In what we’re we’re led to believe is catastrophically warming world on the brink of disaster, this coming Monday could-well be the coldest Oct. 26 in Cheyenne’s recorded history.
Beginning Friday, a mass of brutal Arctic air will ride usually far south –all the way down to the southern Texas, in fact!– on the back of a meridional (wavy) jet stream flow. According to the NWS, this coming front is set to tear-up the record books ACROSS the United States and Canada over the next 7-10 days.
The city of Cheyenne, WY, for example, is on track to bust a low temperature record set a whopping 142 years ago — the -5F (-20.6C) set on Oct 26, 1878.
As reported by kgab.com, Laramie as well as Scottsbluff, Chadron, Alliance and Sidney could also see record low temperatures, similar to the all-time records set back in 1997 (solar minimum of cycle 22).
Accompanying the record cold will be unprecedented accumulations of snow:
Historic Cheyenne Snow
Back in 1997 (solar minimum of cycle 22), a memorable October storm blasted the front range with over two feet of snow, closing Interstate 25 from Wyoming to New Mexico.
In 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23), Cheyenne broke a 137-year-old record when 28 inches of snow had settled by Halloween. Cold fronts came early and often that fall, reports kgab.com. On October 10th, a blizzard dumped ten inches on the Capital City. Later in the month, another storm left six more inches. It was also the coldest October on record in Cheyenne.
And in 2017 (solar minimum of cycle 24), an October 8th blizzard closed Interstate 80 from Cheyenne to Rawlins and dropped over eight inches of snow in southeastern Wyoming.
Climate is cyclic, never linear — driven, mainly, by the activity of the sun.
October, 2020 is looking to threaten many of Cheyenne’s all-time wintry records–as well as those up and down the North American continent. This should come as no surprise though: solar output is rapidly diminishing, on track to reach its lowest levels in centuries within the next few years.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
