October Cool-Down In Ireland, France…Analysts: “Already Straining Natural Gas Supplies” For Europe!

Cooling October trend. And read below why Europe maybe facing a winter from hell. 

Global warming is supposed to mean warmer autumns and milder winters, and thus we should expect a warming trend for October.

Today we look at the latest October data now available from the Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA) for France, and Ireland.

20 years of October data in France

First we plot the mean temperature data for the 14 surface stations in France for which the JMA has sufficient (untampered) data – going back to 2000:

Data source: JMA.

As the above chart shows, 8 of the 14 stations plotted show no warming or cooling for October. Like in other regions over the northern hemisphere, autumn in France appears not to have warmed at all since 2000.

Ireland –  26 years of October cooling

Next we plot the October mean temperature for the stations in Ireland going back 26 years, also for which the JMA has sufficient data.

Due to its location in the Northeast Atlantic and its rural characteristics, Ireland so can tell us what’s really happening:

. Data source: JMA.

All seven stations in Ireland show cooling or almost flat trends. None have been warming in October.

“Europe’s first winter cold spell already straining natural gas supplies”

So reports World Oil here.

Unless leaders get real with the energy supply problems. Europeans could be looking at a winter from hell.

Temperatures are set to drop starting across Europe next week as a high pressure system could also bring colder air flows over central and southern Europe by the end of the month, according to meteorological simulations.

“The region will be particularly sensitive to cold snaps in the coming months, with gas prices up for a second week after surging to records in October,” reports World Oil here. “The arrival of cold weather in Europe would follow freezing temperatures and snow in China, the world’s biggest energy consumer. Higher heating demand could intensify the already fierce battle for liquefied natural gas cargoes, with prices for flexible U.S. LNG still more attractive in Asia.”

This is childs play. I have the biggest deicing company in Europe as a client. One of the great things about this May analog package for December is it works in Europe, since almost all the time it is cold in Europe if its cold in the US. In fact in patterns like what you are seeing develop now, which is line with the 14 May analog/high impact hurricane season blend we have been showing on weatherbell.com since back in May, very often it gets coolder in Europe first. I would love to get in front of people and show how this works ( the warm analog low impact hurricane season yields warms Decembers). In any case from when I was at Penn State western Europe and the far east were always places that we looked at to telegraph US weather ( which btw if Dr Mann understood that he would understand why you cant just have “local” warm areas as is his claim for the medieval warm period, there are no independent warm areas on the globe as if one area gets warm it triggers response in other areas, or is a product of what is going on) But then again he does not forecast and he was not at PSU when I was. So look at what is going on in europe and what is coming. That positive in Iceland back to Greenland as it backs means the attack usually evolves so the US gets hammered. But this is a known response in years when one has High amplitude spring MJOs’. cool US Mays, high impact hurricane seasons, then very warm Octobers. the analog years we identified in May ( and you had to have the high impact hurricane season on NAMER so it involved that forecast being right). were 1950,1954,1955,1960,1969,1979,1985,1989,1995,1996,1998,1999,2003,2004,2005,2008,2010,2017,2020 If you want to read a July 7th issuance on this for the public Here it is. so you can see how this pattern that you are seeing was dissected. https://www.cfact.org/2021/07/09/if-only-i-believed-man-was-the-reason/

obviously, you can’t use it every year but I have 14 analogs ( now 15 given last May the hurricane season, and October) and 10 antilogs. which are great tools also. Then again no team calls the same play every time. BTW we had a huge. and I mean huge climate signal and what I call a daisy ( its what I am shooting out of my toy gun on the cover of my book, climate daisies the events that are positive). The almost total shutdown on a GLOBAL scale of tropical cyclone production in October thru now is mind boggling. one thing for the Atlantic to shut down but the wpac with only 1 landfalling typhoon hit this year is tHE BIGGEST CLIMATE STORY imo ( I am partial to the tropics obviously as I believe tropical inputs rule the climate and weather..I am my fathers son and he was always pushing that). Peace out

Agreed. My favorite metric is glaciers. They expand and shrink at pretty much the same times all over the globe.

It’s like the alarmists say whatever they need to prop up their theory, almost in the face of zero supporting evidence. (A real expert can always find some evidence to support her theory, no matter how crazy it is.)

Now there you go again, Joe, using historical data and facts. The wokeunistas are going to be very cross with you. Yet again. Or is it still? Since they are continually cross with everybody about everything I guess it qualifies as still.

Here in western PA we are getting a little warm up, which inevitably will lead to cold and snow. Hopefully. Tired of all our snow going to other places!

An absence of tropical activity would be a by product of back to back La Ninas which, by my hypothesis, results from wavier jet stream tracks and more clouds reducing solar input to the oceans.
That will mean less warmth moving from equator to poles in air and water so the Polar cold pools at the surface will increase in size and intensity.
The recent record cold in Antarctica is evidence of that happening.
In Western Europe thus far the persistent high pressure blocking (solar induced in my opinion) just to the West of UK has prevented oceanic warm air from flowing into northern Eurasia which has led to severe early Chinese snowfalls and much of Russia already covered. The increase in ice in the Barents Sea region is a result of that.
It has been a bit milder than usual in Western Europe because the polar air is more to the East.
With the quiet sun encouraging blocking of the merifional flows in the atmosphere the position of the high pressure cells becomes critical and I suspect that the dominant such cell near the UK at present will move towards Iceland or Greenland and direct persistent cold down across Europe and Asia leading to a more severe winter than seen for many years.
No guarantee because we do not know all the natural forcing elements but it surely is not down to our emissions.

A sudden decrease in hurricane/cyclone production could explain why there was a minor uptick in global temperatures back in Sept/Oct. Hurricanes transport a HUGE amount of heat from the oceans to space.

Well, I don’t know if it means anything or not, but I checked my own October records (8 miles south of WI/IL state line, 5 miles west of Lake Michigan) and we had a wet, very chilly and gray October that got wetter and chillier as the month progressed. In fact, for most of the summer, my AO was sloppy and chilly with occasional bouts of sunshine and warmth, and it seems to be heading toward early cold weather. Photos from last year show the same thing, but less rain and some snow in October.
We seem to be heading toward an early winter again this year.
I don’t know if this is relevant to your article or not, but I’ve been tracking weather for a long time. My sister lives in central Illinois and told me in October that her weather down there was also cold, wet and sloppy. Small local stuff may not seem significant, but if it’s widespread, like half the state, is it still small and local? I don’t think so.

Interestingly here in Western Australia our start to summer has been very cold and wet – we have exceeded our peak rainfall of 850mm (average going back over 50 years)
and if I use my Bees as a natural indicator
very low honey production and both hives have swarmed
This is the second year of La Nina and the second year of very low honey production in southern australia (Perth to Sydney)

low honey due to low flowering native bush, until just recently the flowering has been low and patchy

Not meaning to be pessimistic, but I think we may see more of this over the remains of this decade. Just a guess on my part. I look for insects like wild bees, honey-seeking wasps, and other nectar-feeders and the count seems to be down this year.

We are governed by scoundrels and imbeciles.
By Allan MacRae, B.A.Sc.(Eng.), M.Eng.
So here is my real concern:
IF the Sun does indeed drive temperature, as I suspect, Baroness Verma, then you and your colleagues on both sides of the House may have brewed the perfect storm.
You are claiming that global cooling will NOT happen, AND you have crippled your energy systems with excessive reliance on ineffective grid-connected “green energy” schemes.
I suggest that global cooling probably WILL happen within the next decade or sooner, and Britain will get colder.
I also suggest that the IPCC and the Met Office have NO track record of successful prediction (or “projection”) of global temperature and thus have no scientific credibility.
I suggest that Winter deaths will increase in the UK as cooling progresses.
I suggest that Excess Winter Mortality, the British rate of which is about double the rate in the Scandinavian countries, should provide an estimate of this unfolding tragedy.

Correction – there is NO GLOBAL WARMING EMERGENCY, which is the proper term for the warmist loonatics “climate emergency”.

I only have a few UK farmers for clients, I had predicted an early cold spell from around Nov 25th to around Dec 7th. I have also predicted notable late cold spells, from around Jan 27th for 3 weeks, and from around Feb 28th for 3 weeks. The predicted March cold shows in the [sometimes useful] 179.05 years back heliocentric analogue in Feb 1843:

The late cold would be at the worst time for UK and European gas storage levels.

November 17, 2021 6:21 am

There is currently no gas shortage in Europe – but there are very high prices.

and it isn’t any cooler than usual in Europe this time of year -in fact as is usual these days it is warm for time of year in the UK.

Griffy, you are completely delusional. What on earth do you think is driving the high prices up across Europe? Wishful thinking? If there was a glut of gas then the prices would’ve dropped. As it is there is a shortage – most countries are using gas reserves now and waiting for deliveries from anywhere they can get them. The market in China being favourable for US gas exports has meant that the majority of those are going to China rather than Europe, which is now having to rely on occasionally diverted ships and Russian gas supplies. As to current temperatures – they have become noticeably cooler outside of the big UK towns and cities (I can only assume you are living in a city if you think it’s still warm) and look set to drop much further before the end of November.

The UK/Eurozone isn’t the only place having below-average temps. I track those in my area and check other areas to find out if the below-average temps are widespread, and this year, as well as last year, they ARE consistently below normal for this season (Autumn). Also, there’s blizzard warnings now to the north of me, on the radar weather map.

Winter does not actually start up here until mid-December, griffy, you silly person.

“Typically gas storage sites are replenished in the summer when demand and prices are lower, but this year high prices meant less was sent to storage sites and owners with gas in storage have been keen to hang on to it in case demand and prices rise even more, leaving Europe facing winter with lower stocks than usual.”

“The record prices being paid by suppliers in Europe and shortfalls in gas supply across the continent have stoked fears of an energy crisis should the weather be even marginally colder than normal.”

And in response to griff’s frequent assertion that the rise in the price of natural gas has nothing to do with renewables, the Financial Times says:

“The transition to cleaner energy such as wind and solar has had the effect of pushing up demand for gas — often viewed by the industry as a medium-term “bridging fuel” between the eras of hydrocarbons and renewables. But the long-term target of creating net zero economies in the UK and Europe has also sapped investors’ willingness to put money into developing supplies of a fossil fuel they believe could be largely obsolete in 30 years. Meanwhile, Europe’s domestic gas supplies, run low by decades of rapid development, have declined by 30 per cent in the past decade.”

The highest prices in the world, and the biggest price increase evah in Germany. To top this the German Net Agency just put Nordsteam 2 on ICE, with Belarus threatening a pipeline shutdown (a taste of what means with a maintenance shutdown right now). And what does the war party do – more Belarus sanctions!
All of this to distract from the utter failure of FLOP26!

So the UK readies 600 troops for Ukraine and Poland, Brexit be-damned!

With all this war-noise it really does not matter what climatologists say

Meanwhile Macron called Putin, Merkel called Lukashenko and Biden called XI. The war-party is having a fit because of these 3 simultaneous calls.

And by the way, there is no fossil fuel shortage – prices are a direct result of spot-pricing, futures, in other words paper fuel. All fueled by liquidity pumping over months. The usual quackenomic mantra that it is supply-and-demand is simply bankster-speak.

In September 2019, the Dutch government announced a further acceleration of the decommissioning of the Groningen gas (10th largest in the world) field, stopping all regular production in 2022, so that has an artificial shortage effect.

Actually griff is in this case almost correct.
At the moment there is enough gas, as its high price indicates tightness of supply, and has resulted in a move to other fuels for those that can.
And it isn’t cooler in the UK than usual., Its about the same as it always is.
What is missing is large equinoctial storms. We had a couple, but there are usually more. And wind has been low.

to get through 16hrs of no/low solar PV output, one of course needs (16/4=) 4x fully charged banks to use in succession. If you want to charge those using solar PV you then need 4x solar PV farms.

Holy Moses!

We are told we can’t criticize climate science because we aren’t climate scientists. The trouble is that climate scientists, as a group, misuse tools that they don’t adequately understand.

What McKitrick has shown is that studies, purporting to prove that global warming is caused by humans, are bunk. His work is published in a peer reviewed climate journal. It looks bullet-proof.

My favorite comment in the video is that climate scientists are going to have difficulty understanding McKitrick’s paper because it involves matrix algebra.

This has been covered on WUWT, but somehow I managed to miss it. So, thanks TEWS_Pilot for the link to McKitrick’s presentation.

There is no unprecedented warming today.

The world is spending Trillions of dollars on climate change based solely on the word of dishonest people, who won’t show us how they reached their conclusions. It’s ridiculous.

Which is really quite interesting because looking at them over a full year, the ones on the Western side of England are falling while the Eastern ones are rising.

People’s heads are being filled with lies by “journalists” and as long as that is allowed to continue we are all well and truly screwed.

According to UKMO, Northern Ireland its warmest October since 2007 this year; its 11th warmest October on record, which starts in 1885.

And UAH has already had its global October values published on this very site. Temperatures were well above average both globally and in the N hemisphere. In UAH NoExt-land, the region in which both France and Ireland exist, temps were +0 75C above average for October, making it the warmest NoExt- land October on record!

“Nth warmest on record” is classic misleading statistical soundbiting, a true statement, but hides the fact that temperatures have been in stasis in the region for around 20 years. When a walker is on top of a hill every step is one of the highest on record.

Shall I point out an interesting little item in the Ireland record posted above (which by the way is an unadjusted temperature record) – there are 3 airport temperature stations in there. Now, by and large, I don’t trust the temperature records from airport stations – they’re fine for landing aircraft but they’re usually warmer than normal due to their close proximity to acres of tarmac, concrete and hot aircraft exhaust. And still they show a cooling trend, now don’t you just really find that interesting?

I rest my case.
Seriously – what is that supposed to prove? All airport temperature sensors have to be located as close as possible to or on the runways in order to give pilots the most accurate temperature data as they land or take off. This makes them excellent for that purpose but completely compromised for general temperature data – surrounded by tarmac and concrete and repeatedly exposed to hot aircraft exhaust is the worst environment for objective and accurate temperature data. You might as well put a temperature station inside a shopping mall instead. Airport temperature stations should be removed completely from the network of weather stations.

Thanks for this somewhat Pavlovian reply!

If at least you would have understood what the comparison between Anchorage and Kenai really means…

No chance. You are so totally fixated on your anti-warming narrative that you don’t even manage to grasp simplest things.

Namely that Anchorage and Kenai

  • while differing in absolute temperatures by up to 7 °C,
  • nonetheless show similar departures from the same reference period,
  • though the one is near tarmac, jet exhausts etc etc, and
  • the other is outside of all warming sources.

All that making your superficial, aggressive claim completely baseless.

Your unscientific blah blah against airport-based weather stations is of the same vein as the UHI discussion, which ended some years ago with the pseudoskeptic nonsense that ‘then, all station locations are infested by UHI, regardless where they are’.

But people like you manifestly are not busy with science and technique: they are busy in politics.

You are obfuscating the fact that anomalies are supposed to measure the temperature difference caused by CO2. What you are trying to use for cover is that anomalies look the same. UHI artificially raises Tmax making the whole temperature curve non-normal.

If you want to prove CO2 warming, you must use stations never affected by UHI. IOW, stations that have been and still are rural.

When will you finally stop talking about anomaly computations with a trial to correlate temperature and CO2 increase?

You are obfuscating the fact that anomalies are supposed to measure the temperature difference caused by CO2.

That is completely ridiculous. I didn’t write anything concerning that correlation, and have no interest at all to talk about it.

What you are trying to use for cover is that anomalies look the same.

I don’t cover anything: I simply show how stations located in completely different contexts

  • a highly UHI-suspected airport
  • a National Wildlife Refuge

show, with respect to the same reference period, similar departures from their mean.

UHI artificially raises Tmax making the whole temperature curve non-normal.

What a nonsense!

The contrary is the case: UHI artificially raises TMIN.

But since you, unlike me, very probably never processed any temperature time series like CLIMAT, METEOSTAT, GHCN V3, daily, V4, USHCN or USCRN etc etc, you don’t know anything of what you talk about.

FYI, here is a graph comparing Anchorage and Kenai on the basis of the absoulte temperatures:

My conclusion is that claiming to know that anomalies prior to 1980 can be determined to 1/100th of degree is pure malarkey. Those temps were recorded with integer values.

What is being contradicted is that CO2 is a control knob. CO2 is at its highest level but temps can only reach the 5th, or 3rd highest? Every graph you guys show has CO2 and temps in lock step, what happens when they fall out of that lockstep? Does the correlation fail? Without correlation, there can be no casual relationship.

I can tell you a few more interesting things.

  • Over the last few weeks net flow of electricity from continental UK to Britain and from Britain to Ireland has reversed.
  • Britain is burning coal, wood and almost anything in preference to (now expensive) gas.
  • My heating oil is 50% more expensive than the last time I filled up.
  • Germany has got sniffy about the Nordstream pipeline from Russia.
  • Rolls Royce has submitted its small modular reactor design for approval by the Office of Nuclear Regulation.
  • The US Natrium reactor test build is going ahead in Wyoming..

Since the whole ‘Climate Change’ meme has had zero impact on the climate, but a massive impact on energy supply, it looks like the days of renewables are finally numbered.

I don’t care what nonsense people believe in as long as they do the right things. Windmills and solar panels are not the right things. Nor is Russian gas. It doesn’t feel particularly like a hard winter is coming here in UK, biut I hope it does. It might be a ‘tipping point’ ,not in climate, but in public consciousness :0-)

“Global warming is supposed to mean warmer autumns and milder winters, and thus we should expect a warming trend for October”.

We do – when averaged over the globe. (area of France 0.107%, area of Ireland 0.014%).

But given the complex nature of the climate system with energy movement of ocean currents and air masses, there will always be zones where the waves added and the waves subtracted (as in wave theory).
I know why that’s a difficult concept here as we have to keep alive that the world’s not warming – at least not due to mankind.
But really it’s just basic common-sense and a reality in all aspects of a complex system’s evolution under a sustained forcing
Just like the GMST does not rise monotonously – that is also reflected in temporal variations in local deltaT.

Here series of maps comparing global 1961-1990 base Octobers/Autumns with the 1995 to 2021 period, cherry-picked for an insignificant portion of the global (to presumably) deny that the whole globe is not warming in Autumns/Octobers …..

I have been working on maths problems for many years with a special interest [fixation] on Fermat’s theorem.

That is no two positive integers to a power of 3 or greater can ever form a third integer to that same power.

The answer, which would fit in the margins of a book as Fermat proposed is as follows
“The sum of two cubes is 2 identical cubes plus a gap
When the sum is a cube and the gap is a cube the first cube has to be two identical cubes
Yet two identical cubes can never be a cube.
Therefore the first cube can never be a cube if the gap and sum are cubes.
Only a non cube can add to a cube to make a cube
This proof applies to all powers 3 or greater.”

I hope you do not mind me tucking it into your blog.
If it proves reasonable with no flaws please let me know.

Did you?
Perhaps you could explain it to us in three sentences, Bindidon.

I have read Singh’s book.
To me the problem is that Wiles did a circularity proof which might not have proved anything properly .
That is, he proved that if a certain theory was right then his proof had to be right.
If his theory was right then the certain theory had to be right.
Not exactly the right way to be doing it.
If he was right, then why take a hundred pages to explain a proof I can deliver in 3 sentences?

Many thanks to both you and ATTP to be taking an interest.
Did you read what I have just said.
Apparently it is very easy to disprove claims of Fermat .
Most attempts end up in the circular reasoning sea.
I have added a n observation re double cubes and double powers that creates a simple proof, I hope.
Pleas explain where it is wrong as it surely should be wrong.

“Together, the two papers which contain the proof are 129 pages long,[4][5] and consumed over seven years of Wiles’s research time. John Coates described the proof as one of the highest achievements of number theory, and John Conway called it “the proof of the [20th] century.”[6] Wiles’s path to proving Fermat’s Last Theorem, by way of proving the modularity theorem for the special case of semistable elliptic curves.”
I have spent 30 years intermittently on this, stopping for a while after Wiles “proof”
Fermat wanted a proof to fit in the margin of a book .
This appears to be the case with my approach.

Reply to  angech
November 21, 2021 8:19 pm

I was able to discuss perceived issues at a couple of other sites.

The solution seems robust?

Cubes are numbers to the third power.

This means there are 3 multiplications of the numerator.

If the numerator is a prime number there can only be one cube for that prime number.

When you add two cubes together you get a sum of the cubes.

1,8,27, 64,125, 216, 343, 512, 729, 1000.

The gaps between the cubes are

7,19,37, 61,91, 127, 169, 217, 271.

Of interest, mathematically, every gap is composed of multiples of 6 plus an additional 1

6, 18, 60, 90, 126, 168, 216, 270.

which is the triangular sequence

1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45,

When two cubes are added together the second larger cube must always incorporate the first cube.

The gap between the two cubes will always be the sum of the known gaps between the cubes.

Serendipitously this always allows the sum of the cubes to be two identical cubes plus the known gap.

A cube can only add to a gap that is a cube if it is to make another cube.

The gap cannot be a cube but is not directly provable.

The largest cube cannot be a cube but this is not directly provable.

However when the gap is a cube and the sum is a cube the First cube has to be able to break down into two identical cubes.

This is known to be impossible from time immemorial.

Because the two identical cubes would add a single 2 to the new cube, becoming the irrational cube root of two.

Which as I stated above makes it impossible for any two cubes [or greater powers] to form a new cube or greater power.

This holds true for all other powers of numbers as well for the same reason.

As said, the aim of everyone working on this problem was to prove that the gap cannot be a cube when the sum is a cube.

Which leads to the circular arguments that stopped it being solved.

What they did not do was consider that the first term might be the problem.

The only small cube that can add to a larger cube to make a cube also needs to be a double of a cube.

No doubles of a cube can make a cube [or larger power].

Hence the Fermat equation [below] is proven to be impossible.

“X^n + Y^n = Z^n has no solution with X, Y, Z, and n all integers and n>2.

2A^3 +B^3 cannot = C^3 as 2A^3 cannot= a cube

Hopefully that would suffice.

It is even simpler than my 54 word explanation.

[QUOTE FROM ARTICLE] “Temperatures are set to drop starting across Europe next week as a high pressure system could also bring colder air flows over central and southern Europe by the end of the month, according to meteorological simulations.”

I lived in France from 1985 through 1995, and most of the winters there at that time were cloudy (foggy or rainy) but relatively mild. In the Paris area, one rarely sees the sun between mid-November and mid-February, either due to frequent storms bringing Atlantic moisture over northern France, or sometimes the Azores anticyclone moving up from the southwest. During such anticyclones, the high moisture level tends to condense out as a cloud level about 1,000 to 2,000 feet above the ground, which can persist all day due to the very low sun angles in late autumn and winter (about 8 to 9 hours of daylight).

Occasionally, a strong anticyclone sets up over Scandinavia, bringing strong winds out of the northeast (from Russia) to northern Europe. If this occurs in winter, the warming influence of the Gulf Stream is cut off, and cold Arctic air streams in, usually under clear skies, which allow heat to radiate away during the long winter nights, while the low sun angles do not provide much daytime warming.

One such anticyclone affected the 1994 Winter Olympic games, held in Lillehammer, Norway. The first few days had typical Norwegian weather, snowy with temperatures slightly below freezing, but when the anticyclone moved in, temperatures plunged to around -30 C, and cross-country skiers started dropping out of races due to long exposure to the extreme cold, despite the unusually bright sunshine.

People tend to forget that Paris is at about the same latitude as Quebec City or Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, both known for brutally cold winters. If a cold anticyclone sets up over Scandinavia and blocks the Gulf Stream, Paris in winter can be just as cold as Canada.
