The MSM was keen to promote this year’s Olympic Games as potentially being the “hottest ever!”; but in reality, northern Japan is suffering all-time, never-before seen, record-breaking COLD — and it is going largely unreported.
In Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, the city of Wakkanai registered a daily high of just 51F (10.5C) this week — this was the city’s lowest August reading in 128 years of books, so since 1893 (the Centennial/Gleissberg Minimum).
The mercury plunged even lower overnight, as you’d expect — an astonishing 36.7F (2.61C) was logged early Thursday morning, Aug 11, according to local news station TV Asahi.
Shocked residents spoke of being able see their breath, in the height of summer.
Extreme weather and wildly-fluctuating temperatures have been documented across Japan in recent weeks.
At the close of July, Wakkanai actually came close to busting a high temperature record, but fell just short.
Such swings between extremes are fully predicted during times of low solar activity –such as the historically low output we’re experiencing now– as the lower incoming energy weakens the jet streams, reverting them to a wavy (meridional) flow.
These swings are only forecast to intensify as the Grand Solar Minimum fully takes hold (due SC26–or the early-2030s).

Elsewhere, hundreds of thousands of Japanese residents have been instructed to evacuate their homes due to flood warnings and landslide risks from torrential rains on Kyushu island.
Authorities issued the highest level of evacuation orders in some central parts of the island on Thursday, reported Reuters.
People were warned to take immediate action to protect their lives.

Noctilucent Clouds Persist into August
Noctilucent clouds (NLCs), or night shining clouds, are spilling out of the Arctic Circle and descending farther south than ever before.
Generally speaking, August is not a good month for NLCs — the silvery clouds, made of frosted meteor smoke, begin to melt away as the mesosphere warms up in late summer.
This August, however, the clouds are still being spotted.
Nadja Maletzki photographed them on Thursday, Aug 12 over Zürich, Switzerland:
“It was a very nice display,” says Maletzki.
The significance of this picture is not that NLCs exist in August. They often do. Rather, it is the latitude of the display: +47 N, explains Dr. Tony Phillips over at spaceweather.com.
The clouds are usually retreating toward the Arctic Circle by mid-August, not showing up in the middle of Europe.
All summer long, NLCs have been descending farther south than they are “supposed to.”
At one point in June, they were sighted near the Mediterranean coast of Spain.
Why is this Significant?
For NLCs to form, extremely cold temperatures –as low as -150F– are required.
These night shining clouds are always more prevalent during solar minimum conditions when there is less solar energy heating the extreme upper atmosphere (mesosphere). And with the Sun currently struggling to drag itself out of its deepest minimum of the past 100+ years (of SC24), this goes some way to explaining Maletzki’s rare mid-August and low-latitude sightings.
But there is also a long-term upward trend, too:
Before 2019, no sightings of Noctilucent Clouds at the mid-latitudes existed.
Then, as a result of the growing, record-breaking chill in the mesosphere (caused by low solar output), NLCs are being spotted farther south than ever before: in mid-June 2019, they were observed at Joshua Tree, CA (34 deg. N) and Albuquerque, New Mexico (35 deg. N)–new all-time records:
But forget about August, continues Dr. Phillips.
Will this be the year that NLCs are seen in September…?
Stay tuned for updates.
The Universe continues to deliver signs, pointers that only those with an open mind, unpolluted by the political agenda of the day have any hope of deciphering. People need to block out the fabricated hysteria that surrounds modern life, and instead crane their necks back, and look up: NLCs are visible about 1-2 hours after sunset or before sunrise — happy viewing…
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.
