Antarctica is a typically cold place but the past couple of weeks has seen the entire continent shiver at 6 and 8C below average. This has offset building heat elsewhere across the planet and held the global temperature to average, even slightly below average.

Recent weeks has seen waves of Antarctic cold spread into Southern and Southeast Australia and brought unusual snow falls to unusually low levels across New South Wales.

With a maximum of just 10.3C last Friday, Sydney’s Observatory Hill witnessed it’s coldest day since 1984 and coldest June day since 1899.

This exceptional chill comes after Sydney had their coldest run of May nights (nights below 9C) since 1954.
