September snow blankets parts of 4 US states - up to 17 inches deep

Seventeen inches of snow, 70-degree temperature drops and the earliest snowfall on record were just part of a record September winter blast.

Seventeen inches of snow in Wyoming, the earliest snowfall on record for New Mexico and the earliest flakes in decades for parts of Colorado — these are just a few of the astonishing weather reports coming out of a record-setting September week.

On Wednesday morning, snow was falling over parts of Colorado and 5 million people remained under winter weather alerts across portions of the Northern and Central Rockies. Those in the Denver area woke up to 1 to 4 inches of snow coating trees and grassy surfaces.

A few more inches of snow was possible, mostly at the highest elevations, before the snow was expected to end by afternoon.

Don't let anyone tell you North America's historic shift to September snow is due to 'global warming'

US summer heat and snow
Parts of the U.S. have gone from balmy summer heat to historic cold and snow in less than 24 hours. Below is a rebuttal to the mainstream position that CO2-induced 'Arctic Amplification' is to blame.

Alarmists claim that the Arctic is warming faster than everywhere else, and that this phenomenon is weakening the jet stream. They say the difference in temperature between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes fuels the jet stream, and that a disproportionately warming Arctic is reducing that temperature difference, weakening the winds to favor a wavier flow:

Temperatures plunge by 60 degrees in under 24 hours, bringing snow to Colorado, Montana and Wyoming

SNOW
Summer came to an abrupt halt in parts of the Rocky Mountains on Tuesday as temperatures reaching into the 90s plunged by around 60 degrees in less than 24 hours, with a powerful surge of cold air from Canada unleashing snow and damaging winds in several states.

The roller coaster weather ripped up trees by their roots, piled up snow that shut down parts of the scenic road through Glacier National Park and knocked out power to tens of thousands. But the temperature drop gave some relief to crews fighting wildfires in Colorado and Montana that had ballooned in hot, windy weather and forced people to flee their homes.

Heat and strong winds also hit California and parts of the Pacific Northwest over the holiday weekend, triggering destructive wildfires.

Snow fell in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming, where portions of Interstate 80 closed and forecasters predicted up to a foot in the mountains and temperatures in the teens overnight.

Powerful early snow storm hits parts of Montana on Labor Day

Labor Day has come and gone, and summer is over. At least, that's how it felt in Montana, when a powerful snow storm left its impact on higher elevations.

The storm forced officials to close Beartooth Pass on Monday, due to extreme conditions. Several inches of snow fell in the area, making some roads impassable.

Heavy snow also accumulated in other areas, including in the city of Red Lodge.

"Oh lord, please no": September snow is 'big deal' for farmers - US braces itself for record swing in 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.
Large parts of the United States are bracing for a violent swing in the weather, with a record-busting 16+inches of early-September snow forecast to accumulate.

"It is interesting to be working through record heat to prepare for record cold," said Claudia Ferrell, owner of Berry Patch Farms in Brighton, CO. But, as many solar physicists have long-been warning, next week's forecast serves as just another example of the swings-between-extremes brought on 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 forcing FULLY explains why some northern latitudes (such as Western Canada/Alaska) are experiencing pockets of anomalous heat while the mid-latitudes (CONUS) are dealing with "blobs" of record cold — for more on the science click the links below:

Record heat expected Labor Day weekend in western US

Record-breaking heat is expected in the West during the holiday weekend, including Los Angeles, where the power grid could be put to the test.

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.

There are already several excessive heat warnings and advisories, including a warning for Los Angeles and advisory for San Francisco throughout the 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.
