A powerful Arctic trough is expected to bring record-breaking cold and snow to the United States Wednesday through Sunday, particularly across Western and Central regions.
Worst affected areas look set to be the Sierra and southern Great Basin where “hazardous, wintry travel conditions are to be anticipated,” says the NWS. A staggering 50+ inches (4.2+ feet) of early-season snow is forecast to fall across the California mountain ranges this week.
Looking a little to east, the picture doesn’t get much better — the GFS is picking up on 30 inches (2.5 feet) accumulating in the states of Nevada, Utah and Colorado over the next few days alone.
While turning north, parts of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana are also set for 30 inches on Wed through Sun, as are the already badly hit key growing regions of North and South Dakota, along with nearby Minnesota and Wisconsin. And the Northeast won’t be missing out either, with Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire looking buried on the fourth Thursday in November.

Significant snowstorms will impact travel through the Thanksgiving Holiday week — stay safe out there.
The Changing Jet Stream
The lower-latitudes continue to refreeze as historically low solar activity continues to weaken the jet stream. That band of meandering air flowing some 6 miles above our heads is having its usual tight ‘Zonal’ flow reverted to more of a wavy ‘Meridional’ one:
This entirely natural phenomenon diverts Arctic air to the lower-latitudes –where us humans reside– and is responsible for the U.S. busting nearly 9,000 all-time low temperature records over the past 30 days alone (vs just the 1,800 max):
Recall the hysteria regarding the anomalous warmth over Greenland during the summer. Well, Greenland’s cold temperatures didn’t up and vanish, they didn’t escape Earth’s atmosphere and leak into space — they were simply diverted south by a wavy jet stream, and it is THIS mechanism which fully explains the far-northern-latitudes experiencing pockets of unusual heat of late while the lower-latitudes have been suffering record-breaking cold and snow.
Yes, areas like Alaska and the Arctic are warming –slightly– but 1) no one lives up there so quite frankly, who cares, and 2) as hinted at above, these far-northern regions of the planet are expected to warm during periods of global cooling, identified by NASA in their ‘Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map‘ (other regions include the North Atlantic, Iceland and the southern tip of Greenland):
“But what about a melting Arctic and the consequences for sea level rise,” I hear your inner-alarmist cry. Well, again, a non-issue — at least 90% of the planet’s ice is safely locked up in Antarctica which, for as long as we can tell, has been steadily advancing, comfortably offsetting the comparatively tiny losses observed at its northern cousin.
We’ve understood the basics for decades, as the below article from 1975’s Science Mag would indicate, but as they clash with the modern AGW agenda, they’ve conveniently been forgotten.
Don’t be fooled by bogus political ideologies.
The lower-latitudes are refreezing in line with historically low solar activity.
Even NASA has recently revealed this upcoming solar cycle (25) will be “the weakest of the past 200 years,” and they’ve correlated previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Our future is one of ever-descending COLD — prepare accordingly — grow your own.
