BIG EXTREME FROSTS SUMMARY: Temperature records from Europe and Northern Hemisphere during the first half of the peak of Winter 2020/2021




Extreme frosts across Northern Hemisphere are coming thanks to extremely anomalous Major SSW event and strong atmospheric blocking of the Winter 2020/2021.

This process has started already in late December 2020, when above Monoglia was reported the strongest air pressure on the Earth ever, 1094,3 hPa /https://mkweather.com/2021/01/01/10943-hpa-mongolia-with-the-highest-measured-air-pressure-on-earth-in-history// and the deepest Aleutian (extratropical) low in all-time Earth history, 921 hPa /https://mkweather.com/2021/01/01/the-most-broken-circulation-on-earth-in-history-aleutian-low-921-hpa-equal-to-a-category-5-hurricane-deepest-within-all-time-records//.

Now, Mkweather is bringing a big summary of all temperature records across Northern Hemisphere between 25. December 2020 and 14. January 2021 (3 weeks such as the first half of peak of the Winter 2020/2021 /next 3 cold weeks are forecasted/).

It appears that the coldest times are only coming, therefore stay watch weather with us furthermore!
