Much of the nation's South remains paralyzed today by a major winter storm that left up to a foot of snow and dangerous ice accumulations in its wake. Six states have declared states of emergency, and travel is extremely hazardous in the affected region, including Atlanta, where at least five closures of major interstates occurred this morning due to severe icing. The storm began Sunday in northeast Texas and tracked eastward, bringing snow amounts as high as 7 - 8 inches to northeastern Texas and southern Arkansas, 9 - 11 inches to northern Mississippi, northern Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, and southern Tennessee. As of 3am CST, the heaviest snow as reported in the NOAA Storm Summary occurred at Cashiers, North Carolina, 12.5 inches. The worst freezing rain was reported in central Georgia at Wrightsville, which received 1.5" of ice. Aiken, South Carolina received 1" of ice, and numerous locations in South Carolina, Central Georgia, and Central Alabama received over 1/2" of ice. Freezing rain amounts of 1/4" were also reported in northern Louisiana, central Mississippi, and western Arkansas. Dangerous travel conditions will persist across the affected region the rest of today, as temperatures will struggle to reach 40°.

Major Nor'easter expected for New York City and Boston
Today's snow storm has pushed off the coast of North Carolina, and is expected to "bomb" into a classic Nor'easter off the coast of New England tonight through Wednesday. Up to a foot of snow is possible for New York City, Boston, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. The heaviest snow--up to 16 inches--will likely fall across central Massachusetts, eastern Connecticut, western Rhode Island, and Long Island. Today's Nor'easter will not be as intense as the December 26 blizzard, however. The winds from today's storm are expected to remain less than 35 mph, resulting in only minor coastal flooding and an absence of blizzard conditions (frequent wind gusts over 35 mph or sustained winds over 35 mph, plus visibility less than 1/4 mile for at least three consecutive hours.)

Deadly flash flood hits Australia
Flood-weary Queensland, Australia suffered a new flooding disaster yesterday when freak rains of six inches fell in just 30 minutes near Toowoomba. The resulting flash flood killed nine people and left 59 missing. The flood waters poured into the Brisbane River, causing it to overflow, and significant flooding of low-lying areas in Brisbane, Australia's third largest city with some 2 million people, is expected on Thursday. As I discussed last week, Australia had its wettest spring (September - November) since records began 111 years ago, with some sections of coastal Queensland receiving over 4 feet (1200 mm) of rain. Rainfall in Queensland and all of eastern Australia in December was the greatest on record, and the year 2010 was the rainiest year on record for Queensland. The ocean waters surrounding Australia were the warmest on record during 2010, and these exceptionally warm waters allowed much higher amounts of water vapor to evaporate into the atmosphere, helping fuel the heavy rains. The record warm ocean temperatures were due to a combination of global warming and the moderate to strong La Niña event that has been in place since July. Queensland typically has its rainiest years when La Niña events occur, due to the much warmer than average ocean temperatures that occur along the coast. Beginning in December, the Queensland floods have killed at least 19, and done $5 billion in damage. Queensland has an area the size of Germany and France combined.


Figure 2. Remarkable 5-minute YouTube video showing the sad fate of a row of parked cars when a nearby small stream experiences a flash flood, sweeping away dozens of the cars. A note to the wise: Two minutes into the video, we see a man enter the flash flood to save his car. He is successful, but his actions were extremely risky--most flash flood deaths occur when cars with people inside get swept away. I would not have attempted to save my car in that situation.

Im becoming somewhat skeptical about weather patterns like La-nina ect ect.. that allow forecasters to give long range seasonal forecasts. For example.. All I heard before the 2010 hurricane season, is that the United States will likely be hit by multiple hurricanes. We all know that didnt happen. Then the same weather pattern was used to forecast a warmer-Drier Winter for the SE. Not happening so far. Could someone please explain in very basic Laymans terms, what is going on?

La Nina is the cause of the flooding in Queensland. Warmer than normal waters in the SE Pacific means more evaporation, east to west trade winds move the moisture and it hits the Great Dividing Range and the moisture falls as torrentualy rains. in 48hrs, 1 town in Northern NSW had 13inch's of rain.

Quoting Neapolitan:

The article states this: "...the heat-amplifying effect of water vapor is potent enough to double the climate warming caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere." IOW, the hotter the atmosphere gets due to greenhouse gases, the more water vapor it can hold--and the more water vapor it holds, the hotter it will get, as that water vapor itself acts as a greenhouse gas in trapping heat. Such phenomena are, of course, called "feedback loops", and there are many driving the rapid warming of the planet. They're all very interesting; I just wish they weren't so devastating...

On a side note: I find it almost charming and quaint that your response is almost completely devoid of substantive disagreement, yet so chock-full of seething attacks on both the solid climate science in the article and the writer of it. Do you really feel that's how we should be discussing science?

Morning all. I was away from Australia for 5 weeks and returned to mass flooding in Qld. My back yard is a mess of dirt from overflowing pots. I am lucky. In SE Queensland it's a brown inland sea that's flowing towards the Pacific ocean.
Brisbane is expecting a peak flood height of 5.2m, There is 115,000 people without power. Billion$ worth of damage to infrastructure. Billion$ worth of lose of crops and coal production. Sadly 23 people have lost there lives since the flood crisis, 12 in the last few days. Currently there is 49 people missing. Whole towns have been wiped out. Whole towns have been evacuated.

One thing they need to do is teach these characters to write better papers.

So now water vapor is an evil greenhouse gas as well.

Oh brother.

The whole point being made by those who see through the AGW fraud has been that Climate change is not a simple CO2 is at fault kind of thing. CO2 is simply a small player in a very complicated multi-element equilibrium.

No rocket science necessary.

Greenhouse gases may make a contribution to the climate, only problem is, the devil is in the details.

Had the author not had such a AGW slant in his viewpoint, the article would likely been written much clearer than it was.

This one is horribly written and extremely convoluted. He couldn't even get the energy facts straight.

Sadly, AGW bias means having to write in convoluted and twisted ways in order to cause confusion and consequently derive agreement because of the reader not wanting to say that they didn't get the drift of the article.

Its called saving face. They wouldn't want to look stupid in front of the professor now would they.

The article states this: "...the heat-amplifying effect of water vapor is potent enough to double the climate warming caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."

Quoting Chicklit:
I do not know what they are talking about, but perhaps you have a clue:
Science and politics of global climate change

Basically, it's an email exchange between Drs. Spencer and Dressler in which the latter tells the former--in very polite and scientific terms--that he's full of hot air: "...you have no evidence supporting your hypothesis beyond the mere existence of the correlation. Because of that, your theory explains nothing...and makes no testable hypotheses." IOW, what Spencer appears to have done is not much different than someone claiming the reason the earth spins is because there's a giant hamster running around a gargantuan wheel at the core, and when asked to explain how that can possibly be, responding, "Why, it's because the earth is spinning. Don't you see?" It's not unusual, of course, for Spencer to use such tactics; he tries very hard to bend science, though it steadfastly resists his every effort. But you gotta give him credit for perseverance. ;-)

Tropical Cyclone Advisory #10
TROPICAL CYCLONE VANIA (03F)
18:00 PM FST January 12 2011
=====================================

At 6:00 AM UTC, Tropical Cyclone Vania, Category One (987 hPa) located at 19.3S 169.2E has 10 minute sustained winds of 35 knots and is reported as moving southwest at 5 knots. Position POOR based on hourly multispectral visible/enhanced infrared radar imagery with animation and peripheral surface observations.

Gale Force Winds
=================
northwest quadrant and within 240 miles of center in sectors from north through east to southwest

Additional Information
=======================

Low level circulation center slightly obscured by cirrus outflow. Central dense overcast pulsating under diurnal influence but persisting about low level circulation center. Outflow good to north and developing elsewhere. Cyclone lies under a 250 HPA diffluent region with low shear. CIMSS indicates decreasing shear along forecast track. Sea surface temperature is around 29C. System currently steered by a weak northerly deep layer mean regime.

Dvorak assessment based on 0.60 LOG10 spiral yielding DT=3.0. MET-3.0, PT=3.0. Final Dvorak T number base on DT.

Dvorak Intensity: T3.0/3.0/D1.0/24HRS.

Most global models eventually move the cyclone southwest with further intensification.

Forecast and Intensity:
========================
12 HRS: 19.7S 168.5E - 40 knots (CAT 1)
24 HRS: 20.4S 167.8E - 40 knots (CAT 1)
48 HRS: 21.9S 167.0E - 50 knots (CAT 2)

The next tropical cyclone advisory from Fiji Meteorological Services will be issued at around 14:00 PM UTC..

It appears that an attempt to sequester CO2 in underground caverns is failing.

Before declaring the experiment an abject failure, one needs to know how much is leaking out, and how quickly; trace leakage does not mean that nothing has been achieved. Even if only half remains sequestered after, say, 1000 years, that could be significant.

That said, it is probable that one could do better.

========================================

At 2:00 PM WST, Tropical Cyclone Vince, Category One (987 hPa) located at 14.9S 107.5E, or 1050 km northwest of Exmouth has 10 minute sustained winds of 40 knots with gusts of 55 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving east at 2 knots.

Dvorak Intensity: T3.0/3.0/D0.5/24HRS

Gale Force Winds
=================
80 NM from the center

Forecast and Intensity
=======================
12 HRS: 15.0S 109.1E - 40 knots (CAT 1)
24 HRS: 15.4S 111.3E - 50 knots (CAT 2)
48 HRS: 16.9S 115.0E - 60 knots (CAT 2)
72 HRS: 17.8S 114.4E - 70 knots (CAT 3)

Additional Information
======================

The shear analysis is around 20 knots from CIMSS. The shear is expected to decrease due to a retrogressing upper trough, though models differ on the relative location of the LLCC to the upper trough, leading to some uncertainty as to how much the shear will drop. However, in general, conditions should be much more favourable for development over the next 48 hours.

The separation between the LLCC and the CDO is within 0.55 degrees. The Dvorak analysis is based on shear pattern giving DT of 3.0. The MET and PAT give 2.5. However FT is based on the DT so final T number is 3.0.

TC Vince is forecast to move slowly east-southeast over the next 48 hours. It is then expected to recurve westwards around 12Z on 14 Jan [ /- 12 hours]. There is significant divergence between the models on how fast the system will move while on the east southeastwards track, however all models now agree on no coastal impact to the Pilbara, with the system recurving well off the coast.

STIPS and model guidance generally do not show strong intensification during the next 48 hours but an assessment of the synoptic conditions indicates favourable conditions for development, hence the system is forecast to intensify at roughly the climatological rate.

The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 13:00 PM UTC..

That's a shame hcubed. Pity it isn't working.


Problem is, they have to compress it when they pump it in (higher concentrations than "normal" air), so when it leaks out, the drastically increased local CO2 level is killing things.

"...Since 2000, Cenovus has injected about 16 million tonnes of carbon dioxide underground..."

Interesting story coming out:

carbon-injected-underground-now-leaking

It appears that an attempt to sequester CO2 in underground caverns is failing.

"...Paul Lafleur of Petro-Find Geochem found carbon dioxide concentrations in the soil last summer that averaged about 23,000 parts per million — several times those typically found in field soils. Concentrations peaked at 110,607 parts per million.

Lafleur also used the mix of carbon isotopes he found in the gas to trace its source.

“The...source of the high concentrations of CO2 in the soils of the Kerr property is clearly the anthropogenic CO2 injected into the Weyburn reservoir,” he wrote.

“The survey also demonstrates that the overlying thick cap rock of anhydrite over the Weyburn reservoir is not an impermeable barrier to the upward movement of light hydrocarbons and CO2 as is generally thought..."

My brother in East Moriches, Long Island, NY reported 3-6 inches on the ground right now and the worst of the storm has yet to come. I'm expecting 2 feet in some areas, especially where the yellows and reds on the radar will move through. 1-3 inches per hour.

Quoting Neapolitan:

"...Thanks for posting the top graph; every time it shows up here or elsewhere, I can't help but chuckle at those who use it as "evidence" of cooling, when a) the bottom end of the last downward blue line is still higher than about 80% of the rest of the graph, and b) the more important red line showing the running 13-month average is still higher than about 99% of the graph..."

But, as had been noted before, charts are created for presentation. I can imagine that, somewhere there's a copy of the "correct" chart - the one that uses an averaging period of 100 years ago, and shows the ENTIRE red line as above zero.

It would still show the same trend, but would appear much scarier.

If one were honest, though, they'd see the point: that the climate scientists have been saying the temps would constantly climb, to levels never before seen. The increased CO2 is driving ever increasing temps, and there should be NO drop in temps, ever.

Yet there's a drop from a peak. Is this drop permanent? Probably not. But what if it does drop below the "zero" line?

Can scientists say, with certainty, that the average will NEVER drop below zero?
