Vast regions of the Czech Republic (Czechia), including Labská bouda in the Krkonoše Mountains, remain buried under a “large layer of snow even in mid-May,” reports krkonossky.denik.cz.
There is so much snow, in fact, that not even a cutter has managed to bite through the pack.
The vehicle’s driver, Jaroslav Palivoda, who has been plowing this particularly road for almost 40 years, said he has experienced this level of accumulation on only three previous occasions, and never so late in the season.
Aleš Hnízdo, operations director of Labská bouda in the Giant Mountains, added: “There is really an extreme amount of snow” this year.
Responsible for the rare Czech snowfall is a descending Arctic air mass, one swept unusually-far south by a weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow–a setup known to increase during times of low solar activity.
And while northern Russia may be enjoying anomalous heat of late as it resides “under” the jet stream –a dramatic swing from the record freeze it had been suffering since mid-December– the majority of Europe remains “above” the jet, where it has been for months, which sees it open to frigid polar air streaming down from the north.
Europe will switch too, eventually; it will soon reside “under” the jet stream and be open to hot African plumes. But a note to all you alarmists, these inevitable heatwaves will NOT be proof of anthropogenic global warming. You do not need to arrange marches and yell at every petroleum-powered vehicle that passes by. No, these bursts of warmth will actually add weight to the Grand Solar Minimum theory, and, furthermore, they should be enjoyed.
Wavy jet streams are prevalent under times of low solar activity, and the Sun has just experienced its weakest Solar Cycle (24) of the past 100+ years. Regardless of what side of the jet stream you’re on, and immaterial of whether you’re enjoying anomalous heat or suffering unusual cold, a weakening of the jet streams is the takeaway here.
Other forcings, such as increased cloud nucleation and stalling ocean currents, lead to overall “global cooling,” but this observed increase in the buckling of the jets is a tell-tale sign of reduced solar output.
Europe can’t seem to catch a break.
Below are the forecast temperature anomalies for today, May 19 (courtesy of the GFS).
Also note that pocket of heat in northwest Russia, and the stark divide running between the two air masses.
Looking a little further ahead, northwest Russia will soon succumb to the cold as yet another powerful Arctic front engulfs the majority of the European continent:
This setup is forecast to persist for the remainder of May, and could actually intensify:
Rare late-May frosts look set to hit key growing regions, such as France and the Ukraine.
While unprecedented snowfall will continue to bury the continent’s higher elevations, even the northern UK.
These are the times we are living: ever-cooling temperatures and increasingly volatile “swings between extremes.”
Prepare for food shortages, inflation, and social unrest over the coming years.
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.
