Cold pattern returns, with record low possible Friday

Are you ready for another record?

The upper-level trough of cold air that dropped temperatures early Thursday could produce another record low by Friday morning.

The record for March 6 is zero, set in 2007. And temperatures approaching zero are what’s in the forecast, said meteorologist Shawn Smith of the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

“I’m waiting for those high temperature records,” Smith quipped.

Crew at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport continue to recover from the 3-plus inches that fell there overnight.

Airport spokesman David Magaña says two runways are now open, and snowplows continue to work on the ramps and taxiways. The roads through the airport are still slick and slushy, however.

And there were hundreds of canceled flights, including almost 400 departures. Many more flights were delayed, and there were many travelers stranded at the airport overnight.

Boston Gets More Snow, Inches Closer To Record

Talk about gluttons for punishment: Bostonians buried beneath more than 8 feet of snow suddenly are clamoring for a little more so they can boast of a new record.

The 1.6 inches of snow that fell late Tuesday into Wednesday puts the city just a smidgeon over 2 inches away from setting an all-time snowfall mark. So far this winter, it’s gotten 105.5 inches, according to National Weather Service measurements taken at Logan International Airport.

The record is 107.6 inches recorded during the 1995-96 season. Records date to 1872.

Boston Mayor's Space-Saving Ban Seeks to End War Over Shoveled Parking Spots

With more than 8 feet of snow accumulating across Boston since January, clogged city streets have made available parking spaces a hot commodity.

Those that have spent the time and energy shoveling a clean spot deserve to park in it, locals have argued.

Walsh's decision was a controversial one, stirring mixed emotions in the community and across social networks.

On Craigslist, one Bostonian bragged about his ultimate retaliation: putting the shoveled snow back in the spot, surrounding and burying the car that pilfered his space.

"I was nice enough to leave the passenger door accessible in case they needed to get in for an emergency," the anonymous Bostonian wrote.

As the war wages on between locals, Walsh asks that residents respect one another and be fair.

NASA Admits That Winters are Going to Get Colder…Much Colder

Climatologist John Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, thinks that last year’s winter, described by USA Today as “one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record” is going to be a regular occurrence over the coming decades.

Casey asserts that there is mounting evidence that the Earth is getting cooler due to a decline in solar activity. He warns in his latest book, Dark Winter that a major alteration of global climate has already started and that at a minimum it is likely to last 30 years.

Nova Scotia aquaculture fish killed by superchilled water

Fish at three aquaculture sites in Nova Scotia have died and a so-called superchill is suspected, the provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture said Tuesday.

Cooke Aquaculture's sites in the Annapolis Basin, Shelburne Harbour and Jordan Bay are reporting mortalities, officials said.

A fish health veterinarian visited the Annapolis Basin and Shelburne Harbour sites and is expected to visit the Jordan Bay site in the next few days to investigate the cause of death, Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell said in a statement.

"Our provincial fish health veterinarians investigate mortality events to rule out diseases of concern," he said.

The department said a preliminary investigation has found a superchill happened, meaning sustained cold temperatures dropped the temperature of the water to the level that fish blood freezes — around –0.7 C.

Great Lakes ice cover over 88%, more than last year

How rough a winter has it been on the Great Lakes? Ask the crew of the freighter Arthur M. Anderson — whenever they make it back to port.

The 767-foot bulk carrier, due in port a week ago, was only just west of St. Ignace in northern Lake Michigan as of Monday afternoon, making its way to its winter layover port in Sturgeon Bay, Wis. The Anderson — famously the last ship to receive communication from the freighter Edmund Fitzgerald before it sank during an intense storm on Lake Superior in November 1975, killing all 29 crew members — was stuck in ice west of the Mackinac Bridge all day Sunday. A U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker had to free it, the reported.

The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore ice caves are located several miles outside of Bayfield, Wis., on a 12-mile stretch along the coast. In order to see the caves, Lake Superior has to freeze enough for spectators to walk over ice to the caves.

The ice was thick enough for the caves to open on Saturday, attracting nearly 12,000 people over the weekend, according to Julie Van Stappen, Chief of Planning & Resource Management at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

Park officials had checked ice conditions Wednesday to make sure the ice was almost a foot thick to handle the foot traffic.

'March'ing into another month of cold? Brace yourselves.

It's probably unlikely, but March will get a running start this week.

That's because the average forecast temperature between today and Saturday is 22.2 degrees.

The biggest group, and the generals in this war on carbon, have no real interest in the facts or science of global climate change – they see climate alarmism as a great opportunity to achieve their goal of creating an unelected global government. They have even laid out their plans in a document called Agenda 21.

This group naturally includes the United Nations and all of its subsidiaries, the EU, and left wing politicians and media everywhere. At a news conference in Brussels recently, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but “to change the economic development model” i.e. destroy what is left of free enterprise and private property.

More Bad News for Alarmists: Polar Bears Doing Just Fine

…Bad news, that is, for all those environmentalists from David Attenborough downwards who have spent the last few years assiduously bigging up the polar bear as a “threatened species.”

As I’ve argued before, any species which has experienced a five-fold increase in its population in the last fifty years (in the 60s there were about 5,000 of them; now there are around 25,000), sounds less like a rare and endangered creature and more like a verminous, out-of-control menace in sore need of culling.

And here we are, with centuries-old cold records falling like flies on the doorstep to March, and still they are pushing the global warming agenda.

For the past 5 days, solar activity has been very low and one measure of solar activity – its X-ray output – has basically flatlined in recent days (plot below courtesy NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center). Not since cycle 14 peaked in February 1906 has there been a solar cycle with fewer sunspots.

"We estimate faster than at any time in the last 9300 years."

Record Cold And Snow Destroy Global Warming Claims

Yet another bitterly cold, snowy winter is destroying alarmist global warming claims, proving once again that over-the-top global warming predictions are proving no more scientifically credible than snake oil.

This morning, stunning photos show New England lobster boats frozen in port, looking like they are stranded deep within the Arctic Circle. The boats have been frozen in place for weeks, which would be remarkable enough if this were the middle of January. However, the calendar is about to turn to March.

Mini Ice Age 2015-2035 | 100+ Year Temperature Records Dropping Like Flies & 10.7cm Flux Down 30%

So yet again, the sun has fallen absolutely silent, and has been so for three days. This comes at the presumed height of the current solar maximum in April ’14. We can see that the F10.7cm flux – a measure of UV radiation – is down approximately 30% from 3 months ago.

NASA’s own website ( states that the F10.7 flux is “an important indicator of solar activity because it tends to follow the changes in the solar ultraviolet that influence the Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere.” Decreasing UV radiation, lower solar winds, allow for more cosmic radiation from interstellar space to interact with the upper atmosphere and leads to greater cloud formation. More clouds means more sunlight refracted before hitting the surface of the planet, which leads to more cooling effects.

Betrayed By Science, The Church of Global Warming Can Still Burn a Heretic or Two

To appreciate the psychology of the global-warming cult, one must understand a few contextual details. Most importantly, these are times of panic for the Church of Global Warming. Science has failed them. The global warming they predicted is going into its third decade of not happening. Polar ice and sea levels aren’t doing what they predicted. Much of their seminal research has been exposed as academic fraud, based on cute little games like ignoring large periods of history that don’t conform to their man-made climate change models, fudging temperature measurements, and changing the methodology for recording and estimating global temperatures at during different historical periods. Their recent attempts to scare up a few headlines favorable to the movement, such as the big media fuss about 2014 being the “hottest year in history,” have collapsed under scrutiny as exaggerations or outright falsifications.

Climate researcher questions Cyclone Marcia’s category 5 status

A CLIMATE researcher at Central Queensland University has claimed the weather bureau’s Cyclone Marcia forecasts were inaccurate and irresponsible.

Jennifer Morohasy said the bureau had used computer modelling rather than early readings from weather stations to determine that Marcia was a category 5 cyclone, not a category 3.

Views on global warming led to weather bureau staff exaggerating strength of Cyclone Marcia, claims scientist

WEATHER bureau staff are so blinded by the view that global warming will produce more intense cyclones that they exaggerated Cyclone Marcia’s size, a scientist says.

Jennifer Marohasy said the bureau had invested hundreds of millions in having researchers investigate the impacts of human-induced global warming and this had coloured its views.

“They want to have more intense cyclones. (As Marcia passed) they ignored the observational data and it’s not good enough,” she said.

Daily Record Low Smashed – February Record Low Tied

It’s yet another morning with record cold! This is the 6th day this month temperatures have fallen to record levels. We smashed the record for today which was -5 set back in 1948. It’s one of the coldest mornings in western Massachusetts recorded history. Just like Saturday morning when we tied the all-time lowest February temperature at Westover (-19), we did again this morning. We got down to -19 once again! The coldest winter morning for *any* month ever recorded at Westover is -22. By the way, on this day in 1985 we hit 71 degrees, the warmest temperature recorded in the month of February!

Here are some morning lows from across the area. Orange -21, Westover -19, Fitchburg -15, Barnes -12, North Adams -12, Bradley -8, Worcester -7, Hartford -4, Providence, -3, Boston +2.

More record cold is on the way tonight! Oh I have been just full of good news lately. Another arctic cold front moved through during the day today and with it comes frigid temperatures and brutal wind chills through tomorrow. But let’s start with tonight, the forecast calls for -2°F for the shoreline towns, this would SHATTER the 47 year old record of 12°F which was set back in 1968. Inland, even colder, the forecast calls for -10°F, some towns in the higher elevations will likely be -15°F. This would also SHATTER the 108 year old record of -4°F which was set back in 1907, which is before the Titanic sank in 1912!

FLASHBACK 2010 - UN climate change panel based claims on student dissertation and magazine article

The revelation will cause fresh embarrassment for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which had to issue a humiliating apology earlier this month over inaccurate statements about global warming.

The IPCC's remit is to provide an authoritative assessment of scientific evidence on climate change.

In its most recent report, it stated that observed reductions in mountain ice in the Andes, Alps and Africa was being caused by global warming, citing two papers as the source of the information.

However, it can be revealed that one of the sources quoted was a feature article published in a popular magazine for climbers which was based on anecdotal evidence from mountaineers about the changes they were witnessing on the mountainsides around them.

FLASHBACK 2010 - UN report that said Himalayan glaciers would melt within 25 years was all hot air

Claims by the world's leading climate scientists that most of the Himalayan glaciers will vanish within 25 years were last night exposed as nonsense.

The alarmist warning appeared two years ago in a highly influential report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

At the time the IPCC insisted that its report contained the latest and most detailed evidence yet of the risks of man-made climate change to the planet.
The Himalayas

But the experts behind the warning have now admitted their claim was not based on hard science - but a news story that appeared in the magazine New Scientist in the late 1990s.

That story was itself based on a telephone conversation with an Indian scientist who has since admitted it was little more than speculation.

Feb 24 07:35

FLASHBACK 2010 - United Nations caught out again on climate claims

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny - and ignored warnings from scientific advisers. The report's author later withdrew the claim because the evidence was too weak.

The link was central to demands at last month's Copenhagen climate summit by African nations for compensation of $US100 billion from the rich nations.

FLASHBACK 2013 - IPCC 's Bogus Evidence for Global Warming

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was set up by the United Nations in 1988 and has been trying very hard to demonstrate the threat of a dangerous human influence on climate due to the emission of greenhouse gases. This is in line with their Charter, which directs the IPCC to assemble reports in support of the Global Climate Treaty -- the 1992 Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) of Rio de Janeiro.

It is interesting that IPCC "evidence" was based on peer-reviewed publications - but (reluctantly) abandoned only after protracted critiques from outside scientists. E-mails among members of the IPCC team, revealed in the 2009 'Climategate' leak, describe their strenuous efforts to silence such critiques, often using unethical methods.

Pachauri Quits UN Climate Panel After Harassment Allegation

Rajendra Pachauri, who supervised work on the two most detailed studies of climate change ever completed, stepped down as head of the United Nations panel studying the science after allegations he sexually harassed a colleague.

The chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change wrote in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon that he would resign on Tuesday because he may be unable to provide the panel the leadership it needs.

His decision removes from the climate debate one of the most prominent and authoritative voices calling for the reining in in greenhouse gases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Authoritative?" Read his background. He is an electrical engineer who spent most of his career working for India's Railroads. He is not a scientist. He is not a climatologist. He is, like Al Gore, only peripherally knowledgeable about the subject he promotes.

More record cold this week

Our weather pattern is a record breaking machine. After several record lows last week, 5 record lows are in jeopardy this week. We are also on pace now to come very close to the all time record for the coldest and snowiest February since 1871. Not only could this February be the coldest on record, but it has the chance to be the 2nd coldest month ever on record for Toledo. So think about it, out of the 1,730 months on record, this month will either end up as the 2nd or 3rd coldest. Not even the historic winter of 2014 can compare with this February in terms of cold or snow. Currently the coldest February ever recorded was in 1978 with an average temperature of 11.8° (we will be around 11.5° to 12.0° this year if the forecast holds). The coldest month on the books for Toledo was January of 1977 with an average temperature of 9.6°.

Winter returns with snow in Las Vegas Valley

After a night of showers, some Las Vegas valley residents woke up to a cool surprise: Snow!

Parts of Summerlin were dusted with about one to two inches of snow, National Weather Service meteorologist Stan Czyzyk said.

At least one to two inches of snow was recorded in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. But Czyzyk said he wouldn’t be surprised if they received more.

Las Vegas police said three hikers were reported stranded in Red Rock Canyon near the Ice Box Canyon trail about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The search and rescue team were forced to delay the search until early Monday morning due to inclement weather. The hikers were advised to conduct a shelter in place until then.

Republicans To Investigate NASA Over Climate Data Tampering

With record heat (and drought) in the west and record cold (wet and snow) in the east, the global warming game-playing continues every day but the climate-gate rhetoric has increased vociferously since we first noted three weeks ago, the data that has been so relied upon to 'prove' global warming's trend was in fact manipulated. What The Telegraph called "the most extraordinary scandal of our times" - that of the "seasonally-adjusted" seasonal raw global temperature data - is about to be investigated by Congress. As Daily Caller reports, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrbacher exclaimed "expect there to be congressional hearings into NASA altering weather station data to falsely indicate warming & sea rise."

Bill Nye Tells MSNBC To Say Climate Change, Not Global Warming, When It’s Cold Out

Words are everything, even in the global warming debate. TV personality Bill Nye the “Science Guy” told MSNBC’s Joy Reid to use the phrase climate change, not global warming, when it’s so cold out.

“Let’s not confuse or interchange climate change with global warming,” Nye told Reid on Monday. “Global warming – The world is getting warmer. There is more carbon [dioxide] holding in more heat.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Nye's logical fallacy is that "Climate Change" can mean the climate is going either warmer or cooler. If it is going warmer and you believe the CO2 theory, then limiting CO2 makes sense. BUT ... if the world is cooling, then carbon taxes and carbon credits will make matters worse (again, if you believe the premise that CO2 dominated Earth's climate instead of that giant ball of fusing hydrogen in the sky, which BTW is entering a period of lower activity).

Is this Bill Nye's "Brian Williams/Bill O'Reilly" moment?

And let us not forget that back in 2000, all the "Climate Change" experts were declaring that snow was a thing of the past (UK Independent, March 20, 2000)

Feb 22 09:34


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.

It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.

Media Reports That GMO Science Is Settled Are Flat-Out Wrong

In the wake of prominent media reports about supposed scientific agreement on the safety of genetically engineered food, including a cover story in National Geographic that equates concerns about GMOs with climate change denial, U.S. Right to Know is calling on media to accurately report that the science on GMOs is contradictory, unsettled, and has been largely controlled by corporations that profit from GMO seeds and the pesticides that go with them.

“Unfortunately, many members of the media, and even some scientists, have been snookered by PR firms about a supposed scientific consensus on GMOs that doesn’t exist,” said Stacy Malkan, media director of U.S. Right to Know.

Record freezes in Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia

If people thought Thursday morning was frigid in Northeast Florida, prepare for record freezing temperatures Friday, said Ben Nelson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Record lows also are expected to be approached in southeastern Georgia, Nelson said.

Nelson said a record low in the Jacksonville area of 28 degrees for Feb. 20, set in 1958, is almost guaranteed to fall Friday when temperatures are expected to hit 20 degrees at Jacksonville International Airport, with mid- to upper 20s from downtown to the Beaches.

Really, really cold

The average temperature for each day this February (dark blue) compared to the 30-year "normal" average temperature for the date. The gap between the bars for each date is known as the "snot-freezing difference." (OK, that last part is made up.)

You know what's better than complaining about the weather? Complaining about the weather with numbers.

Yep, it's cold: Lake Erie has 98% ice cover

he Great Lakes ice cover continues to grow as winter weather slams the country. Lake Erie had 98% ice cover on Wednesday, according to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

Lake Erie usually gets an extensive ice coverage because of how shallow the lake is, according to George Leshkevich with the Great Lakes Coastwatch. He says Erie isn't the only lake experiencing the deep freeze.

"The Great Lakes as a whole experienced 85.4% ice cover as of (Wednesday)," Leshkevich says.

Historic Cold Not Over Yet

I did a little digging this morning and found some jaw-dropping numbers. For instance, in Boston, where the snow is literally measure in feet these days, they're within a foot of their all-time snowiest winter ever. That was the winter of 1995-96 at 107.6 inches. They're tied with the winter of 1993-1994 with 96.3 inches for second snowiest winter on record. Of the next five, only two were before 1990. As a side note, it's kind of interesting that in an era where 'snow would become a rare, exciting event,' that six of the top eight snowiest winters have occurred in the last 25 years.
