Winter To Make Early Debut In Central Europe – Snow Forecast To Fall Below 1500 Meters Next Week

High profile, Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann has released his latest weather video:

In the video (German) at the 1:10 mark he says Central Europe will be cooling down considerably at the end of the coming week and that winter weather with snow may be making its way down below 1500 m in the Alps.

Of course in the past such weather was nothing that unusual for the Alps this time of year. But in our age of global warming, snow was supposed to become rare even in the wintertime, let alone early the fall or spring.

Winters are here to stay

One thing can be said with high certainty: snow in September pretty much tells us that winters are going to be around for a very long time, and they aren’t going to disappear like some fortune-telling climate scientists told us. Here are some of their notorious failed winter climate predictions:

Winters with strong frost and lots of snow like we had 20 years ago will cease to exist at our latitudes.” Mojib Latif, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg, 1 April 2000.


Good bye winter. Never again snow?” Spiegel, 1 April 2000.


Spring will begin in January starting in 2030.” Die Welt, 30 Sept 2010.


Ice, snow, and frost will disappear, i.e. milder winters.” Die Welt, 30 Sept 2010

(See many more here)

Having been thoroughly embarrassed by all these false predictions, many of the hysterical global warming scientists are now claiming that the recent spate of cold European winters are actually a sign of global warming.

Over the last couple weeks, there has been a flurry of forecasts of a bitter cold 2013/2014 winter to hit Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe. But Kachelmann dismisses these forecasts, pretty much calling them wild-ass guesses and claiming no one can make useful seasonal forecasts.

Other meteorologists, however, like Joe Bastardi and Dominik Jung, believe that tendencies one way or the other can be determined, based on historical data and repeating climate cycles that have emerged from the 130 years of data.

I think it’s high time to talk to a few old farmers and see what they think.

Overall, this all reminds me of the story of NASA predicting a cold winter because they had observed Indians stocking up more firewood than usual.

    The american and european models are showing some trully appalling weather for the UK and NW europe next week.

    O/T the ultimate lecture about the Euro crisis by Beatrix von Storch (not related to Hans von Storch AFAIK) of the AfD
    in German unfortunately. She explains the stealthy ways of ECB money creation.
    Noteworthy: The last three agreements about help packages for PIIGS came NOT about through the CDU-FDP coalition because of defectors amongst the FDP and CDU. But through SPD and CDU parliament members forming a de facto pro Euro coalition.
    Important for FDP voters: ALL the FDP MP’s who defected have been stricken off the list for re-election! They will NOT be in the next FDP faction!
    If you want Euroskeptic voices in the parliament you *must* vote AfD. A purge has happened within the FDP! (Beatrix von Storch knows this because she organizes an ongoing e-mail campaign to the parliament members and got feedback.)

      Oh and maybe keep a little bit of the barbaric relic around; the shiny yellowish stuff. She fully expects an inflationary blowup.

    Way out west in Northern California, the small animals are very busy putting up their winter supplies. The acorns are early and trees are showing a change already. Although the weather has remained to the warm side, the nights are starting to cool down, which is nice. The Farmer,s Alamanac says this winter will be a cold winter. We will soon find out.

      Same in Michigan. The acorns are falling like hailstones on the roof. The mornings have turned cool by 20 degrees in the last week. The squirrels are so fat they can’t run anymore, and are making nests for the winter. The robins left two weeks ago.

    The return of snow and cold to Europe seems to point to cycles. If it was just a cycle then it should spell the end of the IPCC. Peru has just had a very bitter winter, again.
