Winter is coming in hard and strong this year, and it’s taking names ACROSS the Lower-48. Hundreds of new low temperature records have been set over the past few days alone, but all have been eclipsed by the “biggie” set Sunday in Montana.
HUNDREDS of cold and snow records have fallen of late: from Texas to Montana, many of the lowest temperatures and the highest snowfall totals ever recorded at this time of year are not only being broken, they’re being SMASHED.
Serving as just a few examples:
The National Weather Service reported two broken snowfall records at their Marquette office: “We recorded 8.3 inches [on Sunday], which breaks the old record of 3.1 inches set in 1976 [solar minimum of cycle 20]! This recent snowfall also established a new monthly snowfall record for the month of October at our office. Total snowfall recorded for the month stands at 19.2 inches! This breaks the old record of 18.6 inches set in 1979.”
Eastern Idahoans woke to bone-chilling weather Monday morning, reports eastidahonews.com. According to NWS data, Idaho Falls saw a low of just 1F, utterly shattering the previous record of 17F. In addition, Pocatello reached 3F, smashing its previous record low of 13F. The previous day, Sunday, also saw new record lows of 8 degrees in Idaho falls and 11 degrees in Pocatello.
As detailed within links above, the record books have been rewritten from Texas to Montana–but it’s that latter state which claimed the “biggie” during the early hours of Sunday morning, October 25, 2020.
According to NWS data, and as reported by ABCnews.com (one of only a few MSM outlets covering this, but even they bury it under the Cali wildfires): “The temperature in Montana fell to a record breaking 29 degrees below zero, the lowest temperature measured at an official climate station anywhere in the lower 48 states so early in the season in any year.”
That’s a rather ugly, long-winded sentence — so I’ll break it down for you: “the Grand Solar Minimum is upon us, so get your s**t together already!”
The Washington Post has since covered it too, to be fair (though they don’t run it as the headline), writing late Monday evening: “Temperatures throughout much of the Rockies dipped below zero to start the week, falling as low as minus-29.2 in Potomac, Mont., early Sunday — the coldest temperature ever observed this early in the season across the Lower 48.”
The WP calls the ongoing cold “off the charts, with an air mass more typical of December or January than late October.”
Corby Dickerson, a meteorologist at the NWS in Missoula, notes that the U.S. historical temperature database contains 14.5 million observations from Oct 1 to Oct 25, and that Potomac’s reading on Sunday morning was the coldest!
“It’s truly remarkable,” said Dickerson. “There’s no other way to describe it.”
A slew of other all-time benchmarks have come crashing down.
Two out of the past three mornings have been among Missoula’s coldest three in October in recorded history, and more records are expected to fall later in the week.
“I’ve been describing it as a once-in-a-century event,” concluded Dickerson. But I’m not so sure it’ll be another 100 years before the return of such extreme LOW TEMPERATURES. Evidence is building to suggest the mid-latitudes are now REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.
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 new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
