I'm trying to tell him how Minnesota is doing. We had a Brown Christmas this year. We spent nearly half of December (12 out of 31 days) <em>above</em> freezing. Exactly one week before Christmas it was 45℉. Our average by that time in the month is 24℉.
It seems the ratings are all over the place, 171 is by far the highest I've seen. AccuWeather has it at 155 and forecasted to drop to the low 140s by kickoff.
Edit: AccuWeather's forecast now shows low 130s for kickoff. Obviously just one site, but a good sign that it's tending further downward.
This article claims that not all of the lead service lines have been replaced yet.
Something seems to be ... changing, something, something, something changing? What could it be?

Det har med at de opererer med forskjellig terskel på hva som skal meldes.
Feks hvis det er 49% sjanse for regn og 51% sjanse for full sol vil kanskje den ene si at det er overveiende sannsynlighet for sol og vil da melde dette. De andre vil kanskje si at nå er det en stor nok sjanse for regn, og derfor melde dette.
På AccuWeather opererer de også med "Probability of Precipitation" som kan være ganske nyttig, forsåvidt også cloud cover %.
Symbolvarselet er et resultat av en algoritme som hver tjeneste har bestemt seg for. Hva som er best er forskjellig fra person til person til situasjon til situasjon, så hvis man er veldig avhengig av en mer riktig vurdering kan man gjøre som på Luksusfellen og "sjekke tallene".
Men det skal sies at når man på enkelte steder kan oppleve alle fire årstider på like lang tid det tar å lese denne tråden så er det ikke lett

At some point I honestly don't know who to believe, it's not my area of expertise and I just don't know who has their facts straight and who is making assumptions.. take it all with a grain of salt I suppose.
A polar vortex is a large pocket of very cold air, typically the coldest air in the Northern Hemisphere, which sits over the polar region during the winter season.
The frigid air can find its way into the United States when the polar vortex is pushed farther south, occasionally reaching southern Canada and the northern Plains, Midwest and northeastern portions of the United States.
A large, powerful high pressure system originating in the Eastern or Western Pacific and stretching to the North Pole is required to displace the pocket of cold air.
"These high pressure systems can reach Alaska, but it is not typical to stretch all the way to the North Pole," according to AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson.
The vortex is capable of delivering subzero temperatures to the United States and Canada for several days at a time.
When the strong air from the Eastern or Western Pacific weakens and falls apart, the polar vortex will retreat into place near the North Pole.
In case you don't know, there is a hurricane (Henri) heading our way. It was supposed to stay out at sea but it turned in our direction yesterday. I suggest stocking up on things you may need.
For everyone who is confused, the flash flood warning doesn't start until Thursday evening (1/28) at 7pm. It's not for right now. We're supposed to get another big storm Thursday night into Friday. Some areas might get 2-3 inches of rain.
It actually was the exact same as the historical average (82).
Except he absolutely was not.
"It's going to be -20 to -30 WITH the windchill"
"-20 yes WITH the windchill, nothing shows anything close to -30..."
The real feel includes wind chill amongst other factors.
Will it though ? I can't help but think that the disappearance of that much localized biomass could have a direct effect on local rainfall/weather patterns. A quick google search points to this article which suggests the same - and in fact says that the amazon forest is so big it affects weather patterns globally.
And they apparently brought something to keep their bleach warm since it freezes at around 18F and it was well below zero that night.
It's a tornado. From Accuweather:
>A large tornado in northeastern China Tuesday caused widespread damage and was blamed for one death and at least 16 injuries.
>According to Reuters, a potent storm moving through a suburb of the city of Harbin produced a tornado between 5:30 and 6 p.m., local time, impacting four local townships. Harbin is located in Heilongjiang Province.
>Residents taking shelter from the storm captured dramatic videos of the tornado swirling through the countryside and hurling debris and other objects in the air that were in its path as it tore through a small town.
>In addition to the fatality, 16 people were being treated for injuries with one person in serious condition, according to Reuters. In the wake of the storms, a total of 243 villagers were evacuated.
From Reuters twitter
>How are they allowed to lock two men in a van for 8 hours on a hot day? Surely that’s a human right violation or something. If it was a dog it wouldn’t of been allowed for over an hour, without someone breaking the windoe
Are you sure? I was under the impression sleet was freezing rain (slushy) and hail is chunks of ice.
Edit: I googled that for myself. [link]
Greenhouse effect my dude...
Preliminary studies done in Canada and Australia show that the temperature outside can be double, or even triple, in a car.
Experts say even 60 degree Farenheit is too hot for animals in a car, and if it's too hot for an adult dog, it's too hot for a baby human.
And, this table shows that even 10 minutes can heat the interior of a car up by 19 degrees F.
Although he is making this sound exciting - "It's a beast" - these values are pretty standard for rocketry.
Atlas V, for example, has 61 km/h ground wind requirements
As for high altitudes, the speed is not as important as the change in speed (known as wind shear).
The problem is, turning your flashers on doesn't make you more visible. It makes it look like you are standing still, not moving down the road. So it is more dangerous to drive with your flashers on. They should only be used if you are standing still.
There are already at least 26 dead people: (and i suspect much more) https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/dangerous-india-heat-wave-to-worsen-as-temperatures-approach-all-time-highs-in-new-delhi-this-weekend/70008472

You're getting downvoted but, are you wrong? The coldest month in Dallas is January. It was in the 80s multiple times in January in Dallas this year. That makes it pretty tough to keep the ice playable, right?
Because Typhoon Maria is quite a long way south of Hiroshima prefecture and isn't expected to veer anywhere near it.

You're absolutely right! It's the last 33 years that have shown it!!
> April 2018 averaged 0.83 degrees Celsius above the 20th century average, which places last month as the third warmest April on record. Records go all the way back to 1880. The warmest April on record is still April 2016 (+1.08 degrees Celsius), while the second warmest April occurred in 2017.
>This also makes this the 42nd consecutive April and 400th consecutive month with global average surface temperatures averaging above the 20th century average.
How the fuck can someone who knows nothing about an issue be so confident in their position? You are the 30%. You are the minority group that's fucking up the country and world.
This storm system killed over 30 people. They got 1.5 month's worth of rain in 36 hours.
Tornado newbie myself but from looking at the Weather Service alert it looks like it started in Harlem/Bronx and is moving north so unless you're up there we're probably fine?
>* At 905 PM EDT, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado
was located over Harlem, or over Mott Haven, moving northeast at 25
SOURCE...Radar indicated rotation.
IMPACT...Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without
shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed.
Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur. Tree
damage is likely.
* This dangerous storm will be near... East Tremont and Throgs Neck
Bridge around 915 PM EDT. Co-op City around 920 PM EDT. Bronxville
and City Island around 925 PM EDT. New Rochelle around 930 PM EDT.
We'll be EXTREME until tomorrow evening for a "Coastal Event". Big waves, I guess. I'm 20km inland (that's about 12 miles). They'd have to be really big to get me.
Extremely overhyped, like "raising awareness" campaigns. We should be giving credit to kids like Anna Du who actually have solutions and aren't just repeating talking points.
Also her family are members/supporters of antifa
It might rain before or during the GP if the weather radar is to be believed. Take this with a grain of salt tho because I posted the same thing last week and we all know that it didn't rain.
What the fuck is wrong with 2018?
In some regions this will be a difference of 25°C in just a few days.
Can't this just be over already, it's been going on since april.
I can't remember the last time my well-being was affected this much by the weather.
Also it's perfectly reasonable to drive below the speed limit in heavy rain but for gods sake keep your hazard lights OFF unless you're actively stopped and can't move.
I mean, Kansas isn't in an ideal location, but everyone should be able to see something.
I'm not going to crucify anyone, it's just that the Babushka Tape has all the markings of a conspiracy theory, down to the details like that.
According to a quick Google search, it was 67 F that day. Definitely abnormally warm, but not to the point that you'd look twice at someone wearing a coat.
Of course! Modern capitalism recognizes that absurdity.
Capitalism dictates that as an individual, you only get to own a few inches of the surface of "your" land.
Mineral rights are owned by some other corporation.
Water rights by yet another corporation. etc.
[wish I could say /s]
Specifically this bit:
>Despite the water test results, the replacement of all lead service lines is not yet complete, leaving many residents fearful that the water might not be safe in every home.
I don't know man, hazards disable your turn signals/indicators which is dangerous enough, but the constant flashing lights, especially in groups, make it much more difficult to judge the distance to the hazard-activated cars in front of you. Hazard lights are meant for exactly that - hazards, i.e. stopped cars or cars going significantly slower than everybody else. Using hazards while driving with the flow of traffic often just adds to the confusion and anxiety of driving in low-vis situations and should always be avoided.
Not going to be as bad as previous years. We're still going to be above zero but if you're just standing around and not moving, it's going to suck.

These guys show it as 114F (45.5C) but google weather on my phone said it was 117. Either way it was a record temp and stupidly hot. It was over 100F (37.7C) at 8pm at night. I recall at one point thinking "Jesus, the air is only a few degrees shy of a rare steak"
Look in the square for Friday July 6th.
Not sure, but I've heard reports that it acts like wintertime flus & colds, I.e. doesn't like heat/humidity and dies much faster, which is why it's not as prevalent on warmer climes right now. It may go away on its own in a couple months if that's true.
edit: here's the source, no idea how valid this might be.
> [Static fire] is currently expected to take place on January 6, although – as always – these dates can move around due to numerous factors such as readiness, range authority and weather.

I wonder if this could be a feedback mechanism to cool the planet. Ice melts, decreasing mantle pressure, increasing volcanic activity, sunlight blocked, temperature drops.

The hurricane season is off to an ominous start. Cristobal is the earliest ever 3rd named storm in the Atlantic basin, and could approach the gulf coast as a hurricane.
These kind of slow-moving, hail-dumping thunderstorms are not uncommon in this region. In fact, we typically see at least one of these storms each year in a north-south strip from the west-central plains into Mexico. It's just a typical thunderstorm fueled by the combination of dry mountain air and moist, gulf air. This time of year, the jet stream has migrated north and so these storms can exist under areas of almost no steering, so hail-producing storms can stay nearly stationary for hours.
Typically they don't hit a major city so you don't hear much about them, but check out some of these other incidents:
In New Mexico in 2004, hail piled as high as 15 feet! (see picture)
correct, here is an article talking about that
Even if we grant the Yellowstone story a grain of truth, it probably cannot be replicated in the Netherlands because whatever wolves did in the Yellowstone was from suppressing a massive elk population. There is no massive elk or deer population in the Netherlands.
... AT&T branded phone; Sunbeam branded space heater. Receipt appears to be from Flagstaff, AZ.

So ... question seems relevant because reasons.
I mean -- sure, if you want to be sensationalist. I'm not denying global warming as a fact.
But the article's opens up regarding the World Series record for home runs. And all DeJong was doing was testing the age old theory that the hotter it is, the farther a ball flies. And he found that it's somewhat true and that a bell curve exists.
So if you ignore the obvious juiced ball there, was the home run spike this year in the World Series a result of heat? Maybe, but there is a lot of statistical noise here:
But maybe just maybe the fact that this World Series was played in Houston, TX and Los Angeles, CA has much more to do with it. Houston which had an historical offensive season, 4th best ever in WRC+, has a temperature controlled environment being in a domed Stadium. I would imagine just like any other public business, the temperature of the stadium is kept between the 68-75 degree sweet spot that DeJong concluded with his findings.
And in game 2 of the World Series, the Astros and Dodgers hit 5 home runs in the 10th and 11th innings. Late around that time, the temperature had fallen to ~70 degrees.
So if anything, we should be contributing the spike in home runs in the World Series to be partially attributed to the fact that we had two warm weathered cities in the World Series. That's the first time this has happened since the 2002 World Series between the Angels and the Giants. And guess what the previous record was? 21, set by the 2002 World Series between the Angels and Giants.
According the US Forest Service (circa 2006, via AccuWeather), about 800 wild fires per year (3.4% of all wildfires) in the US are caused by cigarette butts. Apparently that is a 90% reduction from the 1980s.
Campfires account for a whopping 49%.
49% chance of rain at 7pm
5% chance of rain from 8-11pm.

The rain radar is predicting it will rain until 12. From about 11 Southampton will be the only place in England where there's rain. Literally can't make this stuff up. [link]
It's not going to be great. Here is the air quality forecast:
You'll see a daily AQI forecast about 2/3 down the page. The air quality is getting "better", but far from normal and still not healthy to be outside doing anything fun. I'm still not thrilled about having to take my dog for a walk with this air quality.
I think a couple of restaurants had briefly shut their outdoor dining due to air quality; Torc closed patio seating on Friday and was seating indoor only (a point of irony that they had recognized). You would still have plenty of dining options.
At the end of the day, even if the smoke is letting up, you're still coming during a pandemic, and let me tell you: wear a mask if you come. The number of tourists walking the streets with no masks on (until they want to get seated at a restaurant) is unbelievable.
Basically, there are some states or local councils that outlaw certain rainwater collection methods due to a possible passive impact on the environment. I think these are generally meant to regulate farming activities but they do affect people in regular private homes as well. Generally just things that you might want to do, but then find out they've been outlawed for some strange reason and they leave you scratching your head and staring at an empty rainwater bucket.
Here's a good article from accuweather that goes over some of the stricter states. This obviously isn't a big ticket item for me or anything, it's just a bit of a microcosm of this kind of thinking.

Two years ago Denver recorded its first triple digit day in September in 150 years of record keeping. Before that day the record was 97, which had been recorded five times.
Last year it was 99 on both Sept 5th and 6th.
It was 97 degrees yesterday and 96 today.
Summers really are becoming hotter, drier, and longer and this is only the beginning.

Hasn't this been heavily debunked as junk science? looked it up here is a link. To be clear they are saying bringing them back was good and needed, but its not what caused the changes.
Except this gif and video are fake news. As explained by several ecologists here.
Just reminds me of the other animal myths passed around. "Daddy long legs are the most venomous spiders, but their fangs are too blunt to pierce human skin!"
as the sun falls lower in the sky, the spectrum of direct sunlight is shifted from blue toward a perceived red, yellow and orange. “When this setting light is transmitted by a massively thick cloud composed of water droplets and ice particles, the results are a green sky,”
But you’re right about it not definitely meaning there will be a tornado

2 down = 115.
3 down = 133.

5 down = 188.
6 down = 224.
You got me curious what the highest value ever seen might be...I can't find any solid answers, but this post by a meteorologist claims to have seen values "over 80" before in the Midwest. This paper (PDF warning) looked at 560+ giant hail events between 1995 and 2009 and only 26 of those got to 75 dBz or above. Whatever happened in that storm, it was very significant I'm sure!
I am afraid the terrible weather is really going to fuck things up on the east coast. Please, for the love of god, endure the shitty weather and just vote. You may not get wet at all. There is no second chance tomorrow, the next opportunity is in 2 years and it may rain on election day then as well. Just bring an umbrella and vote.

And, some buildings have one-directional A/C-heat systems, where they can only activate one at a time. The fall has a period of a couple weeks where some buildings are 60 before the heat kicks in, and the spring has some that get up to 80 before the A/C.

"From Wednesday morning through Thursday morning....The remnants of Ida will interact with a stalled front, resulting in a prolonged period of heavy rainfall beginning Wednesday morning and continuing through Wednesday night. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized amounts up to 6 inches possible... This amount of heavy rainfall will not only result in the potential for considerable flash flooding of creeks, small streams, and urban areas, but also the potential for river flooding on the main stem rivers."
Grab yer raincoat.
Are you sure you aren't reading the "feels like" temperature? I went to Accuweather to look at the temperatures New York City had in August, and the highest temperature that they have is 92 degrees, and the average high for the month was about 84 degrees. That is a little warmer than the historical average of around 82-83, but I wouldn't be alarmed by that alone. It is impossible to look at just one month in one location and interpret it to be a result of climate change. Climate patterns occur over the course of years and decades, so don't let a few hot days convince you the planet is going to be destroyed. I also notice how much of your post revolves around how you feel, so I would recommend doing research on climate change to see if your feelings actually have merit. None of this is to suggest that climate change is not happening, but I do not think most of the scientific community agrees with your outlook that it will lead to "the inevitable collapse of the entire planet."

Got the same, but... March 1 is meteorological spring.
The spring season associated with the vernal equinox, called astronomical spring, happens on or around March 20 in the Northern Hemisphere, but meteorologists recognize March 1 as the first day of meteorological spring, which is based on annual temperature cycles and the Gregorian calendar.
This is a detailed article why Barry probably won't be another Katrina, for New Orleans anyway.
Even if goes over 20 feet it is not a levy failure, it's a spill over which they have designed for and can mitigate. It only gets real bad if the levy breaks and the entire river floods in. They are more worried about low laying areas elsewhere like a back door somewhere that pushes water in.
You are exactly right about that specific date, however looking at this historical information shows that 1) that was the coldest recorded temp of the month, and 2) this weather does seem far from typical. We have only had 10 days so far that have been 69 degrees or higher. Last year that number would have been doubled. I'm not sure where rain is at for this year, but based on the link there seemed to be only two significant rainfalls.
Anomalies happen, but I hope this trend doesn't continue. The numbers themselves seem a bit shocking when looking at the data
Yes it can - in 10 minutes it is up to 89' already. A car on a 60 degree day can heat up to 100 degrees, and 90% of that is already heated in under 15 minutes. So in less than 15 minutes you are already looking at temperatures over 90 degrees. The weather channel had a link on it. [link]

Smoke is not your concern typically in mid-September. Cooler temperatures and rain is more a concern.
I recommend keeping your plans at this time.
Looking at the long term forecast. Looks like mixed conditions.
Not OP but there ya go
I grew up about an hour and a half south of Tobermory, and in March? Most likely you're looking at some residual snow on the ground, but not a lot of new snow falling. It'll be cold, but usually hovering around the 0 mark (32 degrees in your freedom units) on average, and around 5 degrees plus or minus that.
You're definitely in for some cold nights though, and the weather probably won't be entirely pleasant. Likely a mix of snow, freezing rain and plain old rain that freezes later.
That being said, it's also not unheard of for it to be like 15 degrees and sunny. [link]
That was this year. You can see that between the 5th of March to the 11th the temperature ranged from -17 degrees to 15 degrees. Which is basically "really fucking cold" to "quite pleasant."
I am really curious if the Old River Control Structure is going to survive this storm. If it doesn't the damage will be in the tens to hundreds of billions. The impact on global trade is very hard to forecast. If it fails, the Mississippi will flow down the Atchafayala river basin instead of towards New Orleans. The Mississippi wants the Atchafayla - silt build up has made its current path significantly higher elevation than the Atchafayla.

Because the right often says the dangers from COVID have been exaggerated, and that the people pushing masks and lockdowns and all sorts of stuff don't want to consider the economic or psychological damage. Unless you count "the government should just give everyone free money (except big business)".
There's also marked hypocrisy when many people on the left support BLM marches, which certainly don't social distance and often wear ineffective masks. Not that bandanas were exactly medical grade to begin with.
