N. China Endures Harshest ‘Cold Wave’ Since 1987

Extreme cold conditions are gripping a large portion of China this week, while warmth prevails in the far South.

A harsh ‘cold wave’ has engulfed the Xinjiang region where a low of -48.6C (-55.5F) was observed on Monday.

This is the coldest reading since 1987, and one not far off the lowest November temperature ever recorded in China — the -50.7C (-59.3F) set at Keketuohai, Xinjiang on Nov 26, 1987 (solar minimum of cycle 21).

Nearby Kanas Airport recently reported a low 43C (-45.4F) — exceptionally frigid for the time of year.

Highs in the 30s (C) have been noted in the far South, giving a nationwide ‘spread’ of 85C.

Accompanying the northern freeze has been substantial dumpings of snow.

Feet have accumulated across Xinjiang Uygur as well as China’s Inner Mongolia Region in recent days.

Snow has fallen heavily and consistently across Xinjiang, including Altay Prefecture, Yili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture and Tacheng Prefecture. The accumulations soon led to roadblocks and traffic jams, prompting local departments to initiate emergency responses. In Tacheng alone, more than 80 snow removal vehicles were put into operation.

By Sunday morning, a massive snowstorm had delivered feet upon feet to eastern Yili, Tacheng and Shihezi City, with the mercury noted to have plunged by as much as 30C in Tacheng, Altay and Changji Hui in a matter of hours.

As temperatures plummeted, waterfalls began to freeze, particularly those located around Acacia Lake at the Ali River National Forest Park in Inner Mongolia. The 2.4m-high (8ft) and 28m-wide (92ft) ice fall delivered some majestic scenery:

While continuing north, into Eastern Russia, the Northern Hemisphere’s first -50C of the season has been registered.

The “winner” is Oymyakon, a rural locality within the Sakha Republic, with its weekend low of -50.2C (-58.4F).

Since then, Nera has also joined the -50C club, while Oymyakon itself sank further on Nov 27, to -50.9C (-59.6F).

Also worth noting, Mongolia has logged a very chilly -39.4C (-38.9F), with Kazakhstan suffering -37.1C (-34.8F).

[Thanks to ‘Martin’ in the comments section for bringing this to my attention.]

Canada’s Coldest November Reading Since 1989

The majority of Canada has been holding very cold and snowy in recent weeks, with many records being felled.

Most recently, a low of -45C (-49F) was observed in Eureka, Nunavut — the first -45C of the season, and the station’s coldest November temperature since 1989, which isn’t too far off the monthly record of 48.2C.

Also, with a reading of -63C, the station has gone and set a new monthly windchill record.

Monthly Lows Challenged Across Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa –so the majority of the continent– has been suffering exceptionally cold nights of late.

National monthly lows have fallen in multiple countries, while a myriad-more benchmarks have been challenged.

Some of the standouts include Benin with its 12.3C (54.1F); Togo with 15.4C (59.7F); Chad’s 15C (59F); Burkina Faso’s 14.1C (57.4F); Mali’s 13.3C (55.9F); Cote Ivoire’s 12.8C (55F); Nigeria’s 9C (48.2F); and Niger with its remarkable 6.9C (44.4F).

Global Cooling

Contrary to The Narrative, the global average temperature for November 2022 has closely tracked the multidecadal average (+0.08C as of Nov 26), continuing the overall cooling trend witnessed since 2016.

The warmth has all-but disappeared from the Southern Hemisphere (see JRA 55-year anomaly map below).

This cooling can be tied to 1) Hunga Tonga’s record ‘mesospheric’ eruption of Jan 15, and 2) the cumulative effect of years of low solar activity which now appears to be impacting the oceans after a decade-or-so lag.

Much of South America and Africa have endured colder-than-average Novembers this year, while truly anomalous chills have prevailed across Antarctica and Australia–with the latter on for its coldest month of November since at least 1999 with records for lows and snows continuing to fall just days out from summer.

Our planet is cooling.

I don’t care who that statement pisses off — it’s the truth.

The Northern Hemisphere is about to feel the brunt of this cold hard fact as a rare third La Niña conspires with record-breaking blocking over Greenland to –potentially- deliver some truly ‘Little Ice Age’ conditions to Europe and Eastern Canada/the U.S. over the coming weeks (see links below).

The future –both near-term and long– looks cold.

Reject the mainstream narrative.

Stay free.


The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

  1. You may want to update to get degrees C and F here: “Highs in the 30s (C) have been noted in the far South, giving a nationwide ‘spread’ of 85C.”

    Thank you for your contributions to the truth. I can’t tell you how important it is for peopled like you that continue to reject the mainstream narrative of lies. I’ve been studying sun cycles since the 90’s. It seems so obvious to me but when I try to explain the connection between the sun’s intensity and global warmth to friends and family it’s as if I was speaking Chinese.

    Thank you for helping me maintain my sanity.

    Another volcano pops off, Mauna Loa in Hawaii. At this rate we’ll get our year without summer.

      Hawaii only has the runny type volcanoes that do not cause explosive eruptions.

    Just want to update you from the South-East corner of British Columbia, Canada. It has been unusually very cold here for about a month. Night low were approaching -17C, -14C during the day. The next few weeks look very cold too with night temperatures anywhere from -11C to -16C, daytime highs of -6C to -11C.

    Here is the shocking part – it usually stays just below 0C day and night. Yes we can get a week or two in January with -16C -20C at night, and then it goes back to normal, which is just below 0C.

    I don’t really care about northern Canada, if it’s -30C or -50C, just stay home and wrap yourself around your woodstove. But here in the very south, where they grow grapes, apricots and peaches – it’s truly shocking.

    Snowing here now NW US at sea level, At the beach.

    Blizzard in the mountains:

    Snow forecast West Coast down to Mexico and then diagonally across the US:

    The snow is being fed direct from Kamchatka and Alaska volcanos:

    Direct Earth facing coronal hole and a CME solar windstorm when Hawaii went off:

    Fourth year in a row here they will fight to keep roads open and power on from snow and yet the news feeds never ever say “What happened to global warming? Wow were WE wrong! We’re sorry.” I guess global warming is only in Summer and El Nino and then it’s nag nag nag. What a joke. A really really BAD joke. I’m ’bout sick of the lies. My blood pressure is up from the Mag spikes:

    Let it SNOWWW, let it SNOWWWW, let it SNOWWWWW!*!*!*!***!!

    something is wrong with the figures -please check

    Cap. I have lost your email address. Want to comment on CO2 measurements at Mauna Loa. Is this really a representative place for the global average they document. Are there no other measurements elsewhere? Do they agree. And what is the CO2 effect of the latest volcanic activity.
