Inconceivable: Within a short time, a temperature difference of 114.9 degrees was reported in two different places on earth.
Two weather records are responsible for this! On January 2nd, temperatures at the Summit research station on Greenland dropped to minus 66 degrees due to a massive cold spell, a record for the Danish island. Just a few hours later, the thermometer in heat-plagued Sydney, Australia, climbed to 48.9 degrees, another record.
Dipl.-meteorologist Dominik Jung (wetter.net) about BILD: “These weather extremes are a result of climate change. Our earth is slowly going crazy. “
Why is it so cold in Greenland and why is it so mild here?
Dominik Jung: “That is due to the currently strong polar vortex. It keeps the freezing winter temperatures up there. In contrast, mild temperatures from the Mediterranean region reach us in Germany. “
And when does winter come to us?
At the moment it doesn’t look like winter at all. On the contrary: The mild temperatures will probably remain with us for the near future.
