It's been hot for over 1 and a half months here; 25 degrees C or over. Today was 32 and my car started making noises. Have to take it off for a service before we do the annual French trip which is over 3000 Kms there and back

Big news on french media this week....Be careful it's hot outside. Well yeah it's hot (38°C in the shade), but it's summer for fucksakes! Ever since 25000 seniors kicked the bucket in the summer of 2003, the governement puts out warnings when the temp goes above 30°C, and then the you get the "it's global warming" spew from the "scientist talking head".

I'll be in my beloved Ardèche home for the next 3 weeks and the forecast is for some 40°C or more sunny awesomness.

Officially it's now spring in paradise.....However, over the last couple of days there's been some record snow dumped around the place, some of the ski fields got more snow than they've seen all winter. Locally, I was lurking about catching some sun in a tee shirt most of Saturday, Sunday I was rugged up like Nanook. We got hit with some industrial quantities of gale force southerly winds and masses of heavy rain, it was freezing.....

The weird thing New Zealand's weather is doing today
Scott Palmer
2 hrs ago

New Zealand's weather appears to have a mind of its own as a new week gets underway.

There are 20°C (68°F) swings across the country on Monday and, incredibly, temperatures are both hotter and colder than average at the exact same time.

"Some parts of New Zealand are several degrees above average right now while others are several degrees below normal at the exact same time," Weather Watch says.

"Some have even reached 23°C (73.4°F) across parts of the North Island while at the same time a wintry southerly moves up the lower South Island, bringing snow for some areas down to just a few hundred metres."

Image

The strange effect is due to sub-tropical northerlies coming down from just south of Fiji into the northern half of New Zealand, pushing temperatures up.

At the same time a southerly change in the South Island is dropping temperatures to a few degrees below normal for mid-September - and as low as 3°C (37.4°F) in Central Otago.

NIWA has forecasted a decent late-season snowfall in the Southern Alps as the mercury falls. Images show snow falling at a "fast and furious pace" in Queenstown, closing the airport.

Ghost Note:
We are a couple of weeks into spring in NZ and yet we are experiencing four seasons throughout the length of the country, mid morning at home it was a toasty 24°C (75.2°F) :o
by 2:00pm it was back to a nipple erecting 8°C (46.4°F). I'm still treating everyday as winter, regardless of the forecast.....

Getting dark kinda early up here Mr. Ghost, the trees are still green, but have lost that lush deep green. I think the fall colors will be 3 weeks behind as we've had a ton of rain...but it's coming...we're about to swap weather I think....

My prediction is the colors are gonna pop pretty good, all trees near the same time, but it will probably be around the weekend of Oct 27th here in sunny Connecticut.

I think our weather has turned the corner baddy, things are starting to heat up, the puffer jackets and wet weather gear seems to have all but disappeared over the last week, a little early if you ask me, but the bad weather has dragged on so long that just a sniff of the sun and the coats are off and the kids are out. Daylight saving kicks in on September 30th, also a little early with the screwy climate right now, our clocks go forward, stealing an oh so precious hour from that particular weekend.....

I'd say so Gray_Ghost, hot summer gone in the Northern Hemisphere, days now 63/17 to 73/23 here in the Northeast US. I'm in my usual denial, it's still summer, it's still summer.

Yeah on the clocks, our loss is your gain, soon my after work bike rides will be plunged into darkness, not to emerge 'till March.

Weird Fall, super wet so the trees are a week or two behind I think, and they're all going to pop at once. I have some days off work coming up to go riding in it...

The lush deep greens are gone and the tree's are just starting to turn...lol, in 2 or 3 weeks I should post pictures of these same scenes at peak :)

This was yesterday...

The above was all deep lush green 2 weeks ago.

fun in the sun has been replaced by pain in the rain

Heavy snow and strong wind warnings across central and southern New Zealand
Mandy Te·21:50, Oct 12 2018

Central and southern parts of New Zealand are warned to brace for strong winds and heavy snow on Friday night and Saturday.

Severe weather warnings have been issued by the Met Service, with strong wind warnings for Taranaki, the Kaikoura coast, Marlborough Sounds and Wellington.

A heavy snow warning was also in place for Marlborough south of Ward and for Canterbury.

Heavy snow watches have been issued for the ranges of northern Hawkes Bay and southern Gisborne between Mohaka and Wharekopae, and also for Taihape, while a strong wind watch is in place for Westland.

"A trough of low pressure, followed by strong cold southerly flow, moves east across northern New Zealand tonight (Friday)," the Met Service said.

"Snow is expected to low levels over many parts of the upper South Island, and severe gale southerlies for parts of central New Zealand."

Heavy snow was expected in Marlborough, south of Ward, in the 10 hours from 8pm Friday to 6am on Saturday, with a further 10 to 15cm of snow expected to accumulate above about 500 metres with lesser amounts down to 300 metres on top of what has already fallen.

In Canterbury, for the four hours from 8:00pm Friday to 12:00am Saturday, a further 5 to 10cm of snow could accumulate above 500 metres, with lesser amounts down to about 300 metres on top of what has already fallen.

The heaviest snow was expected to ease by midnight, however, a few light snow showers may continue through to early Saturday morning.

The snow could disrupt travel, damage trees and power lines, and the cold condition could cause stress for livestock, the Met Service said.

Taranaki was warned to expect severe gale south easterlies for the six hours from 8:00pm Friday to 2:00am Saturday, gusting to 120 kmh in exposed places, especially about and north of Mt Taranaki.

The Kaikoura Coast, Marlborough Sounds and Wellington could expect severe gale southerlies gusting 120kmh (74.5 mph) in exposed placed for the three hours from 8:00pm to 11:00pm Friday.

Snow was also expected in the ranges of northern Hawkes Bay and southern Gisborne between Mohaka and Wharekopae for the 12 hours from 1:00am to 1:00pm Saturday. Snow was expected to lower to 600 metres overnight, with heavy falls possible above 800 metres. Snow accumulations may approach warning criteria above 800 metres.

For Taihape, in the eight hours from 11:00pm Friday to 7:00am Saturday snow was expected to lower to 600 metres overnight, with heavy falls possible above 800 metres. Snow accumulations may approach warning criteria above 800 metres.

In Westland for the five hours from 8:00pm Friday to 1:00am Saturday, south easterly gales may become severe in exposed places.
