Insane Snow in Canada: Get Used to the New Normal

“These new extreme early blizzards confirm this.” – Argiris Diamantis

Abnormal ‘Weather Bomb’ underway; wind gusts of 140 km/h

5 Oct 2018 – We are only days into the month of October and many across the west are digging out from a foot of snowfall. But what’s interesting is that the strongest storm that we’ve seen in months is only now underway, with heavy snowfall, far-reaching winds and blizzard conditions for some Canadians.

This is not common

While residents in northern Canada are no strangers to powerful blizzards, the climatological statistics of a low this deep so early in the season is not common.

“Sub 950 mb extratropical lows are very rare, especially this early in the season,” says Chris Doyle, a retired meteorologist from British Columbia.


Record breaking WALLOP

3 Oct 2018 – Tuesday’s record breaking WALLOP has certainly left its mark on the region. Calgary ground to a halt after nearly 40 cm of snow hammered the city, prompting appeals to neighbouring cities … This unusually cold pattern however, is set to last through the first half of October, meaning these massive mounds of snow aren’t likely to go anywhere.

“Get used to the new normal,” says Argiris. “This is exactly what Dr. Piers Corbyn has said. The mini ice age is accelerating, and these new extreme early blizzards confirm this.”
