    its hard to see antarctic is being effected by global warming it seems like its not effected as much as its hyped up to be.

    right i know this is couple of months ago how about this for cold.

    but if im correct this is not the coldest ever but pretty near:.

    Northeast Siberia braces for extreme cold of -60C

    15/12/2008 12:45 YAKUTSK, December 15 (RIA Novosti) - Temperatures in the northeast Siberian republic of Yakutia could fall to minus 60 degrees Celsius (minus 76 degrees Fahrenheit) in the next few days, the local meteorological service said Monday.

    With average low temperatures in Yakutia dropping below minus 40 degrees Celsius (minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit) overnight, weather in the town of Verkhoyansk dropped overnight to minus 53 degrees Celsius (minus 63.4 degrees Fahrenheit), while in Oymyakon it reached minus 57 degrees Celsius (minus 70.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

    “However, this is not the limit - in the next few days weather in the town of Krestyakh could drop below minus 58 degrees Celsius (minus 72.4 degrees Fahrenheit),” the meteorological service spokesman said.

    The spokesman added that the current spell of extremely cold weather was due to an influx of cold polar air masses.

    Yakutia has two places that contest the honor of being named the North Pole of cold, or the place where the lowest-ever temperature in the Northern hemisphere was recorded - Verkhoyansk with a record of minus 67.8 degrees Celsius (minus 90 degrees Fahrenheit) and Oymyakon with a minimum of minus 67.7 degrees Celsius (minus 89.9 degrees Fahrenheit).

    so it really put this winter into perspective on just how cold its been compard to most years. :clap:

    The coldest city on Earth is Verkhoyansk isn't, recorded below -60 a few times.

    Maybe not a City though?

    1500 people qualifies as a city on here.

    :)

    Outwith Antarctic/Arctic polar base camps, anyone find lower than -48C ?

    Is Dawson City in the Yukon the coldest city currently in the world?

    Dew point of -53, that is ridiculous!!!!!!! All those times us snow lovers in the UK have got anxious about that dew point hovering around 0 with PPN around, you wouldn't need to get worried about it being borderline there :)

    It certainly wouldn't fall as big fluffy flakes at that temperature either!
