I will start w/some of the cold temps
Jan. 1 snow cover set U.S. record

January 4, 2013

"Snow coverage in the United States on New Year's Day was the most in 10 years with 67 percent of the 48 contiguous states covered by snow, meteorologists say.

That surpassed the previous record set in 2010, when the new year saw 61 percent of the United States beneath snow, AccuWeather.com reported Thursday.

That was the year of the mid-Atlantic blizzard dubbed "Snowmaggedon" that set a long list of records in cities such as Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore."


New Delhi suffers coldest day in 44 years
Jan 3. 2013

"New Delhi has suffered its coldest day in 44 years amid a cold snap across northern India, the local weather office said on Thursday.

The maximum day temperature on Wednesday reached just 9.8 degrees Celsius (49.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the lowest since the winter of 1969 when records first began, an official in the local meteorological department told AFP, with a minimum of 4.8 Celsius.

There is expected to be little respite in the coming few days with the weather office forecasting that chilly conditions will prevail."


More than 100 die of exposure in cold snap

Jan. 3, 2013

"LUCKNOW // More than 100 people have died of exposure as northern India deals with unusually low temperatures.

At least 114 people have died from the cold in the state of Uttar Pradesh, a police spokesman, Surendra Srivastava, said yesterday. At least 23 of those died in the past 24 hours.

Mr Srivastava said many of the dead were poor people whose bodies were found on sidewalks or in parks."


Australia's Hobart experiences hottest day

Jan. 4, 2013

"Australia's southern island of Tasmania has experienced its hottest day since records began, with the capital Hobart sweltering at 41.8 Celsius (107.2 Fahrenheit) on Friday.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the temperature in Tasmania, where records have been kept since the early 1880s, beat the previous high of 40.8 Celsius set in January 1976.

"There are only three or four (days) on record over 40 degrees so it's quite rare," said Melbourne-based Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Murray Keable."

BUSHFIRE season arrived in force yesterday as emergency fire crews in five states fought blazes amid record temperatures and ominously dry conditions.

In Tasmania, east of Hobart, fires destroyed as many as 65 buildings at Dunalley and 15 at Boomer Bay. There were also unconfirmed reports that one life had been lost.

Fires burned out of control in Victoria and South Australia where temperatures were well above 40C and strong southwesterly winds worsened conditions.

Tasmanian fire authorities were making comparisons to the conditions that led to the 2009 Black Saturday fires in Victoria that left 173 people dead, state fire chief Mike Brown declaring "we reached catastrophic fire danger ratings at times this afternoon".


Buenos Aires Swelters Amid Heat Wave, Power Outages

"BUENOS AIRES – A blistering heat wave, power outages and a fuel shortage added up Tuesday to a second day of hellish conditions in Greater Buenos Aires, home to about a quarter of Argentina’s 40 million people.

Amid a plethora of recommendations by the authorities on how to deal with the soaring temperatures, which on Tuesday were expected to reach 36 C (97 F), people took refuge in any shade they could find to get out of the blazing heat of the Argentine summer.

The National Meteorological Service renewed this Tuesday a high alert for the Argentine capital and its surrounding areas due to the high temperatures, which created scenes the total opposite of those seen these days in snowbound Europe and the United States.

“The city of Buenos Aires (with its 2.8 million inhabitants) has a summer average of 90 deaths per day but, for example, during the heat wave at the beginning of 2001 it went up to 250 deaths in a single day,” the weather service warned on its Web site.


Polar bear killed by HEATWAVE:

Argentine animal dies after becoming 'nervous and irritated' amid scorching heat and noise from Christmas Eve fireworks

By Sam Adams

"'Winner' died of hyperthermia at Buenos Aires Zoo after overheating in high summer temperatures
Polar bear was also thought to have been frightened by noise from Christmas Eve fireworks
Animal was one of the most popular attractions at the Argentinian Zoo"

"The last remaining polar bear at Buenos Aires Zoo has died after overheating in soaring summer temperatures.

'Winner,' who was one of best loved attractions at the zoo, is believed to have been unable to control its body temperature in the extreme heat of the Argentinian summer and died of hyperthermia.

The animal, which was covered in heavy fur to cope with freezing conditions in its native Artic habitat, was also believed to have been frightened by the noise from fireworks let off to celebrate Christmas Eve."

Temperatures in China, coldest in nearly 3 decades

January 6, 2013

Temperatures in China have plunged to their lowest in almost three decades, cold enough to freeze coastal waters and trap 1,000 ships in ice, official media said at the weekend. Since late November the country has shivered at an average of minus 3.8 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit), 1.3 degrees colder than the previous average, and the chilliest in 28 years, state news agency Xinhua said on Saturday, citing the China Meteorological Administration. Bitter cold has even frozen the sea in Laizhou Bay on the coast of Shandong province in the east, stranding nearly 1,000 ships, the China Daily newspaper reported.

'It's all gone, every last item': Grandfather who saved wife and five grandchildren from Australian wildfire returns home to find it completely destroyed

Mr Holmes said: 'We saw tornadoes of fire just coming towards us'

The grandfather who helped his wife and five grandchildren escape a Tasmanian bushfire by leading them to safety under a jetty returned to his house to find it completely destroyed, he revealed today.

Tim Holmes, 62, built his home himself but was helpless to save it as 'tornadoes of fire' swept through his village of Dunalley.

As they became surrounded by flames, his only option was to shepherd his family into the sea, where they sought refuge for nearly three hours before fleeing in a dinghy.

11 dead as Mideast battered by hail, snow, rain

Ramallah, Palestinian Territories (AFP) Jan 9, 2013

"Abnormal storms which for four days have blasted the Middle East with rain, snow and hail have left at least 11 people dead and brought misery to Syrian refugees huddled in camps.

Officials reported that two women were found dead in the West Bank on Wednesday after their car was swept away in floods, while a 30-year-old man froze to death in Taalabaya, in Lebanon's Bekaa province, after he fell asleep drunk in his car.

Snow carpeted Syria's war-torn cities but sparked no let-up in the fighting, instead heaping fresh misery on a civilian population already enduring a chronic shortage of heating fuel and daily power cuts.

In Jerusalem, schools closed at midday and driving wind, hail and rain battered the city as temperatures hovered just above freezing and the polar air mass moving down from Russia sent temperatures plummeting as far south as Cairo.

Raging winds and flash floods caused widespread damage to infrastructure across the Palestinian territories.

"The Palestinian infrastructure is deeply flawed and unable to handle weather like this," said Ghassan Hamdan, head of medical relief in the northern city of Nablus."


We need help. Urgent help. If this situation continues, our children will die."

Conditions were little better for Syrian refugees in neighbouring Lebanon, where the UN refugee agency began moving those living under canvas.

"With this very harsh weather, shelters have been threatened and now that snow is hitting the Bekaa people are really in need of assistance," UNHCR external relations officer Cecile Fradot told AFP.

"Today we are relocating families whose shelters have been flooded in the north," she said.

In Syria itself, state television broadcast regular live reports from the snow-covered streets of Damascus, while activists in the battleground city of Homs posted images of a mosque in a rebel-held neighbourhood cloaked in white."

Surprise winter storm creates travel woes across N. Texas

Jan. 15, 2013

By Bill Hanna

"An unexpected winter storm that struck North Texas before daybreak Tuesday put morning commuters on ice, canceled flights and forced some schools to open later than normal.

Forecasters had predicted a slight chance of light sleet but had said that most of the precipitation should stay southeast of Dallas-Fort Worth.


"It's always a challenge to predict winter precipitation in North Texas," said Nick Hampshire, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth. "It's always a fine line. If it had been two or three degrees warmer, we would have been talking about a rain event."

Many parts of Tarrant County received as much as a half-inch of sleet and snow, the most significant icy precipitation since the Christmas Day storm, said Dan Shoemaker, another weather service meteorologist.

But don't expect a repeat this morning. Promise, the weather service said."

"Heavy snow that blanketed eastern Japan over the holiday weekend left one man dead and 900 others injured, as Tokyo commuters Tuesday took to the slippery streets.

A low-pressure system, dubbed a "bomb cyclone" by local press, dumped eight centimetres (three inches) of snow in nine hours, the heaviest snowfall in the region since January 2006, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

It left 13 centimetres of snow in neighbouring Yokohama, while mountainous areas around Tokyo saw up to 30 centimetres.

A 71-year-old man in Shiojiri city, Nagano prefecture, died after falling into an open drain as he cleared snow around his house, a fire service spokesman said.

National broadcaster NHK said at least 891 injuries had been recorded in Tokyo and the area around it, many of them elderly people who had slipped on snow-covered streets or motorists involved in accidents

Shimla snowfall at eight-year record


"Shimla, Jan 19: The Queen of the Hills, as Shimla was fondly called by the British, recorded the highest snowfall on a single day January in the past eight years, a Met official said here Saturday.

Manmohan Singh, director of the meteorological office here, told IANS that the town recorded 38.6 cm snow in the past 24 hours, the highest in the first month of the year since 2005.

"The maximum snow in a day in January was recorded was in 2005. It was 33.2 cm Jan 18," he said, adding: "On two consecutive days (Jan 17 and 18 this year) the town got 63.6 cm."


'Incredible:' Another snowless record on tap for Chicago

"Whether you like it or not, we will officially break another record for no snow today, according to the National Weather Service.

"It's pretty incredible," said NWS meteorologist Gino Izzi. "It's the middle of January and there's no snow on the ground. Dallas, Texas has had more snow than us."


Wild Weather Strikes Across the Globe

By Mark Russell,  Newser Staff

"Newser) – It was a wild day for weather around much of the world today, as snow hit the southeastern United States and Britain while record heat baked Australia. In Virginia, 13 inches of snow hit some areas, while in Mississippi two to four inches fell in places, reports the AP. At least one car accident death was attributed to the weather, and thousands lost power. Meanwhile in Britain, snow and ice closed one Heathrow Airport runway for 45 minutes and caused 180 flights to be canceled. Up to 12 inches of snow are expected in some areas around London today, according to the AP.

Down under, however, much of Australia baked today. The temperature reached 114.4 degrees Fahrenheit in Sydney, breaking the old record of 113.5 set in 1939, reports AFP. Just west of the city in Penrith, the mercury climbed even higher to nearly 116. What's being called a "dome of heat" over the country's outback center is creating a heat wave over 70% of Australia. "The length, extent, and severity of the current heat wave are unprecedented in the measurement record," said a government climate change report."

January hottest month on record in Australia

Feb. 2, 2013


Surfers hit the waves at Bondi beach in Sydney, on January 4, 2013. Australia experienced its hottest month on record in January, despite floods and storms that devastated parts of the country's east, according to officials.

Australia experienced its hottest month on record in January, despite floods and storms that devastated parts of the country's east, officials said.

"The Bureau of Meteorology said both the average mean temperature of 29.68 degrees Celsius (85.42 degrees Fahrenheit) and the average mean maximum temperature of 36.92 Celsius surpassed previous records set in January 1932. The nation's central outback sweltered under a "dome" of heat for much of the month, with the Northern Territory posting its hottest mean temperature on record for January of 31.93 Celsius, the bureau said.

"The national average maximum temperature on 7 January was the highest on record. Numerous stations set records for the most days in succession above 40 degrees Celsius, including Alice Springs (17 days) and Birdsville (31 days)."

The bureau said a large number ofweather stations set all-time record high temperatures during the heatwave, including Sydney (45.8 Celsius on January 18) and Hobart (41.8 Celsius on January 4). The highest temperature recorded during the heatwave was at Moomba in South Australia, which hit a scorching 49.6 Celsius on 12 January.

Study Shows Mother Earth Heading Toward Highest Temperatures in Human History by End Century

MARCH 9, 2013



"Greenhouse gases and thus temperatures are skyrocketing and will most likely reach epic proportions by the year 2100, scientists at Oregon State University and Harvard University have found.

Funded by the National Science Foundation’s Paleoclimate Program, and published in the March 8 issue of the journal Science, the study covers 11,300 years and finds temperatures higher than they have been over 70 to 80 percent of that time, OSU said in a statement on March 7.

A team headed by Shaun Marcott, a postdoctoral researcher in OSU’s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Studies, reached further back than most other studies, which he said usually don’t go beyond 2,000 years ago, to give the current climate change issues some context. They studied data from 73 sites around the world, to tell Earth’s temperature history back to the end of the last Ice Age. The current age, called the Holocene, began when the great ice sheets of northern Turtle Island and Europe receded. What they found may well heat up the climate change debate.

First, Earth cooled about 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit for most of the past 5,000 years, but warmed back up by the same amount over just the past 100 years, the researchers said. And the bigger the land masses and the larger the populations, the warmer it got—as in the Northern Hemisphere."

The Temperature in One South Dakota Town Just Rose 70 Degrees in 24 Hours



May 14, 2013

"On Sunday, the low temperature was 22 degrees in Aberdeen, South Dakota — that's ten degrees below freezing. The next day, according to the National Weather Service, the high hit 92. That's a swing of 70 degrees in 24 hours.

Over the course of the month, the weather was generally fairly consistent, on the low end of normal temperatures. Fairly suddenly, it jumped up."

Major Western United States Heatwave To Hit End Week into Weekend

June 23, 2013

"A ridge of high pressure will cause elevated temperatures across most of the Western United States, from Arizona and California, northward to the US/Canada border.  This also may bring the first monsoon storms to the region as this abnormally large ridge of high pressure takes hold."


It’s that time of the year again, where a hot desert meets the Summer.  Temperatures in the 100s across Phoenix will turn to 115+, with 120+ along the Colorado River Valley as a ridge of high pressure builds in the area.

This ridge will be very large, bringing temperatures 15-20 degrees higher than normal for Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, New Mexico, and Utah.  Other areas like Montana, and Wyoming may also be in the outer fridges of the heatwave ridge.

With that heat will bring monsoonal moisture into play, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah may see the first monsoonal thunderstorms of the season with this event.


They are talking hot. Gee, feast or famine.  How about we split the difference, give us a little heat, them a little rain..

New study finds "nighttime heat waves" increasing in Pacific Northwest

July 24, 2013

"A new study has found that heat waves are increasing in the western portions of the Pacific Northwest, but not the kind most people envision, with scorching hot days of temperatures reaching triple digits. These heat waves occur at night.

Researchers documented 15 examples of "nighttime heat waves" from 1901 through 2009 and 10 of those have occurred since 1990. Five of them took place during a four-year period from 2006-09. And since the study was accepted for publication in the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology, another nighttime heat wave took place at the end of this June, the authors point out.

"Most people are familiar with daytime heat waves, when the temperatures get into the 100s and stay there for a few days," said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University and a co-author on the study. "A nighttime heat wave relates to how high the minimum temperature remains overnight."


The latest nighttime heat wave began in late June of this year, and continued into early July, Dello said.

"Like many nighttime heat waves, a large high-pressure ridge settled in over the Northwest, while at the same time, some monsoonal moisture was coming up from the Southwest," she pointed out. "The high swept around and grabbed enough moisture to elevate the humidity and trap the warm air at night."

Global warming?… Chile hit with worst cold spell in 80 years



Anyone looking to get some delicious Chilean fruit this winter is going to be disappointed, as the worst frost in more than 80 years has damaged 50 million boxes of fruit exports — causing the country to declare a state of emergency in its agricultural sector.

The Chilean Fresh Fruit Exporters Association said that freezing temperatures throughout mid-September hit the country’s fruit growers with the coldest frost since 1929. Temperatures fell to an average of 19 degrees Fahrenheit for an average of seven hours in several of the Chile’s growing regions, contributing to a huge drop-off in fruit exports.

Chilean growers exported about 282 million boxes of fruit last year, and experts believe that exports will fall short of that by about 50 million boxes for this year. However, when production increases are taken into account, the total frost damage to fruit production could be closer to 60 million or 65 million boxes.


for those of us juicing, this could be disastrous.!

Coldest temperatures in 40 years headed for western Montana

December 3, 2013

Rob Chaney



Justin Grigg Missoulian

Ice forms on the Clark Fork River in downtown Missoula recently. Subzero wind chills are expected across western Montana this week.


An arctic air mass moving into western Montana on Thursday and Friday should send temperatures to the single digits and push wind chills well below zero.

“Most people around here, if they haven’t lived up here in the last 30 years, may not have seen this before,” National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Kitsmiller said in a conference call Tuesday. “This could be a period where we have some of the coldest average temperatures we’ve had in 40 years.”

One cold front was already getting established over the Rocky Mountains on Tuesday, which dropped the mercury from 41 on Monday to 22 on Tuesday afternoon in Missoula. The next front should be considerably harsher, Kitsmiller said.

“We could have places on Friday that don’t reach zero degrees,” Kitsmiller said. “There’s some moisture coming, but only ice crystals or very light snow.”

8) Dare i comment on this !     hmmm


There was no considerable weather front coming in from the Pacific.


There was no considerable weather front coming in from the Gulf of Mexico.


There was no considerable weather front coming from anywhere in the states or for that matter Canada.


So, where has this huge Epic Ice Storm CLEON come from !!


From , a multiplex of arrays , multiple simultaneous ground sources , i.e., radar stations !


High Frequency Ice Nucleation 


This is how the Temperature can drop @ 80 Degrees to 30 Degrees Overnight ! & visa versa !


Massive amounts of Super Heated Water Vapour are produced from power stations and the likes of , when this Water Vapour bursts it combines with Nano - Bio - Chem Materials in ' Frequency Activated Areas ' it instantaneously turns or Flashes to Heavy Wet Snow / Sleet / Ice / Hail. See the Clouds in the Sky , they do not look or act as if they are Real.


Take care this winter will you please, be prepared. Remember the last one with the unfortunate death of so many cattle, from out of nowhere that storm came.


How did the 4KM NMM ' know ' there would be massive amounts of Super Heated Water Vapour instantly materialise in that part of the country ?


From the link ; http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/weathermatrix/epic-ice-storm-possible-this-week/20648852



Yesterday, the 4KM NMM model printed out 5 inches of sleet!
