The summit district of Haleakalā National Park, Maui was closed on Feb. 3 and 4 due to rare wintry conditions and inches of snow, reports mauinow.com.
Rangers urged the public to not try to travel to the park, and closed both the road and entrance gate — folks were not permitted to see snow or ice.
While snow occurs almost every year on the higher elevations of Hawai’i, flakes on the state’s smaller island of Maui are a much rarer sight, occurring on average just once every 5 years, according to the National Weather Service.
Astonishingly, 2021 is now the fourth year in a row that Maui has seen a wintry dusting, with impressive coverings also being documented in 2020, 2019, and 2018.
In fact, the island’s 2019 dusting was confirmed as the Hawaiian archipelago’s lowest elevation snowfall ever recorded, at 6,200 feet.
The trend is clear.
Hawaii is cooling…
Webcams at the @keckobservatory on #MaunaKea on Hawaii’s Big Island captured a snowplow back to work this morning clearing fresh snow that fell overnight. Maui’s Haleakala also picked up several inches of snow yesterday. #HIwx pic.twitter.com/uFJKwbFSkb— the Weatherboy (@theWeatherboy) February 4, 2021
…along with the planet:
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.
