Hmmm... Did any of the forecasts made at, say, the end of Summer 2019 predict the unusual(?) cold as far south as Memphis from mid-October into all of November so far?
The Paducah NWS posted the particularly impressive record low high for the day Nov. 12, 2019 of 26 deg. F (old record 36 deg. F) at Paducah, KY, and 25 deg. F (old record 39 deg. F — 14 deg. colder!!) at Cape Girardeau, MO.
14 degrees colder: That’s not a record broken, that’s a record annihilated!*
Further, it appears tomorrow will be the 1st day of temps in that region not below average since late October. Paducah NWS also headlined the snow and cold of Nov. 11 - 13 as rare, but then in their text conceded that this was the 3rd significant November snowfall in the last 6 years.
*Reports at other NWS offices in the region were similar, but I found none quite THAT extreme. (14 degree differential.) I could have easily missed such, though.)
My recollection (and utility bills) indicate a trend in the mid-South USA toward unusual cold from mid-October through December, but unusual warmth in late winter & early spring. Abrupt swings from warm early fall weather** to cold weather from mid-Oct. to Dec. seem to be getting more common, and “Indian Summer” seems to be getting rarer.
What this means globally is fairly insignificant, of course, and to be thorough, I would add a “**”:
**This year in particular, we went from downright HOT in Sept. and early Oct., then cold after that. Often in the past we’ve gone 2 Fall months or more with no AC and minimal heat - maybe just when getting up in the morning. This year it went from AC on to heat on most of the day, if not all day, in the span of a couple days, and it has stayed cool / cold.
But like a conspiracy theory that will not die, it seems every negative or strange thing that can by attributed to Anthropogenic Climate Change (ACC), will be.
This is the real "global warming" that men ought to fear,
And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Revelation 16:8-9)
