Record cold in parts of Europe—some the coldest in 100 years, some the coldest ever

Summer snows fell in Sweden and a city in Saxony experienced its coldest temperature on record.

The Local also reported Ljungskile on the country’s west coast experienced the coldest day the area has seen in more than 100 years. Temperatures were below 47 degrees Fahrenheit Wednesday.

In Germany, the city of Carlsfeld was also hit by record low temperatures. The Local reported temperatures dropped to 34 degrees Fahrenheit — the coldest ever recorded in the town. Carlsfeld began recording temperatures in 1990.

The Bavarian town of Bad Königshofen saw near-record low temperatures for the month, hitting 34 degrees Fahrenheit as well, just above the record low set in 1987.

  1. In the night of the 11th of august the ground temperature in the mid-eastern part of holland dropped to 0 degrees Celsius or 32 degrees fahrenheit . Only an incoming cloud-cover after midnight prevented the first frost-night in mid august ……..
    Of course the meteorologists explained this as a very temporary accident at very located place , only point of measuring within a 50 miles circle and of course not a word in the MSM newspapers lead by brainwashed idiots .

  2. Perth, Australia, is on track for the coldest winter this century.

    Failing a warmer spell in the next fortnight, the weather bureau predicts Perth will post its coldest winter since 1998. “There have also been three confirmed reports of snow on the Stirling Ranges this winter so far, which is the highest number since 1998,” Bureau of Meteorology spokesman Neil Bennet said. “On average, snow falls once a year in WA.”

    Looking at next week’s weather map, they’re in for MORE snow this Wednesday / Thursday as an Antarctic southerly blast roars up from the frozen continent. It’s worser than they thunked!

  3. In Slovakia I stopped winter heating on July 4th and started back on August 11th. This Summer is very mild, very few days over 30C.

  4. Further she has a good chance of being correct.

    As far as the climate of the earth this period of time is in no way unique.

    The climate in the big picture is controlled by Milankovitch Cycles, Land Ocean arrangements, with Solar Activity and the Geo Magnetic Field Strength of the earth superimposed upon this.

    These factors then exert influences on the terrestrial items on the earth that determine the climate.

    Terrestrial Items

    Atmospheric Circulation

    Sea Surface Temperatures

    Global Cloud Coverage

    Global Snow Coverage

    Global Sea Ice Coverage


    Volcanic Activity

    All of this gives an x climate over x time. The historical climatic record supports this.

    That is WHAT likely makes the climate change, NOT the scam they promote which is AGW.

    The historical climatic record showing this period of time in the climate is in no way unique while changes in CO2 concentrations having no correlation in leading to resultant climate changes.

    Now how the cooling evolves will have to be monitored. Of course going from an El Nino condition to an La Nina condition is going to cause an initial cooling.

    For clues that if solar is involved the depth of the cooling will have to be monitored and if the cooling is accompanied by the terrestrial items I have mentioned above.

    Each one of those terrestrial items having been shown to be linked to Milankovitch Cycles Land Ocean Arrangements in the big slow moving picture while solar and geo magnetic variability being factors that can change these terrestrial items on a much smaller time scale.

    The solar parameters needed are

    Solar Wind sub 350 km/sec.

    AP index 5 or lower

    EUV LIGHT 100 units or less

    COSMIC RAY COUNTS – 6500 or greater

    SOLAR IRRADIANCE – off by .15% or greater.

    All very attainable going forward and being compounded by a weakening geo magnetic which if attained with sufficient duration of time will translate into bringing the terrestrial items that control our climate to values which will cause the climate to cool gradually if not in a sharp drop off if certain thresholds should be meant.

  5. As well as being below mean for most of the melt season.
    In previous years the 0 degree cross over was during the middle of September.
    That said, even Greece is being affected by cooler Northerly winds. In previous years, August tempretures in the low 30s, this year high twenties, but very, very pleasent.
