Snow isn’t a thing of the past, clearly.
Climate scientists dropped the ball on that one.
It is barely mid-October, 2020, and this is the scene in central Europe:
First Snow of the Season Hits Hungary
The first snow of the season has arrived in the Northern Hungarian Mountains.
On Wednesday, October 14, a healthy dusting of powder blanketed Hungary’s highest point, the 1,014 meter high Kékestető mountain. Although this wasn’t quite the nation’s earliest snowfall on record (which was set on Oct 5, 2016), it sure came close, and is still regarded as early.
As reported by hungarytoday.hu, it also snowed in Bánkút, Mátraszentistván, Galyatető, and the Nagy-Hideg hegy.
“Unusual” Amount of Snow Blasts Slovakia
According to Severe Weather Slovakia on Facebook, an “unusual” amount of snow for October 14 buried the Banská Bystrica Region village of Donovaly.
ThisIsSlovakia on Twitter also reported on Donovaly’s incredible snowfall, tweeting “winter came early this year!”
1+ Meter of Powder Buries the Austrian Alps
In the Austrian Alps, the situation is “really interesting,” writes SWS on Facebook, “because it snowed more than a meter of snow in recent days.”
If the situation remains favorable, the first ski resorts are expected to open their gates in just 2 weeks.
First snowfall of the year in Ukraine’s Carpathians
The Carpathian Mountains form a 1,500km-long range in Central and Eastern Europe. They stretch west to east in an arc from the Czech Republic to Romania.
Temperatures of -4C (24.8F), howling winds, and visibility of less than 50m (160ft) were reported in Ukraine’s section of the Carpathians yesterday, October 14. Accompanying the already inclement conditions was a bout of heavy early-season snow, with totals running into the inches, according to a post by the Chornohorsky mountain search and rescue team.
Latest GFS runs reveal Europe’s winter-like conditions will persist.
Yet more bone chilling cold and heavy snow will blast much of the continent as we progress through October:
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.
Also, 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.
