It's supposed to snow today, but only a little, and it's gonna happen in the evening. Still won't stop the local weather service to issue a weather warning for the state!

Right now it's 9C (48F), it's starting to hover around freezing in the night.

So if the northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun, even when were closest, does that mean the souther hemisphere tilts away when its the farthest? And so there winter i assume is more 'extreme' than ours?

Yes, the Southern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun at aphelion, which is the point at which the Earth is farthest from the Sun. (BTW, the Earth's closest approach to the Sun is called perihelion.)

I don't know if that makes the winters more extreme or not. The Southern Hemisphere has less land area than the Northern Hemisphere, and large bodies of water tend to moderate climate in neighboring land areas, so it might mitigate the differences between seasons. (It's been many years since I studied geography or "Earth Science".)

Lawdy? Inikalord? You two actually live in the SH; care to jump in?

Correct. It also results, IIRC, in the regional temperature acting the way you thought it would - the sun is furthest during the winter months and closest during the summer months. The two still aren't correlated but the happen to end up that way.

I can't speak for anybody living there, but there is no basic scientific function I know of which would suggest that. Maybe a stronger expert in the field can speak on it, but the effect of the distance is extremely marginal and altering when you have high spread/low spread (winter/summer) of your rays is the dominating force.

The Global Conveyor Belt shouldn't be altered by it either. Altered by climate changes, possibly. But altered between summer/winter? Probably negligibly so (as in "bananas technically give you radiation" low).
