"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes, switching about from drought to deluge, would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date. Our early warnings spoke to the issue of global heating from the core outward, hardly Global Warming, a surface or atmospheric issue, but caused by consternation in the core. Affected by the approach of Planet X, which was by then starting to zoom rapidly toward the inner solar system for its periodic passage, the core was churning, melting the permafrost and glaciers and riling up volcanoes. When the passage did not occur as expected in 2003 because Planet X had stalled in the inner solar system, we explained the increasing weather irregularities in the context of the global wobble that had ensued - weather wobbles where the Earth is suddenly forced under air masses, churning them. This evolved by 2005 into a looping jet stream, loops breaking away and turning like a tornado to affect the air masses underneath. Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, droughts had become more intractable and deluges positively frightening, temperature swings bringing snow in summer in the tropics and searing heat in Artic regions, with the violence of storms increasing in number and ferocity."

ZETATALK

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for February 4, 2012:

 

The wobble seems to have changed, as the temperature in Europe suddenly plunged after being like an early Spring, Alaska has its coldest temps ever while the US and much of Canada is having an extremely mild winter. India went from fatal cold spell to balmy again. Has the Earth changed position vs a vs Planet X to cause this? [and from another] Bitter cold records broken in Alaska - all time coldest record nearly broken, but Murphy's Law intervenes [Jan 30] http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/30/bitter-cold-records-broken-in-alaska Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment. While the continental USA has a mild winter and has set a number of high temperature records in the last week and pundits ponder whether they will be blaming the dreaded "global warming" for those temperatures, Alaska and Canada have been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures on record during the last week.

There has been no change in the wobble pattern, the wobble has merely become more severe. Nancy noted a Figure 8 format when the Earth wobble first became noticeable, in early 2005, after Planet X moved into the inner solar system at the end of 2003. The Figure 8 shifted along to the east a bit on the globe between 2005 and 2009, (the last time Nancy took its measure) as Planet X came closer to the Earth, encountering the magnetic N Pole with a violent push earlier in the day. But the pattern of the Figure 8 remained essentially the same. So what changed recently that the weather patterns became noticeably different in late January, 2012?

The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.

The next loop of the Figure 8 swings the globe so that the N Pole moves in the other direction, putting the globe again at a tilt but this time in the other direction. This tilt is discernable in weather maps of Europe, again along a diagonal line. Depending upon air pressure and temperature differences, the weather on either side of this diagonal line may be suddenly warm or suddenly cold. The tilt and diagonal line lingers to affect much of the US and Canada, but the Figure 8 changes at this point to be an up and down motion, pulling the geographic N Pole south so the US is experiencing a warmer than expected winter under a stronger Sun. Then the cycle repeats, with the magnetic N Pole of Earth pushed violently away again as the Sun is positioned over the Pacific.

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 6, 2013:

 

Would the Zetas be able to let us know what is causing the early break-up of the Arctic Ice, the ice seems to have taken on a swirling pattern at the same time, would this be wobble related? [and from another] http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Canada+Arctic+cracks+spec... The ice in Canada’s western Arctic ripped open in a massive “fracturing event” this spring that spread like a wave across 1,000 kilometres of the Beaufort Sea. Huge leads of water – some more than 500 kilometres long and as much as 70 kilometres across – opened up from Alaska to Canada’s Arctic islands as the massive ice sheet cracked as it was pushed around by strong winds and currents. It took just seven days for the fractures to progress across the entire area from west to east. [and from another] http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=80752&src=iot... A high-pressure weather system was parked over the region, producing warmer temperatures and winds that flowed in a southwesterly direction. That fueled the Beaufort Gyre, a wind-driven ocean current that flows clockwise. The gyre was the key force pulling pieces of ice west past Point Barrow, the northern nub of Alaska that protrudes into the Beaufort Sea.


The Figure 8 formed by the N Pole during the daily Earth wobble has shifted somewhat to the East, due to Planet X positioned more to the right of the Earth during its approach. This was anticipated, and well described in ZetaTalk, the Earth crowding to the left in the cup to escape the approach of Planet X, so the angle between these two planets would change slightly. This shift of the Figure 8 to the East is due to the push against the Earth’s magnetic N Pole occurring sooner each day than prior. Thus instead of occurring when the Sun is high over the Pacific, over New Zealand, it is now occurring when the Sun is high over Alaska. All the wobble points have shifted eastward accordingly.

This has brought a lingering Winter to the western US, and a changed sloshing pattern to the Arctic waters. Instead of Pacific waters being pushed through the Bering Straits into the Arctic when the polar push occurs, the wobble is swinging the Arctic to the right, and then later to the left, creating a circular motion in the waters trapped in the Arctic. Since the Earth rotates counterclockwise, the motion also takes this path. This is yet another piece of evidence that the establishment is hard pressed to explain. They are attempting to ascribe this to high pressure and wind, all of which are not new to the Arctic, but this circular early breakup of ice in the Arctic is new.

More than 7 700 households without water supply as record snow hits Hokkaido, Japan


More than 7 700 households without water supply as record snow hits Hokkaido, Japan


Heavy snow has been falling intermittently in Hokkaido, Japan, since Tuesday, February 23, 2021, with Iwamizawa city recording its second-highest snowfall of 2.05 m (6.7 feet) on Thursday, 25. It resulted in disruptions in the city, particularly in train services and even the water supply in the neighboring Bibai city, where more than 7 700 households have been affected.

Heavy snow has been piling up in Hokkaido, especially in the Sorachi region, since Tuesday.

Iwamizawa city was blanketed by 2.05 m (6.7 feet) of snow as of Friday morning, the second-highest snowfall in the area since the start of statistics. The figures were just 3 cm (1.2 inches) shy of the record 2.08 m (6.8 feet).

The snow led to travel and water supply disruptions in the area. Hundreds of train services were suspended, while the neighboring Bibai city lost access to water.

Officials believe that the accumulated snow broke the aced water pipe that connects the dam to the water purification plant, according to local media.

As of Thursday evening, 7 700 households were affected.

The local meteorological observatory said the winter-like conditions will continue until Saturday, February 27.

At least 2 400 cold temperature records broken or tied in the U.S. from February 12 to 16, 2021


At least 2 400 cold temperature records broken or tied in the U.S. from February 12 to 16, 2021




At least 2 400 preliminary daily cold temperature records, including cold maximums and minimums, were broken or tied at longer-term sites (75+ years of data) in the United States from February 12 to 16, 2021. The cold snap peaked from February 14 to 16. Another winter storm will affect a large area from Friday, February 19 -- from the Lower Mississippi Valley into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

Over just the past week, much of the Lower 48 has been punished with record-breaking cold and unusually heavy snow and ice, NWS Weather Prediction Center said.

From the Pacific Northwest across the Rockies and into the Southern Plains and Midwest, the snowfall has been measured in feet. Ice and snow continue to plague Texas and the Northeast.

In the NCEI database, approximately 30% of available U.S. sites set cold maximum records, and about 20% set minimum records.

Analyzed temperatures were 22 to 28 °C (40 - 50 °F) below average over a large portion of the central and southern Plains.

At the peak of the cold, more than 5 million homes were without power, most of them in Texas (4.3+ million). More than 30 people have lost their lives.

Some of the records on February 15 and 16 include:

-38.8 °C (-38 °F) at Hibbing/Chisholm, MN on February 15. The previous record was -35.5 °C (-28 °F) set on February 15, 1939.

-36.1 °C (-33 °F) at Valentine, NE on February 15. The previous record was -33.3 °C (-28 °F) set in 2007.

-33.8 °C (-29 °F) at North Platte, NE on February 15. The previous record was -30.5 °C (-23 °F) set in 1881.

-35 °C (-31 °F) at Lincoln, NE on February 16. The previous record was -27.7 °C (-18 °F) set in 1978.

-34.4 °C (-30 °F) at Hastings, NE on February 16. The previous record was -25 °C (-13 °F) set in 1979.

-33.3 °C (-28 °F) at Sioux City, IA on February 16. The previous record was -31.6 °C (-25 °F) set in 1936.

73% of CONUS was covered in snow as of midnight CST, February 16, making it the greatest extent on record in the database which dates back to 2003.

Here are some snowfall totals over the past two days for the winter storm that entered Texas and Oklahoma Tuesday morning, February 16. 

"Some very impressive numbers for what has been an extraordinarily active pattern over the past week," NWS WPC said.

On February 14, U.S. saw the largest area covered by issued Winter Storm Warnings in the Lower 48 states since at least 2005.

~1.6 million km2 (994 193 mi2) beats the previous number 1 day over the past 15+ years of 1.2 million km2 (745 645 mi2) on February 1, 2011.

A major winter storm will continue to bring significant impacts from the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast U.S. today, February 18, with significant ice accumulations and heavy snowfall expected.

Well below normal temperatures will exist throughout the central third of the country into the weekend.

Libya sees first snow in 15 years as cold snap hits parts of northern Africa and Middle East


Libya sees first snow in 15 years as cold snap hits parts of northern Africa and Middle East




The Green Mountain in northeastern Libya saw its first snowfall in 15 years this week as a cold wave swept through parts of the southern Mediterranean region, northern Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel.

The rare snow started falling on Monday, February 15, which brought delight to residents as they enjoyed the wintry scenery.

Mohammed Saleh, a resident from Bayda, believes that the snowfall is an omen for peace in Libya. "We hope the snowfall will be a good sign for our homeland by unifying our institutions and unifying our country and for people to return to one another and love each other."

He continued, "As we see now, the children, people, and families that came to this area, the area of Sidi Mohamed Al-Hamri."

Ali Al-Shairi, another Bayda Resident, captured the winter wonderland and said he was "surprised by the number of families who came here to take pictures in the snow."

According to the Libyan National Meteorological Center, temperatures below freezing point were recorded in several cities on Monday, including Al-Bayda, Yefren, Nalut, Al-Marj, Green Mountain, and the Nafusa Mountain.

In neighboring Egypt, the cold snap brought freezing rain, strong winds, and mist. While the spell had no remarkable impact on road traffic, officials closed a number of ports in Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheik. Fishing activities were also suspended, as a precautionary measure.

Ice pellets were reported in Alexandria, Beheira, and Port Said, with some parts slicked with snow, according to the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA). 

Heavy snow was experienced as well over parts of the Middle East, including Syria, Lebanon, and Israel since Tuesday, February 16, paralyzing citizens' daily lives.

Local media said the snow has already blocked some of the roads in Syria, including in capital Damascus, and disrupted traffic on Wednesday, February 17. Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported snow as high as 15 cm (6 inches) in Um Houran area in Dahir al-Jabal.

Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S. – State of emergency in Texas


Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S. Ice, snow, bitter cold hits millions as major storm pummels swaths of U.S.

More than 140 million Americans in 26 states were under some sort of winter advisory heading into Monday as a major winter storm swept through the southern Plains.

The storm, which has already caused power outages and a number of pileups on icy roads, was expected to travel up the Northeast through Tuesday, bringing heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures, the National Weather Service said.

Six inches to a foot of snow was forecast to stretch from the mid-Mississippi to Ohio Valleys, across the lower Great Lakes and into northern New England, according to the service.

It also warned about more power outages and significant travel disruptions across much of the southern Plains, as well as “bitterly cold air” that can result in “dangerous or life-threatening wind chills.

At least parts of all 254 counties in Texas were under either a winter storm watch or winter storm warning over the weekend. As of 5:45 a.m. ET, 1.5 million people in Texas were experiencing power blackouts.

The weather was affecting operations at airports across the area, with more than 760 flights canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, amid a holiday weekend.

The first winter storm watch in a decade was issued for Brownsville, Texas. At 3,360 days, they had the longest streak of any National Weather Service office without one.

A police officer in Schulenburg, Texas, was responding to an accident caused by icy conditions, when another car lost control on the ice, striking the police cruiser on Feb. 13.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which manages the flow of electric power in the state, said it was experiencing record-breaking electric demand due to the extreme cold temperatures that have gripped Texas.

In a statement Sunday night, President Joe Biden declared an emergency in Texas and ordered federal assistance to aid state and local response efforts.

The extreme cold dips far into Texas with more than 60 daily record low temperatures on Monday and again on Tuesday in the central U.S., NBC meteorologist Janessa Webb said.

Records could be smashed by a couple of degrees, which is impressive for lows,” she added. “There will be slow improvement in the cold Wednesday through Friday. The cold is really concentrated in the middle of the country, with the coasts being no more than 5-10 degrees below average.

Webb said Dallas and Houston will stay under winter storm warnings until Monday night, with snow accumulations of up to 4 inches and 2 inches respectively.

Texas governor Greg Abbott, along with Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt and Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, have activated National Guard units to assist state agencies with tasks including rescuing stranded drivers.

Winter storm warnings will be in effect until Tuesday in Memphis, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Cleveland, which will see up to 12 inches of snow.

Be ready for the big freeze! That is actually breaking records around the world.

Relentless wintry weather to bombard much of US into next week with a new winter storm every 2-3 days


arctic blast usa february 2021 Relentless wintry weather to bombard much of US into next week. Picture via hailpoint.com

Meteorologists warn that one of the busiest winter weather patterns in decades will continue to bombard much of the nation with a host of impacts into next week.

Several weather systems are lining up with the likelihood to bring more snow and ice to the Midwest and Northeast through the end of next week.

Winter storm every 2-3 days

Winter storms could arrive every two to three days amid the tumultuous pattern, which is due in part to a major buckling of the jet stream. The river of high winds aloft plunged southward over the central United States then swung up along the Atlantic coast in recent days, setting the path for storms to ride along. That active storm track will be fueled by the collision of Arctic air sprawling across the middle of the nation and milder air holding its ground in the Southeast.

Two systems will come into play during the next storm late this week into this weekend, including on Valentine’s Day in the Northeast.

One storm was already sweeping across Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and northern Kansas with light to moderate snow on Friday. This storm and its snow will continue to shift eastward across the Midwest during Friday night and Saturday.

Meanwhile, a secondary storm is expected to push northward up the Eastern Seaboard this weekend.

Multiple storms can be seen across the United States on this satellite image taken on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021. One storm lingered over the Southeast states as a storm pushed from the Rockies to the central Plains. A third storm can be seen along the Pacific coast in the Northwest. (CIRA at Colorado State/GOES-East)

Both weekend systems are forecast to remain weak with the snow portion of the precipitation on the nuisance end of the spectrum,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist John Feerick said. “But even a light amount of snow and especially a thin coating of ice can lead to dangerous travel conditions.

Look how cool freezing temperatures can be:

In general, 1-3 inches of snow is expected from eastern Wyoming to the to the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, but heavier amounts of 3-6 inches will occur across eastern Wyoming, southwestern South Dakota and Nebraska, where up to 8 inches are predicted.

Chicago is another spot where heavier snow on the order of 3-6 inches can occur from Friday night to Saturday due some enhancement from Lake Michigan,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Courtney Travis said.

A few additional pockets of 3-6 inches of snow can develop around the Great Lakes as well.

The snow in this 1,500-mile-long swath will be light and fluffy due to the Arctic air in place. This type of snow can be highly subject to blowing and drifting in a mere breeze amid the frigid conditions.

Farther to the east, most of the moisture associated with the storm pushing northward along the Atlantic Seaboard may stay out to sea.

Snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected from part of northern Virginia to Maine Saturday into Sunday, but as with any storm, pockets of somewhat heavier snow can develop with the risk of a few places ending up with 3-6 inches.

Snow over much of this zone may be intermittent, where the rate of snow varies and even stops for a time,” AccuWeather Senior Storm Warning Meteorologist Brian Wimer said.

Milder air will cause a wintry mix that includes some ice to develop from portions of middle Tennessee to southern Ohio and southwestern West Virginia as well as from northwestern North Carolina to much of Virginia. The icy mix will expand over the Interstate-95 corridor and coastal areas of the East from central Maryland to southeastern New England.

Some areas struck by a major ice storm that cut power and led to treacherous travel late this week could once again get more ice from this storm.

Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Pittsburgh and Boston are in the zone where a wintry or icy mix is forecast from Saturday to Sunday.

There is a risk of 0.25 to 0.50 of an inch of ice to build up in parts of Virginia and West Virginia with the storm this weekend,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Randy Adkins said.


“If that amount of freezing rain occurs, then trees and power lines may be coming down,” Adkins added.

As the storm finishes up in New England on Sunday, the next winter storm will already be producing a large swath of snow over portions of Texas a.... That storm is then forecast to head northeastward next week.

A light wintry mix, including some ice, is likely to persist from southern New England to the southern Appalachians and Piedmont areas of the Southeast from Sunday into Monday. That will occur even after the weak storm pair leaves the East ahead of the next storm’s arrival.

This means that icy conditions may continue in between storms from part of the interior South to the Northeast states this weekend into early next week,” AccuWeather Lead Storm Warning Meteorologist Joe Bauer said.

This light precipitation can be every bit as dangerous to drive and walk on as a major storm, and motorists and pedestrians should be on the lookout,” Bauer added. you remember?

Since that south-central U.S. storm system is likely to be stronger than the weekend system, heavier precipitation, including snow and ice, is expected to unfold. However, it may be a complex setup with not just a snow or rain scenario.

Over a large part of the mid-Atlantic and New England regions, only a shallow layer of cold air may be in place. That means that a period of sleet and freezing rain is more likely, instead of just rain or snow.

A change to plain rain is most likely along much of the I-95 corridor, but precipitation is likely to start out as a period of ice at the onset in the mid-Atlantic and across southern New England, according to Rayno.

There could be significant icing from parts of eastern West Virginia and northern Virginia to portions of northern Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York state and central and southeastern New England Monday night into Tuesday,” Rayno said, adding that the biggest snowfall would likely occur north of the New York State Thruway and into parts of northern New England.

The storm predicted to shift northeastward from the South Central states will be weakening as it moves into the Ohio Valley on Monday night. Cold air may put up more of a fight in the Northeast as a result.

Should the layer of cold air be deeper as the secondary storm develops along the coast, then snow may fall farther to the south in the Northeast states. Precipitation could change from ice or rain to snow along part of I-95 on Tuesday in that case.

Buckle up!” Rayno said, “because this will be a busy weather pattern right into next week. And there could be another weather system we’re tracking from the Northwest to the South Central states during the middle to latter part of next week.

In a case of atmospheric deja vu, yet another storm may dip southward over the Central states with snow and ice during the middle of next week, grab Gulf of Mexico moisture and head northeastward later next week.

So yes, the weather is going crazy in the US, and actually in most parts of the world.

Record cold temperatures hit Canadian Prairies

Record cold temperatures hit Canadian Prairies

Polar vortex continues to bring piercing cold to the Canadian Prairies -- Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta -- since Sunday, February 7, 2021. According to Environment Canada, 22 cold weather records were smashed throughout the three provinces, while the Northwest Territories recorded the coldest temperature for the whole country in nearly four years with -51.9 °C (-61.4 °F).

On Sunday, the coldest temperature was in Uranium City, where the mercury hit -48.9 °C (-56 °F), breaking the previous record of -40 °C (-40 °F) set in 2019.

In Alberta, the coldest temperature was in Fort Chipewyan, where the mercury plummeted to -47.3 °C (-53.1 °F), smashing the past record of -45.6 °C (-50 °F) in 1936.

Edmonton International Airport was close to setting a daily temperature record with -43.8 °C (-46.8 °F). The previous record set on the same day was -43.9 °C (-47 °F) set in 1994.

In Manitoba, the Roblin community set a new record of -42 °C (-43.6 °F), beating the past record of -40.6 °C (-41.08 °F) in 1972.

Canada also logged its coldest temperature in almost four years as the Northwest Territories confirmed a reading of -51.9 °C (-61.4 °F).

Environment Canada meteorologist Terri Lang told CTVNews that the last time such cold temperatures were recorded in Canada was in March 2017, when the mercury hit -54.7 °C (-66.5 °F) in Mould Bay.

"The spinning up of the cold air up around the North Pole deepens and strengthens in the winter because of the lack of sunshine," said Lang. The polar vortex contains Arctic air that sits over the poles for most of the winter, which falls into Canada when the weather systems break down heading into spring.

"Across [the] Prairies, we're just getting some of that cold air that's coming down because the jet stream has looped far enough south. This is what happens every winter, and it’s what gives Canada its cold weather."

"It's going to be here for a while," Lang added. "Once that really deep, cold air settles in, it's kind of hard to move out. It's very dense, it's very heavy, so it's really hard to get it out of there."

The remnants of the polar vortex will stay between Alberta and Manitoba for the week and then move into some regions of British Columbia as the wind chill makes the weather even colder.

Major snowstorm hits Netherlands, Germany and UK


Major snowstorm hits Netherlands, Germany and UK




Dutch authorities declared a rare 'code red' emergency for the entire country on Sunday, February 7, 2021, as a severe snowstorm, named Darcy by their meteorologists, hit parts of western Europe. This was the first major snowstorm to hit the Netherlands since January 2010. The storm also affected parts of Germany, disrupting road, rail, and air traffic, and the United Kingdom. Dozens of people were injured, with some of them severely. 

  • While the stormy weather will end today and tomorrow, most of Europe is now in for a significant cold outbreak.
  • If models prove right, the cold will last through the end of February. This prolonged cold outbreak is associated with the Sudden Stratospheric Warming event in early January 2021 and the subsequent breakdown of the polar vortex.

Darcy dropped temperatures to -5 °C (23 °F) on Sunday and brought heavy snow to the region.

Most of the Netherlands received from 5 to 10 cm (2 - 4 inches) of snow, and locally up to 30 cm (12 inches) or more.

Eindhoven airport in the country's south was shut down while Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport delayed or canceled dozens of flights.

All trains were canceled in the country, including international services to Germany, France24 reports. At least 80 car accidents were reported on Sunday alone.

The German Weather Service (DWD) issued an extreme weather warning ahead of the storm, saying emergency crews across the country have been put on standby.

Darcy brought dense snowdrifts and limited visibility, causing major disruptions in parts of the country, including Hamburg and Hanover.

The city of Muenster was among the hardest-hit places with so much snow on the streets that ambulances could no longer drive.

Police officials said hundreds of accidents took place on German roads on Sunday. In North Rhine-Westphalia, a total of 222 car accidents were registered since Saturday. 

Police in NRW closed several motorways after they froze and turned into an ice rink.

DWD issued its highest warnings for parts of NRW, Lower Saxony, and Saxony-Anhalt. Black ice was also forecast for parts of NRW, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate, Thuringia, and Saxony.

The country saw up to 30 cm (12 inches) with up to 40 cm (16 inches) expected in northern regions overnight Monday, February 8.

Darcy also brought strong winds and snow to southeast England on Sunday.

The UK Met Office has issued amber weather warnings for snow, suggesting widespread travel disruptions and possible power cuts in parts of London, the east and south-east of England, for Sunday and Monday morning.

Most of Europe is in for a significant cold, and heavy snow in parts of the continent, in the days ahead. If models prove right, the cold will last through the end of February.

Widespread overnight frosts are expected, with freezing temperatures expected during the daytime, too.

Mongolia is in the grip of one of its most extreme winters on record, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), with temperatures forecast to plunge to -50 °C (-58 °F). The severe cold has killed more than 500 camels in the central region, threatening livestock and leaving many herder families vulnerable.

The extreme weather, called dzud, threatens the livelihoods and health of thousands of Mongolian herders residing in the country's remote provinces.

As a pre-emptive action, the Mongolian Red Cross Society (MRCS) has sent financial assistance and livestock nutrition kits in target areas to help them in meeting their needs, as well as to save their livestock-- the main source of livelihoods for Mongolians.

On January 12, 2021, local media reported that the frigid temperatures killed more than 500 Bactrian camels in the central province of Uvurkhangai.

"The camel is said to be the most tolerant livestock of dzud and drought. However, even camels are dying in our soum this winter," an elder herder said at a meeting between authorities and herders.

Local herdsmen added that dozens of small livestock animals have been perishing almost every day.
