German site wetter.net here reports on cold gripping Turkey and the Turkish Riviera, which is typically a place tourists like to go to for warmth and sunshine.
These locations are far away from the Arctic, and are certainly a result of weather driven by patterns taking place at the middle latitudes, and have nothing to do with Arctic sea ice in September. The claim that September Arctic sea ice is controlling December weather in Turkey and the Middle East is absurdity of grotesque dimensions.
That aside, wetter.net writes:
Right now it’s cracking cold especially in the middle of Turkey. Permanent frost has taken hold even down at the lower elevations. Already on Tuesday and Wednesday the residents of Istanbul had to deal with lots of snow. Now foremost it has gotten cold just north of the Turkish Riviera. Also in the generally warm holiday area of Antalya local residents and tourists have had to settle with top temperatures of 8°C and lows near the freezing point. At the capital of Ankara, which is situated almost 1000 meters above sea level, permanent frost is the forecast. Minus 3°C during the day on Thursday and minus 14 at night.”
Website Ice Age Now also reports on the cold in Turkey. 900 roads had to be closed, thus paralyzing large regions.
Heavy snowfall in Black Sea region, central Anatolia and Eastern provinces. In the eastern provinces of Van, Bitlis, Mus and Hakkari, 951 village roads were closed on Friday due to heavy snow and blizzards.”
Sicilian Nicosia sees “first snow in years”
Ice Age Now here also reports that Mediterranean Sicily has been hard hit by unusual winter conditions.
As of Dec 13, many areas remain cut off due to the heavy snowfall. The bad weather has also caused power cuts and forced schools to close. […] Last night, Nicosia got its first glimpse of snow in years. Snowfall on Thursday night was reported in the villages of Pera Chorio, Alambra, Larnaca district, Latsia and Dali. […] Tonight, temperatures at the mountains will drop to -5 degrees Celcius.”
This is all because there was some missing sea ice 6000 and more kilometers away 3 months ago, some quacks claim. Snake-oil science in its purest form.
