While northern Russia’s anomalous warmth is dominating the MSM headlines, the intense cold-blasts and unusually fierce snow-dumps currently ravaging vast portions of the planet are of far greater concern.
Northern Russia is long overdue for some heat — the region is coming off the back of an exceptionally cold and prolonged winter where record-breaking lows (often in the -50C to -60C range) persisted from mid-December all the way through April.
As a result, researchers on the ground noted “an increase in periodic glaciation in the region.”
Russia’s pocket of warmth may have the obfuscating mainstream media in another EOTW tizzy, but the ‘bigger picture,’ as always, paints a different story: low solar activity is continuing to weaken the jet streams, and it is this setup, and this setup alone, that is responsible or the swings between extremes we’re currently seeing (i.e. the pushing of warm tropical air unusually-far north and the dragging of cold polar air unusually-far south).
[More on the bigger picture below]
Over the weekend, twenty-one runners tackling a mountain ultramarathon in northwest China perished after freezing conditions hit the high-altitude race.
Rescuers were only able to save 151 out of a total of 172 participants.
According to the official Xinhua News Agency, the twenty-one died from “the sudden drop in temperature.”
The extreme freeze caught everyone off guard.
“I ran 2 kilometres before the starting gun fired to warm up,” said one competitor; “but the trouble was, after running these 2 kilometres, my body still had not heated up.”
Kashmir, India Receives Rare May Snowfall
On Sunday, central Kashmir received what thekashmirwalla.com called “rare summer snowfall” and “extreme cold weather conditions.“
Some of the heaviest accumulations were received in central Kashmir’s Sonamarg Resort.
This was the scene as the snowfall began:
Nearby Minimarg also copped impressive flakes.
While the higher elevations received even larger totals.
Below was the scene along the infamous ‘Mughal Road‘ which climbs to an elevation of 3000+m (9,840+ft) [sound required!].
It also snowed across the peaks in and around ZojiLa yesterday, May 24, according to DD News Ladakh:
Snowfall in Kashmir is usually received during the core winter months, between December to February, continues the thekashmirwalla.com article — “snowfall in the last half of May is incredibly rare in the region.”
Kaghan, Pakistan Hit by Heavy Snow
Crossing India’s northern border, and into Pakistan, flurries of heavy snowfall have also been reported.
According to dawn.com, the scenic Kaghan Valley was transformed into a winter wonderland on Sunday as extreme cold set it.
It started snowing at noon and continued throughout the entire day.
The below footage was shot in Battakundi, Kaghan on May 23 [again, volume up!]:
Many mountain passes remain blanketed in winter snows.
“The Mansehra-Naran-Jalkhad Road has been cleared of snow up to Battakundi,” said Matiuallah; however, the remaining stretch up to Babusar Top is still being worked on, even as we approach the month of June.
To finish, that pocket of anomalous warmth currently being enjoyed by northern Russians is already showing signs of a breakdown. In fact, before the end of May things look set to turn decidedly chilly.
Additionally, below is a representation of that ‘bigger picture’ the MSM routinely obfuscates away from:
As we can see, alongside that pocket of heat in northern Russia an equally-large and equally-anomalous blob of cold has been engulfing eastern Russia, ALL of Mongolia, vast areas of China (responsible for the tragic marathon deaths), as well as ALL of India and Pakistan (responsible for the late-season snows highlighted above).
Oh, and if the Asian continent isn’t a big-enough representation for you, then here’s the entire 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.
