Depending on where the person lives, the winter season may provide him with a long-awaited opportunity to take a break from the sweltering heat, or vice versa, drive him into longing for his long months of cold and snow. However, for the inhabitants of Australia, it seems, already in the middle of this century, everything will change in this regard, since by 2050 the winter in Australia will stop in the sense in which we all consider it now. This is evidenced by the analytical and statistical data of a special meteorological device created by a team of specialists from the ANU Climate Change Institute, studying global and regional trends in climate change.
In fact, winter, of course, will not disappear, but will only be replaced by a somewhat alternative time of the year, which experts call “New Summer”. It is worth noting that the fact that all the analytical and statistical data of the development device does not fully reflect the objective meteorological reality, instead, the device actually draws the most probable picture of climate change in Australia, based on the available data.

Thus, the “New Summer” will be a period with peak temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius, which for winter, of course, is a temperature frankly not widespread. Even in Australia, whose climate largely goes tropical. However, scientists note that according to the constructed statistical diagram of their meteorological structure, in some regions of the continent, winter in its modern sense will remain – for example, in Tasmania, where there is a somewhat isolated climate regime.
In all other regions and regions of Australia, it is justified to wait for a truly radical change in climatic conditions. It is worth noting the fact that scientists also say that the new weather conditions will somehow reflect a certain climatic reality in Australia by the middle of this century, but this is not a strictly substantiated scientific forecast. It is worth noting that so far the device continues to receive updates and improvements.
