Talk about heat

 

Flight to Phoenix returns to Houston due to heat

David Baker

June 19, 20, 2016

 

 

"PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) -

A flight from Houston to Phoenix had to turn around due to concerns about the heat on Sunday.
 
United Airlines' flight 6186 left Houston and made it into New Mexico.
 
Due to heat-related concerns, the plane diverted back to Houston International Airport, Ericka Wilkerson with Sky Harbor International Airport said.
 
Wilkerson didn't say it was just this flight and not others.
 
Phoenix saw a high of 118 degrees on Sunday, breaking a record of 115 set nearly 50 years ago, according to the National Weather Service. It tied for the fifth-hottest day ever in Phoenix.
 
"The temperature limitation for this aircraft [Embraer 175] to operate safely was 118," according to a United Airlines spokeswoman. "Temperatures are not expected to hit that peak heat today [Monday] so we do not anticipate impact on operations due to the heat."

Mega-heatwave has made Arizona so hot man fries steaks on the street and bakes cookies in his Lamborghini

June 23, 2016

 

 

"With scorching temperatures in Arizona, one man thought he should put the weather to good use when it comes to preparing his food.

 

So on one hot summer day, he decided to fry up some steaks on a pan sitting out on the street and bake cookies on the dashboard inside of his bright orange Lamborghini.

 

While it is not clear how hot it was on this exact day, in the video you can hear the sizzling of the steaks as he places them onto the pan and the cookies appear to be baking in the hot sun.

 

The Arizonan was perhaps able to attempt his cooking activities with the help of the scorching heat as a result of a mega-heatwave sweeping across parts of the Southwest.

Record cold coming to ‘almost entire USA’ – Low temperature records set to be SHATTERED

Marc Morano       Nov. 30, 2016

Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. announced: 'I cannot recall last time I have seen such a cold anomaly forecast across almost entire USA.'

Cold Records are going to be SHATTERED! - “By the end of NEXT week, some states will be running 36 F BELOW NORMAL."
Meteorologist Paul Dorian of Vencore, Inc.: WIDESPREAD BLAST OF COLD AIR PLUNGES FROM ALASKA TO THE WESTERN US EARLY NEXT WEEK AND THEN EXPANDS INTO THE EASTERN US**
New Paper: Global Warming Temperature ‘Pause’ May Last Until 2030

european-model-28nov16

This is according to the European model, which is very accurate this far out.

**WIDESPREAD BLAST OF COLD AIR PLUNGES FROM ALASKA TO THE WESTERN US EARLY NEXT WEEK AND THEN EXPANDS INTO THE EASTERN US**
Overview
"While we end November on a warm note here in the eastern US, there are changes unfolding across the Northern Hemisphere that will likely bring a widespread very cold air mass into the US next week. This cold air mass is first going to arrive in Alaska this upcoming weekend with some spots in that state plunging to 40 degrees below zero and way below normal for early December. After that, the cold air dives into the western US during the first half of next week and then it’ll likely blast into the eastern US late next week.  In fact, by the time Saturday, December 10th rolls around, there may be colder-than-normal conditions all the way from Alaska to the southeastern US.  Beyond that, it looks like this colder pattern will indeed have some staying power as we move deeper into the month of December."

Details
A loop (above) of 12Z GEFS 850 mb (~5000 feet) temperature anomaly forecast maps across North America shows quite well the plunge of the cold air mass next week from Alaska into the western US and then finally its expansion into the eastern US at then end of next week.  The 7-day loop of 850 mb temperature anomaly forecast maps progresses from this Saturday, December 3rd to the following Saturday, December 10th with colder-than-normal conditions shown in blue and purple and the warmer-than-normal air in red and orange.
Following the passage of today’s frontal system, temperatures will cool down here on Thursday and then even colder air pushes in for the weekend with possible snow showers early next week.  We will then likely warm up considerably once again in the eastern US during the middle and latter part of next week ahead of the cold blast which will initially dive into the western US.  A major storm could actually form along the frontal boundary zone by the mid-to-late part of next week which would bring more rain here (at least initially) and perhaps significant accumulating snow to parts of the Upper Midwest.  By the end of next week, the Arctic front separating the warm air to the south and east and cold air to the north and west is likely to plow through the Mid-Atlantic region ushering in the cold air mass all the way down into the Southeast US.  Longer term, signs point to colder-than-normal conditions sticking around here as we progress through the month of December.

Wind Chill 85 Degrees Below Zero On New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Summit

Dec. 16, 2016   

snip  video

 

"CONCORD, N.H. (CBS/AP) — Low temperatures and high winds have put the Northeastern U.S. in a deep freeze.

Dangerous wind chills of 20 to 30 below in parts of the region made for some crippling conditions Friday. CBS News reports that below-freezing temperatures are expected in 49 states between Friday and Sunday.

“You are talking about 30 degrees below normal highs. That is pretty darn cold,” said National Weather Service meteorologist James Brown in Maine. “This is pretty much a piece of Arctic air that came off the North Pole and came into New England.”

 

Forecasters said a storm will follow the frigid weather, bringing chances for snow, sleet and freezing rain across much of the country.

Some schools closed early Thursday and many others delayed opening Friday to avoid a bone-chilling wait at the bus stop.

“We’re not strangers to these sorts of bitter temperatures on Mount Washington’s summit,” senior weather observer Mike Carmon said in the weather observatory’s blog at the highest peak in the Northeast. “However, over the last few winters, it’s generally late January or February before we experience this sort of polar air outbreak.”

The wind chill was down to 85-below at the summit early Friday."

First Week of 2017: Record Cold, 48 States Going Below Freezing

Dec. 28, 2016        Roy D. Spencer Ph.D.

 

"It is increasingly looking like the first full week of 2017 will be greeted with a cold air outbreak over the Lower 48 states that will be widespread and persistent.

Early next week the cold air will enter the U.S. through Montana and the Dakotas, where temperatures will likely plunge into the minus 30 deg F (or colder) range.

By the end of the week, single digits could extend into the southeast U.S., and a hard freeze could push into central Florida (graphic courtesy of Weatherbell.com):

Capturecold.JPG

As can be seen, substantial portions of all 48 states might well be below 32 deg. F.

At the longer range, there appears to be a reinforcing plunge of even more frigid air heading south out of northwest Canada in the second week of January.

Australia’s extreme heatwave is a preview of things to come

Feb. 13, 2017   Alice Klein

 

"The heatwave down under is unusual even for Australia – but it may not be so for much longer. The country is in the grip of one of the most ferocious heatwaves on record, and climate change is being held accountable.

The scorching heat began in South Australia and Victoria last week, before spreading to New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory over the weekend. The heatwave is now moving north through Queensland.

Parts of South Australia and Victoria reached 46 °C, while New South Wales and Queensland recorded temperatures above 47 °C. At least five towns in New South Wales and four in Queensland had their hottest day ever recorded over the weekend.

Moree in northern New South Wales is closest to breaking the state heatwave record of 50 consecutive days over 35 °C. Today marks the 49th day in a row, and the forecast shows no signs of any cooling over the next week.

The heatwave began when a high pressure system stalled over central Australia and caused a build-up of heat, says Karl Braganza at Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. An approaching front then dragged the hot air towards the east coast.

Southwest US preps for 120 temps: Water, water, more water

John Antczak                June 17, 2017

"LOS ANGELES (AP) - When bracing for 120 degrees, it's all about the water.

Drinking it, splashing in it to stay cool, and drinking it some more. A lot more.

That's what officials were urging and residents were planning Friday as a potentially record-shattering heat wave started enveloping the Southwest United States and threatened to bring temperatures of more than 120 degrees to parts of Arizona and California next week.

People in places like Palm Springs and Phoenix are used to seriously high temperatures, but 120 degrees becomes all the talk around the water cooler. And with the health dangers of heat and dehydration, that's where authorities hope they keep coming back.

Teresa Flores in Phoenix said she will make sure her two sons and daughter stay hydrated.

"Water, water, water, water," Flores said. "So even when they think they're not thirsty, they're drinking water."

Jennifer Vollmann brought her 2-year-old daughter to a public pool in downtown Phoenix, where the temperature hit 108 Thursday. With 121 degrees predicted Tuesday, "we'll be here, she'll be in the pool," Vollmann said as her daughter ate a blue ice pop.

Strong high pressure building over Western states is bringing the hot onslaught."

It's so hot in Phoenix, they can't fly planes

June 20, 2017      Zachary Hansen

"PHOENIX — The extreme heat forecast for Phoenix on Tuesday has caused the cancellation of 20 American Airlines flights out of Sky Harbor International Airport. 

According to a statement from American Airlines, the American Eagle regional flights use the Bombardier CRJ aircraft, which has a maximum operating temperature of 118 degrees. Tuesday's forecast for Phoenix included a high of 120 degrees, and the flights that are affected were to take off between 3 and 6 p.m. MT.

Customers affected were told to contact American Airlines for rebooking options or to request a refund."

12 billion gallons of water pour into Lake Tahoe amid this week's heat wave

Amy Graff  June 23, 2017

"The process of the Sierra Nevada spring snow melt sped up this week as a heat wave brought triple-digit temperatures to parts of the Western United States.
A thawing snowpack that's massive after a brutal winter fed rivers and reservoirs with high-flowing runoff.
One place that saw a stunning impact from all the runoff is Lake Tahoe. 
More than 12 billion gallons of water poured into the lake over the past week.
That's a staggering amount of water, and resulted in the lake level rising four inches since June 16.
That rise occurred while intense heat increased evaporation rates from the lake's surface. What's more, water managers have been releasing water from the lake into the Truckee River for the past 120 consecutive days to make room for snow-melt runoff. 
"It's not typical to spill at all," says U.S. District Court Water Master Chad Blanchard. "It's only on the big years when you have to release water."

To further understand the significance of a four-inch gain in a week consider that during the spring snow melt season at the height of the California drought in 2015, the lake rose two and a half inches across several months. 
With all this water, the lake is now only three inches from filling — and will likely reach full capacity in mid-July, Blanchard says."

Makes me think about Oroville Dam that has NO spillway  now, and how interesting that DWR guy, Croyle is retiring on July 1, 2017.

It was 129 degrees in Iran Thursday, which is one of the Earth's hottest temperatures ever recorded

June 29, 2017              Doyle Rice

snip video

 

"The southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz soared to a brutal 129 degrees Thursday, which is Iran's highest temperature ever recorded. 

It's also one of the world's hottest reliably measured temperatures and the highest June temperature in Asia on record. 

The information comes from Etienne Kapikian, a meteorologist with Meteo France, the French national weather service.

Officially, he said the temperature was 53.7 degrees Celsius, which is 128.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Iran’s previous hottest temperature was 127.4 degrees."

snip tweet/map

Another weather source, the Weather Underground, said Ahvaz hit 129.2 degrees Thursday afternoon. The heat index, which also takes humidity into account, hit an incredible 142 degrees. 

Fortunately, the weather forecast for Ahvaz on Friday is for "cooler" weather, with a high of only 119 degrees, according to AccuWeather.

The official all-time world record temperature remains the 134-degree temperature measured at Death Valley, Calif, on July 10, 1913. However, some experts say that temperature isn't reliable. Weather Underground weather historian Christopher Burt said in 2016 that such an extreme temperature was "not possible from a meteorological perspective."

100 in Seattle?   Yeehaw!!! Summer, finally!

July about to go down as hottest month in Miami. Ever.

Elisabeth Koh    July 28, 2017

 

"If you thought July was especially hot for Miami, you’re right.

There are still a few days left to go until August, but Miami is set to have its warmest month on average since the National Weather Service began tracking the temperature in 1895.

The average temperature for most of July has already outpaced every other recorded month by a fraction of a degree as of Friday, with a recorded average of 85.9 degrees, said National Weather Service meteorologist Larry Kelly. The average highs for July have been about a degree hotter than the historical average, and the average lows have been about 2.5 degrees hotter, according to National Weather Service data."
