Unusual cold and snow are expected to sweep across North America and Europe over the coming days, thus threatening crops.
Not that mid May is approaching, global warming alarmists tell us we should already be expecting heat waves. But right now the opposite is in the forecast: snow and extreme cold! Who would have thought?
Snow for Boston and new York?
Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue tweeted that both New York City and Boston might see snow on Saturday as a “rare & powerful May ‘bomb cyclone’ Nor’easter” is projected to develop off the east coast.
Over a foot of snow might fall in Maine, Maue asserts:
While snow won't stick on the ground for long, if at all, parts of Maine might see more significant accumulations over a foot.

Maue earlier had tweeted that the snow and cold could act as a “triple whammy” because “hard freezes limit agriculture, forces people to remain indoors w/central heating & provides outdoor environment favorable for coronavirus.”
Snow to blanket parts of northern/central Germany
Not only the Northeast has to worry about winter striking so late in the season, but also an intense cold front will be sweeping across a vast swath of northern Europe, reports German weather site daswetter.com here.
One can also call it an unusual cold snap for almost mid-May. The air in the north will warm up to only 7 to 12 degrees. […] With the polar air, the temperatures will plunge, and so will the snowfall line. When the cold air reaches the south in the night from Monday, it will snow slowly until the middle of the day. Around 400 to 600 m, up to 10 cm of fresh snow is possible in the middle of May. Even up to 300 m wet snow can fall.”
“Five to 6 nights of frost warnings” in UK
At Twitter David Birch tweeted a GIF animation showing the projected movement of the cold front, writing that Britain might see 5 or 6 nights of frost warnings next week:
