It's time folks. Piacere, you should be okay through this one. Parts of New England will get hammered though.

Uh-oh for some of you.

Central pressure of storm will fall to 965 mb over Maine -- get your barometers ready ... equivalent to tropical Cat 3 hurricane pressure"
"While only 1-3" snow in Boston from upcoming powerful coastal storm, inland should see at least 1-foot of heavy, wet snow." 12.27.16

Polar Vortex coming first week of the New Year. Ohhhhhh Whippin' Post!

Here's a late Christmas present -- GFS 18z unloading the #PolarVortex on central Lower 48 -- but it's 7-8 days away ... could go poof.


gina - 12/29/2016 at 12:08 AM

Latest update, Maine gets the worst of it, and they will get it bad. Vermont, New Hampshire will get a foot or more. The storm will be off Montauk at 5 pm at 990 mb, as it heads north, at this point what they call bombogenesis will start to occur with the pressure dropping 3 millibars per hour, which is why it will be like a Cat 3 hurricane when it gets up there.

Long Island, should be rain starting by 8 AM. Winds kick up between 5 pm and 7 pm as the monster heads up north.

Yes, coming down steady, will become heaviest overnite, expecting 16" or so --
Thanks again Gina for the weather stuff -- in all seriousness the gamma ray burst thread is my favorite this year -- us weather fans/space cadets gotta stick together


gina - 1/3/2017 at 07:31 PM


Lots of weather coming this week for everyone.

Saturday morning still best chance for flurries or snow showers briefly in Atlanta. Heavier snow in Carolinas, VA.

By Sat, E US freezing beneath bone dry Arctic air (10% of normal moisture) while California goes bonkers snow/rain w/moisture > 200% normal

North east the cold is coming. Chicago will be 19 degrees by Wednesday!

Head's up North Carolina. Raleigh, snow coming for you, the storm is off Charlotte, NC right now. Richmond Virginia, snow is coming your way also.

http://www.accuweather.com/en/videos/accuweather-experts/late-week-snowstor m-morning-update/2430839568001

As for those up here, first reports say 2-4, then there are some possibles of 6", it's weather, it's complicated. I like the Navegem take on it, we don't get much.

This is a storm in the west.
https://www.wunderground.com/news/winter-storm-helena-things-to-know?__prcl t=H9jXKyyQ


I keep wanting to think these storms are a fluke, it's too early in the season for this, but as my shovel brother in Little Rhody knows, if the northeast is gonna have a bad winter, sometimes it starts like this. I sure hope it is limited to February (as predicted) or maybe we get mercy, I sure need some right about now.

With 3 hours of shoveling, I agree with the totals. It would have been nice if they let us know ahead of time that much was coming. There's a big difference between 4-6, and 10 inches. It was also supposed to start at 1 pm and last till about 7 pm, but it started at 9 am, and it came down for 12 hours not 6.

Hope everyone is safe and somewhat recovered.

Northeast a little snow tomorrow. After that snow on Superbowl Sunday could be 3-6" , then artic air after that.

Your weekly weather outlook. Next Tuesday there will be severe weather Arkansas and Southern Missouri. The northeast should get a reprieve from the predicted 3-6" of snow previously forecast for Super Bowl Sunday.

just buttin' in, ski area socked in today -- been snowing continuously in mtns -- bitterly cold next 24 hrs., warmer Sat, then more weather predicted Sun. -- once all this weather clears skiing will be s-w-e-et


piacere - 2/11/2017 at 02:29 PM

I tried skiing...once. Sunday River, Maine. As cold as I've ever been, I think it was like 2 degrees. Every time I tried getting off the ski lift, I fell on my face. Every time I tried "skiing" I fell on my face. Mountain was a sheet of ice. An absolutely painful, uncomfortable experience. Never went ever again.

but if it's your thing, go for it!


Stephen - 2/11/2017 at 03:24 PM

it'll be a world of difference in the right conditions -- w/all this new snow (&a lot more coming tmrw nite too), give it a whirl on a sunny day, you'll have a blast! It's the bomb

This is our neck of the woods.

http://data.newsday.com/long-island/maps/20170209_snow_totals_map

It was particularly bad for me because I did NOT follow my own advice. When I last looked at the maps the night before (radar), it seemed as though the heavy snow would not arrive till 10 am, so I thought I had plenty of time to get out to the gym and do a short workout. I never made it there. By 7:15 I was hit with a white out and it did not improve till noon time. White meaning you could not see what was on either side of the street, could not see traffic lights even with no one ahead of you. I turned around but it was too late. I made it to a shopping center and saw a store open so I went there to hang out till things improved, but they didn't. A nasty plow plowed me in while I was in the store, my defroster could not even keep the back window clear, much less could I see out the side windows with horizontal snow coming. Finally someone with a black pick up truck happened by, had mercy on me and plowed out the stuff I would not have even been able to shovel. The CEO of the store is going to hear from me. It was so bad on the road I could not get thru it. In the 5 hours it took me to traverse a 6 mile swath of road I did not see one plow, not one. I had to constantly pray for about the last few miles, because there was no way I was going to get thru that. When I finally got back to where I live, I could not get in the driveway. I had to shovel to barely get in. Later another nasty ass plowed several feet of snow right in back of my car. Too high, too packed in to shovel that down.

When I went out later that night to do a little more work, the cop who lives next door was out there with his snowblower aiming his snow directly at the side of my car. I did not yell, it was obvious what was happening. I just got in the car, sat quietly, and put on my Isis head chopping off looking ski mask just there watching him. For some reason he seemed to stop.

Yes I know it's all my fault. I did not follow my own advice, I should not have been on the road at 7 am, even though it wasn't bad then.

I hope it went better for everybody else, especially you Piacere.

February 20 -24, we need to watch, potential exists for MAJOR east coast snow. No it is not definite yet. We just have to be vigilant. We are now in winter.


Stephen - 2/23/2017 at 06:45 PM

We were -- wish like heck that forecast had been good --
instead, last week's plentiful snow/winter wonderland will be history by Saturday -- record warmth, flood watches in effect etc etc....too darned early for me


Wonder if it all might be connected to this blurb about the recent discovery of brave new cosmic worlds (from the Daily Galaxy):

NASA has just announced discover new solar system with ‘best chance yet of alien life’ .Life may have evolved on at least three planets in a newly discovered solar system just 39 light years from Earth, NASA has announced.​ Astronomers have detected no less than seven Earth-sized worlds orbiting a cool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1. The six inner planets lie in a temperate zone where surface temperatures range from zero to 100C. Of these, at least three are thought to be capable of having oceans, increasing the likelihood of life. No other known star system contains such a large number of Earth-sized and probably rocky planets.


gina - 2/23/2017 at 08:17 PM

Stephen, I heard the planets were in the Aquarius star system. That's kinda spooky, there's also some stuff about the Arabs, and this is true wanting to be able to go to Mars. The probes will be there by 2020 and they hope some colonization can occur by 2050. All I can think of is the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Total Recall. OMG, prophecy!


Stephen - 2/24/2017 at 06:04 PM

"Sign up for your vacation today! With Travel Agent Doug Quaid....." no wait
great flick, & yes, prophetic -- maybe it won't be in our lifetime, but these new finds have "future colonization" written all over them -- the photos on the Daily Galaxy website are awesome

record warmth continues, topping out tomorrow w/mid 50s, making it 3rd straight day of 50 degrees-plus weather -- on a better note, ski resorts really did well this season -- it was snowy both at Christmas, & this week's economically-crucial Mass. school vacation week -- big crowds both times

Winter ain't over till it's over.


Stephen - 3/4/2017 at 07:47 PM

That's for sure -- Bitterly cold here today in northern NE -- been a completely off the wall winter -- snowstorm couple weeks ago, then warm weather & a lot of rain -- now this cold snap -- then upper 40s predicted early next week

some cosmic check-ins/interstellar intuitions reveal a pattern setting up for a mid March blizzard -- fueled by full moon, also cold air rushing down from Hudson Bay/Canadian maritime regions, colliding w/unsettled weather here -- & whammo, nor'easter -- much like March 1993 blizzard -- just doing my cyber snowdance

Winter is not quite done yet.

By: Bob Henson, 3:57 PM GMT on March 09, 2017


Under brilliant blue skies, an onslaught of high wind swept across the Great Lakes region on Wednesday, causing damage and disruption on par with a major winter storm or a severe thunderstorm complex. About 1 million customers lost power in Michigan alone, and more than 800,000 of those remained without electricity on Thursday morning. More than 100,000 others were affected in parts of Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. It’s been the largest weather-relate...

(from Wunderground Category 6 blog).
https://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/show.html

Snow coming tomorrow to the northeast once again. Thunder, lightning, snow.

http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/meteomadness/snow-with-thunder- and-rates-of-1-2-inches-per-hour/70001077

The snow total estimates for Friday's storm are all over the place. There's a big difference between 1-3 and 4-7.

Weather.gov says 4-7"
NWS says 3-5"
Storm Team 4 says 2-4"
Joe Cioffi says 4-6"
Elliot Abrams says 1-3"

And then there are the European models that say 12".

The storm for next Tuesday can be 12-18+ inches. When winter is done then we get a month or two of quiet, then the OTHER season with torrential rain and squalls and 60+ mph winds. They want us to think this is normal, it's not.









Stephen - 3/10/2017 at 03:22 PM

Yes that's for sure -- winter is not quite done yet -- definitely lingering here -- 2nd straight weekend of bitterly cold weather predicted, after a midweek of upper 40s w/rain -- it's been that kind of pattern a lot this winter -- the frost layer has to be real deep

what a blow tho in western NY -- Buffalo & those places have snowy/windy winters anyway but this was way out there they said -- flattened in places

a little snow in northern NE, please


Stephen - 3/11/2017 at 04:02 PM

I don't know how wildlife survives late-winter extreme conditions (like today's) -- already weakened, exposed at all times to the weather, little foraging for food -- at their most vulnerable to predators

[Edited on 3/11/2017 by Stephen]


gina - 3/11/2017 at 07:02 PM


The wildlife just hide in the trees, caves or they flow south.

As to the Monday night into Tuesday storm, there are some variables between the GFS (American Model) and the European. We could get a lot of snow, a smaller amount (6" or less) or it could go out to sea. I am hoping it goes out to sea.

http://www.accuweather.com/en/videos/expert-forecasts/snowstorm-early-next- week-for-the-northeast/f4bzi5yte6o0cnlleinxd2ssq527igk4

gina - 3/12/2017 at 09:30 PM

The storm for Tuesday night into Wednesday, that's right 24 hours of hell is named Stella. Can I hang out the window like Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire and scream STEL-LAAAAAA?

Hurricane force wind gusts w/cross coast for many hours from MD to New Eng thru Tues.
Central pressure falls from 1002 - 976 mb in 12/hrs. This 00z EC run considerably different than prev 12z but more closely matches 00z from last night. Almost 50-million could see 1-foot+.ECMWF 00z lowers boom on big cities "crippling" blizzard Tues-Wed. Blizzard rapidly intensifies from 1012 mb --> 987 mb in 24-hours, qualifies as "bomb" or in weather terms, bombogenesis. Snow + wind should "cripple" I-95 corridor Tuesday. Hi-res NAM-WRF (3-km) parallel model at 60-hrs right about time NYC is getting rocked. 3-5" per hour snowfall rates. Initial estimates of Nor'easter snowfall ❄ from weather models fairly certain on 18-24"+ Philly, NYC, Boston. Wash DC on edge

1-2 feet of snow, strong winds - coastal gusts to hurricane force. Behind blizzard Wednesday morning, strong Arctic high pressure pushes front and freezing line to Atlantic seaboard & south Georgia.

https://twitter.com/ryanmaue

Do I need to look further? Piaceeeeeere!

TIMING:
Starts in DC around sunset Monday night.

Gets to Philly in the evening.

NYC - 2 AM - 5 AM, hard snow by 7 AM , 1-2" per hour.
Should be done 1 AM Tuesday (which is actually Wednesday morning).

BOSTON - 1 AM it will be done there.

Next storm, next Sunday, but nothing like this. After that more storms between 3/21, 23, 24.

Not much has changed in the forecast except that Bernie is reporting on the sleet and the mixing. although the timing for the start of the snow has been moved up, saying it will start after 1 am, and by the rush hour (which is really 5 hours around here). The main accumulating snow will stop between 3-5 pm.

The worst of it is supposed to be 5 AM - 1 PM
3-5 PM the accumulating snow stops.
Light snow continues till 8 pm or so.

There will be more snow showers Wednesday morning particularly after 11 AM.

Henry's got the Big Daddy hat on.

Bernie's take on the storm.

Those in the Hudson Valley need to stay home. DO NOT VENTURE OUT 8 - 9 AM. JUST DON'T. I don't even want to repeat what I heard from another news source. (oh you people, more than 9 inches per hour possible during that hour).

Dr. McBride has a different forecast than the others.

Tropical Storm Arlene Discussion Number 6
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL012017
500 PM AST Thu Apr 20 2017

I have to add one more surprise to my long hurricane forecasting
career. Unexpectedly, the subtropical cyclone became a tropical
depression this morning, and then it intensified to a tropical
storm. This intensity estimate is based on the cloud pattern
presentation on satellite imagery which shows moderate thunderstorm
activity surrounding an eye-type feature, and a convective ring in
microwave imagery. Initial intensity is set at 40 kt, although
estimates from TAFB suggest that the winds could have reached 45 kt
around 1800 UTC. Since that time, the cloud pattern has deteriorated
somewhat and winds probably have diminished. Despite the
intensification, Arlene is still forecast by all global models to
become absorbed by a nearby developing extratropical cyclone on
Friday.

Arlene is moving toward the west-northwest at 22 kt, while well
embedded in the fast flow surrounding the extratropical low. This
general motion around the low is expected until dissipation on
Friday.


"It is expected to dissipate on Friday". If they are wrong we should all go and stick out heads out the window and scream Whippin' Post!

Piacere, rescue me......

here is also some news regarding hurricane season. Experts have said they think there will be less Atlantic based storms due to the el nino which will create wind shear. They have named the storms. Let's wait till the season which starts June 1st to think about all that.


gina - 5/12/2017 at 11:19 PM

Northeast storm for tomorrow. 3/4 inch of rain during the day, another 1-2 inches of rain in the evening (after 7 pm). Could be a total of 2-3 inches rain when it is over and done, could also be gale force winds along the shorelines like 35 knots.

And yes, in about a week or two, you may hear more about Investigation 19P, which if it becomes a Tropical Storm, will be named Ella. You know you'll get info here first. This is Ella.

The first storm, Cindy will hit the Gulf Coast . Landfall 1 am Thursday Port Arthur/Galveston area.
Heavy rains coming before that even.

"On the forecast track, Cindy is expected to approach
the coast of southwest Louisiana late Wednesday or Wednesday night,
and move inland over western Louisiana and eastern Texas on
Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast before the system
reaches the coast on Thursday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km),
mainly to the north and east of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).

RAINFALL: Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over
southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and
the Florida Panhandle through Thursday. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5
inches with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches can be expected
farther west across southwest Louisiana into southeast Texas through
Thursday.

STORM SURGE: Inundation of 1 to 3 feet above ground level is
possible along the coast in portions of the Tropical Storm Warning
area.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two is possible this afternoon and tonight
from south-central Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle. "

Rockport and Port Aransas have suffered a lot of damage, Corpus Christi not so much.

As expected gas production is effected, and now guestimates are that the prices may go up 5-25 cents per gallon.

http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2017/08/26/hurricane-harvey-oil-gas-texas/

Tom Kloza, an analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, predicts that prices could rise by up to 25 cents a gallon, but that an increase of 5 cents to 15 cents is more likely, assuming that the hurricane doesn’t cause lasting damage to refineries.

As of Friday, the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said workers had been removed from 86 of the 737 manned platforms used to pump oil and gas from beneath the Gulf.
The agency estimated that platforms accounting for about 22 percent of oil production and 23 percent of natural gas output in the Gulf had been shut down.

Exxon Mobil closed two of its platforms and was evacuating all personnel in the expected path of the storm, said spokeswoman Suann Guthrie. Shell halted operations on a big floating oil-production platform, and Anadarko evacuated workers and shut down four facilities in the western Gulf while continuing to operate those east of the storm’s predicted path.

On shore, ConcoPhillips stopped all operations in the Eagle Ford shale formation, which lies across a swath of South Texas inland from the Gulf. A company spokeswoman cited safety and potential disruptions in getting oil and gas from the wells to market during the storm.



gina - 8/26/2017 at 08:28 PM

HARVEY

There is already devastation in Texas and there is more to come because the rain will continue till next Thursday. The Palacious Beaches are gone. Port Aransas has an RV/Trailer park that had "100% devastation". Pioneer Trailer Park. They are currently doing search and rescue operations there because 5,000 people stayed in the town Port Aransas and did not leave.

There 300,000 people statewide SO FAR with no power and that number may rise as the rains flood out more places over the coming days. Matagorda Residents who left cannot go home due to the power loss. Parts of I-10 are no longer passable. Corpus Christi can expect 30 MORE inches of rain on top of what has already come because of the duration of the storm.

People are still evacuating because of the rains to come in Abilene and parts north. Houston is expected to flood.

And it will be up to 108 degrees in California.

I think a lot of us just cannot even speak much about Harvey because the effect and damage will just be surreal. Those of us who live along a coastline are also thinking about what if scenarios. I remember when hurricane Irene was coming up here as a Cat 3 and nobody took it seriously. Dickey and his band even came up here to play a gig at the Winery right along the water in Manhattan. That man has the balls to stare the devil in the face and tell him to go eff himself he came to play his music and nothing's gonna stop him. The storm 'brushed' North Carolina and came up, but spared Long Island and actually did more damage where I was, stuck in Pennsylvania, 13 inches of rain in the mountains is much different than in a sea level city/town.

I feel bad for those people in Texas, some of whom will not have a home to go back to for a long time, and maybe not at all. Pray for those people.

It is expected to make a second landfall on Wednesday in the areas already hit. The second hit will only be as a Tropical Storm and will only bring 2-4" more rain.

Possible something for East Coast near 9-11 or shortly thereafter. It is called AL 93. It just came off Africa and is heading across the ocean. Too soon to say anything, just be aware.

ATLANTIC COAST - The storm is called Irma now and it will be a CAT 4 by the end of this week.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/tropical-storm-irma-forms-eastern-atlanti c
in their 12Z and 18Z Wednesday runs that Irma would be a major Category 3 hurricane with 115 mph winds by Monday, and I think this is a reasonable forecast.


https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/tropical-threat-to-track-across -atlantic-this-week-will-it-affect-the-us/70002598
Bernie's take on it. Impact zones potentially FLORIDA or along the EAST COAST.


https://www.yahoo.com/news/hurricane-irma-apos-rapidly-intensifying-1632464 20.html
Cat 4 in a weeks time.


Remarks: CAT 4 would destroy NY, even CAT 3 would be enough to knock out power for months etc. Being that it would arrive 10 days out from yesterday, that would be 9-10-17 or if it slowed down, 9-11-17. Maybe God has a different take on the 'war on terror' and the official story from that day in 2001. The punishments that come upon this nation will be his answer to the lies of the elite.

P.S. There may be another storm in the Gulf for that region next week, and I'm not talking about Irma.


gina - 8/31/2017 at 08:59 PM

IRMA - Will be CAT 5 by 9-4-17, winds 171 miles per hour sustained, gusts to 200 miles per hour, at least 30 inches of rain. This is projections from the GFS and the weather channel. Impact, models now suggest Carolinas/Georgia coastline. This is not written in stone, it is the projection at this time. Be aware, try to start making a plan just in case. You cannot sit there in a Cat 5 hurricane or even a Cat 4.

Joe explains the troughs also and shows the models. Carolinas/Georgia or Chesapeake Bay, Virginia.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvjgi42Wyfg&feature=youtu.be&a


Remarks: Long Island has 3 million people, NYC has 11 million. They never tell us to evacuate because nobody wants 14 million people taking to the roads trying to find someplace to go. If the models still look like Chesapeake Bay in a couple of days, heed the warning yourself.

9-3-17 Updates -nobody wants to tell you, but there are models and they say WILIMINGTON, NC is where it will hit. There are 54 foot waves with this storm.

Newest info suggest impact will be Wilmington, NC as a high Cat 3 - Cat 4. Chesapeake Bay is also possible, but it looks like Wilimington would be the target. And yes as it goes inland it would go over Raleigh. The videos below explain the troughs and stuff going on. As things changes, I'll put it up.

Here are some cool sites with model info.

https://www.windy.com/?2017-09-11-18,40.816,-73.118,5

https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/
Go to the hurricane models and see what they have.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

http://weather.gc.ca/hurricane/track_e.html


Remarks: At this point it looks like FLORIDA, but then some of the models have it on the east coast and then coming north. I saw a model Sunday, the one that had Wilmington as the point of impact, but after that it had it going to Washinngton, DC, so anything is possible. I remember when Hurricane Floyd was coming up here and they said there was no way it wouldn't, and then, it didn't. Same with Isabel. God can control and stop anything and steer it someplace else. Just pay attention, check on the models, get yourself a notebook, and start thinking strategically if you have to evacuate.

Strategic Thinking:

What do I need to take with me?

Make a list. Look at the stuff you use in your home now, in the morning, afternoon, evening, that's stuff you need.

Where can I go and how long do I need to be there?

What things will I need when I get someplace else, where are these places located? (banks, drug stores, food housing), get some paper maps in case the GPS goes down.

Be cognizant if your area is destroyed and uninhabitable after the storm, you need clothes etc. Try to take some totes with you, if you have an extra day or two, check out storage units in other locations and try to move some of your stuff in case you cannot come back.

Also get some coolers, ice packs stick them in your freezer now, get some tupperware, make yourself some stuff to eat before you leave, get ice from the local convenience store, there may be traffic jams. Take plastic bags (supermarket fruit/vegetable) with twist ties. You will have to put your garbage someplace so you don't attract bugs if there are no garbage cans along your journey. Take some toilet paper and paper towels, large garbage bags. Try to have a small shovel IF you end up having to use the woods as bathroom facilities, you have to bury that stuff 5 feet deep and preferably 16 feet from whereever you may have to camp out to prevent it from contaminating water sources. Yes get a tarp, take a camp chair with you, and some basic camping equipment just in case. Get a small hand held water purifier in case you have to camp in the woods. Devastation is different than let's just go to somebody's house for a few days. Think the best, prepare for the worst.

Portable device chargers, charged up. You need that.

Have you looked at a service provider map to see if your phone carrier has service in the areas you may need to evacuate to? Here in NY, if you go upstate only Tracfone works, the others don't.

Just make your list(s), and make a plan.

While the storm’s exact path is unclear, the Capital Weather Gang’s meteorologists issued similarly unnerving warnings of Irma being “likely to make landfall somewhere in Florida over the weekend” and saying that “the impact could be catastrophic.”

Scott has activated 100 members of the Florida National Guard and said he had directed all 7,000 members to report for duty on Friday. On Monday, Scott signed an executive order declaring an emergency in each of Florida’s 67 counties, pointing to forecasts at the time warning that Irma could make landfall in the southern or southwestern parts of the state and “travel up the entire spine of Florida.”

“Hurricane Irma is a major and life-threatening storm and Florida must be prepared,” Scott said in a statement accompanying the order.

There is still some difference in models. The European has Irma going thru the middle of Florida, while the GFS has it hit Miami then go out and go up along the coast till it comes in at Savannah.

There were reports that Macon was already a big parking lot, so that may get worse since 6.5 million of the 20 million residents of Florida were now told to leave due to irma. 20 million residents, a 10 foot storm surge, 6.5 million told to evacuate.

http://www.fox13news.com/live


Remarks: It could have been worse, IF Irma hit Miami head on as was anticipated. So maybe the govt. did steer it away from the shorelines as much as possible. One other thing going on is that we may be in the beginning stages of the pole shift. Which will cause more intense storms to happen. Are you aware that there was a quake yesterday along the Juan de Fuca plate that caused the tectonic plate boundary to move 32 feet? Are you also aware that when the pole shift happens, and some say 9-23-17 is the date it is expected to, when the shift happens, the new pole will be off Brazil? That in and of itself will cause all kinds of weather changes. The press is not supposed to say 'climate change' anymore, they have some other catch phrase but all this stuff is going on.

Jose will become a powerful storm and it will be in the Atlantic potential strike date would be the 17th Carolina or NY IF it does not turn. There is still time on this one, but people along points North Carolina and north should begin considering what if they need to get out the way. I AM NOT SAYING IT IS GOING TO HIT EITHER OF THOSE TWO PLACES, JUST KEEP A LOOKOUT AND BE READY IN CASE....

INUIT ELDERS NOTICE THE SUN IS NOT IN THE SAME PLACE IN THE SKY

The axis of the earth has changed. This in turn effects the weather due to the gravitational pulls, the geomagnetic grid etc. The people who noticed it back in 2015 were the Inuits who live along the Artic. What NASA did with the info. is not known. Each of the strong earthquakes we have changes the axis of the earth. I heard recently that the Mexico quake moved the Juan De Fuca tectonic plate 10 or 12 feet. The large quakes in previous years in Fukushima, Christchurch, New Zealand and Chile, also effected the axis of the earth, which effects the rotation etc. When the pole shift happens people are now saying the new pole will be in Brazil. Others say we may be in for a new ice age coming.

http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2015/04/earth-has-shifted-inuit-elders-issue.h tml

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cG3H-A_bEw
Moon not where it should be rotated to the right, or earth has rotated to the left. The Torah even said there would be changes in the moon and it gave the year which translates to 2011.
2-3-16

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLZ3ZAI-fTY
polar shift on the moon Jan 2011 (the music is awful turn your sound down)

UPDATE 9-13-17

There is someone who has figured out what happened. The poles have moved. The new north pole at this time is off of London, it is closest to Stonehenge. The new south pole is at New Zealand. The moon flipped on December 11, 2011, 1 1/2 hours later it had rotated 180 degrees. Antarctica shifted 90 degrees. The poles are not going to stay in these locations forever. Eventually the new North Pole will be in Russia and the new south pole will be in Cape Town, South Africa. When the land changes occur, the part of Africa that has Capetown in it, will move and shift going to the position that Antarctica is in now.

The thing is this, we are used to the equator being in the middle of our earth. The new equator will not be there. The magnetic grids of the planet will be changed. This has already effected airports where they have had to adjust where their landing strips are because the equipment the pilots fly by is no longer accurate to the runways, when they set the course for the plane, it has to adjust for these changes.

People keep talking about climate change noticing the weather changes, but it is not due to climate change like too much smog going up there influencing the weather. The problem is the tilt of the planet has changed, which means it does not face the sun the same way. The planet rotates on it's axis and it is now tilted differently. This effects the crops and food sources, it effects the ice in the arctic etc. which is melting. This melting ice changes the salinity of the oceans, which effects the storms including hurricanes because there is this symbiosis between the oceans and the sky/atmosphere.

Greenland experienced differences in their daylight and why the Inuits up there in the arctic are getting more hours of daylight. This is due to the tilt of the earth changing and putting us closer to the sun.


The tilt of our planet is now 92,000,000 miles from the sun. Previously it was 94.2 million miles. So now we are closer to the sun in certain places. North America, Europe, China, India, reportedly will become "unbearably hot" in the what is normally our winter time (January). Yes the climate will change, but it is due to the change in the axis, tilt of the earth, as well as the rotation.

The new north pole is currently located at North 51 degrees, 22.949 East, 12.922 degrees. It is located off Herne Bay, England at 23.4 degrees.

The new poles are temporary, it is still migrating. Nibiru has caused this.

Why is this happening? It is how God will destroy the peoples he said he would destroy. The heat will destroy the crops, famine, pestilence will occur, the heat will kill many and some people will freeze to death if they remain in areas that will no longer support life.

I will gather more info. to expand on this.

Axis shifts have happened before. Here is info. on one of them.

JOSE - it will not be doing anything that could be a threat to any land mass till late next week and it may not come in at all. it is complicated. Bernie understands all the possibilities and points out what is going on. I did see a model that had it just off the Jersey shore on Thurs. the 21st, but it is too early to say that is what will happen. If it did go in there, it would be in the same areas as Sandy, so we do need to check in on this storm.

JOSE - timing and locations and effects.

http://www.weatheroptics.net/top-stories/hurricane-jose-targets-southeaster n-new-england

The storm is expected to track southeast of Long Island on Tuesday afternoon and southeastern New England by Tuesday night into Wednesday. Due to the influences discussed above, Jose will be a larger storm by the time it comes close to these areas, however the current forecast from WeatherOptics meteorologist keep the worst impacts off the coast at this time.

Expected to be a tropical storm by Tuesday, Jose will likely produce winds around 30 to 45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph along the immediate New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern Massachusetts coasts. Rainfall amounts will range from 2 to 3 inches around Nantucket, 1 to 2 inches over the rest of southeastern Massachusetts, and 0.5 to 1 inch of rain along the immediate New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, and Rhode Island coasts. Minor to moderate coastal flooding will also be a threat along the New Jersey coast up to southeastern Massachusetts, along with a very strong rip tide.


Remarks: As to the others up and coming, Maria and Lee,

Maria WEDNESDAY 2 p.m. PUERTO RICO CAT 4 130 miles per hour.
THURSDAY 2 p.m. DOMINICAN REPUBLIC CAT 2 up to 110 miles per hour.

I'm not going beyond that yet.

Update: Maria will NOT go thru Florida, it will turn and come up in the Atlantic and is not supposed to hit any land.

Update 9-21-17 After Maria is done gong thru the Carribean Islands and the Bahamas, it is believed that it will go out in the ocean and not strike any other land.

Apparently there is info. suggesting that the storm will reach CAT 4 status, yet most of the other weather people are STILL saying it would hit the Florida Panhandle as a Cat 1, 75 mph storm on Sunday, so I don't know what is going on.

https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/storminfo/16L_intensity_latest.png

What we know right now:

Nate made landfall over northeastern Nicaragua late Thursday morning as a tropical storm with 40 mph winds, and tropical storm warnings are up for much of the coast of Nicaragua and Honduras. However, the main danger to Central America from Nate will be torrential rains: 15 – 20” in Nicaragua, 5 – 10” in Panama and Costa Rica, and 4 - 8” in Honduras and the eastern Yucatan Peninsula. Much of the heavy rain in Nicaragua, Coast Rica, and Panama will occur on the Pacific side, as Nate’s large circulation pulls moisture from the Pacific across Central America and into the Southwest Caribbean. Satellite rainfall estimates show that the heaviest rains from Nate thus far have been on the Pacific side of Costa Rica and Panama, where over 8” of rain has fallen over the past 7 days.

Once Nate finishes its traverse of northeastern Honduras on Thursday evening and emerges into the Western Caribbean, the storm will be in a very favorable environment for intensification. Nate will be passing over an area of very high ocean heat content (OHC) in the Western Caribbean, with very warm waters that extend to great depth. Thursday SHIPS model Rapid Intensification Index gave Nate a 40% chance of being a Category 1 hurricane with 75 mph winds by 8 am Friday, 12 hours before it will make its closest pass to the Cozumel/Cancun area. The SHIPS model Rapid Intensification Index from 12Z Thursday morning showed a 48% chance of Nate gaining 65 knots of strength by Sunday, which would bring it to the Category 3 threshold (115 mph winds.)

By the time Nate reaches the United States, its quick movement will help limit the risk of extreme rainfall totals. A swath of 3 – 6” can be expected within about 150 miles of Nate’s center, from the Gulf Coast north across the Appalachians to parts of New York and/or New England.

Folks, it ain't looking so much like landfall for the Florida Panhandle.

GFS Run 60 hours out - Louisiana

As to why there is discrepancy among the models. The European thinks it would be the Florida Panhandle, but the GFS does not. It gets complicated because of troughs, windsheer etc. Levi did a very detailed video yesterday about the variables.

The meteorologists today have said they believe NATE will come onshore as a Cat 1 or weak Cat 2. The impact zone is still believed to be New Orleans.

This was Bernie's video from yesterday.

Cat 1-2

A storm surge warning is up for the Gulf Coast from Morgan City, LA to the Alabama/Florida border, as well as along the northern and western shores of Lake Pontchartrain. In these areas, 4 – 7 feet of inundation were predicted by NHC in their 11 am EDT Friday advisory, assuming that Nate were to arrive during high tide.

I sure hope they don't make Jim Cantore stand out there in NATE to show people how bad it is. It's Yom Kippur, have mercy on him, I'm sure he is repentent.


Also, there is another system within 5 days there is a 70% chance of it forming into a storm in the Atlantic quite a bit North of Florida. Too soon to start speculating on that yet, just be aware it is there.

Remarks: Why all these storms? Well it could be the folks who believe they will "own the weather" by 2025, or it could be God who told you in the Bible that men would faint from the roaring of the seas during the tribulation times. When I look these hurricanes, I look to see if it looks perfectly formed, those are the ones I think are from God, the ones that are perfectly symmetrical, the ones that confound the weather scientists who say the storms are not doing what they should be doing because God controls and does what he wants to. Bottom line is, the coastlines will be pummelled and hammerred if not by the 'we own the weather' people, then consider it God who is starting to unleash his punishments on an unrepentant nation.

Are we overreacting to the hurricanes? Nope.

Including Ophelia, there have been 15 tropical storms, 10 hurricanes and five major hurricanes so far in the 2017 Atlantic season, AND

"A strong tropical system centered a few hundred miles east of the Leeward Islands is being watched for possible development late in the upcoming weekend or early next week," Kottlowski said. Kottlowski anticipates that the only landmass that would see direct impacts from this system if it does develop would be Bermuda.


"I think there will be at least two more tropical storms, of which one or two can become a hurricane into December," Kottlowski said. "There is still a chance of one more major (Category 3) hurricane."

Remark: Hurricanes in December? Whippin post!

Despite these modest statements, the history of weather modification and the desire to manipulate hurricanes has a history stretching back at least 100 years to people often known as “rainmakers.” The rainmakers were men who studied “pluviculture,” or the act of attempting to artificially create rain, usually to fight drought. Most of these men were seen as scammers, traveling salesman pitching fantasy ideas to the gullible about creating rain. However, one of the most successful rainmakers was Charles Hatfield.

In 1915, Hatfield began working for the San Diego city council to produce enough rain to fill the Morena Dam reservoir. Hatfield was told he would receive $10,000 once the reservoir was filled. In early January 1915, rain began pouring down over the dam, growing heavier with each day that passed. On January 20, the dam broke, causing mass flooding that led to an estimated 20 deaths.

A (Brief) History of Weather Modification

After legal battles ensued, Hatfield was absolved of any wrongdoing when the storm was officially ruled an act of God. However, due to the ruling, Hatfield’s work was seen as a failure, and he was (mostly) relegated to forgotten pages of history.

Beginning in 1947, General Electric, the U.S. Army Corps, the U.S. Air Force, and the Office of Naval Research began attempting to modify hurricanes. The main scientist behind the research was a Nobel Peace Prize-winning chemist named Irving Langmuir. While working as a chemist with GE, Langmuir began to hypothesize about manipulating hurricanes. In October 1947, the researchers decided to seed a hurricane with ice pellets. The hurricane had been drifting to the northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, but after being seeded, the hurricane grew stronger and crashed into Savannah, Georgia.

There was a public backlash and threats of lawsuits against Langmuir and the research team. Despite Langmuir claiming responsibility for affecting the storm, researchers concluded his work did not cause the change in direction. The lawsuits were dropped, but Langmuir continued to work on weather modification. It’s not hard to imagine the U.S. military and General Electric wanting to distance themselves from the destruction by calling their own project a failure. Interestingly, Wikipedia references a 1965 article from the Sun-Sentinel titled “Betsy’s Turnaround Stirs Big Question.” (Betsy was another hurricane reported to have been modified.) The article, written more than a decade later, apparently reports that a hurricane in 1947 “went whacky” and that “[t]welve years later it was admitted the storm had in fact been seeded.” Unfortunately, there is not a digital copy of the article available to verify the claims on Wikipedia.

Most reports on Project Cirrus claim the 1947 hurricane was the only attempt, but a look at records maintained by General Electric indicate there were several more tests on hurricanes. The records list Albuquerque, New Mexico; Mt. Washington, New Hampshire; Burbank, California; and several locations in New York as test sites for cloud seeding with silver iodide. Another section lists cloud seeding attempts in Honduras by Langmuir. The report stated:

“In 1948 and 1949, Langmuir visited Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Rica to study tropical cloud formations, and particularly to learn what was being done by Joe Silverthorne, a commercial cloud seeder, in seeding clouds for the United Fruit Company. The work was being conducted for the purpose of testing out the possibility of controlling rainfall, and particularly in the hope of stopping blow-downs that result from winds associated with thunderstorms, which occasionally destroy large stands of fruit trees.”

The GE report is well worth your time and attention. It details the contracts between the U.S. military and GE, as well as other historical details regarding GE’s attempts to modify weather.

More recent examples of attempts at weather modification involve programs known as Project Stormfury, Project Cirrus, and Operation Popeye. Project Stormfury was a U.S. government project aimed at weakening Tropical Cyclones by seeding them with silver iodide. From 1961 to 1971, researchers sprayed silver iodide into hurricanes, believing the supercooled water might disrupt the structure of the storm. Officially, the project has been ruled a failure, but it was not the only attempt to manipulate weather in this time period.

One example of seeding a hurricane that may have actually been successful was Hurricane Betsy in 1965. As the Sun-Sentinel reported in 1965:

“Hurricane Betsy was building strength; it looked like it was aiming for South Carolina, posing no threat to South Florida. But on Saturday, Sept. 4, the storm whirled to a stop, about 350 miles east of Jacksonville. When Betsy started moving again on Sunday, she had changed directions. The storm plowed through the Bahamas Monday night, then mauled South Florida a day later.”

Officially, the U.S. government says Hurricane Betsy was designated to be seeded but that apparently, that decision was changed at the last moment. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recalled the event on the 50th anniversary:

“Dr. Joanne Simpson, Project Director, had ordered the fleet of Navy and Weather Bureau research aircraft to deploy to Puerto Rico on August 28th. Over the next two days, the planes monitored the storm’s slow progress toward the designated part of the ocean where they could carry out their weather modification experiments. By August 31st, Betsy had just managed to crawl into the area as a hurricane, so a seeding experiment was scheduled for the next day. The first aircraft had already taken off from Roosevelt Roads Naval Air Station, PR the morning of September 1st when word came from the National Hurricane Center that overnight Betsy had completed a loop in its track and was now headed southward and out of the allowed seeding area. The seeding experiments were called off and the mission changed to a ‘dry run’, where the same patterns were flown but no silver iodide was released into the storm. Unfortunately, no one informed the press which had been alerted to STORMFURY’s seeding intentions the previous day.”

The press and the public blamed the researchers for the 138 mph winds and destruction from Betsy. Congress was skeptical of further programs until the researchers were able to smooth things over. “I was totally unaware of the level of emotion and hostility that was directed against anything that had to do with cloud seeding,” Joanne Simpson, one time head of Project Stormfury, told NASA. Simpson would go on to work on a cloud-seeding project called FACE (the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment).

With Hurricane Betsy and the 1947 hurricane, we have two situations where cloud-seeding was reportedly happening, and we have two disastrous outcomes. In both situations, the scientists claimed no responsibility, and no one was held accountable. Again, is it that hard to imagine a government official (or a scientist under government contract) lying about the nature of the work? Especially if that work resulted in millions of dollars in property damage and deaths?

The NOAA even acknowledges that “[s]ince no one at Project STORMFURY nor in the Weather Bureau had advised the public or the press that the actual seeding of the storm had been scrubbed, many people believed it had been carried out and the link to its odd path seemed plausible. Although attempts to clarify the facts about STORMFURY and Betsy were made after the fact, the notion of a link persists to the present.”

Weather as a Weapon of War

Operation Popeye was a now-declassified attempt by the U.S. military to modify the weather in Southeast Asia from 1967 to 1972. The U.S. military conducted cloud-seeding operations over the Ho-Chi Minh trail during the Vietnam War. Cloud-seeding typically involves planes flying overhead and spraying silver iodide into the air. The goal in Vietnam was to extend monsoon season and flood out the enemy. It was reported that the operations were “tightly controlled” by Henry Kissinger, who was serving as Secretary of State at the time. Operation Popeye is the first modern example (that we know of) where attempts were made to use weather as a weapon of war.

In April 1976, the New York Times wrote about the situation and the challenges weather modification created:

“Can a nation that tampers with natural balances deny responsibility for what follows? This question, together with recognition that United States policy condemns warfare aimed at civilians, prompted Senator Claiborne Pell in 1973 to introduce a resolution calling for an international treaty to prohibit environmental warfare ‘or the carrying out of any research or experimentation directed thereto.’ The Senate voted 82 to 10 to approve the resolution, which lacks force of law.”

The international treaty referred to is the Environmental Modification Treaty implemented and signed by the United States and other nations to halt global weather modification in the wake of the bad publicity. The Times noted:

“Unfortunately it is far weaker than the Senate resolution. For example, it fails to prohibit military research or development of environmental?modification techniques, and allows all ‘peaceful’ work on such things.”

So as long as a nation claims they are conducting peaceful weather modification, they are not violating the treaty. Further, there is no international body to enforce and punish violations of the treaty.

The Times also mentions the Department of Defense’s “Climate Dynamics” program, formerly known as Project Nile Blue. A 1976 report from Milton Leitenberg for the Federation of Scientists elaborates on the origins of Nile Blue. “Beginning in 1969, ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency in the U.S. Department of Defense, began funding a project called “Nile Blue (Climate Modification Research),” Leitenberg wrote.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) was the predecessor to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a secretive agency within the Department of Defense. DARPA is known for developing exotic and emerging technologies for the military. These reports listed above indicated that Project STORMFURY and Project Nile Blue were some of the earliest known military operations conducted in the name of manipulating the weather, including hurricanes.

Leitenberg also noted two examples of times the U.S. has been accused of using weather modification on other nations. The was first related to alleged cloud seeding over Cuba in 1969 and 1970 in an alleged effort to destroy the sugar crops. In the second case, the director of the geographical research center of the University of Mexico implied that the United States was to blame for the effects of Hurricane Fifi over Honduras in 1974. A story from The Naples Daily News on July 15, 1975, expanded upon this claim:

“Dr. Jorge Vivo, director of the Geographic Research Center of the University of Mexico, said Monday the United States ‘artificially detoured’ the hurricane to Honduras to save Florida’s tourist industry. But Neil Frank, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said Monday night U.S. officials did nothing to alter the hurricane’s path. Vivo told the newspaper El Sol de Mexico he held the United States responsible for 10,000 deaths and millions of dollars in damage caused by Fifi in the Central American nation. He said he believed U.S. weather authorities used silver iodide against Fifi as part of what he called ‘a systematic action’ to change its course.”

More recently, we have seen accusations that the CIA is manipulating the weather. In February 2015, while speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Professor Alan Robock discussed the possibility that the CIA is using the weather as a weapon of war. Robock has conducted research for the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) in the past. Robock said he was phoned by two men claiming to be from the CIA and asking whether or not it was possible for hostile governments to use geoengineering against the United States. Geoengineering is another form of weather modification that involves a range of different proposals for combatting climate change.

Despite a lack of concrete evidence to back these claims, we know the military has a history of testing weather modification and has specifically mentioned using the weather as a weapon. For example, In a 1996 document entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather by 2025” the U.S. Air Force discussed a number of proposals for using the weather as a weapon.

Whatever view you take of these projects, the fact remains that they helped spur the movement towards using computer models to attempt to predict the weather. Quite simply, the history of computer model weather prediction is intertwined with the military’s attempts to modify the weather. Weather historian James Fleming writes that the two men largely responsible for computer modeling are Vladimir Zworykin, an RCA engineer noted for his early work in television technology, and John von Neumann, a mathematician with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1945, Zworykin was promoting the idea that electronic computers could process and analyze mass amounts of meteorological data and issue accurate forecasts.

“The eventual goal to be attained is the international organization of means to study weather phenomena as global phenomena and to channel the world’s weather, as far as possible, in such a way as to minimize the damage from catastrophic disturbances, and otherwise to benefit the world to the greatest extent by improved climatic conditions where ­possible,” Zworykin wrote. According to Fleming, Neumann agreed with this outlook, stating, “I agree with you completely. This would provide a basis for scientific approach[es] to influencing the weather.”

Modern Hurricane Modification

In 2005, following the destruction left by Hurricane Katrina, USA Today wrote:

“In fact, military officials and weather modification experts could be on the verge of joining forces to better gauge, react to, and possibly nullify future hostile forces churned out by Mother Nature.”

On November 10, 2005, Dr. Joseph Golden, former manager of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and veteran of Project STORMFURY, testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Disaster Prediction & Prevention, warning about the need for hurricane modification.

“After the horrendous devastation and loss of life from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, I have been asked several times about the possibility of hurricane modification,” Golden stated. “I firmly believe that we are in a much better position, both with the science and the undergirding technology, than we were when Project STORMFURY was terminated. The need for a renewed national commitment and funding for weather modification research has become more urgent.”

Golden is also involved the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP). In 2010, he gave a presentation discussing how the Department of Homeland Security asked the NOAA to organize a workshop on possible new scientific theory and approaches to hurricane modification in February 2008.

It seems likely that various agencies of the U.S. government began heavily investing in studying weather modification following the destructive hurricane seasons of 2005 and 2008. The idea that the U.S. government could be experimenting with controlling or steering hurricanes may sound like fantasy, but the fact of the matter is the government continues to invest in hurricane modification research. Is it possible that the U.S. government, under the direction of the CIA or the DOD, is working with private industries like General Electric to continue experimenting with weather modification technology? Should the public trust that government officials would fess up to secret experiments?

Depends on if you think they are looking out for you and for everyone in this country.

Officially, the project has been ruled a failure, but it was not the only attempt to manipulate weather in this time period.

One example of seeding a hurricane that may have actually been successful was Hurricane Betsy in 1965. As the Sun-Sentinel reported in 1965:

“Hurricane Betsy was building strength; it looked like it was aiming for South Carolina, posing no threat to South Florida. But on Saturday, Sept. 4, the storm whirled to a stop, about 350 miles east of Jacksonville. When Betsy started moving again on Sunday, she had changed directions. The storm plowed through the Bahamas Monday night, then mauled South Florida a day later.”

Officially, the U.S. government says Hurricane Betsy was designated to be seeded but that apparently, that decision was changed at the last moment. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recalled the event on the 50th anniversary:

“Dr. Joanne Simpson, Project Director, had ordered the fleet of Navy and Weather Bureau research aircraft to deploy to Puerto Rico on August 28th. Over the next two days, the planes monitored the storm’s slow progress toward the designated part of the ocean where they could carry out their weather modification experiments. By August 31st, Betsy had just managed to crawl into the area as a hurricane, so a seeding experiment was scheduled for the next day. The first aircraft had already taken off from Roosevelt Roads Naval Air Station, PR the morning of September 1st when word came from the National Hurricane Center that overnight Betsy had completed a loop in its track and was now headed southward and out of the allowed seeding area. The seeding experiments were called off and the mission changed to a ‘dry run’, where the same patterns were flown but no silver iodide was released into the storm. Unfortunately, no one informed the press which had been alerted to STORMFURY’s seeding intentions the previous day.”

The press and the public blamed the researchers for the 138 mph winds and destruction from Betsy. Congress was skeptical of further programs until the researchers were able to smooth things over. “I was totally unaware of the level of emotion and hostility that was directed against anything that had to do with cloud seeding,” Joanne Simpson, one time head of Project Stormfury, told NASA. Simpson would go on to work on a cloud-seeding project called FACE (the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment).

With Hurricane Betsy and the 1947 hurricane, we have two situations where cloud-seeding was reportedly happening, and we have two disastrous outcomes. In both situations, the scientists claimed no responsibility, and no one was held accountable. Again, is it that hard to imagine a government official (or a scientist under government contract) lying about the nature of the work? Especially if that work resulted in millions of dollars in property damage and deaths?

The NOAA even acknowledges that “[s]ince no one at Project STORMFURY nor in the Weather Bureau had advised the public or the press that the actual seeding of the storm had been scrubbed, many people believed it had been carried out and the link to its odd path seemed plausible. Although attempts to clarify the facts about STORMFURY and Betsy were made after the fact, the notion of a link persists to the present.”

Weather as a Weapon of War

Operation Popeye was a now-declassified attempt by the U.S. military to modify the weather in Southeast Asia from 1967 to 1972. The U.S. military conducted cloud-seeding operations over the Ho-Chi Minh trail during the Vietnam War. Cloud-seeding typically involves planes flying overhead and spraying silver iodide into the air. The goal in Vietnam was to extend monsoon season and flood out the enemy. It was reported that the operations were “tightly controlled” by Henry Kissinger, who was serving as Secretary of State at the time. Operation Popeye is the first modern example (that we know of) where attempts were made to use weather as a weapon of war.

In April 1976, the New York Times wrote about the situation and the challenges weather modification created:

“Can a nation that tampers with natural balances deny responsibility for what follows? This question, together with recognition that United States policy condemns warfare aimed at civilians, prompted Senator Claiborne Pell in 1973 to introduce a resolution calling for an international treaty to prohibit environmental warfare ‘or the carrying out of any research or experimentation directed thereto.’ The Senate voted 82 to 10 to approve the resolution, which lacks force of law.”

The international treaty referred to is the Environmental Modification Treaty implemented and signed by the United States and other nations to halt global weather modification in the wake of the bad publicity. The Times noted:

“Unfortunately it is far weaker than the Senate resolution. For example, it fails to prohibit military research or development of environmental?modification techniques, and allows all ‘peaceful’ work on such things.”

So as long as a nation claims they are conducting peaceful weather modification, they are not violating the treaty. Further, there is no international body to enforce and punish violations of the treaty.

The Times also mentions the Department of Defense’s “Climate Dynamics” program, formerly known as Project Nile Blue. A 1976 report from Milton Leitenberg for the Federation of Scientists elaborates on the origins of Nile Blue. “Beginning in 1969, ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency in the U.S. Department of Defense, began funding a project called “Nile Blue (Climate Modification Research),” Leitenberg wrote.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) was the predecessor to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a secretive agency within the Department of Defense. DARPA is known for developing exotic and emerging technologies for the military. These reports listed above indicated that Project STORMFURY and Project Nile Blue were some of the earliest known military operations conducted in the name of manipulating the weather, including hurricanes.

Leitenberg also noted two examples of times the U.S. has been accused of using weather modification on other nations. The was first related to alleged cloud seeding over Cuba in 1969 and 1970 in an alleged effort to destroy the sugar crops. In the second case, the director of the geographical research center of the University of Mexico implied that the United States was to blame for the effects of Hurricane Fifi over Honduras in 1974. A story from The Naples Daily News on July 15, 1975, expanded upon this claim:

“Dr. Jorge Vivo, director of the Geographic Research Center of the University of Mexico, said Monday the United States ‘artificially detoured’ the hurricane to Honduras to save Florida’s tourist industry. But Neil Frank, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said Monday night U.S. officials did nothing to alter the hurricane’s path. Vivo told the newspaper El Sol de Mexico he held the United States responsible for 10,000 deaths and millions of dollars in damage caused by Fifi in the Central American nation. He said he believed U.S. weather authorities used silver iodide against Fifi as part of what he called ‘a systematic action’ to change its course.”

More recently, we have seen accusations that the CIA is manipulating the weather. In February 2015, while speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Professor Alan Robock discussed the possibility that the CIA is using the weather as a weapon of war. Robock has conducted research for the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) in the past. Robock said he was phoned by two men claiming to be from the CIA and asking whether or not it was possible for hostile governments to use geoengineering against the United States. Geoengineering is another form of weather modification that involves a range of different proposals for combatting climate change.

Despite a lack of concrete evidence to back these claims, we know the military has a history of testing weather modification and has specifically mentioned using the weather as a weapon. For example, In a 1996 document entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather by 2025” the U.S. Air Force discussed a number of proposals for using the weather as a weapon.

Whatever view you take of these projects, the fact remains that they helped spur the movement towards using computer models to attempt to predict the weather. Quite simply, the history of computer model weather prediction is intertwined with the military’s attempts to modify the weather. Weather historian James Fleming writes that the two men largely responsible for computer modeling are Vladimir Zworykin, an RCA engineer noted for his early work in television technology, and John von Neumann, a mathematician with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1945, Zworykin was promoting the idea that electronic computers could process and analyze mass amounts of meteorological data and issue accurate forecasts.

“The eventual goal to be attained is the international organization of means to study weather phenomena as global phenomena and to channel the world’s weather, as far as possible, in such a way as to minimize the damage from catastrophic disturbances, and otherwise to benefit the world to the greatest extent by improved climatic conditions where ­possible,” Zworykin wrote. According to Fleming, Neumann agreed with this outlook, stating, “I agree with you completely. This would provide a basis for scientific approach[es] to influencing the weather.”

Modern Hurricane Modification

In 2005, following the destruction left by Hurricane Katrina, USA Today wrote:

“In fact, military officials and weather modification experts could be on the verge of joining forces to better gauge, react to, and possibly nullify future hostile forces churned out by Mother Nature.”

On November 10, 2005, Dr. Joseph Golden, former manager of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and veteran of Project STORMFURY, testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Disaster Prediction & Prevention, warning about the need for hurricane modification.

“After the horrendous devastation and loss of life from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, I have been asked several times about the possibility of hurricane modification,” Golden stated. “I firmly believe that we are in a much better position, both with the science and the undergirding technology, than we were when Project STORMFURY was terminated. The need for a renewed national commitment and funding for weather modification research has become more urgent.”

Golden is also involved the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP). In 2010, he gave a presentation discussing how the Department of Homeland Security asked the NOAA to organize a workshop on possible new scientific theory and approaches to hurricane modification in February 2008.

It seems likely that various agencies of the U.S. government began heavily investing in studying weather modification following the destructive hurricane seasons of 2005 and 2008. The idea that the U.S. government could be experimenting with controlling or steering hurricanes may sound like fantasy, but the fact of the matter is the government continues to invest in hurricane modification research. Is it possible that the U.S. government, under the direction of the CIA or the DOD, is working with private industries like General Electric to continue experimenting with weather modification technology? Should the public trust that government officials would fess up to secret experiments?

Depends on if you think they are looking out for you and for everyone in this country.

Something Gina posted some time back, IIRC, is proving out according to a radio report I heard today, which said that starting in 2030, NYC can expect catastrophic flooding every 5 years because of global warming -- one never knows for sure about this stuff but the talking heads do seem to getting more & more convinced...

Despite these modest statements, the history of weather modification and the desire to manipulate hurricanes has a history stretching back at least 100 years to people often known as “rainmakers.” The rainmakers were men who studied “pluviculture,” or the act of attempting to artificially create rain, usually to fight drought.

A (Brief) History of Weather Modification

Despite these modest statements, the history of weather modification and the desire to manipulate hurricanes has a history stretching back at least 100 years to people often known as “rainmakers.” The rainmakers were men who studied “pluviculture,” or the act of attempting to artificially create rain, usually to fight drought.

Born in 1875, Hatfield migrated to Southern California and studied pluviculture, eventually creating a secret mixture of 23 chemicals he said could induce rain. Using his secret mixture, Hatfield successfully created storms several times and began to find work creating rain.

In 1915, Hatfield began working for the San Diego city council to produce enough rain to fill the Morena Dam reservoir. Hatfield was told he would receive $10,000 once the reservoir was filled. In early January 1915, rain began pouring down over the dam, growing heavier with each day that passed. On January 20, the dam broke, causing mass flooding that led to an estimated 20 deaths. Hatfield told the press he was not to blame, stating the city should have taken precautions. The city refused to pay Hatfield unless he also accepted liability for the damage and deaths. After legal battles ensued, Hatfield was absolved of any wrongdoing when the storm was officially ruled an act of God. However, due to the ruling, Hatfield’s work was seen as a failure, and he was (mostly) relegated to forgotten pages of history.

Beginning in 1947, General Electric, the U.S. Army Corps, the U.S. Air Force, and the Office of Naval Research began attempting to modify hurricanes. The main scientist behind the research was a Nobel Peace Prize-winning chemist named Irving Langmuir. While working as a chemist with GE, Langmuir began to hypothesize about manipulating hurricanes. In October 1947, the researchers decided to seed a hurricane with ice pellets. The hurricane had been drifting to the northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, but after being seeded, the hurricane grew stronger and crashed into Savannah, Georgia.

There was a public backlash and threats of lawsuits against Langmuir and the research team. Despite Langmuir claiming responsibility for affecting the storm, researchers concluded his work did not cause the change in direction. The lawsuits were dropped, but Langmuir continued to work on weather modification. It’s not hard to imagine the U.S. military and General Electric wanting to distance themselves from the destruction by calling their own project a failure. Interestingly, Wikipedia references a 1965 article from the Sun-Sentinel titled “Betsy’s Turnaround Stirs Big Question.” (Betsy was another hurricane reported to have been modified.) The article, written more than a decade later, apparently reports that a hurricane in 1947 “went whacky” and that “[t]welve years later it was admitted the storm had in fact been seeded.” Unfortunately, there is not a digital copy of the article available to verify the claims on Wikipedia.

Most reports on Project Cirrus claim the 1947 hurricane was the only attempt, but a look at records maintained by General Electric indicate there were several more tests on hurricanes. The records list Albuquerque, New Mexico; Mt. Washington, New Hampshire; Burbank, California; and several locations in New York as test sites for cloud seeding with silver iodide. Another section lists cloud seeding attempts in Honduras by Langmuir. The report stated:

“In 1948 and 1949, Langmuir visited Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Rica to study tropical cloud formations, and particularly to learn what was being done by Joe Silverthorne, a commercial cloud seeder, in seeding clouds for the United Fruit Company. The work was being conducted for the purpose of testing out the possibility of controlling rainfall, and particularly in the hope of stopping blow-downs that result from winds associated with thunderstorms, which occasionally destroy large stands of fruit trees.”

The GE report is well worth your time and attention. It details the contracts between the U.S. military and GE, as well as other historical details regarding GE’s attempts to modify weather.

More recent examples of attempts at weather modification involve programs known as Project Stormfury, Project Cirrus, and Operation Popeye. Project Stormfury was a U.S. government project aimed at weakening Tropical Cyclones by seeding them with silver iodide. From 1961 to 1971, researchers sprayed silver iodide into hurricanes, believing the supercooled water might disrupt the structure of the storm. Officially, the project has been ruled a failure, but it was not the only attempt to manipulate weather in this time period.

Cliff notes please.




It is examples of how weather modification has been happening over a long amount of time. There is no more question of 'can they really do that' because the answer is yes they can and they have. But before you get your knickers in a knot, realize that other countries also have this technology, so weather warfare could be waged by one or more countries against another. If they all just left the weather up to God we'd probably be better off, but it's gone too far now. The magnetic poles have already shifted, the north pole is now off of England, the axis of the earth has changed and along with that, the rotation. The poles are moving and there are large areas of this planet that will eventually become un-inhabitable unless the scientists can correct/manipulate things.

So for anyone at this point to say, ah-ha we know you people have been doing this, now stop messin' with the weather is not gong to work.

And we still get the weather drama here too, even though it has been 60+ degrees.

Now we now. They are caused by the slowing of the earth's rotation, and the movement of the plates that causes pressure in the magma in the earth. The magnetic pole shift is starting. A new ice age is beginning.

The plates are moving, they always do, but the thing is this, we have the axis of the earth slowing down it's rotation, solar winds play a role in that, the tilt is off, AND the magnetic pole has moved significantly east. One weather forecaster said in 9 days we will get hit with a cold snap, I don't know if it will just stay that way after that.

Edgar Cayce saw in visions that Japan would eventually be completely submerged when the Ring of Fire and the plates there drag it under the ocean, California and the Pacific northwest will at some point experience a large quake that will break up the land, after that the southern coast of Georgia and South Carolina will go under water, and after that NYC. The Navy said the same thing back in the late 70's, their map has everything east of I-81 and he Appalachians going under water, due to land, earth changes, that happen from the earthquakes, oceans rising etc.

What we have come to know as the Barney effect (from Ryan a meteorologist) - because it shows on the maps as purple like the ole Barney the dinosaur, will be occurring after Christmas. Wisconsin will get up to 2 feet of snow from a system coming from the Pacific Northwest.

The old polar vortex returns. This is not part of the coming ice age, just the old polar vortex.



Stephen - 12/30/2017 at 05:39 PM

It's an interesting term (polar vortex) -- but a huge cold snap that's only supposed to get worse tonite into NYE, they're predicting -- too bad for ski areas, lotta snow fell ahead of vaca week, was freezing this entire week tho -- 10 below this AM -- 18 below predicted for NYE -- bundle up & happy NYE Gina & weather fans -- yep, as you said, Wisconsin, the midwest/UP etc got a lotta snow
but devastating cold up here & a big challenge for wildlife to survive in, or anything else

Reportin' in. Since we had a blizzard warning posted Wednesday afternoon, that pretty much told everybody what was comin' and THIS time I listened and stayed off the roads. The snow started when they said it would around 6 am and continued through most the day. I found the wind prediction forecasts and went out when there was not supposed to be the 50 mph gusts to start dealing with the drifts. I stopped getting angry at the man who uses his snowblower to make things more difficult for me, and the plow who likes to sneak the stuff behind my car. I just asked God to punish him; but I did not give that Entemann's Raspberry danish to the landlord (who has authority over this individual with his snowmageddon mayhem), I decided I deserved it more!

We are still dealing with the cold till next week too.

A wind chill advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Saturday. The high temperature on Friday will barely make it into the low teens. Throw in wind gusts up to 45 mph and it's a serious situation. Wind chill temperatures will be below zero all day Friday and could drop all the way to 20 below Friday night into early Saturday.

"The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin," the wind chill advisory says. Make sure to wear a hat and gloves if you need to be outside.

The second week of February there is some storm coming from the west that could combine with moisture from the south and create some bad storms for a lot of people. I don't even want to look at the long range models right now.

February 10th thru March is slated to be very cold, with the Alberta Clippers, blizzard conditions returning. One meteorologist puts it very seriously, THE COLD WILL BE LIFE THREATENING FROM GEORGIA TO MAINE.

I heard a news report today that there was a tsunami warning that caused people to panic this morning. I thought it was for the west coast, but apparently it was for New York City. Just a test they say.

Why do they feel they need to do a test?

If it happens, nobody can outrun that.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/06/tsunami-warning-that-panicked-people-n ationwide-was-test-that-went-wrong.html


Remarks: There have been videos by some who prophecy others call them conspiracy videos. Some of them say that evil elements of the shadow govt. want to plant a nuke in Babylon Canyon off the east coast of NY, detonate it, cause an earthquake along the tectonic plate which would cause a tidal wave that would result in flooding up to seven floors of high rise buildings in NYC, causing catastrophic effects not just there but also to other places along the coastline. If it happens, use your discernment to know the truth.

What are the benefits to them doing that? If the US has a big emergency, it becomes a national emergency. Martial law gets implemented. If the US goes down and is no longer a sovereign nation, then we cannot help any other allied nations, another group could take them over. It would fit in nicely for the group that wants a one world government.

gina - 2/17/2018 at 07:36 PM

There have been quakes in a volcano in La Palma in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands have Cumbro Vieja, if that blows, it will create a landslide into the ocean. The force of that would cause a tsunami that would take 8 hours to reach the east coast. More than 100 million people would die because the water comes in at 500 miles per hour and the coastline cities already have millions of people living there.

Additionally, Yellowstone has been experiencing swarms that some say are consistent with magma moving. If the caldera blows there, initially 87,000 people die immediately, then the ash and pulverized rock goes into the atmosphere, and then circles the globe. It takes 3 days to reach Chicago and 5 to reach NY. It would initiate a nuclear winter and two thirds of the country will be be un-inhabitable.

There is also a big asteroid coming by March 7th, which can cause big quakes and there are concerns for the West Coast. The 7.5 quake in Mexico is due to movement of the plates.

Iceland has also had quakes and volcanic movement, the last time it had a big volcanic eruption was 2010 when the ash went up 30,000 feet in the air and it impacted air traffic with planes not being able to fly near there.

There have been concerns for quakes in Los Angeles and San Francisco in the short term due to the pressure with the plate movements.

For additional info and pre-quake warnings you should already know where to go, if not
go to Dutchsinse's You tube channel and he explains what is going on and where the next earthquake hits are likely to be.




gina - 2/18/2018 at 07:13 PM

Yelloswstone has been having quakes in the mid 2 range and today had a 3. The activity is in the Caldera, the last time it blew was 640,000 years ago.

There has been activity in the Island Park Caldera in Idaho. This is a Supervolcano. The last time it blew was more than 2 million years ago.

The Thursday storm.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/winter-storm-riley-kills-7-knocks-out-pow er-2-million

While that one is overwith there are more storms. A short more normal one Wednesday, and then next weekend (Sunday and later) perhaps a 'historic' one for the recordbooks type of storm.

WEDNESDAY's Storm 3-7-18

Ryan's advice for the northeast

"New England should stock up on essentials (toilet paper, bread, booze) as this storm Wed-Thurs nudges a little closer to the coast -- and it could more intense e.g. a bigger "bomb cyclone" than currently in 4-day model progs."

Lots of folks getting effected by these storms.

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/northeast-gearing-another-noreaster-133903159--ab c-news-topstories.html

The one coming up will leave some areas with 12+ snow, others 5-10, 3-7, these meteorologists are starting to sound like bookies giving odds on the horse races. Anyways, from what I have seen the after it punishes NY metro area (tomorrow), the brunt of it will be over Piacere's area at 6 AM on Thursday at 990 mb. The gusts are 30-50 mph.

The worst storm will be next week, 3/12 - 3/13 or it may come sooner. That one will be verrrrry bad for all concerned. There is another one 3/16 and then spring seems to come, HOWEVER there is one storm left 4/1 (no foolin' - you're already on the whippin' post).

Stay safe y'all.

It's going to be baaad for Providence and Boston, Bernie still says 1-2 feet, plus the storm started out at 1,000 ob it will go down to 968, you know what that means. It is going to be off Montauk around 1 pm and heading up north then, so have a nice breakfast and get ready. Maybe we should crank up Stormy Monday when we go out to shovel because it surely is true, "they call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad....."

This is noontime tomorrow. The yellow and the read are the 2+ inches per hour stuff. The dark blue is heavy snow.

The NWS had a discussion today.

https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=OKX&issuedby=OKX&prod uct=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1


REMARKS:

What bothers me is the military say they will be able to "own" and control the weather by 2020, so why do they allow these things?

It is illegal to disrupt interstate commerce, yet these storms are doing that. Factions of the govt. claim they can control the weather so they should be held accountable for not stopping that from happening. Why aren't they stopping it?


They DO KNOW how to manipulate it and change it. They have been doing it for years. They have done it even back in the Viet Nam war days and in the Iraq war. They used weather as a weapon, are they now using it against Americans right here? IF NOT, then why don't they stop these storms with hurricane force wind gusts. Every week the northeast is being punished and nobody says anything. Except of course people like me.

The consensus is in for the northeast 6-9, 5-10" tomorrow. The thing is this is NOT the last of these type of storms. The next one is Friday into Saturday. After that, yes there is more. How much longer? Probably the second week of April it MAY stop.

The storm approaching is the one that gave Alabama those 70 mph winds and baseball size hail. It has bands in it that can lay down 2-4 inches of snow PER HOUR. Blizzard conditions could develop. The main part arrives in metro NY in the afternoon, do not get deceived when it is not here in the morning. IT IS COMING.

Don't put your shovels away yet. Starting Easter weekend and that whole week, potentially more to come. Yes that's right, potentially 2-3 noreasters and a blizzard at the end of THAT week. And, the pattern can continue further into the month.

Enjoy whatever good days there are, but be ready.

I don't want to consider hurricane season yet, but there are 3 BAD cyclones off Australia even now, one is a Cat 4, one is a Cat 5. They will head into the Pacific Ocean. California is already getting too much rain.

Next big storm can be next week, Wednesday. Big as in blizzard like conditions and a lot of snow. There can be 2 more after that, the 16 thru the 18th (best guesstimate at this time for the date is the 16th) and then Friday the 20th.

After that we move into the other season.

Analysts believe there will be 12-15 tropical storms for 2018
6-8 hurricanes
with 3-5 of those being MAJOR hurricanes (Major means cat 3 and above)
and 3-4 of those making landfall in the US.

People wonder why the weather is this way, the axis of the earth is involved and also the magnetic poles which are no longer where they were in the past. The magnetic north pole currently is off of England. There is a lot of atmospheric science involved, but just know things will NOT go back to the way they used to be.

So stay safe and do not put your shovels away till after April 20th this year.

One person, I probably should not say who, noticed that the pattern of the volcanoes going off there matches a pattern that occurred in that location just before the HUGE quake off Japan, that caused the tsunami. He further insinuated that it may have been caused by manmade sources, for the purpose of depopulation. When the ring of fire collapses, Japan goes under the ocean in Tokyo alone you have 7 million people they will be no more.

Whether it is God of mankind covertly doing it, people are going to die. God said there would be disasters before he comes back, so he is on board with it happening, some of it he will do, other events the people who want to control the weather etc. will be doing it.

"Tourists banned as HAWAII volcano Mount Kilauea is close to an explosive eruption according to experts after another fissure opened up on the Big Island spewing hot lava and toxic gas."

We don't have volcanoes/earthquakes/eruptions/tsunamis etc here on the mainland (except for SF 1906, also Mt. St. Helen 1980)

But our luck may be running out -- a headline on this same internet page says "Yellowstone Supervolcano: Tectonic Shift Detected"

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

These storms have a history of producing wind damage. Winds gusted
to 64 mph in Scranton PA at 317 PM. SEEK SHELTER NOW inside a sturdy
structure and stay away from windows!

Intense thunderstorm lines can produce brief tornadoes and widespread
significant wind damage. Although a tornado is not immediately
likely, it is best to move to an interior room on the lowest floor of
a building. These storms may cause serious injury and significant
property damage.

Continuous cloud to ground lightning is also occurring with these
storms. Move indoors immediately. Lightning is one of nature`s
leading killers. Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close
enough to be struck by lightning.

TORNADO...POSSIBLE
HAIL...1.00IN
WIND...70MPH

REMARKS: Hurricane season needs to be gentler than this!

94 dead, more than 2,000 homes "obliterated" (description from film archive)

Tornadoes rarely happen in NE, but in the oppressive heat on that day, a crushing juggernaut that formed over the Quabbin Reservoir in western Mass developed into a very angry twister
& slashed a 42 mile path of terror thru the towns of Petersham, Worcester & Southboro -- a max-strength mega-tornado that flattened everything in & out of its path, bolted down or not

We keep getting "torrential rainfall" 2-3 inches per hour level rain, with lightning, and 40-60 mile per hour winds. The heat and humidity has also come along with it, we get 3 days with 90+ temps and humidity then a couple of days with mid 80's. It's just weather terror at atmospheric abuse. None of this can be a natural phenomenon!


gina - 8/13/2018 at 06:39 PM

gina - 8/30/2018 at 12:23 AM

I've been hesitant to bring it up, though I heard about his even before now. There was one storm that could hav become a hurricane and come up here 8-30-18, but it went into Houston as just a storm. Four excellent meteorologists have been mentioning that the tropics will heat up and the sub Saharan dust layer decreases in September October, which means storms coming off of Africa can become tropical depressions, storms, then hurricanes and then cause damage to the US mainland. One scenario (the European model) shows this one that Jeff mentions as developing into a hurricane and then heading to New Orleans or the Gulf Coast OR crossing Northern Florida and heading northbound. When? About 10 days out for northern impact IF that occurs. Sooner for the Gulf if development happens.

https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2018-08-29-tropical-development-p ossible-gulf-of-mexico-florida-bahamas?cm_ven=wu_videos

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2018/08/29/hurricane-season-comi ng-life-atlantic/1132669002/

"One storm could spin up in the Caribbean over the next few days and affect Florida over the Labor Day weekend. Looking further ahead, "there is the potential for two or three tropical features spinning over the Atlantic by the second weekend in September," AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said."

GET READY FOLKS.

gina - 9/1/2018 at 07:15 PM

update 9-1-18

There is a storm that will go in the Gulf - Models indicate New Orleans or Houston. Impact 9/5/18

The European model says New Orleans at 1001 mb.
The CMC thinks Houston at 997 mb


HURRICANE FLORENCE - models say it should stay in the ocean, but I have seen some very troubling things such as 3-4 eyewall replacement cycles.

There are also more storms after Florence, their names, Norman, Miriam, 17E.

https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=ecmwf®ion=atl&pk g=z500_mslp&runtime=2018090112&fh=120

Florence at 1009 mb - this is two weeks out from the NY area.














[Edited on 9/1/2018 by gina]


Stephen - 9/4/2018 at 05:02 PM

Yep, Gordon is barreling toward the gulf coast & expected to make landfall tonight -- w/Florence not far behind, although that's more out to sea


gina - 9/6/2018 at 12:42 AM

Empathy goes out to those along the coastline dealing with Gordon and it's rain but we need to talk about Florence.

It is now a Cat 3. As the professional meteorologists have explained there is a lot of variables in the path of this storm; the models have been divergent also. One model has it going inland at Charleston, SC on 9-13-18 (one of the European runs), other models have it staying off shore but near the coastline and coming up near the Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia). If it does not hit any land on 9-13, it will probably become a Cat 4.

Have to get more info as it gets closer to possible impacts, but this is a powerful storm, and there are 3 more after this.

Just for your reference:

Millibars do translate into the strength of the storm. The lower the millbars, the worse the storm is.

Greater than 980 milibars means a Cat 1 (74-95 miles per hour)

979-965 mililbars means a Cat 2 (96-110 miles per hour)

964-945 millibars means a Cat 3 (111-130 miles per hour)

944-920 mililbars means a Cat 4 (131-155 miles per hour)

Less than 920 millibars means a cat 5 (156 miles per hour)

Historically, Charlie was at 941 millibars
Andrew was at 922 millibars
Katrina was at 920 millibars

gina - 9/8/2018 at 12:23 AM

Florence - some of the meteorologists I follow have been getting inundated by people concerned about Florence and rightly so. Florence is a big bad storm. Predicted to regain status of Cat 3 possibly going to Cat 4 by Tuesday this thing is powerful. The hurricane hunters were going to go into it on Tuesday, but they have moved that up and are going in tomorrow by the evening. We should have a better guage on the storm after that.

There are many variables with the storm which is why no one is predicting a specific place of impact, they include steering currents, 500 mb anomalies which cause the storm to influence and create it's own environment per Henry. Then you have the trough to the north, the ridge to the west, AND factor in the influence from the remnants of Gordon. There is a lot to consider.

Nevertheless, the runs this morning had first impact as the Delmarva as a Cat 3 on Friday, then NYC/LI Saturday to Monday as a Cat 1. The later models today had points from Wilimington, NC to Norfolk and Chesapeake Bay as first strike points as a Cat 3.

Jeff has pointed out that the storm may be a Cat 4 by Tuesday. He shares the 3 scenarios that are being looked at by those who know meteorology.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Florence-Increasing-Danger-US-East-Coast


What I know is that 2 days before impact is too late for anyone to try to leave an area expected to be hit because the outer rain bands are already there with wind gusts. If you (and that includes me) are in an area expected to be badly hit, you better get out of there 3 days before to be on the safe side. Otherwise, you just have to deal with it. Since there is no way to evacuate the more than 11 million people in NYC and Long Island that is why they never do. Use you own good sense if necessary.

NOW, IT IS POSSIBLE IT DOES NOT HIT LAND. Henry said it could do a loop and come near the coastline and then just go out to sea. So, what does this all mean? Wait till Monday, we should know then. When info. comes out from the Hurricane Hunters, they may have a better idea.


gina - 9/9/2018 at 08:21 PM

Florence -

Carolina in the Crosshairs - a strong Cat 3 or Cat 4 is expected.

We will know more tomorrow, but for now what some of the model predictions are saying are quite bleek.

"epic level storm surge 48 foot waves" for the coastline.
Gusts of over 100 miles per hour
33.5 inches of rain....

"All indications are that Florence will be an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane while it moves over
the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States. The Ohio Valley ridge is concerning
because Florence could stop moving pretty quickly around day 5, potentially leading to a serious heavy rain episode and inland flood hazard. "

gina - 9/10/2018 at 07:53 PM

Bernie echoes what others have said.

https://twitter.com/AccuRayno

Others have zeroed in on the impact point at being Wilmington. But since the storm will sit over land as it goes on, 48 hours of rain will cause major flooding as Bernie has pointed out.


Henry tells it like it is.

" I like a landfall near Wilmington, NC but as a slowing storm and stalling storm which means big problems. If you remain on the coast when Florence hits, you can be killed. Think of this storm as a huge EF-3 tornado that will buzz down trees and do extensive damage to property. Then we have the flooding which will be measured in feet. So the only thing I can say is prepare now."

https://weathermadness.com/2018/09/10/live-blog-major-hurricane-florence-tr ack-and-impacts/


The storm is a solid CAT 4. 147 miles per hour at landfall!

Latest Data:
Hurricane Florence Tropical Cyclone Update
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL062018
1200 PM AST Mon Sep 10 2018

...FLORENCE BECOMES A CATEGORY FOUR HURRICANE...

Data from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Florence
has continued to rapidly stregthen and has maximum sustained winds
near 130 mph (195 km/h). The latest minimum central pressure based
on data from the aircraft is 946 mb (27.93 inches).


Jeff predicts a 15-20 FOOT STORM SURGE.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Expect-Storm-Surge-15-20-Feet-Landfalling -Category-4-Storm-Carolinas

"Depending on where its center makes landfall, a mid-strength Category 4 hurricane with 145 mph winds hitting at high tide, in a worst-case scenario, can generate a storm tide in excess of twenty feet above ground level along the entire coast of South Carolina, and along most of the coast of southern North Carolina from the South Carolina border to Morehead City. Many locations could see a higher surge, of up to 27 feet. And a Category 5 storm is much worse: a theoretical peak storm tide of 33 feet is predicted by the SLOSH model for the Intracoastal Waterway north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. These peak surges occur over a 10 - 40 mile stretch of coast where the right eyewall makes landfall. If Florence were to make landfall near Wilmington, NC, for example, the highest surges would extend northeastward to around Jacksonville, NC."


If you are in NC and plan to get out be aware that the cone of the winds extends to Atlanta and Knoxville, you would need to be west of these areas to not have to deal with tropical storm force winds, and in the north, the cone goes to Cincinnati/Columbus Ohio and Pittsburgh,PA, so if you are in an area subject to flooding in PA, you might want to consider going west of these areas.

it's a Category 2 hurricane -- also, TV says, a category 5 flood threat -- hadn't heard that term b4 -- for all the damage predicted to be inflicted, Category 2 doesn't seem like much

already however, people are out of power (weatherchannel.com) -- not another Katrina but looks serious, & like Katrina, concerns about other blows coming in behind this one

I wish they'd just call it one thing & not complicate/confuse things -- looks like a Category IV to me

Gordon turned out to be less serious on the Gulf Coast than it was last week -- hopefully landfall will quickly take the legs outta this one


gina - 9/17/2018 at 10:57 PM

Thankfully it went down to a 1 or the damage would have been worse. 500,000 people still have no eletricity, that's pretty bad.

I don't even know if some folks can handle this, but two weeks out [from now] the GFS has another hurricane, Atlantic based coming up the coast along the same areas that were hit this time. The name, Kirk. No the main stream folks don't have anything on it yet, but we'll have to keep a lookout.

Live blog by Dr. Maue (he's a Ph.D, a Doctorate in Meteorology)

JEFF MASTERS from Wunderground:

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Tropical-Storm-Michael-Headed-Gulf-Mexico ?cm_ven=hp-slot-1
Potential for 5-9 FOOT Storm surge for parts along the Florida Panhandle.

"Sunday’s 0Z and 12Z UKMET tracks were similar to the Euro’s. The 12Z UKMET and Euro model runs were concerning, as they showed the potential for Michael to emerge over water off the coast of South Carolina. Michael thus has the potential to affect a large portion of the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina as a strong tropical storm or Catgeory 1 hurricane."
CAROLINA BEWARE.

Remarks: If I lived along the Panhandle I would head on outta there for a couple of days. I'm not very happy about the remnant rain coming up the Delmarva either.

Prayers for all those affected in the path of Michael.

The storm ripped houses off their foundations and just levelled them. Everybody who sees the damage and lives along any coastline knows it could happen to them with the next storm.

Those who were effected probably cannot go back there to live. Are the insurance companies going to pay to rebuild all those houses? They didn't do it when Sandy hit up here, the state offerred to buy the land and pay people off in the hardest hit areas. The insurance companies were not going to pay out on a hit like that.

Yes we should pray for those people. Many of them now have nothing left but themselves and whatever they took with them when they evacuated. That is huge to deal with.

Tuesday October 23rd some of the models have a storm off Jacksonville, Florida, meaning it would be an east coast storm that could come up the coast. [more later as more is known].

As to everything else, Joe has some good info.

They're forecasting mid-80s or warmer this wknd in LA, a huge change from chilly Boston --
Yeah they'll have 56,000 of their closest friends there -- but the Chavez Ravine climate will be a benefit to both teams, so even on that score -- envision taking 2 of 3 & title out there, returning to a heroes' welcome at Logan

What's happened in Calif is ghastly -- no different from a nightmare, in both wildfires

Winter has come early to northern NE, to say the least -- 6" of snow followed by single digits earlier this week, & same thing w/more snow predicted tonight & freezing cold returns Sunday

Hi gina. Got about a half a foot then rain. Just a big pile of slush now


gina - 11/20/2018 at 10:40 PM

Get your long johns on Piacere it's going to get verrrry cold.

FIRST COLD FRONT DEPARTS

As an area of low pressure departs from New England this evening, a cold front will quickly follow behind the low-pressure system with a few widely scattered rain and snow showers. Winds will remain from the west-northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Temperatures will fall through the 40's and into the 30's this evening.


ARCTIC BLAST AND SNOW SQUALLS TOMORROW WEDNESDAY

An arctic cold front will follow tomorrow with isolated to widely scattered snow showers. Along the cold front passage, a line of intense snow showers, basically like thunderstorms, will march through the region in the afternoon and evening. These snow squalls can reduce visibility to less than a mile with little notice and produce accumulating snowfall on surfaces. Winds will be from the west at 10 to 20 mph with gusts over 30 mph. Temperatures tomorrow will range from the mid to upper 20's over the interior and upper 20's to lower 30's along the coast for lows and lower to mid 40's for highs ahead of the cold front. Temperatures tomorrow afternoon and evening will quickly fall into the 30's and 20's behind the cold front passage with wind chill temperatures in the 10's and 20's.


FROZEN TURKEY

Arctic high pressure will be in control on Thanksgiving with brutally cold weather conditions. Scattered clouds to clear skies will be in place with winds from the west at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will range from the lower to mid 10's over the interior and upper 10's to lower 20's along the coast for lows and lower to mid 20's over the interior and mid to upper 20's along the coast for highs.


SLOW WARM-UP

High pressure will slowly exit on Friday and Saturday with scattered cloud cover. Temperatures on Friday will range from the 0's to lower 10's over the interior and mid to upper 10's along the coast for lows and upper 20's to lower 30's for highs. Temperatures on Saturday will range from the lower to mid 20's for lows and mid to upper 40's over the interior and lower to mid 50's along the coast for highs.


RAINSTORMS EXPECTED

An area of low pressure will produce periods of rain on Sunday. Another area of low pressure will produce periods of showers on Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures on Sunday will range from the upper 30's to lower 40's over the interior and lower to mid 40's along the coast for lows and upper 40's to mid 50's for highs. Temperatures on Monday will range from the upper 20's to lower 30's for lows and mid 40's to lower 50's for highs. Temperatures on Tuesday will range from the mid to upper 30's for lows and mid to upper 40's for highs.


Remark: Another site has hurricane force winds with that rain Monday into Tuesday. Might be time we all join Jerry in that hot tub in Belize!

The quake that hit Alaska is believed to be able to 1,000 aftershocks. There was another one last night in Turin, Italy that the US did not report. The Italian seismic agency did. Since that is legitamite Europe is facing quakes .


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7Apmm5hoqQ

Remarks: the 6.2 quakes sometimes are created (whether by deliberate actions wanting to create them or by happenstance. The fracking causes quakes but the officials will not admit it because there is BIG money involved.


gina - 12/3/2018 at 11:52 PM

There are some media outlets predicting a big snowstorm for the northeast. Other meteorologists do not think so.

https://www.meteorologistjoecioffi.com/index.php/2018/12/03/weather-models- pointing-to-southern-snow/

Just keep a look out no need to panic yet. Here are the two scenarios, but 4 our of 4 mets that I read do NOT think metro NY is gonna get it. But this is Monday, so we need to just keep a look out and see how the factors come together to indicate where it will be the worst. At this point 4 our of 4 mets think scenario #2 is the more likely one.

I thought it was a clear thing that this storm would just stay south and not bother anybody up here in the north. So far the consensus is that it will stay south of metro NY, well Monday into Tuesday may become interesting.

First things first.

Joe's map for the Saturday Sunday piece of the storm. That 6-12 is inches of snow, be aware if you are in any of those areas. Texas, Arkansas and those places will get a lot of rain, anything North of I-40 will be subject to flooding.
https://www.meteorologistjoecioffi.com/index.php/2018/12/05/snowstorm-weste rn-carolinas-sw-virginia-heading-east-offshore/



Henry thinks Virginia will get some big snow. 12-17 inches.

Bernie is watching everything like everybody else. He explained that Monday night into Tuesday after the original storm goes thru, the trough becomes negative. That trough is actually going to be created by aspects of the storm and it is THAT part of the energy that can bring int he Atlantic moisture and steer the storm up the coastline towards the Delmarva and points northward. CAN, it is not definite yet.

Watch his video from yesterday 12-14-18 he explains all this.

Best advice is be prepared for whatever is coming your way, get some snacks and things you like and if the weather is really bad where you are try to stay inside, or have sand/kitty litter and a shovel with you if you venture out and get stuck someplace.

HENRY:
My Big Daddy Snow Index will be a 4 for this storm basically for the heavy snow, not much for the wind and drifting. The snow will start as rain but change over to heavy snow tonight and last well into Sunday with rates of 1-3 inches per hour.
