Snowfall data from NOAA Rutger’s Snow Lab for April is in. It ranked high enough to make the cold season (November 2012 to April 2013) average the HIGHEST in the record (back to 1966).

    I thought that the Arctic was the most affected area by the global warming…hmmmm

    :-) gee did the big oil/koch bros miss a monthly cheque to certain persons?
    and they told the truth for a change?
    I have cheered myself immensely imagining some chap at NOAA crying as he was forced to print and insert this onto their pages:-)

    Ice melt results from sun angle and wind. The ice begins to melt in the 2nd or 3rd week of March, when temps are still -20, it begins to freeze the middle of Sept. long after temperature has gone below 0. It is cute when CO2 is given a bigger role in climate than the sun and wind.

    “Children just won’t know what…,” oh forget it. The alarmists’ lies will eventually bring them down.

    Meanwhile, still snowing in Alps, and southern hemisphere ski season is about to start on schedule: http://welove2ski.com/snow-report-may-16-2013

    I am not totally surprised given the amount of blizzards we experienced (in this country alone) since late October !
    Lends even more credibility to your site Bob and it is in perfect alignment of what was to be expected due to global cooling, solar activity, more precip, ice age cycles…etc.
    And don’t forget people, snow is a product of cold temperatures – not warm !

    Thanks for the great update !

    The record open Arctic of Summer 2012 set the stage – you should see what happened to Asia too! For a video excerpt containing just the meteorology portion of a talk given at CPAC in DC, see:

      Tom Wysmuller, thank-you so much for posting here. It is refreshing to hear a person who is both educated and intelligent, articulate the subject so clearly.

      Very nice video, thanks!
      Notice that at 13:42 he says,
      ” … 2008 BTW, according to satellite data, was the most snow covered extent ever before seen in the N. hemisphere in the 42 years that they have satellite in orbit… “

      This agrees with the idea that deep solar minimums should correspond to large snow cover, but in the following graph

      based on data from NOAA.
      The 2007-2008 snow cover is not even shown among the 24 greatest (since the 60′s).
      Where is the catch?
      NOAA just skipped the greatest snow cover of all time?:-) …

    NOAA Record snow, 12, 793 snow and cold records, winter returning to Alaska, snow in England, snow in India, famers plagued with cold and snow, more talk about another Little Ice Age, and CO2 hits 400 ppm. It looks like we are already in a mini ice age. Better start stocking up on long shelf life food, warm blankets and clothes.

    And, as per my Real Science comment:
    Meanwhile, according to NextBigFuture: “The Russians have proven a land invasion of Canada is possible by driving over the North Pole. A group of Russian explorers have driven across the North Pole and are heading to Resolute, Nunavut, in specialized amphibious trucks [They reached the geographical North Pole on April 6 and expect to reach the Nunavut hamlet in June]. This basically proves that a land invasion into Canada from Russia is possible with a few thousand amphibious trucks and amphibious tanks. Russia has thousands of amphibious tanks and armored vehicles. I am just saying… ” http://nextbigfuture.com/2013/05/russians-have-proven-land-invasion-of.html
    How could the Russians drive their tanks over the “ice free” Arctic?

    Heavy Late Snowfall Shocks Newfondland

    Central Newfoundland digs out from freak snowfall

    58 centimetres of snow falls in Gander between Saturday and Sunday

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/story/2013/05/20/nl-gander-record-snowfall-may24-.html

    The Victoria Day long weekend this year has meant shovels, icy roads and a record-breaking snowfall for many residents of central Newfoundland.

    In Gander, 58 centimetres of snow fell between Saturday morning and Sunday night, with peak snowfall on Saturday evening.

    Environment Canada meteorologist Jody Boyd said the snowfall blew away the prior record.

    “Our normal snowfall for the month of May is just 13 centimetres, and the highest monthly total in the past was set in 1972,” Boyd said. “For the whole month, it was 49 centimetres, so we beat that over the span of 36 hours.”

    Other parts of the province suffered inclement weather, including rain, drizzle and fog in eastern Newfoundland as well as cold temperatures.

    Ken, I agree that snow is ice and therefore cannot exist above 0ºC but actually snow usually only forms when sub-zero (dry) air rubs against relatively warm air which is saturated with water vapour.
    Normally the Polar Air Cell sits over the north like a wobbling jellyfish of coolth with a gently waving southern edge along which the snow forms. In recent years this has changed to being more like an octopus with long curling tentacles of coolth penetrating southwards into the “warm” mid-latitude air.
    At squall.sfsu.edu the polar jet-stream map for the past few days helps explain the location of spring snow-fall this past week. IMO this pattern is typical of a cooling phase.

  13. F. Guimaraes says:

    Interesting that from the last 6 winters since 2007-08, only the 2008-09 is not present among the 24 with greatest snow cover.
    Just the one in which the present solar-minimum reached is lowest level so far…
    why? Low cloudiness?
