Chile getting pounded with snow

It is the equivalent of late October below the equator and Valle Nevado, Chile is already getting pounded with snow.



Here’s a photo from their Facebook Page showing the extent of the new fallen snow.

    • so what is up with the sun then? right now is full of spots but activity remains low according to spaceweather.com
      If the sun will go spotless or quiet extreme winter will hit us? just last last winter in Europe?

  1. If the sun really becomes quadrapolar in May, there would be almost no sunspots at all. Sunspots do not appear near the poles, with 4 poles… sunspots would be a very rare event……. or will this make the Sun go “CRAZY”… we who live, we will see!

    • The magnetic field of the Sun is decreasing systematically since 1995, as predicted in the Livingston & Penn effect

      I think this effect is the direct cause of the prolonged and very intense solar minima as it happened during the Maunder minimum and seems to be repeating now.
      Yes, let’s watch the Sun and pay attention and learn some new lessons, after all this could be the first time humanity witnesses the beginning of a new Ice Age and have conditions to understand it scientifically.

    • I posted some inmfo on quad poles on sol, on the original item re the aberrant behavior.
      seems its happened before, so dont stress out.
      and we havd a looong time without a single sunspot back in 09. again its ok too.
      spaceweather .com has a past and current years listing of the sunspot count. very handy site.

  2. This is the equivalent of snow @ 9500 ft in the mountains around LA in the last week of October ….
    If it does rain in LA at that time of the year, it will snow at 10000 ft.
    Nothing to be excited about….

  3. October snow in the Northern Hemisphere usually melts.

    If it doesn’t, a hard winter is in store.

    But 4 times out of 5, at least, it melts.

    Let’s wait and see, huh?
