    Bali volcano eruption thought imminent

    Looks like we may get a big one.

    Mount Agung in Bali is experiencing unprecedented levels of seismic activity and could erupt in a “matter of hours” if tremors continue, Indonesia’s volcanology centre has said.

    It's one of the larger volcanoes, and large eruptions can have a global cooling effect of a degree or two which can last for months.

    That might not sound like much, but if throughout your winter it always would have been.....say.... 2 degrees warmer, cumulatively that can have a pretty big effect on snow totals.

    The effects on solar radiation would be mostly noticeable in the southern hemisphere though.

    Overall not worth hoping for.

    Definitely not worth hoping for given the hundreds if not thousands of homes that would be destroyed, but an average of a degree colder could have an impact. Far from hoping, but something to watch!

    The effects of past Indonesian volcanic winters have had a big effect in the eastern United States.

    During the largest recorded event, it snowed in June in New York, and there was frost in Connecticut and Massachusetts in August (SEE: The Year Without a Summer).

    1816 was also the peak of the Dalton Minimum so the effects were likely compounded.
