HEAT Waves 2018

Not only was the 2017/2018 summer New Zealand's hottest on record, a meteorologist says a particularly tropical week in Auckland was comparable to living in Fiji.

Niwa's Ben Noll said Auckland endured climate conditions similar to Fiji or New Caledonia for a near five-day period from February 5.

That was when the dew point, a measure of both humidity and temperature, for Auckland failed to drop below 19 degrees for 115 hours.

"It was as if you were transported 5 degrees or 10 degrees north in latitude for a period of time."

Overall, it's been the country's hottest summer on record. And there are still five days to go.

Data released on Friday from climate agency Niwa shows temperatures are running 2.3 degrees Celsius above average.

Warm weather here in Northern California has been real nice -- I've been like a frog sitting in a pot of water getting ready to boil. The cold weather had returned this month and it's like nostalgia, this is what it use to be like. How delicious!

The winters are shorter and the spring/summers are longer until, the winters disappear, in my estimation of what is likely.

This article seems to hit at what we suspect is happening:
So, the world ends not with a bang but with the weather: not with a thermonuclear Armageddon, but with the slow melting of glacial ice, with the creeping scourge of drought, with top soil blowing lazily away, with trees stressed and lightning stricken, with the soft lap of flood water, with the low buzz of disease carrying mosquitos that follow; with the almost imperceptible warming of the oceans, with their swelling, with their perturbation of the air into a violent cyclogenesis and with their slowly increasing acidification.

According to the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog, the worst of the heat was parked on top of Pakistan, which saw its hottest weather for so early in the season. On March 30, the temperature in Nawabshah, in Sindh Province, hit 45.5 degrees Celsius, or 113.9 degrees Fahrenheit. This beat the old monthly record of 45 degrees Celsius, or 113 degrees Fahrenheit, which was set in March of 1991

Sydney’s sweltering April temperatures could break more records today

By Luke Cooper
6:00pm Apr 13, 2018

Sydney is enduring more scorching weather today as an unseasonable April burst of heat contues to fry New South Wales.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a high of 35 degrees with light winds and a chance of a late rain shower in the afternoon as a hot air mass slowly moves across the state.

Weatherzone meteorologist Graham Brittain told 9News.com.au that the boiling conditions are expected to reach their peak between 2pm and 3pm this afternoon and recommended people take precautions.

‘Temperatures, which are likely to cross 45° Celsius’
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has asked the people to take precautionary measures to avoid from heat and the heatwaves, which are going to be abnormal this year.

Mr. Naidu on Tuesday tweeted cautioning about the temperatures, which are likely to cross 45° Celsius in many mandals in the State during this summer. He asked the people to take steps to prevent sunstrokes.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) Director and Scientist Y.K. Reddy during a recent press conference warned that there would be normal and above normal heatwave conditions in Coastal Andhra Pradesh in the next two months. “An average of one degree Centigrade and above temperatures and heatwaves are likely to occur for more than 40 days this year,” Mr. Reddy said.

Severe winters combined with heat waves and droughts during summer in Europe. Those were the consequences as the Atlantic Ocean heat transport nearly collapsed 12,000 years ago. The same situation might occur today.

April has been about 10 F below seasonal

Unread postby jawagord » Fri 27 Apr 2018, 09:11:15

Remember folks, unseasonably COLD weather is NOT climate change, UNLESS it is climate change and then it is due to a warmer climate disrupting the jet stream/Polar vortex/AMOC causing colder weather. Thank god for climate models otherwise we would think it was just a cold spring!

Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 15:06 - Those in the northern tier of the U.S. either graciously accept winter with open arms or drag their feet the entire way. So, for those who would willingly trade in the snow for sand, it's been a rough season that has been painfully etched into our memories after the ice storm that rolled through the Great Lakes just weeks ago.

For some communities, April won't just be memorable... it will might just go down in history. How? Well there are so many fascinating statistics to swoon over that we dug up! While doing some number crunching for Detroit Metropolitan International Airport, it wasn't an eye opener that April has been about 10 F below seasonal. The normal monthly average daytime high is 59.1 F, we only got 49.7 as an average. Another stat that won't come as a surprise is the lack of warmth -- we have yet to crack 70ºF more than once this April in Detroit, Chicago and Buffalo!

"Pakistan May Have Just Set a World Heat Record"

Temperatures reported to have cracked 50.2 degrees Celsius (122.3 degrees Fahrenheit) on Monday in Nawabshah, located about 127 miles northeast of Karachi. If confirmed, that could make the measurement not just the hottest ever recorded for April in Pakistan, but the hottest ever reliably recorded for April anywhere on Earth...

Hottest April ever
Meanwhile, Nawabshah has endured the hottest April temperature ever recorded in Pakistan or the entire Asian continent, according to a French meteorologist.
“On Monday, a city in the southern part of Pakistan soared to 122.4 degrees (50.2 Celsius). This might just be the highest temperature ever reliably measured on the planet during April,” The Washington Post reported on Tuesday

Karachi heatwave: Mercury soars above 40°C as sea breeze halts

KARACHI: The sweltering heatwave in the city and elsewhere in Sindh is likely to extend its unwelcome stay by four to five days, Geo News reported, citing an official at the country's weather monitoring authority.

Mercury in Karachi touched 41°C around noon on Sunday. The heatwave is expected to peak between Monday and Wednesday, drastically pushing the temperatures even higher, Dr Ghulam Rasool, director-general at the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), said.

Interior areas in Sindh can expect temperatures reaching up to 50°C as a renewed heatwave envelopes the province, he warned.
