Hamburg Germany Seeing MORE Easter Snow Than In 1960s

germany snowfall

Today we see SNOW in the forecast for Easter Monday across most of Germany.

A few years ago, renowned warmist climate science professor Mojib Latif also chimed in, just after David Viner, in declaring snow and ice also would be a thing of the past in Germany.

The distinguished professor recalled growing up in Hamburg, and claimed “sometimes” seeing snow on Easter.

When I was a kid in the 1960s, we sometimes still had snow at Easter. In the meantime we have really forgotten how a winter really appears – and there can be winters also in times of global warming.”

In case Latif really has forgotten what winter looks like, he’s about to get a reminder  – tomorrow. In his comment above, Latif also used the word “sometimes” to describe the frequency of “having snow at Easter” in the 1960s, implying it occurred more than once.

Only one single Easter day in the 1960s

What follows are the Easter snow ON THE GROUND statistics in cm for Hamburg of the 1960s. To see if Latif was accurate, we look at the period from Holy Thursday through Easter Monday and the respective snowfall for each day. For example on March 30th, 1964 there was 3 cm of snow cover on the ground in Hamburg.

1960: 14-18 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1961: 30 March – 3 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1962: 19-23 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1963: 11-15 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1964: 26-30 March; 0, 0, 0, 0, 3
1965: 15-19 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1966: 7-11 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1967: 23-27 March; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1968: 11-15 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1969: 3-7 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0

Of the 50 days of Easter-time occurring in the 1960s, only one single day saw snow in Hamburg – a whole 3 cm on Easter Monday, March 30, 1964! Obviously personal memories are not reliable sources of data, especially in Prof. Latif’s case.

More snowy Easter days in the 2010s

How does this compare to our last decade, 2010-2019?

2010:  1-5 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2011 21-25 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2012: 5-9 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2013: 28 Mar – 1 Apr; 5, 6, 4, 2, 0
2014: 17-21 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2015: 2-6 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2016: 27-31 March; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2017: 13-17 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2018: 29 Mar – 2 Apr; 6, 0, 0, 0, 0
2019: 18-22 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0

From 2010 to 2019, Hamburg saw snow on the ground on 5 days, i.e. more often than in the 1960s.

Another Easter snow day forecast for Hamburg

The current decade looks as follows:

2020: 9-13 April; 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2021: 0, 0, 0, 0, but with snow forecast tomorrow in Hamburg.

That would make Easter in Hamburg seeing snow on the ground on 6 days over the past 10 years, compared to just once in the 1960s. Snow has become more frequent over the past decades, and not less frequent.

But then again it should not be a surprise snow is appearing a bit more frequently in Hamburg at Easter.

Just a few days ago we wrote how spring was tending to arrive later in Hamburg, and not sooner like global warming alarmists like to have everyone think it is.
