A ‘white Christmas’ is an absurd prospect in New Zealand, but Southlanders could be forgiven for placing a bet or two this year after rare summer snow blanketed regions below 200m (650ft) Friday, December 11.
As originally reported by stuff.co.nz, temperatures plummeted overnight and snow, quite substantial in some parts, was falling in Northern Southland Friday morning–on State Highway 6 between Lumsden and Kingston, on Gorge Hill between Te Anau and Mossburn, and in hill country in the province.
There was also snow on the Remarkables mountain range in Queenstown, and flakes had settled in Arrowtown and in Garston. Photos of the snowfall were posted on the South Proud NZ Facebook Page with the caption: “Garston having a bit of a snow day today! So much for Summer huh?”
The country’s official weather agency -the Metservice- had predicted snow would fall to 700m (3,000ft), but in reality it settled to levels as low 200m (650ft), where it is still coming down, seriously impacting travel.
The Metservice has since gone to on to call the conditions “unseasonable”, but gave no comment re their blunder.
The flakes are forecast to continue through Friday afternoon and into Saturday–a climatic event consistent with a Grand Solar Minimum and not Anthropogeneic Global Warming (for more on that, click the link below):
The Arctic warms during times of otherwise “global” cooling. This phenomenon has long been accepted by NASA, among others (click here for more). But “warm” to the Arctic is still well-below freezing, there is no significant loss of sea ice, and as temperatures in the far-northern latitudes do climb its polar cold is displaced south where it freezes the lower-latitudes.
This is how ice ages begin.
Looking ahead, this weekend will be further evidence of this (shown below).
And while the MSM waves a warming Arctic in front of the world’s face, what they are failing to divulge, and as touched on above, is that all that polar cold isn’t simply up-and-vanishing, nor is it being sucked into space, or heated by the magical CO2-effect — no, instead the Arctic’s cold is simply being diverted south on the back of a low solar activity-induced meridional jet stream flow:
Furthermore, this weekend’s cold is forecast to only intensify over the coming weeks, particularly across east Asia where temperature departures some 20C below the winter norm will engulf a staggeringly-large portion of the continent:
These predicted temperatures are the definition of extreme, and will undoubtedly prove record-breaking, disruptive, and even deadly.
December’s average low-temperature in Yakutsk, Russia, for example, is -40.4C (-40.7F), dipping 20C below this will rank as one of the coldest readings ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere (with the coldest-ever being the -69.6C (-93.3F) in Dec.,1991 set at The Klinck station, Greenland–during the height of the global warming scare no less).
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.
