  • Winter 2018-2019 stars early, too early

    The headline is a direct quote from the National Weather Service!
    Huge cold outbreak coming to Wyoming and Nebraska. 

    Note the text of last paragraph: “…some locations may break their record low by 10 to 15 degrees.”  Ouch.

    Also, a threat of heavy snow, with snowfall rates between 1 to 2 inches per  hour

    National Weather Service – 13 Oct 2018

    An unusually cold outbreak is expected with very cold air already starting to work its way southward across the forecast area. Surface cold front has moved into the Colorado plains this afternoon and is stalled along the Laramie Range. Temperatures have fallen into the 40s with Cheyenne`s temperatures now at 50F (10C) after a high of 60F (15.5C) earlier.

    Expect this front to continue moving southwest into the mountains through tonight. Recent webcams along and east of I-25 show that any rainfall has switched to snow with snow reported in Douglas. This trend will continue into this evening .

    Across far southeast Wyoming and far southwest Nebraska, (we) may need to extend the Winter Storm Warning in Banner, Kimball, and maybe even Scottsbluff county. Most ensemble members are more aggressive with precipitation amounts as well, so will
    need to keep an eye on snowfall rates through this evening.

    On the other hand, The HRRR and the NAM show an area of drier air near the surface at the onset of this event, mainly impacting areas between Laramie, Chugwater, and Cheyenne. This may cut snow totals locally, but will keep previous snow totals as is due to the threat of heavy snow and snowfall rates between 1 to 2 inches per  hour for a few hours. (emphasis added)

    Extended the Winter Weather Advisory into the rest of western Nebraska in addition to Niobrara county. 12z model runs continue the trend of showing higher QPF and snowfall amounts from Lusk southeast towards Chadron and Alliance through late this evening, so increased total snow accumulations. …Overnight temperatures in the teens to low 20s are expected with wind chills in the single digits above and below zero (below -17.7 C). Moderate to heavy snowfall should come to an end after midnight.

    Very cold temperatures for this early in the season will be the main concern late Sunday and especially Sunday night. … With little or no wind, clearing skies, and a surface snow pack across much of the area, excellent radiational cooling is expected. Most of the area will likely have record low temperatures, and some locations may break their record low by 10 to 15 degrees. (emphasis added)

    Continued to lower temperatures with lows mainly in the single digits across the region, including western Nebraska. Expect some readings down to -10 (-23.3C), such as the Laramie Valley and other sheltered valleys with a decent snowpack by early Monday morning.

    UK is facing the coldest and harshest winter for almost a decade with heavy, early snowfall threatening to blanket the nation by Christmas – shock long-range weather forecasts suggest.

    Temperatures have been FALLING for 8,000 years

    Short term variations, local record hots and colds, don’t mean much, that’s just weather. What matters is long term global trend lines over decades, centuries, millennia, eons, epochs. This is Climate.

    The only ‘normal’ in climate is constant change

    Some places are always hotter than average, some places are all cooler than average, on any particular day (I don’t use ‘normal’ because the only ‘normal’ in climate is constant change).

    Average global temps
    In the 1880s:                    56.7 F. (13.7C)
    1920s to 1980s:             57.2 F.  (14C)
    Circa 2000 to 2010:     58.1 F.  (14.5C)

    These are not ‘hot’ temps. Below 60 degrees (15.55C) most people start putting on sweaters and jackets. At 58 degrees F (14.4C) in your living room you’re probably gonna turn up the heat!

    Are we witnessing the end of the Interglacial ? If we follow the sun, maybe

    The science of astrophysics has been put to sleep years ago, to hide the Ice Age dynamics. With the Ice-Age phase shift as close as the 2050s, it has become an existentially critical issue to revive the lost science.

    Great science projects have measured the Sun and its effects on the Earth. Scientific measurements were conducted intensively, over many years, with amazing results. And the results all tell us the same story, that the Sun is getting progressively weaker and the climate on Earth is getting colder and dryer.

    But who heeds the voice of science? For numerous reasons, society has been put to sleep with politically motivated fairy tales. It has been taught to close its eyes while it stands at the edge of a precipice. Cosmic science isn’t hard to understand when it is sufficiently presented.

    Solar and Galactic changes are intensifying as we are heading to Grand Solar Minimum followed by Long Ice Age Glaciation:

    We are running out of time to build or invest in new, safer, stronger infrastructure capable to withstand risks caused by Solar and Galactic changes such flood, cyclones (hurricanes, typhoons, medicane, … ), ice sheet advancing and retreating, quakes, tsunami, volcanic eruption, fires, terrorist activities, wars, …

    For outer space threats, we will need to build interstellar capable defense system.

    We are nowhere today to defense our planet against such threats.

    Some of us may still be alive to suffer the end of the modern Interglacial

    The sun will spent the next 7.7 billion years getting bigger, hotter, cooler, changing color, and eventually transforming into a white dwarf. All it will do best is to destroy the Earth.

    The biggest threat for mankind in a few billion years, is the hotbed Earth, a necessity to build or invest in a system capable for us to leave this planet: http://hydroloop.org/solution
