  1. Also, from observing the radar returns, it appears to have snowed in whe Wind Rivers of Wyoming for days and days, never been there, and I can’t substaniate with a news report, though it wouldn’t surprise me if they exceeded their already generous predictions for snowfall on the higher peaks, which one of your readers pointed out has Glaciers, even though it’s hundreds of miles south of Glacier National Park because the mountains are thousands of feet higher, apparently, South of Yellowstone at Tetons latitude. Learn something every day, they don’t get as much publicity presumably because they are official designated wilderness, outside the national parks.

    • Ryan…I think the southern Idaho swarm is a tie in to the Snake River Valley Plain and to the Yellowstone culdera…it is not known how big the caldera is. Although in 2016 (end of the world) a new report showed that it is twice the size of what was long assumed.

    • Conversed with a group of National Forest Rangers couple years back, discussed the probable moving of Yellowstone caldera up to 100 miles east as swarms could essentially move magma under Idaho.
      Could explain the rumblings and shaking’s eh?

  2. Meanwhile on Aljazeera TV just now: “Schools closing early in Ohio, US Midwest due to unseasonal heat”. Must be well above 40C to be unbearable for school kids and teachers, with presumably no air-conditioning available. Temperatures in Upington (Northern Cape, South Africa) are frequently above 40C in summer, and people take it in stride. It didn’t affect commando training in the 1980s. I was there!

  3. Snow cover is preserved in southern Siberia
    So cold is not peculiar to the September climate, it was caused by the arctic air invasion along the periphery of a powerful anticyclone.
    In the coming days of September, the region will have to survive the cold. The air temperature here should be 4-6 degrees below the climatic norm.

    The south of Western and Eastern Siberia was covered with snow, the height of snow in places increased to 10 cm. Road accidents were noted on the roads of the region.
    At Baikal today and tomorrow the wind will increase to
    30-35 m/s! Hurricane values!

  4. Whatever happens in Siberia in September and October is the signal for how winter will be in North America. Early Siberian snowpack pretty signals a cold winter in Southern Canada and the Northern tier of the US. It has to do with the Jet Stream blowing across Alaska and down the Rocky Mountains into the prairies….I’m in Northern Minnesota this says to me be ready for -30F nights
