Seems like summer just ended. But already ground frost and wintry snow are gripping large parts of Europe.
The following chart shows the situation right now at 8 p.m. CET.

At Facebook Severe Weather Europe posted photos taken today in Romania, in Southeast Europe. At 600 meters elevation snow has blanketed the ground.

This of course is in stark contradiction to the earlier projections of snow would be a thing of the past. WetterOnline here also reports of snow in Romania with photos. Again this only reinforces the trend that Europe has been cooling over the past 2 decades.
The cold is expected to intensify over the next few days with surface frost spreading widely across much of Central Europe.
I guess I’m going to have to give up on palm trees making it up here.

Heavy snow mid week for germany. Don’t know how unusual that is.
With experts predicting winters without snow and frost, I’d say it’s very unusual. But if you think that AGW is mostly nonsense, then it is not that unusual.
Anything before December is unusual, anything before November is extremely unusual. (in low-lying lands in Germany)
Given that we should be on our way to hothouse Earth – it is IMPOSSIBLE!
The snow has been caused by warm air from the melting tundra being picked up by the polar gyre and transported south to fall as snow. It’s worse than we thought. Eny ful no that.
Then I suggest you look at a weather map and tempreture chart for arctic regions since the begining of September – the start of the 6 months of winter above 70 lat. with tempretures at or below zero, not much melting there I submit. Currently there is a meridonial jetstream pushing cool wet weather over the top of Norway and down into Central Europe. An NAO winter has already started.
Stop believing lies and lying …thanks!
Hey, he even added ” It’s worse than we thought.” and you still don’t get the sarcasm?
I would like to show you that snowfalls are now just a thing of the past, but the Independent has consigned Charles Onians and Dr Viner to the dustbin of censored history… I wonder why?
The idiots. That was their most-clicked single page. A goldmine, and they shut it down.
Pops, here you go:
rewriting history is not an easy job nowadays.
Thank you, Pethefin.
“I guess I’m going to have to give up on palm trees making it up here.”
I’ll happily invite you to come for a summer if you’ll agree to dispose of the palm fronds which fall with regular monotony from my palms.
Unlike leaves these monstrosities can be 6 metres long weighing up to 20 kg each – you can’t just rake ’em up.
No-one in their right mind would plant palm trees in an urban environment if they knew the perpetual trouble they are to maintain – and especially not coconut palms which have the potential to kill.
Be glad you don’t have them.
Can’t you sell the fronds as some kind of hi falutin carbon neutral fuel?
To the last surviving German eco-leftards, via mail? Maybe gotta turn them into pellets first.
What were Al Gore’s famous words in “An Inconvenient Truth”?
Oh yes – “… when there is more carbon dioxide, the temperature gets warmer”.
Well, there certainly is more carbon dioxide … there’s no dispute about that! So try telling those people, who are experiencing ground frost and wintery snow currently gripping large parts of Europe, that the temperature is actually getting warmer from all that extra carbon dioxide!!!
[…] si sia appena conclusa. Tuttavia il gelo invernale è già arrivato, e la neve stringe gran parte dell’Europa. Le zone del Maine settentrionale hanno già visto il loro primo periodo di precipitazioni […]
