, with maximums rising to between 15C and 17C.
"[But] we're probably not going to see temperatures break any records during this week," Ms Bond said.
"We'll probably see the coldest night be [Monday night], and then temperatures will then very slowly warm over the next week or so before the next cold front next weekend."
Perth's lowest temperature on record came in 2006 when the city dropped to 0.7C.
Cold story elsewhere
Ms Bond said weather conditions further down the state's coast would be comparable to Perth this week.
If they run out of ice in Antartica soon I will scrap my windscreen and post it back.

Exactly as would be Panamanians in Panamá with a 0.7C low, they'd be outside in T-shirts ... under other T-shirts ... under other T-shirts ... because T-shirts are all they have ... under heavy blankets ... sandwiched between a few mattresses ... alongside a large bonfire (there are no space heaters in Panama, they have never needed them).
So Wisconsin and Panamá are pretty similar in that regard.
This is the Panamá chapter of the Polar Bear Club:
|We almost dropped down in the 40s last winter...|
We almost got up in the 40s last winter...
I'm exaggerating a bit, as we had plenty of days in the 40s around the bookends of our winter, but still.

|Today I dug in stormwater pipes around a new house and most of the year you do the shady side first and the other side when the sun moves over.Today I did out the front in the sun and it was glorious in the weak winter sunshine.I had a break at a cafe midmorning and had opportunity to read todays paper and the letters column.A woman wrote in that even though we are having unusual cold weather we must not lose sight of the dangers of global warming and this cold snap from Antarctica is because of global warming.How can I argue with that logic|
