Story.jpg

 

"In Burlington the temperature reached the freezing mark for the earliest time in the season since 1964! That data is according to the National Weather Service in Burlington.

Low temperatures dropped into the 20s and 30s across the area and broke/tied records in some cases. A record low was established in Massena, NY for Thursday and Friday. A record low was tied for Friday in Burlington and St. Johnsbury. These temperatures were 10-20 degrees below average for this time of the year!"

Here is the latest model forecast of total snowfall ending at midnight tonight (graphic courtesy of Weatherbell.com))

 

"As I predicted two days ago, the earliest snows on record are beginning to occur in the Carolinas.

Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC."

The wet heavy snow from Sunday's storm downs a large tree limb across Thatcher Street in Bangor

 

"BANGOR, Maine — Maine’s first snowstorm of the season hammered parts of the state with heavy, wet, persistent snow, leaving more than 135,000 homes without power Sunday night.

The National Weather Service estimated Bangor would see 8-12 inches before the storm diminished Sunday night. Higher totals were expected to the northeast of the city. Portland television station WGME, CBS 13, reported a foot of snow in Union and Prospect at 5:30 p.m.

Power outages mounted Sunday afternoon as heavy snow and high wind gusts snapped tree limbs, pulling down power lines. Downed lines forced officials to close roads across the Bangor region.

Early on Sunday, Emera Maine crews were working to restore power to more than 2,100 customers. Many of those outages were fixed by the afternoon, but thousands more took their place."

Unusually early storm dumps up to a foot of snow in parts of U.S.

Nov. 2, 2014

 

"Parts of the East Coast were digging out Sunday from up to a foot of snow, with significant snowfall reported from South Carolina to Maine.

By Sunday afternoon, 12 inches of snow had fallen in Bangor, Maine, with more expected overnight.

Thousands of people lost power across New England as the storm brought high winds, heavy surf and snow. On Cape Cod, more than 7,500 customers were still in the dark Sunday evening and dealing with downed trees and flooded roads.

Mount Washington, N.H., recorded wind speeds of 98 mph and a low temperature Sunday morning of 12 degrees Fahrenheit.

Utility companies in Connecticut reported more than 8,000 outages Sunday afternoon.

Winter storm warnings were issued Sunday in western Montana, southeast Utah and Colorado. A freeze warning was also issued for north and central Georgia until Monday morning."

Earliest Snow in Columbia, SC

November 1, 2014

By Roy W. Spencer, Ph.Dd

 

 

 

This is how it was on 1 Nov in SC where my horse lives (about 30 min away from me). Since I live in the city, I didn't get any snow though. But it was and still is quite cold, going down to the 30s F at night.

 

post-2154-0-21804100-1415038283_thumb.jp

 

I should say that by 2 Nov, pretty much all of that (except what was in the shade) was all melted.

 

"What is truly remarkable is that just four days earlier, on October 28th, Columbia recorded a record daily high temperature of 87°F (30.6°C) and it was 84°F (28.9°C) on Wednesday, October 29th!" http://www.wunderground.com/blog/weatherhistorian/archive.html?year=2014&month=11

Climate Engineering Is Creating Increasingly Extreme Weather Fluctuations

November 17, 2014

 

Average-Pattern-This-Winter-300x204.jpg

 

Global climate engineering is forcing the climate system far past the breaking point. The ever more radical fluctuations of temperatures and weather conditions is beginning to gain the attention of many around the world. Record high temperatures are now often followed immediately by record low temperatures. The geoengineers are desperately trying to create regions of “cool-downs” in a world that is rapidly warming. The “cool” zones are shallow layers of cold dense air that settles out of clouds and storm systems which are being heavily sprayed with artificial/chemical ice nucleating elements. Profound jet stream manipulation with the use of ionosphere heater installations are also a major factor in the engineered “polar vortex” events and cool-downs. The radical lurching of the climate system will worsen rapidly as the damage to our biosphere increases. Make your voice heard in this critical battle, we must all work toward exposing and halting the geoengineering insanity.

Weather records tumble, and will continue to tumble, nationwide

Source: Examiner

Imagine that the weather pattern this week and last week represents a rock concert. There will be lots of acts, many with different flavors, yet, all within the theme of the main program. If that analogy works, then, last week’s Typhoon Nuri was the opening act for the main weather show. This pushed warm air northward into Alaska (where Bettles broke a high temperature reading on Nov. 12 – 39 degrees (old was 36, set in 1976). A reading of 39 may not seem all that warm, but this is Alaska in November, after all!

Snow, cold keep New England skiers, riders stoked into May

May 2, 2015 

Lynne Tuchy

 

 

"CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Skiers and snowboarders at Vermont's Sugarbush resort right now can spend the morning on the slopes and play golf in the afternoon - testament to the abundance of snow that extended the season at many northern New England ski areas.

 

Sugarbush is one of more than half dozen areas in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine still operating this weekend.

New Hampshire's Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch prides itself on being the state's last ski area open in the spring but marketing director Thomas Prindle says they haven't made it into May in more than a decade."

Late-Season Freeze to Threaten Northeast Friday  Night

May 22, 2015

Brian Lada

 

"It might feel more like late October rather than late May in the Northeast on Friday night as temperatures dip well below normal.

Frost will threaten gardens across the region on Friday night as chilly air moves in from Canada."

The coldest air will focus across the interior Northeast with some locations bottoming out in the 20s.

Homeowners who have already planted their annual flowers and vegetation should take the proper precautions to protect their plants from the potentially damaging cold."

Incessant Indian Heat Wave Leaves 1800 Dead

May 29, 2015

Siddhant Mohan

 

 

"NEW DELHI, India — As the death toll in a relentless, weeks-long heat wave in India climbed to more than 1,800 on Friday, officials raced to contain the danger, pleading in vain for residents to stay inside.

But many aren't listening to the warnings, even as temperatures have topped 110 degrees throughout the country since mid-May.

"Either we have to work in fields for food or we stay at home — both ways, we may suffer death," said Ram Ranjan, 42. The poor farmer lives in the southern state ofAndhra Pradesh, one of the hardest hit areas along with Telangana state. Together, the two regions account for more than 1,000 of the deaths.

More than 29% of the Indian population lives below the poverty line, and the majority are daily wage labors, according to the government figures. Because of that many are working outside in the extreme heat despite the risks."

My heart goes out to anyone being affected breezy by such devastation. Between the wars, children being kidnapped for the sex trade, crooked politicians, people without food, weather that is affecting whole regions, families thst are simply just giving up, souls losing their ways and so much other low negative energy we wonder truly If this will all get better. Stay true to yourself and be the core energy thst is the reactor that spreads your light for others. Thst day will come when we celebrate moving past thst deception and finally smile upon the wondeful love we all truly will share.

Week-long heat wave kills 1,233 people in southern Pakistan – deadliest in country’s history

 

A devastating weeklong heat wave in Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi killed 1,233 people, an official said. Nazar Mohammad Bozdar, operations director at the Provincial Disaster Management Authority, said about 65,000 heatstroke patients were treated by doctors at all of Karachi’s hospitals since June 20 when the heat wave struck Sindh province, where Karachi is the provincial capital.

He told The Associated Press that 1,923 patients with heat-related ailments were still being treated. “The government quickly responded by making arrangements for the treatment of heatstroke patients and the situation has improved now,”

Mother Earth will continue to shed her layers as Mother Nature tries to balance the true extremes that will accelerate until the end cycle. I pray for anyone that is going through such horrific and devastating times. Be aware; this will continue to expand before it abruptly ends and everything calms to where it is suppose to be.

What it's like this evening in my neck of the woods. Check out that "feels like" temperature. Today my car's thermometer registered between 107 and 109 as I drove around town. Sure it's summer in the south, but this is abnormally high.

Searing 164-degree temps in Iran as 'heat dome' traps Middle East

August 3, 2015

 

 

"The Middle East is trapped under a brutal “heat dome” that has brought apocalyptic weather and a heat index that makes it feel like 164 degrees in one Iranian city.

 

For more than a week, Iran and Iraq have endured scorching temperatures, prompting Baghdad to declare a four-day “heat holiday” and leaving the Iranian city of Bandar Mahshahr dangerously close to breaking the all-time record with a heat index of 164 degrees on Friday.

 

"That was one of the most incredible temperature observations I have ever seen and it is one of the most extreme readings ever in the world," AccuWeather meteorologist Anthony Sagliani told the New York Post.

 

The heat index, which takes into account actual temperature as well as humidity, is often referred to as the “feels-like” or “real feel” temperature. The index for Bandar Mahshahr, a city of 100,000 people in the Khuzestan Province of southwestern Iran, fell mercifully shy of the record high from July 8, 2003, when the heat index was recorded at 178 degrees in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

Following the heat wave , are we seeing a trend , as reports of firstly India , then , Pakistan , Iran , a line vectoring Westwardly above the  Equator through the Tropic of Cancer  .

 

Also noting its adjacent counterpart to the Gulf of Mexico ( BP oil spill ) and the heatwave recorded by Kandescent & Breezy !

 

The Northern Hemisphere " White " Rainbow is working doubly hard to make things right .

 

Cheers  ;D

 

Edit to add ; - Also factor in the Wild fires in California & Russia and elsewhere

North Atlantic 'Cold Blob' a Reason for Concern, Scientists Say

 

When NOAA released its report on the first seven months of 2015, the map of the globe was almost completely covered in red to signify that most of the planet was experiencing above-average temperatures for the year.

But there was one big chunk of the North Atlantic Ocean that was a deep, dark blue. Some saw the below-average temperatures of that region as the lone silver lining on the entire map while others questioned why that area was having its coldest year on record.

 

As the Washington Post points out, those readings are almost assuredly accurate; NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information confirmed it. The message that came next from some climate scientists was a quick reminder that this cold "blob" is probably not good news.

Large parts of Australia set for a week of heatwave conditions with temperatures in the 40s

November 16, 2015

Michael Morrow

 

Video at link

 

"SUMMER will arrive early for large parts of the country with scorching temperatures forecast for much of this week.

The spring heatwave is being caused by a large high pressure system moving across from Western Australia.

Hot conditions and worsening fire conditions will develop in South Australia tomorrow and slowly move east, blasting much of the south east with three or four days of high temperatures.

Weatherzone reports that South Australia is on track for its hottest spell since last summer and its hottest November spell in six years."

The New World: March 2016 Is the Sixth Temperature Record-Breaking Month in a Row

Phil Plait

April 16, 2016

 

 

march2016_temperatures.jpg.CROP.original

 

 

No human alive has seen a month of March like this before

 

October. November. December. January. February. And now March.

 

"For the sixth month in a row, we’ve had a month that has broken the global high temperature record. And not just broken it, but shattered it, blasting through it like the previous record wasn’t even there.

 
According to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, March 2016 was the hottest March on record, going back 136 years. It was a staggering 1.28°C above average across the planet.* The previous March record, from 2010, was 0.92° above average. This year took a huge jump over that.
 
Welcome to the new normal, and our new world.
 
As you can see from the map above, much of this incredible heat spike is located in the extreme northern latitudes. That is not good; it’s this region that’s most fragile to heating. Temperatures soaring to 7° or more above normal means more ice melting, a longer melting season, loss of thinner ice, loss of longer-term ice, and most alarmingly the dumping of billions of tons of fresh water into the saltier ocean which can and will disrupt the Earth’s ability to move that heat around.
 
What’s going on? El Niño might be the obvious culprit, but in fact it’s only contributing a small amount of overall warming to the globe, probably around 0.1° C or so. That’s not nearly enough to account for this. It’s almost certain that even without El Niño we’d be experiencing record heat."

Indian heat wave: Death toll tops 300 as temperatures push 50C with more than 330 million struggling with severe drought.

  • It could be the deadliest heatwave in world history. 
  • It's still only April...With the hottest months to come!
  • Hottest April temperatures ever recorded and the mercury is still rising!
  • More than 300 deaths and another 80 killed by fires....

With temperatures now pushing 50C (122F) with high humidity and the death toll rising rapidly, the heat wave in parts of India has now reached heat levels a human body cannot function and  begins to break down.
The sizzling heat wave has claimed more than 300 lives in India, and officials have forbidden daytime cooking in some areas to prevent fires that have killed nearly 80 others.

The eastern state of Bihar banned cooking between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. after accidental fires exacerbated by dry, hot and windy weather swept through shantytowns and thatched-roof houses in villages and killed 79 people.
People are also barred from burning spent crops or holding fire rituals as part of Hindu religious practice.

Disaster management official Vyas, who goes by one name, said Friday that anyone who violates the orders could face up to a year in jail.
 At least 300 people have died of heat-related illness this month, as more than 330 million are also struggling with severe drought.

Three weeks into April and Ananthapuram is burning under an intolerable heat wave with daily temperatures touching 44 degrees Celsius, making it one of the hottest places in the country, according to private weather forecaster Skymet.

Step out around 11 am and you feel you are being physically assaulted by the heat, a steady stream of scorching blows raining all over your body.

While it is unsurprising that people are collapsing in this heat, the tragedy lies in the fact that if adequate precautions are taken, heatstroke deaths like Gopal's and Venkataiah's are preventable, according to experts, unlike in other natural calamities such as earthquakes and floods.

This is the second consecutive year southern India has suffered from a deadly heat wave, after some 2,500 people died in scorching temperatures last year.

 

Thailand records it's hottest temperature on record as heatwave continues: 112.3 degrees Fahrenheit (44.6 degrees Celcius)

Heat records broken Sunday in Puget Sound

June 5, 2016

 

 

"SEATTLE —

Record heat was expected Sunday in the Puget Sound region.
 
Officials with the National Weather Service of Seattle said heat with record tying and breaking highs were forecast.
 
The forecast high for Sea-Tac was 92 degrees, which is the record high for the date, reached in 1978.
 
The forecast high for Olympia was 96. The record high for the date there is 93, set in 1978. In Quillayute, the forecast high was 81. The record is 91, reached in 2003.
 
In Hoquiam, the forecast high was 83. The record high is 90, reached in 2003. And in Bellingham, the forecast high was 84. The record high is 84, reached in 1958.
 
By 2:45 p.m., Olympia and Bellingham had both hit the record heat marks, reaching 93 and 84 degrees, respectively.
 
Around 6:20 p.m., NWS officials said Sea-Tac had broken its earlier record, reaching 93 degrees."

I guarantee you it was about 5 degrees hotter than Seattle, where I am.  I was a puddle all day.

Oppressive heat to challenge all-time records across the southwestern US this weekend

Bret Rathbun

 

 

"An extreme heat wave will grip the southwestern United States this weekend and early next week.

A strong ridge of high pressure will take control and strengthen into next week, sending temperatures to dangerous levels.
 
650x366_06161537_hd21.jpg
 
"When a ridge of high pressure like this one forms in the middle to late June, it can deliver some of the hottest weather possible to the Desert Southwest," AccuWeather Western U.S. Expert Ken Clark said.
Temperatures will run between 10 and 20 degrees Fahrenheit above average through the early part of next week.
"The peak of the heat in many areas will be on Monday, but Sunday and Tuesday will be no slouches either in the high heat department," Clark said."
 
650x366_06160720_hd24.jpg
 
"With multiple fires raging across the region, the heat could pose problems for firefighters.
"The heat and increasing dryness will continue to elevate the wildfire danger," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. "There will continue to be episodes of Sundowner winds (northerly downsloping winds) that threaten to further fan the Sherpa Fire and spread any new blazes in southwestern California," Pydynowski said.
In central New Mexico, the Dog Head Fire prompted a declaration of a state of emergency from Gov. Susana Martinez. The fire has grown 16,000 acres.
Not only will it be hot compared to average, but temperatures will likely challenge all-time record highs.
Palm Springs, California; Phoenix, Arizona; and Las Vegas, Nevada, are just some of the many cities which will approach their all-time record-high temperatures this weekend into early next week.
"This will push power to the limits to keep buildings cooled and any outdoor efforts should be severely limited if not avoided completely," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde said."
 
 
Stay safe all.
