Saw this thread and thought hmmm we are having odd weather arent we. But id agree its nothing but a data glitch.
That being said concerning the current 50 year event. We had snow on our nearby mountain to late afternoon which is about 600-700 meters high and in
the 10 years ive been here ive only seen that 2 other times and its gone by noon usually. Also we had what appeared to be proto snow for most of the
morning (larger than fine mist drops but very slow meandering trajectory rather than typical angled rain you could tell it wasn't fine rain even
though a portion of it was), followed by a sudden 2 minute snow flurry around lunch time which was a mix of very loose hail like material that floated
lazily rather than the regular speedy moving hail along with what looked like smaller clumps of white snowiness material that melted the moment it hit
the wet ground or any other surface.
They even got snow like that in Auckland, which happened last time over 80 years ago... so while it aint HAARP, we have some freaky record breaking
weather at the mo thanks to this polar blast, and its gonna be around for a few more days to boot
Might get lucky and get some actual snow snow tonight or tomorrow if the elements are right, garden might not like that though
and its playing
havoc down in the South Island unfortunately.
