Foot Of Snow In 3 Hours Hits Northern Japan, Still Coming Down

Rapidly developing low-pressure systems combining with a fierce Siberian blast are bringing heavy snowstorms to Japan’s northern prefecture of Hokkaido and northeastern region of Tohoku, hot on the heels of last months truly historic totals.

Otoineppu Village, Hokkaido, for example, registered a whopping 31cm (a foot+) of snow during a three hour period on Wednesday.

Blizzards are continuing across northern and eastern Japan, and local weather officials are warning of road closures and near-zero visibility. The substantial drifts have also seen the cancellation of hundreds of flights across the country.

James Reynolds, self-proclaimed “snow lover”, paints the picture:

Looking to Thursday, even colder air is set to stream over the majority of Japan, reports, bringing heavy snow to a wide area. During a 24-hour period –Thursday morning through Friday morning– as much as 70cm (2.3ft) of snow is forecast along parts of the Sea of Japan, including Tohoku, and up to 50cm (1.64ft) in Hokkaido and Niigata.

Additional snow is expected Friday over a large portion of the Japanese archipelago.

Weather officials are advising people to be on the alert against stormy winds, high waves, and also further traffic disruptions caused by blizzards and mounting snow drifts. People should also be vigilant against avalanches and power outages. And it is advisable to keep updated on the weather and refrain from going out unless absolutely necessary, concludes the article.

Record Lows Sweep Kashmir

The mercury plunged several degrees below the freezing mark across Kashmir on Wednesday, with the Pahalgam and Gulmarg resorts witnessing record low minimum temperature this winter, according to officials.

Pahalgam, located in south Kashmir Anantnag district, logged a low of -11.6C (11.1F). That was one of the regions lowest ever recordings–certainly the chilliest of the season so far. Gulmarg, the famous skiing resort in Baramulla district, suffered -11.5C (11.3F). That made it the resort’s fourth-straight night at -10C or below, officials confirmed — another record.

An unusual chill has been dominating northern India in recent weeks.

And the cold has started spilling south, too, breaking benchmarks in major metropolises, including Mumbai:

Eastern Europe Is An Ice Box

While Western and Central Europe has so far escaped the harshness of winter (-3C/26.6F in SW England this morning, mind), it’s a different story for the East, including deep into transcontinental Russia.

A mass of blues and pinks (indicating below-average temps) have dominated over the past few weeks, a setup that isn’t forecast to change anytime soon. In fact, extended GFS runs only show the cold intensifying into late-Jan:

GFS 2m Temperature Anomalies, Jan 29 [].

Extreme frosts have invaded the Czech Republic in recent days, reports The village of Kvilda-Perla, Czechia reported an astonishing -27.3C (-17.1F) on January 12.

Other stations also logged extreme cold: -26C (-14.8F) was measured in Rokytská Slať, and -23.5C (-10.3F) in Jizerka. But it was freezing across the whole of the Czech Republic, continues the article: “In Teplice nad Metují the thermometer showed -13C (8.6F), in Karlovy Vary -7.8C (18F), in Liberec -10.6C (12.9F), in Prostějov –5.5C (22.1F) and in Brno -7C (19.4F),” said Czechia meteorologist Dagmar Honsová.

Harsh frosts are set to persists this week, including further west, too, in Slovakia, Poland and Hungary where readings of -25C (-13F) are expected. Lows of -25.8C (-14.4F) have already been registered in the Baltics, and -20C (-4F) has been noted in the Ukraine, as winter-proper threatens a wider portion of the continent.

Likewise in Turkey, the basins and valleys, already besieged by deep snow cover, will see temperatures drop to as low as -30C (-22F) over the coming days, and heavy snowfall will persist across the mountainous regions. Severe frosts, although not so strong, and further snow should also surprise Turkey’s metropolitan cities, including Istanbul, Ankara, and even cities along the southern coast.

Shifting attention to the Middle East, Lebanon, Syria, and Israel are on for heavy snowfall, and to quite low levels, too. While very cold weather, and snow below 1,000m (3,280ft), should again rip through northern Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and even Egypt and Libya.

U.S. NatGas Jumps Higher On “Extreme Cold” Forecast For Late-Jan

U.S. natural gas futures jumped 4.4% to a six-week high on Wednesday after the latest forecasts confirmed earlier outlooks for an extremely cold last week of January. Also, traders also noted production has been slow to return following freeze-offs and other weather-related declines over the New Year weekend.

Lingering cold since New Year’s Day continued to cause well freeze-offs and other production declines in several regions, reports, including the Permian in Texas and New Mexico, the Bakken in North Dakota and Appalachia in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.

Refinitiv, an American-British global provider of financial market data, recently projected average U.S. gas demand, including exports, would slide from 133.5 bcfd this week to 132.7 bcfd next week, helped by a brief reprieve in the cold weather, but that traders couldn’t ignore latest forecasts for the final week of January, which called for the return of “extremely cold weather” to much of the CONUS.

Refinitiv added total U.S. gas demand plus exports hit a preliminary record of 150.9 bcfd on Jan 7, topping the current record of 150.6 bcfd on Jan 30, 2019, and also the 147.2 bcfd hit on Feb 12, 2021–just before record-smashing Winter Storm Uri left millions without power after freezing gas wells and pipes in Texas and other U.S. Central states, killing 702 people in Texas alone.

Traders said demand for U.S. LNG will remain strong so long as global gas prices keep trading well above U.S. futures as utilities around the world scramble for LNG cargoes to replenish worryingly low stockpiles in Europe and meet surging demand in Asia:


A quick word on Canada — “freezing”. Polar lows are sweeping eastern swathes of the country this week, and electricity consumption is hitting record levels across multiple provinces.

Taking Quebec, where record-high consumption was noted on Tuesday, January 11, after the mercury took a plunged. According to data provided by Canadian meteorologist Simon Legalt: -38C (-36.4F) was registered in Chibougamau, Abitibi and Matagami; wind chills touched -44C (-47.2F) In Sibukoma; Montreal suffered -27C (-16.6F), with the city’s usually packed parks and streets deserted; while in Toronto, daytime highs were holding at around -20C (-4F).

Environment Canada has issued warnings of extreme cold across Canada’s east, including Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, with the west enjoying a much-needed break for the recent historic lows and snows:

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

    So why should a report of natgas be name boe – that is barrels of oil equivalent, a measure which matches the btu (British Thermal Unit) content of gas equal to that found in a barrel of oil
    Also bcfd – Billion Cubic Feet Daily
    Some farmers in Kentucky there at Bowling Green north of the Corvette Plant have their own backyard gas wells. The Corvette Plant gets their gas from the deep Louisiana gas fields.
    Also I wonder how the gas storage fields in Ohio and elsewhere that store the gas from the Louisiana and Texas fields all summer long getting ready for the big winter suction on them are holding up?
    My hometown oil field in the Permian Basin in Iraan, Texas was run by Marathon Oil who produced oil into a pipeline that went to Houston refineries, then was pipelined to Findlay, Ohio. At their HQ they had operators controlling the product flow along those hundreds of miles. It was quite a promotion to go from a gas plant operator in the middle of nowhere West Texas to civilization in Ohio, or was it? LOL – Nice warm weather to dark cold overcast climate! LOL

      I live in Metcalfe County KY where we have 3 (THREE) gas pipelines running thru our county. One pipeline is +- .5 mile NNW of my Farm.
      AND the Northern portion of the county is a gas storage (underground) site for LG&E (Louisville KY).

    With reference to the Jan.13, 2022, Electroverse post, can anyone explain why, as the Antarctic is reported to be experiencing extreme record breaking low or cold temps, at the same time that the Antarctic Sea Ice Extent and Area is approaching 20% less than the mean over many years? The latest reported data seems to show 4.9 x 10(6) SqKm; (let’s call them Antarcs), 1.2 Antarcs less than the 6.1 Antarc Mean, or 19.7% less in both extent and area. The only thing that I can think of to explain it would be lots of unreported sub surface (both sea and land) volcanic warming of the local ocean from below. Billy Best. Standing by, very wet in Vancouver.

    1. If you look here you can compare the sea ice anomalies month by month since 1980.
      Last January (2021) and January 1980 are not that much different, it’s just the summer melt, it all refreezes come winter.
      It’s worth having a play with the tools here. The Antarctic seems little changed in 40 years but the warming we have had is quite apparent in the Arctic.

      Too cold to snow so no net ice gain and over time they get ice loss from sublimation?

      More than an earthquake a day average in the South Sandwich Island area of Antarctica where volcanos are active. 33 quakes in the last 30 days:,-60.0293&extent=-30.29702,-3.7793&range=month&listOnlyShown=true&settings=true

      New snow forecast for down there is around the coasts, not much inland:—add-more-layers/overlays?snowAccu,next10d,-70.110,92.813,3

      -37F inland:—add-more-layers/overlays?temp,-70.110,92.813,3

    4. Matt Dalby

      It could depend on what the term Antarctica means, i.e. does it refer to just the landmass, or does it include the surrounding oceans and if so to what latitude?
      The amount of sea ice that can form will be affected by wind speed and direction as well as temperature. If the seas are too rough then they will freeze at a slower rate. If winds are often from the south this could blow newly formed ice north into warmer water before it has the chance to consolidate and bond to the land/older ice.
      Finally there could be a lot of “adjustments”, a.k.a. data tampering going on to try and get the data to fit the model predictions as happen recently with the DMI Arctic data.

    Looks like they even have graphene micro-miniature submarines (with periscopes) along with assorted parasites and general misc. debris in the vaxx(s) and vaxxed victims blood. Some interesting footage and commentary.

      “Verizon will launch a faster, brawnier 5G service on Jan 19” — I found that quote among the comments below that Natural News article.

      Are people still being dumb enough to get boosters? The graphene will migrate out if they stop getting re-injected. If it doesn’t kill or damage them first.

        Deb, Jacinda’s jackboots are pushing useless jab #3 here, as well as foisting #1 on the children while they’re still on summer holiday. Even though some of your fellow countrymen (commentors here) believe we’re all locked-up zombies worshipping the witch, there’s a YUGE number of we purebloods refusing to ‘roll up the sleeve’ and/or bend over and take it up the ****.

        But hey, it’s cyclone season, and ex-tropical cyclone Cody is bearing down on us, bringing gifts of surf along the coast and rain for the gardens… then by early next week it looks like it’s sucking up cold air (from Antarctica) to drop SNOW on our Southern Alps: that’ll really freak out the Greenies and Climate Nutters. Cheers!

          Glad to hear some people are standing up against the tyranny.

          Now that reputable German doctors, as well as those Spanish labs and doctors, have found all sorts of foreign matter in the vaccines, perhaps the lawsuits will begin. There should be enough honest people out there to get some traction with both civil and criminal suits, and that should snowball as more and more comes to light.

          Hang in there!

        “The graphene will migrate out”… single atom sized thin sheets [FYI…that’s as small as things get in this Electroverse… but not in the Holyverse] nanoparticles that seamlessly pass through the blood brain barrier and can penetrate deep into cells and combine with and alter DNA will just get flushed out of the system with a simple lime in the coconut detox concoction, a bit of voodoo and a lot of prayer… everbody noes dat.
