The state of Colorado just suffered it’s fifth coldest May in records dating back to the late 1800s, as solar activity continues its sharp decline.
28 US states recorded average or below-average temperatures during May 2019, with five recording their top 10 coldest Mays ever, according to data provided by NOAA — and you know when those perpetual warm-mongers are calling it cold, you best pay heed.
These cold states were Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Nebraska and South Dakota.
May in Colorado was so cold in fact, that the monster snowpack deposited this year is holding on much later than usual. As of a few days ago, Colorado’s snowpack was still a staggering 473% of normal:
In contrast, Alaska just recorded its sixth warmest May ever.
However, if you look at what NASA has to say, a warm Alaska is entirely predicted by a Grand Solar Minimum:
May 2019 also ended up being the second wettest on record for the lower 48.
Low solar activity continues to disrupt the jet stream, and, in the case of the lower 48 last month, sent a series of storms tearing across the continent. Combine this jet disruption with an influx of cloud nucleating cosmic rays, and you have a recipe for record precipitation, as well as a general cooling trend.
In fact, the US as a whole just had its coldest and wettest October to May in recorded history:
Furthermore, the lower 48 reported over 500 tornadoes during the month of May — double the 3-year average, and the most active 30-day tornado period since 2011.
For those pointing to this as proof of some AGW climate-induced nightmare, the fact is that tornadoes require unusually cool air to form, as Dr. Roy Spencer explains below:
Earth’s climate is cyclic, never linear.
And as our star enters its next Grand Solar Minimum cycle, the cold times are returning with it.
