Israel continues to live through the winter storm, which has been given the name "Elpis", accompanied by snowfall in mountainous areas. The day before, snow fell in Jerusalem and a stable snow cover about 20 cm thick formed over a large area.

Mountainous areas in the north and in the center of Israel are covered with snow. Heavy snowfall continues on Mount Hermon (resort closed to visitors and will be closed tomorrow). It is also snowing on other peaks of the Golan Heights and the Upper Galilee. The day before, snow fell on the Hebron highlands, in Gush Etzion and in some parts of Samaria.

And that's not all either. A snowstorm also covered the state of Oman, which is located on the Arabian Peninsula.

This seems to a mistake - see comment under post. Apparently temperature in Oman is about 20C. Likely referring to the situation in Amman, Jordan.
Yes, the video is probably wrong. At least I searched for the truth for a long time, but found nothing. My google translate confuses Oman/Amman when translating to Arabic.

At the same time, this news says that there was already snow in Oman on January 9 (in the highlands Jebel Akhdar ) - https://www.thenationalnews.com/gulf-news/oman/2022/01/09/oman-feels-like- switzerland-as-early-snow-draws-crowds-to-mountains/

Heavy snow with blizzard conditions, severe gusty winds, and coastal hazards are quite possible from North Carolina to New England, with the most significant impacts expected in eastern New England where the Nor’Easter will be the strongest and also travel very near the coast.

This Thursday, the cold is spread across a large part of the country. The large pool of extremely cold Arctic air is advancing across the Great Lakes towards the Northeast U.S. from central Canada. Temperatures are even below -10 °F in places across New England. Northwesterly winds are making the cold even worse, especially across the upper Midwest and the Lakes.

polar-vortex-2022-noreaster-winter-storm-bomb-cyclone-canada-united-states-temperature

The bitter cold pool will intensity further through Friday and spread across the East Coast, reaching far south across the Southeast, including the central Florida peninsula over the weekend. The upcoming days will be significantly colder than normal for the region.

The video animation below reveals the low-pressure system that is forecast to intensify off the East Coast late Friday into Saturday. Significant snowfall will accompany this Nor’Easter storm. The land impact strongly depends on the track of the storm, meaning the closer or more north it travels, the stronger effects will follow regarding winds, heavy snow, and blizzard hazards.


High winds impact could cause coastal flooding, including beach erosion, particularly along the New England coast.

The general weather pattern begins its change this Friday with a cold front surging across the Northeast U.S, bringing another south of frigid cold, Arctic air mass from Canada. Very low windchills will make it dangerous in places. But before we dig deeper into evolution details, let’s first learn what is the main cause and driving factor behind the most significant pattern changes in winter months, known as the Polar Vortex.

NOCTILUCENT OUTBURST--CONTINUED: Did the Tonga volcano cause an outburst of noctilucent clouds (NLCs)? The jury's still out. However, new data from NASA's AIM spacecraft confirm that something happened in the mesosphere. This 8-day movie shows NLCs blooming around the South Pole after the volcano erupted:​


NLCs are Earth’s highest clouds. They form when water vapor rises up from Earth to the edge of space where H2O molecules can stick to specks of meteor dust. NLCs are, literally, frosted meteor smoke.

On Jan. 15th, the Tonga volcano blasted a plume of ash, sulfurous aerosols and water vapor more than 55 km high, only 30 km below where NLCs form. In the days that followed the eruption, natural upwelling may have carried water vapor the rest of the way to the noctilucent zone.

Data from NASA’s Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) show that weather in the mesosphere (where NLCs are found) did indeed change days after the eruption. Temperatures dropped, and water vapor increased:​


Both changes boost noctilucent clouds. But was Tonga responsible? AIM/CIPS Principal Investigator Cora Randall can't help but wonder, saying, "it's speculative, but we're definitely scouring the data to find out." Stay tuned.​

In the video edited by the National Observatory of Athens / meteo.gr, we observe the large extent of the snow cover caused by the recent bad weather "Elpis" in the area of Viotia. According to satellite measurements, the area of snow cover in Boeotia and Attica exceeded 6,000,000 acres, ie about 85% of the total area of these two areas was covered with snow between January 24-28, 2022.

SUOMI-NPP satellite image, 01/28/2022 at 11:23 UTC: on average, the temperature decreases with altitude by 0.65°C every 100 meters. But sometimes this pattern is reversed. In the presence of an inversion layer, the temperature may increase with altitude. This inversion layer, which can be several hundred meters thick, then acts as a lid that traps fine particles and moisture. This is the case, today, over a large quarter of southwestern France overhung by a layer of low, dense and tenacious clouds.

Tomorrow: Saturday 29 Weak rains are sinking in the North and East. the sun resists in the southeast. The sky over the northern half is very cloudy to overcast all day.
Some rains circulate from Normandy to the Vosges then to Burgundy-Franche-Comté and to the north of Auvergne. They are very weak but can locally take on a freezing character on the heights. Thinnings resist from the south of Alsace to the Jura. In the South-West, after a gray start to the day, clearings are developing. However, locally the grayness can persist all day. From the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean to the south of the Massif Central and the Alps, the sun continues to prevail. On the wind side, the Mistral and Tramontana are very attenuated. On the other hand, a westerly wind picks up in the Channel and gives gusts of 60-70 km/h from Haute-Normandie to Hauts de France.

Early morning, we expect -3 to 1 degrees from the North-East to the South-West and in the Center-East, 2 to 6 degrees elsewhere and up to 6 to 9 degrees in Brittany and on the shores of the Mediterranean. The maximum reaches 4 to 7 degrees from the Massif Central in the North-East, 7 to 12 degrees elsewhere, up to 12 to 16 degrees in the South-East.


While part of the North and South-West experienced a very rainy start to the month of #janvier 2022, the weather remained very #sec in the Center and especially in the South-East. In the #BouchesduRhône , this month of January was the 3rd driest since 1959! Computer graphics: @meteofrance

Thermal waterfall in Toplita frozen for the first time in recent years

Updated: 28/01/2022

Thermal waterfall in Toplita, central Romania, frozen for the first time in recent years. Although this rarely happens, the recent negative temperatures during the night had led to the freezing of the thermal waterfall. Water curtains turned into unreal lacework.
A monument of nature, the Toplita thermal waterfall is a unique geological ecosystem, stretching over 500 square meters in the Mures river meadow.

Famous for its beauty, the waterfall was formed by limestone and travertine deposits, brought in by the thermo-mineral waters over hundreds of years.

The road to the waterfall is not easy at all, but tourists say that the stunning scenery created by the waterfall is worth the effort.

The Toplita thermal waterfall was declared a natural monument, a protected area of national interest and a biological and landscape nature reserve 22 years ago.

Difficult to say, since we somehow compare apples with oranges. One should aware that predictions are just that and they are often subjected to multiple revisions, like for the Solar Cycle 24 (see image below). Researchers notice spikes relative to the projected Solar cycle 25, but these spikes are going to be less prominent when compared to the actual Solar cycle 25, since it outperforms they predictions.


View attachment 53991

Seems the peeps at Space Weather are commenting on the similarity to the previous solar cycle too, which they say then turned out to be the 'weakest solar cycle in a century':

SOLAR CYCLE 25--A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW: For much of the past year, the space weather community has been buzzing about the strong performance of young Solar Cycle 25 (SC25). Every month, sunspot numbers seem to blow past official predictions. This means we're about to have a strong Solar Maximum, right?​


"Not so fast," cautions Dr. Ron Turner, an analyst at the ANSER research institute in Virginia. "It may be too early to anticipate a strong solar cycle."​


This graph shows why Turner is skeptical:​




Solar Cycle 25 is doing something interesting. It is mimicking old Solar Cycle 24 (SC24). "I took sunspot numbers from the early years of SC24 (the red dashed line) and overlaid them on SC25," says Turner. "They're an almost perfect match."


This is significant because Solar Cycle 24 went on to become the weakest solar cycle in a century. Its hot start did not lead to a strong maximum. Turner isn't saying that Solar Cycle 25 will likewise be a dud. But, rather, "these early sunspot numbers are not enough to guarantee a strong cycle."​


Déjà vu, anyone?​

This is a video that provides some insights on how past Ice age and thunderbolts resulted in mass extinction.

Peter Mungo Jupp: Mass Extinction Thru Cosmic Force | Thunderbolts​


Peter Mungo Jupp January 22, 2022 - 4:00 pm Multimedia




Siberia, Alaska, and Malta are three examples of mass slaughter sites littered with carcasses and skeletons either petrified in rock, invaded in limestone, entombed in bitumen, buried in ice or mummified in peat bogs. Their instantaneous end was horrific. What agent of destruction rendered them extinct?
Archaeologist Peter Mungo Jupp unravels the evidence embraced in petroglyphs, art, writings, verbal traditions—even dance motifs—that cosmic thunderbolts may have been the force behind some of the world’s mass extinction events.

California drought continues to grow with intensity.

Meanwhile:

Filed in Weather/Climate Discussion by Daniel Swain on February 4, 2022 Snip (Graphs and Charts)

Record dry January for portions of CA and NV (but thank goodness for “Bombtober”)

Well, I don’t need to tell most folks twice: January 2022 was an exceptionally dry month across most of California and Nevada. Some spots saw a bit of rain and snow during the first couple days of the month, but others saw nothing at all; the last 25 days of the month brought essentially zero precipitation to the entire region. As a result, January 2022 will go down in the record books as the driest January on record (since at least 1895) for most of the San Joaquin Valley, the Central and Southern Sierra, and pockets of the Sacramento Valley and western Nevada. Due to the clear and dry conditions, temperatures were (on average) warmer than usual for January, but with a wide diurnal spread: overnight minimum temperatures were actually slightly *colder* than usual, but daytime high temperatures were significantly above average (and, thus, won out on in the monthly average).

As a result of these exceptionally dry and also warmer than average conditions, mid-winter snowmelt has begun in the Sierra Nevada and vegetation even across parts of normally very damp NorCal has dried out to levels more typical for May or June. While that’s still not nearly as dry as it would be during summer or autumn–closer to the peak of fire season–there have been a handful of notable wildfires over the past month and this pattern could perhaps continue for as long as we continue to see near-zero precipitation and occasionally windy conditions this winter.

In this context, it is exceptionally fortunate that California received as much precipitation as it did early in the season. The much discussed “Bombtober” (the extreme atmospheric river event and record single-day precipitation event in NorCal brought about by the rapid strengthening, or “bombogenesis,” of an offshore storm in October) singularly made October 2021 the wettest October on record across most of NorCal. And while November was pretty dry, December was quite wet and cold–and brought prodigious mountain snowfall. Remarkably, however, statewide snowpack has plummeted from a remarkable 160% of average in late December to 87% of average as of this writing. Meanwhile, statewide average precipitation to date is still somewhat close to average for the date despite a record dry January thanks to the very wet Oct and Dec, though parts of the state have already burned through this substantial head start and more areas will start to be below average for the season to date over the next 2 (dry) weeks. Still, it remains the case that October and December’s precipitation totals have prevented the 2021-2022 Water Year from being catastrophically dry. I still think it’ll end up dry (perhaps very dry), and the drought will persist (and perhaps re-intensify) through the summer and fall to come. But the state would now be in dramatically worse shape were it not for that early season precipitation–a truly fortuitous stroke of luck.

Big storm in Dalmatia: snow in Split, huge hail near Omis, hurricane bora, waterspout recorded near Benkovac



The temperature “instantly” dropped by more than 10 degrees! It is snowing in Dugopolje as well

The Cold Front is moving across Dalmatia. After crossing the northern Adriatic this morning, the front intensified and brought a strong change of weather to parts of Dalmatia.

Although the precipitation was not abundant, by 1 pm in Zagora it rained from 7 to 23 liters per square meter. Along the coast and on the islands, less rain fell by the same time, mostly up to 5 liters.

In the area from the Zadar hinterland to Omis, there were locally heavy thundershowers and hail. Thus, the hail covered parts of the Šibenik area, the east of Split, the Sinj area, and according to the latest data, the heaviest hail fell in the wider Omis area, where the height is sometimes up to 10 centimeters.

The rain turned to snow in the mountains, but the snow began to fall in parts of the Dalmatian hinterland and came very close to Split. Namely, there are snowflakes up to 200 meters above sea level and it falls even in Donji Sitni, but also on the highway near Klis.


The passage of the front was accompanied by a sharp drop in air temperature, which is lower than yesterday by more than 10 degrees. While in southern Dalmatia it is up to 15 degrees at 1 pm, in the middle it is only 1 to 8 ° C somewhere along the coast.

The Dinara is dominated by a whirlwind with a temperature of -7 ° C and a feeling of cold to -17 degrees!

Istramet reports, 7.2.2022. :

The wider Benkovac area was hit by a strong storm shortly before noon today. It seems that the worst was in the new settlement in Miranje, where the wind carried everything in front of it, HRT reported.

Žarko Čuljak says that the waterspout came from the sea and pushed the containers of the utility company and damaged residential buildings.

The damage is huge, to me and to fifteen other buildings where the leech came. It raised roofs and tiles. On this south side, there is almost no one who did not destroy the tiles. It broke the chimneys and these hats on them. Neighbors completely destroyed the chimney. "She brought the caravan to the neighbor in front of me and it shattered that you can't recognize it. If we didn't know it was a caravan, we wouldn't recognize it as it destroyed it," Culjak said.

This article was recently highlighted by the Suspicious 0bservers YT Channel. It is an historical study about the sun's effect on earthly aggression. These scientists are looking at Solioonensius!

I had to review the Law of Solioonensius - it describes the result of increasing tension in our Sun, whose tense vibrations all the nearby planets, with the resulting effect of a certain 'feeling of religiousness' which increases in us. And of course, then we get to choose what we do with this newfound 'religiousness'. This article highlights one common human choice during high solar EMF output - an increase in the chance of terrorism. They're talking about solar-correlated terrorism. That in itself is very interesting.

Beyond that, I didn't know there was a realm of study called geopsychology, which is as useful a term as geomythology. If only those dudes would talk to each other, and then maybe phone Randall Carlson, and finally read some of our favourite forum books!

Here are some snippets.

A Brief History of the Geopsychology of Aggression

Geopsychology, or geo-neuroscience, denotes the manifold impacts of the Earth's physical
environment on biology and behaviour [1,2]. Interest in the geopsychology of aggression originates prior to recorded history, with indigenous peoples inhabiting northern regions of the globe. Displays of aurora borealis – visible light phenomena reflecting transient disturbances in the geomagnetic field [3] often linked to variations in solar activity [4] – were in some cases likened to ancient warriors or considered omens foretelling of war, famine, and disease [5].

In 1924, A.L. Chizhevski first published (in Russian) the seminal scientific work on the geopsychology of aggression. His statistical analyses of historical data from 500 BCE to 1914 CE demonstrated that the most acute/severe human conflicts and violent revolutions occurred around maxima of 11-year solar activity (sunspot) cycles and that cultural development tended to flourish at solar minima [6].

In 1928, Chizhevski described a comparable association between Russian terrorism and solar activity for the period 1902 to 1911 [7]. Later (1999), M.A. Persinger demonstrated that higher yearly levels of solar-geomagnetic activity similarly predicted higher levels of armed human conflict for the years 1904 to 1950 [8]. Then, in 2015, Vares and Persinger showed that daily solar activity predicted 4% to 10% of the variance in the daily number of force and confrontation events occurring in the years 2009 to 2013 [9]




How Does Geopsychology Contribute to Instrumental Aggression?

Efforts to understand, anticipate, and preempt incidents of terrorism have rightly tended to highlight chains of more-or-less modifiable genetic, biological, psychological, cultural, and economic mechanisms that precede coercive acts of actual or threatened violence [19]. The present findings suggest that, in addition, features of the concurrent solar-geophysical milieu can effect aggregate (global) alterations in terrorism-related aggression [7]. Solar-geomagnetic variations may thus serve as zeitgebers that trigger synchronized expression of instrumental aggression among persons whose behaviour is prone to geopsychological influence [13], contributing to the emergent aggregation of human aggressive behaviour [8, 29].

While our study is descriptive and correlational, causal direction is implied by the relative determinants of solar/geomagnetic as opposed to human activities; below, we examine our results in light of the available experimental research in this area and consider geopsychological mechanisms that could be implicated in direct causal effects of solar-geomagnetic signals on alterations in brain function. It is however possible that the historical association between solar/geomagnetic and global terrorism activity reported above was instead and/or in addition mediated by other unexamined variables [30-32].

Whatever the causal mechanism(s), historical precedent suggests that terrorism activity is likely to increase as solar cycle 25 progresses from its initial minimum in 2020 to its peak in 2023-2025 [33, 34]. However if there is in fact a direct physical, dose-response effect of solar and/or geomagnetic activity on the neurobiology underlying human instrumental aggression, then it may also be germane that some have predicted solar cycle 25 will attain a historically high maximum [35].

You can see that they have a lot of clues, but are missing some key data... namely, that we're in for an Ice Age.



Classical and/or Quantum Geopsychological Transduction Mechanisms?

Both weak (Earth-strength) magnetic fields and radio-frequency electromagnetic noise are known to influence intra-cellular electron transfer reactions (e.g. involving human cryptochrome; [37, 38]), in qualitatively different ways, via a quantum (radical pair) intra-cellular mechanism [39, 40]. There is evidence that the radical pair mechanism underlies behavioural effects of solar-geomagnetic activity in non-human species: for instance, radio-frequency noise (e.g. solar activity) may disrupt sensitivity to orientational information in the geomagnetic field, leading to navigational errors in birds and whales [40, 41].


Our finding that instrumental human aggression (terrorism) was subject to influence by both solar and geomagnetic activity similarly suggests mediation via a quantum intra-cellular
mechanism. That said, recent experimental evidence indicates that some human brain responses to geomagnetic perturbations depend not on a quantum but on a classical (ferromagnetic) intra-cellular transduction mechanism [42].

...

Neurobiology Underlies Geopsychological Susceptibility

We examined a very narrowly-defined manifestation of instrumental aggression (terrorism). Instrumental aggression is unlike reactive-impulsive-type aggressive behaviours. These are typically a (defensive) response to immediate threat mediated by brainstem- and diencephalic-level neuroanatomical structures (i.e. periaqueductal grey and hypothalamus). In contrast, instrumental aggressive behaviours (e.g. terrorism) are by definition premeditated, often removed in space and time from the instigating event(s), and depend primarily on limbic and orbito-frontal/pre-frontal cortices [10, 11].

As such it is notable that prior rat and human research from our group and others has implicated both (right) limbic-temporal [45-49] and (right) pre-frontal brain regions [50-53] in geopsychological effects. As with the manifold established biological effects resulting from exposure to Wi-Fi and related anthropogenic microwave-frequency electromagnetic fields [54], there are likely to be multiple distinct solar-geophysical signals and biological transduction substrates implicated in the spectrum of geopsychological phenomena [1, 2, 7, 12, 13, 40, 42]. We assume that a combination of molecular, cellular, and neuroarchitectural/neuroanatomical characteristics underlies the primary susceptibility of a particular behaviour to solar-geophysical influence.

Moreover, “energetic environmental phenomena affect psychophysical processes that can affect people in different ways depending on their sensitivity, health status, and capacity for self-regulation” [55; p.1], and some individuals show evidence of extreme susceptibility to geopsychological induction [49, 56].

...

Conclusion and Practical Implications

In undertaking this study we sought to contribute to theoretical and methodological advances in the geopsychology of aggression by illustrating a robust and historically-representative manifestation of an ecologically-embedded geopsychological phenomenon. We also sought to address an unmet societal need for “tools for understanding, predictions, alerts, and the rational design of countermeasures of societal cataclysms, such as terrorism and war” [20; p. 327]. The direct and indirect causal mechanisms through which solar-geomagnetic activity impacts human instrumental aggression have yet to be fully elucidated.


Nonetheless, the findings presented herein indicate that the approach of solar cycle 25 maximum (in 2023-2025) is likely to herald a progressive increase in the frequency of global instrumental aggressive behaviour. Broader consideration of this fact may aid in identifying avenues to address the major modifiable causes and mitigate the detrimental global impacts of terrorism, in all its forms.

I think we may see exactly this - more aggressive human behaviour - but moreso because people begin to lack basic necessities like food and heat for their homes, not due to a 'particularly strong SC25' (which seems to be the opposite of what will occur).
