  1. so much for cold and snow being a thing of the past! I can’t find any palm trees in Saskatchewan and we obviously have global cooling for many years now!

  2. After warm Dec and January, the Canadian plains have been cold. The Lethbridge, Alberta airport wx station has collected data since 1938, and this February will the coldest on record. So far the mean daily temp has been 15C° below average. The first few hours of Feb 1 were above freezing, but the temp has not been above freezing here since about 6 AM on Feb 1. Unreal! Unheard of.

  3. AOC says cold records are proof of global warming. The colder it gets the more it proves climate change.

    In snowflake world the facts don’t matter, only feelings make reality.

  4. Meanwhile the uk is experiencing spring like temeperatures; so much so that trees will begin to break dormancy if this goes on for much longer. And then whamm! a hard feeeze in march and its all over along with any shoots and blossoms…such goes the grand solar minimum.

  5. Winter 2018/19: Sudden Stratospheric Warming – But Why No Beast From The East?
    Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW)
    There have been a number of predictions that January and February this year could feature some very cold and snowy weather and not just from the usual tabloid sensationalist stories that purely do it for click bait. The Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) that occurred on the 1st January this year was widely speculated to perhaps emulate the late February 2018 SSW – which was implicated in bringing the early March 2018 Beast From The East.

    You may have heard talk of the UK possibly seeing some colder weather next week and that ‘things going on’ in the upper atmosphere may be playing a part.

    The ‘thing’ happening in the atmosphere is known as Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW). When it does happen, it attracts a lot of interest in the UK because it is sometimes linked to the onset of cold weather in winter.

    Solar cycle

    Coronal hole size and population correspond with the solar cycle.[3] As the Sun heads toward solar maximum the coronal holes move closer and closer to the Sun’s poles.[3] During solar maximum, the number of coronal holes decreases until the magnetic fields on the Sun reverse. Afterwards new coronal holes appear near the new poles. The coronal holes then increase in size and number, extending farther from the poles as the Sun moves toward solar minimum again.[4] There are permanent coronal holes on the north and south poles of the Sun.[1]
