“Italy’s Coldest September in 50 Years,” reads the headline of a wantedinmilan.com article dated Sept, 28.
Over the weekend, Italy suffered a sudden and dramatic drop in temperature. The mercury plunged by between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius across the country, resulting in Italy’s coldest September temps since the early 1970s (since the ‘weak’ solar cycle 20).
The bone-chilling cold, originating from the Arctic, also delivered heavy early-season snow to the most unusual of places: September snow fell on the hills in the greater Rome area as well as in the Lazio region. According to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, snow rarely ever falls this early in Lazio.
Rare September flurries were also recorded at Monte Livata (near Subiaco), Cervara di Roma, Ciociaria, Campocatino and Forca d’Acero, as well as in the area of S. Donato Valcomino, where Lazio meets the Abruzzo region.
Even the big cities, with all that data-skewing Urban Heat, were still experiencing a “particularly intense” bout of cold. Milan and Turin registered record-busting lows of 5C (41F) and 4C (39F), respectively, on the night of Sunday, September 27. For reference, Milan’s average low for the time of year is 16C (61F), with Turin’s standing at a balmy 17C (63F).
The weekend chill was brutal and wide-reaching, and looking forward, Italy is forecast to remain anomalously-cold for the remainder of the week (at least).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and so the climate overall.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
