Blizzards To Strike UK As Arctic Outbreak Engulfs Europe
Heavy blowing snow and lows south of -10C (14F) are on the cards for the UK this week, warns the Met Office.
The Met Office has issued weather warnings for Wednesday and Thursday, with bone-chilling lows, blizzard conditions and snow drifts likely thanks to strong, descending Arctic winds.
Daytime highs will struggle to rise above 0C (32F) across large parts of Britain, even in southern areas.
Forecasters have warned that the low temperatures will persist into next week, too, as a record-strong blocking high over Greenland threatens to consistently funnel polar cold over Europe , which will strain the continent’s already creaking energy infrastructure.
And while the UK shivers, some truly Baltic conditions will invade more central European nations.
As visualized by the latest GFS run below, nations such as Poland and Denmark, as well as the embattled –soon to be former– powerhouse Germany, which is on the brink of successfully committing energy suicide which will involve the murder of millions of its own citizens in the name of ‘saving the planet’, are about to endure record-breaking lows for the time of year.
Those ‘pinks’ and ‘purples’ represent temperature anomalies of as much as 20C below the seasonal norm.
While jaw-dropping snow totals are forecast, to boot:
And while this winter looks bad with regards to the energy situation, and it really does look bad, the messaging is that the ‘real difficulty’ will likely set in next winter. At least, this is what the energy CEOs are warning us:
Mammoth Sees 5 Feet Of Snow In 5 Days, With Another 5 Feet On The Way
Western U.S. mountains ranges are enjoying their best start to a December in decades, with Mammonth mountain, for example, enjoying 5 feet of snow during the first 5 days of the month.
The number ‘5’ seems to be the theme at Mammoth this season.
One of the biggest November snowstorms in Eastern Sierra history dumped 5-feet on the mountain back in early November. This made it Mammoth’s snowiest November of the past decade, barely a week into the month. It also assisted the Lower 48 in registering its snowiest November 16 on record.
And now, on the heels of these two 5-feet storms, another 5-footer is in the forecast, due to hit Thursday evening lasting through Monday.
According to UC Berkeley’s Central Sierra Snow Lab at Donner Pass, the Sierra could easily see another 60 inches.
The GFS is predicting similar totals:
The Sierra snowpack is looking good.
According to the National Weather Service, California’s statewide snowpack is (as of Dec 6) holding at 175 percent of the average: 165 percent in Northern and Central regions, and 213 percent in the South.
Japan Suffers -21C (-5.8F) And Heavy Snow
Japan’s first sub -20C (-4F) of the season hit yesterday, December 7.
A low of -21C (-5.8F) was in fact registered in Furano, Hokkaido, which is early in the season for such a reading.
The cold was accompanied by heavy snow in both Hokkaido and Aomori Prefectures.
Recent totals stand at well-over a meter (3.3 feet), with the snow still coming down.
Record-breaking dumpings besieged this part of the world last season, too.
Many Japanese locals suffered their snowiest winters on record, with a myriad logging totals north of 6 meters (20 feet).
Japan’s snow is helping overall Northern Hemisphere snow mass hold above the 1982-2012 average (FMI).
Likewise on Greenland, this season’s Surface Mass Balance (SMB) is unprecedented in books dating back to 1981:
The Global Average Temperature Dropped Hard In November
Despite the establishment’s ever-loudening cries of “Terrifying Terra-Firma Broiling” and their anti-human policy roll-out supposedly aimed at combating it, planet Earth actually COOLED last month, continuing the trend started in 2016.
According to the 15x NASA/NOAA AMSU satellites that measure every square inch of the lower troposphere (where us humans reside), planet Earth cooled drastically throughout November 2022, from 0.32C to just 0.17C above the multidecadal baseline:
The various regional departures from the 30-year average are highlighted below:
Note that all seven regions of the planet cooled last month, with the standouts being Australia and the Lower 48 which saw -0.6C and -0.66C drops, respectively.
A continuation of this cooling trend is likely over the coming months –with the odd bump along the way– as low solar activity, La Nina, and the aftereffects of Hunga Tonga’s monstrous mesospheric eruption continue to influence our climate.
