Alice Springs has chilled to zero-degrees or below 24 times this winter so far, 12 times more than the winter average, Brett Dutschke of Weatherzone reports. This is the highest number since 2002, when there were 36.

Leigh Creek, in South Australia’s far north, has dipped to zero or below 10 times so far, the most in at least 30 years. This beats the previous winter record of nine, set in 1997.
