Let’s talk about global warming… Or better said GLOBAL COOLING! A brutal cold wave is currently sweeping across Europe, bringing tons of SNOW, powerful WINDS triggering widespread POWER OUTAGES and devastating several countries in Europe and Scandinavia with lows that haven’t been seen since 1980 in Sweden.

Sweden has had the lowest temperature in November since 1980 with a polar wave sweeping Western Europe. Same in Ivalo, Finnish Lapland, where thermometer were at -22ºC as well as in Norway.

On the Finnmark plateau between Kautokeino and Karasjok, Sweden, temperatures dropped to -35°C on Sunday. The forecast for next week shows a temperature anomaly for the last days of November at 10°C below the 1961-1990 reference period, reports the Swedish Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology.

Sweden’s coldest spot Nikkaluokta, near Gällivare in Norrbotten, where this Sunday’s low was -37.4°C, the lowest in the country in November since 1980.

The national record for November cold is -43°C for the year of 1890.

Meanwhile, the anomalous Jet Stream over Europe during the morning hours of 29/11 led to an extreme temperature difference of 67˚C between northern Sweden and southern Greece where -36˚C and 31˚C where recorded respectively.

The cold climate even reaches the coast of the far north of Norway, where the Arctic waters are kept ice-free due to the warm sea current of the Gulf. It was only -31.0°C at Karasjok – Markannjarga in Norway thursday. This is the fifth year since the weather station was established in 2004 that the temperature fells below -30°C in November. Lowest -35,0°C in 2010.

Further east in the Russian Arctic, about 20 ships have been trapped in thick sea-ice for several weeks Northern Sea Route and freed only recently by two strong ice-breakers.

The current freeze comes in sharp contrast to last fall, when meteorologists reported the warmest months of October and early November, averaging 6.7°C higher than normal across the Arctic. Meanwhile, snow fell over all Europe this week.

Extreme cold and snow in the UK after Arwen

In the UK, the Met Office warns that Monday’s dawn could be the coldest in a decade in November.

The cold also punished the United Kingdom. At least three people have died in the last few hours due to the Storm Arwen that came with blizzards and high winds, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without electricity.

The British weather agency put much of the country on red alert on Friday night due to the wind. Weather services advise people to travel only in case of need. Snow-covered Brun Valley Forest Park in Burnley, North West England this Sunday as the region still recovers from the effects of Storm Arwen.

“Storm Arwen” brought in gusts of 160 km/h on Friday night, before weakening and heading towards continental Europe.

Heavy snow forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Premier League football match between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur in North West England, and the heavy gale wreaked havoc on road and rail transport across the UK.

The extreme wind with hurricane force felled many trees. In Scotland, several train lines were interrupted between Edinburgh, Glasgow and other cities due to strong winds. Several roads were closed.

The sea grew huge on the coast with giant waves crashing against the rocks and coastal cliffs. About 120 trucks were “stuck by snow” on a highway in northern England, police announced.

Northern Powergrid electricity company estimates that strong winds have left some 55,000 customers in the North of England, especially in Northumberland county, without power.

Energy prices soar to record

Extreme freeze over northern Scandinavia causes energy prices to soar to a record high. The main reason is high consumption combined with ice formation on rivers with hydropower plants in northern Sweden. The northern regions of Norway and Sweden are closely linked together in the same electricity grid.

Low production in Sweden pushes prices up, also in northernmost Noway. On Sunday, a kWh came with a price-tag of 1,92 kroner/kWh (€0,19/kWh) on the spot market, the highest cost for electricity inside the Arctic Circle since 2010. Current prices are up to 10 times higher compared to the average daily over the three first weeks of November.

On Monday afternoon, spot prices that retailers use to purchase electricity from the wholesale market will climb even further to 3 kroner/kWh. Such a price level has never been seen before in northern Norway. [TBO, MetSul]

  1. Not surprising.. The Antarctic interior recorded its coldest April-to-September this year since records began in 1957. According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC), the average temperature at the US Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station was minus 60.9ºC for the six months. It was also the station’s second coldest winter (June, July and August) on record, with an average seasonal temperature of minus 62.9ºC. This was an extraordinary 3.4ºC below the long-term average (1881-2010) for winter. The warmist wankers will tell this caused by climate change.

  2. The weather patterns passing over Alberta have lost all its moisture and heat. Cold and dry is what it is when it meets the Gulf Stream. It cools the air and water off while picking up as much moisture as possible. That moisture is lost as soon as the air rises a bit and drops a few degrees in temp. So far the pattern is repeated every week and the cold spells slowly increasing in length as it crosses the country.

  3. Been burning logs. About one log per hour. I can heat my entire house from 60° at 0600hrs, to 71° at 0730hrs. Faster if I bake some potatoes at the same time. I’m at 79° now at 1925hrs.
    Should be 26° outside around 0600hrs. No snow yet. Rabbits are thick. One gnawed all the bark around the base of one of my new apple trees. Didn’t have any protection around that tree, Doh.
    I’m supposed to be hunting these varmints down, but I was leaving them for the owls. Now, I have a bigger hunt ahead I guess.
    Damn near stepped on one by a bush. They’re thick. Must have been breeding alot since we had plenty of rain. Last week, I thought I had six running loose inside my 3 acre fenced zone. Looks more like nine or ten now. I’ve probably lost $1,200 in trees to them over the years. Very destructive little bastards.

  4. FSS in YouTube please you are behind your forecast and i predicted everything you saying months before.. Please i Mohamed invite you come here read and get top notch info
    and be current with your broadcast. Mike Morales uses Strange Sounds, Jeff Rense and many web site. Please come here read Intel we give you as a whole.

  5. Meanwhile the Ozarks is having 60 to 70 Degree temperatures this week. Enjoying it while we can. You know it won’t last. And then there’s the non-stop spraying. They finally admitted they were doing it and said they were trying to cool the planet down wonder if they’ll take credit for what’s currently happening.
    Everyone should have been preparing for the last 2 years if not before. And if you still have been complacent, time is running out. Crops will likely fail worldwide this coming year due to a volcanic winter. They’ve happened even in the recent past! Those who don’t know history will die of ignorance.

      Yep and when the lemmings realize they have been lied to they will blame … US!
      They are that ignorant!!!
