Swathes Of Canada Dealing With Heavy June Snow — Vancouver Island Snowpack 150 Percent Of Average; “Severe Cold Spell” Warnings Issued In Zimbabwe; + Global Temperatures Decreased 0.09C In May

Swathes Of Canada Dealing With Heavy June Snow…

Even though we’re into June –the start of meteorological summer– there are regions of Canada still dealing with freezing lows and heavy snows.

Northern parts of Manitoba, for example, are contending with heavy accumulations through Thursday as an unseasonable Arctic front continues to ride anomalously-far south on the back of a weak and wavy ‘meridional‘ stream flow.

Manitoba’s brutal northerly winds and sizable accumulations of snow have even led Environment Canada to issue a winter storm warning for the province’s northern tiers. The agency’s official forecast is for 30cm (11.8 inches) to fall Thursday, to go along with the 20-30cm that settled Wednesday.

It wouldn’t be a true start to summer in Canada without winter storm warnings and snow, reports theweathernetwork.com, who provide the following graphics.

Manitoba isn’t the only Canadian province dealing with ‘the return of winter’.

Parts of Newfoundland and Labrador are also continuing to see heavy, persistent snow thanks to a cold onshore flow off the north Atlantic — this is set to be the region’s snowiest start to June since at least the year 2000 (when almost 30cm/11.8 inches settled at Nain):

And likewise on Vancouver Island, the snow is lingering this year…

…Vancouver Island Snowpack 150 Percent Of Average

Many mountains on Vancouver Island are still covered in snow — a sure sign that it’s been a cold spring.

According to Environment Canada’s Derek Lee, spring on Vancouver Island was between 1.5-2C below the average, with many locales suffering their top-five coldest springs on record, including Campbell River which logged its fourth coolest.

It was also wetter than average, which in the mountains has translated to a snowpack that is 150 percent of the norm for the time of year, helped, of course, by the persistent chill.

Lee concludes that Vancouver Island’s wait for warmer weather could last into August due to a persistent La Niña weather pattern that is defying predictions by refusing to weaken: “July will see cooler affects still lingering and it might not really be until August that we get into that normal seasonal trend,” said Lee.

Earth’s climate system is also throwing us something of a curve ball this year: a third consecutive La Niña.

According to NWS meteorologists, three consecutive La Niñas are so rare that climate science isn’t certain what it could mean; generally though, the odds favor colder-than-average temperatures and increased snowfall (for most).

“Severe Cold Spell” Warnings Issued In Zimbabwe

Following the ‘rare and widespread frosts‘ that swept Southern Africa earlier in the week, Zimbabwe’s Meteorological Department is now warning of a powerful polar front is about to traverse the length and breadth of the country.

Bulawayo, for example, Zimbabwe’s second-largest city, is expecting record-threatening lows of 6C (42.8F) and below; and it isn’t alone, Matabeleland South, Masvingo and parts of Manicaland provinces have also been instructed to brace for “severe cold weather”, which is forecast to intensify further-still as the month of June progresses.

“Bulawayo and Harare Metropolitan, parts of Midlands, Mashonaland East, Matabeleland South, Masvingo and Manicaland Provinces [will] be cold at first, with clear skies and chances of ground frost,” said the Met Department in a recent report.

Head Meteorologist James Ngoma has called that people must keep warm as temperatures will be cold until at least Saturday: “We are expecting cold conditions for southern parts of the country. We advise people to keep warm during this period,” he said.

Ground frosts have been noted for the past two weeks in such regions as Matopos, Kezi and Plumtree, which have proved problematic for farmers there.

Last year, several horticultural farmers across the country counted substantial losses after hard frosts affected their crops following a an unusually fierce cold spell. Temperatures fell significantly in some areas which caused damage to tomatoes, peas, butternut and potatoes, reports allafrica.com. The adverse weather conditions caught growers unaware as they were expecting bumper harvests thanks to plentiful rainfall.

And this is the threat this year, too — how low will the temperature go….

Global Temperatures Decreased 0.09C In May

The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) reading for May, 2022 has come in at just 0.17C vs the multidecadal average, continuing the overall downward trend since 2016’s peak, now down approx. 0.54C since then.

A continuation of this overall downward trend is expected over the coming months –with the odd bump along the way: climate is ‘cyclic’— as low solar activity, a lingering La Niña, and the aftereffects of Hunga Tonga’s monstrous ‘mesospheric’ eruption continue to influence our planet’s climate.

However, despite the 15x NASA/NOAA AMSU satellites revealing global temperatures peaked back in 2016, MSM fairy tales of linearly-rising temperatures and rapidly-melting polar sea ice are still being published, stories that continue to veer ever-further away from our actual climatic reality in favor of propping-up a poisonous politicized narrative:

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre). Prepare accordingly — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    2020 was surely a Tipping point in the Global Climate.
    With 2016 being the warmest the only way is down.
    It was Sept 20, 2020 when I posted my famous
    “Unimaginable Cold Coming This Winter” post.
    Then we had the Texas Freeze, killing over 700 people in Feb 2021.
    The reason: 3 Periods of 30+ days of no sunspots versus
    11 years earlier when we had only 2 Periods of 30+ days of no sunspots
    resulting in the 1,000,000 Frozen fish Kill in the Everglades of Jan 2010.

    Now we have THREE El Nina’s in a row, starting in 2020!!!
    AWESOME: The Future is Cold!!!

      Did you mean 3 LA Nina’s in a row?

      1. Michael Peinsipp

        Hey you know the thing!

      2. Dallas Schneider

        Yep! La La La!

      Nasa declared that 2020 was the warmest year on record.
      They did that by retrospectively lowering the figure for 2016.

    I receive a daily email from AT&T called “News for you.” This morning it told how climate change could spell the end for midwestern corn by century’s end. Oh brother, they just won’t quit. I’m thankful for Electroverse for keeping me updated on what is really going on- cold, cold and more cold. This is the coldest Spring we’ve had in Arkansas in years. I have had to relight the pilot light on my gas stove several times. I now have it turned off, hopefully, for the last time till Fall.

    These idiots can’t seen to realize that IF the northern states and Canada WERE to warm up it would open vast parcels of the north to agriculture. That would be a GOOD thing.

    I know from my own study of history that humanity has advanced during warm times and declined during cold times. Right now we are seeing what cold can do. I prefer warm.

      Same here in sunny Manchester…cool this morning but at last starting to warm up

    2. Michael Peinsipp

      Try explaining that ” IF the northern states and Canada WERE to warm up it would open vast parcels of the north to agriculture.” to AGW sycophant’s.
      They will tell you ‘you are lying, you are a racist (?) and that you know nothing about Science.’
      And they are the people who buy EV cars and believe electricity comes from Unicorn farts!

      1. Dallas Schneider

        It’s really trying to keep up the quality of my electricity from my
        Unicorn farts. It seems it varies with what they eat!!
        I am very concerned about keeping up in this cooling climate with the planetary alignment complicating the situation about maintaining my
        supply of Mexican beans!!! It seems they work best.
        Any solutions?

        1. Scott

          My goodness, I’ve been trying to get the unicorns to switch to Mexican beans for ages. This ‘Beefarino’ is just too expensive.

    Just came by to report that Killington Ski Area (Vermont, USA) is still open for skiing this weekend. https://www.killington.com/the-mountain/conditions-weather/current-conditions-weather
    I grew up across the way in NH and recall going hiking and camping in the Green/White Mountains this time of year – don’t remember snow in June though. But that was 40+ years ago, so who I am to believe, climatologists or my own lying eyes and failing memory…

    Random Facts here from NASA about Mars:
    ” The Martian atmosphere consists of approximately 96% carbon dioxide”
    “the surface gets so cold that as much as 25% of the atmospheric CO2 condenses at the polar caps into solid CO2 ice (dry ice)”

    So it seems to me our Greenhouse gas theory isn’t working so well on heating up our little sister planet!

    What’s up with that? Just asking!
