Already Thursday, record highs were tied in Palmdale, California, at 106 degrees and in Portland, Oregon, at 95 degrees, but this is just the beginning, especially for southern California and the Southwest.

Some areas could see the hottest temperatures of the year so far in southern California during Labor Day weekend.

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?

The cold snap across much of Europe has brought some dustings of snow. It may only be the end of August, but it's a sign that winter is on its way.

Val d-Isere reports snow falling at 2,500m and above with 5cm at 2,600m.

As solar activity decreases cosmic rays increase, leading to more floods and out of season atmospheric events. This video describes events and causes for what I feel is earth entering a mega flood stage from here through 2035.

Summer snowfall in Montana

A red flag warning has been issued for most of Montana east of the Continental Divide for Tuesday and Wednesday.

The flakes were flying on the final day of August. The mountains of western Montana above about 7000 feet had a light accumulation. Light snow and light rain fell on some of the wildfires as well. But in typical Montana fashion, a huge weather swing is about to happen. One day after snow falls in the state, there will be very dangerous fire weather conditions because of wind, low humidity and warm temperatures.

Snow fell for the first time this season in Colorado on Saturday, and there’s more on the way. This picture was taken on Saturday, August 29th.
Colorado's highest elevations saw the first snow of the 'fall', and more may be on the way.

Even though we'll creep back up into the 90s by Labor Day weekend, we're enjoying the cold front that's starting off the week with high temps in the 70s. While fall isn't quite here just yet, for Colorado's highest peaks, the first dusting of snow has arrived.

On Saturday, August 29, Aspen Snowmass shared that it had its first snow on the high peaks. According to CBS4 Denver, closer to us in Northern Colorado, 'A few Coloradans have also reported snow high up on Trail Ridge Road as well.'


Cold front brings August snow to Wyoming, freeze warning issued

A cold front has brought some late summer snow to Wyoming.

Wyoming Department of Transportation web cameras along WYO 22 over Teton Pass show snow falling on Monday afternoon with some accumulation along the side of the highway.

The National Weather Service in Riverton says that below freezing temperatures are forecast across much of the state Monday.

Professor Valentina Zharkova: "We entered the 'modern' Grand Solar Minimum on June 8, 2020"

Grand Solar Minimum snow

A new editorial paper has landed from professor Valentina Zharkova, entitled: "Modern Grand Solar Minimum will Lead to Terrestrial Cooling". Published on August 4, 2020, Zharkova's latest analysis suggests that June 8, 2020 was the date on which we entered the Modern (Eddy) Grand Solar Minimum.

The opening paragraph reads:

"In this editorial I will demonstrate with newly discovered solar activity proxy-magnetic field that the Sun has entered into the modern Grand Solar Minimum (2020-2053) that will lead to a significant reduction of solar magnetic field and activity like during Maunder minimum leading to noticeable reduction of terrestrial temperature."

Another passage states:

"Currently, the Sun has completed solar cycle 24 - the weakest cycle of the past 100+ years - and in 2020, has started cycle 25. During the periods of low solar activity, such as the modern grand solar minimum, the Sun will often be devoid of sunspots. This is what is observed now at the start of this minimum, because in 2020 the Sun has seen, in total, 115 spotless days (or 78%), meaning 2020 is on track to surpass the space-age record of 281 spotless days (or 77%) observed in 2019. However, the cycle 25 start is still slow in firing active regions and flares, so with every extra day/week/month that passes, the null in solar activity is extended marking a start of grand solar minimum."
