The Canadian Rockies Int. Airport usually records 3.8 cm (1.5 inches) of snow for the entire month of October, but in just one afternoon this week, it received more than TWICE that monthly average.
Tuesday’s snowstorm came in cold and quick, reports thefreepress.ca, and brought with it a shocking 8.4 cm (3.3 inches) of early season snow to the Cranbrook/Canadian Rockies International Airport — breaking a daily snowfall record going all the way back to 1901 (solar minimum of cycle 13).
And it’s been frigid ever-since.
Wednesday registered a daily high of just 0.9C (33.6F) — against the average for the time of year of 14C (57.2F). Then Wednesday night plunged to a staggering -9.3C (15.3F) — well below the 0C (32F) average.
In addition, both Kimberley and Fernie ski hills picked up 20 cm (7.9 inches) during the cold front.
A cold front which is far from over yet: “We have a weak system that’s going to push through on Sunday afternoon through Sunday night and we’ll probably see a couple centimeters of wet snow with that one,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Matt McDonald. “So anyone who’s planning on travelling this Thanksgiving weekend, we’re not expecting a major snowfall here, but be prepared for a little bit more snow perhaps.”
There is a ‘major snowfall event’ expected a little further south, however; with central and southern parts of North America, particularly across the border and into the states, forecast some truly historic early season totals:
GFS TOTAL SNOWFALL (inches) OCT 10 thru OCT 25
A violent buckling of the jet stream –linked to low solar activity– will funnel brutal Arctic air anomalously-far south, with practically ALL states on course to get walloped at some point over the weekend:
GFS TEMP ANOMALY (C) for SAT, OCT 12
Low solar activity is disrupting the jet stream, reverting its usual tight Zonal flow to a weak Meridional one. This wavy flow diverts Arctic air to the lower latitudes —where us humans reside— and for time-immemorial has heaped untold miseries on the established civilization of the day, rendering growing regions useless, leading to famine, unrest, war and ultimately the society’s collapse.
Overlaying the peak of past civilizations atop the GISP2 Ice Core data clearly illustrates the pattern:
And these cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar activity.
