Winter has already besieged the Nordic island nation of Iceland, and its only September. The country is the first in Europe to feel the brunt of the front about to sweep the continent.
Residents of Siglufjörður, located in North Iceland, woke to a surprise wintry shock on Monday morning, reports mbl.is: ‘All of a sudden, the surrounding mountains and the whole town were covered in snow’ (see featured image above).
Winter also rocked-up early in Southwest Iceland, with the mountains receiving a rare, healthy dusting on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday:
According to the Icelandic Road Administration, ice on mountain roads in the West Fjords is causing treacherous driving conditions. Icy spots are also on the Holtavörðuheiði and Brattabrekka mountain passes in West Iceland, and on Þverárfjall mountain pass in North Iceland.
The forecast calls for additional icy roads and heavy snow through the remainder of the week, and into the weekend, plus all of next week. Winter is here–as it appears to be across the ocean to the southeast: mainland Europe will feel the brunt of the front Thursday through Monday. Here, temperature departures are expected to sink as much as 16C below late-September norms, particularly across France, Spain, Italy, Austria, the Balkans, and even Northern Africa:
As well as the cold, the Arctic front will also deliver heavy, potentially record-setting snow over Scandinavia and the Alps:
This signals an early-start to winter for Western Europe.
the COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. 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.
Prepare for the COLD— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
