The growing season is shortening.
Spring is springing later and later each year as the Grand Solar Minimum continues its intensification. I am expecting a freeze here in central Portugal, a full 45 days AFTER the last average frost date.
“Polar Spring” to hit Europe as UK Met Office warns of 2000-mile wide “Arctic Dome”
Snow and ice are forecast to blast Europe this week.
The UK Met Office has warned of a 2,000-mile wide “Arctic dome” —whatever the hell that is– engulfing the continent, with few nations spared.
Spring will officially start on Saturday, March 20, but in Spain it will feel more like a return to winter, reports elpais.com — the country is expecting the mercury to plunge below -10C (14F) across its higher elevations, with additional rare March low-level snow falling in places like Burgos, León, Soria, Valladolid, and even Madrid.
In the UK, Scotland’s coldest winter for at least a decade will drag on in what the Weather Outlook has dubbed a three-week “polar spring”. Below the Scottish border, Northumberland, Cumbria, Liverpool and Manchester are also all set to suffer spring snow, according to Netweather, who see up to an 85% chance of settling flakes. Even the southern cities of London, Bath and Kent could also see snow, forecasters have warned — temperatures in the South East are set to hit unseasonable lows of -5C (23F).
Central Europe is on for something of a spring burial, with the Alps adding to the 3 meters (10 feet) of snow they’ve already suffered this week. Record-smashing totals will also hit Scandinavia and the Balkans. North Africa is also on fore rare, heavy late-March flurries.
Snow across the Northern Hemisphere is also holding some 500 Gigatons above the 1982-2012 average:
The 45 Volcanoes Currently Erupting
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.
Below is a list of today’s continuing eruptions, data courtesy of volcano.si.edu. Not included in the list are the myriad of mountains merely rumbling and readying for an eruption — the most notable exclusion is Fagradalsfjall, Iceland which has been enduring “a seismic crisis” since late Feb 2021 (50,000 quakes in just 20 days) as well as continued inflation (see video below the list). Fagradalsfjall is of concern because we have no data on it, no eruption has been detected in the area during the last 10,000 years, at least–the volcano may well be capable of producing a VEI 6+ stratospheric eruption which would cool the planet almost overnight.

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.
