Video – Record-breaking snowstorm caused by sunspot cycle?

“Expect more blizzards moving forward. This is just a taste.”

Why would a record-breaking snowstorm hit Montana this early in October? The creator of this video blames the sunspot cycle.


“We had a huge amount of blizzards in the 1890s during the Dalton Minimum.”

“We had a huge amount of blizzards in the Glassberg Minimum.”

“And now, we’re having a ton more blizzards moving into the Modern Minimum.”

According to the National Weather Service in Great Falls, Montana, this storm was effectively a blizzard in the Havre area, especially considering the severe impacts.

Elsewhere, Zortman, Montana set a new one day record for October with 14 inches of snow reported Tuesday morning.

The heaviest estimated snow amount from this storm was 30 inches in Rocky Boy, Montana. Drifts in at least one location were estimated to be eight feet high, and many areas in Montana, Colorado and Wyoming received a foot (30 cm) or more of snow.

A blizzard occurs when the following conditions are met for at least three consecutive hours: sustained winds or frequent gusts to at least 35 mph and considerable falling and/or blowing snow that frequently reduces visibility to less than a quarter mile.

  1. The number and size of Sun spots the Sun displays are not directly connected to the climate of the Earth. They are a visible indicator of the waxing and waning of the amount of energy the Sun emits at the peak and minimum of each solar cycle, and during each Solar Warm Period and its following Grand Solar Minimum and the Gleissberg series of cycles in between the two solar extremes.
    However, the white phage area around each full sized WOLF spot is connected, this is one of the primary sources of UV and EUV that the Sun emits and can vary by as much as 16% as the cycle progresses.
    It is this latter section of the Suns energy spectrum which is readily absorbed by our Nitrogen/ Oxygen/Water vapour atmosphere, and varies the shape of the World’s Jet streams varying from a solar peak lateral flow to the current meridional flow as to where that captured oceanic solar energy and water vapour is rained out and in what form, Rain or Snow.
    It also varies where warmth is pushed up into high latitudes and where cold is pushed towards tropical regions, for example from Polar Russia to the Middle East or from the Azores to the UK, which has the same latitude as Labrador and its permafrost location.
    Sun spots are an indicator of the current state of the climate in a few years’ time, they may not be the cause, but the effect is noticeable 10 year later, and as a lagging indicator they are the same as CO2 is, as an indicator of the warmth or coolness of the world’s oceans who captured the heat energy from the Sun. Otherwise, the Caribbean sea would have major Hurricanes all year round if CO2 was providing the energy which the Warmist claim.

  2. Rutgers Uni Snow Lab have been compiling Northern Hemisphere snow data for 50 years now. Why not ask them whether the current overall snowcover is unprecedented, higher than average or just normal?

    Switzerland’s mountains had 4 significant (30cm) to heavy (100cm or more) snowfall events in September 2017 (reported rigorously at, but average snowcover was not abnormal during the month because a lot of it melted pretty quickly.

    Just because snow falls early does not mean it lasts very long…..

  3. Norway, Published: 06 October 2017 : Watch out – here comes the winter. Snow is expected to reach 800 meters and snowfall can create difficult driving conditions in several counties.
    Yr has sent out an alert for difficult driving conditions in several counties in the country from Friday night to Saturday morning due to the expected snowfall.
    The warning applies to the mountain crossings in Sogn og Fjordane, Møre og Romsdal, Sør-Trøndelag, Hedmark and Oppland. It reports Yr on its websites on Friday.
    Snow is expected to reach 800 meters, and emergency preparedness will continuously assess the need for emergency preparedness.
    – It’s necessary to be shoddy after the conditions, writes Yr.
    The danger will rise from 20 o’clock Friday evening. At 14 o’clock on Saturday afternoon the danger must be over.

  4. “Expect more blizzards moving forward. This is just a taste.”

    I am in such a predicament. As a snowskier, I want more snow, as a current resident of Houston where it’s still hitting 90 in October, I want below average temps all the time and as a “climate denier”, I want to have a real cooling period start and show all the alarmists that man isn’t squat compared to the sun; BUT I know if a real cooling period starts; it’s going to wreck growing seasons for food so bad that worldwide starvations and wars over food could start.
    Luckily, I do believe the sun is in charge and it really doesn’t matter what I want; it’s going to be the decider and my wants are not going to be at fault.

  5. I would love to hear from PC-Correct Weather people about this:

    What are these towns, in the Rockies, going to do when it snows like this for 2 weeks straight, leaving 10 to 15 feet of snow?

    What then? What do all these societies have planned for that? When every pass over the Rockies is buried under 20 feet of snow…..and it keeps snowing?

    What is the Sierra Club going to do when you can’t get to the Sierras?

  6. The Sun,EArth, Moon system with its continual processional rotation through the galaxy coupled with the oceans and recent findings by scientists that there are a lot more undersea volcanic vents should, could, would, might convince a few folks to sit down, and take a breath and realize we (humans) didn’t do anything and we can’t do anything. Further its not all bad that greenhouse gasses have increased substantially in the last few hundred years.

    Our problem as usual is we have and continue to elect “Control Freaks” who want to control everything.

  7. Its getting serious when you get that much this early in the year.
    I remember the blizzards of the 1970s and live it. 1977 eastern long island N.Y. we got a number of small snow storms and then the big one hit in January and when it was done we had just over 6′ Ft of snow. No one alive that had lived their whole there could remember seeing that much snow in and around the Riverhead area. There more I can say about that event, but best stop here.

  8. It is really amazing what that evil CO2 can do – it even causes fewer sunspots. We must ALL stop uses evil fossil fuels and never drive a gas-guzzling SUV. /sarc

  9. Please see this link:-

    This year all the snow has vanished from Scotland. We had a very warm summer and recent winters have been surprisingly mild.
    Not long ago the glaciarette up Observatory Gulley in Ben Nevis made us think the tide has turned.
    Iain Cameron runs a Facebook page to keep track of the scottish snow patches.
    Myself? Too busy visiting the distilleries LOL.

  10. Im wondering what this will Mean for the southeast us. IT has been warmer than normal recently but i would have to beleive this cant last forever and maybe we will have a rough Winter!

    • Brad part of that is likey because we didn’t get the strong La nina effect as we normally do after such strong El nino so because we only had a weak la nina following the nino we have been only slowly moving down word from the strong El nino but I tend to suspect as the solar minimum gets deeper and nears the drop off will speed up more in the next few years

    • Another reason is we been in a predominantly positive nam nao/Ao regeme over the last few years positive nao Ao winters more times then not are warm base patterns there are exceptions of course winters like 94 2013-2014 where other factors came into play your want or pefer to see a negative nao blocking regem something like the 2008-2011 periold.
