    A late-November freeze is predicted for Ireland and the UK, and snow is also likely on the way in the coming weeks for the region. According to weather experts, this winter could be one of the coldest on record for Ireland. Snow showers will “engulf” Ireland and the UK in late November, according to a forecast chart on the Express. Piers Corbyn, forecaster for WeatherAction, said: “Apart from some cold snaps, the first half of November is looking relatively average for the time of year with some milder periods. However, during the second half of the month there is a...

    It appears the summer hiking season may be over for another year, as many Swiss alpine resorts saw fresh snow over the weekend. A cold front saw temperatures fall last week and over the weekend, with many places in the lowlands experiencing ground frost. With the snow level dropping to 1,500m and heavy precipitation in many parts, on Monday many alpine resorts woke up to fresh snow on the ground. “Winter is coming, how to resist?” tweeted Verbier, its webcam pictures looking distinctly wintry. Laax, St. Moritz, the Jungfrau region and Crans-Montana were among the other resorts whose webcams showed...

    After weeks of scorching hot weather, Switzerland was plunged back into winter on Friday morning as heavy rain translated into snow flurries above 1,900m. A cold front passed across Switzerland on Wednesday and Thursday bringing heavy rain, especially to western, southern and eastern parts of the country. More rain was expected on Friday, turning to snow above 1,900-2,200 meters, according to MeteoSuisse. …

    Recorded temperatures at the Bureau­ of Meteorology’s Thredbo Top automatic weather station have dropped below -10C in the past week, after action was taken to make the facility “fit for ­purpose”. A record of the Thredbo Top station for 3am on Wednesday shows a temperature reading of -10.6C. This compares with the BoM’s monthly highlights for June and July, both showing a low of -9.6C. The BoM said it had taken immed­iate action to replace the Thredbo station after concerns were raised that very low temperatures were not making it onto the official record. Controversy has dogged the bureau’s automatic...

    The official start to fall is still seven weeks away, but as of late it feels like it has arrived early. Temperatures for the most part have been in the lower 80s across Mid-Missouri, following a brutal heat wave that impacted Mid-Missouri in July. The cool weather has been welcoming and there are signs that we'll see even cooler weather track into the region.p Thanks to a series of rare cold fronts this summer, temperatures have struggled to climb back to average in Mid-Missouri. That changes as we head into Wednesday, as temperatures will moderate back towards seasonable averages. Average...

AveryAside from protests by Al Gore, Leonardo Di Caprio and friends, the public didn’t seem to raise its CO2 anguish much above the Russians-election frenzy when Trump exited the Paris Climate Accords.Statistician Bjorn Lomborg had already pointed out that the Paris CO2 emission promises would cost $100 trillion dollars that no one has, and make only a 0.05 degree difference in Earth’s 2100 AD temperature. Others say perhaps a 0.2 degree C (0.3 degrees F) difference, and even that would hold only...

    RUSH: This from the U.K. Independent. “World Has Three Years to Prevent Dangerous Climate Change, Warn Experts — Since the 1880s, the world’s temperature has risen by about 1C because of greenhouse gases resulting from human activity.” Do you know what happened off the coast of North Carolina this week? Well, I don’t know if it actually happened this week. It was discovered this week. You know what happened? A new island. A new sandbar just popped up out of nowhere. It’s next to a known island, but out of nowhere they noticed there’s a brand-new — and it’s not...

    The sun is heading into a period known as solar minimum, during which activity at the surface will ‘change form.’In this time, certain types of activity, such as sunspots and solar flares will drop – but, it’s also expected to bring the development of long-lived phenomena including coronal holes. According to NASA, solar minimum could also enhance the effects of space weather, potentially disrupting communications and navigation systems, and even causing space junk to ‘hang around.’

    Al Gore thinks the weather has been out of the Book of Revelation, while Time and ABC News have reported that Antarctica is melting very quickly. Now, itÂ’s not (via NASA):The melt rate of West Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier is an important concern, because this glacier alone is currently responsible for about 1 percent of global sea level rise. A new NASA study finds that Thwaites' ice loss will continue, but not quite as rapidly as previous studies have estimated.The new study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, finds that numerical models used in previous studies have overestimated how rapidly...

    A strong rain fell overnight in downtown Los Angeles. It also fell in the Grapevine, which winds through the San Gabriel and Tehachapi mountains, where temperatures flirted with freezing and conditions were slick along Interstate 5. However, the freeway remained open and there were no major accidents. Meanwhile, several inches of snow fell in the San Bernardino Mountain area of Lake Arrowhead. Caltrans was requiring chains for drivers on State Route 18 from Heaps Peak Dump to Big Bear Dam.
  • We are STILL in an ICE AGE!

    04/29/2017 11:12:05 AM PDT · by GraceG · 63 replies
    The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation or the current ice age, is a series of glacial events separated by interglacial events during the Quaternary period from 2.58 Ma (million years ago) to present. In popular culture, there is often reference to "the next ice age".[24] Technically, because Earth is already in an ice age at present, this usually refers to the next glacial period (because the Earth is currently in an interglacial period).

    As only CBS4 told you last night, Denver would see a beautiful start to Friday – and we were greeted to a cloudless blue sky as temperatures warmed to a high of 54 degrees. Then the weather began to change as a storm system tracking across the Four Corners region and then over New Mexico began producing a strong upslope flow along the Front Range changing rain over to snow. As a result, the Denver and Boulder areas are under a Winter Storm Warning from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Saturday for 4-12 inches of slushy snow. The higher...

    As of April 1, when it was last measured by NASA’s Airborne Snow Observatory, the snowpack in the Sierra’s Tuolumne River Basin came in at 1.2 million acre-feet, according to the latest data. To put the amount in perspective, the figure is enough to fill the 92,000-seat Rose Bowl in Pasadena almost 1,600 times. “The 2017 California snowpack is close to the largest on the record, which consists of decades’ worth of snow measurements made at ground level,” according to a NASA news release. The snowpack, which is made up of layers of snow that accumulate in the winter and...

    Easter Sunday got off to an unusually cold start across Sweden — with three weather records broken as some towns experienced their chilliest April night in decades. Southern Sweden saw unseasonably cold temperatures, with up to 10 cm of snow in northern Skĺne, Blekinge, Kronoberg, Halland and Kalmar. In Örebro, the mercury dropped to –14°C, making it the coldest April night since 1944, according to P4 Örebro. In Karlstad, Sweden’s meteorological institute SMHI said temperatures reached –9°C, meaning it was the coldest night of April since 1985. …

Studies funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation expect human-induced global warming to tail off slightly over the next few decades. A weaker sun could reduce temperatures by half a degree. There is human-induced climate change, and there are natural climate fluctuations. One important factor in the unchanging rise...
