Record Snow Falls on Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain

As originally reported by taiwannews.com.tw, a punishing cold front has delivered record breaking snowfall to Taiwan’s highest peak of Yushan (玉山), along with an “orange” cold alert for the counties of Hsinchu, Miaoli, and Taoyuan.

Yushan — Taiwan’s highest mountain at almost 13,000 ft (3,950 m) above sea level — observed snow accumulations of 9.85 inches (25 cm) late last week — the heaviest 24-hour total in two decades.

The Yushan National Park Management Office said the mountain is one of the country’s most popular climbing routes, and with the main peak now blanketed in deep in snow, the office is advising all climbers be well prepared and carry the appropriate equipment.

Meanwhile, Hehuanshan (合歡山) — an 11,150 ft (3,400 m) high mountain in Central Taiwan — was also snowed under with a “rare” 7.9 inches (20 cm) of powder reported here.

Furthermore, “yellow” alerts have been issued for Taipei, New Taipei, Keelung, Hsinchu, Taichung, Changhua, Nantou, Yunlin, Chiayi (city and county), Tainan, Kaohsiung, Yilan, Hualien, and Kinmen with the unusual cold front expected to linger well into next week.

In fact, looking at the latest GFS run, much of Eastern Asia will suffer anomalous cold over the coming days…

…as the lower-latitudes continue to refreeze in line with historically low solar activity.

NASA has recently revealed this upcoming solar cycle (25) will dip further still, to become “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.


Don’t fall for bogus, warm-mongering political agendas — IPCC: “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms” — the reality is proving somewhat different, isn’t it…

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