Early-Season Snow Blasts Australia, “Worst Frosts in Decades” Ravage Europe with “Agricultural Disaster” declared in France, as Rare April Snow and Record Cold Hits UK

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Early-Season Snow Blasts Australia

A powerful Antarctic front is bringing early-season snow to Australia’s southeast.

The cold invaded Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia on Saturday, and gained further territory on Sunday, bringing freezing conditions, low-level snow, and the first frost of the year to many in the east.

Across vast regions, “temperatures are four to eight degrees (Celsius) below average for this time,” Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Jackson Browne told Daily Mail Australia, who’s agency is describing the ongoing conditions as an “Antarctic blast.”

Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain saw substantial snowfall, down to around 600 meters (1,970 feet):

While across the state of Victoria, snow accumulated below 900 metres (2,950 feet).

Places like Mt Buller and Mt Baw Baw were reporting impressive mid-April totals, with 22cm (9 inches) building as of Sunday afternoon–with the snow still falling:

“Cool temperatures were observed across ACT (Sunday) morning,” said the BOM. “It will be cooler and patches of morning frost are expected on Monday and Tuesday.”

And then on Wednesday, it’ll be the turn of western and central regions to cop unseasonable wintry chills:

“Worst Frosts in Decades” Ravage Europe with “Agricultural Disaster” declared in France

European winemakers are counting the cost after hard frosts ravaged the continent, reports the Guardian — and with further crop-crippling cold on the way, and grape harvests look set to be “decimated” across some of the best-known and most-prestigious wine producing regions in the world.

The French government has declared an “agricultural disaster,” and is readying an emergency rescue package after rare freezing temperatures have caused some of the worst damage in decades to crops and vines.

“It breaks like glass because there’s no water inside,” said Dominique Guignard, a winemaker in the Graves area near Bordeaux, as he rubbed the first shoots on his vines. “It’s completely dried out, there’s no life inside.”

Many industry experts say the damage from temperatures of as low as -6C (21.2F) was the worst in decades, partly because the frost followed unseasonably warm weather last week–yet another example of the “swing between extremes” witnessed during times of low solar activity (click below for more on that).

“It’s a national phenomenon,” said Jérôme Despey, the secretary general of the FNSEA farming union and a winemaker in the Hérault region. “You can go back in history, there have been [freezing] episodes in 1991, 1997, 2003 but in my opinion it is beyond all of them.”

In the Rhône Valley, the head of the local wine producers’ body, Philippe Pellaton, said it would be “the smallest harvest of the last 40 years”, with losses of 80-90% compared with normal. Winemakers are “shattered, desperate”, he said.

And those “frost fires” will remain lit across many regions into the second and even third week of April, with further blasts of Arctic cold inbound — looking at the latest GFS run (shown below), temperature departures of as much as 14C below the seasonal norm are set to persist:

Rare April Snow and Record Cold Hits UK

Europe’s historic April chill is being matched by rare spring snowfall.

The southern UK, for example, including London, is logging substantial spring flurries today, April 12:

Furthermore, the UK saw a low temperature of -9.4C (15F) on Monday, April 12 (at Tulloch Bridge in the Highlands)–the coldest ever recorded for the date in books going back to the 1800s–this morning’s temp tied with the previous all-time daily record set back in 1958. Oh, and with a mean CET of 5.7C to April 11 (and so before this mornings record cold), England was on for its 16th coldest April since records began 362 years ago, back in 1659, and its chilliest since the 5.5C of April, 1922.

Britain is currently suffering extreme cold for the time of year, a reality the UK Met Office routinely calls an impossibility under the fantasy doctrine and sham-tastic stratagem that is the Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis (mouthful, apologies).

It’s long-time we ditched the notion that our planet is warming at all, let alone catastrophically.

The latest UAH data, for March, revealed that Earth’s average temperature is now below the 30-year baseline; however, there are powerful forces propping up AGW –one of the most pernicious yet intangible being pride– and mere facts won’t ever be enough to bring it down.

Agenda-driven globalization requires a global revolution.

Either that, or a civilization-resetting cosmic catastrophe.

We will likely get both in the coming years.

Our “leaders” aren’t fit for purpose, and are nestled snugly within the pockets of controlling agenders — they are routinely proven spectacularly wrong on some incredibly crucial topics, yet still wield immense political power.

Take John Kerry as just one example.

The man has recently been named Special Presidential Envoy for Climate by the Biden Administration, but has one of the most embarrassing track-records when it comes to climatic predictions–we’re talking an ‘Al Gore’ level of embarrassment.

Back in 2009, Kerry announced that the Arctic would have its first ice-free summer in 2014.

He said the following back in 2009 when referring to Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK): “I wish he were really up to state of the art with respect to the science on global climate change. You have sea ice which is melting at a rate that the Arctic Ocean now increasingly is exposed. In five years, scientists predict we will have the first ice-free Arctic summer.”

The whole thing is a scam, clearly.

And the same-old proponents of the same-old lies keep getting rehired to push the same-old agenda.

Reject the dogma.

Promote the truth.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

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.

Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    Really enjoyed your “How to plant a spud” Love to hear how Portugal is growing for you.2

      Might move to Portugal one day. Or Korea,its nice. lets hope I dont get caught up in either the second korean war or world war 3 due to this mini (not so small now thinking about it) ice age should we!?

  2. Ron

    Huh. using hay for frost fires to save the crops. how come they don’t use solar panels, or windmills or batteries. So in this case its necessity over environment.


    Having an analytical mind I try to corroborate what I hear with other sources, and I found this – May 2017, a -7.2C frost in France – that’s almost summertime!

    Extant frosts are around -7C, according to what I have just read

    I plan to invest in a turnkey hydroponics farm in Thailand. Will Asia – located mostly in the equator – be affected by the GSM?

    Will there be extreme weather changes there that will affect crops similar to the Northern/Southern hemispheres?

    Oh, yes! What a surprise yesterday morning was for my corner of Surrey. Opened the curtains and it was all white already and snowing steadily. It got even heavier as the morning went on and while not settling on tarmac or patio, it managed about at least an inch everywhere else. It stopped late morning and by then end of the afternoon had all melted away.

    There was another frost this morning and for the second year in a row my Magnolias are taking a beating. Just come into flower and now looking all brown. another year of this and I would not blame them for upping roots and heading south.
