Snow in New York’s Adirondack Mountains – On the 1st of September

“Winter is coming,” says “First Day of September Brings Snow to the Adirondack Mountains.”

  1. The same with the Presidential in northern NH. On Sept 1., by early evening, Mt. Madison and Adams both had enough snow on their peaks , to be visible from the valleys below. Although, not common, it’s not unheard of for there to be visible snow up there…this early in the season. Records have shown in the late 60’s this occurred.

    • The late sixties were in the last cool sun period SC20.
      The inconvenient AMP affected solar cycle between the two peaks of solar output 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, and the reducing SC23. The cycle gave rise to the first alarmist viewpoint that the world was heading for a major Glaciation period that quickly turned onto its head, into a Warmist view point once SC21 started. The next major Glaciation period may well start in 1000 years from now, but not yet.
      SC20 was a much higher output cycle than this one SC24, yet it was marked with significant periods of Meridional jet Stream activity, blocking highs and stationary low pressure systems, Massive NH winters, and great summers such as 1976 in the UK.
      Unlike SC20, SC24 has been much lower in output than SC5, the first cycle of the Dalton GSM; SC25 is currently forecast by many solar experts to be even lower in output. In my viewpoint this Modern GSM is likely to be on a par with Wolf, it might return to more normal energy output levels by 2056.

  2. Yup they are only one or two cold winters away from changing the signs of a few forcings and “Proving” that Co2 causes cooling.

  3. I’ve been saying for a few yrs. now that we are not quite back to the 60s -70s cooler times yet, mid to late Sept frost happened a few yrs. back then, and once it snowed here in N. IL on Oct. 2. I can remember almost every yr. hauling in corn and getting pelted with sleet or wet snow in mid to late Oct. I think we are there or getting there fast. The springs and summers are cooler now. In 67 we got the worst blizzard in my life here to this day in Chicago area. I’ve been telling people that my sweet corn has been getting later and later for 20+ yrs. now but they think it’s just me, I had corn growing in my sand tire when I was 4, been growing corns for 55 yrs now, just gardens & heirloom varieties, not GMO fields. Nothing produces like it did in 2012 or before. Seems for my stuff, that something devastating has happened since then.

  4. I remember my grand father telling me we could grow corn in North Central Tx in the teens and 20s then again I the 60s to 1980. Now they ar e growing it again.
