Europe’s punishing late-summer cold front has been busy taking names across the western half of the continent.
The UK has just suffered-through one of it coldest August Bank Holiday weekends ever recorded, the Alps and Pyrenees have recently received heavy summer snow, and now the French are reporting all-time record August lows:
As reported by meteo.bzh, a monthly cold record has just been broken at the Brest-Guipavas airport –located in NW France– where a minimum temperature of 5.8C (42.4F) was registered.
A plunging Arctic air mass was responsible — a phenomenon on the increase due to the historically low solar activity we’re receiving (see meridional jet stream flow). A lack of wind and the absence of cloud cover at night also contributed to the plummeting temps, according to meteo.bzh.
Monday’s 5.8C comfortably surpassed the previous all-time record –the 6.4C (43.5F) set on August 30, 2018– to become the region’s coldest-ever August temperature in data going back some 80 years.
The frigid conditions look set to persist through the rest of the week, and then, looking further ahead, after an unsettled 6-or-so days the anomalous Arctic cold is expected to return on Sept 9, with additional all-time cold records forecast to topple on Sept 10:
Even NASA appears to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
