Scientists are beginning to predict the level of the next solar maximum and the timing and they are following Dalton Minimum (1810 to 1823 Little Ice Age) very closely. Predictions are settling lower lately at a sunspot number of 50 sometime in 2015. It would be the weakest solar cycle since Solar Cycle 6, the second half of Dalton. Solar Cycle 5 had a maximum amplitude of 49.2 and Solar Cycle 6 of 48.7. Temperatures in those decades were up to 8 degrees F colder than today.
