This year is now the wettest year in nearly 200 years of record keeping in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A large, wet low pressure system soaked the Northeast U.S. on Wednesday and early Thursday, bringing 2.31 inches of rain to the City of Brotherly Love, bringing this year's precipitation total in Philly to 62.26 inches. This breaks the old yearly precipitation record of 61.20 inches, set in 1867. In a normal year, Philadelphia receives about 40 inches. According to wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt, this is one of the most difficult U.S. city records to break, since rainfall records in Philadelphia go back to 1820. The only other sites with a longer continuous precipitation record in the U.S. are Charleston, SC (1738 -) and New Bedford, MA (1816 -).

20+ inches above average precipitation in Ohio Valley, Northeast
Philadelphia is not alone in setting a wettest year in recorded history mark in 2011. Over a dozen major cities in the Ohio Valley and Northeast have set a new wettest year record, or are close to doing so. Thanks to rains associated with this year's tremendous tornado outbreaks in April in May, plus exceptionally heavy summer thunderstorm rains, combined with rains from Tropical Storm Lee and Hurricane Irene, portions of at least twelve states have seen rains more than twenty inches above average during 2011.



The fraction of the country covered by extremely wet conditions (top 10% historically) was 32% during the period January through November, ranking as the 2nd highest such coverage in the past 100 years. And if you weren't washing away in a flood, you were baking in a drought in 2011--portions of sixteen states had precipitation more than twenty inches below average (Figure 1.) The fraction of the country covered by extremely dry conditions (top 10% historically) was 22% during the period January through November, ranking as the 8th highest in the past 100 years. The combined fraction of the country experiencing either severe drought or extremely wet conditions was 56% averaged over the January - November period--the highest in a century of record keeping. Climate change science predicts that if the Earth continues to warm as expected, wet areas will tend to get wetter, and dry areas will tend to get drier--so this year's side-by-side extremes of very wet and very dry conditions should grow increasingly common in the coming decades.

Percentage of the contiguous U.S. either in severe or greater drought (top 10% dryness) or extremely wet (top 10% wetness) during the period January - November, as computed using NOAA's Climate Extremes Index. Remarkably, more than half of the country (56%) experienced either a top-ten driest or top-ten wettest year, a new record. Image credit: NOAA/NCDC.

Unofficial state yearly precipitation record set in Ohio
The Wilmington, Ohio NWS office announced last week that three stations in Southwest Ohio had unofficially broken the 140-year old state yearly precipitation record. Cheviot, Miamitown, and Fernbank have recorded 73.81", 71.89", and 70.85", respectively so far in 2011, beating the old record of 70.82" set at Little Mountain in 1870. According to wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt, the old record should be 72.08” at Mt. Healthy, Ohio in 1880.

Wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt summarizes the global weather extremes in November in his latest post.

Jeff -- How would you explain the connection between SW drought and NE heavy precipitation?

Is this accurate, as a simple summary:

"Warmer temperatures accelerate evaporation in the SW. Prevailing winds blow that moisture-laden air eastward, resulting in heavier precipitation in the NE."

If now, how would your refine that statement?

I live in Prattville Alabama, about 10 miles from Montgomery, the state capital. Gets a little warm in the summer (!) but the winters are usually pleasant. After 35 years in California, this is really a nice place by comparison. People are still decent and courteous, and they won't just step over you if you're lying on the sidewalk. I've been here almost six years and really like it.
I asked because you mentioned unusual high pressure in your area and how it affected your arthritis which I have. The weather here in Middle Tennessee causes more problems for me as opposed to South Florida. I hope there are no tornadoes too. We have had our share around here. I have never been to California and will try to visit there one day. Cant wait to check out a redwood forest.

The birth and eventual path of an individual storm (hurricane) is dependent on short-term weather patterns -- the position of the jet stream or the presence of a cold front.

Those day-to-day weather patterns are very fluid and have a tremendous impact on the strength and track of a specific storm

AGW stands for Anthropogenic (man-caused) Global Warming. This is really not a very precise term, since the real issue is climate change, and warming is just part of climate change. I guess it should really be ACC, but AGW has been more or less adoped on both sides of the issue.

Thanks for the kind words about geezers, but I'm afraid I know nothing about farm equipement. :) I do know a lot about model trains, though, and have a fair size model railroad that keeps me busy. I'm also a ham radio operator, and enjoy talking to people from around the world - actual talking, not texting or e-mailing. It's a little more of a challenge.

Tsunamis on the rise?

A team of scientists say the recent series of terrifying natural disasters could signify the beginning of a new cycle of large earthquakes.

Aussie, interesting video. I really think one of the main goals should be to reduce the number of false warnings. We'd always have to go down and clear the beach for every warning and, except for a two or three inch rise in ocean level, nothing would happen. That made it much harder to convince to people to get off the beach next time, and we only have a relatively small number of deputies and park rangers for over 100 miles of coastline. We have one area in Sonoma County, CA, where the Russian River meets the Pacific. It's one of the most popular beaches and it's packed on weekends. The trouble is that geologists tell us that, given the offshore topgraphy, the delta area would be subject to a 20-22 foot tsunami under the right conditions. We do our best to clear the area, but everyone just goes back in behind us. If we had to do this less often, and could tell people there was a high probability they'd be killed if they stayed there, that would really help. Right now, no one believes they are in any real danger and we are just being annoying.

High of -10C while a low of 0C. Gonna be a fun day. :P

Well actually, in this case Environment Canada uses the low temperature as the highest temperature at night and the highs as the lowest temperature during the day.

Last time this happened we had a flash freeze day and so no school! :D I'm kinda hoping that this happens again.

Something interesting, and tied to the subject of the current blog entry: a distrubing--though not unsurprising--new study has just been published that shows warming continuing "at a steady rate". In the article--published in the journal Environmental Research Letters--raw data from three surface temperature records and two lower-troposhere temperature records have been analyzed, and then, more importantly, "adjusted to remove the estimated impact of known factors on short-term temperature variations (El Niño/southern oscillation, volcanic aerosols and solar variability)". In other words, once the "noise" is removed, as climate scientists have been saying all along, "the global warming signal becomes even more evident". In the second graph below, note that, as the abstract says, 2009 and 2010 are the two hottest years (2011 data is not included). Yikes...

Cooling? Ha!

I guess us old geezers will too, just from a different place.

This high over the Southeast has been really strong, exceptionally so for down here. The barometer last night was 30.52, something I expect to see in places like Colorado. It's down to 30.43 this morning, so I'm hoping this front approaching from the west will finally get the high moving.

Really high pressure gets the arthritis in my neck started (another thing you kiddies will find about, along AGW) and I've had a weird upper respiratory infection for the past week. Coughed up about two and half lungs but no other symptoms except general body aches and pains and a good case of laryngitis. It's clearly some sort of virus and seems to be getting better, but hope you folks don't get it for Christmas. No real cold air on the horizon for us, so I don't think we'll have a white Christmas.

Effects of Global Warming on Polar Bears:

Global warming is melting the polar ice caps, robbing polar bears of the ice floes they need to hunt prey. As the annual sea ice melts, polar bears are forced ashore to spend their summers fasting. If the Arctic ice cap continues to melt sooner and form later, polar bears will become too thin to reproduce and they will become extinct by the end of this century.

The polar bear's home – the Arctic – is experiencing the effects of global warming more than any other place. Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world, and this is threatening to place the entire Arctic ecosystem in jeopardy.

Arctic sea ice is shrinking by what appears to be a greater rate every year – sea ice that not only provides hunting ground for polar bears, but shelter and transportation for seals, walrus, arctic foxes, and the Inuit people. The underside provides a surface for algae that support cod, char, beluga, and narwhal. The white sea ice also has a cooling effect on climate by reflecting light away from Earth's surface. As it melts, the global warming advances even more quickly.

The ECMWF has a totally different pattern at 240 hours than either the Canadian or GFS. I've noticed this a few times recently where the GFS tries to break the subtropical ridge too much in the extended time frame. At some point the pattern will break, but the ECMWF probably has a better track record in the past month or so. Let's see if in the coming days the ECMWF trends towards the GFS, or vice-versa. Still pretty far out in time.

The GFS ensemble mean shows a ridge in the west and a trough central and east, but the magnitude is highly in question right now.

Twelve trollers trolling
Eleven different Jasons
Ten Models Dooming
Nine loops of NOLA
Eight foot massages
Seven teen-age pro-mets
Six pack of Fresca
Five funny people
Four censored postings
Three pattern changes
Two guys in Georgia
And a storm doomed to hit MIAMI.

A true Christmas classic... Good job cos

How bout a deep-south snowstorm?
It'd be nice to get some kind of cooling; here in South Florida, at least, it's been very mild for quite a while, with no deep cold snaps as we would have usually seen by now. In fact, Naples hasn't dropped below 50 yet, which is unusual (though by no means unprecedented). We've been at or above normal 10 of this month's 13 days, as we were over 14 of the last 17 days of November, meaning 24 of the past 30 days have been warmer to much warmer than normal.

Look at his username. I think he may be the troll.... And besides, how does someone with that join date know about JFV and Jason? They haven't been on here trolling in months....

It's an old member circumventing a ban--the same person to whom you replied, and the author of 321. Do what you'd like, but I don't even bother responding; I just report and ignore, as the man says...

Looks as if our Scotland system is weakening.

Rule #1 of the Rules of the Road:
Keep it civil. Personal attacks, bickering, flaming, and general trollish behavior will not be tolerated.



Thank you! Some people have lots of hate in them.

Quoting Coldwellrnd:
I see StormTracker2K how you operate now. Pad your numbers with approximately 350 comments of nonsense and the same old BS weather maps we see from you on a daily basis before you begin your AGW campaign.

Rack up blog numbers to full others of your supreme credibility before the AGW BS comes out and starts working toward that Neapolitan-Skyepony anti-capitalist agenda.

Really smart there. Really smart. One problem. It feel a bit short.

Good try.

Play again sometime.
