Mexico was hit by a freak early morning storm on Sunday that saw hail pile up to over 6 feet (1.8 m) in and around the city of Guadalajar.
Roads were blocked and extensive damage was reported following the monster hail that struck at 01:00 AM Sunday (local time). And while seasonal hail storms do occur, there is no record of anything this heavy.
“I’ve never seen such scenes in Guadalajara,” Jalisco state governor Enrique Alfaro said. “These are never-before-seen natural phenomena. It’s incredible.”
Streets were quickly transformed into rivers of dense, fast-moving hail, trapping drivers in their vehicles and forcing numerous rescue operations.
At least six neighbourhoods in the city outskirts woke up to ice pellets up to 6.6 feet (2 m) deep.
Fortunately, no casualties have been reported.
Although two people did show “early signs of hypothermia,” according to the Civil Protection office.
This is likely a sign of Climate Change, only not as most folks know it — this is a Grand Solar Minimum.
The sun is shutting down (relatively).
Low solar activity is reverting the jet streams to a meridional (wavy) flow, which in turn is diverting rare and extreme weather fronts to unsuspecting regions — these are often very-localised, too.
These boundaries between different weather patterns are also becoming more pronounced/extreme.
In addition, we’re seeing more cloud nucleation due to increasing Cosmic Rays (Svensmark et al).
While research by Scott et al, 2014 suggests that solar wind controls lightning on Earth, so an “increase in Galactic Cosmic Ray flux may directly trigger lightning through ‘runaway breakdown’ of electrons.”
If we are indeed entering the next GSM, we should expect localised extreme events, such as the hail in Mexico, to increase in the coming years as the sun continues its shutdown.
Even NASA now appear on-board, with their solar cycle 25 forecast revealing it’ll be the sun’s weakest cycle for the last 200 years:
The cold times are returning.
Crops are already being lost.
