Record Cold Sweeps Massachusetts, + the Sun Fires-Off its first X-Flare in 4 years

Just days after Boston hit a scorching 100F, the city has gone and set a new record low-max, on Saturday, July 3 — further evidence of the swings between extremes we expect during times of low solar activity.

The high temperature in Boston touched a mere 60F on Saturday — this busted the city’s previous low for the date: the 61F from way back in 1914 (the Centennial Minimum/solar minimum of cycle 14).

Back on that same date –July 3, 1914– Worcester also logged its all-time low temperature for the day (also of 61F) — but that benchmark was shattered Saturday by a daytime a high that reached just 57F.

Hartford and Providence narrowly missed-out on suffering their coldest July 3rd’s of all-time — both cities registered 62F on Saturday, with the records being 61F and 60F, respectively–both also set in 1914.

“It must’ve been a really cold day on July 3, 1914 across New England,” said NWS meteorologist, Torry Gaucher.


Temperatures will fall again into the mid-50s Saturday night, with scattered showers and embedded downpours forecast through Sunday morning, reports the bostonglobe.com — but the weather should improve late Sunday.

The Sun Fires-Off its first X-Flare in 4 years

Now, Solar Cycle 25 has really begun.

On July 3, new sunspot AR2838 produced the first X-class solar flare since September, 2017.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory observed the intense ultraviolet flash:

The July 3 explosion registered X1.5.


Even though the flash was not Earth-facing, a pulse of X-rays still managed to ionize the top of our atmosphere, causing a shortwave radio blackout over the Atlantic Ocean, reports Dr Tony Phillips — mariners, aviators, and amateur radio operators may have noticed unusual propagation effects below 30 MHz just after 14:29 UT.

Solar flares are giant explosions on the sun that send energy, light and high speed particles into space. These flares are often associated with solar magnetic storms known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs).

X-flares are the strongest kind of solar flare.

They are typically responsible for the deepest radio blackouts and the most intense geomagnetic storms.

X1.5 logged on Jul 3.


This was the first X-flare of young Solar Cycle 25.

Many more are in the offing.

During the previous solar cycle (Solar Cycle 24) the sun produced 49 of them.

Forecasters believe that Solar Cycle 25 should be at least that active. We can therefore expect dozens more X-flares as the sun ramps up to its next Solar Maximum, expected ~2024/25–and given our ever-waning magnetosphere (due to the ongoing magnetic excursion), the impact is expected to be magnified.


As quickly as sunspot AR2838 appeared, however, it is already gone — on July 4 it rotated over the sun’s northwestern limb where it will spend the next two weeks transiting the farside of the sun:

If AR2828 manages to hold itself together, it will re-appear on the Earthside in late July — look out for some belated fourth of July fireworks then…


stay tuned for updates.

You should all be preparing for a grid down scenario.

It could happen at anytime, but particularly during this ramp up to SC25.

July 3 was a warning shot.


Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    In Texas it has been a cool summer. Dallas has only managed to not reach 100 2 times in 123 years. 1906 and 1973. I live in the exurbs and drive in to Dallas. There is a 5 degree UHI effect. If we do not break 100 this year that will be impressive.

  2. astradene

    I dont understand.. apart from earths magnetic field weakening isnt that a sign that sun is heating up? arent solar flares till now higher up than predicted? any explanation?

    What scientific evidence is there that our whole civilization could be destroyed as the Sun goes wildly unstable and produces a killshot and huge Tsunami’s as seen in this video…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEv3HRIVPUQ&list=PLQ1HhBu6DbgZgQ1GKaQv7tDto68gK4i1e&index=70

      This event is too far away to be absolutely certain. This is something you monitor and watch for changes. As the event gets closer, there will be more signs. If one looks at hurricane forecast, it is still inaccurate until about 48 hours out. I monitor it until it falls within the 48 hour window. At what point it becomes irrefutable is subjective. Use your intuition in the meantime.

      Did Barnard star system nova because of the galactic current sheet. What about Proxima Centauri. We don’t have the means to absolutely know.

      Would the powers that be tell you if it was. I doubt it.

      Maybe JWST will provide some more information.

      Use your intuition in the meantime.

  5. HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL MY AMERICAN FRIENDS.
    It seems appropriate that a new all-time cold record for this date would be set in New England, the “Cradle of the American Revolution”. One wonders how much fossil fuel has been burned since 1914, the previous all-time cold date. Climate alarmists alleged that burning fossil fuels drives dangerous global warming, but it’s not doing much warming at all. Climate catastrophe cancelled.

    Both Boston and Worcester bust low temp records from 1914 (the Centennial Minimum).

    I am reposting some of my recent papers today, because our once-free nations are in great peril. We have been conquered from within by our Marxist enemies, and are on the fast-track to Venezuela – poverty and dictatorship.

    The government insider outlined Trudeau’s secret plan:
    “Unregulated consumerism was unsustainable and people would have to learn to make do with less. The government would have to have more control over people to enforce their austerity and the wealth of developed nations would have to be redistributed to help undeveloped nations.”
    The clear intent is to use the global warming smokescreen to restrict economic and political freedoms by transforming Western countries into tightly controlled totalitarian states.

    THE REAL CLIMATE CRISIS IS NOT GLOBAL WARMING, IT IS COOLING, AND IT MAY HAVE ALREADY STARTED

    Planting was ~one month late across the Great Plains of North America in both 2018 and 2019. In 2018 the growing season was warm and the crop recovered, but in 2019 there was a huge crop failure across the Great Plains; we did not read about that in the mainstream press, did we?
    In 2019 fully 30% of the huge USA corn crop was never planted because of wet ground. Much of the grain crop across the Great Plains was not harvested because of early cold and snow in the Fall.

    CLIMATE CHANGE, COVID-19, AND THE GREAT RESET
    A Climate, Energy and Covid Primer for Politicians and Media

    SUMMARY
    We published in 2002 that there was NO catastrophic human-made global warming /climate change crisis, and green energy schemes were NOT green and produced little useful (dispatchable) energy. Dangerous global warming and climate change have NOT HAPPENED and green energy schemes have proved to be COSTLY, UNRELIABLE AND INEFFECTIVE.
    Global warming is NOT a threat, but global cooling IS dangerous to humanity and the environment. In 2002 we predicted that natural global cooling would start circa 2020, based on low solar activity, and that prediction is strongly supported by recent evidence.
    Politicians foolishly believed scary global warming falsehoods and brewed the perfect storm, crippling our energy systems with costly and unreliable green energy schemes that utterly fail due to intermittency, at a time when we need more cheap, reliable, dispatchable energy due to increased energy demand and imminent global cooling. The people of Australia, Britain, Germany, California, Texas and elsewhere have all suffered due to GREEN ENERGY FAILURES THAT WERE PREDICTABLE AND WERE PREDICTED.
    We published in March 2020 that there was no justification for the Covid-19 lockdown, and that it would cause great and needless harm. The Covid-19 lockdown is now estimated to have caused 10-to-100-times the damage of the Covid-19 illness, in terms of increased harm to individuals, families and the economies they depend on.
    The same leftist groups concocted and promoted the global warming fraud and the Covid-19 lockdown scam, for political and financial gain. Then these groups linked the two frauds, stating “to solve Covid-19 we have to solve Climate Change” – utterly false and foolish, not even plausible enough to be specious. Then these same groups proposed their Final Solution, the “Great Reset”, a Chinese Communist Party style dictatorship, a centrally-controlled economy where we live like poor slaves, lorded over by our wealthy political masters.
    The tragic reality is that the twin frauds of Climate-and-Covid have been accepted by most politicians. Some have covertly or overtly embraced extreme-left politics, and others are so simple-minded and gullible that they believe any falsehood that is repeated often enough. We are governed by scoundrels and imbeciles.
