StupidPeopleTrick writes "The antartic appears to be undergoing a heat wave. "Boesterling said the temperature was so mild yesterday when she and her colleagues travelled to Hut Point Peninsula to walk on a glacier that they had to open the window in the Hagglund, an amphibian over-snow tracked vehicle. She was able to walk in shirt sleeves, although she carried extreme cold weather clothing." From a tech standpoint, forcasts of antartic weather will be easily available at metservice. "Meanwhile, the MetService has extended its marine forecasts and warnings service to the Antarctic ice-edge to cater for the increase in tourism in the sub-Antarctic region." So now we all have a front row seat to this unfolding global drama."
