    July 2018 : Extreme Weather

    Published 12th August 2018

    Maybe we need reminding that all this stuff happened before everyone had a camera to capture it. Anthropogenic climate change is creating more weather extremes, but ubiquitous camera ownership makes it look much, much more dramatic.

    As for something external and sinister going on, driving volcanoes, earthquakes, bolides, famine, etc. well let's see the evidence for a real up-tick in these events too, and not just an apparent increase becasue it's now frequently recorded and shown on the internet.

    Yes agree. All this collected footage from around the world might be, for all we know, localized once-in-a-lifetime events for those who shot them. I remember it snowing in July (circa 1983), but the video cameras of the day didn't quite fit in the pocket.

    Though I don't deny that something is definitely awry with global weather just at this moment, 'anomalies' are not uniquely modern. I still believe that had camera phones always been available, you'd still manage to compile a monthly montage of incredible footage from across the globe reaching back throughout time. The floods of 1968 devastated my area for example, and were definitely a once in-a-lifetime event. If they happened today, I'm sure they'd make the cut.

    The smoke here in Calgary hits a new high today for smoke! Its actually dark this morning ... well should I say a yellow peachy hue? It seems like a heavy overcast day in terms of lightness but its all smoke - the forecast called for no cloud whatsoever today. I cannot even see the hospital that is only maybe 1.5 kms away. (At least twice as thick as in the previous photo I posted)

    "Air quality advisory" was at 10+ (out of 10) this morning - dropped to 8 currently, and actually the entire province of Alberta, the size of Texas, is under an advisory warning. Most of the smoke seems to be from BC wildfires, which is again this year burning up like crazy.

    An interesting note! This a.m. I was watching an old PBS documentary on the Lewis & Clark Expedition. At some point before they scaled the continental divide, they were hit by a hailstorm with hail so huge(7 in. in diameter) that it actually knocked some of them down & "bloodied" the heads of others!

    Hmmmmm.....Global Warming back then?!!

    Central European drought reveals ancient 'hunger stones' in Elbe River

    The low level of water caused by the recent drought has exposed some stones at the river bed whose appearances in history meant for people to get ready for troubles. They are known as the "hunger stones" and they were chosen in the past to record low water levels.

    Due to this summer's drought in Central Europe, boulders known as "hunger stones" are reappearing in the Elbe River.

    The low water levels in the river that begins in the Czech Republic then crosses Germany into the North Sea has exposed stones on the river bed whose appearances in history used to warn people that hard times were coming.

    Over a dozen of the hunger stones, chosen to record low water levels, can now be seen in and near the northern Czech town of Decin near the German border.

    The oldest water mark visible dates to 1616. That stone, is considered the oldest hydrological landmark in Central Europe, bears a chiseled inscription in German that says:


    "When you see me, cry."

    What? It's BS that it is HAARP, or that people are daft enough to think it is HAARP. Or do you believe it is HAARP that's just making pretty clouds over central southern England for an hour or so from 4,000 miles away?

    Global cooling: Snow falls on Scotland as Brits shiver in freezing -2C start to Bank Holiday

    Nicholas Bieber Daily Express
    Sat, 25 Aug 2018 19:41 UTC


    Snow shown as pink areas

    Brits woke up to a bone-chilling start to the Bank Holiday this morning - with even snow falling on some parts.

    Fresh flurries of the white stuff were recorded in the Scottish mountains in the early hours of this morning as temperatures plummeted.

    The snowfall was the first of the summer - coming just days after Brits sizzled in the high 20s and weeks after a relentless 35C heatwave.

    Temperatures nosedived to single figures across the UK overnight as freezing Arctic air swept in from Iceland.

    The bitterly cold air saw rain fall as snow in some parts of northern Scotland at around 5am, including the Cairngorms National Park near Inverness where -2C was felt.

    Weather maps by NetWeather also showed the white stuff falling over mountains to the west of Inverness in central Scotland.

    Elsewhere, the teeth-chattering cold air saw temperatures drop across England and Wales to around 6C, according to the Met Office.

    London "felt like" 5C, say NetWeather, while Brighton shivered in 3C, Cardiff 4C and Edinburgh 2C.

    Although temperatures are set to rise into the mid-to-late teens this afternoon, the cold air will strike again tonight.

    Single figure temperatures will return to deliver another chiller in another "dramatic dip" and it won't be until next week when the Arctic air disappears.

    Meteorologist Becky Mitchell told Express.co.uk:
    "We are going to see quite a dramatic dip in temperatures."

    "It will become chilly on Saturday night and we expect grass frosts and air frosts across the countryside in parts of the UK, we could see the first air frost since before summer.

    "Overnight temperatures could dip to freezing on Saturday night and it will be a chilly start on Sunday for many."

    Climate phenomenon from the northeast: a cyclist’s helmet melted and warped on a morning bike ride between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. It was cool in the fog but in the sun it felt like his skin was burning.

    Ultraviolet C ?
    I’m new to MrMBB333 channel. From what I gather folks from around the US (and world) just finished their second season of recording UV sunlight stats. UVC should be “0” at ground level. In the vid below new record was broken in the Netherlands = 9+.

    MrMBB uploads this format every now and again and has a lot of realtime Space Weather links @ MrMBB333.com
    What is UVC light?

    Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.

    What is C in ultraviolet?

    Although ultraviolet C is the most dangerous type of ultraviolet light in terms of its potential to harm life on earth, it cannot penetrate earth's protective ozone layer. Therefore, it poses no threat to human, animal or plant life on earth.

    Thanks for putting up the video of the melted helmet & the burned leaves, Running Dear! Have you noticed anything odd with the leaves in your own area?

    Usually by this time up here, the leaves are turning color; but not much yet. I'll have to start looking at leaves & not just trees in general!

    The melted helmet was amazing. I haven’t noticed the burnt spots because most of the trees around me are evergreens. It’s been too hot to walk, but on the days where it’s doable, the sun feels hotter this summer and it’s brighter even with sunglasses. I’ve been wearing long sleeve, cotton for added protection.

    I was surprised to see a few branches change color. Peak foliage here is around Columbus Day (October 8th) and extends through early November.

    Your area seems to be on schedule: 2018 NEW YORK FALL FOLIAGE PREDICTIONS:
    • September 17th - We will see partial to patchy change in Central New York and Upstate.
    • September 24th - We will see mostly partial conditions here in Central New York and Upstate.
    • October 1st - We will be near peak here in Central New York and Upstate.
    • October 8th - We will be right at peak here in Central New York and Upstate.
    • October 15th - We will be past peak here in Central New York and Upstate.
    • October 22nd - ALL of New York will be passed peak.

    We are seeing the trees and grasses here all going into Fall foliage colors. It's about 2 months too early for that. Evening temperatures have not been very low and daytime temperatures have not been that high for this month. July was way above normal temps.. Rainfall has been about normal..

    The oddity has been the atmosphere has been tinged by the particulates from the massive fires in the west and from Russia.. I assume something in the sky (a needed wavelength) has been being blocked by the particulates, so that the foliage thinks it is later in the year than it is..
