Historically early and deadly – Arctic cold grips much of nation

Breaking records set more than 100 years ago – More than 100 in Alabama alone.

Record lows were reported this morning from Birmingham, Alabama, to Burlington, Vermont, from New York City to Detroit, from Wichita to St. Louis, From Atlanta to Ohio. Birmingham’s low of 18F shattered the previous record of 22F set in 1911.

New York City and Buffalo, New York, as well as parts of Ohio set new cold records. In Kansas alone, at least six cities, including Wichita, set cold records for the date on Tuesday.

In Missouri, St. Louis dropped to 11F, breaking a record for the date that had stood for more than 100 years.

Meanwhile, the entire state of Alabama was under a freeze warning as temperatures dipped into the 20s and below, breaking records at more than 100 locations.

Record-challenging low temperatures were everywhere. Single-digit temperatures descended on much of the Midwest, where Detroit sank to 7F, shattering the old record of 12F for the day.

Drastically colder than normal temperatures stretched all the way to the Atlantic Coast. Temperatures dipped into the low 20s in Atlanta and in Jackson, Mississippi. Similar numbers swept across the East Coast – New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C.

“We will be challenging records everywhere,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Tyler Roys.

  1. After all of these decades of global warming; and not just normal warming, but unprecedented warming; even worse than they originally thought….. one would think that an early cold snap like this would be impossible.

  2. You know I fully support you. I know you are right – on ice ages and magnetic reversals/evolution.
    However, 100 years is Nothing in terms of climate.
    What is really notable here is that the Main Stream Masters are not reporting it when they report every hot “record” broken.

  3. 22 degrees at my place near Raleigh tonight. Just moved here recently and we haven’t even figured out how to close the pool yet so I had to let the pump run all night to prevent anything from freezing out there. I was under the impression that some people don’t close their pools at all around here. I knew it got cold occasionally during winter here, but I didn’t expect these temps in early November! We’ve been getting hard frost on and off for about a month already. This weather is more akin to what would be normal 5-600 miles north of here this time of year. We’re not quite smashing records but definitely close to them.

    • I lived in Raleigh at one point (I liked the place except for the heat & humidity in summer… but the job I had was awful so I left after a year). Still have friends in the area.

      The year before I lived there I was told they had an ice storm from hell… so be prepared for that possibility. (Know that Raleigh is far more likely to get ice storms than snow). They also have some very nasty thunderstorms and flooding in parts of the city (especially around Crabtree mall… that “little” creek in back floods badly).

      People I worked with who lived where they would normally have a 20-30 minute commute reported it took them over 2 hours to get home.

  4. This dang Gorebull warming will be the death of us.
    BTW where is the Gorebull?
    We all know about the “Gore Effect”
    We don’t want him over here in Scotland – its cold enough.

    • They only report what they want you to believe. Tell-a-vision. Never the truth. No matter what you do. Alternative sites like this are the only way we get the truth.

  5. Colder temps will not be a problem for the fossil fuel opponents.
    They will “discover” the mechanism that CO2 is “reflecting” energy
    back into space, since it is at the “critical level”, as predicted by
    numerous “models”.

  6. Evenkia City (Siberia) returned to the championship cold temps

    November of this year in Siberian open spaces began with abnormally warm weather. In Evenkia, the Siberian pole of cold, the air temperature exceeded the usual for this time by 8-10 degrees, and in the daytime the frosts were very small, up to -4°C degrees. But warm weather was maintained only in the first five days of the month. Frosts began to grow stronger, and by the middle of the month it was over Siberian open spaces that a hotbed of abnormally cold weather had formed. On the night of November 14, it was in Evenkia that the lowest temperature in Russia was observed. The thermometer reached -45°C.

    Severe frosts were also noted in the southeast of Siberia, in the Irkutsk region the temperature dropped to -40°C. And in the north of the Trans-Baikal Territory, the minimum temperature even set a new daily record. In the Chara lane, it dropped to -41.9 °C, which is a degree below the record held since 1984.

    In the coming days, abnormally cold weather in Siberia, in Buryatia and the Trans-Baikal Territory will continue.

    Severe frost hit the Urals

    Now the Arctic anticyclone has literally fallen on the heads of the Urals. He brought very cold air from the Kara Sea. As a result, severe frost hit the region. In the north of the Sverdlovsk region, the temperature dropped to −30°C.
    Snow cover is getting closer to the center of European Russia.

    In November, snow cover appears throughout Russia, with the exception of Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the valleys of the Ciscaucasia. A stable snow cover is established in Siberia and the Far East, excluding the narrow coastal strip in the south of Primorsky Krai, and in European Russia south of latitude 55 degrees. In Moscow and the Moscow Region, a stable snow cover is established, as a rule, after the 25th day of the last autumn month. This year the weather adheres to climatic indicators.

    On European territory, south of the 60th parallel, there is no snow yet. But to the north of this line the snow fell already before spring.

    Its lowest height in the Vologda and in the north of the Leningrad regions (from 3 to 11 cm). And the largest snowdrifts on European territory – in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug – up to 42 cm.

    In the Asian territory, snow lies everywhere, even in the south of the territory. Its height varies from 2 to 40 cm in the Urals, from 2 to 48 cm in Siberia (in the central regions of the Krasnoyarsk Territory), and from 3 to 59 cm in the Far East (in the north of the Khabarovsk Territory).

  7. Hi Robert,
    Here is a site and two charts which shows the extrems of both warming and cooling during Holocene:
    The text in piece tell the reader to look at this following chart first and then come back to the notes and view the first chart:
    First, go look at this page and then come back here. The chart on the previous page shows the temperature history from a Greenland ice core representing thousands of years. That ice core is a window into natural climate change history. The above chart is the visual depiction of the extreme temperature change peaks and troughs from that ice core history. (Note: The “peaks” represent the maximum temperature increase from the preceding climate trough. The “troughs” represent the maximum temperature decline from the preceding climate peak.) What does the this peak/trough graph tell us?

    One, Earth experiences significant climate changes on a cyclical basis. It goes from extreme warming, to extreme cooling, then rebounds to an extreme warming peak, followed by an extreme cooling trough, and so on, and so on. (The above chart represents only 9,000 years of this bouncing back-and-forth, which has taken place for eons.)

    Two, all these extreme climate changes are natural. Humans had nothing to do with the Earth’s climate bouncing back and forth, from one extreme to another.

    Three, the extremes arrive, not like clockwork, but on a sporadic basis within a range. For significant peaks, the range between each has been from 500 to 1,300 years (average between peaks is 995 years). For cooling, the range between extremes is from 660 to 1,540 years (average between troughs is 980 years).

    Four, prior to modern times, there have been 9 previous extreme warming peaks and 9 cooling troughs, over the last 9,000 years.

    Five, the extreme peak increase from a previous trough has been +3.7°C; the extreme trough decrease from a previous peak has been -3.0°C.

  8. Notice: this section:
    Quote: Three, the extremes arrive, not like clockwork, but on a sporadic basis within a range. For significant peaks, the range between each has been from 500 to 1,300 years (average between peaks is 995 years). For cooling, the range between extremes is from 660 to 1,540 years (average between troughs is 980 years).

    The lowest pair of dates are very close to the time taken for a flow of water from the Arctic, takes to reach the base of the Pacific water colum of 500 years to commence out gassing its sequestrated CO2,

  9. yes we had 29F in Charleston,SC Wednesday morning and only 40’s the last 2 days for highs. More typical for January!

  10. Next year, when the record lows being broken are only one year old, will seem much less dramatic than 100 year records, but will actually be much more significant.
    Think about it.

  11. Dear Robert, TKS for this very interesting and eye-opening article. I can actually notice that in FACT it is getting COLDER and NOT WARMER ! I live in Eastern Scotland at sea level, and quite honestly I don’t remember an early November so cold before. The other day (13th Nov) it was minus 7 when we got up and it didn’t go higher than minus 1 all day. Those are temperatures that on average are reserved for late December, Jan and Feb. Due to the Gulf Stream the UK is famous for mild winters. However, I personally believe from observation alone that something is starting to change in the climate, and it is certain NOT getting warmer in general. I know those from the UK could argue that when we get it very cold in November then often we will get a mild December or even the rest of the winter. This time the ‘cold snap’ had come unusually early here in Scotland. The mountains have been covered in snow for at least the past month. We don’t have high mountains in Scotland and the highest is only 4000 feet high. All of October and November increasingly have been COLD. Why? Why not the traditional alternating British weather of WARM and mild and a little COLD? I believe that the whole Northern Hemisphere will be hit with EXTREMELY COLD TEMPS and a hard WINTER this year of 2019-2020. Let’s see if I’m right or not?
