Sunday, September 29 was a record breaking day for many areas of NW Oregon/SW Washington.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has confirmed that temperatures in downtown Portland, OR reached a high of just 10C (50F) on Sunday which ties the record for all-time coldest September day set back in 1934 (solar minimum of cycle 16)
That reading also busts the old daily record lowest high for Sept 29 — the 12.2C (54F) set in 1971.
Furthermore, at least another five all-time low temperature records were toppled in the region on Sunday, according to NWS data — at Portland Airport, Hillsboro, Troutdale, McMinnville, and Astoria.
To clarify, the above cities set new all-time never-before-seen lows for the month of September in record books going back well-over 100 years.
The cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar activity.
Multiple Cold Records Toppled in British Columbia — Grand Solar Minimum
By Cap Allon
The historic September snowstorm shattered record after record over the weekend, dropping more than 4 feet of powder in some regions. So far we’ve concentrated on the all-time, monthly and daily cold records toppled in the NW U.S., but now it’s Canada’s turn, more specifically, B.C.’s.
Heavy harvest-disrupting snow and record-low temperatures were registered in British Columbia:
A total of 48 cm (18.9 inches) of powder accumulated at Paulson Summit over the weekend. The Kootenay Pass received 35 cm (13.8 inches), while Pennask and the Coquihalla received 14 cm (5.5 inches) and 7 cm (2.8 inches) of snow, respectively.
Multiple all-time daily low minimum temperature records were broken too, in at least 3 sites:
- Burns Lake plunged to -7.4C (18.7F) on Sat, Sept 28 busting the previous record of -6.1C (21F) set back in 1983 (solar minimum of cycle 21), and to a bone-chilling -8.4C (16.9F) on Sun, Sept 29 surpassing the old mark of -7.5 from 1991.
- The mercury in Bella Bella dropped to 0.4C (32.7F) on Saturday, smashing the old record of 4C set in 1977 (solar minimum of cycle 20), and to 0.7 on Sunday, tying the record low set in 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23).
- While Port Hardy set a new record on Sunday when the temp in the northern Vancouver Island community sank to 0C (32F), breaking the previous record of 0.7C (33.3F) set in 1985 (solar minimum of cycle 21).
I’m certain more record lows fell in B.C., and I’ll be checking with the official NOAA data once it’s compiled, but these are all I could find for now.
Note how almost every previous record was set during a solar minimum (check the years against the chart below). Solar activity plays a crucial role in earth’s climate, and for the IPCC to ignore it in their reports is absurd at best and fraudulent at worst.

UAH Global Temperature Update for September, 2019: +0.61 deg. C.
By Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.
Cold everywhere, but according to satellite measurements it’s getting a little warmer, isn’t that special!?
Are the measurements from Dr. Roy Spencer also being adjusted (counterfeited) now, or are there some errors?
Time will tell …
Update Oct. 6th. from Dr. Roy Spencer
Record amount of cold air masses sinks (cold air sinks and warm air ascends) at the poles and suck in warm air from the lower latitudes creating an illusion of warming while in reality it is a massive cooling event?
Again, time will tell for sure ..
