Record breaking snowfall totaling 4+ meters (13+ feet) has now fallen in parts of France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland as the weekend’s monster storm continues to rage.
Winter has struck with a vengeance in the Dolomite section of the Alps, reports planetski.eu, with the below images revealing the historic levels recorded in Madonna di Campiglio, Livigno, and Piedmont, respectively:

Unprecedented early-December totals haven’t just been confined to the Dolomite mountain range either — regions and ranges across the Alps have reported record volumes of snow this week.
The multi-national historical area of Tyrol (or Tirol) –the north and east of which are located in Austria– is one such region, where the avalanche threat has been raised to its highest level, 5 — a number of avalanche-related deaths have already been reported, including a 23 year old in nearby Switzerland.
“As announced, unusually large quantities of fresh snow have fallen in the Alps,” said Elena Protopopow from the Tyrol Tourist Board. “In many places we are no longer talking about several centimetres, but several metres.”
Protopopow continued: “Of course it is great to see the snowfall … and [it] has reached record levels. But despite all the joy about the masses of snow, in many places in Tirol [there] were avalanche warnings.”

Parts of Switzerland have also been transformed into winter wonderlands:
The Pyrenees didn’t miss out, with disruptive snow totals burying the areas of Formigal, Spain and Canillo, Andora–among many others:
Looking ahead, Europe’s record breaking snow is forecast to persist until at least Monday, December 14, with The Pyrenees, the UK, Scandinavia and a swathe of eastern nations all predicted to see a snowy run-up to the Christmas holidays.
Stay tuned for updates.
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.
