Bouvet Island is an uninhabited island in the sub-Antarctic along the South Atlantic volcanic ridge, says reader Kingbum. It is approximately 1400 km from the tip of South African tip and 1100 km from Antarctica.
Temperatures here are consistently running 40F below normal. They’re supposed to be in the mid 60sF but have been in the 20s with no end at sight.
This morning it was minus six degrees with afternoon snow in the forecast, calling for accumulations of 6 to 12 cm of snow before ending this evening.
Not too far from Africa, yet no news in the mainstream media.
