While Western and Central Europe has been ‘under’ a wavy jet stream for the past few days (which has pulled-up hot African air), Eastern regions are most certainly ‘above’ it (with warnings of an “ultrapolar invasion” plunging south which could bring incredibly-rare summer snow to the Moscow region).
The majority of Europe has been reeling from anomalously cold temperatures ALL July, and still, while the West receives a brief heat reprieve, the East continues to suffer with heavy rainfall and historically low temperatures.
Moscow’s weather has been particularly gloomy this month, and things aren’t getting any better with forecasters now warning of an “ultrapolar invasion” hitting later in the week which could, astonishingly, bring sleet and even some summer snow to Russia’s cosmopolitan capital.
A powerful cold front is forecast to tear through northeastern Russia this Sunday, which will likely result in snow falling in and around the Arctic Circle, according to RIA Novosti news. “God forbid, not in Moscow,” meteorologist Tatyana Pozdnyakova was quoted as saying while reviewing the weather charts.

Still, Pozdnyakova warned, Muscovites should brace for more historic cold and heavy rain in the event that the snow misses the metropolis.
Prepare for the cold Russia, for as your prominent Astrophysicists Habibullo I. Abdussamatov, et al. have long been saying:
“We can expect the onset of a deep bicentennial minimum of total solar irradiance (TSI) in approximately 2042±11 and the 19th deep minimum of global temperature in the past 7500 years in 2055±11. After the maximum of solar cycle 24, from approximately 2014, we can expect the start of deep cooling with a Little Ice Age in 2055±11.”
–Habibullo I. Abdussamatov, Head of the Space Research Laboratory at the Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, Russia: Feb 01, 2012 (http://ccsenet.org)
The drop off is occurring almost exactly as the Russian’s predicted, and now NASA sees it too, with their recent SC25 forecast revealing it’ll be “the weakest cycle of the past 200 years” (https://www.nasa.gov):
More from Dr. Abdussamatov
Below is an excerpt from the 2016 book entitled Evidence-Based Climate Science (Second Edition).
Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov is quoted in chapter 17:
THE NEW LITTLE ICE AGE HAS STARTED
“Since 1990, the Sun has been in the declining phase of the quasi-bicentennial variation in total solar irradiance (TSI). The decrease in the portion of TSI absorbed by the Earth since 1990 has remained uncompensated by the Earth’s long-wave radiation into space at the previous high level because of the thermal inertia of the world’s oceans. As a result, the Earth has, and will continue to have, a negative average annual energy balance and a long-term adverse thermal condition.
“The quasi-centennial epoch of the new Little Ice Age has started at the end 2015 after the maximum phase of solar cycle 24. The start of a solar grand minimum is anticipated in solar cycle 27 ± 1 in 2043 ± 11 and the beginning of phase of deep cooling in the new Little Ice Age in 2060 ± 11.
“The gradual weakening of the Gulf Stream leads to stronger cooling in the zone of its action in western Europe and the eastern parts of the United States and Canada. Quasi-bicentennial cyclic variations of TSI together with successive very important influences of the causal feedback effects are the main fundamental causes of corresponding alternations in climate variation from warming to the Little Ice Age.”
THE CHANGING JET STREAM
During a solar minimum, the jet stream’s usual Zonal Flow (a west–east direction) reverts to more of a Meridional Flow (a north-south direction) — this is exaggerated further during a Grand Solar Minimum, like the one we’re entering now, and explains why regions become unseasonably hot or cold and others unusually dry or rainy, with the extremes lasting for an extended period of time.
Note the recent hysteria regarding the anomalous warmth lingering over Greenland.
Well Greenland’s cold temperatures didn’t up and vanish, they were simply diverted south by a wavy jet stream — and this is the main reason for the lower latitudes experiencing record low temperatures of late.
In fact, the United States just suffered it’s coldest October to May in recorded history.
Furthermore, as NASA points out, some regions of the planet actually warm during times of global cooling — the Arctic, Alaska and N Atlantic/S Greenland to name a few (though ‘warm’ to the Arctic, for example, still averages well-below zero, there is no additional melt):
Earth’s climate is cyclic, never linear — driven mainly by the sun.
And history is repeating.
Global average temperatures have been falling since early 2016, as the sun enters its next Grand Solar Minimum cycle — prepare for the return of the cold times.
