Uh oh … Signs of an unusually cold winter coming our way

Uh oh… Signs of an unusually cold winter coming our way (Ice Age Now, Oct 18, 2014):

“The snow in Siberia is piling up, and if it keeps coming, people in New York may have to bundle up this winter,” says Bloomberg.

There’s a theory that the amount of snow covering Eurasia in October is an indication of how much icy air will sweep down from the Arctic in December and January, pouring over parts of North America, Europe and East Asia.

Meteorologist: Winter Arrives Early In Alaska – Snow For All Canadian Provinces

Winter Arrives Early in Alaska, says meteorologist (Ice Age Now, Oct 7, 2014):

Snow for all Canadian Provinces


“With up to 6 ft. of snow on tap for Alaska in the coming week… …one can only marvel at a state that reaches -80 deg. F in the winter, grows pumpkins that weigh more than a Smart Car, and was purchased from Russia for only $7.2 million,” writes Dr. Roy W. Spencer. “I’ll bet Putin is still pi$$ed.”

Newsminer.com is calling today’s event a “winter storm”…but isn’t it still early Fall?

“As winter slowly sinks southward, all of the Canadian provinces can also expect some snow in the coming week.

(I don’t think snow in Alaska in early October is all that unusual. However, it’s a far cry from the “we’re-all-going-to-roast” scenario, isn’t it?)

This came from Dr. Roy W. Spencer’s website:

Storm warning – Rain expected to change to snow in Kyrgyzstan on October 8 and 9 in the Chu and Talas valleys, and foothill and mountainous areas, it is reported by Kyrgyzhydromet.
