A tranquil and record-warm Thanksgiving for much of the U.S.

Celebrations of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States in 2012 were aided by some of the most tranquil travel weather ever seen on what is America's busiest travel week. Unusually warm and precipitation-free conditions prevailed over almost the entire nation on Wednesday and Thursday, with many locations in the Midwest reporting their warmest Thanksgiving Day on record. At least three cities set records for their warmest temperature ever recorded so late in the year: Valentine, Nebraska (76° on Wednesday); Rochester, Minnesota (70° on Wednesday); and Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (65° on Thursday.) While the quiet weather was a boon for travelers, the lack of rain in the Midwest allowed the nation's worst drought since 1954 to expand; the U.S. Drought Monitor reported that the area of the contiguous U.S. covered by moderate or greater drought expanded by 1% to 60% this week. This reversed a seven-week trend of slowly decreasing drought that began on September 25 and extended until November 13, when the area covered by drought declined from 65% to 59%. The latest ten-day forecasts from the GFS and ECMWF models show much below average chances of precipitation across more 90% of the U.S., including the drought regions. These dry conditions will allow the drought to expand over the next two weeks, and potentially cover 65% of the contiguous U.S. again by mid-December. The next chance for significant rains in excess of one inch in the Midwest will not occur until December 2, at the earliest. The lack of rain will potentially cause serious trouble for barge traffic on the Mississippi River by December 10, when the river may fall below the level of -5 feet at St. Louis needed to allow barges to not scrape bottom.


Figure 1. This week's U.S. Drought Monitor shows 60% of the contiguous U.S. was in moderate or greater drought.


Figure 2. Predicted 8-day precipitation amounts from the 06Z (1 am EST) November 23, 2012 run of the GFS model. For the 8-day period ending on Saturday, December 1, only the Northwest Coast, Central Gulf Coast, and portions of the Tennessee Valley are predicted to receive rains in excess of one inch.

Quiet in the Atlantic
There are no threat areas in the Atlantic to discuss today, and none of the reliable models is forecasting tropical cyclone development between now and the Friday, November 30 official end of hurricane season. I wouldn't dismiss the possibility of one more named storm forming in December in the middle Atlantic between Bermuda and Puerto Rico, but late-season storms forming in that location rarely affect land.

Have a great holiday weekend, everyone!

Do the Great Lakes ever freeze over?


The lakes never completely freeze over, but most of the shoreline water does. Sometimes almost all of Lake St. Clair(yes I know it isn't a Great Lake) is frozen on the surface. The water on the lakes never freezes all the way to the surface and if it is deep enough you can go ice fishing(fun).

February 1895: The first freeze, on the 7th and 8th, was the most intense. Temperatures fell to 0° in Dallas, 11° in Austin and San Antonio, 15° in Galveston, and 16° in Corpus Christi. It was a quick front which had lost some of its potency by the time it reached Brownsville. The mercury at Fort Brown fell to 27° on the morning of the 7th, rose to 39° the next afternoon, then same to 22° the following night before warming into the forties. North of the Valley, temperatures remained below freezing all day on the 7th and 8th. This same freeze reached Florida with full force, sending the temperature down to the 20° range over most of Central Florida for a second time that winter. This was devastating to the citrus trees since they were in a very vulnerable state, just beginning to recover from the hard freeze the previous December. As a result, nearly all the citrus trees north of a Tampa-Melbourne line were destroyed (the Valley, of course, had no citrus industry back then.)

Fog or freezing rain... too little to mention about these two. Snow accumulates. Fog needs more attention, not the first time that a horrible pile up has happened. And very sad that not a weather issue when people do NOT SLOW DOWN! OR PUT THEIR LIGHTS ON!!!! Easy to avoid if people PUT the headlighs on and SLOW DOWN!I'd rather be safe..... and I'm a girl who can do 90 mph. I am a snail in heavy rain or fog!!!

Quoting Neapolitan:
Well, dense fog is hardly severe weather. In fact, fog is a stable-weather phenomenon. And that wreck, bad as it was, was in but a single location in Texas--hardly indicative of the nation's delightful Thanksgiving weather as a whole, and nothing on a par with, say, a massive multi-state winter system inconveniencing tens of millions. (Too, there are about 17,000 motor vehicle accidents in the U.S each day; the Texas wreck just happened to involve far more motor vehicles than normal.)

If that's not a play on words, and referring to more or less the same thing as "telekinesis" then:

The concept of "moving something with your mind" is conceivably plausible within the known laws of physics.

Although the existence of a biological mechanism to produce, contain, and direct whatever energy is involved to control the manipulation, well, that seems far fetched to believe it hasn't been found yet, though again, not entirely implausible.

After all, we have lots of similar things in science:

Savants can do decimal math to a higher degree of precision than computers.

Electric Eels store electric charge in their muscles, and consciously release it in deadly amounts. While not existing at comic book levels, obviously, it's the best example of conscious "anything-kinesis" that I know of in nature.

All fish appear to have at least one extra sense compared to humans.


Is the concept possible? Yes.

Is a mechanism possible? Yes. Humans are experimenting with the "Spooky action at a distance" as per Quantum Entanglement in laboratories all the time now.


Is a biological mechanism possible? Most likely.

Does it exist? Who knows. Almost everything you can conceive has existed at some scale, at some time in Earth's history of life.


See Doctor Dean Radin's book "The Conscious Universe". It is already demonstrated beyond all doubt. I don't care HOW thick your glasses are, how thin your lips are, how white your lab coat may be, or how snappy your pocket protectors and slide rulers may be. His book has been out nearing a decade now and NO ONE has found fault with his meta-analysis. Pure science.

PK and things like it are real. It's very annoying if you try to move along in the old world view. But there it is.

Do the Great Lakes ever freeze over?

Notwithstanding numerous reports to the contrary, the United States Geological Survey is of the opinion that none of the Great Lakes ever freezes over completely. This opinion is confirmed by the Detroit and Cleveland Navigation Company. Shallow regions along the shore are frequently covered with, ice. and sometimes: the, ice. extends, many miles [388] i toward the interior of the lakes. Navigation is generally stopped from early in December until about the first of April because of ice in and near harbors, at the’ ends of the lakes and in the channels connecting them. No data are available as to the proportion of lake surface frozen over during the various winters. Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes and it is said that the eastern part of this lake has frozen over’ sufficiently for a man to walk over the ice from Erie, Pennsylvania, to Long Point in Ontario, Canada. There is a natural tendency, as the United States Weather Bureau points out, to exaggerate the proportion of surface covered with ice. In 1904,. when the ice was thicker than at any other time on record, very little open water was visible from the shores of Lake Superior, which is the largest, deepest, most northern and the coldest of the Great Lakes. No water could be seen from the shores of Lake Ontario during the latter part of January of the same year. This, however, does not prove that the entire lake surface was frozen over. The lakes are so large that open water might be invisible from the shores even if only one-fourth of the surface were covered with ice. Observers in airplanes report large stretches of unfrozen water in the lakes even during winters when people along the shores are under the impression that the lakes are completely frozen over,

As the old saying goes, ...make lemonade.

Viewing it in Sandy's aftermath, my first thought was "They should leave it be as an art installation."
My second was it should be left up as a memorial, a reminder that folks shouldn't become complacent.
The third was of legal torts, as in "liability for failure to idiot-proof the world."

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for portions of the Upper Midwest and Upper Great Lakes. A strong storm system moving through the area is forecast to bring widespread snowfall totals of 1 to 3 inches, with up to 8 inches possible in portions of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wind gusts reaching 50 mph will also cause blowing snow to limit visibility at times.

VISIBILITY
A measure of the opacity of the atmosphere, and therefore, the greatest distance one can see prominent objects with normal eyesight. The National Weather Service has various terms for visibility. Surface visibility is the prevailing visibility determined from the usual point of observation. Prevailing visibility is considered representative of visibility conditions at the station. Sector visibility is the visibility in a specified direction that represents at least a 45 degree arc of the horizon circle. Tower visibility is the prevailing visibility determined from the airport traffic control tower (ATCT) at stations that also report surface visibility

To move us past the pointless argument over fog, vertical instability across a good portion of the Atlantic actually ended up average to slightly above average this season...the Gulf, off the East Coast, and in the subtropical Atlantic in specific. This is probably why we saw a high number of hurricanes: Chris, Ernesto, Gordon, Isaac, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Rafarl, Sandy. Meanwhile, the Caribbean and tropical Atlantic ended up quite a bit below average, and we obviously saw a lot of struggling storms there for the early and middle portion of the year.

NWS FAQ

4.1 How does the National Weather Service define severe weather?

There are many forms of hazardous, or severe weather. The primary mission of the National Weather Service is to provide forecasts and warnings for the protection of life and property. Forecasts can range from the climate and seasonal outlooks for agricultural interests provided by the Climate Prediction Center (www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov), to the daily county forecasts for the public issued by local NWS offices. The NWS issues warnings for heavy snow, freezing rain, high winds, flash flooding, river flooding, thunderstorms, tornadoes, tropical storms, and hurricanes. In a broad sense, these are all defined as severe weather as any of them can and do pose a threat to life and property.

What does "a single location" have to do with this being a severe weather event or not? We get sea fog with zero visibility that shuts down airports, interstates and shipping channels. When the NWS puts out dense fog advisories and everything shuts down I call that severe weather.

The GFS suggests this system will break an extended slow stretch out there by becoming a powerful typhoon, but the Euro doesn't even hint at developing it so I'm not real sure what to make of it. Clearly one of those two models is about to be badly embarrassed.

Well, 90W is at roughly 1N. It's going to be hard for something to wind up with it as close to the equator as it is. I see this becoming a tropical storm, but not a powerful typhoon.
