Summer in Antarctica was peaking, after +14,7°C, temperatures up to +13,6°C in Antarctic Peninsula, Macquarie Island near Antarctica with historic +17,1°C
Only in January 2022 hit Antarctica the warmest day of the season with maximum temperatures up to +14,7°C in Antarctic Peninsula /extreme weather in Antarctica is carefully watched here: https://twitter.com/extremetemps/.
In February 2022, “heatwaves” in the coldest continent of the Earth were continuing.
+13,6°C was measured in Carlini, King George Island /new all-time record/;
+13,0°C was measured in King Sejong /almost new all-time record (0,2°C missing)/;
+12,7°C was measured in Vernadsky, Galindez Island /new all-time record/;
+11,6°C was measured in Palmer /new all-time record/;
+8,8°C was measured in Zuchelli (Terra Nova Bay);
+8,8°C was measured in Base Jang Bogo;
+8,3°C was measured in Cape Bird, Ross Island;
Abnormally warm summer times hit Macquarie Island, between Antarctica, Australia and New Zealand /Australian territory/, with historically highest maximum temperature ever, +17,1°C (previous record almost 3°C lower).
In the middle of February 2022, the first signs of the arrival of the winter period have appeared, with the first -50,0°C and lower temperatures of the season (-50,1°C in Dome Fuji).
The last winter season, 2021, was in the South Pole the coldest in history /https://mkweather.com/the-south-pole-with-the-coldest-winter-in-history-average-temperature-april-september-half-year-only-610c//, making from the year 2021 the 3rd coldest year ever /https://mkweather.com/south-pole-the-year-2021-was-the-3rd-coldest-in-history//.
Thanks to La Nina and many other factors /forecasts for Autumn and Winter 2022 for Antarctica are available here: https://mkweather.com/winter-2022-forecast-for-antarctica-dry-parts-will-be-colder-blizzards-should-be-severe/; https://mkweather.com/autumn-2022-forecast-for-antarctica-snowy-with-severe-blizzards//, the next very cold winter season above the South Pole is possible, but upcoming El Nino will make the next winter season very probably milder, than previous.
The best time for expeditions are therefore slowly ending and very hard cold and blizzard times are coming.
