Record May Heat and Wildfires Continue in California; Extreme Flooding in Serbia

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 2:13 PM GMT on May 16, 2014

More record May heat seared Southern California on Thursday, and fierce Santa Ana winds continued to fan nine wildfires in San Diego County. The fires had destroyed at least eight houses, an 18-unit condominium complex and two businesses and burned more than 15 square miles by Thursday evening, causing more than $20 million in damage. Los Angeles Airport hit 97° on Thursday, which is tied for the hottest May temperature on record, said the NWS in Los Angeles (note, though, that NOAA's Threaded Extremes website lists the all-time May record for LAX at 91°.) All-time record May heat was also recorded on Thursday at Santa Maria (105°.) In Downtown Los Angeles, the mercury hit 102° on Thursday, falling short of the all-time May record of 103° set on May 25, 1896. Temperatures is coastal Southern California are forecast to be 10 - 15° cooler on Friday than on Thursday, and the hot offshore Santa Ana winds will no longer be blowing. This should allow firefighters to gain the upper hand on most of the fires. A steady cool-down will occur over the weekend, with a moist onshore flow of air significantly reducing the fire danger.

100% of California in severe to exceptional drought
Thursday's U.S. Drought Monitor report showed grim news for California: 100% of the state is now in severe or higher drought, up from 95% the previous week. Though just 25% of California is classified as being in the highest level of drought, "Exceptional", Erin McCarthy at the Wall Street Journal estimates that farms comprising 53% of California's $44.7 billion market value lie in the Exceptional drought area. During the most recent California rainy season, October 2013 through April 2014, the state received 10.44" of precipitation, which is just 51% of average for the period, and the third lowest such total on record. California typically receives less than 10% of its annual precipitation between May and September, and the coming hot and dry summer in combination with a severely depleted Sierra snowpack will cause a severe fire season and significant agricultural damages. The fifth and final snow survey of the season on May 1 found that the statewide snowpack’s water content--which normally provides about a third of the water for California’s farms and cities--was only 18% of average for the date. Already, the 2014 drought has cost the state at least $3.6 billion in agricultural damages, the California Farm Water Coalition estimates. CAL FIRE recently announced it had hired 125 additional firefighters to help address the increased fire threat due to drought conditions.

Extreme Flooding in Southeast Europe
In Southeastern Europe, torrential rains on May 14 - 15 in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina have caused some of their worst flooding ever recorded, killing at least three people and leaving thousands homeless. Extratropical Storm Yvette, a strong and slow-moving upper-level low pressure that cut off from the jet stream, lingered over the region for two days, pulling up copious amounts of moisture from the Mediterranean Sea and generating torrential rains. Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic declared a state of emergency in 18 towns and cities, including the capital, Belgrade. "This is the greatest flooding disaster ever. Not only in the past 100 years; this has never happened in Serbia's history," he told a news conference. "In three days, as much rain fell as normally falls in three months," said Goran Mihajlovic, of Serbia's Meteorological Institute. "Statistically, such rainfall happens once in 100 years," he added.

"Fishnado" in Sri Lanka
On May 5, 2014, residents of Chilaw, Sri Lanka were surprised by a rain of 50 kg (110 pounds) of live fish, 5 - 8 cm in length. MODIS satellite images from May 5 show an intense string of heavy thunderstorms formed over the island, and it is likely that one of these storms was a supercell thunderstorm that spawned a tornado which sucked up fish out of a nearby river and then spat them out over Chilaw. Such rains of fish are rare but not unheard of; as I outlined in my blog post on the ridiculous "Sharknado" movie that aired last year, there have been numerous reports of waterspouts or tornadoes picking up fish out of the sea or out of lakes and creating a "rain of fish." For example, hundreds of perch bombarded residents of the small Australian outback town of Lajamanu in 2010. In the U.S., thousands of small fish, frogs and crayfish fell from the sky during a rainstorm at Magnolia Terminal near Thomasville, Alabama, on the morning of June 28, 1957. Many of the fish were alive and were placed in ponds and swimming pools. An F2 tornado fifteen miles to the south spawned by the outer bands of Hurricane Audrey was likely responsible for getting the creatures airborne. William Corliss' intriguing book, "Handbook of Unusual Natural Phenomena", has an entire chapter devoted to unusual creatures and objects that have fallen from the sky. He relates that in 1946, a scientist at the American Museum of Natural History named E. W. Gudger documented 78 reliable reports of fish falls from all over the world. The largest fish was a large-mouthed bass 9 1/4 inches long, and the heaviest was a six pound fish that fell in India. There were no reports of large, 2000-pound great white sharks, as depicted by "Sharknado", though. Speaking of Sharknadoes, the much-anticipated sequel to "Sharknado", "Sharknado 2: The Second One" is scheduled to hit the air on the Syfy Channel on July 31, 2014. Yes, once again, bloodthirsty man-eating tornado-hurled sharks will terrorize a major American city--this time, New York. According to deadline.com, The Asylum, which is working on the sequel, has come up with a plan to use Indiegogo to raise $50,000 to create another scene for the new movie. Those who contribute to the campaign, which runs through May 30, will get some Sharknado 2 swag and an exclusive window on production, from behind-the-scenes footage to breaking news and advance DVD copies. Al Roker will make a cameo appearance in the film as himself.

I always thought that was a good idea. New shingles now attach at the bottom as well - so wind has a hard time picking the up and tearing them off.

Also not as hard to lug a load of shingles on the roof as it is the large panels that also required mounting rails, etc...

That picture sure shows a story. They must have been torching off one plate girder and either the bridge wasn't rigged correctly or they lost some rigging. The plate girder was wracked toward the viewer by something and broke the bridge connection on the pier in the center of the freeway, dumping the lower chord and plate girder to the ground while the ties stayed attached to the remaining plate girder. They're lucky no one else was killed.

If you're going to make a political jab at the expense of a dead guy, at least get the facts right, would you? Because California's massive economy--if it were a nation, it would be the world's 8th largest--is booming again under the rock-solid leadership of Governor Jerry Brown, the 91 is being widened (again), this time for carpool lanes. So it's not a stimulus, make-work project, but rather one of demonstrated need.

Good Morning everyone! Its monday and we are one day closer to Cane season. Looks to be a good one this week for the CFL and Orlando area with temps in the mid-upper 80s. Could reach 90-92 this weekend, but no rain for the foreseeable future. Might have to water the lawn lol. I dont see the heat wave people are talking about, so enjoy the normal and beautiful weather while you can :o) The rainy season will likely start in June this year.

I agree this looks more viable than anything in the WCar... wouldn't be at all surprised to see something from this.

As for the WCar, the lingering tail of this front might bring enough instability to induce some kind of monsoonal development, eventually. The EPac seems a better bet for the nonce, though.

All enso regions remained similar to last week no surprises here as the MJO moves in this week and warming will ensue again as it already has across Nino 4
What's caught my eye is this area of 1C's beginning to build across Nino 3.4. It's very small now but this was not here a week ago so we will see what happens across nino 3.4 the next 7 to 10 days as we should see nino 3.4 rise to .9C by the very end of May.

yeah i know......here's an article i saw the other day when the hoohahh was made

It might be surprising to some, but 100 degree days are relatively rare in Orlando. Since 1892, the city has only had about three dozen days when the temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees.

so if you do the math....from june through september...days when you could expect a 100 degree day...that's almost 15 thousand days when you might expect temps to rise that day....36 recorded over 100

now....you floridians can grouch about humidity....been there done that...but head out west if you want hot

Hope everybody enjoys a nice Monday; in the Balkans not so much I guess. Though waters are receding in some areas the gauge level forecast for capital Belgrad looks like a slow motion threat for the next days:


Source.

Overview of all stations in Serbia.


Published 19.05.2014 :Landslides have added to the misery of the worst floods in the Balkans in decades, which have killed over 35 people and forced the evacuations of tens of thousands in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. In Bosnia some 300 avalanches were reported, mostly in the northeast, as the saturated ground gave way and buried homes.

Yes, it's slow this morning.
Temperatures overperforming the forecast again today, currently 20C/68F with some very humid showers in the area. Flood risk this evening from developing thunderstorms. The main risk however is an absolutely huge cluster of violent storms currently racing north from the Welsh coast: well over an inch an hour rain rates and hundreds of lightning strikes showing up on the map as they run through the wide open warm sector. 2-3 hours until western Scotland gets slammed, if they hold together over the sea. This is definitely a more mid-late June pattern.

Ohio Teacher Caught Telling Students That Alaska Research Project is Controlling The Weather
Posted by Dan Satterfield, 19 May 2014
Toledo, Ohio Meteorologist Ross Ellet got a real shock while talking to students at Star Academy Charter School last week. He’d been asked to talk to the students about weather and science, but he got a question that left him totally stunned. One of the students asked him “what kind of job will you get when HAARP is controlling the weather, and you’re no longer needed?”. Now, Ross knew what the student was talking about, because every on-air meteorologist in the country gets emails and letters about HAARP (and chem-trails) on a weekly and even daily basis.
Ellet asked the student who had told him this, and was floored when the student (along with several other students) indicated that it was their science teacher! ...

Whole story see link above.

Thanks for the link Ric! Once again you are proven correct. It is listed at 0.4C, below the 0.5C needed for 3 months before we have an offical El Nino. My guess is not in June either. Im sticking with my guns and going with late summer. Besides thats the consensus anyways, late summer.

HAARP's just a cover story to deflect attention away from what's really happening. The lizard people are warming the planet with phasar energy from invisible spaceships to make it more habitable for them, when they decide to invade. And our politicians are in cahoots with them. You're all sheep.

Esa's Cryosat mission sees Antarctic ice losses double

Antarctica is now losing about 160 billion tonnes of ice a year to the ocean - twice as much as when the continent was last surveyed.

The new assessment comes from Europe's Cryosat spacecraft, which has a radar instrument specifically designed to measure the shape of the ice sheet.

The melt loss from the White Continent is sufficient to push up global sea levels by around 0.43mm per year.

Scientists report the data in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

The new study incorporates three years of measurements from 2010 to 2013, and updates a synthesis of observations made by other satellites over the period 2005 to 2010.

Cryosat has been using its altimeter to trace changes in the height of the ice sheet - as it gains mass through snowfall, and loses mass through melting.
