UK Met Office Issues ‘Amber’ Warning With Feet Of Snow And -18C (0.4F) Forecast
Following on from yesterday’s (revised down) -15.4C (4.3F), the UK went a little better this morning with -16C (3.2F) posted at Altnaharra Saws, Scotland — the coldest March temperature in the UK since 2010, and among the coldest on record.
Even colder temperatures are set to prevail as the week progresses, with the UK’s daily low for March 10 (the -15C/5F from 1931) all-but assured of being bested tomorrow. A low of -18C (-0.4F), maybe even -19C (-2.2F) could soon be reached — impossibilities under the original global warming hypotheses which called for an end to such extreme low temperatures.
The accompanying March snow is also set to intensify.
As a result, the Met Office has upped its warning from yellow to ‘amber’ across Wales and swathes of northern England Thursday through noon Friday, with some locales forecast to pick-up 2 feet.
Strong winds will also create “dangerous blizzard conditions”.
The Arctic Outbreak is expected to cause “significant disruption,” including dangerous road conditions, flight and train delays/cancellations and widespread power outages, states the amber warning. Rural communities could also “become cut off” by road closures and phone service could be disrupted.
I reported Tuesday that the UK was readying an emergency coal-fired power plant to cope with increased heating demand as green ideals and renewable pipe dreams continue to fail to live up to the sales pitch.
On Wednesday, as temperatures plunged across the country, that backup plant was called into action.
The National Grid said two coal units at an EDF-controlled plant had helped it meet peak evening demand. Low wind sapped the effectiveness of the nation’s wind turbines just as a cold spell hit, the National Grid said.
Historically Cold Utah
As America’s incredible snowfall steals the headlines, there’s another factor that has reached near historic proportions this winter, one that is silencing the deluded “warm snow” arm of the AGW Party — it’s been really cold.
The West’s snowpack is indeed worthy of the ink, with California, for example, on for its snowiest season in recorded history.
Researchers at the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab have recorded 603 inches of snow since the 2022-2023 winter season commenced on Oct 1, making it the fifth-snowiest since the mountain facility was built in 1946. And there’s “plenty of the season left,” so says NWS meteorologist Mark Deutschendorf who isn’t ruling out the lab busting 1952’s all-time record of 812 inches.
Additional feet, perhaps as many as 12 are headed for Cali this week, and residents near Big Sur have been told to stock up on enough supplies to last them at least two weeks. Heed the warnings of other mountain communities, they’ve been told, who have been trapped for weeks by feet upon feet of snow with supplies dwindling.
Switching attention to nearby Utah, the snow has been historic here, too — but as touched on above, the Baltic COLD cannot be overlooked. The local National Weather Service office has shared numbers that show exactly how frigid it’s been.
During the period between November and February, Salt Lake City had the fifth lowest number of days above 50F in the city’s history dating back to the 1800s. Currently, 2023 has as only delivered two days above the 50F mark — zero in February.
It’s also been 121 days since Salt Lake City hit 60F.
Elsewhere, Logan has experienced just four days above 50F, tying for fourth fewest.
And anomalous cold has even gripped southern Utah, with Cedar City posting its third fewest days above 50F.
South America’s Crop Reductions
The USDA have cut Argentina’s soybean output by 8 million mt to 33 million mt, well-below the market’s projections, due to wild swings in February’s weather, between intense heat and intrusions of unseasonable cold.
Argentina is now projected to export 3.4 million mt, down from the previous 4.2 million mt, while imports were increased by 1 million mt on the month to 7.2 million mt.
Global soybean output dropped from February’s 383.01 million mt to 375.15 million mt, due to cuts in Argentina and Uruguay’s crop. Global ending stock estimates were pegged back at 100.01 million mt, down from the previous 102 million mt projection.
Brazilian output remained unchanged at 153 million mt while Brazil’s exports were slightly increased to 92.7 million mt, an all-time high and 700,00 mt increase from February. The country’s field work is 8.9% below last year’s 52.5% at this time of year.
Uruguay soybean production is also lowered 200,000 mt to 2.1 million mt.
Elsewhere, China’s output also dropped a little to 20.28 million mt.
While U.S. 2022/23 soybean ending stocks were pegged at 5.7 million mt, 408,000 mt lower than the previous projections. If realized, ending stocks would be the lowest in seven years, according to the USDA.
Brazil’s delayed soybean harvest has spilled into corn, too.
The nation’s key safrinha corn sowing reached 63.6% on March 6, a figure below the 74.8% posted during the same period in 2022. In MT, for example, the period for sowing has now ended with 8% still yet to be planted.
And finally, Brazil’s summer corn harvest reached a completion rate of 22.6% this week, meaning it too is behind the previous year’s rate of 26.1%.
South America’s crop reductions will strain global stocks, for sure; but make no mistake about it, it is the ongoing ‘controlled demolition’ of the West, the calculated ‘war of attrition’ that will upend global food security far more.
See the ‘red alerts’ posted by U.S. growers; the desperate plight of the Dutch Farmers.
Heed their warnings.

Trying to boil this down:
Australia is coming to blows and the traitors at large in every Parliament in this country bar a few patriots are dead meat.
As are the family members of the NWO residing in Australia. Northern NSW. WHEREVER.
The Rules of Warfare on the Australian Continent are now defined by Respect to the Rules of Age so defined by Every Relevant Authority participating in War Crimes Against Australian Citizens.
May the Australian People never forget what freedom means and the high price our ancestors paid to preserve it.
And may we repay their honour with our own.
there’s a difference between nitrogen NOx and amoonia of manure which can easy be turned into biogas which could provide Dutch with 7% replacement of natural gas.
Now its presented only cattle-farmers are the bad guys while leaving the heavy industry like oilcompanies and tata steel in the clear which pollutes more.

The Zionist are planning on starving those who don’t comply to CBDCs and 24/7 surveillance.
Antisemitic tripe has no place in the comments.
antizionism is not anti-Semitic per se but anti the nwo cabal that are leading us by the nose to slavery or death
Ignoring the truth will not make it go away Ashkenazi
There was nothing ‘anti-semitic’ about his comment. Perhaps you should do a biblical and/or genetic study and relearn what a ‘semite’ actually is. When I became a christian, I did not become a nazarene, neither does any japhethite become a semite by claiming to be a ‘jew’ also, “jew” was, in biblical a descendant of Judah.
Japhethites are NOT semites regardless of their religious preference.
’09 we went into El Nino but that summer we had no corn crop just miles and miles of muddy fields. Rain, no evaporation. https://ggweather.com/enso/oni.htm
’98 we were in peak El Nino all rain no corn crop and going into La Nina. Miles of muddy fields, non stop rain no evap. Ya just never know.
Notice the 11 year average sunspot cycle between the two years
Seems to me that similar times into or out of the 11 year cycle may produce similar weather, not just the peaks or the valleys!
’09 TCI was about the same as now and La Nina flipped into EL Nino like now which are warm trends but it was record cold wet summer so bad they couldn’t plow or plant a corn. So this summer could be a repeat of ’09. The last two summers in La Nina were record hot and dry when it was sposed to be extra cold and wet NW US. You just never know.
Utah has been brutally cold this year, much worse on the Wasatch Back than SLC. We have 6 feet in the valley and several -20F lows. Very few days above freezing highs. More on the way.
Snowing in the U.K.? Meh, it’s winter. Snowing here in the Antipodes? Meh, it’s summer, can snow any month of the year, but hey, Dr Whiner said ‘too hot to snow’ 23 years ago (and was given a promotion).
Autumn/Fall arrived today, the Year Without A Summer just flipped, early: snow down south, a nip in the air up north here (still in boardshorts & barefeet) humid northerlies given way to chilly sou’westers… ah well, there’s always NEXT YEAR for that mythological ‘heat’ to arrive… maybe.
We should all have been reading for at least 10 years of various people publishing and informing that we are heading into deep cold.
Stock up food that lasts in a cupboard and allow trees to grow, save the pruning s, learn skills hoard cloth and utensils. grow what you can rely on and save seeds.
On a lighter note I remember it snowed in June when I was a child and there was different colored sand in the gutters, This was in Yorkshire, England around 1960
But wait fellas! According to an expert the antarctic ice sheet is going into free fall and the sea levels will rise dramatically and no guesses as to who the culprit is – CO2
To give some credit this guy has been drilling antarctic ice cores for years, but the sudden leap of faith is staggering. Hockey stickesque on steroids

What is an EDF?
Remember, this is the WARMEST snow ever recorded. The WARMEST snow on record and it is due to all of us using Gasoline and Coal. STOP the use of coal and gasoline while we can , or we will all die of extreme hot snow..
That beautiful WHITE WOMAN doing the report on the Dutch Farmers is the REAL target. She is to be replaced after producing numerous nonwhite children. The land from the farmers is going to housing for those who AreNotWhite. It’s war and you don’t know it.
