The picture doesn't load for me either (PC). I usually save the pic and post it on an image hosting site like Imgur.

Weather Warning Issued Across Iceland — High Winds and Heavy Snow Expected

Quote:
Meteorologists at the Iceland Met Office likened the expected snowfall to that in 2012, when a state of emergency was declared in the north of the country.

At that time, the storm unfolded before Iceland’s famous sheep roundups had been completed, and many sheep died from being buried in the snow for days on end.

All across the country, farmers have begun rounding up their sheep, gathering them in from the mountains to the north, where the most severe weather is expected during the next few days.

First snow flurries of the season in Barrow, Alaska. It's the most northerly town in the United States. The sea there will be forming ice soon.

Looking healthy over the northern latitudes temperature wise for the time of year, colder than average generally at the moment.

Snow is falling in Alberta, the biggest round is still ahead

Quote:
Friday, September 21, 2018, 11:33 AM - September snow records have already been broken in Alberta as rounds of snow put an end to the summer season. More shovel-able snow is forecast through Saturday with warnings to drivers for deteriorating road conditions. More on the snowfall amounts and timing, below

Alberta farmers fret over recent snowfalls that delayed harvest, damaged crops

Quote:
Some Alberta farmers are concerned about their crops after a late-summer snowfall blanketed parts of the province, with more flurries expected in the forecast.

Early season snow can squash crops that grow upright, like wheat and barley, make them harder to harvest and decimate their quality, leaving farmers with a less valuable product.

It seems when we get cold and snowy weather, places like Alberta often get milder weather. Let's hope this September snow is not a sign of things to come this winter!

There has been a good build of snow over Eastern Siberia recently. I'll upload an image later when I get on my laptop.

I think this should be noted.

The snow cover over Norway on Saturday just gone is quite a lot for September 29th. Back to 1998, I could only find three close examples; 2012, 2010 and 2003.



2003



2010



2012

Less Siberian snow cover now than there has been on this day in previous years. The closest comparisons to this are 2011 (most similar) and 2012. 2009 is fairly similar but not really as close as the other two.

I still think it's a bit early to worry about this though. 2009 had even less snow than this but we all know how the winter turned out. Must mention that there was a very rapid expansion of snow cover by Halloween 2009 which further proves the point that it's too early to be worrying for now.

Big increase in snow over Northern Sweden/Finland. Some increases in Siberia too.

Whilst Siberian snow cover is lacking so far compared to previous years (especially 2017 for instance), Scandinavian snow cover continues to increase dramatically. In fact in the archive, I could not find as much snow cover over Scandinavia back to 1998 as 2018 on 5 October. Closest matches being 2003 and 2009. Notice 2003 and 2009 didn't have large extents of snow cover over Siberia either (especially 2009) on 5th October.
