“Swings Between Extremes” Muddles the Seasons in Europe
Overall, Europe is suffering a colder-than-average winter season –by some margin– but it has also been a winter punctuated by brief spells of out-of-season warmth: see Grand Solar Minimum and the Swings Between Extremes.
Last week, Germany registered its biggest temperature swing since records began: an increase of 41.9 degrees Celsius in just seven days.
As reported by perthnow.com.au, climate researchers at the German Weather Service (DWD) said the country had never before experienced a swing this pronounced. In the central German city of Goettingen, a low of -23.8C (-10.8F) was recorded on Feb. 14, and then just a week later, on Feb. 21, the city registered a high of 18.1C (64.6F).
The previous record had been set in May, 1880 — back then, a temperature rise of 41C had been measured within seven days, said a DWD spokesperson. Note: 1880 occurred during solar minimum of cycle 11, at the start of the Centennial Minimum; the year also lands at the beginning of the “proposed” date of industrial revolution–it would appear not much has changed since then. I say “proposed” because the industrial revolution actually occurred between 1760 and 1840; however, these dates do not fit with the historical temperature charts, whereas 1880 does — this year, as highlighted by the vertical gray line in the below chart, received the lowest solar output since the Dalton Minimum (1790-1830)–in other words, it was only ever up from here.
The NASA chart reveals that Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) was on the rise from exactly 1880 until around 2000 — this 120+ years of cumulatively building solar output became so active and so sunspot-productive that it was designated as a Grand Solar MAXIMUM –the strongest maxima of the past 4,000 years, no less– and in turn –surprise-surprise– global average temperatures rose with it.
As we enter March, a return back to those extreme cold conditions is once again on the cards. Looking at the latest GFS run (shown below), central Europe’s 5-days of unseasonable late-Feb warmth will subside today, Feb. 26, to be replaced by fluctuating temps during the first few days of March before yet another blast of Arctic air is funneled anomalously-far south (by a meridional jet stream flow) starting March 5:
In addition, the mass of polar air that has lingered over northern Asia since mid-December (peeking in top right) threatens to spread westwards as March progresses — this development would seriously impact spring growing regions across the European continent.
The lingering polar mass has already delivered Siberia is coldest winter in decades, and, most recently, has blasted western Russia with a “snowpocalypse”:
As reported by themoscowtimes.com, a record-breaking blizzard left 30,000 people without electricity in Chelyabinsk over the past few days, with 12 additional districts declaring a state of emergency. In St. Petersburg, the heavy pow-pow prompted a 1,000-strong clearing crew to clean up the streets. While in the republic of Dagestan, local farmers had to to dig their cows out of deep snowdrifts (0:30 in the below MT video).
Heavy Snow Disrupts Water Supply in Japan
In other news, heavy snowfall continues to bury large parts of Japan this week, disrupting both traffic and the water supply.
The below video is published by Nippon TV News 24 Japan on YouTube, and it focuses on Japan’s second-largest city, Hokkaido:
Japan’s heavy snow is contributing to the Northern Hemisphere’s Total Snow Mass, which currently stands at some 700 Gigatons above the 1982-2012 average:

How are you preparing?
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.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
