Europe cold wave deaths hit 200; low-snow winter for the U.S.

Brutal winter cold continues over most of Europe, where at least 200 people have died in a cold wave that began January 26. Hardest hit has been Ukraine, where the temperature bottomed out at -17°F (-27°C) at the capital of Kyiv this morning. It was the second coldest day of the cold wave, behind the -28°C reading of February 2. These temperatures are the coldest winter weather in six years in Ukraine, and at least 101 deaths are being blamed on the cold there. Also hard-hit has been Poland, where 37 people, most of them homeless, have died from the cold. Rome, Italy experienced a rare snowfall today, only its second day with snow during the past fifteen years. Very cold temperatures 10 - 20°C below average will continue for another seven days in Europe before gradually moderating late next week.


Figure 1. Departure of temperature from average as analyzed by the GFS model, for February 2, 2012. Remarkably cold air was present over Europe and western Alaska, while very warm air was over central North America and Siberia. This image is being generated experimentally by wunderground, and will be regularly available on our web site in the future.

Meanwhile, a snow drought for the U.S.
In the U.S., it's been the opposite story, with temperatures 10 - 15°F above average continuing this week over much of the nation. January 2012 is in the weather record books as the 3rd least-snowy January for the contiguous U.S. since snow records began in 1966, and December 2011 ranked as the 11th least snowy December on record. With no major snow storms in the offing over at least the next ten days, it's looking probable that the non-winter of 2011 - 2012 will set numerous record-low seasonal snowfall totals. The National Weather Service sends out a daily "Weather and Almanac" product for several hundred major U.S. cities that we make available on wunderground. I went through yesterday's statistics for those cities that reported measurable snow this winter. Only nine cities out of 166 major U.S. cities in the lower 48 states reported above-average snowfall as of February 1; 157 cities received below-average snowfall. The big winner in the snow sweepstakes has been Alaska, which is boasting 8 of the top 10 locations for heaviest snowfall this winter. While the 27.75 feet of snow that has fallen on Valdez has gotten a lot of attention, more remarkable is the 18.8 feet of snow Yakutat has received. That's more than 12.5 feet above what they usually have by this time of year.



The big losers in the snow stats for this winter are the cities along the lake effect snow belts on the Great Lakes. Most notably, Syracuse, New York is nearly four feet of snow below average for this time of year. Perhaps more exceptional is Williston, North Dakota, which has received just 1.8" of snow this winter--more than two feet below their average for February 1.



Have a super weekend, everyone, and I'll be back Monday with a new post.

Interesting headline in the lead article from the Am. Met. Society's September 1933 journal...

IS OUR CLIMATE CHANGING? A STUDY OF LONG-TIME TEMPERATURE TRENDS
LOL

This climate change debate has been around longer than we may think.....

Looking back at 1933, I am fully convinced there were some additional storms in the eastern Atlantic that weren't observed. There was at least one storm in every other part of the basin that year, and while nothing was tracked from east of about 55W, quite a few storms came out of the MDR.... and I wouldn't be surprised if we had a few that got big and pretty near Africa and just went up the centre of the ocean [I mean before they got to 45W].

There's some interesting reading in the 1933 journals, including a definitive article on storm surge in the Gulf by Isaiah Kline of Galveston fame...

More reason to say you misunderstand the metric. Flash flood events such as this saturate the surface with little penetration. Usually do more harm than good as cause excessive erosion due to the lack of ground cover from preceding drought conditions.

Tropical Disturbance Summary
TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 10F
9:00 AM FST February 4 2012
=====================================

At 21:00 PM UTC, Tropical Disturbance 10F (998 hPa) located at 19.7S 172.7E. Position poor based on multisatellite visible/infrared imagery with animation and surface observations.

Organization remains poor for the last 12 hours. Convection has increased slightly in the past 12 hours. Disturbance lies beneath an upper level ridge axis. The system lies in an area of moderate vertical wind shear and will continue to be steered east-southeastwards. Sea surface temperature is around 29C.

Global models are moving the system east-southeastwards with slight intensification in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Potential for this system to develop into a tropical cyclone in the next 24 to 48 hours is low to moderate.

There has been one tropical storm in February. It struck South Florida in 1952. Some experts agree that there have been other tropical cyclones in the month of February, but they were not detected or recorded...bbl

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
705 PM EST FRI FEB 03 2012

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR NORTH AMERICA...CENTRAL
AMERICA...GULF OF MEXICO...CARIBBEAN SEA...NORTHERN SECTIONS
OF SOUTH AMERICA...AND ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE AFRICAN COAST
FROM THE EQUATOR TO 32N. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS BASED
ON SATELLITE IMAGERY...WEATHER OBSERVATIONS...RADAR...AND
METEOROLOGICAL ANALYSIS.

BASED ON 1800 UTC SURFACE ANALYSIS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 2300 UTC.

...THE ITCZ/THE MONSOON TROUGH...

THE MONSOON TROUGH EXTENDS ACROSS W AFRICA TO THE COAST OF SRN
GUINEA AT 9N13W TO 6N15W. THE ITCZ CONTINUES FROM 6N15W ALONG
4N30W 2N38W 2N52W.

...DISCUSSION...

THE GULF OF MEXICO...
SURFACE RIDGING EXTENDS ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO TODAY FROM A
HIGH PRESSURE CENTER OVER WEST VIRGINIA PROVIDING E-SE FLOW OF
15-20 KTS OVER THE BASIN. HOWEVER...AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING
THROUGH THE WRN GULF ALONG 93W IS PROVIDING DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND
A GOOD AMOUNT OF MOISTURE OVER THE CENTRAL AND ERN PORTIONS OF
THE AREA. OVERCAST SKIES AND ISOLATED SHOWERS COVER THE AREA E
OF 91W WITH A SMALL AREA OF SCATTERED SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS NEAR
A SURFACE TROUGH ANALYZED ALONG 26N88W 23N89W. DRY AIR ALOFT
AROUND THE W SIDE OF THE UPPER TROUGH IS KEEPING THE AREA W OF
91W MOSTLY CLEAR OF CLOUDS. CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN THE SAME
UNTIL A COLD FRONT PUSHES OFF THE TEXAS COAST AROUND 1800 UTC
TOMORROW.

THE CARIBBEAN SEA...
A MODERATE PRESSURE GRADIENT CONTINUES TO BE MAINTAINED BETWEEN
LOWER PRESSURE OVER S AMERICA AND HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE W ATLC
AND ERN CONUS. THE GRADIENT IS SUPPORTING 20-25 KT TRADEWIND
FLOW ACROSS THE MAJORITY OF THE BASIN...INCREASING TO GALE FORCE
NEAR THE COAST OF COLOMBIA. WHILE UPPER LEVEL RIDGING COVERS THE
BASIN...AN APPROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH EXTENDS OVER THE WRN
GULF AND DOWN CENTRAL AMERICA PROVIDING DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND
UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE OVER THE WRN CARIBBEAN. SCATTERED
SHOWERS/ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE W OF 81W. THE REMAINDER OF
THE BASIN HAS SOME UPPER LEVEL CLOUD COVER AND ISOLATED LOW
LEVEL CLOUDS WITH POSSIBLE SHOWERS EMBEDDED WITHIN THE TRADEWIND
FLOW. EXPECT GALE FORCE WINDS TO CONTINUE NEAR THE COAST OF
COLOMBIA WITH LITTLE CHANGE ELSEWHERE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

THE ATLANTIC OCEAN...
A COLD FRONT DRAPES ACROSS THE W ATLC ALONG 32N59W 28N67W 27N75W
DISSIPATING TO 27N79W. ISOLATED SHOWERS ARE WITHIN 90 NM AHEAD
OF THE AXIS. THE FRONT IS SUPPORTED BY AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH
OVER THE NW ATLC S OF NEWFOUNDLAND. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE COVERS
THE REMAINDER OF THE W ATLC EXTENDING FROM THE CARIBBEAN AND
ACROSS THE FAR ERN CONUS. A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH IS AHEAD OF THE
FRONT ALONG 27N55W TO 21N58W SUPPORTING A FEW ISOLATED SHOWERS
IN ITS VICINITY. THE REMAINDER OF THE BASIN IS COVERED BY
SURFACE RIDGING EXTENDING FROM A HIGH PRESSURE CENTER WELL N OF
THE AREA. ALOFT...AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IS ALONG 37W PROVIDING
UPPER LEVEL CLOUDS S OF 18N TO THE AFRICAN COAST. AN UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE IS TO THE E ALONG 24W.

Not good, not good at all. This will definitely exacerbate the severe weather potential across much of the East/South USA this month and in following months.

Still monitoring the prospects of a subtropical/tropical cyclone in February. That would be amazing.

Yes, I am surprised more people are not familiar with this aquifer, as it is one of the most important to a great part of or agriculture. It is one of the most carefully guarded aquifers due to its location near operating oil and gas wells. If there were to be a spill in this, there is no such thing as a cleanup.
