October was brutal in Norway. Cold northerly winds prevailed driving the low pressure systems which usually linger over the nation during Autumn unusually-far-south.
Norway’s October average temperature –for the entire country– was 1.4C below normal, according to the country’s Meteorological Institute. To find a colder October you have to go back to 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23 — the sun’s deepest minimum of the past 100+ years).
The northern county’s of Troms and Finnmark came out coldest, with measuring stations up there deviating a staggering 4C below the monthly norm.
Meteorologist Jostein Mamen blames the increase in north and northeast winds as the reason October was so cold — low pressure systems were blown anomalously-far south, meaning the country found itself in the grip of cold Arctic air masses.
The lowest temperature last month was measured in Finnmark — a teeth-chattering -27.2C on Oct 28.
Furthermore, 70cm (28 inches) of snow had accumulated in the Norwegian city of Tromsø by Nov 06 — the largest amount by this date since the 83cm that settled back in 1923 (solar minimum of cycle 15).
And the month of November looks set to continue that cold and snowy trend:
Also worth noting is that in Longyearbyen, Svalbard it’s been warmer-than-average for the past 107 months in a row –almost nine years! But rather than proving some bunk-AGW theory, this phenomenon actually serves as yet further evidence of the next & fast-approaching cooling cycle.
According to NASA (see their map below), a few far-northern regions of the planet do in fact warm slightly while the lower-latitudes -where us humans reside- refreeze — there is no ‘global’ climate, remember (for more, see the article at the bottom of the page).
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
