THE icy weather of snow, hail and heavy rain that has swept across South Africa over the past few days has set 54 weather records.

The South African Weather Service said 34 new records were set on Monday and another 20 yesterday. Almost all records were for the lowest maximum and minimum daily temperatures in towns across the country.

Plettenberg Bay and Tsitsikamma both recorded their highest daily rainfall, at 68mm and 71.2mm respectively, on Monday. Plettenberg Bay recorded its lowest minimum temperature, 5.6°C, yesterday. Tsitsikamma had its lowest maximum temperature on Monday, 12.1°C, and its lowest minimum yesterday, 6.3°C.

The lowest minimum temperature recorded was -6°C in Welkom, while the lowest maximum temperature was a mere 1.7°C in Barkly East. Both were recorded on Monday night.

Climate Changes are not the same throughout the Earth. While in some places there will be droughts, records heat, etc, in others there will be the oposite.

Climate change is about dynamic instability.

Its not just global warming, although that is the total net result.

The local fluctuations will be wild swings from the norm which may be quite cold.

South Africa is in late fall, starting early winter now, correct?

Not sure this is really that unusual for that region at this time of year.

Climate Change is not "uniform" as some members have tried to claim in the past, that was my main point.

The climate wil continue to get on the overall hotter, but we will see such fluctuations from "weather records of coldest days" and "weather records of warmest days" and not because of mankind, but because of the changes the Earth's magnetic field and the Sun, among the other natural changes occurring. As some scientists have said after about a decade or so we will probably go back to another LIA.

We have had one of the coldest weekends ever recorded here in the UK, even Lapland and Siberia had warmer weather, it looks like the weather isn't going to improve either anytime soon. Temps should be around 17C at this time of year, but recently its been around 6-10C, the media makes me laugh on this subject of man made global warming, it only makes headline news on warm, hot days here.
