Record-Breaking Freeze To Slam The United States
An early-season Arctic Outbreak is sending temperatures crashing to January-like levels across the US — a staggering 25-35 degrees Fahrenheit below the average.
Residents from Minneapolis to Chicago, St. Louis and Oklahoma City are among those in the firing line as a shot of polar air, colder than what is considered “normal” for mid-January, engulfs the majority of the CONUS.
Freezing lows and substantial snows have already felled many benchmarks this week (with hundreds toppled last month), but meteorologists, including those at AccuWeather, are warning that the coldest conditions are yet to come.
“Many places in the Plains and Midwest will experience high temperatures 10F-or-more below what a typical mid-January day would be,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Joe Lundberg said, who provides the below graphic:
And by Friday, the latest GFS run (shown below) has that pocket of “warm air” also being pushed out:
In Chicago, for example, daytime highs are forecast hold in the 20s on Friday, while a normal mid-Jan high is 31F.
Also –and as depicted above– locations farther south will not be spared from Old Man Winter’s early arrival, either. In Oklahoma City, following a wintry hit snow at the beginning of the week, temperatures will close out Friday in the upper 30s — well below the city’s lowest average high during the winter, which is in the upper 40s.
Ranking this November cold wave vs those of year’s gone by, 2022’s is on course to be a biggie, one that will likely topple hundreds of low temperature records through Sunday, at least, adding to the hundreds that were toppled in mid/late-October:
AccuWeather’s Lundberg attributes this early-season freeze to an area of high pressure over Alaska–which sounds about right… cold is natural, of course, whereas those summer heatwaves –now a distant memory– were anthropogenic and dangerous.
This week’s powerful Arctic Outbreak will shift east over the next few days, and will see Northeastern residents joining in the Jan-like shivers. Also by then, a potentially record-breaking lake-effect snow event should be in full swing over the Great Lakes:
Northern Hemisphere Snow Mass Tracking Above 1982-2012 Average (And Climbing)
The snow clipping North America this week will only further bolster the Northern Hemisphere’s ‘Total Snow Mass’ readings, which –as visualized below– are already advancing the trend of growth witnessed over the past 5-or-so years.
Looking at the Finnish Meteorological Institute’s (FMI) chart, we see that NH snow mass took a notable turn up as per the latest data point (Nov 11), building on what has already been an above-average opening to a snow season:
The Rutgers Global Snow Lab gives us the Daily Snow Extent (for Nov 13).
It shows that practically all of Russia and Canada, as well as sizable swathes of Mongolia, Kazakhstan, China and the Lower 48, are currently blanketed by early-season snowfall, which, again, is contrary to AGW Party narrative of forever fire and brimstone.
Greenland Snow/Ice Above 1981-2010 Norms
The Greenland ice sheet has been faring increasingly well in recent years — media tizzies of ‘mass ice loss’ and ‘imminent doom’ are wildly unfounded.
While it is true that the world’s largest island lost mass from around 1995 to 2012, that trend of loss has now reversed, and since 2016, a sharp uptick in the Surface Mass Balance (SMB) –a calculation to determine the ‘health’ of a glacier– has been detected.
More on that here:
And most recently, the 2022-23 season appears to be continuing that trend, routinely posting impressive daily totals across the ice sheet since the season officially commenced on September 1:
Moreover, and as shown below, the season’s Acc. SMB is tracking not only above above the 1981-2010 mean but also the deviations, too; Greenland is on course to log yet another above average season, perhaps even a record-breaking one:
If you want proof of mainstream media lies then you need look no further than their reporting of the Greenland ice sheet.
The above data outlines the reality, yet here is how the Western corporate media –whose job it is to instill fear and forward agendas, not to impart truth– has been misinforming the masses:
“Phenomenally high rates of melting have been discovered at the base of the Greenland Ice Sheet”, reported Cambridge Independent; “Melting Ice Sheet in Greenland Becomes the Largest Contributor to Global Sea Level Rise”, reads a Nature World News headline from Feb, 2022; and “Thinning Greenland Ice Sheet May Mean More Sea Level Rise” stated France 24 just last week.
The science, in all fields, has been hijacked by vested interests; that quote from Dr. Paul Reiter again rings true: “As far as the science being ‘settled,’ I think that is an obscenity. The fact is the science is being distorted by people who are not scientists.”
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).
Social Media channels are restricting Electroverse’s reach: Twitter are purging followers, while Facebook are labeling posts as “false” and have now locked me out of my account. And most recently, the CCDH stripped the website of its ability to advertise with Google.
