The UK is set for a flurry of heavy and rare early-December snow this week, with even far southern regions on course for disruptive accumulations.
The first dusting is expected to arrive across the northern half of the UK today, Dec. 2, and more will follow in the coming days, to more southern regions, too, as a descending Arctic blast tightens its grip on the nation.
Heavy snow is likely to have buried vast swathes of the country by Friday, with forecasters suggesting the bitter wintry mix could even rage on until the middle of next week -at least- with hard frosts also expected: “In the clear periods between bands of wintry showers, frosts are likely and these could be sharp or even severe in prolonged clear conditions in north-western parts of the UK,” warns Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office.
Over the next 5 days alone, latest GFS runs reveal Britain will be hit by a substantial smattering of early-season snow as frigid polar air rides anonymously-far south on the back of a meridional jet stream—a setup shown to increase during times of low solar activity–such as we’re suffering now:
This week’s forecast is backed-up by the ECMWF, which is also showing snow stretching the length and breadth of the country:
Shifting attention to the mainland, the Alps and Pyrenees are on for some truly debilitating totals — sections of the Alps are forecast to receive almost 11 foot (3.28 metres) of global warming goodness over the next 10 days alone, while “bad weather” has already set in across the Pyrenees, tragically putting an end to the search for British hiker Esther Dingley, 37, who went missing last week.
Iceland and Scandinavia can also expect disruptive accumulations running into the feet over the coming days.
Also seeing heavy snow this week will be Portugal, central and southern Spain, central France, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Czechia, all of Austria and Slovenia, central and southern Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Lithuania, Turkey, Georgia, and even Morocco, and northern Algeria–in hindsight, it would have actually been easier to list the nations that aren’t expecting snow.
Be sure to stay tuned for updates — this could be record-breaking.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.
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.
