An Arctic air mass has engulfed practically ALL of transcontinental Russia since the beginning of December, 2020 resulting to many regions suffering their longest stretches of subzero cold on record.
Siberia in particular is currently in the midst of an abnormally long and harsh period of subzero cold, even by Russia’s standards.
As reported by the Associated Press on Jan. 14, the temperature in the Yakutia region of eastern Russia dropped below -40F (-40C) during the first week of December and hasn’t climbed above that since.
Over recent days, the mercury has sunk even further, to a staggering -58F (-50C), and beyond: “The main rule is not to stand in one place and to keep going and going,” was the advice given by Yakutsk resident Dmitry Kuznetsov.
Outside of a brief “warmup” to -24F (-31C) during the first few of days of January, the city of Yakutsk hasn’t registered a high temperature above 30F (minus 34C) since Dec. 8, 2020, reports accuweather.com — a new record.
Even colder air has settled into Delyankir, a small district located about 500 miles (800 km) to the northeast of Yakutsk. On Monday morning, Jan. 18, a low of -73F (-58.1C) was observed.
The breadth of the cold has been quite unprecedented, with record lows sweeping the entire 17.1 million km² Russian landmass, plus much of Europe, plus Greenland, plus a large portion of North America (particularly Canada).
And looking ahead, a further intensification of the cold is in the forecast.
The latest GFS run (shown below) reveals how far below normal these temperatures actually are — the “pinks” indicate 20C colder than average:
Temperatures of -50 and below are forecast to continue across Siberia until the end of January, at least, while high above the Arctic something extraordinary could be brewing — there is the potential for not one, but two more splits to the Polar Vortex, notes @judah47 on Twitter:
If nothing else another entertaining #PolarVortex animation showing not one but two more splits, first with major daughter vortex in Asia & a minor one in US then a second split with major vortex over Canada & the minor one over Asia.

As if things aren’t interesting enough already, by early February there is the potential for brutal Arctic conditions to engulf the entire Northern Hemisphere simultaneously.
That should wake a few sheep to the AGW ruse.
Stay tuned for updates.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
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.
