Global freezing? Polar temperatures freeze Argentina covering many places in snow


This week saw freezing temperatures grip a large part of South America, including Argentina, Uruguay, parts of Chile and even Brazil with biting winds and even snow. Snow was experienced in 87 cities from Argentina to Brazil and nearly every province in Argentina experienced at least a little snow – which is highly unusual.

For the first time in living memory parts of Santiago del Estero in Argentina saw snow and the town of Tucuman had snow for first time since 1921.

Cars and trucks were stranded in parts of Argentina due to heavy snow. The Civil Defense and Road Safety of Chubut reported cars and trucks were stranded in Garayalde height on National Route 3 between Trelew and Comodoro Rivaderia on 21st July.

Heavy snow was experienced in some of the ski areas over southern Argentina. The snow accumulated to over 30 centimetres (12 inches) in some of the more remote inland spots of Argentina over the weekend.

Freak snow was also reported in Adelaide, Australia this week leading some to suggest a global freezing problem rather than global warming.
