Below-normal temperatures expected across entire northern half of U.S.

Below-normal temperatures expected across entire northern half of U.S.

Note how similar this map is to the ice-age map on the lower right-hand side of this page. No wonder those areas were glaciated during the last ice age.


This weekend into Monday – The cold will extend across northern tier states from Washington to Maine, and as far south as Oklahoma, Arkansas and Virginia, according to the Climate Prediction Center.



“You are talking about 30 degrees below normal highs. That is pretty darn cold,” said National Weather Service meteorologist James Brown in Maine.

Up to half a foot (15 cm) of snow could fall from the Upper Mississippi Valley to the Northeast on Friday and Saturday, while areas east of the Appalachians could see freezing rain and sleet on Saturday.

  1. Yup my money is on a solid Maunder Minimum before 2025. I guess that the angry Sun of 2012 Myan prohpesy and glyphs was a Sun that was angry and ran away. Somehow the warmists missed that point all together when applying hedonistic adjustments to the emperical measurements of Solar activity, Earth temperatures, and no weighting for the correct cyclic hystorical patterns. No warming no funding…. The AGW crowd must be seething.

    • so when it warms up to above average temps around Christmas and stays above average for about 10-15 days, can we point to that as an example of global warming?If this is the next Little Ice age then I’m not worried. If we start to see extreme cold arctic highs drop south of Canada and snowfall that begins in September and October in the Mid-Atlantic states, then I’ll start to worry, but so far this is nothing to be concerned about.

  2. really odd how the chunk of coastline to the left is “normal”
    sorta washington state area
    but the intense colds above n below it?
    how does that work i wonder?
    i thought the winds dropping down causing it would be fairly intense band wise

  3. Morocco, December 17, 2016. Dozens of cars and buses stuck because of the heavy snow, without any interference from the ministries. (Sorry for the partly imperfect translation)
    Exist since nine o’clock at night on Friday evening, dozens of cars and buses carrying hundreds of citizens between the cities of Marrakesh and Ouarzazate, stuck due to heavy snowfall.
    And heavy snow prevented buses and cars from the movement in causing crashes because of skiing in the slope of the mountain, raising the severity of travelers fear of disasters cars and buses coup from the top of the mountain without any intervention by the Ministries.
    And the transfer of a citizen in a post on his Facebook that a number of members of his family are still stuck mountain due to heavy snow, which is still Taatsagat.
    And he said ‘Mustafa Urban’: a few minutes ago I contacted the traveler Boukhala Rafqat aunts Althelat from Marrakech heading to the city of Ouarzazate across the Straits Ti_ka to Otmain for their safety, if their are stuck between the snow, do not they can progress and do not they can return, and while they are in the bus shelter from the cold and snow, if the car and the bus Ttzhalk toward the edge of the mountain. Until this moment they could not stop skiing vehicles and the bus towards the Glen to the large number of ice on the road.
    The dangerous thing is that people have not been able to get out of the bus because of the extreme cold and frequent Altheloj putting their lives on the line! Not up yet dark and no snowmobiles.
    Please who can connect the call to the interests of the gendarmerie or the Ministry of Transportation and deliver the message that does not hesitate.

  4. This was ALL predicted by the brilliant, Nobel Prize winning research Scientist, Senator Al Gore. We are going to have 30 to 50 years are FREEZING Arctic Blasts, all due to the peasants and low life scum of American people,( not the Educated Elite of the Gore/Bush/Rothschild/Rockefeller/Morgan/Kennedy Assholes. The white scum who drive to work are causing this FREEZING and butthole Gore needs to fly around, on his private JET, to tell us all to cut back on our use of home heating. F all of them.

  5. Hi Robert:

    Caveat here may be … what’s happening at the equator and between the Tropics … of Cancer and Capricorn …

    See: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/12/071203-expanding-tropics.html

    What if more solar energy is coming in … via coronal holes and their related solar streams of energy … in which case sunspot drop off, perhaps not so relevant as it may have been historically …

    If the planet emits or radiates its energy mostly at the equator … and energy or heat from such is seen between the Tropic lines … if that energy returns to the planet via the poles once incoming from the sun, hitting the earth’s magnetic field and getting pushed to the poles … but that energy radiated out mostly at the equator (via angular momentum?) also returns to the poles via the looping of the (torus shape?) earth’s polarized energy, or magnetic fields, arriving back in at the poles and cycling that way … IF that energy drops … less energy in at the poles … more ice … i.e., dense energy …

    BUT … what if the planet cycles more energy through it … AS EVIDENCED by more heat at the equator getting radiating N&S of the Equator line to the Tropic lines … those Tropic lines will start to shift to each pole respectively (see article linked to above now showing evidence of that) …

    THAT also would mean more energy returning via the Earth’s magnetic field or polarized energy torus field dynamics … to the poles … so MORE ENERGY at the poles … so, watch for warming at the poles … (saw an article on that recent anomaly, as well … will look for the link)

    ALSO, THOUGH … watch for more energy coming in at the poles, to push the jet streams towards the equator … AND THEREFORE see polar vortexes or masses of cold air … pushed towards the equator …

    THAT would result in atmospheric mixing … which is cold air pushing to the equator … that, though, also happening while heat from the equator is rising or increasing … and pushing towards each pole …

    SO … ATMPOSPHERIC MIXING, then … of energies … would be evident … that, in areas where there have been ice ages and ice on the ground … in ice age(s) past … BUT IS THERE AN IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE HERE?

    THE DIFFERENCE being … is the planet heating … from the inside out? The energy for that coming from the sun … IN SPITE OF sunspots disappearing …

    AND is there atmospheric mixing in between the Tropic lines (the heat shifting towards the poles from the equator) … and the poles … which pole areas are themselves warming (a seeming anomaly, but not necessarily an anomaly?) from a stronger energy arriving back eventually from that increasing energy radiated at the equator … also, warming from the influx of increased solar energy from the coronal hole boosted solar wind of energy / radiation from the sun … meaning the planet will also circulate that increased energy in its fields … look at the torus model of the earth’s magnetic field or polarized energy … out at the equator … back in at the poles …

    IF ATMOSPHERIC mixing , as a result of a warming from the inside of the planet … IS taking place … the atmospheric mixing, one might expect … over time … will actually trend towards a more homogenous and warmer planet in its atmospheric layers … again, over time … THAT … as incoming energy gets integrated …

    COINCIDENTALLY … as shown here (see post map) … colder air masses over prior ice age land areas … at the moment …

    BUT NOT ice on the ground there … and in such a situation … at least while energy increases or gets boosted in from the sun … ice perhaps not expected on the ground, under that situation or those conditions … BUT, atmospheric mixing definitely expected … over those same areas once covered by ice in past ice ages … which is presently being seen … along with seemingly anomalous (but not so?) warming at the poles … hmmm …

    IN FACT … if temperature increases are great enough at the equator, over time … will life at the equator and spreading towards each pole from there … to the Tropic lines … become unbearably hot, perhaps …again, over time …

    Robert, perhaps for a time … the ice records as a historical guide … will not apply … IF solar energy is on the increase now, over time … from coronal hole boosted solar wind streams … while the sunspots disappear this time …

    OH … and associated with all this heating from the inside out … more earthquakes and volcanoes … BUT NOT AN ICE AGE? At least for the time being?

    SO … perhaps consider that atmospheric mixing of the energy of the layers of the atmosphere … over prior Ice Age ice areas … DOES NOT necessarily indicate a pending ICE AGE … for the time being, at least …

    Hmm … IF the scenario becomes less energy into the planet … no sun spots AND no coronal hole boosted solar wind of energy in … well … perhaps then expect less energy out at the equator … the Tropic lines as defined moving back to the equator … less energy into the poles and increasing ice caps at the poles …

    THEN … an Ice Age … but not before?

    Ah well … things to ponder … 🙂
