The Northern Hemisphere’s total snow mass is sitting comfortably above the 1982-2012 average (by approx. 400 gigatons as of Nov 21) and it’s been that way all season.
Assisting these totals are the Pakistan mountains which are currently buried under “tonnes” of early season snow.
The peaks of K2 and Hindukush have been adding incredible depth to their snowpack of late. But coming as more of a surprise, many of the lower-lying and densely-populated provinces of northern Pakistan have also been buffeted by extreme snowfall events.
The below photos are of Swat, a district in Pakistan located just north of Islamabad:
As pointed out by mkweather.com, accumulations such as these wouldn’t be out of place in Canada or Russia; we’re looking at over 6 feet in many parts.
The central Asian mountains are recording exceptional volumes of early-season snow this year. Through Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and southwestern China, the snowpack is routinely off the charts–and that’s despite the impacts of the South Asian Monsoon which at this time of year should be characterized by cold and dry conditions: a “winter monsoon”.
Rare November snow even dusted Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul this morning (Nov 23):
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the Shimla district recently received its first November snowfall in 15 years:
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.
