Following on from one of the continent’s coldest winters of the past 50 years, South America’s meteorological spring is STILL delivering long-bouts of anomalous cold and snow.
Temperatures this week have held as much as 20+C below the seasonal average in many regions — with the nations of Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil (SE), Paraguay, and Bolivia worst affected:
TEMP ANOMALIES (purples denote -20+C below avg)
Some of the all-time low temp records broken this month include the 37F (2.8C) set at Rio Cuarto, Argentina on Oct 5 — which beat the previous record for the date of 38F (3.3C) from 2005. And the 33F (0.6C) observed at Marco Juarez, Argentina on Oct 7 — which comfortably surpassed the 36F (2.2C) set back in 1991.
Many more will have tumbled this week, the books simply haven’t updated yet.
While brief bursts of heat steal MSM headlines, it’s the persistent cold that’s the real story of 2019 so far, and not just in South America either — North America is currently bracing for its THIRD historic early-season snowstorm in as many weeks:
While Russia continues to topple all-time low temperature records:
And, returning to South America, Peru just suffered its coldest winter in half a century, according to climatology expert Lourdes Menis Álvarez: “Peru’s winter of 2018 was one of the coldest in almost 50 years — however, the winter of 2019 has surpassed it in intensity.”
These types of cold winters were once common-place in Peru, explained Álvarez, but of late, strong El Niños have brought “long summers and warm winters” to the region.
The evidence suggest the tide is now turning, however.
THE CHANGING JET STREAM
Studying the jet stream has long been an indicator of the weather to come, and to study the jet stream attention must turn to the sun.
When solar activity is high, the band of meandering air flowing some 6 miles above our heads is tight, stable and follows somewhat of a straight path. But when solar activity is low, as it is now, the jet stream loses strength and its band of fast-moving air becomes wavy which, in the NH, has the effect of dragging Arctic air south to much lower latitudes than normal:
This mechanism fully explains why far-northern latitudes have been experiencing pockets of anomalous heat of late, while the lower-latitudes –where us human’s reside– have been dealing with record-breaking, harvest-hampering cold:
THIS is the reality we’re living — not some folkloric, CO2-induced eco-tastrophe.
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
Even NASA agrees, in part at least, with their forecast for the next solar cycle (25) revealing it will be “the weakest of the past 200 years,” and they’ve correlated past solar shutdowns to global cooling here.
