Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) had issued multiple snowfall warnings across the southeast for this past weekend, and the weather did not disappoint.
On the back of its warning that the NWT will suffer a “colder-than-average winter” with “more snow,” ECCC reports that 19.4 cm (7.64 inches) of powder fell at Pearson airport Sunday, total’s which obliterated the previous Nov. 22 record of 7.6 cm (2.99 inches) set in 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23).
For a similarly significant amount of snowfall during the month of November you have flip the record books back 80 years, to Nov. 26, 1940, when the city saw 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). Sunday’s totals finished 3rd in the list of snowiest November days on record, behind Nov. 30, 1940, and Nov. 24, 1950.
And there’s more.
As pointed out by Toronto Weather Records, with 17cm (6.69 inches) of snow cover on Monday the day went down as Toronto’s “deepest” Nov. 23 since records began in 1955:
In addition, with 11 cm (4.33 inches) of snow cover remaining on Tuesday, the day entered the books as the city’s “deepest” Nov. 24 on record:
And finally, having two consecutive November days with a snow depth of ≥10cm puts this run in 3rd place for the longest stretches on record.
If the run continues, 1st place will be reached by Thursday, and will match both last year’s stretch (Nov. 12 to Nov. 15) and 1997’s (Nov.14 to Nov. 17):
Looking ahead, a few additional inches are forecast for the Toronto area Wednesday, flurries that will threaten the above record.
And then eyeing further forward, the GFS is suggesting more substantial snowfall could hit next week, as the calendar flips to December.
Stay tuned for updates.
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.
