Snowiest November EVER in parts of New York and New England

Considering that this is where the first evidence that we’re entering an ice age could appear, I think record snowfall in these areas is very important._______________

30 Nov 2018 – “A historically snowy November,” reads the headline in The Washington Post. 

Snowfall totals across New York and New England have surpassed one to two feet in many areas and three to four feet – and even more! – in others.

This record and near-record November snowfall has accumulated mainly in the past two weeks.

The 19.5 inches (49.5 cm) of snow reported in Burlington, Vermont, since mid-month is almost quadruple thee city’s normal November snowfall of 5.1 inches (13 cm), and makes this their fifth-snowiest November on record.  The record for November snowfall in Burlington is 24 inches (60 cm), set 118 years ago in 1900.

In Maine, Caribou’s 29.3 inches (almost 75 cm) of snow is more than 2½ times the city’s average November snowfall of 11.5 inches (29 cm), making it their third-snowiest November on record.

Meanwhile, the 60.5 inches (154 cm) of snow on New Hampshire’s Mount Washington is the eighth-most on record for the month.

The 46 inches (117 cm) of snow on Vermont’s Mount Mansfield is the most on record this early in the season. Such depths are more typical of  January.

Smugglers’ Notch in Vermont reports 86 inches (218 cm) to date, Bolton Valley reports 84 inches (7 ft), and Jay Peak reports 72 inches (6 ft).

“November never looked so good,” says Jay Peak on its website.

“Winter hasn’t even hit, and we have already received five feet (152 cm) of snow this season,” crows Sunday River Resort in Maine.

    • I’ve seen a few opinions on this with an undersea volcano seemingly the most popular view. However a thought struck me reading your comment, could it have anything to do with the possible impending magnetic reversal?

  1. Areas near the coast (downstate NY, coastal New England) will be milder due to the warmer oceans (heated by undersea volcanoes) but interior areas (Chicago, upstate NY, VT) will have blizzards.

  2. Yes, this “very rare and exciting event”, as foretold 18 years ago, remains stubbornly common and increasingly so. Do libs have a limit on believing demonstrated-false, climate apocalypse predictions. Apparently not.

    • “Do libs have a limit on believing demonstrated-false, climate apocalypse predictions” ???

      NO !

      They (Propagandist Liberals) “LOVE” the lie, it is built-into-THEM !

      And truth is something foreign to them, they sold-their-souls long ago, but…

      Their King is at hand and they had better continue with the lies, or they are soon to shredded, unmercifully !!!

    There’s been record snow in this part of the continent for the past few years… Could be the start of a trend.

  4. ‘We Have to Pay Attention’: Global Natural Gas Prices Tied to Sunspot Activity’

    “A new theory gaining traction among commercial meteorologists and hedge fund investors suggests that sunspots on the sun’s surface could provide insight into natural gas prices.”

    So now there’s money to be made on the opposing view how much switching and hand wringing should we expect to see. Carbon fuels are the new black?

    From the article:
    “I was a real skeptic on the impact of solar cycles and sunspots,” Todd Crawford, senior meteorological scientist at IBM’s The Weather Co., recently told Bloomberg. However, after studying cold winter patterns, he was “on board,” he told the outlet.

    • The real link between lots, and lack of sunspot is UV and EUV, a significant amount (up to 16% ) of the UV originates from the surrounding white area of the Spot called the Phage area. The direct impact of UV and most energy at the blue end of the Sun’s spectrum affect our atmosphere as it is readily absorbed.
      During Solar Max with 100s of large spots per month UV is very high, and the worlds Jet Streams are very lateral, during Solar minimum between cycles and a large proportion of the cycle decline to minimum, UV decreases rapidly by up to 16% over the whole of the cycle. With very low levels of UV the world Jet Streams are very meridional, and prone to blocking by large High Pressure systems.
      These latter, solar minimum high pressure system are maintained and refreshed by periodic Sudden Atmospheric Warming events (SAWs) these are linked to long lasting coronial holes which orbit in the Sun’s atmosphere once every 28 day, which is the orbital rotation period of our Sun.
      A prime example has been high pressure over Europe for much of the late spring and summer; this high was periodically refreshed by the Azores High ridging up over the UK and being absorbed by the stationary blocking high over Europe.
      These events feature in every Minimum period and for most of a GSM affect cycle. The Weather history of Europe since the 12th Century is littered with SAW events both Cold and Hot, both imply drought, as the prevailing wind turns to a dry easterly.

  5. Meanwhile here in France where I live, we have very mild temperatures, 60 F (16°C) right now after noon. There is a weather channel that uses sun to predict the weather (some months ahead) and he is right most of the time.
