Yet more unseasonal snow has settled in South Korea these past few days, namely across the Gangwon Province. This is an “unlikely event for May,” reports newsinfo.inquirer.net, “when early summer weather is typically seen across the country.”
This makes it the first time in 22 years that it has snowed in South Korea in the month of May.
The snow was substantial, too, not your fleeting wispy flakes: the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) said Sunday that 18.5 cm (7.3 inches) of global warming goodness blanketed Gangwon Province through Sunday.
“An influx of strong wind from the east concentrated a pack of rain clouds in mountainous regions within the province,” stated the weather agency.
Heavy snow alerts were issued for the nation’s mountainous regions over the weekend.
The alert was lifted Sunday morning, but the weather agency warned that temperatures would remain unseasonably low, and that thunderstorms would also likely prevail across Gangwon Province.
North America Braces for yet more Mid-Spring Dumpings
April has been an unusually cold and SNOWY one across parts of the U.S. — a powerful storm dropped sizable accumulations on the Colorado Rockies Sunday and also dusted parts of Metro Denver.
Snow started falling late Sunday in the mountains west of Denver. The flurries soon intensified and became more widespread overnight, dropping the snow level to 5,500 feet as the colder air funneled in.
The snow was heavy and wet due to air temperatures hanging around the freezing mark, reported denver.cbslocal.com on Monday.
Most foothill passes turned slushy, at worst, but at elevations of 9,000+ feet, impassible snowpacked roads have been reported as upwards of 19+cm (7.5 inches) of mid-spring snow settled.
Looking ahead, there appears plenty more where that came from as we progress through the month:
A blast of Arctic air is responsible for the snow –unsurprisingly– as yet another frigid mass sinks anomalously-far south due to this weak and wavy “meridional” jet stream flow phenomenon (linked to low solar activity).
Over the next 10 days, temperature departures are forecast to drop by as much as 18C to 20C below the mid-May climatological norms for many, with almost every state copping at least a taste of the out-of-season chill:

Zooming in on that snowfall, we see they’ll likely be counting the totals in the feet across the west, particularly over the higher elevations of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho — even the Dakotas could receive a healthy dusting, as well as the far Northeast, too (not to mention large swathes north of the border, in Canada):
This May “blast” is coming after what was a cold April for many across the CONUS–despite MSM reporting.
The month was colder than normal across Wyoming, for example, including in Casper, where the average temperature of 40.8F was some 1.9F below the norm, according to National Weather Service data.
Riverton Town finished up 3.3F below the usual.
While Riverton Airport actually suffered its 6th coldest April in recorded history.
Pictured below is NOAA’s official forecast for April, 2021, issued as late as March 31 — note the well-above average temperatures that were forecast for the majority of the United States, even in those regions I’ve mentioned above that in reality experienced a well-below average April:
As usual, we see a government agency over-egging the warming, and by some degree, too — but that appears to be their modus operandi these days.
Reject the politicized dogma that is AGW.
And instead, open your mind to the real-world observations, as these reveal an entirely different story.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
