Spring snowstorms aren't over just yet

If this coming week were a parable, it would be about patience and good things coming. Instead, it seems like the next few days are from the closing pages of a Stephen King novel about snow monsters with breath that can freeze thermometers.

A series of small but unpleasant storms seems to be setting up, each carrying the possibility of snow, mixed with rain, leaving "an inch of two" of snow in its wake.

Apr 06 08:51

It's April 6th, And It's Snowing

Yes, it’s April 6. And it’s snowing.

The National Weather Service issued a weather statement early Friday warning of snow between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. It might fall heavily for an hour or two before mixing with sleet and changing over to rain.

Flurries started falling in Hartford about 10 a.m.

Accumulations will range from a coating to 2 inches. Some spots may get closer to 3 inches, the weather service said.

If it’s cold and snowing, it must be the White Sox’ home opener!

The flurries started in earnest in the third inning, transforming a baseball game into a Christmas story.

Study: flood control engineering likely has worsened floods

Flood control work in the Mississippi River and its tributaries has likely made floods worse in Mississippi and Louisiana, researchers say.

Using 500 years of data from tree rings and from sediment in oxbow lakes — bends that once were part of the Mississippi River but became lakes when the river changed its path slightly — they say the river has flooded more often and poured more water into those states over the past 150 years than any previous period.

Record-breaking, 'ridiculous' April cold and snow set to hit northeastern U.S. this weekend

An unusually cold winter storm is bound for New York City — again.

Dreams of clear skies and mild weather will have to wait, as forecasters predicted Wednesday that a record-breaking Arctic blast is headed for the East Coast this weekend.

"Ridiculous late season arctic outbreak Fri/Sat," Weather Company meteorologist Michael Palmer tweeted.

Temperatures in the city are expected to drop as much as 20 degrees below the normal and a slushy snow-rain mix will likely start falling on Friday and continue well into Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

Smartphones Are Killing The Planet Faster Than Anyone Expected

Smartphones are particularly insidious for a few reasons. With a two-year average life cycle, they’re more or less disposable. The problem is that building a new smartphone–and specifically, mining the rare materials inside them–represents 85% to 95% of the device’s total CO2 emissions for two years. That means buying one new phone takes as much energy as recharging and operating a smartphone for an entire decade.

April Will Begin With More Chances For Snow In The Northern U.S. This Week

The chances for snow over the next couple of days are no joke. April will begin with some more snow for the northern United States as winter still fights to remain relevant as the sun's warmth digs further into the northern hemisphere with each passing day. A jet stream entrenched over the northern United States will allow the beginning of April to remain cooler than normal and bring several shots at snow across northern sections of the country. None of the storms will be intense blizzards like you'd see during the winter, but even a short-lived thump of snow could snarl travel and ruin plans.

So much for spring! Unseasonable snowfall hits NYC and New Jersey, causing commuting delays, canceling more than 200 flights and even the Yankees are forced to postpone their home opener

We may be well into spring but the weather remained frozen in winter across the northeast on Monday.

The unexpected snow has caused chaos across New York where the Yankees have been forced to postpone their much-anticipated season opener after the stadium was covered in a blanket of snow.

The snowstorm has also caused hundreds of flight cancellations across its three major airports and heavy commuter traffic as up to three inches were dumped on the city in the morning.

The unseasonable snow storm also struck the northeast, bringing commuter misery to residents in Washington, Philadelphia, and much of New Jersey. New England is expecting up to five inches of snow in some non-urban areas.

Snow could ruin New York Yankee's home opener as up to six inches of snow is predicted to hit the East Coast Monday

Up to six inches of snow is predicted for areas of the East Coast which could impact the New York Yankees home opener on Monday.

Forecasters are predicting a mixture of rain and snow slush to start falling early Monday morning and into the day.

Most of the weather is anticipated prior to the first pitch, but some could still linger and impact the start time as the Yankees take on the Tampa Bay Rays.

FINALLY! Climate Propaganda May Be Reaching A Tipping Point

Has the climate propaganda reached a point where radical climatism is leading us into dangerous negligence?

The severe winter in the northern hemisphere has been widely recorded. However, key climate information providers have altered data. The result — intended or not — has been to make the recent record lows of the winter appear normal.

November 2017 marked the onset of a very cold winter across the Northern Hemisphere. Many parts of North America and Eurasia registered record lows, breaking even 80-year records.

Below-average temperatures continued well into February, breaking records in Japan and Europe. In fact, Europe is about to experience a deep freeze due to changes in local weather patterns.

Emergency Russian Gas Purchases Are Now a Huge Embarrassment for London

The spy poisoning scandal turned into a diplomatic row and now threatens to spill into energy issues, after UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that Britain was looking “to other countries” for its gas supplies.

The UK has gas supply contracts with Russia’s gas giant Gazprom, and although the British dependence on Russian gas supply is not as high as that of other European countries, the UK still relies on some Russian gas for its energy needs. The UK has also imported a liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from Russia’s newly started Yamal project, and re-exported another LNG cargo originating from Yamal.

For now, UK gas traders remain unconcerned that the UK could run short of nat gas supplies, even shrugging off Prime Minister May’s comments that the UK would be looking for other gas suppliers.

During question time in Parliament on Wednesday, May said that “I can reassure … that in looking at our gas supplies we are indeed looking to other countries.”

Extreme winter weather across the U.S. is linked to unusual warmth in the Arctic, according to a study published Tuesday.

That is especially true in the heavily populated eastern U.S., the study said, where extreme winter weather is two to four times more likely when temperatures in the Arctic are unusually warm.

The research comes out as the wild winter of 2017-18 comes to its (hopefully) merciful close with yet another nor'easter blasting the Northeast.

Heart Butte and Browning still reeling from record snowfall

Two days after Governor Steve Bullock declared a state of emergency for parts of the state due to severe winter weather, he got a tour of Browning.

Bullock flew to the Blackfeet Reservation with the Montana Army National Guard on Thursday.

He met with Blackfeet leaders to discuss what help they need, and then boarded a bus and was driven through town to see how big of a problem the snow has become.

As the bus drove down roads, some drifts rose to the tops of homes and snow banks were so tall, they blocked the view from the bus.

Bullock says seeing this situation in person really gave him an appreciation for the work everyone has been doing to help the communities hit hardest by this weather.

The Heart Butte community joined together on Thursday to help stranded families get food and supplies.

The North East braces for 'life or death' Winter Storm Riley: 'Bombogenesis' is set to batter the coast with dangerous floods, 80mph winds, heavy rain and up to three inches of SNOW

The Northeast is bracing for a 'bombogenesis' that experts say will bring violent 80mph wind, torrential downpour, snow and heavy flooding, resembling the harshness of January's 'bomb cyclone'.

Weather experts said Thursday that Winter Storm Riley will undergo 'bombogenesis', caused by a rapid drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars in a period of 24 hours or less.

The drop in atmospheric pressure will force the storm to form into an intense nor'easter into Friday.

A sudden pressure plummet on Friday is expected to hit the Atlantic coast leading into Saturday.

'Please take this storm seriously,' the National Weather Service in Boston said. 'For those living along the coast, this is a LIFE & DEATH situation.'

This incoming nor’easter will not have a quick exit, instead it will be blocked by a large area of high pressure up over Greenland. The “Greenland Block” is something that comes and goes during a winter season, but some of our biggest and most destructive storms have occurred when a strong block is in place. The situation for this storm will be just that, the block will be at its strongest thus far this season, giving the nor’easter no immediate exit, only slowly drifting away this weekend.
Combine a very slow moving storm with the highest astronomical tides of the month and you have the recipe for major coastal destruction.>>>

Coldest March day ever: Forecasters' chilling warning as scores of panicked drivers sit trapped on frozen roads and UK faces running out of GAS after record day when temperatures never rose over -5C

Storm Emma, rolling in from the Atlantic, is meeting the Beast from the East's chilly Russia air - causing further widespread snowfall and bitter temperatures after the mercury fell as low as -16C (3F) last night.

On the first day of meteorological spring today, temperatures will fall to -11C (12F) in the daytime as the Met Office said 'winter is still firmly in charge across the UK' - and London Paddington station was closed due to icy platforms.

Tomorrow meteorologists are expected to announce that today has been the coldest day in March since records began.

Science : Cold Is The New Hot

Forty years ago, scientists blamed the polar vortex, loops in the jest stream, cold, and extreme weather on global cooling. Now they blame the exact same things on global warming.

When the jet stream makes large loops in the winter, cold air moves south, and milder air moves moves towards the pole. Milder winter temperatures near the pole have nothing to do with global warming.


It is completely irrational to blame cold on heat, and to believe North Pole winters could be heated by the greenhouse effect. The sun doesn’t shine at the North Pole in winter, so there can’t be a greenhouse effect. Greenhouses require sunlight to operate.

Twenty years ago scientists said “we don’t get cold snowy winters any more because of global warming.” Now they say “cold, snowy winters are caused by global warming.” Climate science has become one massive lie, based on the need to maintain funding.

Brutal Cold Snap Hits Europe

T he Arctic storm dubbed the "Beast from the East" set record low temperatures across much of Europe on Monday and brought a rare snowstorm to Rome, paralyzing the city and giving its residents an unusual chance to ski, sled and build snowmen in its famous parks and piazzas.

Rome's train, plane and bus services were crippled and Italy's civil protection agency even mobilized the army to help clear slush-covered streets as a city used to mild winters was covered by a thick blanket of snow, AP reported.

Elsewhere, the storm set dangerously low temperatures. Meteorologists in Germany reported a record low for this winter of -27° Celsius on the Zugspitze Mountain in the Alps. Moscow, as well, recorded its coldest night this winter, with the mercury dipping to nearly -20° C on Sunday night.

Report: NOAA Caught Lying About Arctic Sea Ice

The Arctic is melting catastrophically! Sea ice levels are experiencing their most precipitous decline in 1500 years! Something must be done – and fast…
Well, so claims the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and we know by now what that means, don’t we?

Yep: the Arctic sea ice is doing just fine. Yep: yet again, the NOAA is telling porkies.

As usual, Paul Homewood has got its number.

Milton Keynes weather: Five day forecast as snow, ice and sub-zero temperatures bite

Snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures will hit Milton Keynes this week.

Forecasters at the Met Met Office are predicting the 'Beast from the East' will bring bitter winter weather.

While it will be very cold and there will be snow Milton Keynes looks like it may escape some of the worse weather.

One yellow warning is in place, with nearby towns like Northampton and Kettering being hit by an amber warning - which means up to 15cm of snow.
