curious northern hemisphere snow coverage trends...

October and November significantly up...









But April a bit of down trend and May a down trend...







Fall and Winter coming early, and Spring and Summer also coming early?

1. Al Gore Prediction: Snow and frost will disappear

There are hundreds of scientists who made this claim over the past 20 years. More heat waves, no snow in the winter… Climate models… over 20 times more precise than the UN IPCC global models. In no other country do we have more precise calculations of climate consequences. They should form the basis for political planning" Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg, September 2, 2008.
Reality: As soon as the 30-year Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) cycle started it's cold phase in 2007 we've seen a wholesale change in the severity of cold/snowy Winters the past 10 years. Cold Pacific Ocean - cold snowy planet with 4 of the past 7 winters the snowiest on record based on NOAA/NASA measurements that started in the late 1960s. Wait until the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) cycle enters it's cold phase in a few years - it's still warm but already peaked and getting colder. Won't even talk about the Sun's role as it enters it's 300 year minimum in the next couple of years. Last time all 3 lined up in the cold phase together was the 1600-1700s aka the Little Ice Age.

2. While PDO WAS negative, however it was strongly positive mid-2014 till early this year

It’s curious why the Fall snow and Spring low snow... nothing seems to match
