Before “dangerous” blizzards smack the Prairies this weekend, Atlantic Canada has been treated to some howling, hurricane force winds and a “surprise” amount of early-season snow.
Conditions quickly deteriorated in Nova Scotia on Tuesday, with 10+cm of snow piling up in Halifax over the course of just a few hours. The low system then shunted into central Newfoundland by Tuesday night, catching many off guard as the snow totals “well overachieved,” reports ca.news.yahoo.com.
“The higher snowfall totals in Nova Scotia has a lot to do with the exact track of the low pressure system,” explained Weather Network meteorologist Jessie Uppal. “In this case, the center of the low was positioned just south enough to bring steady snowfall to the region and remain as snow. Had the positioning of the track shifted a bit further north, we would have seen a lot more rain mixing in.”
The forecast predicted a maximum of 20 cm of snow for areas of Newfoundland, but by Wednesday morning, more than 30 cm had already accumulated in the Gander area.
The heavy snow coupled with powerful northwest winds made for treacherous travel conditions through the early morning hours, it was also enough to shut several schools and businesses.
Many were blaming “2020” for delivering yet another unwanted surprise:
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.
