Cold Paraguay; Record Lows Logged At Bismark And Parkersburg; Delhi Shivers; + “One-In-50-Year” Frost Decimates NZ Blueberry Crop

Cold Paraguay

As was the case across much of South America, September 2022 was an anomalously cool month.

Paraguay was very cool, in fact, with temperature anomalies here ranging from -1C to a full -2C below the multidecadal norm.

Record Lows Logged At Bismark And Parkersburg

Despite the mainstream’s “Terrifying Terra Firma Broiling” rhetoric, the U.S. is still managing to bust cold records.

A record low temperature of 17F (-8.3C) was recently noted at Bismarck Airport, ND — tying the same reading for the date set back in 1976 (solar minimum of weak cycle 20).

A fresh record was also set at Parkersburg, WV, on Oct 11 — the second straight day that the city set or tied a new record low. After matching the previous benchmark of 32F (0C) on Oct 10, the following morning’s low of 33F (0.56C) broke the old record of 34F (1.1C) set back in 1945 (solar minimum of cycle 17).

A far frostier Arctic front is now threatening to grip the eastern half of the U.S. over the weekend and into next week. As discussed yesterday, this descending polar cold will likely drive the mercury to record-low levels, and also deliver early-season snow to many states:

Delhi Shivers

Starting back in late-2019, an increasing number of cold weather records have been falling across India.

In Delhi alone, the city suffered its coldest December day in more than a century back in 2019; it registered its chilliest months of October and November in 54 and 71 years, respectively, in 2020; Delhi’s coldest May day in 70 years was logged in 2021, with the following month bringing its lowest June temperature ever; and this year, 2022, Delhi suffered a harsh, persistent winter during which its coldest January and February days in a decade were noted, with nearby locales receiving their first snow since 1958: scenarios that led to the deaths of a record number of homeless people in Delhi — 200 ‘official’ deaths in January alone.

And now, in October, fresh records are falling.

The maximum temperature in Delhi dropped to 23.4C (74.1F) this week, which is more than 10C below the seasonal norm of 33.8C (92.8F). Also, the temperature difference between Friday’s minimum (20.8C/69.4F) and Saturday’s maximum (23.4C/74.1F) was also –at just 2.6C– the smallest temperature range registered in Delhi since 1969.

Over the past weekend, the city also received its second-highest 24-hour rainfall total since 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23).

Delhi is cooling.

As is India as a whole.

Heavy, early-season snow has already clipped the nation’s northern reaches this month.

States such as Uttarakhand have seen key roads blocked. While in Darma Valley, the last outpost near the Chinese border, 4+ feet of snow has settled, with security personnel having to patrol the area “under extreme circumstances.”

“One-In-50-Year Frost” Decimates NZ Blueberry Crop

Despite WEF-puppet Jacinda Arden’s desperate attempts to push through a ‘cow burp tax‘ to stave off global warming, the entirety of New Zealand –that’s both islands– has been suffering ‘a year without a spring’ in 2022.

Following a warm winter, spring is now stalling, completely failing to sprung.

Due to a weak and wavy ‘meridional’ jet stream flow –itself caused by low solar activity/Earth’s waning magnetic field– a string of polar air masses have escaped the Antarctic ice sheet and have been tail-whipped north over NZ, and also Australia.

Record lows and historic snows have gripped the region in recent weeks, prompting snowfall warnings and calls for farmers to protect young livestock–ironically.

The latest out-of-season freeze has impacted crops, too, including blueberry orchards.

After sleepless, frosty nights –that saw thermometers plunge to a record-busting -5C (23F)– a Waikato family watched their blueberry crops dying in front of their eyes.

As reported by, Monavale Blueberries, New Zealand’s largest certified organic blueberry orchard, should be full of white flowering bushes and the deafening hum of bees at this time of year. However, a “one-in-50-year” frost has left the shrubs brown, the bees vanished and an estimated 300 tonnes of potential produce destroyed — some 90% of the crop.

“We have never seen anything like this,” said third-generation orchard manger Oliver de Groot.

MetService data confirms this, revealing that -2.9C (26.8F) was the previous coldest October reading on record (since 1972).

“We are all very upset by it,” continued de Groot. “We did what we could and there is nothing else we could have done to prevent it … We grow over 40 varieties of blueberries. The main reason, if an event like this happens we have some that are protected.”

This freeze was so hard that barely anything made it.

Even two helicopters flying from midnight to sunrise couldn’t circulate the air fast enough to keep it above 0C.

“If the frost had been light they may have been able to save more berries,” said de Groot. “However, it got down to -5C (23F) at ground level,” which, for the young, blossoming berries proved devastating.

This cold-induced misery isn’t just confined to the Waikato District.

Far from it.

As Blueberry New Zealand manager Rob Silberbauer reveals, “The general consensus from growers is that they’ve lost between 90 – 100 percent of their rabbiteye crop, and around 40 – 60 percent of their high bush crop.”

Silberbauer said the organisation is trying to help provide growers with technical and emotional support.

“Growers have been struggling with labor, inflation, and COVID restrictions the last two years. They were excited about the prospect that perhaps those difficulties were behind them only for these frosts to decimate their yields and resulting profits for this coming season.”

These frosts have been the final straw for many growers, who are now considering giving-up blueberry growing altogether.

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).
