“Heavy snowstorms are not inconsistent with a warming planet,” said Dr. Jeff Masters, director of meteorology and co-founder of the Weather Underground website. “In fact, as the Earth gets warmer and more moisture gets absorbed into the atmosphere, we are steadily loading the dice in favor of more extreme storms in all seasons, capable of causing greater impacts on society.”
As the Earth gets warmer, we have more record cold weather. Trapped heat causes an excess of cold, which in turn produces lots of snow. Cold is the new hot.
