The GFS has been hinting at a potentially historic blast of Arctic cold engulfing the lower-48 beginning Mon, Sept 7 for a while now; and the model has just doubled-down on that forecast.
Latest GFS runs suggest next week could begin with a shiver and a shudder as temperature departures across the majority of the U.S. sink 8C to 18CBELOW the seasonal average.
This could be historic.
Just look at that frigid streak of pink (below) clipping Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, and Kentucky; and completely engulfing Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana:
And again, note how well this pattern matches with temp departures during the Maunder Minimum (the last full-blown Grand Solar Minimum)–and not only in the CONUS and Canada, but also in Alaska and the southern tip of Greenland, too:
Next week’s Arctic blast is set to shift a little south on Wednesday:
And will persist Thursday through Sunday, before temperatures closer to the seasonal average prevail for most on Monday.
Summer Snow ALREADY Clipping the Mountain States
Record cold has already been suffered in the west of late, with heavy summer snow settling across the mountain states.
The cold front brought freezing temps and summer snow to Wyoming.
The state’s Department of Transportation web cams along WYO 22 over Teton Pass show snow falling Monday afternoon:
Colorado’s highest elevations saw the first snow of the season on Saturday, and more has fallen since. In addition, CBS4 Denver reports that a few Coloradans have also reported snow high up on Trail Ridge Road as well.
And finally, the flakes began flying on the final day of August, with the mountains of western Montana seeing healthy accumulations for the time of year:
In addition to the snow, the National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather alert for freezing conditions on Sunday night into Monday.
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.
