Heavy Snow In South Korea
On Sunday alone, more than 100 traffic accidents were reported amid heavy snowfall in South Korea’s Gangwon province.
Impressive totals have been posted across Gwangwon as well as surrounding provinces, including the 55.9 cm (1.8 ft) in the Misiryeong mountain ridge, and the 52.3 cm (1.7 ft) at Hyangrobong hill.
Vehicles became stranded for some time on a highway near the coastal county of Goseong, with drivers struggling to steer their cars out of accumulated snow for a number of hours before police, fire, and the military came to their aid.
Roads in Sokcho and Yangyang were also blocked.
Gangwon Governor Kim Jin-Tae held a virtual emergency meeting on Sunday, instructing officials across the province’s cities and counties to begin “all-out works to remove snow from the roads”.
Looking ahead, colder-than-average temperatures are forecast for the remainder of the week.
Flurries are also hitting North Korea, particularly eastern regions.
While further east, sea-effect snow is extending into Japan, with the likes of Hokkaido and Honshu expecting accumulations registering in the multiple feet to build Sunday through Tuesday.
Russia Logs Coldest January Temperature Since 1982
Extreme, record-slaying cold is persisting across Siberia as well as the wider Asian continent.
Over the weekend, a remarkable -62.4C (-80.3F) was officially registered in Tongulakh. This is a new all-time low for the locale, and also marks Russia’s coldest January temperature since 1982.
The extreme freeze is set to linger, too.
In fact, Tongulakh rivalled that record-low this morning (Monday) with a reading of -62.3C (-80.1F); while the likes of Selagoncy –to pick another locale at random– plunged to -61C (-77.8F) in the early hours, its lowest temp since the early-1990s.
Low temperature benchmarks have been falling across Transcontinental Russia in recent days/weeks, and it stands, if this part of the world had similar station coverage to, say, Central Europe then the number of fallen records would run into the thousands.
And on that topic…
Unofficial -75C (-103F)
According to residents of the eastern Siberian village of Essey, the mercury recently plunged to -75C (-103F)
This would be a new worldwide low for a location outside of Antarctica; however, there is no Central Siberian Department for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (UGMS) station in Essey, meaning the reading can’t be officially verified.
“We cannot confirm or deny,” said Dmitry Ulyanov, lead forecaster at UGMS.
The closest UGMS weather stations to Essey is located a hundred miles away. It registered a mere -53C (-63.4F) at the time of the big freeze.
“A photograph from Naberezhnaya Street [showed] -72C, and even three degrees lower — it is -75C,” said Essey resident Andrey Miroshko, who is confident in the reliability of his village’s weather station. “Today it reads 64C,” he added.
Russian Climb on Twitter picked up on the story:
Yakut village, Oymyakon –aka the ‘Pole of Cold’– maintains the official all-time low (-71C/-95.8F) in books dating back to 1926.
To The South
Siberia’s polar blast has descend south, too — even touching the Indian Ocean.
Across the likes of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as Kazakhstan and Mongolia, longstanding records are falling.
Nokkundi in Pakistan, for example, logged a low of -10C (14F) over the weekend, which matches the locale’s all-time lowest temperature ever recorded, with monthly lows also neared/bested in Pangjur (Pakistan) and Zabol (Iran).
Historic lows have also been set in Turkmenabat, second largest city of Turkmenistan. Its Sunday reading of -25.4C (-13.7F) comfortably bested the previous all-time low of -23.8C (-10.8F) set 123 years ago, on Jan 22, 1900 (The Centennial Minimum).
While in India, snow has also been building, triggering an avalanche near Baltal, along the Srinagar-Kargil-Leh highway:
Arctic Air Hits Europe, Delivers Feet Of Snow
Fierce, wintry conditions are ravaging swathes of Europe just days after the MSM labeled the season a ‘no-show’.
Snow is falling in the UK, with the Met Office issuing weather warnings for snow and ice as temperatures plummet below -15C (5F) across parts of Scotland.
Rare flurries hit the western Isle of Barra this morning:
Heavy snow is also pounding mainland Europe, with feet clipping the continent’s higher elevations: Mother Nature is giving the cultist, anti-human scumbags flying into Davos a friendly wintry welcome (let’s pray their private jets don’t skid off the runway).
According to reports, the roads around Davos have 5,000 troops patrolling them, with anyone attempting to get anywhere near the ‘non-governmental lobbying event’ checked and fingerprinted (I hope the elites feel the love that Joe Public has for them).
Davos attendees believe that wealth gives them the right to control the direction of humanity. And while technically –and depressingly– true (via their acquisitions of big business, the legacy media and global governments), there remains one obstacle in the elites’ way: some 8-billion innocent souls that feel and know deep down that ‘something’ is very wrong.
We are some 8-billion fast-reducing souls (admittedly–with their measures beginning to ‘work’) but still, we are an 8-billion strong army vs only a handful of pampered elites, and they should know that rope is cheap to come by, with gallows easy to assemble.
The usual hypocrisy is on show as King Klaus and his merry-band-of-frauds thunder their way in to a sleepy Swiss town, visually announcing “do as we say, not as we do” as they hit the runways and helipads — hypocrisy that legacy media lapdogs and sycophantic alarmists-alike find suspiciously easy to ignore.
Hilariously, what’s arriving in tow with the global cabal is heavy, agenda-wrecking snow:
And there’s much more where that came from:
All this snow is only going to increase Northern Hemisphere mass over the coming days and weeks, total mass which is already, as of Jan 13 (the latest datapoint), punching above not only the 1982-2012 average but the standard deviation, too:
Historic coverage across Asia is bolstering this season’s NH snowpack, as are the extensive, persistent and record-smashing accumulations registered in the Western United States.
California’s snowpack, for example, has blown past 337 inches which surpasses the state’s previous all-time high for the time of year. In some spots, totals are even covering second story windows, turning homes into igloos.
“We’re going to be shoveling for months,” so said Clark Tapia, owner of Old Faithful Property Management who has a group of 30 men working round the clock, and, as we see across Europe and Asia, there is much more on the cards:
And finally, Australia is cooling, according to the satellites — at a rate of -0.132C per decade since 2013:
This chimes with that we’re seeing globally, at least via the satellite data –not necessarily the UHI-skewing, agenda-driving mainstream obfuscations (more on those below)– with temperatures for the lower global atmosphere currently sitting at just 0.05C above the multidecadal baseline, which is down significantly from the 2016 peak.
As discussed by Dr Roy Spencer, who recently conducted a thorough analysis (linked here): “I’m convinced that there is spurious warming in the temperature data [due to the urban heat island (UHI) effect]” — i.e. what the establishment has labeled a ‘global warming trend’ is in fact the result of selective temperature station-siting/data-collation and the expansion of urban areas.
There is no global warming, let alone any ‘Climate Emergency’.
Earth is cooling.
AGW is a prosperity-limiting, poverty-inducing scam.
Wake up, already.
