By Tuesday’s end (Nov. 24), record breaking volumes of snow had buried Labrador, Canada — unprecedented accumulations that almost doubled previous benchmarks.
More than 50 cm (1.64 ft) of snow had already been reported in central parts of Labrador early Tuesday morning, with heavy snow continuing through the day bumping totals to 80 cm (2.6 ft) and beyond in some parts.
Blizzard warnings remained in effect all day as winds strengthened to create near zero visibility and treacherous travel conditions, reports theweathernetwork.com.
“It’s just going to be a dirty, dirty day across Labrador, really — no better way to put it,” said Mike Vandenberg, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), on Tuesday morning.
“Travel is not recommended,” he added: “If you can stay home, that would be great.”
The same snowstorm that delivered “record-obliterating” totals to Toronto on Sunday barreled through southern Quebec Monday, smacking the most easterly Canadian province Monday night through Tuesday:
According to Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter, Happy Valley-Goose Bay had picked-up 59 cm (1.94 ft) before 9AM on Tuesday, with the snow falling at an “unbelievable rate” of 5-10 cm per hour.
By Tuesday evening, a whopping 70 cm (2.3 ft) was reported.
Grinter pointed out these totals not only broke the record for Happy Valley-Goose Bay’s snowiest November day in recorded history but almost doubled it, beating-out the previous benchmark of 40.6 cm (1.33 ft) from 1944 (solar minimum of cycle 17).
“There is the potential to also break their 2-day November snowfall record of 70.6 cm [in a single day],” adds Grinter, with 70 cm having settled by the early evening and therefore a few hours left to run.
As a result of the unprecedented powder and rapidly deteriorating conditions, schools were closed in both Happy Valley-Goose Bay and North West River, as well as the regional College of the North Atlantic campus.
In addition, Canada Post issued a red alert for mail delivery in Happy Valley-Goose Bay and North West River, meaning the agency is suspending service for the day and isn’t sending workers outdoors due to “unsafe conditions”.
Air Borealis cancelled its Tuesday flights to coastal Labrador, citing the weather. And while the blizzard warnings stretched up the coast from Postville to Hopedale on Tuesday, conditions were expected to gradually taper-off through Tuesday night into Wednesday.
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.
