    The weather strikes again, who would have thought it?

    A while back XMETMAN was bemoaning (thanks to warming) that Arctic air arriving on a Northerly wind was no longer cold enough to produce snow in the UK. I thought to myself at the time that that was strange for an ex-professional, as the event referenced was only a glancing/brief slice of Arctic air. Of course a deep Arctic air flow is still amply cold enough to produce snow – but it has always typically happened when the flow becomes established for several days, and bands of showers or even an Arctic low form and sweep south introducing often progressively colder air.

    Over the last few winters I have noticed that we have missed out on the really brutal stuff that has hit Scandinavia and Europe, and currently spread across Russia into China. It just depends which part of the meridional jetstream you get and we have been getting more southly than northerly flow. I suppose it is a good thing especially this winter with 600 million people in debt to their energy suppliers and not able to go anywhere to get warm or huddle together to share heating bills. But it does prevent our morons in charge from seeing the reality of a cooling planet.

    Is solar minimum playing its tricks on us?

    Although summer officially started in Antarctica one week ago, the southern stratosphere still seems to think it’s winter.

    Better send some to the lab for analysis. If that’s not snow, who knows what it could be!

      It is white “warm”. If you think it is cold and not warm it is because you are a heretic, a non believer and a denier!

        Quite and worse still is that water is mutating like a virus and is learning to freeze at a higher temperature, hence warmer snow. Okay that is daft, but no more daft than some of the remarks of the parliamentarians, BBC etc. are making.

        Daft ? They are already onto that one, as some have surmised.
        “The findings, published today in Nature, confirm the existence of “superionic ice,” a new phase of water with bizarre properties. Unlike the familiar ice found in your freezer or at the north pole, superionic ice is black and hot.”

    My son and his daughter made a snowman in Warrington yesterday, so she knows all about snow.

    And they say it never rains in Southern California…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gmq4WIjQxp0

    But now it’s snowing.

    “For some residents of Southern California, the gift of a first snowfall came on Monday as a large storm rolled in from the coast.

    “We’re what, three hours from L.A.? Two hours from L.A.? This is crazy, do you see how big these are?” Long Beach Resident Suzy Caruana told ABC 7, gesturing to the large snowflakes falling around her.

    “I’m headed up to Sacramento to visit my daughter and grandchildren, and I got this,” Sophia Glover, a San Diego resident, told the news station, holding her palm up and out her parked car’s window to catch the snow. “I’m enjoying it. I’ve never seen snow.”

    The storm would later push eastward, spilling into Arizona where a drone captured video of snowfall across Flagstaff. Maria Mendez, a resident of Yuma, Arizona, also caught her first glimpse of snow in person.

    “Oh my god, I’ve never seen snow, this is my first time seeing snow, or touching it because in Arizona there’s nothing but desert,” she said.”
