But for the real thing, look for Werner Herzog’s 2007 documentary, Encounters at the End of the World and Anthony Powell’s 2013 documentary, Antarctica: A Year On Ice.Hobart is the most southerly state capital in Australia, dominating the island state of Tasmania.Bitter katabatic winds (winds that carry higher density air, i.e.colder air, down a slope at up to hurricane speeds) spilling down from the Antarctic polar plateau into Mc Murdo Sound demonstrate Antarctica’s status as the coldest and windiest continent in the world; The Mc Murdo Sound freezes over with sea ice about 3 meters (9.8 ft) thick during the winter.The averages run from a low of 3.2 to a high of 5.7 (unsurprisingly, in June).Snowy days are more common: from 17.8 (the annual high) to 13.3 in September.It is also the second-oldest capital city and second least-populated Australian Capital with only 225,000 residents.
In many ways, Hobart’s weather is, at first glance (like that of the other Capitals), quintessentially Australian.Temperatures during the dark winter months at Mc Murdo Station have dropped as low as -51 °C (-60 °F), but the station is actually sheltered from the worst of the winds by the Transantarctic Mountains, so it’s rare for the temperature to drop below -40°C (which is also -40°F). There is increasing precipitation from 15 to 28 cm (0.59 to 1.1 inches) from March to June, with the proportion of snowfall also increasing – 11.4 to 17.8 cm (4.49-7.01 inches) over this span.Mc Murdo really only has two seasons – Summer and Winter. Note however that March is preceded by the heaviest average snowfall of the year, 22.4 cm (8.82 inches) in February.During winter, resupply is all but impossible, though occasional air flights in and out are possible.The Cold circumpolar currents of the Southern Ocean reduce the flow of warm South Pacific or South Atlantic waters reaching Mc Murdo Sound and other Antarctic coastal waters.
