Antarctica Condition 1 Weather

By Ben • weather • 17 Feb 2014

As I write this, it's snowing hard. We're under a Winter Storm Warning with 1-2" of snow per hour and the wind blowing at 25-30 miles an hour. I just spent 30 minutes stuck in my car on a hill, unable to turn around because of other cars stuck on that same hill. But, at least it's not Antarctica out there.

Condition 1 weather at the Scott Base in Antarctica means that no one is allowed outside. Yeah, we all know Antarctica can be nasty, but (as this video shows) often we're not aware just how nasty it gets. Enjoy this tour of Condition 1 weather at the Scott Base in Antarctica.
