Cold records shattered across northeastern US

Temperatures plunged to record-breaking lows across the northeastern United States on Valentine’s Day.

From New York City to Boston to Hartford to Providence to Montpelier, Vermont, the mercury dropped to levels never before seen in recorded history.

All this during a period of so-called global warming.

  1. Any bets that these cold temperatures will get smoothed out of the NOAA record, and this year 2016 will be even warmer than last year by much more than a fraction of a degree.
    Now for some facts:
    This solar cycle is running well below that for Dalton and has been consistently throughout the cycle with very high fragment counts.
    Even NASA records that high out cycles are very short, recently they were averaging just over nine years, and low output cycles last much longer than 11 years, and move towards 14 years.
    Using the Graphic above based on an 11 year average, it is possible the earliest start to the rise to SC25 Max will start in 70 months from now, and reach the first Max peak 15 months after that. That is an awful amount of bad weather to flow under the bridge for both hemispheres, until the full sized spot count reaches 20 again. Its possible that the rise might be delayed by another 30 months if the cycle’s decline is much more flatter than the Dalton decline.
    A Gullible Warming 2C rising temperature, changes into 1.5C drop in temperature over a twenty year period, as per the Homeric Minimum which the IPCC model doesn’t account for, the European climate has already changed within 8 years to a more wet and windy model, perhaps a certain hockey stick crafter didn’t see the periodic growth rings, where no growth occurred at all, all during the multiple periods called solar minimums.
