The notorious Russian winter, bane of the armies of Napoleon and Hitler, has been in classic form during the winter of 2010 . Brutal cold has been the rule this winter in the European portion of Russia, and at 9am local time on Friday, February 19, the town of Hoseda-Hard, Russia hit a remarkable -70°F (-56.4°C)--the second coldest temperature ever measured in Europe. Hoseda-Hard is located in extreme northeastern Europe, 90 miles (145 km) south of the Arctic Ocean and about 150 miles (240 km) west of the Ural Mountains and the boundary of Asia. The town lies in a shallow river valley (elevation 84 meters) where cold air tends to pool. The surrounding region is known as Europe's "Pole of Cold". The coldest temperature ever recorded in Europe was an extraordinary -72.6°F (-58.1°C) in the Pole of Cold's Ust'Schugor (64.15°N 57.45°) on December 31, 1978. The nearby city of Pechora, the largest city in the region (population: 50,000), is also well-known for its extreme temperatures. Pechora boasts Europe's third coldest temperature, a -68.8°F (-56.0°C) reading observed on February 9, 1946. It is likely that Hoseda-Hard got a degree or two colder than the remarkable -70°F measured on Friday, since the station only reported temperatures once every three hours. The high temperature Friday in Hoseda-Hard was a not-so-balmy -49°F (-45°C)!

Exceptional February heat in Africa
I credit weather historian and extreme weather expert Chris Burt, author of Extreme Weather, for pointing out the incredible cold in Russia on Friday. Chris also noted that on Saturday, February 20, the temperature in Birni-N'Konni, Niger hit 112°F (44.3°C). This is just 3°F (1.7°C) below the warmest temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere in February--the 115°F reading from Abeche, Chad (date unknown).

Since you Texans are so close with the SNOW GOD lately, can you put a request for central FLORIDA to get some white stuff before the heat returns. Thank you

We could get a severe thunderstorm warning for Volusia and Flagler county at any moment as very intense storms with frequent lightning are moving east out of Marion county.


Looks to be loosing some convection in the overall pattern. But what a big storm with plenty of strong updrafts building an impressive hail core.

Darn it, once again them Texans gonna hog all the Gulf Coast snow this season... ;)

NOLA KLIX hasn't been mentioning any frz precip for the SE LA area yet, despite model upper profiles indicating a brief changeover chance by Wed morn, if moisture lags long enough and CAA advances stronger / quicker.. a big if there, as failed the last time (and often does here)...

Cooler air slowly filtering toward us, but our SE LA temps today have shot up between systems - Holy cow, break out the flip-flops and shorts, as we reached 72F at Houma! The first - and only - daily reading into the 70's this February here (falling back into 60's now)... Before this brief warm-up, just recently completed a consecutive 14 day stretch recording a low in the 30's every morning (at the official HUML1 station, not the KHUM airport), which is likely a record... following the 13 consecutive day period in Jan of lows in 20's / 30's... Notable as my Houma-Terrebonne location is quite coastal, 50 miles SW of NOLA at 29.6N / 90.7W, surrounded by the moderating maritime influence... a spit of mud stuck halfway out into the Gulf!

Nonetheless, those who want (and get) this latest Southern snow - Enjoy!

U.F.O. PUNCHES HOLE in MEXICAN SKY!!!!


UFO dont think so, but a good sized meteor would do that to the clouds especially if it exploded right before impact and that altitude looks about right for when they usually explode from the atmospheric pressure.

If you look at the cloud pattern you'll see the circle were the pressure difference happened from the explosion and see in the middle of the circle how the clouds were pulled down from the meteor parts still moving towards the ground.

It just happened to be clouds were the meteor entered the atmosphere.

Now a good amount of snow for me means like 4 inches haha

Oh. Well in that case, good luck with that. Four inches is actually on the high side estimate of what we might get here at Texas A&M.

I'm hoping I get some snow. They say the woodlands can get a good amount I'm am literally 3 miles south of that so I'm hoping we can get some tomorrow too.

It seems like the NWS might agree with you! Hopefully this is somewhat close to your location:

I suppose one could sit in Lake Superior to escape the heat. But, I'm with Minnemike - I would take the cold any day over 111 degree days. YUK!!!!!! Lowest temp I've been in was minus 33.


Nice to see someone else from this part of the world!

However, I'd have to disagree with you and Minnemike, the highest temp I've experienced is a dry 109°F... and I much prefer that over the -50°F that was the lowest temp I've had to endure.

I'd rather have to come to work in the snow than have it be cold, rainy and windy. All of which we've experienced numerous times down here this winter. Of course, any amount of snow would probably shut us down, LOL.
