Declining Spring Snowcover Update

Experts say that snow cover is declining, particularly in spring, and it is due to global warming. As is almost always the case, they have no clue what they are talking about.

    People talk rubbish
    The more rubbish they talk
    The more rubbish they talk
    Talk about an exponential curve!
    When they realise they are talking rubbish about something.
    They talk rubbish about something else.

    Perhaps it’s due to the rising number of snowflakes in more southerly latitudes.

    What is strange is that the NOAA didn’t run their normal “March was the warmest on record” story this year. As I type this on April 4 I still haven’t seen those stories.

    Why don’t you plot the third (NH spring) graph?

      NH (Northern Hemisphere) Spring graph shows decrease while Fall and Winter show increase per Rutgers. So it would seem the snow has possibly increased and both start and end of weather seasons have moved to earlier dates. However the cumulative for seasons is up, NORTHERN HEMISPHERE TOTAL SNOW MASS CURRENTLY RUNNING 300 GIGATONS ABOVE THE 1982-2012 AVERAGE, https://electroverse.net/northern-hemisphere-snow-mass-300-gigatons-above-1982-2012-average/

      Martin, I nominate you and Jim Hunt to team up with “Hearts in Ice” and set up camp in the arctic with your two likeminded lady friends who are promoting a “dialogue on climate change and a way to engage citizens from around the world in an inspirational, positive way.” Keep your social distance of course, but surely you will be right at home in the cold, and snow and ice you all are so fond of. I’m sure your inspiration and positive way will be welcome amongst that citizenry. Don’t worry, we won’t miss it here.

      P.S. BYOTP

    Someone needs to have a li’l chat wit dose snitches at Rutgers…perhaps some knee cap alteration is in order.

  6. Kurt in Switzerland says:

    Fall and Winter snow cover for the N. Hemisphere show an increase over the past 50 y.

    What about Spring and Summer?
    What about the overall (annual) snow cover?
    What about the S. Hemisphere?
    Any good data for longer periods than 50 y?

    The early- to mid-Holocene was marked by a climate considerably milder (warmer) than what we currently enjoy in the early 21st Century. This is fairly clear for the Alpine Regions (N Hemisphere, meaning Central & N Europe, including Siberia and N America). Glaciologists keep discovering pesky tree trunks in the paths of receding glaciers, evidence of long-lost forests, where today one finds only ice and moraine scree.

    For some reason, that mild early- to mid-Holocene climate didn’t precipitate any tipping points. I wonder why.

    But skier visits are down and all ski resorts in Colorado were forced to close. /s

    The “news” media here sure looks a lot like what they have under communist China. Actually, I think it is the exact same.

  9. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Spring snowcover decline is likely due to farming practice. Farmers can prepare their land in late winter and early spring by plowing the snow into the soil. That lowers the albedo of the surface as brown dirt is exposed. Localized warming results, thus melting lighter late snow falls.

    One of the things which influences this is increased markets for biofuels, meaning more acreage can be sown for profit. So the global warming idea can actually cause widespread local warming because of all the extra land being brought into production in spring…

    A wonderful collection of ‘experts’ that you’ve quoted: ‘Climate Central’, the government bureaucracy and, last but not least, ‘Skeptical Science’!

    But wait! We can’t have any nasty facts spoiling their endeavours (note correct spelling!), now can we?

    Wrong again warmunists!

  12. rah says:

    Rest of April set to be considerably colder than average for the eastern half of the country with the exception of the SE. Precip should be about average. Actually a chance for snow for central Indiana where I live during that time.

    As for the snow? A major factor has to be the increased water vapor we’ve had for some time due to this period of elevated ocean water temps we’ve been seeing for several years now.

  13. Tel says:

    Fall is trending up, steeply. Winder is almost flat. Spring is trending down.

    That means a phase shift, doesn’t it?

    Maybe that’s more important to study than the global mean temp.
