Ice Box July: Unusual Cold, Surface Frost Sweep Across Central Europe!

July 10, 2019

By Paul Homewood

No Tricks Zone has the latest on the coldwave gripping much of Northern Europe. Following a new record low for July set in Lower Saxony last week, there are unconfirmed reports of a new record July low for the whole of the Netherlands:

From No Tricks Zone:

Where have all the globe-trotting climate ambulance chasers gone? Well, they’re nowhere to be found in Europe nowadays.

The reason is the unusual cold that has swept across a large swath of the continent and which has sent temperatures plummeting to near freezing.

Yesterday morning ground frost hit parts of Belgium, Holland, Germany and the Czech Republic, as the above chart shows. Unsurprisingly, the media have been curiously silent about it.

Record Dutch July low

It has also been reported that a new all-time July low had been recorded in the Netherlands, according to one source here. The online NL Times here reported, “residents of Eastern Netherlands woke up to a frost covered landscape on Thursday” and that in Twente, “a minimum of -1.6 degrees Celsius was measured – a record low for July, according to Weerplaza.”

The cold has now gripped northern Europe for about a week now, as the mornings of July 3 and 4 saw “at times widespread surface frost in Germany” as well.

The cold is not expected to subside anytime soon. A recent GFS forecast shows it will likely persist across Northern Europe and most of northern Russia for another 10 days.

So don’t expect to see any global warming ambulance chasers to be found there. They were last sighted in Alaska, and may soon be headed to Iran or the “stans”.

A record high for July in Anchorage is headline news at the BBC. But record lows in Germany and the Netherlands (not to mention Brazil) don’t seem to get a mention.

It is of course only weather, just as the Anchorage and French heatwaves were.But as Pierre Gosselin rightly points out, the global warming ambulance chasers only want to go to the latter.

    All the discussion about weather is a distraction from the real issue: the anti-industry ideology of the Greens/environmentalists.

    They only go to the warmer climes to record record temperatures so they can top up their tan’s.

    By chance I’ve been looking at winds around the UK and wider over the last week or two, Denmark and SW Norway has had a brisk Northerly wind for most of this period.

    Jo Nova pointed out that the alarmists manage to find old press clippings to show rare snow has always happened in parts of Oz, but not the ones about worse heat than these days!

    This 2017 record must be considered significant if any is, yet I didn’t hear much in the MSM.

    “The Swiss online Baseler Zeitung (BAZ) here reports: “In Greenland July this year has been the coldest ever. That has left climate catastrophists struggling to explain it.”
    Citing the Danish Meteorological Institute, the BAZ comments that the -33°C reading earlier this month was “the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the northern hemisphere“, smashing the previous record of 30.7°C.”

    Ah but the BBC tells us about unusual weather on the continent, but for once doesn’t blame it on “climate change”.. Still no mention of the unprecedented cold weather though.

    This morning (Thursday) R4 news claimed many lives were lost in freak hail storms and cold weather in Greece. However, to maintain their position on CC dogma they refused to use the opportunity to link this with the exceptional cold July in Europe. Instead, they went on to claim, ‘the storms follow a period of very hot weather'(!). Ycnmiu

    More crazy claims! “London to have climate of Barcelona in 30 years.”

    Which is quite timely as someone found this 1949 clipping recently!

    “Britain will become a sub-tropical country in the next 30 years.”

    (Bit hard to read but worth it).

    ‘Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it’, in some sort of climate alarmist groundhog day time-loop it seems!

    And more from the Times – The met office top naming storms, using deeper shades of red, just saying it’s the hottest day on record when it isn’t – massive subterfuge

    Where one arm of the jetstream pushes heat to the poles, so another pushes cold to lower latitudes, however as Tony Heller has said red on the map is climate, blue weather.
