The models are in, and the models are grim. Latest GFS runs reveal a record-smashing setup will engulf ≈90% of the North American continent beginning Friday.
This looks BIG.
Intense polar cold looks set to return to the Rockies and Northern Plains before the week is out. By next Tuesday, new record October lows should have been set all the way from the western coastline to the Great Lakes:
For many, it will feel as though the Arctic has descended south for the week as temperature departures sink as much as 20C below the seasonal average.
The freeze is expected to linger into the Halloween weekend.
In addition, mind-boggling amounts of snow are set to accompany the cold.
On Tues, Oct 27 and into Wed, Oct 28 regions as far south as central Texas are forecast substantial accumulations, with neighboring New Mexico bracing for something a wintry burial–in the month of October!
Western Canada will receive yet another dumping, as will the eastern provinces of Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland — but taking a closer look at those southern totals (shown below), the U.S. states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho and Washington are all set to join TX and NM in building record-smashing early-season snow:
Feet of global warming goodness could blanket the mountain states:
With the south, as discussed above, also copping a rare October blast:
It must be stressed that the models could-well be overdoing it.
However, the dates in question are nearing the reliable time-frame, certainly close enough for these forecasts to be taken seriously. Heavy accumulations such as these, before the month of October is even through, should serve as a wake-up call for those yet to prepare. They will also add to what is an above average Northern Hemisphere 2020-21 snowpack season:
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 therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
