We have lived all our lives in a world of climate, heat, cold, and humidity, and the atmosphere in Greenland is no different. The cold and the dryness are never-ending. And the Arctic is a dry land.
Our warmest year ever has only been here for a few months and a few weeks,
and our cold wintry winds have blown down so many more windows than usual. We’ve had snow in June, and April and May. And we’re going to have cold weather in November.
But with everything we’ve had to endure lately, nothing has had time to mature into weather conditions. And the weather forecast for November has us cautiously optimistic, hoping that the soggy precipitation won’t last long. Then, since nothing lasts forever, we’ll be able to anticipate weather in Greenland for another year or two to come.
Even though I’m about five miles from the coast on the Atlantic side of Turnberry Island, I can see the rain and the wintry winds every day. It’s frustrating. I’d love to go there and tell them how it is, but I don’t like to jinx things.
I know there are a lot of personal opinions out there about the weather in Greenland, and if you were to write an article about it, what would you say? Maybe some of them would be right, and some of them might be wrong.
If you ask me, and I’ve listened to a lot of talk over the years about the weather in Greenland, I think that the sun may be to blame for the fact that the weather on this icy island gets warm or cold so often. It seems to always be a part of it. So, in other words, it’s just a part of the iceberg that makes Greenland weather.
My observations about weather in Greenland indicate that while summer temperatures in winter are chilly
and even miserable, temperatures can drop below freezing for a couple of days a year in the winter. In the spring, it’s a very sunny day, and temperatures average in the mid-70s. In the fall, it’s slightly warmer but generally cooler than the summer. I’m not sure why the weather in Greenland doesn’t get colder all year round.
I’m thinking it may be because there are different body temperatures all over the world. I think there’s a big difference between Greenland and higher elevations. Temperatures there seem to rise and fall at a different rate. At higher elevations, they feel a little bit cooler than the ocean and desert climates, and warmer than glaciers, but still seem a little more like the Caribbean Sea or Alaska.
On the other hand, the sound of a hurricane on a windy day and the smell of ozone are proof enough that the weather does change on a global scale. That may be a clue that people who live in Greenland may have to work a little harder to make weather predictable. I guess it depends on where they live.
If you live on the coast, the weather may be unpredictable enough to attract more visitors. Some visitors say that the winds and rain in Greenland are so bad that it would be nice to go back home and do gardening.
If you want to see a climate like that, try Governing Greenland, the E-book about weather in Greenland. It can give you a feel for the weather on the planet, so you know what to expect.
