Mount Washington second-coldest place on planet

Mount Washington Observatory staffers Monday recorded one of the world's coldest temperatures and the highest gusts since 2008: 141 mph, higher than the 140 recorded during Hurricane Sandy in 2008.

Early Monday, Mount Washington Observatory Summit observer Ryan Knapp received information from www.wx-now.com that, at -35 degrees F., the summit was the second-coldest reporting location on Earth, behind only the South Pole at -51 degrees.

Climate “Science”: Consensus or Conformity?

I started a PhD program in Environmental Engineering because I worried about climate change. It didn’t take long for me to become a skeptic.

My first paper, a study about precipitation intensity over the U.S., was rejected by reviewers because it contradicted the climate model projections. Though they could find nothing wrong with the methodology, they decided observational data must be flawed because climate models couldn’t possibly be wrong and wrote that the paper could not be published.

Cold logic on climate change policy

Change, after all, can be for the better or the worse, and at any rate it is inevitable; there has never been a lengthy period of climate stasis.

Just as there is no logical or scientific basis for thinking that climate change is new, there is no self-evident reason to assume that the climate of the past is “better” than the climate of the future.

Winter storm sweeps east as Boston reels from record snows

A new winter storm is expected to push toward the East Coast into Tuesday as Boston continues being blanketed by record-breaking snowfall.

Last week's blizzard broke two records in Boston. The National Weather Service tweeted Sunday that February 2015 was the city's snowiest month on record.

Dangerous cold follows record-setting series of storms

A weekend blizzard that brought near-whiteout conditions and lightning strikes in coastal areas is being followed by some of the coldest weather the region has seen in more than a decade.

A bone-chilling blast of cold, with lows of minus-10 degrees, was forecast in parts of the state.

Dangerously Cold Tonight, Snow Late Monday

Updated: 11:30 PM on Sunday, February 15, 2015

**Wind Chill Warning for all counties until 10 AM Monday morning**

Extreme cold will last into Monday morning. Harrisburg's high temperature of 13º ties the record coldest, high temperature that was set back in 1943. We could tie or break the record low tonight of 0º in Harrisburg. The record of 0º dates back to 1905.

New York City nears record cold, as NYPD says man found dead on Coney Island boardwalk may have frozen to death

Temperatures hovered around 4 degrees, just a bit warmer than the record low of 1-degree, set in 1888. A man found dead Monday morning on the Coney Island boardwalk likely froze to death, police sources said. The cold will settle in for the week, and several inches of snow may add to the 'fun' for Tuesday.

Record-Low Temperatures or Not, New Yorkers Are Feeling the Chill

In Grand Forks, N.D., where the average low temperature for February hovers around 2 degrees, Mike Roufs, a streets department supervisor with 42 years of snow-fighting experience, could have been forgiven for raising an eyebrow at New Yorkers who complained of the cold.

To be fair to New Yorkers, it was about to get a great deal colder in the city — nearly as frigid as Grand Forks, where the overnight low on Sunday was forecast at an even 0. The temperature in Central Park for Monday, forecast at 2 degrees, may or may not beat the date’s record low of 1 degree, set on Feb. 16, 1888. Even if it does not, the city has a wind chill of minus-20 degrees to look forward to.

Grand Rapids' cold breaks 52-year-old record, another frigid night ahead

It's wintertime in West Michigan, though this sort of cold isn't too common.

So uncommon, in fact, Sunday's cold is record-breaking. Grand Rapids' morning low temperature of minus 8 degrees broke the previous record of 7 degrees below zero previously set in 1963 and 1904, according to the weather service.

Sahara Desert Greening Due to Climate Change?

Desertification, drought, and despair—that's what global warming has in store for much of Africa. Or so we hear.

Emerging evidence is painting a very different scenario, one in which rising temperatures could benefit millions of Africans in the driest parts of the continent.

Scientists are now seeing signals that the Sahara desert and surrounding regions are greening due to increasing rainfall.

If sustained, these rains could revitalize drought-ravaged regions, reclaiming them for farming communities.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

The corporate media has laucnhed a blitz of claims that 2014 was the hottest year on record, despite the record cold and snow this winter. The claim that 2014 is the hottest year on record was put forward by a Japanese global warming researcher and supported by both NASA and NOAA, which work for the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons.

However, NASA is already hedging their bets by admitting that the statistical methods used to arrive at this claim have a very wide margin of error, so much so that it is only a 38% chance the claim is accurate.

Meanwhile, the satellite launched to measure Earth's temperature does not confirm this claim. In fact, 2014 came in at sixth place in the time since since the satellite was launched!

Bitter Arctic blast could bring record cold

A bitter Artic blast that blanketed Western Pennsylvania with several inches of snow already this weekend likely will set a new weather record today, which could see wind chills as low as 30 below in some places.

The high is expected to reach 3 — beating the record of 8 set in 1943.

“We'll definitely break the low high record,” said meteorologist John Darnley with the National Weather Service in Moon.

The low overnight is expected to reach minus 7.

Extreme cold expected to continue Sunday, throughout week in Ann Arbor

If you can avoid heading outside today, you might want to. The Ann Arbor area has continued its descent into extreme cold on Sunday.

It's currently about minus 9 degrees Fahrenheit, and temperatures for the day are expected to rise only as high as 0 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

In addition, a north northwest wind 6 to 9 mph is expected, with a wind chill value as low as -27, and the area is under a wind chill warning until noon Feb. 15.

Four huge blasts of snow in one month for New England

Snow and dangerously high winds roared across parts of New England in the dark of night to face an army of road crews and emergency workers Sunday, who had readied themselves for the fourth winter onslaught in less than a month. The odds favored the ominous weather.

More than 6 feet of snow already stood in some areas from previous storms; a blizzard warning was in effect for coastal communities from Connecticut to Maine into Monday; and a bone-chilling blast of cold, with lows of minus 10 degrees was in the Sunday night forecast in parts of the region.

Boston Now At Third Snowiest Winter On Record

The heaviest snow bands continue to move south rotating around the storm which is out at sea. Temperatures will remain in the teens this afternoon, which while cold, won't be as cold as later this evening. Try to clean up the snow as soon as it stops before temperatures fall later in the day. Notice the green areas on the radar moving south of Boston. That is where it's snowing at 2 to 4 inches per hour as of this update.

Feb 15 09:38

Northeast battered by relentless winds after record snow

The U.S. Northeast struggled to dig out on Sunday from another major winter storm that made February the snowiest month in Boston's history, but bitter sub zero cold and huge drifts hampered the effort.

Truth first casualty of climate wars

Why is it that when politicians make basic science mistakes in support of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming, no government agency or university representative corrects them?

It is not as if such errors are rare; they happen all the time.

For example, climate modellers correctly label their speculations of future temperatures as “projections”, meaning that they have no validated forecast skill.

Yet lawmakers treat the models as providing forecasts or predictions.

Because this misusage is never corrected, our leaders get away with basing expensive public policy on misinformation.

Dangerously cold temperatures move into Detroit

Potentially record-setting cold is descending through lower Michigan Saturday afternoon, with actual temperatures that could reach 10 below zero overnight and wind chills that could reach 40 below.

The National Weather Service has also issued winter storm warnings in West Michigan and advisories for the central Lower Peninsula. Slick roads caused numerous vehicle spinouts late Friday and early Saturday on roadways in the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas.

The dangerous cold has canceled Saturday’s planned polar plunge in the Detroit River and had already prompted the cancellation of other activities.

Bitter cold heads east as Boston braces for blizzard

Merciless cold and savage winds will bring more winter misery to tens of millions of people across the eastern half of the USA this weekend as New England braces for yet another powerful blizzard.

"Much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast could see highs only in the single digits and teens, with overnight lows well below zero," according to WeatherBug meteorologist Seth Carrier. Wind chills will be dangerously cold, at 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

About 72 million people will endure below-zero temperatures within the next five days, WeatherBell meteorologist Ryan Maue said. By Sunday, record low temperatures are possible up and down the eastern seaboard.

Feb 13 10:02

Near-record cold tomorrow morning

Tomorrow morning's record low temperature for Flint is -7°, set back in 1970... And we could either tie or break that record.

Saginaw's record low for tomorrow morning will be a lot tougher to beat, however, at -15° set back in 1899.

I think both Flint and Saginaw will bottom out around -7°, but wind chills will be in the teens to near 20 below zero.

Possibly record-setting cold with two shots of snow in weather forecast

Twenty years have passed and that miserable winter, where snow starting falling Christmas night and didn't stop until April, remains one for the record books.

But 2015 could set some records of its own, a meteorologist from WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said Friday morning.

"I think it might be 20-year-type of cold" that descended overnight on the Lehigh Valley and northwest New Jersey, Rob Reale said. "Particularly Sunday night into Monday morning. We're not talking all-time record cold -- (but) from a mid-February-type record, it might be record cold."

There is a chance that overnight low hits "minus-5 around here; possibly minus-8," Reale said.

The all-time low for Feb. 15 at Lehigh Valley International Airport is minus-8, while the record low for Feb. 16 is minus-7, both set in 1943, Reale said, citing National Weather Service figures.

Arctic air strikes New York City, could produce record-cold temperatures this weekend as mercury expected to drop near zero mark

Temperatures were in the high single-digits before dawn on Friday and were not expected to rise above the mid-teens all day. But the worst of it will come this weekend, particularly on Sunday night, as forecasts predict the mercury could reach the zero mark and feel as cold as 20 degrees below zero with the wind chill. Sunday could be 'the coldest day in at least 20 years,' Mayor de Blasio said Thursday.

Claim: Global Warming Is Causing Less And More Snowfall

In 2001, global warming meant fewer major snowstorms with some scientists even predicting the end of snow, but in 2015 global warming means more major snowstorms.

Some scientists are now saying global temperature rises will lead to more massive snowstorms like the one that covered Boston in several feet of snow this week — a complete turnaround from what climate scientists were saying just a few years ago.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

BEX ALERT - Cold Air Invasion Coming: What’s the Role of Warming?

The non-stop sucker punches of frigid air also brought to the forefront the idea that global warming could paradoxically be behind them, with Arctic sea ice melt forcing wild dives in the jet stream up in the atmosphere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to quit trying to promote the Orwellian logic of "Global warming creates snow and ice" and remember that ten years ago the "Carbonazis" were saying the exact opposite; that global warming meant "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past" (UK Guardian, March 20,2000).

If global warming is melting the arctic, then how can the air coming down from the north be BELOW FREEZING?

Think, people. It makes the government very nervous when you do!

Another days long snowstorm threatens to clobber New England

Winter-weary New England braced Sunday for another round of snow that threatened to bear down on the region into the workweek and pile up to 2 feet in some areas.

As light snow began falling by the afternoon, drivers were warned to stay off the roads and cancellations were posted for schools and court dockets Monday.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for central New York, the western Catskills and much of New England through early Tuesday.

"I'm frustrated. The last thing I want to be talking about is another 24 inches of snow. I want to move on to something else," Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said at City Hall. "It's unprecedented ... Maybe up in Alaska or Buffalo, they have this amount of snow and they're used to it."

After record cold this morning, temperature during the afternoon will only warm to the upper teens and lower 20s. A band of snow showers and flurries was working across CT and exiting as of early afternoon - expect only partial clearing over the coming hours.

Regarding the long duration storm: anticipate areas of light snow to develop Saturday afternoon as a weak disturbances passes through; then, periods of snow will be likely on Sunday (2-4" possible by the end of the day). Snow will ramp up, intensify Sunday night into Monday... tapering off/ending by Tuesday morning. Total storm snowfall will be on the order of 6-12 inches, with locally higher amounts in northern and northwest CT.

Global warming? Only the data is heated

Skeptics of man-made catastrophic climate change of the kind pimped by Al Gore have been ridiculed, scoffed at and dismissed sneeringly as “deniers.”

For years, anyone in public life who expressed doubts about the apocalyptic claims of governments, the scientific establishment and the lemming-like popular culture was treated like a card-carrying member of the Flat-Earth Society.

Worse yet, dissident scientists were categorically denied the ability to publish in scientific journals, let alone get government grants for research.

Yet the doubts have persisted – driving one noble blogger to do something others had failed to do: Check the original official temperature records and compare them with what was actually recorded by the science establishment issuing the dire warnings of doom and gloom unless coercive, top-down action was taken to reduce carbon emissions worldwide.

The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.

In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.

Russian expert says no global warming over past fourteen years

There is been no global warming over the past fourteen years but scientists are divided in their assessments of the impact of human activity on the condition of climate, Dr. Robert Nigmatulin, the director of the Institute of Oceanic Studies reporting to the Russian Academy of Sciences said on Thursday.

"Manmade concentration of carbon dioxide is really growing," he said adding that this gas did contribute to the greenhouse effect, although it was increasing the atmospheric temperatures but insignificantly.

Nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents are there on the floor of the world's oceans. And if that is not known, then it is impossible to say if or how much human activity is warming the oceans, one of the main dogmas of the human-caused global warming religion!

Noting that weather stations there were thin on the ground, he decided to focus on three rural stations covering a huge area of Paraguay. Giss showed it as having recorded, between 1950 and 2014, a particularly steep temperature rise of more than 1.5C: twice the accepted global increase for the whole of the 20th century.

New England pummeled by Juno as storm dumps two feet of snow and causes flooding in Massachusetts, but New York City is spared

Millions of people in New York City hunkered down on Monday evening as they prepared for a potentially 'historic' blizzard.

However, the predicted storm failed to live up to its hype - prompting many to criticize Mayor Bill de Blasio for his 'over-reaction'.

Indeed, de Blasio had earlier banned cars in the city, closed a 60-mile stretch of the New York Thruway and halted buses, subways and trains.

But elsewhere along the East Coast, it was a different story - with heavy snow, high winds and coastal floods recorded across New England on Tuesday.

Winter Storm Juno heaped more than a foot of snow on parts of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and New York state.

The worst hit area was Massachusetts, which endured up to a huge 26.2 inches of snow in the town of Shrewsbury, with wind gusts topping 75mph.

The blizzard had originally been predicted to bring between 2 and 3 feet of snow to an area stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Maine, along with hurricane-force winds. However, by early Tuesday, most forecasters said that only New England would bear the brunt of the storm, and even then the snowfall would not be as bad as expected.

MOTHER JONES CLIMATE BEX - Attention GOP Presidential Candidates: Winter Does Not Disprove Global Warming

Pathetic carbonazi propaganda redacted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back on March 20, 2000, the Carbonazis were proclaiming that "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past." (UK Independent banner headline).

The fact is that human influence in climate is miniscule compared to solar output, which is at a 100-year low. But everyone who signed onto the hoax of human-caused global warming is trying to salvage their reputations in the face of a new Maunder Minimum and with it, a new "Little Ice age."

The long term trend for the last 18 years has been ever more severe winters. All the "adjusted" data from temperature sensors located in air conditioning outflows and next to trash incinerators cannot offset what the people can experience with their own eyes and skin.

It is time for Mother Jones to admit that they, like so many other corporate media outlets, were victims of a hoax, and stop trying to raise on a busted flush, while they still have some credibility left!

This Week’s East Coast Blizzard Could Be the Biggest on Record

The National Weather Service (NWS) in New York City is calling the potential for epic snowfall “historic,” while the Boston office says the incoming storm is a “textbook case for a major winter storm/blizzard.” Three-day snow totals could reach 24–36 inches in each city—good enough to rival the biggest Northeast snowstorms on record.

'Extreme' blizzard bears down on US east coast with record snowfall possible

Light snow flurries began to swirl early on Monday morning ahead of what the New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, has warned could be a “potentially historic” snowstorm.

The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings along the US east coast from central New Jersey to the Canadian border, effective through Tuesday. The storm is expected to strike just before the evening commute on Monday and intensify overnight. New Yorkers are being told to brace for powerful winds that could topple power lines and tree limbs, and extremely low visibility. The blizzard could dump two to three feet of snow from northern New Jersey to Connecticut

Will Winter Storm Juno Be a Historic Blizzard?

Millions in the Northeast are stocking up and hunkering down for Winter Storm Juno, a potentially crippling blizzard. But before Juno's parent low pressure system even reached the Atlantic coast, many began wondering aloud: Will Winter Storm Juno be historic?

"Historic" is not a precisely defined term, but generally meteorologists reserve it for weather events of exceptional strength or magnitude. A hallmark of such events is their ability to break all-time records. For instance, Winter Storm Nemo broke the all-time 24-hour snowfall record for the entire state of Connecticut when it dumped 36 inches of snow near Ansonia on Feb. 8-9, 2013.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming

Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “Massive tampering with temperatures in South America”. The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.

Pseudoscience in the service of policy

Short version–some people who were (mostly) not scientists and certainly don’t know how to do research properly conducted a series of studies that had foregone conclusions supporting their position on climate policy. For Prall, Cook and Lewandowsky the foregone nature of the conclusions was explicit–they wrote on various websites that they were conducting the studies with a predetermined end. For Oreskes it was implicit, but easy to see, as she structured her research carefully, not to show the breadth of opinion on climate change, but rather to conceal it.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

Raising on a busted flush - NOAA, NASA say 2014 warmest year on record

For the third time in a decade, the globe sizzled to the hottest year on record, federal scientists announced Friday.

Both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA calculated that in 2014 the world had its hottest year in 135 years of record-keeping. Earlier, the Japanese weather agency and an independent group out of University of California Berkeley also measured 2014 as the hottest on record.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons and that unemployment is only 6% (with more than 90 million Americans unable to find work) comes this latest exhortation to ignore the record cold and snow sweeping the globe and believe as you are told to believe that the world is warming and it is all your fault, and you will atone by paying carbon taxes !

But...

NASA has already backed off this claim, saying that the analysis of the temperature data has a margin of error so large that there is only a 38% chance the claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record is true!

The Remote Sensing System satellite data doesn't support the claim that 2014 is the hottest year on record. It came in at sixth place since the satellite was launched.

Chinese scientists doing very finely detailed measures of isotopes trapped in giant clam shells have reconstructed a detailed record of Earth's climate that confirms that the Roman and Medieval warm periods were indeed far warmer than Earth is today, and oddly enough, were also periods of lower CO2 content in the atmosphere. Contrary to the carbonazis' claims of impending doom if the Earth gets warmer, the Roman and Medieval warm periods were times of immense fertility and productivity, allowing humans freed from the scramble to find food to create the flowering of the Roman civilization, with its art and engineering, then later the Renaissance.

But the various agencies and scientists who are funded to "prove" global warming don't want to give the money back, and so even as record cold arrives, and the March 20, 2000 UK Guardian prediction that "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past" is once again proven false, they will go on screaming global warming, the sun has nothing to do with climate, global warming creates snowstorms, and all the other lies used to trick you out of your money by a desperately broke government.

Forget That Warm Weather Talk: U.S. Is About to Get Cold

The prospects of a January thaw are dropping right off the map. Even the chances that the U.S. East Coast will hold on to some above-normal temperatures into the last week of the month are fading like cheap paint in the bright sun.

Instead of displaying the gold and orange of milder weather, the maps have turned blue across the Midwest, which may be the same color your lips will be when the temperature drops. For the East, the outlook is for seasonal readings, and given that it’s January, you can color those cold, too.

“The big story this week is that our expected January thaw next week has been obliterated, and that the models keep getting colder and colder in general, starting next week through the end of January,” said Todd Crawford, a meteorologist with WSI in Andover, Massachusetts.

As Lake Michigan's scenic ice expands, danger grows for curious onlookers

Subfreezing temperatures are making their mark on West Michigan's shore, encasing once-sandy beaches and picturesque piers under sheets of ice. Perhaps it's even more attractive this time of year. But it's still treacherous, authorities say.

Lake Michigan's basin is 18.96 percent ice covered through Sunday, Jan. 11, according to data provided by the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids. It's about on pace with a 20 percent average for this time of year, though still under the 22.46 percent covered at this point a year ago.

Now also is about the time when curiosity gets the best of onlookers.

"The icebergs definitely are forming now," said Sgt. Cal Keuning with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Marine Unit, "but please enjoy them from the beach and don't venture out there."
