SUMMER SNOW SLAMS MOUNTAIN STATES, AS GFS DOUBLES-DOWN ON NEXT WEEK’S POTENTIALLY HISTORIC COLD
SEPTEMBER 2, 2020 CAP ALLON

The GFS has been hinting at a potentially historic blast of Arctic cold engulfing the lower-48 beginning Mon, Sept 7 for a while now; and the model has just doubled-down on that forecast.

Latest GFS runs suggest next week could begin with a shiver and a shudder as temperature departures across the majority of the U.S. sink 8C to 18C BELOW the seasonal average.

This could be historic.

Just look at that frigid streak of pink (below) clipping Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, and Kentucky; and completely engulfing Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana:



GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) — Sept 2 [tropicaltidbits.com].

And again, note how well this pattern matches with temp departures during the Maunder Minimum (the last full-blown Grand Solar Minimum)–and not only in the CONUS and Canada, but also in Alaska and the southern tip of Greenland, too:


Temp change between 1780 (a year of normal solar activity) and 1680 (a year within the depths of the Maunder Minimum) — NASA.

Next week’s Arctic blast is set to shift a little south on Wednesday:


GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) — Sept 3 [tropicaltidbits.com].

And will persist Thursday through Sunday, before temperatures closer to the seasonal average prevail for most on Monday.

Wrap-up America.

SUMMER SNOW ALREADY CLIPPING THE MOUNTAIN STATES
Record cold has already been suffered in the west of late, with heavy summer snow settling across the mountain states.


GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) — Aug 31 [tropicaltidbits.com].

The cold front brought freezing temps and summer snow to Wyoming.

The state’s Department of Transportation web cams along WYO 22 over Teton Pass show snow falling Monday afternoon:



Colorado’s highest elevations saw the first snow of the season on Saturday, and more has fallen since. In addition, CBS4 Denver reports that a few Coloradans have also reported snow high up on Trail Ridge Road as well.

And finally, the flakes began flying on the final day of August, with the mountains of western Montana seeing healthy accumulations for the time of year:

In addition to the snow, the National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather alert for freezing conditions on Sunday night into Monday.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING; in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.

Even NASA appears to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

TxGal, my sister who lives up the road from me doesn't have a computer and all she knows about what's going on is what I share with her and what she gets from MSM on TV and what she can occasionally get in on shortwave. She's been saying there's something wrong and everything just "feels" different, for several months now, and just lately we feel that things are coming to a head one way or another.....and soon.

Yesterday, (or maybe first thing this morning?) I read a Michael Snyder article, I think it was, where he mentioned that many, many people are feeling this, that something is just somehow wrong.

Life = Synergy of Spirit, Air, Water, Earth, Fire
From going back a few pages, and studying the graphs, maps, and history, it's clear to me that there is no escape from this... Technology, what is not "Deep Black," cannot properly address what is coming. Societies and civilization will fail. Most cultures will vanish, along with most of the world's present population.

What to do? Become "super" preppers, join or make intentional communities that are self-sufficient, self-sustaining, and able to survive come what may...

Learn, practice, LIVE Magic.

As the hit's keep a comin', the veil between the realms of Spirit and Form will continue to thin... Magic has always been here, most often ascribed to religious miracles... As time passes, Magic will become stronger, and it's here for all to use...

Blessed Be

Thanks, Martinhouse! I'll get over there and try to post it. It's amazing how many people think something just isn't right, and it doesn't seem to be just the virus or social unrest....it's much more than that.

Overnight we had big storms, tons of rain that we desperately needed, and we're about to get another round...power has been in and out this morning (just went off and thankfully back on a few minutes ago). I'm guessing I'll be losing power off and on as the system trains over us again. We got at least 3" of rain overnight, I found our cattle about 30 mts ago....not in their usual place, but all are well....I need to walk the fence line (30 acres), but not until the storms that are almost on us again pass by. I don't think we have trees down, thankfully, but with livestock we can't leave anything to chance!

Be careful out there when you're walking fences. If any trees are down, I hope they haven't taken any fence with them!

We've gotten several inches of rain over the last few days but I don't know how much since I forgot to empty the gauge the whole while.

Always, and thanks! So far with standing outside and using binoculars, all looks well. Our trees are big so if they're down, there is a noticeable hole that's pretty easy to see. Been there and done that with big trees over fencelines.

And we are getting very, very dark outside.....I'll probably be in and out online, even if the storms are calm, heavy rain on the satellite dish brings down my connection....doesn't even have to be heavy, really.

My sis has satellite TV and heavy rain or even heavy clouds will mess hers up. I got fiberoptic when it was finally put in where I am, and that line is buried all the way from my smaller town and it's been pretty good, even if is Centurylink.

Jerusalem Magnetic Anomaly Repeating in 2024 ? (1031)

5,361 views • Sep 2, 2020

Run time is 9:09

Synopsis provided:

With the South Atlantic Anomaly going to split into two cells, a grand solar minimum intensifying and the biggest polar excursion seen ever, this matches up with the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. So we should be asking with so many match ups geologically at in 2024 as 586 B.C is there a way to protect ourselves from instant destruction ?

“STAGE 4” POWER CUTS ACROSS SOUTH AFRICA AS POLAR COLD CAUSES SPIKE IN DEMAND
SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 CAP ALLON

JOHANNESBURG, Sept 2 (Reuters) — South African state power utility Eskom said it would ramp up power cuts on Wednesday, as cold weather caused a spike in demand after many of its generating units had broken down.

The company, which started implementing “stage 2” power cuts on Tuesday, said that from 3 p.m. Wednesday it would increase them to “stage 4,” requiring up to 4,000 megawatts (MW) of power to be shed from the national grid.

It said 11,300 MW of its roughly 44,000 MW nominal capacity was offline because of unplanned breakdowns, adding to 5,040 MW on planned maintenance.




It has been anomalously cold across much of Southern Africa of late, with temperature departures sinking as much as 16C below the seasonal average:


GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) for Aug 31 [tropicaltidbits.com].


GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) for Sept 2 [tropicaltidbits.com].

Eskom’s struggles to power Africa’s most industrialized nation are one of the main obstacles to economic growth. And, according to the company, the recent cuts will persist throughout the remainder of the week due to the inclement weather.

MEC of Environmental Affairs, Anton Bredell said: “The very cold weather is set to continue and the public is urged to take note of the continued warnings. Disaster responders remain on standby and are responding where emergencies are being reported. The emergency number is 112.”

Disaster Risk Management Center spokesperson Charlotte Powell said on Wednesday: “We are appealing to Capetonians to please exercise extreme caution during the very cold and wet conditions that have set in and are expected to continue over the next few days.”

The COLD TIMES are returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow; and both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

RECORD-EARLY ARCTIC SEA ICE GROWTH
SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 CAP ALLON

According to both the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) and the National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC), Arctic Sea Ice has turned an astonishing corner these past few weeks.

In order to get a true picture of the state of sea ice it is necessary to determine both its extent AND its volume, reads the DMI’s polarportal.dk.

Well, looking at the true picture, DMI data clearly shows Arctic Sea Ice volume (or thickness) began building at a record-early date this year and at a record-pace, too. And while the 2020 season was a little on the low side nothing whatsoever out of the ordinary occurred — until now, that is:


[polarportal.dk]

Over the past two weeks we have witnessed the earliest uptick in ice building for quite some time. The melt ended and the ice began building in the third week of August, taking with it the apocalyptic prophesies of many a MSM shill.

“This is a historic shift in the Arctic,” says David Mauriello of the ORP.

And after closely tracking the current trend, Mauriello’s prediction is for the Arctic circle to be all-but covered in ice within the next 4-6 weeks.

According to the NSIDC, ice has remained in The Northwest Passage this year despite the decades of dire forecasts, as has the ice in areas north of Alaska within the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas despite NSIDC forecasts from just a few months ago.

In addition, and according to the agency’s report dated Sept 2, “the rate [of sea ice loss] has slowed with the onset of autumn in the Arctic” — but what an obfuscating understatement that is: 1) the rate of loss hasn’t only slowed, it has reversed to record-early gains; and 2) the 1981-2010 avg. minimum date isn’t until Sept 15, meaning the ice should still be melting for another two weeks.

Furthermore, and also buried in the report is the revelation that this year’s minimum Arctic sea ice extent fell 360,000 km2 short of 2012’s record low.

The doomsday projections made over the past decade+ have shown no signs of materializing. Late summer Arctic sea ice –the most closely watched measure of the state of the northern pole– has been incredibly stable over the past few decades, and is now showing signs of GROWTH. According to the alarmists, the Arctic should be ice free by now — but those hysterical numpties fell into the trap of applying an idiotic polynomial curve extrapolation into the future, and they’ve been left with serious egg on their faces (retractions still pending…).

“This is going to be a winter to remember,” concludes Mauriello.

The COLD TIMES are returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

True that it's not directly related to the GSM, but it sure shows how vital it is that we grow our own food, which is hugely related, because of all the difficulties that the GSM is already causing for our growing efforts.

That's more than related enough for me!

Plus it was full of interesting information, some of which I hadn't heard before. I'll be listening to this one again, maybe even twice more.

A WARNING FROM HISTORY: THE CARRINGTON EVENT WAS NOT UNIQUE — BY DR TONY PHILLIPS
SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 CAP ALLON

Dr. Tony Phillips is a professional astronomer and science writer, best known for his authorship of the always excellent spaceweather.com. Below is a shortened version of his article from Sept 1, 2020 entitled: A WARNING FROM HISTORY–THE CARRINGTON EVENT WAS NOT UNIQUE.

On Sept. 1st, 1859, the most ferocious solar storm in recorded history engulfed our planet. It was “the Carrington Event,” named after British scientist Richard Carrington, who witnessed the flare that started it. The storm rocked Earth’s magnetic field, sparked auroras over Cuba, the Bahamas and Hawaii, set fire to telegraph stations, and wrote itself into history books as the Biggest. Solar. Storm. Ever.

But, sometimes, what you read in history books is wrong.

“The Carrington Event was not unique,” says Hisashi Hayakawa of Japan’s Nagoya University, whose recent study of solar storms has uncovered other events of comparable intensity. “While the Carrington Event has long been considered a once-in-a-century catastrophe, historical observations warn us that this may be something that occurs much more frequently.”



Drawings of the Carrington sunspot by Richard Carrington on Sept. 1, 1859, and (inset) Heinrich Schwabe on Aug. 27, 1859. [Ref]

Many previous studies of solar superstorms leaned heavily on Western Hemisphere accounts, omitting data from the Eastern Hemisphere. A good example is the great storm of mid-September 1770, when extremely bright red auroras blanketed Japan and parts of China. Captain Cook himself saw the display from near Timor Island, south of Indonesia.

Hayakawa and colleagues recently found drawings of the instigating sunspot, and it is twice the size of the Carrington sunspot group — paintings, dairy entries, and other newfound records, especially from China, depict some of the lowest-latitude auroras ever, spread over a period of 9 days.



An eyewitness sketch of red auroras over Japan in mid-September 1770. [Ref]

“We conclude that the 1770 magnetic storm was comparable to the Carrington Event, at least in terms of auroral visibility,” wrote Hayakawa and colleagues in a 2017 Astrophysical Journal Letter. Moreover, “the duration of the storm activity was much longer than usual.”

Hayakawa’s team has delved into the history of other storms as well, examining Japanese diaries, Chinese and Korean government records, archives of the Russian Central Observatory, and log-books from ships at sea–all helping to form a more complete picture of events.

They found that superstorms in February 1872 and May 1921 were also comparable to the Carrington Event, with similar magnetic amplitudes and widespread auroras: “This is likely happening much more often than previously thought,” says Hayakawa.



Chinese report of a giant naked-eye sunspot group on February 9, 1872. [Ref]

We are overdue for another Carrington Event.

In fact, we likely just missed one.

In July 2012, NASA and European spacecraft watched an extreme solar storm erupt from the sun and narrowly miss Earth: “If it had hit,” announced Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado; “we would still be picking up the pieces.”

A modern-day Carrington Event would cause widespread power outages along with disruptions to navigation, air travel, banking, and all forms of digital communication. One is coming, and will most-likely coincide with the Sun’s ramp-up into Solar Cycle 25 — because while most solar physicists are calling for SC25 to be historically weak, during the cycle’s build towards its maximum –expected mid-2025– the release of violent solar flares and powerful coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is still possible.

Furthermore, and in a deeply unfortunate ‘double-whammy’, our planet’s magnetic field is waning rapidly and has been doing so since 1850. Earth’s magnetosphere is our protection against space weather, and in line with the coming magnetic excursion/reversal/pole shift (coupled with an intensifying GSM) this rapid waning has increased ten-fold over recent years:

View: https://youtu.be/rxo6L255Pp0


The year 2023 is the current front-runner for the next Carrington Event: activity on the Sun should be sufficiently-firing by that point and will coincide with our shield (magnetic field) being further depleted.

However, forecasts are forecasts and only time will tell.

One thing is more certain, however — as Dr Phillips concludes:

“History books, let the re-write begin”.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING; in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow; and both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

herein CO mountains, the hummingbirds are gone now, a good month earlier than normal. we are expecting an arctic blast around mon night/tues, lows in the high 20s- low 30s for a few nights and snow. we are at 8000ft so it looks like we might get a few inches from this. that will kill off the garde so we are picking and canning whatever we can grab.

gotta clean the stove pipe and bring wood in this weekend, we will be burning wood a good month earlier than normal. i thank God for blessing us with free extra wood for this year, i think were gonna need it.

not too many porch nights left

i was thinking today--we have all sorts of weather sites and programs to alert us to incoming---what do we do when we dont have this tech to warn us of some snap freeze or incoming freak storm ?

Record Cold in France – Coldest August 30 on record for the 3rd time in 9 years
September 3, 2020 by Robert

“France Breaks Monthly Cold Record,” says the headline on meteo.bzh. However, if I’m reading the actual article correctly, I think it was a daily record rather than a monthly record.

Even so, it still broke the August 30 cold record for the third time in 9 years.

Is this the beginning of a trend in Brest-Guipavas?

Here’s the Google translation of the article:

“A monthly cold record has just been broken in Brest-Guipavas in Northwest France, where a minimum temperature of 5.8 ° C (42.4F) was recorded.” The previous record dated from August 30, 2018 with 6.4 ° C, which beat that of August 30, 2011 when it had been 6.6 ° C.

“The station is located at Brest-Guipavas airport.”

Le record mensuel de froid vient de tomber à Brest !

Meanwhile, the UK just suffered-through one of it coldest August Bank Holiday weekends ever recorded, the Alps and Pyrenees recently received heavy summer snow.

50-DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AND RECORD SEPTEMBER SNOW — MAINSTREAM MEDIA LABELS IT A “COOL DOWN”
SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 CAP ALLON

The models may-well be overdoing it, but what the GFS is currently kicking-out for Central and Mountain regions next week is truly astounding.

Latest GFS runs are showing a powerful early-September snowstorm dropping south from NW Canada on Monday.

The snow is forecast to rip through the mountain states, and by Wednesday morning Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado could be dealing with the aftermath of some record-busting accumulations, with the surrounding states of Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah, and Idaho also receiving a rare early-season dusting:



GFS Total Snowfall (inches) Sept 4 – Sept 9 [tropicaltidbits.com].

According to the NWS, Sunday could touch 97 degrees in Northern Colorado, then by Tuesday, the low will be 32 degrees — that’s a 65F swing! and serves as yet another example of the intensifying swings-between-extremes brought about by the historically low solar activity we’re currently receiving.



Low solar activity is weakening the jet stream, reverting its usual tight ZONAL flow to more of a wavy MERIDIONAL one: this FULLY explains why some northern latitudes (such as Western Canada/Alaska) have been experiencing pockets of anomalous heat of late while the lower-latitudes (CONUS) have been dealing with “blobs” of record cold:



Western Canada’s frigid temps haven’t simply up and vanished, nor have they been magically heated by CO2 (as the MSM would have you believe) — no, they have merely been diverted south on the back of a wavy MERIDIONAL jet stream flow; a phenomenon long-predicted by those studying the Sun, and one forecast to intensify as the Grand Solar Minimum continues its deepening.

And, depending on which side of the jet stream you’re on, this setup can also deliver spells of unseasonably hot weather as tropical warmth is diverted north. Overall, however, the upshot is a cooling planet (particularly across the mid-latitudes: influx of CRs etc.–see below for more): and this is demonstrated by the temperature trend witnessed across North America since 2015.

Using the same data tool NOAA cites in a recent report (Jan, 2020) as well as the same 5-year time-frame, it is revealed that temps in North America declined at a rate of 2.03C per decade between 2015-2019. This is a monster drop in temps, one 29 times Earth’s official average rate of increase since 1880 according to the NOAA report: “The global annual temperature has increased at an avg. rate of 0.07C (0.13F) per decade since 1880.”



North America, 2.03C decline

Don’t fall for bogus political agendas.

Don’t be a plastic bag waving puppet of the elite (all-be-it an unknowing one).

Apple production drops by 50 percent, farmers at verge of bankruptcy in Jammu and Kashmir

Firdous Hassan
The Kashmir Monitor
Fri, 04 Sep 2020 11:57 UTC

Apples

Forty-two-year-old travel agent Mumtaz Ahmad had invested his savings in the horticulture sector hoping to make up for the losses suffered in the tourism business for the last one year.

Despite buying costly pesticides and employing highly skilled laborers to upkeep his apple orchards, he is struggling to reach a breakeven point as the inclement weather and disease coupled have hit the horticulture sector badly

"This year, the scab has hit the apple crop. Even the production, which was expected to reach an all-time high has halved now. This is going to be the worst year for apple growers," he said.

For the second year in a row, farmers are staring at huge losses given the disease and drop in production due to substandard pesticides.

After tourism failure, people had pinned hopes on horticulture and agriculture. However, the horticulture sector too has failed this year and with the result, the growers are on the verge of bankruptcy.

"Horticulture is in doldrums and growers have gone bankrupt because of last year's lockdown. The annual production has almost halved. Of the remaining 50 percent, the 'C' grade apple is almost 30 percent," President North Kashmir Apple Growers Association, Fayaz Ahmad Malik told The Kashmir Monitor.

Horticulture is the backbone of Jammu and Kashmir's economy. It contributes about 8 percent to the GDP of Jammu and Kashmir. Official figures reveal that seven lakh families are directly or indirectly involved and dependent on the horticulture industry.

At Asia's biggest Fruit Mandi in Sopore, only 200 trucks loaded with apple and pears leave for outside state markets against last year's 300 trucks per day.

"We would get a good number of dealers from Bangladesh and other states last year. This year, they have given Mandi amiss. Due to the lockdown, spurious pesticides flooded the valley markets which failed to control scab," said Malik.

Parmipora Fruit Mandi Srinagar too is witnessing a slump. The export of apples has declined by more than 300 percent this year so far.

"Against 400 trucks, only 150 leave for New Delhi and Amritsar. Last year's losses have immensely hit the dealers who couldn't buy more apples this season. The flow of pears to this market was almost 20 percent less compared to the previous year," said Bashir Ahmad Basheer, President Parimpora Fruit Mandi.

Last night, a special type of aurora appeared over Finland. It was a "corona"--a form of Northern Lights that rains down from directly overhead. Rayann Elzein happened to be looking straight up when the outbreak occurred.

"This corona 'exploded' overhead and continued blinking and displaying fast needles for several minutes!" says Elzein. "What a fantastic and unexpected night up here in Utsjoki!"

The display coincided with a sudden negative dip in BsubZ. In other words, a crack opened in Earth's polar magnetic field. Solar wind poured in to fuel the display.

More coronas are in the offing. During weeks around equinoxes, cracks in Earth's magnetic field become common--a phenomenon known as the Russell-McPherron effect. With the northern autumnal equinox less than three weeks away, the space weather forecast calls for geomagnetic rain.

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Sunday and Tuesday have been declared First Alert Weather Days as we expect some extreme temperature swings, from near 100 degree weather to near record lows and strong winds.
Intense heat will build back into the region this weekend, with highs climbing into the middle and upper 90s on Saturday. We will continue to heat up on Sunday, with the potential for some of the hottest weather we have seen this year. There is a strong possibility that temperatures reach or even top 100 degrees around the metro, and much of eastern Nebraska. There is a little good news, the humidity will not be much of a problem to the heat index will only add a degree or two to the feels like temperature.

Monday will be a bit of a transition day with increase clouds and slightly lower temperatures. Highs likely still reach the upper 80s to around 90. A very strong cold front will push through the area late Monday night bringing a rush of strong north winds and quickly dropping temperatures. Tuesday’s high temperature may occur near Midnight, with dropping temperatures for much of the day. Temperatures may reach the lower 50s, or even 40s during the late morning and early afternoon. Strong north wind gusts of 35 to 45mph will be possible, producing wind chills in the 35 to 45 degree range. The rush of cold air will also come with on and off rain showers through the day Tuesday, making for a very uncomfortable day.

Temp swings are not really "uncommon" in Colorado, but next weeks will be a doozy! We're supposed to be in the high 90's on Monday (glad we planned the BBQ for that day) and down to 40 on Tuesday with snow!

Going to rescue what I can out of the garden on Sunday/Monday, cover some of the plants, bring in some firewood and shut the sprinkler system off.

Trees are already turning, the cucumbers and zucchini are done for the year. Not sure if a freeze will affect the spaghetti squash but I think I'll pick everything that's ready as it is dying back as well.

The old saying if you don't like the weather, wait a day, it will change, really applies this year.

Re, the Carrington event, and our vulnerable state due to a weak magnetic shield, one could suggest that underground shelters aren't just for nukes anymore.

An old Ben Davidson video advises people to locate their nearby caves. Lots of ancient underground tunneling all over the world, and much of it spacious, and nicely finished. People weren't just camping out there. Furthermore, the Hopi creation myth of people emerging out of the ground got me thinking recently that this is how isolated pockets of people survive.

There is an very good book, first hand account of the Holodomor called Execution by Hunger by Miron Dolot. It's grim, but highly recommended reading.

The book is even grimmer when you realize that the ones who perpetrated the Holodomor got by with it. No one is courageous enough to tell the truth so that we might avoid Holodomor 2.0 perpetrated by the same people. Especially the author of this book. One drop of poison in a cup of pure water.

Not much GSM news out there yet this morning. There are, though, many stories continuing to be posted on Sott.net about world-wide flooding, and also now of sea life (generally whales) washing ashore/beaching themselves also around the world. Here's the link to Sott.net:

Blast Of Cold Air To Freeze Central US Next Week

by Tyler Durden
Zero Hedge
Saturday, 09/05/2020 - 09:55

Refinitiv weather analyst Ed Whalen states, in a new report, that big temperature changes are ahead for the central US.
Whalen said parts of the western and central US would see a blast of cold air early next week, for a short period, especially in the Rockies and parts of the Plains. The plunge in temperatures could result in snow for specific areas.
The EC Operational Forecast for the next nine days (Sept. 05-14) daily average two months (F) deviation (with gray freezing line) shows Arctic air will pour into the central and western regions beginning Sept. 08.



Here is Whalen's Sept. agriculture weather report for Central Plains and Midwest regions:

1-5 Day Forecast: A favorable high rainfall pattern is anticipated through early next week across the Central Plains and Midwest U.S., with the highest totals (nearing 50 mm / ~2 in above normal) in the latter. Despite cooler conditions in the Northern U.S. Plains and Southern Canada, temperatures across the core crop regions of North America will be fairly moderate through the next 5 days. This pattern overall will be largely beneficial for corn and soybeans. It is the 6-10 day period which is more notable.
6-10 Day Forecast: A blast of cold air will drop temperatures to around 5-10 °F below normal across the Central U.S. during this period. Frost/freeze risks for corn and soybean regions are not expected, as only areas west of NE/KS are likely to drop below freezing. On that note, there is a possibility for snow across some of the wheat producing areas of Colorado, which could delay plantings down the line. More on precipitation, a swath of heavy rainfall totals associated with the eastern edge of the low pressure trough will range from the Southern Plains through the Midwest during the 6-10 day period. Overall, this cool and wet weather should be very favorable for late developing corn and soybean crops.
10+ Day Forecast: The latest EC extended run from 03 September depicts continued cold weather persisting through September across the vast majority of the Central U.S., coupled with a near normal precipitation pattern. If persistent, the cold weather could begin to raise concerns further for frost/freeze damage to corn/soybeans as well as delays to wheat plantings. - Whalen
The central US heating degree day (HDD) index will spike on Sept. 7, indicating more energy will be needed to heat a building structure as colder weather rolls in. The spike will be short-lived, but the trend in high and low temperatures will be down as summer appears to be winding down.





US-lower 48 HDD is set to rise through mid-Oct. as cooler temperatures imply people will have to turn up their thermostats.






As summer transitions to fall, this is particularly bad for restaurants who have been surviving on serving customers on outdoor patios as public health orders limit indoor capacity. It won't be until Oct./Nov. when temperatures dive further that another wave of eateries will have to shutter operations as patios close.
