As was the case across much of South America, September 2022 was an anomalously cool month.
Paraguay was very cool, in fact, with temperature anomalies here ranging from -1C to a full -2C below the multidecadal norm.
RECORD LOWS LOGGED AT BISMARK AND PARKERSBURG
Despite the mainstream’s “Terrifying Terra Firma Broiling” rhetoric, the U.S. is still managing to bust cold records.
A record low temperature of 17F (-8.3C) was recently noted at Bismarck Airport, ND — tying the same reading for the date set back in 1976 (solar minimum of weak cycle 20).
A fresh record was also set at Parkersburg, WV, on Oct 11 — the second straight day that the city set or tied a new record low. After matching the previous benchmark of 32F (0C) on Oct 10, the following morning’s low of 33F (0.56C) broke the old record of 34F (1.1C) set back in 1945 (solar minimum of cycle 17).
A far frostier Arctic front is now threatening to grip the eastern half of the U.S. over the weekend and into next week. As discussed yesterday, this descending polar cold will likely drive the mercury to record-low levels, and also deliver early-season snow to many states:

Starting back in late-2019, an increasing number of cold weather records have been falling across India.
In Delhi alone, the city suffered its coldest December day in more than a century back in 2019; it registered its chilliest months of October and November in 54 and 71 years, respectively, in 2020; Delhi’s coldest May day in 70 years was logged in 2021, with the following month bringing its lowest June temperature ever; and this year, 2022, Delhi suffered a harsh, persistent winter during which its coldest January and February days in a decade were noted, with nearby locales receiving their first snow since 1958: scenarios that led to the deaths of a record number of homeless people in Delhi — 200 ‘official’ deaths in January alone.
And now, in October, fresh records are falling.
The maximum temperature in Delhi dropped to 23.4C (74.1F) this week, which is more than 10C below the seasonal norm of 33.8C (92.8F). Also, the temperature difference between Friday’s minimum (20.8C/69.4F) and Saturday’s maximum (23.4C/74.1F) was also –at just 2.6C– the smallest temperature range registered in Delhi since 1969.
Over the past weekend, the city also received its second-highest 24-hour rainfall total since 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23).
Delhi is cooling.
As is India as a whole.
Heavy, early-season snow has already clipped the nation’s northern reaches this month.
States such as Uttarakhand have seen key roads blocked. While in Darma Valley, the last outpost near the Chinese border, 4+ feet of snow has settled, with security personnel having to patrol the area “under extreme circumstances.”
13th- These aren’t dire predictions, they are actual events. There’s a huge difference between guessing what might happen and seeing what’s happened. MSM better start reporting events, the predictions didn’t materialize. We are not melting and the plastic bag will not doom mankind. A lack of food might and a cold year might but the plastic bag, nope.
