A wild weather night in Arizona

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 3:08 AM GMT on January 22, 2010

The most powerful low pressure system in Arizona history is generating havoc in the state tonight, as a powerful cold front sweeps through. Prescott last hour recorded sustained winds at 52 mph, gusting to 67 as the cold front passed. Visibility was zero in blowing dust on I-10 connecting Phoenix and Tucson, and a cooperative observer in Apache Junction between Phoenix and Tucson reported sustained winds of hurricane force, 74 mph. A tornado touched down just west of Blythe, on the Arizona California border, at 4:31 pm MST. The twister crossed I-10, blowing three semi trucks over, blowing the roofs off houses, and downing power lines. I-10 has been closed until further notice, according to media reports.

This past hour, Phoenix obliterated their all-time record low pressure, set in 1902. The old record was 29.32", and they are now at 29.22", with the pressure still falling. Flagstaff has also beaten their all-time low pressure record, which was 29.15", set in 1937. The pressure has fallen to 29.13" so far. Yuma also set a new record, 29.15", compared to the old record of 29.37". At 4:41 PM today, Las Vegas set a new record of 29.03 inches. This crushed the all-time record low sea level pressure of 29.17 inches set in December 1949. Fresno, Bakersfield, Eureka, and San Diego have also set new all-time low pressure records today.

Those are some pictures. Thank you Dr. Masters.
Thanks for the update Dr. M..such powerful storms so early in the year - one has to wonder what devastation and destruction the rest of 2010 may hold.
Hi, Grothar; Hi, Ally,

I don't think anybody expected another blog today.
Or all this devastation.

I've been following CA all day, and we're expecting some messy weather, so I've been very distracted.

About the Huntsville tornado. This is an embarrassing question. I know where Huntsville, AL is...but is that where the Huntsville tornado was today? (blush)
Good evening AIM...yes the tornado was in Huntsville, AL - which is located in the north part of the state almost to the TN line.
I just pray that between the earthquakes and storms that this is not a prelude to more things to come. One has to wonder - maybe the Mayans have it right...

Thanks. I liked the little time I got to spend in Alabama, after Gustav (around Birmingham). Wish I'd been able to stay longer -- but then there was Ike.

Was there much damage from the tornado?

I'm starting to think the Mayans may be right. Just to be safe, I haven't made any plans for 2013.
No, it's worse. We have to live, even try to thrive, despite, or in spite of, all these terrible losses...and to clean them up.

Don't mean to sound pompous. Heck, I haven't even made any plans for this weekend.
Just got a bit worse. Tuscon WFO recorded a 94 mph gust, according to this: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/climo/reports/today.html

That has to be doing damage. I'm not sure what the building codes are there, but that has to be causing problems.
Guess I'm going to have to call our son in Phoenix tomorrow. Sounds like a fun night for him. *#&^&$&(@ One of the bad parts about having the kids scattered all over.

I've worked in Tucson. Around the Tucson Med. Center anyway, the homes and structures seemed to be pretty strong (concrete mostly), long, low to the ground as well.

And does anybody really care about John Edwards' kid, as long as he pays his child support? Geesh, the weather's been a lot more interesting.

Last week was try & save the those that were too cold, this week it's pick up the dead & deal with the smell of the 100s of thousands that no one is picking up. The Indian River isn't for the faint of heart. With temps touching 80ºF and the week plus since death waved it's hand~ carcass of puffers, catfish & rays have gone rank.

There was a 1 1/2 ft long sea turtle dead, marked in orange, his shell broke. When Brevard County animal services showed up, we went to watch. After it was recorded & put in the back of a pick-up the man asked if we would like to see what else they'd picked up. Well yeah.. Drops the tail gate~ two huge sea turtles.. victims of the cold. The largest..Huge, over 2 ft tall, near 3ft wide. He tells us it was over 200 years old. Him & his coworker were pretty proud they'd got it up in there. They were pretty ripped. The one they had just picked up, with the broken shell had been hit by a boat.
Thanks Dr. Masters for the late update this evening. Wgat a wild day of weather, from the storms and tornadoes out west, to the tornadoes that touched down earlier today in NE FL. There has been some damage in Orange Park and other areas in Clay and St. John's counties. There was also a possible tornado north of Jax near the FL-GA border.

I registered 1.8 inches of rain for the event at my home location in north Jax.

evening all
Summerhaven (on top of Mt. Lemmon next to Tucson) has recorded sustained winds of 67 mph, gusting to 86 mph tonight. Temperature still 36, but blizzard conditions expected Friday morning.

And don't forget the earthquake swarm that is continuing in Yellowstone. Another 3.0 EQ just hit in the last hour, in the same location as the ones over the previous four days. Have to wonder what is going on under that supervolcano right now. This is definitely a wacky weather (and geologic) winter.

Click pic for loop. The swirl off WA is interesting too.

Thank-you for being there doing the hardest work people ever have to do.

You are much admired for it.

It's harsh enough with the winds alone
but, speaking from Vermont, I can attest that a blizzard with winds like that would be pretty hard to bear up here in snowland, let alone in the southwest!!!

Very grateful for the update, Dr. Masters!


here's a different angle

Here's an article I just looked up on the magma chamber under Yellowstone -- pretty scary actually:

Thanks for the update. It is a mess out there. My daughter in law and grand daughter were stranded at the airport in Phoenix, apparently so were thousands of others. Coordinating from Texas here we just found them a room and transportation. I just hope all this weather isn't headed to Denver tomorrow and that they are.

Hi Matt. I'm doing good. Hope you are too. It got to 80 today. Had to run the ac. We had some freezing cold, snow, windchill factor and all that for about a month. Glad its getting back to normal. :)
Computer models all indicated a series of powerful storms. This is more powerful and simply amazing to have tornadoes in CA and AZ, with Hurrcane force winds. Simply amazing!

Hi. I'm fixing to head to bed myself. Came on to check Denver's weather for tomorrow and saw DRM'S blog. So far so good. Hope you are doing well.
It has been pouring in Tampa for the last 1 1/2 hours and this thing is not moving at all it seems....



Dew point is 68 in Tampa 69 degrees, wondering how the LLJ is situated. Kinda concerned about that line of storms along the front.

I'm fine, thanks. Just weirded out by the weather; sad for Haiti. We'll get some nastiness tomorrow just in time for the weekend...but I'd feel silly complaining. Hope Denver will be okay; you're a good MIL and gramma. My son was born near Denver.

I hope I get to see Yellowstone some day before its final burp!

G'night for real! Can't wait to see what the morrow brings.
It is training big time......the front has stalled and actually has moved North some ...check this out.....

Yellowstone Recent Status Report, Updates, and Information Releases
YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO OBSERVATORY INFORMATION STATEMENT
Thursday, January 21, 2010 2:26 PM MST (Thursday, January 21, 2010 2126 UTC)


Yellowstone Volcano
44°25'48" N 110°40'12" W, Summit Elevation 9203 ft (2805 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN

The earthquake swarm on the northwest edge of Yellowstone Caldera that began on January 17, 2010 continues.



PRESS RELEASE FROM YVO PARTNER UNIVERSITY OF UTAH SEISMOGRAPH STATIONS



Released: January 21, 2010 2:00PM MST



This release is a continuation of information updates building upon our two previous press releases on the ongoing earthquake swarm on the west side of Yellowstone National Park. The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports that a pair of earthquakes of magnitude 3.7 and 3.8 occurred in the evening of January 20, 2010 in Yellowstone National Park.



The first event of magnitude 3.7 occurred at 11:01 PM and was shortly followed by a magnitude 3.8 event at 11:16 PM. Both shocks were located around 9 miles to the southeast of West Yellowstone, MT and about 10 miles to the northwest of Old Faithful, WY. Both events were felt throughout the park and in surrounding communities in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho.



These two earthquakes are part of an ongoing swarm in Yellowstone National Park that began January 17, 2010 (1:00 PM MST). The largest earthquake in the swarm as of 12 PM, January 21, 2010, was a magnitude 3.8. There have been 901 located earthquakes in the swarm of magnitude 0.5 to 3.8. This includes 8 events of magnitude larger than 3, with 68 events of magnitude 2 to 3, and 825 events of magnitude less than 2. There have been multiple personal reports of ground shaking from observations inside the Park and in surrounding areas for some of the larger events (for felt reports, please visit http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/dyfi/). Earthquake swarms are relatively common in Yellowstone.



The swarm earthquakes are likely the result of slip on pre-existing faults rather than underground movement of magma. Currently there is no indication of premonitory volcanic or hydrothermal activity, but ongoing observations and analyses will continue to evaluate these different sources.



Seismic information on the earthquake can be viewed at the University of Utah Seismograph Stations: http://www.seis.utah.edu/.



Seismograph recordings from stations of the Yellowstone seismograph network can be viewed online at: http://quake.utah.edu/helicorder/yell_webi.htm.



Anyone who has felt earthquakes in the swarm are encouraged to fill out a form on the USGS Community Felt reports web site: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/dyfi/.



This press release was prepared by the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory partners of the U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Utah, and the National Park Service: http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/yvo/

The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) is a partnership of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Yellowstone National Park, and University of Utah to strengthen the long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake unrest in the Yellowstone National Park region. Yellowstone is the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world and the first National Park. YVO is one of the five USGS Volcano Observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.

I don't know but, it sure looks very similar too the way our Volcano looked in Alaska before it blew........NOT SAYING YellowStone is going to do that but, there is a lot of similarites to it....

Thanks for the update. I'm in Santa Fe New Mexico, and this system is heading our way. We had 6 inches of snow overnight Monday, and everyone is saying this one is going to be much worse. Yet they're also saying to expect 6 inches.

I have a (stupid) question. During hurricane season I'm on wunderground all the time, and look at all the different models and tracking info. Is there anything like that available for storms like these? I *hate* trying to get weather info from TV news!

Well I have to get to bed now, stay safe. It looks like Tampa is in for round #2.
My friends near Blythe said there was an emergency alert, the power went out and then all heck broke loose. They lost their car port awning. There are a lot of elderly residents in La Paz county, many snowbirders who winter here and live in motor homes and travel trailers. Most local people live in manufactured homes or trailers, many elderly live alone. The ground is so saturated that power crews will have difficulty restoring power poles. When I took my dog out later, my foot sank up to my ankle in the sand. The tornado warnings and watches moved east to Phoenix, causing more damage. The clean up and restoring services for folks is going to take quite a while.
Tornado warning for Port Canaveral area in Brevard county. A tremendous amount of rain has fallen from this system. 2.43 inches and it is still pouring at my house in Longwood.
This must be 3 to 4" inch per hour rain. I can't see anything out my window and the lights are on outside. WOW!! Reports are coming in from Orlando of street flooding. Dewpoint is 70 right now.

Yeah, 2009 was fairly quiet overall, but 2010 has started off very busy. I'm afraid that there will be massive tornado outbreaks all across the country this year. Hurricane season could also be quite busy. I just hope the earthquakes calm down since those tend to be massive killers. Has anybody heard an updated death count from Haiti? The last I heard was about 80,000 confirmed dead.

DELAND, Fla. --
Residents in DeLand are cleaning up after fierce storms on Thursday blew down trees and power lines.

Along Lake Gertie Road, power lines were strewn across neighborhoods and trees rested on top of cars.

"It looks like they are pretty totaled," said Martin Thomas, whose cars was crushed.

Thomas described the storm as very powerful, noting that the tree, which fell on his van and Honda Accord, was not that old.

"It could have been a tornado," he said. "I saw something that looked like a little twister."

Despite the damage, Martin said it could have been worse.

"Thank God, it didn't go through my roof. We were watching TV. It probably would have hit us if it did. It was scary, my children started crying," he said.

Another neighbor said the wind picked up and then died down seconds later.

Pam Clark said the wind lasted about 20 to 30 seconds.

"It was real quick," she said. "It didn't last very long."

Clark said she and her husband grabbed their children and rushed to safety.

"I put them in the hall closet and threw blankets over them and made them duck," she said.

The wind also knocked out power in several blocks. Crews said they would be working through the night to have them repaired.

That is one heck of a swarm. I just looked at the USGS earthquake page, and every single event in yellowstone is centered within a very narrow area. Compared to a couple of days ago, the quakes look to be slightly shallower on average, too. (before, they were 10-11km down, now they are averaging closer to 9km down... and a few are very shallow)

hrm... maybe a new hydrothermal vent? or something more sinister?

Well it's definitely not going to go unnoticed. There are a number of 3-4 magnitudes in there. Link

We know there is uplift and we know these tremors are related to that. So it's always a concern.

How much? Do any of us know? I don't think we do.

This could simply pan out as the 2009 swarm did. Although I don't recall so many high 3's with that event.

Before we get worried we'd need to see a quake in the 5-6 range.

Yet, again, this isn't an average volcano. We don't know what the warning signs are and whether or not it just suddenly pops or if it gives us weeks of 4s and 5s hinting at it's future activity.

It's going to go off someday again. We all know that. We all also know it's due to erupt.

If it happens it happens. We're hardly in control here.

The worry is if it does go off, well, you can kiss modern society goodbye as we know it. :/

I think those might prove to be erroneous for everything else is in the 9-10km range. False echoes maybe?

Just watch yellow stone lake for evaporation and tilting to one side. It's been tilting to one side for awhile now. If it starts tilting to one side very rapidly watch out. There's a huge magma chamber under neath the lake and when the lake tilts that means the magma chamber is filling up and starting to push outwards.

These earthquakes are probably linked to magma or larva movement under the ground. The different depths for the earthquakes can be attributed to different depths in the magma chambers.

Is it possible that the Haiti earthquake and the Yellowstone event are linked?

The State Emergency Service says there are reports of damage to boats and buildings as a result of Cyclone Magda but no injuries.

The category two system is crossing the mainland for a second time.

It crossed over the Kuri Bay pearling settlement early this morning.

Magda is currently 140 kilometres north-east of Derby, moving south at 13 kilometres an hour.

SES District Manager Gordon Tiddums says the pearl farm's 20 staff are all accounted for.

"I believe Kuri Bay did experience some structural damage to what extent I'm not quite sure," he said.

"But all personnel are ok at Kuri Bay, they're talking about a couple of boats tipped over."

Cyclone Magda is expected to weaken further as it continues inland and pass by Derby as a category one system.

How Storms Can Trigger Earthquakes


I really don't believe in that. You can't blame earthquakes on climate change.

And of course mudslides are triggered by heavy rainstorms. DUH?

Come'on now. You really think a 5" rain event is going to penetrate 6 miles down into the earth and lubricate a fault that was ready to slip?

You really think barometric pressure....at the slightest changes (of which we experience) is going to cause a landslide?

Nah....not really feeling that theory at all.

The pressure differences are minimal in the grand scheme of things and the weight of the rain and distance it soaks into the earth is so incredibly small. A 20" flooding rain (like Fay in Florida) isn't going to sink miles down into the earth and cause a quake.

It's faulty science. A neat idea I will give it that but it's completely illogical.

USNS Comfort Crew Settles into Busy Reality

By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Jan. 21, 2010 – The USNS Comfort lived up to its name today as the medics and crew of the hospital ship continued to provide medical aid to the residents of this devastated land.


In short, it was a very busy day as the medics tended to some of the most challenging cases caused by the magnitude 7 earthquake that struck Jan. 12. By mid-afternoon today, more than 160 Haitian patients were admitted to the floating hospital.

Surgeries were performed almost around the clock. There were nine yesterday -- the first day -- with the last finished at 4:30 this morning. The operating room personnel began work again two hours later.

The intensive care units and wards were beginning to fill to capacity of 1,000 beds. “We have never had that number on the ship, but we can do it,” Navy Dr. (Capt.) Jim Ware, the medical group commander, said.

More medical professionals are arriving, and all are highly motivated. “We had critical care nurses show up today, and after they signed in, they put their scrubs on and went to work,” said Command Master Chief Chip Collins, the Comfort’s top enlisted sailor. “They said, ‘I can put my stuff away later. Where do you need me?’”

And the help is needed. On the main deck, litter bearers bring patients to the casualty receiving area after they are unloaded from helicopters on the flight deck. The elevator door opens and litter bearers come onto the red deck of the receiving area.

“Six,” says Navy Lt. Cmdr. Dan D’Aurora, who “owns” the area. D’Aurora is a nurse and a force of nature. All of the medical personnel in CASREC have their names and ranks printed on surgical tape on their shirts or scrubs. D’Aurora’s shirt has another across the back with the word, “Bulldog.”

The litter bearers bring the litter to Bay 6 where they are met by doctors, nurses and corpsmen who transfer the patient from the litter to the bed. “Get the bed the same height,” says a nurse as corpsmen crank the bed up to transfer the patient. “On three. One, two, three – lift!”

Some patients have breathing tubes and a corpsman presses a bladder to ensure air gets in the patient’s lungs. Other corpsmen and nurses hook the patient to monitors.

The doctor looks at the patient and any records. All check over the patient to ensure some injury hasn’t been overlooked. If X-rays are ordered, a technician brings a portable machine over and the lifting – or turning -- process begins again.

Treatment takes many forms. One doctor performed a spinal tap on a young Haitian boy. Another read an X-ray and sent the patient immediately to the operating room. Still another looked to see that the broken leg was set correctly, then sent the patient directly to one of the wards.

Sailors who serve as translators are an integral part of the team. Most were born in Haiti and emigrated to the United States with their families. They are the conduit that doctors and nurses use to communicate with the Haitian patients.

“They have been nothing short of fantastic,” D’Aurora said. “When we were here last year for [Exercise] Continuing Promise, we did half the patients because we couldn’t communicate. We learned.”

While there are some cries of pain, the patients are pretty stoic. “Again, it helps there’s someone there who speaks their language,” D’Aurora said.

There are a number of bays in CASREC, and several times today, they were all filled. The process works quickly and smoothly and is getting smoother as the medics gain experience.

“This isn’t ‘ER,’” said Navy Dr. (Cmdr.) Tim Donahue, the chief of surgery. “People work quietly and quickly. This is real life. Not TV.”

The medics sometimes move quickly. “Running man!” yells one corpsman as a nurse comes into CASREC at a full sprint with needed equipment.

The patients come in all shapes, sizes and ages. A baby was born on the Comfort today. Both mother and daughter are doing well.

In another bay, Charlene, who is five, hugs a teddy bear she received when she got to the ship. She has a bandage on her left foot, but medics are concerned about her sight. Navy Dr. (Capt.) Terence McGee places eye drops in to dilate her pupils. She is a brave young lady as the doctor looks in her eyes. When he finishes the examination, she begins to cry so he picks her up. He asks if she has an escort – her mom or dad – and is told no.

“Five years old and alone,” he says, and continues to rock her back and forth.

Researchers report Yellowstone earthquake swarm

The Associated Press
Updated: 01/19/2010 07:24:48 AM MST

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. » Add another small earthquake to the swarm of temblors that have rattled Yellowstone National Park in recent days.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.3-magnitude earthquake struck at 8:39 p.m. Monday, and it was centered 9 miles southeast of the town of West Yellowstone, Mont. No damages or injuries have been reported.

Rafael Abreu, a USGS geophysicist, says a swarm of earthquakes has hit the park in recent days, which is normal.

Jamie Farrell, a doctoral student at the University of Utah, says the swarms generally last from a few days to weeks but sometimes last for months.

The recent series of quakes started Sunday night, and Farrell says more than 200 had been counted by 9 a.m. Monday.

On Monday night, the USGS says, one person within the park had reported feeling the 3.3-magnitude quake.

Exactly. The lake tilting is a good indicator, but the center of the lift may be away from the lake itself, and the lake could be on the side of the uplift. Also, look at the calderas on the last 3 major eruptions in Yellowstone... they overlap, but rarely use the same border. IMO, I think this is swarm due to magmatic movement, and will taper off in a bit after becoming more shallow. At the same time, I think that several geysers and hot springs will change their schedule, temp, or chemical composition in the coming weeks... and some new ones may form, or old ones may grow dormant. It will be interesting to watch, though.


As for the pair of shallow quakes, they are of large enough magnitude that I seriously doubt they are reflections of anything. After all, to be reflections, they have to be reflecting *something*. The timing is off, as is the magnitude. I think the lower quakes may be unsettling rocks and such further up, which is *not* a good trend to start. They may also be hydrothermal in origin, rather than magmatic.
(until we see quakes consistently hit in the 5-6km range, I wouldn'be too concerned)

Rain: How to spot an oncoming landslide
January 22nd, 2010, 4:00 am
posted by KELLI HART, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

All of Orange County has been hit hard with rain this week, but some areas could feel the impact of it more than others.

It’s no secret that hilly Laguna Beach is subject to landslides, but do you know how to recognize the signs of an oncoming landslide before it happens?

Here are FEMA’s tips on how to anticipate an oncoming landslide and what to do after one happens: lblandslide

Signs of an oncoming landslide:

* Changes occur in your landscape such as patterns of storm-water drainage on slopes (especially the places where runoff water converges) land movement, small slides, flows, or progressively leaning trees.
* Doors or windows stick or jam for the first time.
* New cracks appear in plaster, tile, brick, or foundations.
* Outside walls, walks, or stairs begin pulling away from the building.
* Slowly developing, widening cracks appear on the ground or on paved areas such as streets or driveways.
* Underground utility lines break.
* Bulging ground appears at the base of a slope.
* Water breaks through the ground surface in new locations.
* Fences, retaining walls, utility poles, or trees tilt or move.
* A faint rumbling sound that increases in volume is noticeable as the landslide nears.
* The ground slopes downward in one direction and may begin shifting in that direction under your feet.
* Unusual sounds, such as trees cracking or boulders knocking together, might indicate moving debris.
* Collapsed pavement, mud, fallen rocks, and other indications of possible debris flow can be seen when driving (embankments along roadsides are particularly susceptible to landslides).

How to recover from a landslide:

* Stay away from the slide area. There may be danger of additional slides.
* Check for injured and trapped persons near the slide, without entering the direct slide area. Direct rescuers to their locations.
* Watch for associated dangers such as broken electrical, water, gas, and sewage lines and damaged roadways and railways.
* Replant damaged ground as soon as possible since erosion caused by loss of ground cover can lead to flash flooding and additional landslides in the near future.
* Seek advice from a geotechnical expert for evaluating landslide hazards or designing corrective techniques to reduce landslide risk.

Better monitoring.

Same with Tornado totals being recorded. Hurricanes as well.

Well, anything for that matter.

A better network of monitoring.
It always comes down to, no it's natural for some people. Ofc the california tornadoes in the past went all without notice. Your assumption is flawed.
Quoting drg0dOwnCountry:

Than explain the expotential uptake of earthquake activities in recent years.


It's not a expotential uptake of earthquakes. If you look back into history you will see times were lot's of earth quakes happened and times of no activity. Were in a time of more activity. Plates and faults are always moving and causing stress. History tells us that a really bad quake happened in Haiti 200 years ago, but it was so long ago no body is alive that went through it, so it becomes a story or historical event.

You've got to be kidding me. It is going to wrap around! Anyone have an opinion on this? ROFL. It looks better than the majority of last summers' tropical systems did.

USNS Comfort Crew Settles into Busy Reality

By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
The patients come in all shapes, sizes and ages. A baby was born on the Comfort today. Both mother and daughter are doing well.

In another bay, Charlene, who is five, hugs a teddy bear she received when she got to the ship. She has a bandage on her left foot, but medics are concerned about her sight. Navy Dr. (Capt.) Terence McGee places eye drops in to dilate her pupils. She is a brave young lady as the doctor looks in her eyes. When he finishes the examination, she begins to cry so he picks her up. He asks if she has an escort – her mom or dad – and is told no.

“Five years old and alone,” he says, and continues to rock her back and forth.

THAT is what this relief effort is about. That is the image that the world should see about this whole effort. It isn't about crumbled buildings, or totaled palaces. It is about the people. The children. The people whom have done no wrong, yet mother nature has chosen to inflict this terror upon their lives. Those are the people we, as a world community, are working to help. Those are the people that Portlight is working to help.

I'm certainly not an authority on anything but I think the theory you present is the flawed one here. What do you want me to do. Agree with you just to agree with you? Can't do that. I don't think what you presented is sound science.

I hope MODIS captures it.

Is this January or June?

Goodnight all, going to go try and get some sleep. Temp is rising and its 3:15am, 30.5C

Pretty excited on the EURO upgrade 16km.Some of the tweaks are as follows...

1-Improvements in the 850mb temperature pattern.

2-Improvements in the location and intensity of synoptic features (highs and lows, etc)

3-Improved forecasts for tropical cyclone track and intensity.

That is exactly right.
There are several people that claim tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes are increasing in frequency. In reality, there is just mroe technology to detect all of these natural disasters.

Including both studies. The discussion ends here for me with you. Have a nice day.

That PHX radar shot reminds me of the late fall fine squall lines we get in the northeast -- very narrow and embedded in a larger area of moderate precip. Usually lots of PW, lots of dynamic forcing from a very powerful storm, not much instability. Very impressive for that part of the country.

Our highest nado counts come in what ENSO conditions? La Nina. Exactly the same polarity of ENSO most any AGW fan claims there will be fewer of (and more El Ninos) just as there was in the last positive phase of the PDO.

And you would like to say more nadoes.

So you want to claim more nadoes and more El Ninos...2 things that actually are in direct opposition to each other.

Additionally, yes, the observational, survey, and reporting systems have matured extensively, even in just the last 20 years.

I'm thankful that is far enough off the coast to not have a huge impact. If that was a few hundred miles closer, it would be a particularly nasty nor'easter.

I read it. Says, "It is a guess", and those with the most to lose (monetarily), the reinsurance industry, says there is no such thing as earthquake weather.
ALREADY...A NEW BLOG!!
NEW BLOG HAS BEEN POSTED GUYS.
From the Yellowstone Insider publication-
"The consensus in the scientific community: the swarm of earthquakes is caused by tectonic shifts, not anything to do with the Yellowstone caldera. These same shifts are causing more severe earthquakes in areas like Haiti and Oklahoma. Other monitoring stations indicate no change at all in activity with the caldera and the Yellowstone supervolcano."

So next year califronia nadoes than will be just due to better observational and reporting systems - ah ok ideed. Why bother reducing Co-2 emissions than after all. Everything which happens is due to the fact of enhanced systems. Btw those systems are in place because science is doing a heck of a job. As long as it doesn't force people to rethink their individual lifestyle. In a not far away future civilization will stop to function, due to the ignorance to stop fueling the global climate system with greenhouse emissions. I guess it needs more record breaking on a daily basis for some people to understand that it might be wise to listen to people who do those work for a living. Btw. the topic was "How storms can trigger earthquakes".
