Flake, flake, flake, little April snow-showers.
The Northern Hemisphere’s snowpack remains reluctant to return to 1982-2012 norms.
This real-world observation (aka fact) is a sign of the times, it is a dismantling of the AGW hypothesis, as well as a humiliation for modern climate science and every parroting proponent of an imminent heat-induced catastrophe.
Total snow mass for the Northern Hemisphere is holding at some 500 Gigatons above the multidecadal average (see the FMI chart below) — this reality is, and always has been, an impossibility under the Global Warming hypothesis:
Monster Snowdrifts block Scottish roads
Pictures from Aberdeenshire showed banks of deep, wind-blown snow on the morning of April 6.
The road between Fyvie in Turriff and Cross of Jackston in Inverurie was completely blocked following the extreme weather conditions, reports dailyrecord.co.uk — this event coming just a few months after the UK Met Office declared that AGW would render British snowfall a thing of the past by as soon as 2040.
What a joke:
In addition to record snow, record cold is also besieging the British Isles.
Staying in Scotland, the city of Aberdeen registered a low of -3.4C (25.9F) on April 5, busting its previous record of -3.2C (26.2F) set back in 1984—which is not only the title of an eerily prophetic dystopian social science fiction novel, it is also the year of the commencement of the solar min of cycle 21.
The mercury ACROSS the UK fell further on Tuesday and Wednesday, with parts of northern England registering -7C (19.4F) and below–some of the coldest April temperatures ever recorded in Britain. In fact, -10C (14F) was forecast for the Scottish Glens on April 7, and if that played out –something I’m working on confirming– then the all-time daily low for the date, which currently stands as the -8.9C (16F) set back in 1935, would have been comfortably surpassed.
The UK is struggling to see the back of what was a historically cold winter, particularly in Scotland — back in February it was reported that after nearly two months of largely sub-zero temperatures, Scotland was suffering “one of the longest spells of cold snowy weather this century;” and even now, as we enter the second week of April, there are few signs that old man winter is done.
Southern Croatia sees first April Snow ever
It was a historic meteorological evening in the city of Split, Dalmatia on April 6, reports dalmacijadanas.hr.
The temperature at the official DHMZ station, located on Marjan (a hill located on the peninsula of Split) dropped to 0.4C (32.7F) on Tuesday morning — a reading just a tenth of a degree above the lowest-ever minimum registered in April (from April 8, 2003).
Snow fell all over the city, continues the dalmacijadanas.hr article: “Southern Croatia does not remember when the last snow fell in April … it is the first known snow cover in Split in April in known history.”
Snow fell on the entire Split area, including Kaštela.
In other parts of Dalmatia (one of the four historical regions of Croatia, and home to Split), heavier totals were observed; here, as much as 20 cm (8 inches) of April pow-pow settled.
Kaštel Gomilica suffered a powerful snowstorm with hurricane gusts of up to 120 km / h.
Snow also fell along the coast in Vodice, Šibenik, and Brela.
While on the Dinara (a 100km-long mountain range), the mercury plunged to -24C (-11.2F)–again, one of the coldest-ever temperatures suffered in Dalmatia at this time of year, according to total-croatia-news.com.
Whitehorse Snowpack reaches 300% of normal
Even taking into account the city’s Arctic locale, this past winter was epically snowy for the Yukon capital of Whitehorse, reports theweathernetwork.com.
As of April 5, there was a whopping 70 cm (2.3 feet) of snow left on the ground across Whitehorse–the most on record for the date. And for reference, the snowpack usually peaks around 30 cm (1 foot), and then by late April the base has diminished to all-but zero — this year is proving quite exceptional, visualized in the below chart:
Temperatures are forecast to remain unusually cold over the next couple of weeks up north, meaning some of that snowpack will inevitably make it into May, perhaps even June! A formidable shot of January-like cold is en route to Alaska and parts of northern Canada this weekend, with Anchorage expected to extend its current streak of 161 days with temps below the freezing mark. The city could actually see its chilliest temperature of the season during the coming freeze — extraordinarily rare for April, concludes the theweathernetwork.com article.
For more on the record cold engulfing Europe and North America, as well as a brief explanation as to why this is happening, see yesterday’s article on the Grand Solar Minimum:
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.
