November 2010 1st or 2nd warmest on record; ZombieSat saga ends

November 2010 was the globe's second warmest November on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies rated November 2010 the warmest November on record. Both NOAA and NASA rated the year-to-date period, January - November, as the warmest such period on record. Global satellite-measured temperatures for the lowest 8 km of the atmosphere for November were the 5th or 3rd warmest on record, according to Remote Sensing Systems and the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH), respectively. UAH rates the year-to-date period, January-November, as the 2nd warmest such period in the satellite data record, behind 1998. The record or near-record November global warmth is remarkable, given that we are in the midst of a moderate strength La Niña episode in the Eastern Pacific. The large amount of cold water that upwells to the surface during a La Niña typically causes a substantial cool-down in global temperatures, making a monthly temperature record difficult to set. November 2010 is the only "warmest month on record" as rated by NASA to occur during La Niña conditions. The November temperature record is all the more remarkable since we are near the minimum of the 11-year solar sunspot cycle. Global temperatures are cooler by about 0.1°C for the two years following a solar minimum, compared to global temperatures two years after solar maximum. Our current minimum in solar energy makes it much more difficult to set monthly global temperature records.

An average November for the U.S.
For the contiguous U.S., November was near-average in temperature, ranking as the 46th warmest November in the 116-year record, according to the National Climatic Data Center. The year-to-date period, January to November, was the 19th warmest such period on record. No states had a top-ten warmest or coldest November on record. November 2010 precipitation was also near average. Only Montana had a top-ten wettest November on record, and no states had top-ten driest November.

La Niña in the "moderate" category
The equatorial Eastern Pacific Ocean is currently experiencing moderate La Niña conditions. Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) over the tropical Eastern Pacific in the area 5°N - 5°S, 120°W - 170°W, also called the "Niña 3.4 region", were 1.4°C below average as of December 20, according to NOAA. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology put this number at 1.29°C below average (as of December 19.) Moderate La Niña conditions are defined as occurring when this number is 1.0°C - 1.5°C below average. Temperatures colder than 1.5°C below average qualify as strong La Niña conditions. NOAA is maintaining its La Niña advisory, and expects La Niña conditions to last through the coming winter into spring.

Both El Niño and La Niña events have major impacts on regional and global weather patterns. La Niña typically causes warm, dry winters over the southern portion of the U.S., with cooler and wetter than average conditions over the Pacific Northwest. The Ohio and Mississippi Valleys states typically have wetter winters than usual during La Niña events.

November 2010 Arctic sea ice extent 2nd lowest on record
Northern Hemisphere sea ice extent in November 2010 was the 2nd lowest in the 31-year satellite record behind 2006, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. As of December 24, ice extent was the lowest on record for this time of year. Ice volume in November was the lowest on record, according to University of Washington Polar Ice Center.

Major atmospheric pattern shift coming
The unseasonably cold weather over Europe and the Eastern U.S. is due to break between Christmas and New Year's, as the atmosphere undergoes a major shift in its circulation. The very unusual high pressure region over the Arctic is forecast to break down and be replaced by the typical low pressure region we expect to see in winter. After recording some of its coldest temperatures in 17 years this week, the UK may well see record highs on New Year's Eve as a result of the pattern shift. The pattern shift should bring the Eastern U.S. above-normal temperatures during the last few days of 2010, and a major New Year's Eve snowstorm to Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

The ZombieSat saga ends?
Last week, I blogged about ZombieSat, the rogue Galaxy-15 communications satellite that failed during a solar storm. ZombieSat has been spewing noise in the C-band microwave region that has been interfering with broadcasts from satellites in its path, including the key SES-1 satellite that relays most of the weather data wunderground and the National Weather Service uses. Within the next week, ZombieSat will close in on its sister satellite, Galaxy-16, which hosts the Public Radio Satellite Service (PRSS) feeds, among others. A few weeks ago, PRSS warned its customers (who include commercial stations as well as the nation's public broadcasters) that there would be a possibility of disruption to its services on or about December 26. But on Friday December 17, Intelsat announced that ZombieSat had lost its "lock" on Earth, resulting in a loss of power that caused the satellite's main interfering transponders to shut down. So it appears the ZombieSat saga is over, and a whole bunch of engineers and operations directors can enjoy Christmas weekend without worrying about a zombie satellite hanging 23,000 miles over their heads.

Happy holidays, everyone!

I won't bore you guys with a day-by-day breakdown--you can do it yourselves if you want--but it's been a very warm week in much of the CONUS. According to HAMweather, there have been just 23 record daily low or low maximum temps in the past week--and a whopping 870 record daily highs or high minimums, an incredible ratio of 37.8 to 1. (All records were either new ones set, or existing ones tied.)

Of course, unseasonable cold is expected to--and will--make its return--but it's safe to say that the first week of winter has been pretty toasty.

You are incorrect. GFS has been consistent the past 4 or 5 runs. The Euro saw this 5 days ago. Meteorologists chose to write them off.

Not sure whether any of you have been following The Big Picture's 2010 Advent Calendar series that began on December 1, but if not, you may want to go have a look. The series ended today (of course) with the beauty below, a 24-frame animation made from a series of Hubble images taken over many months. There's more detail at the site, but this image basically shows energy being blown off by a star one and a half times as massive as the sun, but just 15 miles across, and spinning at 30 revolutions per second (1800 RPM).

Good morning,
We have a good chance of getting rain tonight in ECFL from this low coming from the GOM.
Though we may also see some gale force winds and water spouts so a good night to stay in.


Will be making Bookbinder's Cheesecake for Mother's Christmas dinner tonight.
If anyone wants a good cheesecake recipe, WUmail me and I'll send it to you.

29*F in Macon, Georgia this morning.
weather.Gov/Atlanta, the NWS office in Atlanta, Georgia said yesterday that Macon, Georgia has never had a white Christmas in "recorded" history, that is, back at least to the 1800's. We might make it into the record books later tonight! Merry Christmas to all of you. :)

Special Weather Statement
Statement as of 5:20 AM EST on December 25, 2010


... A mix of rain and snow likely for much of north and central
Georgia today through Sunday...

A low pressure system over the northern Gulf... will move across
North Florida today and strengthen along the Georgia and South
Carolina coasts tonight. At the same time... Arctic high pressure
will drop out of Canada and begin to spread much colder air over
the state through Sunday.

This system will begin spreading moisture into north Georgia this
morning... then southward into central Georgia by this afternoon.
A mixture of rain... sleet and snow is expected to begin across
north Georgia this morning... then spread southward through the
afternoon. The precipitation is expected to be mostly rain across
central Georgia today... then change to a rain and snow mix or
mostly snow later this evening or overnight as the colder air
spreads southward.

At this time... a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for areas
generally north of a Newnan to Madison to Washington line where
snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are expected... with greater
amounts possible in the higher elevations of northeast Georgia.

Although some light snow accumulations are possible south of this
line where a dusting on mainly grassy surfaces is possible. The main
threat will be icy roads this evening and overnight as temperatures
fall below freezing and water or slush on roadways freeze...
causing slick spots... especially on bridges and overpasses.

Anyone planning travel across north and central Georgia over the
Christmas weekend should keep abreast to the latest forecast.

NORTH CAROLINA TO GO UNDER A STATE OF EMERGENCY BECAUSE OF THIS LAST SECOND DOOMS DAY MODEL RUN


BREAKING NEWS


Rats! And in the Charleston area we have only a Winter Storm Watch for tonight through tomorrow.

Hope your emergency isn't as bad as the blizzard that hit Durham earlier this century. The sound of tree branches breaking off with a sound like a loud rifle crack and whole trees crashing to the ground was nerve-wracking in our heavily treed neighborhood. And the power cut was just a little too long-lasting.
