    Two weeks? This record will likely be broken:

    “The temps from Wednesday the 24 thru Thursday the 25, have been in the lower 30’s and cooler in the evenings, it’s dipping down to the mid to upper teens. The 5 day forecast for the Nenana area
    is to remain the same.”

    Wow, it’s the same as in Feb.

    Reblogged this on The Next Grand Minimum and commented:
    Looking for another record to be broken. If we see it broken five years in a row, we might want to start worrying if the next minimum has arrived.

      Alaskans might have to consider migrating. South for the Winter and Summer. The new LIA has nearly arrived. šŸ™‚

        I agree, the signs (expanding glaciers, many consecutive cold winters, 2 La Ninas after the El Nino of 2010, with the possibility of another one on the way, etc.) are clearly pointing in this direction. Now, one question remains: “how long” this grand minimum will last? … I believe the “Livingston-Penn effect” is being proven correct and we’re heading towards a “new Maunder”.

    Guess this means it’s going to be getting cooler…

    They began ice measurements in 1989 and this year is a doozy.
    I’m hoping to win the $300,000 + prize this year.

    With temps as low as -12F in Alaska this morning, it does not appear that the ice is going anywhere very soon. Fairbanks is averaging 14.3 degrees below normal for April as of this morning. Valdez still has 4.5 feet of snow on the ground. A very frigid spring indeed!

    latest was 20 May, 1964 11:41:00
    so more than 3 weeks time
