Summer snowfall has been recorded across many countries from the United States and Canada, all the way across the pond to the UK, Austria, Germany, and Italy. Of course these events have not been reported by news sources like NBC, CNN, The New York Times, or The Washington ComPost.
In Montana, The National Weather Service office in Missoula issued their first Winter Weather Advisory for the season for elevations above 6,000 feet in the Glacier National Park area, and areas in the Whitefish and Flathead Mountain ranges in Northwestern Montana. 1 to 3 inches of global warming were forecasted for areas above 7,000 feet with some localized areas expecting 3 to 6 or even 6 to 9 inches. Logan Pass, at Glacier National Park received exactly one inch of snow.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming also received snow. Some areas nearby received an upward of five inches.
Meanwhile, light snowfall was also recorded in British Columbia and Alberta while Ontario and Quebec, in Eastern Canada prepare for a heatwave this week.
Across the pond in Europe, last weekend’s cold wave brought summer to a standstill with temperatures plunging to -2°C in Scotland, where light snowfall was reported in higher elevations. Austria recorded heavy snowfall, while the Italian Alps recorded up to 20 centimeters (7.9 inches). Some places recorded staggering totals of 40 centimeters or 17.5 inches of snow last weekend. Parts of Germany were also turned into a winter wonderland.
