This is Piers’ one quote in the Daily Express article:

Piers Corbyn, forecaster for WeatherAction, said: “There is a significant change in the weather on the way.

“The jet stream, which has so far remained north over the UK, is about to make a sharp southwards turn allowing an Arctic air to sweep Britain.

“The British Isles will be locked into an Arctic airflow for at least the next five days.”

Piers on the Daily Express ‘Arctic SNOWBOMB’ coverage;

…it’s fair to note two things 1 When Nathan Rao quotes me the actual quotes are in my experience accurate. 2 For the [Over the Top] stories where he might know I dont agree he does not quote me. For example yesterday – Sunday – afternoon there were two stories the first one quoted me and was pretty good, the second one was OTT end of world stuff in which I was not quoted, instead it had quotes from some with whom I prefer not to be quoted! Spin apart, and headlines which are put there by attention seeking sub editors, Nathan Rao who [by the way] is now freelance, has increased interest in weather and understanding of concepts such as jet stream. When you see an Nathan Rao story first skim through it and see who is quoted.

This is what Piers said on his website this weekend:

Important Jan Forecast Update News

In late December an interesting general world JetStream shift westwards by a few hundred miles took place making milder wetter weather in much of B+I and East USA than forecast. This was accompanied (later) by a massive coronal hole in South polar regions of the Sun and tremendous bursts of geomagnetic activity on Earth.

Much of Britain and Ireland was wetter than expected in December and in the original early January Forecast.

This was due specifically to the combined position of the Scandinavia High block at times (which shifted West of expected), the persistence of South winds over Britain & Ireland and quasi-stationary weather fronts dropping rain in the same places. These persistent ‘Long Jet Stream stuck’ situations are a feature of the of the new weather era (Wild-Jet-Stream / Mini-Ice-Age) the world is in, and where they locate to within a hundred miles is of crucial importance.

It appears world weather is now developing faster into this grim new era – which depends on specific confirmed and predictable solar activity developments and lunar modulation of sun-earth connections.  Related to this, what is happening in the stratosphere is now more crucial and that changes some forecast options

On 2016

2016 will be a year of wild and wierd weather. #StormFrank (in WeatherAction TopRed, R5, period 28-31Dec) also known as Piers Corbyn’s #StormPiers2 (The 1st was 28Oct 2013 predicted 6m ahead) hit (details below) as predicted 10weeks ahead. This storm and associated extremes around the world such as a short mild event in the Arctic and extreme blizzards and cold blasts in New Mexico and East Europe are a foretaste of the extremes and contrasts coming in the year ahead!

This is a stunning visualisation of the stratosphere using the GFS model;

  1. A few years ago Piers Corbyn predicted the coldest winter for the UK in more than a hundred years. He was right and the chance of him being right by coincidence is only 1%. So I believe in the 99% chance his SLAT technique is good. But how could this winter become the coldest winter in 58 years? Either it will be the coldest winter in the last five years or it will be the coldest winter in more than a hundred years.

    Heavy snowfall in South-West Iceland. Mon 11 Jan 2016
    Heavy snowfall currently affecting South-West Iceland is unlikely to let up until after midnight, according to experts at the Icelandic Met Office.
    Strong winds this afternoon will likely complicate matters still further with drifting snow and poor visibility. Snow has covered most of South-West Iceland, with icy conditions on roads and localised snowstorms.
    Temperatures are currently below freezing across the whole country.

    Heavy snowfall returns to central Turkey. 11.01.2016 with video
    Snowfall which had been interrupted for two days began to hit central province of Sivas on Monday.
    Snow covered the whole city with a white blanket as of morning. Pedestrians had difficulty due to slippery road and drivers were not allowed to run vehicle without snow chain.
    Municipality workers are working continuously to clear snow to open way to 39 unreachable villages.

    Major snowstorm hits southern, central Finland. 12.1.2016
    The areas of southern and central Finland are being hit by a massive snow storm, wreaking havoc on roads and public transportation. Finnish state rail company VR has cancelled many of its local services outright and other delays on public transport and roads are anticipated on Tuesday.
    Central and southern Finland is being buried by a snowstorm that is expected to last a day-and-a-half.
    Heavy snowfall predictions caused the Finnish state rail company VR to pre-emptively cancel some of its local and long distance routes Tuesday and the bitterly cold temperatures inhibits the use of salt on the roads, which will also likely cause problems for drivers.

    Reader’s comment: Just a few headlines regarding the real weather news. Iceland, Finland, Turkey are part of, or very close to Europe. But the Dutch MSM does not report this. Instead Dutch television news had a report about wildfires in Australia. This is how people are being manipulated into believing the CAGW scam.

  2. Another proposal for Earth Shield!!!
    “CREATE a solar shield mechanism that can screen out the most energetic solar storms in the form of coronal mass ejections that could wipe out a significant number of electrical power grids, application satellites and other electronic devices that might be destroyed or incapacitated by coronal mass ejections (CMEs)”.  January 13, 2016

  3. “World weather is now developing faster into grim new era”. This is true, but one of the main problems is that news about “cold waves”, snowstorms etc. will not be reported by the Main Stream Media. In the case of the BBC we know for a fact now, based on a FOIA request, that the reporters have had a Green Media Training, which includes overreporting about droughts, heat waves and wildfires and underreporting about things like cold waves and snowstorms.
    For example, Dutch public TV station NOS reported about January 25, 2016 being the warmest January 25 in recorded history in the Netherlands. By what margin, that is not mentioned. Not long ago we had some days when there was a low temperature record, and the margin was quite big, but most Dutch MSM ignored that. After the blizzard that hit the eastern USA, this was mentioned in the news, but very soon they stopped reporting about that. The cold wave that has hit large pars of Asia is totally ignored by Dutch MSM.
    Here some news items about that cold wave:
    China battles snow and freezing cold. 150,000 households lose power22 Jan 2016 – Most parts of China’s Jiangxi Province was hit by heavy snow on Friday. Local power suppliers said part of the power grid in the cities of Nanchang and Jiujiang has been damaged by the extreme weather and 150,000 households have been affected.Over 3,000 workers are working to repair the grid. Temperatures in Zhejiang Province were expected to drop to minus 11 degrees Celsius on Saturday.The eastern province’s coldest weather since 1992 is expected to continue until Jan. 26.Authorities are struggling to restore electricity and ensure food and warmth as the worst cold front in years sweeps across most of China.Temperature in Beijing dropped to below minus 10C on Friday and was expected to hit a 30-year low of minus 17C from Saturday through Sunday, the Beijing meteorological station said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2016-01/23/c_135037108.htm

  4. Large parts of Asia are in a deep freeze, but the Main Stream Media does not report it.

    Thailand, January, 27, 2016: More deaths reported from cold weather. As upper Thailand continues to be affected by the cold spell, nine deaths believed to stem from hypothermia were reported in Bueng Kan, Nakhon Phanom, Tak, Rayong and Udon Thani provinces. (..) The cold spell prompted a primary school in Phetchabun’s Khao Khor district to close so pupils wouldn’t have to traverse in the chilly weather to school. The province’s resort Phu Thub Berk reported a temperature of 0 C with poor visibility due to fog. In a chilly Sakhon Nakhon province at 7-9 C, the provincial governor sent 6,000 blankets to affected residents in 18 districts, while in Ubon Ratchathani the provincial health office reported a growing number of flu and respiratory patients among children and the elderly,

  5. Here some more news items. My point is, even the BBC (who has had the so-called Green Media Training) reports a bit about Asia being in a deep freeze – although only mentioning China –
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-35398855
    the Dutch MSM keeps quiet about this. Asia is the biggest of all continents, and large parts are in a deep freeze. Instead they report about the smallest of all continents: Australia
    http://www.zie.nl/video/algemeen/Autos-staan-onder-water-na-zware-storm-in-Australie/rmhzyqift766
    Cars under water after heavy storm in Australia. Although heat waves were supposed to result from Global Warming, the new term Climate Change suggests that lots of rainfall are also CO2 related.
    The Dutch MSM is even worse than the BBC. They know very well what is happening in Asia, but they keep their mouth shot about it, only reporting about weather in other countries when it seems to fit in the Global Warming delusion and keeping silent about it when it does not fit in.

    Cold weather brings rare snowfalls to tropical Laos – 28 January 2016
    Snow has been reported across forested upland areas in northern Laos as the extreme cold snap and associated precipitation persisting across much of Indochinese Peninsula since Sunday begins to ease, China’s Xinhua news agency reported.
    Temperatures in the low single digits Celsius during the day and around zero degrees or below at night since Sunday were accompanied by snow across elevated areas of the country’s northern provinces.
    The cold snap led to a temporary three-day suspension of domestic flights by the national carrier Lao Airlines between the capital Vientiane and the airport servicing the province of Oudoumxay while flights to other affected provincial centres faced delays, state-run media Vientiane Times reported.
    In the province of Phongsaly, three-day extended leave was provided to public servants except police and defence personnel until Wednesday to help minimise the risks to life from unnecessary travel.
    Public schools across the country already closed for a week long break awaiting a decision on whether to reopen on schedule Monday depending on the weather.
    The scope of the socio-economic impact of the cold snap upon the least developed country of some six and a half million remains as yet unknown, with livestock and poultry deaths in the affected areas continuing to be reported to the authorities.
    Meanwhile, images of the rare sprinkling of white have been shared by locals and visitors alike on social media.
    Snow was also recorded at popular tourist destination Nam Et-Phou Louey National Park, a 4,229sqkm nature reserve incorporating parts of the provinces of Luang Prabang, Huaphan and Xiengkhouan boasting a peak elevation of 2,257m above sea level.
    Images of white-dusted tropical foliage were shared on the website of the park and its award-winning Night Safari, an ethical tourism venture that provides visitors with views of the area’s rare and endangered fauna while sustaining local employment. – Bernama, January 28, 2016.

    Reader’s comment: Snowfall in Laos was at first denied by Laos authorities, but now reliable sources from China (Xinhua) and Malaysia have confirmed the rare snowfall in tropical Laos. And also: in the past we have seen snowfall in Saudi Arabia (Tabuk area) before, but now for the first time the word HEAVY snowfall is being used. The 24 sec. video shows a car and a tent covered under a thick layer of snow.

  6. Mexico has the coldest winter in history: There is snow, temperatures are down to -17 ° C and the state of emergency is declared in 24 of the 32 states. January 31, 2016
    Mexico comes from living his eighth winter storm season when just average, which already had 34 cold fronts, with snow and temperatures that dropped in some places up to -17 ° C, forcing the government to declare “extraordinary emergency” 24 the 32 states of the country.
    While the storm Jonah was unleashed on the United States, in Mexico temperatures dropped to record lows, which was reflected not only the level of concern of the authorities, but also among the population turned for hours ConFríoYo the hashtag trending topic.
    The National Meteorological System, has warned that the worst of winter may be yet to come and that temperatures will fall in the north, northeast, east and center of Mexico, by any measure.
    More than 440 municipalities and assist their inhabitants.
    The central government provided funds to enable different lines so that at least 446 municipalities receive food and shelter, to immediately begin to assist people in the most precarious situation. The situation is particularly worrying in the north, where the thermometer reached the -17 ° C mark. In Mexico City it snowed in January, a phenomenon not seen in the capital since 1967.
    Regionally, the most affected are the northern states: Chihuahua, Coahuila, Sonora, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, although significant frost and freeze municipalities of Puebla, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi and Veracruz are also recorded.
    On the heights of the “Neovolcanic”, the mountain range that crosses Mexico and includes volcanoes Popocatepetl, Nevado de Toluca and Pico de Orizaba, snow dominated the landscape.
    Forecasters say however that cold feeling that exists among the population is higher than usual due to the El Niño delayed entering long winter and when he arrived he was more intense than before.

  7. This news about the “dzud” in Mongolia is 5 days old, but still important enough to know. This year the winter in Mongolia is even worse than usual, the Red Cross has delivered food parcels, warm clothes and fuel to people caught in the dzud to help them cope.
    http://blogs.redcross.org.uk/emergencies/2016/02/mongolia-beware-dzud/
    Each bush fire in Australia is headline news for the Dutch MSM, but the Mongolian dzud is not mentioned at all. Even the leading English language Mongolian news agency, UB Post Mongolnews, does not mention the recent distribution of aid to the dzud victims by the Red Cross.

  8. The Siberian stereotype says its always cold here, but this is a fallacy. Usually. Elsewhere, for example in Chita, the temperature is 24C, and in many regions there are growing risks for forest fires.
    But as these pictures show, in some areas of western Siberia, the thermometers have plunged to around zero. Residents of Surgut, Noyabrsk, Novy Urengoy and other cities woke on 1 June, the first day of summer, to find it looked more like Chirstmas.
    In some areas there were even snow drifts. In Noyabrsk, the local administration restarted heating supplies to homes.

    Reader’s comment: Mundo Perdido, lost world, how well chosen the name of a village that disappeared under four meters of snow. But we will not read this kind of news in the MSM, nor will we see the popemobile driving around there, in the Pope’s native country, Argentina.

  10. This is happening in Argentina, the native country of Pope Francis. Near the Chilean border. There has been excessive snowfall on the other side of the border, too.

    Reader’s comment: Global warming sure has hit your native country hard, Pope.

  11. Kara over: nature continues to mock the Ukrainians – in June it snowed. Kyiv, June 10.
    Something does not define the start of the summer in Ukraine. That a country bombarded powerful downpours and wind, the snow falls in the summer.
    At this time, the celestial car caught up with one of the oldest cities of Western Ukraine – Lutsk. Because of heavy rain flooded the city literally. As the local people in social networks, the rain started on Thursday, June 9 afternoon.
    However, when the water test was over, began “copper pipes”. Rain in Lutsk was replaced by snow and hail. As a result of natural “surprises” the city is not only flooded, but also covered with snow.
    Local media later wrote that the residents of the city even has a unique opportunity to play in the early summer of snowballs. Comments on the Net also pleased and made me think.

  12. This is the photo of northern Chile that worries NASA 16/07/2016

    That kind of storms usually do not occur in that area, but NASA has managed to explain the phenomenon.

    On July 8 a strange dust off the coastal area of ​​northern Chile was recorded. That kind of sandstorms is unusual in the west coast of South America, so it was regarded as ‘unusual’.
    Winds in the region “not contribute to develop large sandstorms, as we see in North Africa or in Asia,” said Joseph Prospero, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Miami (Florida, USA), cited by NASA.

    However, experts have found that this accumulation of stuff happened naturally. Apparently, strong winds that moved sand from a high hill located in one of the areas between the Andes and the Pacific coast. “The origin could be on a high slope, which may have allowed the sand to rise and travel to far distances,” said NASA.

    Also, this agglomeration could have given katabatic winds generated “when the air comes into contact with a cold soil that is at high altitude and frozen by radiation”.

    Along with dust, these currents brought rain and snow, which caused the temporary closure of several airports.
