Recall that a Grand Solar Minimum initially manifests not so much in lower average temperatures, but greater climate variability including floods as well as heat waves and droughts; the drop in global average temperature usually follows the solar modulation less closely and with delays. As we have (very likely) entered the next Grand Solar Minimum, however, cold/ snow records are dominant this time around.

SUMMER TEMPS TUMBLE BELOW ZERO IN SLOVAKIA — ALL-TIME COLD RECORDS BROKEN
Ever-since that (much reported) 3-day African Plume at the end of June, the weather in the Central European nation of SLOVAKIA has been governed by a string of brutally cold Arctic fronts — wreaking havoc on the country’s growing regions and busting all-time low temperature records.
Local meteorologists have been measuring “extremely low temperatures” for the time of year.
On July 10, this extreme cold engulfed the entire nation, toppling records in the Prešov Region — as reported on the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute’s (SHMÚ) Facebook page (best of luck with FB’s translation):
The mercury in Poprad, a city located at the foot of Slovakia’s High Tatras Mountains, dropped to -1C (30.2F) at a height of 5cm above ground level on Wednesday morning.
While extremely rare summer frosts were reported across the country.
“Two metres above the ground, the temperature [was] 3.7C (38.7F) in Poprad and 6.3C (43.3F) in Kamenica nad Cirochou,” reported the SHMÚ.
Those readings marked the coldest July morning for both weather stations since records began.
All-time July low temperature records continue to fall across Europe as a string of brutal Arctic fronts plunge successively deeper into the continent.
Needless to say, the mainstream media remains silent, further exposing their bias.
Following Last Week’s Heat, Europe is now Experiencing Well-Below Average Cold — but where’s the Balanced Reporting?
While latest GFS runs reveal Europe’s summer chills are far-from-over, particularly for central and eastern parts:
The cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar output.
Even NASA agrees, in part, with their latest forecast suggesting solar cycle 25 (starting now) will be the weakest of the past 200 years:
