Very Rare #June #Snowfall In Kashmir

As the plains of Northern India reeled under the much-documented heat this week, the higher elevations of Kashmir were receiving super-rare June snow, with the lower regions inundated with heavy rains.

The unexpected June snowfall was received at the Sonamarg resort in central Kashmir, over its adjoining higher reaches and also in Drass, Kargil, Zanskar, towns in the Ladakh division, and in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Sikkim.

The nation’s weather department deemed the snowfall a “rare” meteorological event.

“I have never witnessed snow in summer. For me it was a miracle of watching snow in June when the heat wave is continuing in northern parts of the India,’’ said Rajesh Kumar, a tourist from Rajasthan.

Jalal Jeelani, an environmentalist and renowned film maker on environmental issues said this was no cause for celebration: “For us it is a warning and sign of the global warming. The snowfall is dangerous to our horticulture and agriculture sector. We should ponder why this is happening in our region.’’

That’s right, snowfall is now a sign of global warming, too.

There’s no illogic off limits.

And while higher elevations received rare (?warm?) snow, plains of the Valley saw heavy rainfall overnight which triggered flash floods in several areas and also sharply increased the level of water bodies.

The catchments of south and north Kashmir received more than 2 inches (50 mm) of rain in the past 24 hours, according to the area’s Irrigation and Flood Control department.

“50 mm plus rainfall in a catchment results in a flood-like situation in the tributary. The people residing along the tributaries in south and north Kashmir are advised to remain alert and not go too close to these tributaries,” the department warned.

The sun is continuing it’s relative shutdown, as it enters it’s next Grand Solar Minimum cycle:

The cold times are returning.

We are now enduring the #coldest millennium in 10,000 years #Anthropogenic Global Warming

We are now enduring the coldest millennium in 10,000 years

Nonetheless, Climate alarmists promoting their views have converted the slight and truly beneficial warming at the end of the 20th century to a Modern high point “Great Man-made Global Warming Catastrophe”.

According to ice core records, the last millennium 1000AD – 2000AD has been the coldest millennium of our current Holocene interglacial. This point is more fully illustrated with ice core records on a millennial basis back to the Eemian period here: – Ed Hoskins

Long-term weather forecast: ‘RECORD COLD’ temperatures on way as SOLAR MINIMUM begins

In 2018, the Sun has been without sunspots for 190 – or 60 percent – of days, indicating the solar maximum could be over. And NASA scientists warn that the switch from maximum to minimum has been so extreme that Earth’s atmosphere could experience “record cold”. The Sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum.
 
During a solar maximum, the Sun gives off more heat and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in magnetic waves.
 
Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center told CBN: “We see a cooling trend.
 
“High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy.
“If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold.
 
“The thermosphere always cools off during Solar Minimum. It’s one of the most important ways the solar cycle affects our planet.”
NASA’s states on its website: “All weather on Earth, from the surface of the planet out into space, begins with the Sun.
 
“Space weather and terrestrial weather (the weather we feel at the surface) are influenced by the small changes the Sun undergoes during its solar cycle.”
 
The space agency adds on its Thermosphere Climate Index (TCI) “a weather metric that tells us how the top of Earth’s atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) is responding to solar activity” that “the top of Earth’s atmosphere is approximately 10 times cooler than it was during the record-setting Solar Max of 1957-58.”
 
The Sun was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020, and if it is heading in early, it will mean a prolonged cold snap.
 
The last time there was a prolonged solar minimum, it led to a ‘mini ice-age’, scientifically known as the Maunder minimum – which lasted for 70 years.
 
The Maunder minimum, which saw seven decades of freezing weather, began in 1645 and lasted through to 1715, and happened when sunspots were exceedingly rare.
 
During this period, temperatures dropped globally by 1.3 degrees celsius leading to shorter seasons and ultimately food shortages.
