Weather: Cold blast brings 'winter-like temperatures'
Scott Palmer

A fast-moving cold blast has hit New Zealand on Saturday, leaving behind "winter-like temperatures" in the South Island as it moves up the country.

"A front is making its way northwards over New Zealand today leaving another cold airmass in its wake," Met Service says.

"This is a fast-moving feature and will end just south of thhti Auckland by tonight."

NIWA says it's going to be windy in the South Island and lower North Island, with westerlies becoming southerly.

There will also be "winter-like temperatures" in the South Island, arriving in the lower/eastern North Island on Sunday.

Rain radar shows the front bringing rain to northern Westland, and Buller across to Canterbury.

"Severe weather watches are in force for wind, rain and snow along the South Island currently as the front leaves another cold airmass in its wake," MetService says.

Road snowfall warnings have been issued for Lewis Pass, Arthur's Pass, Porters Pass, Lindis Pass, Crown Range Road, and Milford Road.

Well, we're not there yet, a lot of green still, but we're definitely heading Orion side...

Image
I'm waiting for a shot in this area, probably next weekend, when the distant trees go orange, for a telephoto backdrop to the dead trees in the water...I shot it last year but accidentally had the camera on too low res...then the leaves were gone).

But you CAN find areas of peak, I think peak will be by the end of the week...

'Till then, it's possible to ride on in denial that summer's not over, I prefer the denial route..

Hang in there Mr. Ghost, warm weather's comin'.

Holy shit from shinola, starting early with the wild jet stream swings this year, 59f/15c yesterday, 22f/-5.5 now. Broke out ALL my winter cycling clothes and did 15miles/24k and I am NOT acclimated...holy fuck, we're supposed to ease into this shit.

Should be interesting winter, the jet stream was pretty was wild last year and the ocean is a few degrees warmer...anyone say superstorms?

Eastern half of nation to be swallowed by deep freeze as Arctic blasts surge south


And another wild swing next week:
"At the same time, the next front will be quietly collecting itself across the country’s northern tier, spanning Montana, the Dakotas and Minnesota. On Sunday, it will pass through Nebraska, Kansas and the Corn Belt. On Monday, it could reach from the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast to the Ohio River and eventually the eastern Great Lakes and New England. This one could be even sharper, more defined and more dramatic than its predecessor."

...

“The significance of below normal temperatures look to be noteworthy,” wrote the National Weather Service’s Chicago office. “Current forecast highs for Monday, Veterans Day, are the coldest on record for that date.” The coldest high temperatures on Nov. 10, 11 and 12 have been 28 degrees — with records dating back to 1872. Lows will drop to the middle teens."

18 degrees and leaves still on my trees...
...that's fucked up :shock:

(-7c)

It probably killed all my broccoli, I'm afraid to look...


Arctic blast brings record-breaking temperatures across the U.S.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday and Wednesday may see record cold from the southern Plains to the Mississippi Valley to the Great Lakes and beyond, thanks to what it calls an "arctic airmass" that started in Siberia and has been spilling over a big chunk of the Midwest and East Coast.

...

"This is an air mass that's more typical for the middle of January than mid-November," said Birk.

Our mountains are like 2000 foot, and they're all rounded off and are...

Your mountains...

Our mountains...

Your skiing...

Our skiing...

Just kidding, we do have better skiing, but most below 2000 feet...and same for the rest of the countryside....

It's not bad here, but nothing compared to the northwest....you got drama :)

Can't see no steelhead swimming,
cant find no gems,
can't drop a rock into a 140 foot box canyon for the echo,
nor see a volcano,
nor a nurse tree
nor hear an elk
can't swim in the hotspring
can't ski no powder
can't see an evening sunset, (we get dawn),
nor buy a corvette :)

We do have this cold-assed place though...

Mt Washington summit, world record wind...

For nearly sixty-two years, Mount Washington, New Hampshire held the world record for the fastest wind gust ever recorded on the surface of the Earth: 231 miles per hour, recorded April 12, 1934 by Mount Washington Observatory staff.

...

The Mount Washington record was toppled in 1996 when an unmanned instrument station in Barrow Island, Australia recorded a new record of 253 miles per hour during Typhoon Olivia. Though the Observatory record fell, it’s a very human story, and it still stands as the highest surface wind speed ever observed by man.

back in 2011:

248km/h (154mph): The highest gust of wind ever recorded in Wellington.

29km/h (18mph): The average wind speed at Wellington Airport.

104km/h (64mph): The highest gust at Wellington Airport this spring.

233: The number of days winds topped gale-force speed in Wellington's windiest year.....

We had the full range today, beautiful hot morning, torrential rain and gale force winds for lunch and here we are around seven thirtyish in the evening and the late sun is just blasting in.....

there was a tornado down in the South Island, ripped off a couple of roofs.....we're not really a tornado country, so that was a surprise.....

Low of: 9.0°C-(48.2°F)

High of: 18.0°C-(64.4°F) 8)
