Antarctica plunges to the lowest temperature since 2017 in 2023

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Antarctica plunges to the lowest temperature since 2017 in 2023.

A weather station at Concordia Research Station in Antarctica may have just registered the world’s lowest temperature in six years.


According to real-time data published by Italy’s Antarctic Meteo-Climatological Observatory, the temperature at Concordia Research Station dropped to -83.2ºC on July 25.

Another nearby Automatic Weather Station, named Dome C II, also registered temperatures lower than -80ºC, reaching -81.4ºC at 18:47 UTC on July 24 and -81.6ºC shortly before 03:00 UTC on July 25.

Part of the Southern Pole of Cold, an area in the southern hemisphere with the lowest-recorded surface temperatures, the Vostok research station was created by the Soviet Union in 1957. Thermometers here reached a low of -89.2°C in July 1983, the lowest air temperature ever directly recorded. It is also one of the driest places on Earth, receiving around 20 millimetres of precipitation a year, all of which is snow.

Hardly the most popular holiday hotspots, these places are known for their extreme cold. If you are planning a visit, grab a blanket and get ready to hunker down – they hold the record for the coldest temperatures ever recorded.

1) Eastern Antarctic Plateau, Antarctica (-94°C)

The Eastern Antarctic Plateau claims the title of coldest place on Earth. Between 2004 and 2016, satellite data collected across Dome Argus and Dome Fuji, an area around the size of Australia, suggest that air temperatures could be around -94°C. This would be the coldest temperature on Earth, but researchers think that with the dry air around the area, it could cause temperatures to get even colder.
