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."
