Further evidence that the Grand Solar Minimum is cutting the growing season short.
As revealed by the meteo-paris.com graph (below), France’s daily max temps began plummeting on Sept 23 to levels well-below the climatalogical average.
The graph shows that max-temps since the beginning of autumn (Sept 21) to October 9 have had an anomaly of -2C. According to meteo-paris.com, such a low average has not occurred for 22 years, since 1998’s anomaly of -2.1C.
Temperatures are still expected to be below seasonal norms this week, reports meteo-paris.com. “For example, in Grenoble on Wednesday, it is expected [to be] 9C in the afternoon, almost 10C below the normal level of the season!”
As recently noted by La Chaîne Météo on Twitter, record-lows have been sweeping the country of late, with their tweet adding that heavy, early-season #neige (snow) will persist above 1,200m over the next few days (at least).
