Among the thousands of all-time cold-records set to fall across the U.S. this week, the city of Indy has made a solid start. Tuesday, Nov 12 wasn’t just cold and snowy — the day broke records going back 108 years.
Indy’s all-time record-low temperature for November 12 had stood since 1911 (solar minimum of cycle 14), but yesterday’s 4 AM reading of 13F (-10.6C) pipped it by 1F:
And the records didn’t stop there.
The mercury continued sinking throughout the morning, and had settled at a bone-chilling 8F (-13.3C) by 7:30 AM — a temperature the depths of winter would have been proud of, and also officially now the earliest day of the season that a single-digit reading has been clocked, breaking the previous earliest — the 4F (-15.6C) from Nov 17, 1959.
It’s worth noting, Indy’s average low for Nov 12 is 37F (2.8C), with the average high being 54F (12.2C).
In addition, Indianapolis set a new all-time snowfall record this week too.
The 2.8 inches (7.1 cm) of snow that accumulated on Monday, Nov 11 more than doubled the previous daily record — the 1.2 inches set back in 1995 (solar minimum of cycle 22).
And it appears Monday’s downtown totals would have been higher still, if not for the UHI effect:
The lower-latitudes are refreezing in line with historically low solar activity.
Yes, a few far-northern areas like Alaska and the Arctic are warming –slightly– but 1) no one lives up there so quite frankly, who cares, and 2) as NASA succinctly identify in their ‘Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map (below), these regions are expected to warm during periods of global cooling, as are the North Atlantic, Iceland and the southern tip of Greenland:
And regarding any Arctic sea ice melt –and the potential consequences for sea level rise– again, a non-issue. At least 90% of the planet’s ice is safely locked up in Antarctica which, for as long as we can tell, has been steadily advancing, comfortably offsetting the comparatively tiny losses observed at its northern cousin.
The Changing Jet Stream
Scientists have long-understood that studying the jet stream is key to understanding weather and climate, but to properly study the jet stream attention must turn to the sun — something not so widely perceived.
Low solar activity disrupts that band of meandering air flowing some 6 miles above our heads, reverting its usual tight Zonal flow to a weak Meridional one.
This wavy flow diverts cold Arctic air to the lower-latitudes –where us humans reside– and shifts warm Tropical air north:
Note the hysteria regarding the anomalous warmth over Greenland this summer.
Well, Greenland’s cold temperatures didn’t up and vanish, they didn’t escape Earth’s atmosphere and leak into space — they were simply diverted south by a wavy jet stream.
It is THIS mechanism which fully explains the far-northern-latitudes experiencing pockets of anomalous heat of late, and conversely the lower-latitudes suffering record-breaking cold:
We’ve known the basics for decades –as the below article from 1975’s Science Mag would indicate– but as they clash with the modern AGW consensus, they’ve conveniently been forgotten:
Don’t be fooled by bogus political ideologies — the lower-latitudes are refreezing in line with historically low solar activity. NASA has revealed this upcoming solar cycle (25) will be “the weakest of the past 200 years,” and they’ve correlated previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Our future is COLD, prepare accordingly — grow your own.
