    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 Skåne, 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. …

    From ​the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)Sun’s impact on climate change quantified for first timeA solar flare captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory – click for much larger image For the first time, model calculations show a plausible way that fluctuations in solar activity could have a tangible impact on the climate. 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...

    The UAE was one of a number of Middle Eastern countries to bare the brunt of a freak weather phenomenon yesterday. A shock snowstorm blasted through the Arab country, usually known for its blistering heat, scorched deserts and year-round sunshine. The blizzard covered parts of the country with up to 10 centimetres of snow, according to the local Met Office. Other Gulf States also experienced rare lightning strikes, sandstorms, rough seas and high winds of up to 90km an hour.

    After a month of huge blizzards and “atmospheric river” storms, the Sierra Nevada snowpack — source of a third of California’s drinking water — is 177 percent of the historic average, the biggest in more than two decades. The last time there was this much snow on Feb. 1 in the Sierra was in 1995. Pete Wilson was California’s governor, “Seinfeld” was the top-rated show on television and Steve Young had just led the 49ers to a blowout win in Super Bowl XXIX. In a breathtaking shift for a state that had been mired in five years of punishing drought,...

    A 4-mile section of Highway 89 on either side of Emerald Bay remains closed, with some sections buried in up to 30 feet of snow, according to the California Department of Transportation. Caltrans maintenance crews are working to clear the highway, but with more storms expected this week, the highway won’t reopen until an extended period of dry weather allows workers to safely clear the area of snow and debris, according to a Caltrans news release. Motorists traveling between the south shore of Lake Tahoe and the north or west shore will have to use Highway 50 and Highway 28....

    From broken levees south of Sacramento to snowbound streets in the mountains, Northern Californians tried to mop up from this week’s storms on Friday – while bracing for another “atmospheric river” set to hit Tuesday. As the sun came out in Sacramento, the National Weather Service said the region should have four days to dry out before the next big storm system moves in. The dry weather will give swollen rivers and streams a chance to recede, and allow work crews to inspect and shore up levees strained by increased water flows. Still, the weather service said the next storm...

    The country experienced its coldest winter night on Thursday as the mercury dropped to –26°C in some places — the coldest it has been in the 2016-17 season. Thursday night was the coldest so far this winter, with temperatures in parts of Thuringia and atop Germany’s highest mountain dropping to below –26°C. The German Weather Service (DWD) reported that southern Germany between Franconian Switzerland and Upper Palatinate in Bavaria were particularly affected by below-freezing temperatures. In Schorndorf-Knöbling, the thermometers were still reading around –22.6°C by 9am on Friday morning. …

    Even the New York Times, one of the biggest sources of fake news on anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming, or AGW, occasionally gets facts straight and the story right. Or, at least, partially straight and mostly right. Such is the case with the Times’ recent stories by Jane E. Brody on December 19 and December 26 regarding the death toll risks from cold weather versus hot weather. In her December 19 column, titled, “Beware: Winter Is Coming,” Ms. Brody cited an important study from The Lancet, the British medical journal, that found “Cold kills”  as she put it — and at a...

    Environmentalists are really worried that your home's Christmas lights will ruin the planet. They worry that both the manufacturing processes of the lights and the electricity needed to power them will generate lots of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They worry that the lights are manufactured in China and thus the amount of CO2 emissions generated during their construction is effectively unknowable. [Snip] Christmas lights aren't the only pressing issue troubling the minds of environmentalists this holiday season. The left-leaning news website Huffington Post encouraged readers to consider the environmental impact of Christmas trees in an article this month comparing the...

    Extreme cold is moving across more of the country this week, bringing with it the potential for record lows and dangerous conditions for children, pets and anyone else without adequate protection — all thanks to a weather phenomenon known as the polar vortex. What is the polar vortex? This phrase is once again in the headlines, and worth re-defining. The “polar vortex” technically refers to a large area of low pressure and cold air that surrounds both of the Earth’s poles, according to the National Weather Service. It’s always existed at the poles, but the polar vortex strengthens in particular...

    Global land temperatures have plummeted by one degree Celsius since the middle of this year – the biggest and steepest fall on record. But the news has been greeted with an eerie silence by the world’s alarmist community. You’d almost imagine that when temperatures shoot up it’s catastrophic climate change which requires dramatic headlines across the mainstream media and demands for urgent action. But that when they fall even more precipitously it’s just a case of “nothing to see here”. The cause of the fall is a La Nina event following in the wake of an unusual strong El Nino.

    Overview The sun has been completely spotless on 21 days in 2016 and it is currently featuring just one lonely sunspot region. In fact, on June 4th of this year, the sun went completely spotless for the first time since 2011 and that quiet spell lasted for about four days. Sunspot regions then reappeared for the next few weeks on a sporadic basis, but that was followed by several more completely spotless days on the surface of the sun. The increasingly frequent blank sun is a sign that the next solar minimum is approaching and there will be an even...

    A new study by a prominent Russian astrophysicist claims the “new Little Ice Age” started at the end of 2015 due to low solar activity, kicking off decades of “deep cooling” in the latter half of the 21st Century. “As a result, the Earth has, and will continue to have, a negative average annual energy balance and a long-term adverse thermal condition,” Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov, who is the head of space research for the Pulkovo Observatory at the Russian Academy of Sciences, wrote in a recent study. “The quasi-centennial epoch of the new Little Ice Age has started at the...
