NORTH AMERICA: A powerful Arctic blast has delivered, and is continuing to deliver, record April cold and snow as far south as Oklahoma, with the unprecedented wintry conditions forecast to run into May.
A strong cold front, riding unusually-far south on the back of a weak and wavy meridional jet stream, has returned large areas of the U.S. and Canada to winter, with hundreds (likely thousands) of cold and snow records falling across many states: a reality that has left global warming proponents scratching their heads, tapping their charts, and bleating dogmatic nonsense such as “it was the warm what did it!”
Snow has settled as far south as Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the city’s previous latest measurable snow (of at least 0.1 inches) being that of April 12, 1957. Needless to say, this mid-week accumulation has smashed that record.
Unprecedented late-season snowfall has buried hundreds of towns and cities across America.
Below I’ve highlighted just three.
In Evansville, they are reporting the latest pow-pow this far into spring: totals there have comfortably broken the previous record set on April 18 from both 1983 and 1953 (solar minimum of cycle 18 and 21, respectively):
“Rare and impressive” record setting snow was reported in Louisville:
While “very rare” and “bizarre” Indianapolis flurries have annihilated the old April record there.
As of Wednesday morning, Indianapolis recorded 2 inches of snow, breaking the record for most single-day snow this late in April, according to NWS Indianapolis. In addition, this makes it the only time this late in the year that the city has received more than a trace of snowfall.
It’s “very, very rare,” said Michael Koch, NWS Indianapolis Senior Meteorologist. He noted that it’s also not common to see heavy snow falling before sunset, as it did Tuesday evening. “I found it really bizarre myself,” Koch said, who clearly hasn’t drawn the link between low solar activity, wavy jet streams and Arctic outbreaks.
Indianapolis also set a new record low temperature for April 21 — the city hit 26F (-3.3C) on Wednesday, a reading that beat-out the previous record low of 28F (-2.8) set back in 1907 (during the Centennial Minimum).
Freezing temperatures are following behind the snow for many others; cold that poses a serious threat to gardens and crops alike, reports forbes.com. Freeze warnings are currently covering a huge swath of the central United States, stretching from northwestern Texas to eastern Michigan, alerting residents to the near-freezing or sub-freezing temperatures capable of inflicting serious harm to tender, cold-sensitive plants.
The freeze has already forced many northern Texans to cover-up plants or even bring them inside for the night, reports nbcdfw.com. Temperatures early Wednesday morning were in the 30s, which was record-breaking. DFW Airport busted its daily low set more than 100 years ago, with Wednesday’s low of 37F (2.8C) superseding the old benchmark by a full 2 degrees F.
The latest GFS run is calling for more of the same on Thursday:
Before a second powerful Arctic air mass drops down from central/western Canada on Friday, which is expected to run through the weekend:
Unsettled conditions will see many regions flip-flop between winter and spring during the early part of next week, before another polar front tears through the CONUS as we enter May:
Furthermore, heavy, record-breaking snow will continue to accompany the cold:
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.
