Things have cooled down significantly across British Columbia of late; so much so in fact, that SNOW has been falling on the Coquihalla and over the province’s Interior ski hills — a stark flip-flop from the heatwave of June.
Lisa Erven, Environment Canada meteorologist, said the cold temperatures at the end of August resulted in rare summer flurries settling in Silver Star, Whistler and parts of the Okanagan Connector.
“It certainly is a cold weather pattern for August and it does happen from time to time that we have these cold upper lows moving through and this is what happens,” Erven said, in an attempt to brush off the event.
Though she does end with this: “It is a bit of a shock that fall might be arriving.”

Official weather bodies, with their MSM lapdogs in tow, were all too keen to make the early-summer heat and wildfires front page news, but where are they now, as rare late-summer snow rolls in? These ‘crickets’ serve as further examples of cherry-picking and absurd obfuscation, yet the masses are still falling for it…
The Anthropogenic Global Warming theory is no better at explaining the summer heat than it is the summer snow, but the AGW theory is hamstrung by politics, it isn’t based in science. If it was the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment, it would have been dropped many, many moons ago — the hypotheses (to call it a theory has always been generous) has failed at every turn, and it is an inconvenient truth that each and every tipping point deadline of the past 4+ decades has uneventfully passed us by.
Rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are not the cause of global warming — I can state this with confidence because global average temperatures are no longer rising in line with CO2. In fact, temps aren’t rising at all anymore, they have actually dropped off a cliff since 2016–down some 0.7C in that time.
The Sun is at the heart of British Columbia’s summer flip-flopping, and, logically, is the driver of Earth’s climate as a whole — a determined propaganda campaign is the only reason this statement is controversial.
Low solar activity weakens the jet streams, and the Sun has been suffering its lowest output in more than a century — these are two indisputable facts, btw. When solar activity is HIGH, the jet stream is tight and stable and follows somewhat of a straight path. But when solar activity is LOW, that meandering band of air flowing 6 miles above our heads becomes weak and wavy, it effectively buckles which diverts frigid Polar air to atypically low latitudes and replaces it with warmer tropical air.
The jet stream reverts from a “Zonal” flow to a “Meridional” flow and, depending on which side of the jet stream you’re on, you’re either in for a spell of unseasonably cold or hot weather and/or a period of unusually dry or wet conditions.
This flip-flopping (aka swing between extremes) has been long-predicted by those studying the Sun, and it is one forecast to intensify as the Grand Solar Minimum continues its deepening.
