We’re fast approaching April, but this, the first of the GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM winters is refusing to let up.
At times, brief pockets of warmth have prevailed, giving the false sense of spring –I’ve been caught out a few times myself with regards to planting out cold-tender crops– but the Arctic is always looming, threatening to descend south on the back of a low-solar-activity-induced “meridional” jet stream flow.
Case in point: while the UK can look forward to some seasonable warmth on Monday and Tuesday, a violently buckling jet stream looks set to plunge the country back into full-blown winter during the first week of April:
UK on for Record April Snow
“Britain in for 20C mini-scorcher – and sunny spell to last NINE days,” reads a headline from thesun.co.uk.
“The blast of sunshine is expected to begin this weekend and continue well into April,” writes reporter Alice Fuller, who it would appear is incapable of deciphering a weather model for herself.
In reality, snow is forecast for swathes of the UK this weekend:
While visualized below is the “mini-scorcher” purportedly on the horizon:
Firstly, “mini” is indeed the word, as the “scorcher” runs for just two days (Mon & Tue), and not the reported NINE.
And secondly, it appears the pleasant spring temps will be quickly-chased by brutal Arctic cold and record April snow across the entire British Isles (as well as Scandinavia, Belgium, Germany, the Alps, & Turkey, among others):
At 186 to 384 hours out, the forecast is within the unreliable time-frame, and so is subject to change; however, multiple weather models (including the GFS and EMCWF) are in basic agreement — Britain (and Europe) can expect heavy, record-breaking snowfall next month.
Rare March Snow Blankets Turkey, Cyprus, Algeria, India, and Taiwan
Istanbul was battered by heavy snowfall on Wednesday, grinding the city’s traffic to a halt — the snow is an unusual occurrence for this time of year, reports dailysabah.com.
Although the meteorology forecast had warned of snow, most people were expecting the event to be a fleeting one, in a month usually associated with warm, if not outright hot, weather, continues the dailysabah.com article.
Temperatures dropped dramatically across Turkey on Monday, and the snow was particularly dense in the eastern parts: the capital Ankara was hit late Tuesday, and the snow continued into Wednesday reaching a depth of 30 cm (1 foot) — long traffic jams soon formed, as municipality crews worked to clear the roads.
Roads to 97 villages were closed due to snowfall in the central province of Çorum.
While the majority of village roads in the western province of Bilecik were also blocked.
Following a brief summer spell, Cypriots woke up to a chill Wednesday as temperatures plunged a full 3 degrees Celsius below the seasonal average.
A webcam near the Jubilee Hotel showed steady snow falling throughout the day.
Speaking to the Financial Mirror, a Met Office official said Cyprus will be leaving the hot weather behind as temperatures this week will hold around freezing across the higher elevations, while the Troodos mountains can expect further flurries on Thursday and Friday.
Arctic air has descended into northern Africa, too.
Ennahar Tv Plus on YouTube reveals “enchanting scenes of the world-rare Atlantic cedar trees clad in white” in Algeria:
Taiwan’s tallest peak, Yushan, also saw rare March snow on Wednesday.
According to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB), the temperature hovered around the freezing mark and at 7:10am on Wednesday morning, show began falling on the north face of Yushan.
The CWB said precipitation continued to fall throughout the day, but was a mixture of snow, sleet and ice pellets.
Unexpected blizzards thrilled tourists at Solang valley near Manali on Monday, reports timesofindia.com.
Heavy snow blocked many roads in Lahaul and upper Manali after more than 30cm (1 foot) fell in some parts.
Record snow also covered Hemkund Sahib–a Sikh place of worship and pilgrimage site in Chamoli district:
Furthermore, Total Snowfall fro the Northern Hemisphere took a jump back up on the latest observation point (from March 23) to some 350 Gigatons above the 1982-2012 average:
And finally, it would appear that Global Warming has taken the first quarter of 2021 off.
Temperature anomalies for the year to date (to March 22) reveal our planet has been “cooking” at just 0.09C above the 1991-2020 climatological average — hardly signs of an impending fiery doom:
Give it up, alarmists.
Find yourselves another crusade.
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.
