The western U.S. was blasted by a yet ANOTHER brutal Arctic air mass yesterday, Oct 28, with this one delivering the COLDEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.
Peter Sinks, Utah –east of Logan– broke the Lower-48’s cold temperature record for the month of October on Monday morning with a staggering reading of minus 35 degrees.
The area is know for it’s cold temperatures thanks to its high elevation (8,164 ft) as well as its unique topography, said Chicago meteorologist Tom Skilling.
“It is a basin a half mile (804.67 meters) in diameter with no outlet, like a large bowl. Cold air collects in the basin on clear, calm nights,” Skilling said. “Very low temperatures can occur there, especially during outbreaks of arctic air in the winter.”
The weather station located at the bottom of the sink took the -35F (-37.2C) reading at approximately 6:15AM on Monday morning, Oct 28 — beating-out the previous record low of -33F (-36.1C) set way back in 1917 (just after weak solar cycle 14, which was similar to the cycle we’ve just experienced, 24).
Forgive me but I’d like to type it again, the Lower-48 just broke it’s coldest-ever temperature record for the month of October. And in addition, and perhaps even more astonishingly, the record may not even last that long — another all-time low mark is expected to be reached overnight Wednesday.
Brutal Arctic air will continue to be funneled southwards from Canada by a dominant meridional (wavy) jet stream flow, which itself is associated with historically low solar activity.
“That dip in the jet stream will slowly migrate eastward late in the week taking the colder air with it,” reports the Weather Channel.
In neighboring Colorado, record-breaking cold is forecast Tuesday and Wednesday, with the front expected to expand eastward, hitting the Great Plains on Wednesday, the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys on Thursday, and the East Coast late Friday and into Saturday, according to the NSW — record cold and snow are predicted throughout the vast region.
GFS TEMP ANOMALY (C) OCT 28 to NOV 4
Observations reveal the lower-latitudes are COOLING, and cooling fast.
Yes, far-northern regions like Alaska and the Arctic may-well be warming ‘slightly’ (seen again by those lingering reds and pinks in the above weather map) but quite frankly who cares, no one lives up there, and as NASA succinctly identifies in their Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map below — some regions of the planet actually warm during periods of global cooling:
And for those concerned by a little Arctic sea ice melt, and the consequences for sea levels, don’t be so ridiculous — at least 90% of the planet’s ice is safely locked up in Antarctica which has been growing for as long as we can tell, comfortably offsetting the comparatively tiny losses observed at its northern cousin.
Don’t be fooled by poisonous political ideologies.
The cold times are returning to the lower-latitudes –where us humans reside– in line with historically low solar activity.
Prepare for the COLD — grow your own.
