It is 65 outside in NC right now. RDU airport is within .5 inch of setting an all time yearly rainfall record. And it's raining :)

I can't find the link now, but I saw that Mount Mitchell is well over 120 inches, YTD. I'm at 72.25 as of 8:00 AM this morning, and, yes, it's raining. We're at 41 degrees and falling. Solar is at 45 watts/sq meter. We'll probably get a bit of snow tonight.

....and HAPPY HUMP DAY! It's all uphill for the Sun from here.

The Weather here in the northwest has been crazy this last week. First we get high winds knocking out power for 20 hours or so. Then the next day, an EF2 Tornado hits Port Orchard, running across the road my son and granddaughter were on not five minutes earlier. The last EF2 in Washington was 1986. Yesterday I watched my sons greenhouse go airborne. In addition, Mt Baker clocked wind speeds of 117 MPH. El Nino is here again.

Thanks for the explanation for the abbreviation so no need to google it.

Strong winter storm batters Finland, causing power cuts, traffic delays -yle
An exceptionally strong winter storm has caused widespread power cuts and traffic problems across Finland.
...
The strongest-ever winds were recorded on the Bogskär islets in the western part of the Northern Baltic on Tuesday night. The average wind speed over a 10-minute period was 32.5 m/s while gust speeds reached as much as 41.6 m/s. A new wave height record of 7.9 meters was set in the Southern Sea of Bothnia, says the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).

To convert m/s to knots multiply by 2.

So 10m/s is 20 knots, roughly

1 m/s = 1.994 knots.

1 knot is roughly 1.15 mph.

So that’s close to an 80 knot max wind speed.

Polar Vortex (hate that term) may split into 3 smaller vortex.

http://fortune.com/2019/01/03/polar-vortex-could-split/

Now what happens when that becomes permant? I’m thinking we get predominant Easterlies from the equated to the pole, assuming it just disappears in the Northern hemisphere.

That makes me thingbthe East coast of the USA will become much drier. SoCal will get even drier, the desert regions East of the Rockies may get wetter.

Has anyone heard predictions?

tripole and spit fantasy

Unread postby Whitefang » Sat 05 Jan 2019, 19:01:14

Hi Newfie,

Paul B. did a video on the beast from the East and so on.....see arctic temp.to set skyrocket ......connected with the central cold pole to shift 17 degrees NL down South, central Greenland instead of all those depressions running around the top of the world like they used to do.

https://paulbeckwith.net/

Recently released by NOAA, the Arctic Report Card 2018 details profound changes underway in the Arctic from rapid temperature increases.
“What happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic.” Quote: Beckwith, 2009
Incredibly fast Arctic warming dwarfs the global average and is accelerating:
Winter temperature anomalies are highest, followed by Autumn and Spring.
Arctic Sea-Ice melt keeps Summer anomalies low;
When Sea-Ice vanishes Summer warming will skyrocket like a “bat out of hell”.




from last year, december 29th, he mentions the tripole.


Personally I think the polar vortex will be split in two, warm moist atlantic air to travel counterclockwise, depression after depression to reverse the Beaufort Gyre and push the cold from the Canadian barren down to the Golf......funneled between the Mckenzie/Rockies/Appalachians, that'll be a blast!

That is if we get to see the BOE and Heinrich, the GIS in deep, deep troubled waters. Cold from Greenland will hit African Atlas mtns, heat from the Sahara will travel up to Nova Zembla and beyond. A totally different world from the one in which we grew up.
Just a guess, an opinion. We will find out next decade, storm of our grandchildren is here already.
I am very curious how this is all turning out, I know it is a ELE disaster but I cannot wait to see what happens next :roll:

Like watching that thin white line at the horizon and to see the ships far away get squashed by such enormous, incredible power, and being mesmerized by the beauty and terror of being here, alive and well for now.
To balence the wonder and terror of life as we know it.
