Snow is a thing of the future, it would appear, the near future; all-time snowfall records are under threat across Europe and North America in March…
Europe set for Historic Spring Snowfall
Beginning Friday, March 12, Britain will be buffeted by a brutal polar air mass.
Snow could settle as far south as central England, with Wales and Scotland dead-certs for disruptive flurries throughout Saturday — the UK Met Office has issued weather warnings for snow and ice.
Looking to early next week, the Alps appears set for record-volumes of mid-March snow with the mountains’ higher elevations easily picking up over a meter (3.3 feet).
The Balkans could be set for similar totals.
Eyeing further ahead, the first day of astronomical spring (March 20) is expected to deliver a violent dumping of global warming goodness to Spain — the nation has already set a host of impressive cold-weather feats this winter, and the big freeze looks set to continue into spring. Spain broke its coldest-ever recorded temperature twice this season, and Spaniards were skiing the streets of Madrid in January following unprecedented snowfall.
See the latest GFS run for Europe below, and note the crazy mid/late-March totals also forecast for western Russia, Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan (lower right of the map):
North America braces for Weekend of Record-Busting Blizzards
Thousands of March cold-records are about to be obliterated across North America, particularly in the Central United States, adding to the almost 10,000 new low-temperature records set in February.
Heavy snow will strike a number of states over the next few days, including Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri.
The Pacific Northwest will also be smacked.
Just taking Cheyenne, Wyoming as one example: current forecasts are calling for 36 inches of pow-pow Friday morning through Monday morning, with blizzard conditions possible starting Saturday and Sunday. If the city manages to pick up just 25.7 inches of snow over the course of three days –which it almost certainly will– then it will bust its all-time 3-day total snowfall record set between Nov. 19-21, 1979.
All-time cold-records are under threat ACROSS the United States, as well as in much of Canada:
Also, the models are still suggesting Texas could be hit by another freeze around March 24/25:
Sangay Erupts to 41,000 ft (12.5 km)
Ecuador’s Sangay Volcano exploded in dramatic fashion yesterday, March 11, firing volcanic ash high into the atmosphere.
The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned of an ash plume rising to 41,000 ft (12.5 km), which blocked out the Sun and blanketed nearby cities under a thick layer of ash — “strong” ashfall was detected in Cantón Guamote, including in Chambo, Riobamba, Penipe, and Guano.
Furthermore, satellite-based measurements of SO2 registered an impressive 25 kilotons (25,000,000 kg) within the plume, reports VolcanoDiscovery.com.
Volcanic eruptions are one of the key forcings driving Earth into its next bout of global cooling.
Particulates fired above 10km –and so into the stratosphere– shade sunlight and reduce terrestrial temperatures. The smaller particulates from an eruption can linger in the upper atmosphere for years, or even decades+ at a time
Today’s worldwide volcanic uptick is thought to be tied to low solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
Enjoy your weekend.
I’m off to filter my homemade Apple Cider Vinegar (for off-grid pickling!) — what are you doing to prepare?
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-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.
