Record July cold from Greenland. Early winter? A Limerick.

aws_gc_netOn August 1, 2016 the Danish Meteorological Institute’s measuring station registered an appalling -30.7 ° C at the ice cap’s summit as the month of July expired. (elevation 10500 feet)

“This is the lowest temperature for July we have from this station,” said DMI senior climatologist John Cappelen.

The previous record was -27.7 ° C on 30 July 1992.

Winter came early to Greenland

Nature has dealt it a mean hand.

It begins to unfold,

record temperature cold.

Melting? In fantasy dreamland.
