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).

Quoting Bordonaro:
Officially, at the DFW Int'l AP, TX had 0.1" of snow today and temperatures average -15F from normal!

And possibly MORE SNOW on Su/Mo 2/28-3/1 as the 850MB temps drop below freezing and a Polar Low sneeks across North Central TX.

Somebody, please, send us at least one 70F day, soon!!


It has been a historic winter season for you over there Bordonaro. Snowfall records continue on for you thanks to the El Nino. The very potent shortwave Mon-Tuesday of next week definitely has the potential to give significant snowfall totals throughout much of TX. You maybe getting weary of it Bordonaro, but you would probably admit that seeing so much snowfall over there this season has been mostly a delight. Except for maybe the big 1 feet of snow you got a copule of weeks ago....

From the NWS Mobile forecast discussion:

.LONG TERM...(FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY)...THE SOUTHERN STREAM REMAINS
ACTIVE DURING THE EXTENDED WITH TWO SYSTEMS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS
THE AREA. THE FIRST SYSTEM IS EXPECTED FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY.
THE GLOBAL MODELS NO LONGER AGREE ON THE TIMING OF THIS SYSTEM AS
THE GFS IS NOW FAST AND FARTHER TO THE NORTH WITH THE SFC LOW.
ANOTHER...PERHAPS STRONGER SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS THE
REGION EARLY NEXT WEEK. BOTH SYSTEMS HAVE THE POTENTIAL BRING SOME
HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL GULF COAST. PARTIAL
THICKNESS VALUES ALSO INDICATE MIXED PRECIP IS POSSIBLE WITH BOTH
SYSTEMS ESPECIALLY ACROSS NORTHERN SECTIONS OF THE AREA. THE EXACT
TRACK OF THE SFC LOW WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE JUST WHERE THE
RAIN/SNOW LINE WILL BE AND WILL HAVE TO BE CLOSELY MONITORED IN
LATER FORECASTS.


We'll see if this thing takes a more southern track this time and brings the rain/snow line closer to the coast. Would be nice. :-)

DEEP UPPER LEVEL TROF/CUT OFF LOW THAT WILL TRACK INTO THE SERN U.S.
AND PROVIDE FOR INTENSE LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPMENT ACRS THE NERN GOMEX
THAT COULD TRACK RIGHT ACRS THE FORECAST AREA. VERY WINDY WITH
WIDESPREAD RAIN AND POSSIBLE SVR WX EVENT. WITH EVENT A WEEK AWAY

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans la
338 PM CST Tuesday Feb 23 2010





Short term...
not much has changed in the thinking of tonight/S winter weather
event. Water vapor imagery shows shortwave diving southeastward
across West Texas. Most of the appreciable rain out ahead of this
system remains in north central la and eastern Texas. Echoes appear
on the lix radar just northwest of btr but dry air in the middle levels are
likely keeping anything from reaching the ground just yet.
Temperatures should fall fairly rapidly after sunset this evening.
Model soundings indicate wet bulb cooling to be most significant
after 00z as rain moving in saturates the column. Like most snow
forecasts for south Louisiana...the toughest part is timing the
change over to snow...locations...and duration of frozen precipitation. As
of now...southwestern MS will be the first to experience a mix of rain and
snow possibly just before midnight. Continued precipitation will cool
the column enough for a full change over to snow along southwestern MS and
the adjacent la parishes...possibly dipping south into the northern
Baton Rouge metropolitan area. At the same time...a line of mix snow/rain
is prognosticated to develop from southern btr metropolitan northeastward into
extreme northern St. Tammany Parish and into northern Pearl River
County MS. The precipitation should drop off from west to east fairly
rapidly after sunrise and be completely done by the afternoon. With
most frozen precipitation falling along the backside of the precipitation
shield...snowfall amounts are expected to be quite low with less
than one half inch as the maximum across the County Warning Area. The combination of
little to no accumulation and surface temperatures hovering just above freezing
resulted in the decision to only go out with a Special Weather
Statement as opposed to a wntr weather advisory. Impacts are just expected
to be so minimal that it didn/T seem appropriate. Later
shifts...especially tonight...will have to monitor the situation
closely in case the forecast is too conservative and then an
advisory could be issued.


&&


Long term...
once today/S system pulls through...the area will remain under nwrly
flow which will keeps temperatures below normal. One concern is lows Wednesday
night. Strong cold air advection and the surface ridge moving in
quickly will set up for good radiational cooling. Could end up with
middle 20s in southwestern MS and upper 20s along the I-12 corridor. A fast
moving short wave is prognosticated to swing through the area late this
week. Still have some discontinuity on timing and surface low location
resulting in a lower than normal forecast confidence. At this
time...precipitation amounts look to be less than half an inch. To be
honest...the bigger concern comes in early next week. Models suggest
a fairly deep upper trough digging to the Gulf south with a surface
low developing and tracking across the northern Gulf of Mexico. If
this scenario were to actually play out...the Gulf south will be
looking at yet another winter weather event.


Winter season just doesn/T seem to want to go away.

Just another flood for the Turkish city of Edirne

The center of the northwestern city of Edirne is untouched by recent flooding. Locals have grown used to the seasonal disasters, but the farmers and villagers affected are increasingly less forgiving of the government for the lack of a permanent solution. Others from the city center watch the flooding on TV and then visit the damaged to view the overflowed rivers

The two rivers started to overflow Feb. 13, and the water blocked nearby traffic for two days. The flood caused financial losses, but there was no loss of life because authorities had warned the locals two days ahead of the flood.

On a small hill in the Sarayiçi neighborhood, locals gathered to watch a blocked bridge on the Tunca River and historical places such as the Kırkpınar Oil Wrestling Arena, a Balkan War graveyard, the Tower of Justice and a football pitch, all go under water.

Dozens feared lost in landslides
Severe landslides in Indonesia have killed at least five people and dozens more are buried in a tea plantation in a district south of the capital Jakarta, reports say.

The landslide occurred after heavy rainfall struck the flood-ravaged Bandung district, on the main island of Java, south of Jakarta.

Weather service: Big spring floods likely in Midwest
Communities along rivers in the Midwest are bracing for what could be a whopper of a spring flood season, with the National Weather Service warning of a "high probability" of significant flooding along parts of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and their tributaries.

"The ground really hasn't recovered because it got cold and what would have been running off never had the chance," weather service hydrologist Mark Fuchs said Monday. "Once it warms up we're going to have a fairly high risk of flooding."
http://www.usatoday.com/weather/floods/2010-02-23-midwest-spring-flooding_N.htm

Moorhead to start filling sandbags for potential flood
Moorhead will start filling sandbags on Monday. The goal is to fill 300-thousand sandbags ahead of a potential flood.

The sandbag-filling site will be on the north side of town... And the city is hoping for volunteers to help fill the bags. Moorhead is also spending $34-thousand dollars to bring in a spider machine that can fill 5-thousand sandbags an hour.

The machine won't be here for another couple of weeks, so until then, the bags will be filled by hand. If you'd like to help, you can to go the public works facility in the 700 block of 15th Avenue North Monday through Saturday from 7 a-m to 6 p-m.

Climate sensitivity is around 3ºC for a doubling of CO2

The climate sensitivity classically defined is the response of global mean temperature to a forcing once all the ‘fast feedbacks’ have occurred (atmospheric temperatures, clouds, water vapour, winds, snow, sea ice etc.), but before any of the ’slow’ feedbacks have kicked in (ice sheets, vegetation, carbon cycle etc.). Given that it doesn’t matter much which forcing is changing, sensitivity can be assessed from any particular period in the past where the changes in forcing are known and the corresponding equilibrium temperature change can be estimated. As we have discussed previously, the last glacial period is a good example of a large forcing (~7 W/m2 from ice sheets, greenhouse gases, dust and vegetation) giving a large temperature response (~5 ºC) and implying a sensitivity of about 3ºC (with substantial error bars). More formally, you can combine this estimate with others taken from the 20th century, the response to volcanoes, the last millennium, remote sensing etc. to get pretty good constraints on what the number should be. This was done by Annan and Hargreaves (2006), and they come up with, you guessed it, 3ºC.

Converting the estimate for doubled CO2 to a more useful factor gives ~0.75 ºC/(W/m2).

Radiative forcing x climate sensitivity is a significant number

Current forcings (1.6 W/m2) x 0.75 ºC/(W/m2) imply 1.2 ºC that would occur at equilibrium. Because the oceans take time to warm up, we are not yet there (so far we have experienced 0.7ºC), and so the remaining 0.5 ºC is ‘in the pipeline’. We can estimate this independently using the changes in ocean heat content over the last decade or so (roughly equal to the current radiative imbalance) of ~0.7 W/m2, implying that this ‘unrealised’ forcing will lead to another 0.7×0.75 ºC – i.e. 0.5 ºC.

Additional forcings in business-as-usual scenarios range roughly from 3 to 7 W/m2 and therefore additional warming (at equilibrium) would be 2 to 5 ºC. That is significant.

Quoting unf97:
Ike, the models have been intializing this GOM Low for the last several days actually dating back to last Friday. They seem to be in basic agreement that this system could spin up to be a very potent system. I am inclined to think that this system could be stronger than the February 11-12 Deep South storm system. The dynamics certainly look impressive looking at the model runs of GFS and ECMWF, and the upper level shortwave depicted in the runs next week swinging in from the Southwest looks as impressive as I have seen in this El Nino pattern.


Waiting on the 18Z GFS. Looks like maybe after next weeks GOM low and cold snap that follow it, finally some spring like weather moves in. Guessing around the 7-10th of March? Subject to change though.


Quoting CycloneOz:


On the front page of the Pensacola News Journal (issue date: March 3, 1983) a dogger clad CycloneOz was pictured laying out on a dock at Bayview Park, getting the first sun tan of the season.

March 3rd - 8 days away...and a winter storm is going to be digging into the Gulf Coast.

May I just say right here and now that GW is BS!
