Summer in March, 2012, draws to a close

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 4:54 PM GMT on March 23, 2012

The most incredible spring heat wave in U.S. and Canadian recorded history is finally drawing to a close today, after a ten-day stretch of unprecedented record-smashing intensity. Since record keeping began in the late 1800s, there have never been so many spring temperature records broken, and by such a large margin. Airports in fifteen different states have set all-time records for March warmth, which is truly extraordinary considering that the records were set in the middle of the month, instead of the end of the month. The 29.2°C (85°F) measured at Western Head, Nova Scotia yesterday was the third warmest temperature ever recorded in Canada in March, according to Environment Canada and weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera (top two records: 31.1°C at Alberini Beaver Creek BC on March 29th 1926, and 29.4°C in 1921 at Wallaceburg.) Michigan's all-time record for March warmth was toppled on Wednesday, when the mercury hit 90°F at Lapeer. The previous record, 89° at Lapeer in 1910, was matched at three stations yesterday--Ypsilanti, Dearborn, and Lapeer. The duration, areal size, and intensity of the Summer in March, 2012 heat wave are simply off-scale, and the event ranks as one of North America's most extraordinary weather events in recorded history. Such a historic event is difficult to summarize, and in today's post I will offer just a few of the most notable highlights.


Figure 1. Clear skies over the Eastern U.S. caused by a blocking ridge of high pressure on March 21, 2012, are apparent in this visible satellite image. The comma-shaped cloud pattern over the Central U.S. is associated with a "cut-off" low pressure system. This low is moving over the Eastern U.S. today through Saturday, and will bring an end to "Summer in March" over the U.S. and Canada.

Low temperatures beating previous high temperature records for the date
I've never seen a case where the low temperature for the date beat the previous record high. This happened on at least four occasions during "Summer in March, 2012":

The low temperature at Marquette, Michigan hit 52° on March 21, which was 3° warmer than the previous record high for the date.

The low at Mt. Washington, NH on March 21 (44°) beat the previous record high for the date (43°.)

The low temperature for International Falls, Minnesota on March 20 bottomed out at 60°F, tying the previous record high for the date.

The low temperature in Rochester, Minnesota on March 18 was 62°F, which beat the previous record high for the date of 60°.

Breaking all-time April records for warmth in March
Not only did many locations in Canada set records for their all-time warmest March day during "Summer in March, 2012", a number also broke their record for warmest April day:

St. John, New Brunswick hit 27.2°C (81°F) on March 21. Previous March record: 17.5°C on March 21, 1994. April record: 22.8°C.

Kejimkujik Park, Nova Scotia hit 27.9°C on March 21. Previous March record: 22.5°C on March 30, 1986. April record: 25°C on April 27, 1990.

Yesterday, I reported that Halifax, Nova Scotia hit 27.2°C (81°F) on March 22, 2012. Previous March record: 25.8° set the previous day. April record: 26.3°C, set on April 30, 2004. However, Rob Paola, a meteorologist with Environment Canada's Prairie and Arctic Storm Prediction Center in Winnipeg, Manitoba, wrote to tell me that Halifax did not break its April record: In fact, Halifax recorded a temperature of 29.5°C on April 28, 2009. For some reason, that stat does not show up on EC's normal/extremes climate site for Halifax, which only has data up to 2006 for extremes. More details on my blog at http://robsobsblog.blogspot.ca/

Breaking daily temperature records by more than 30°F
It is exceptionally rare for a weather station with a 50+ year period of record to break a daily temperature record by more than 10°F. During "Summer in March, 2012", beating daily records by 10° - 20°F was commonplace, and many records were smashed by over 20°. Two stations broke records by more than 30°F, which is truly surreal. Western Head, Nova Scotia hit 29.2°C (85°F), yesterday, breaking their previous record for the date (10.6°C in 1969) by 18.6°C (33°F.) Yesterday's high temperature was 24°C (44°F) above average. Pellston, Michigan in the Northern Lower Peninsula--dubbed "Michigan's Icebox", since it frequently records the coldest temperatures in the state--hit 85° on March 21. This broke the previous record for the date (53° in 2007) by 32°, and was an absurd 48°F above average.

Breaking daily temperature records nine consecutive days or more
It is extremely rare for stations with a 50+ year period of record to break a daily high temperature record for seven or more days in a row. The longest such streak of consecutive high temperature records at International Falls, Minnesota, was a 5-day period March 3 - 7, 2000. The city has tied or broken their high temperature for the date ten consecutive days, as of yesterday. This streak will likely end today, as the high is predicted to be 60 - 65, and the record high for the date is 66. Chicago, Illinois has tied or broken their daily high temperature record the past nine days in a row. This ties the nine-day streak of record highs set on August 26 - September 3, 1953. Other cites that have set daily high temperature records the past nine days in a row include Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana. Numerous cities have broken high temperature records on seven consecutive days during "Summer in March, 2012", including Gaylord, Pellston, and Traverse City in Michigan.

The big picture: the impacts of "Summer in March, 2012"
I've always said living in Michigan would be much more bearable if we could just get rid of March. March weather here is always horrible, with brutal cold, high winds, damaging ice storms, heavy snow, interminable cloudy stretches with no sun, all interspersed with a few teasing warm spells. Well, this year, I got my wish. This March, we started with twelve days of April weather, followed by ten days of June and July weather, with nine days of May weather predicted to round out the month. This has been a huge benefit to the economy--vastly reduced heating costs, no snow removal bills, and far fewer traffic accidents due to icy roads. However, there is major downside to the "Summer in March, 2012" heat wave. The growing season is now in full swing, five weeks early. A damaging freeze that will severely impact the fruit industry and other sensitive plants is very likely. Indeed, the forecast calls for lows in the upper 20s in the cherry-growing region of Michigan near Traverse City on Monday night. The exceptional March warmth has also melted all the snow in the northern U.S. and southern Canada, drying out the soils and setting the stage for a much warmer than average summer, and an increased chance of damaging drought conditions. The early loss of snowpack will also likely cause very low flow rates in the major rivers in late summer and early fall, reducing the amount of water needed for irrigation of crops. Low flows may also cause problems for navigation, limiting commercial barge traffic on Midwest rivers.

Here is one that does not get talked about much, but was horrific. 1963,s Hurricane Flora...From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Hurricane Flora Category 4 hurricane (SSHS)
Radar image of Hurricane Flora
Formed September 26, 1963
Dissipated October 12, 1963
Highest winds 1-minute sustained:
145 mph (230 km/h)
Lowest pressure 940 mbar (hPa); 27.76 inHg
Fatalities 7,186 - 8,000 [1]
Damage $528 million (1963 USD)
Areas affected Tobago, Lesser Antilles, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba
Part of the 1963 Atlantic hurricane season

Hurricane Flora is among the deadliest Atlantic hurricanes in recorded history, with a death total of over 7,000. The seventh tropical storm and sixth hurricane of the 1963 Atlantic hurricane season, Flora developed from a disturbance in the Intertropical Convergence Zone on September 26 while located about 755 miles (1,215 km) southwest of the Cape Verde islands. After remaining a weak depression for several days, it rapidly organized on September 29 to attain tropical storm status. Flora continued to quickly strengthen to reach Category 3 hurricane status before moving through the Windward Islands and passing over Tobago, and it reached maximum sustained winds of 145 miles per hour (233 km/h) in the Caribbean.

The storm struck southwestern Haiti near peak intensity, turned to the west, and drifted over Cuba for four days before turning to the northeast. Flora passed through the Bahamas and accelerated northeastward, becoming an extratropical cyclone on October 12. Due to its slow movement across Cuba, Flora is the wettest known tropical cyclone for Cuba, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. The significant casualties caused by Flora were the most for a tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Basin since the 1900 Galveston Hurricane.
AccuWeather's Ken Reeves Passes Away

It is with great shock and sadness that we report fellow Expert Senior Meteorologist, Vice President and General Manager of AccuWeather, Inc. Television Network, Ken Reeves has passed away.

Ken is survived by his wife Raychel, his parents, a brother and a sister. Ken and Raychel were married in October 2011.

He died as a result of a tragic accident, which occurred at his home in Lemont, Pennsylvania, Sunday afternoon, March 25, 2012.

Ken had been with AccuWeather 29 years, since he graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 1983 with a degree in Meteorology.

According to Barry Lee Myers, Chief Executive Officer of AccuWeather, Inc. "Ken was a person of great energy, was liked all and will be greatly missed."

As a friend and fellow colleague, Ken was always willing to offer his expertise on dramatic and controversial weather issues.

According to Dr. Joel N. Myers, Founder and President of AccuWeather, Inc., "Ken contributed to the success of the company in many ways over the years."

All of our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Ken was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated from Abington High School in 1979.
For those who may have missed the CSU brief update that came out on the 21rst before their complete outlook of April 4th,here it is. An average season is what the Colorado State University team expects.

Not wanting to be HARPING on about these things BUT!
There are too many anomalies about at the moment and the last thing we need are earthquakes, as they cause destruction and human related problems.
Sooner, rather than later we are going to have to contend with the hurricane season ,no more than 10 weeks away now.
After all the fun time with the summer in spring delights, the realities of summer, 2012 might be a difficult pill to swallow!

I noticed that too. It is still kinda early to be putting much faith in the models. I do believe that if there is not a major shift toward an El-Nino soon, that will increase our chances of neutral conditions for the peak of hurricane season. Atlantic temps are low and drought conditions are present, but things close to home are toasty and there could be some serious storms in our part of the world..jmo

This is the second foreshock in my general area of interest that I published on Dec. 12, 2011, which has been shortly followed by a larger event on the eastern side of the pacific ring of fire.

The Antarctic plate is the fastest moving on earth right now, so this is the area I would be paying very careful attention to.

989 KEEPEROFTHEGATE [Hemispherical Earthquake Map]

Odd perspective illusion on that map makes the magnitude7.1 Maule,Chile earthquake look larger than the magnitude7.4 Guerrero/Oaxaca,Mexico earthquake.
Quoting TomTaylor:
Any particular reason why? What made you choose that particular spot as a sign for an upcoming earthquake in California?

I believe that California has been locked and loaded for several years. There's been tremendous and obvious movement on either side of it, both north and south.

If the Antarctic plate is moving faster than the others, which is my belief based upon mass reduction, then it stands to reason that this junction would be one to watch for activity that might forewarn movement in the Pacific Plate, generally.

As for the exact area of interest in this part of the Antarctic-Pacific juncture, it's strictly my intuition.

However, I have an arguably very good track record of forecasting mega earthquakes, by spotting their respective foreshocks.

I believe that foreshocks announce the arrival of gravity waves.



"Gravity data collected from space using NASA's Grace satellite show that Antarctica has been losing more than a hundred cubic kilometers (24 cubic miles) of ice each year since 2002." NASA Jan. 12, 2010

1120 OracleDeAtlantis: I believe that foreshocks announce the arrival of gravity waves.

Those aren't gravity waves in either meaning of the phrase, but rather a charting of yearly seasonal changes in Antarctic mass (mostly from icesheet melting and replenishment).

If you lay a sheet of typing paper on a table, and push on opposite sides of it with your hands, it will buckle in the middle as a solid unit. There are two main forces you have to overcome to accomplish this, the friction against the table and the elasticity of the paper.

But if you take that exact same piece of paper, and cut it into a jigsaw puzzle, and try and do the same exercise, you'll find that friction and elasticity become far less important. The pieces move independently around all over the place, and what you end up with, barely looks like what you had when you started.

Now, take that jigsaw puzzle and carefully tape the pieces together, so that they form a single unit again. This is the earth as we see it today. If you look under the ocean around Antarctica, you can see the tape.

Which surface would you rather live on? The sheet of paper taped together, where friction and elasticity absorb the external forces, or where the pieces are crashing into one another and the surface is changing very rapidly?

Antarctica is the tape, and space-time isn't a table without hands.

AccuWeather's Ken Reeves Passes Away

It is with great shock and sadness that we report fellow Expert Senior Meteorologist, Vice President and General Manager of AccuWeather, Inc. Television Network, Ken Reeves has passed away.

Ken is survived by his wife Raychel, his parents, a brother and a sister. Ken and Raychel were married in October 2011.

He died as a result of a tragic accident, which occurred at his home in Lemont, Pennsylvania, Sunday afternoon, March 25, 2012.

Ken had been with AccuWeather 29 years, since he graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 1983 with a degree in Meteorology.

According to Barry Lee Myers, Chief Executive Officer of AccuWeather, Inc. "Ken was a person of great energy, was liked all and will be greatly missed."

As a friend and fellow colleague, Ken was always willing to offer his expertise on dramatic and controversial weather issues.

According to Dr. Joel N. Myers, Founder and President of AccuWeather, Inc., "Ken contributed to the success of the company in many ways over the years."

All of our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Ken was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated from Abington High School in 1979.

This model is showing heavy snow and severe wx for the upper midewest.

It's something to watch as the models are signaling a cold snap around day 10. I do agree that the models have been off lately but it's been on the runs now for several days so it's something to keep an eye on.

From "Framing the Way to Relate Climate Extremes to Climate Change" by Kenneth Trenberth

Globally on a day-to-day basis the climate change effects are 1–2 % of the natural energy flow, as elaborated on below. However, because global warming is always of one sign, a much bigger impact is from the cumulative effects of these radiative perturbations on the climate. The main memory is through the warming of the oceans, manifested in part through the ongoing rise in sea level, and the loss of Arctic sea ice and glacier mass. SSTs have risen by 0.5–0.6 °C since the 1950s, and over the oceans this has led to 4 % more water vapor in the atmosphere since the 1970s (Trenberth et al. 2007). As a result, the air is on average warmer and moister than it was prior to about 1970 and in turn has likely led to a 5–10 % effect on precipitation and storms that is greatly amplified in extremes. The warm moist air is readily advected onto land and caught up in weather systems as part of the hydrological cycle, where it contributes to more intense precipitation events that are widely observed to be occurring (IPCC 2007; Trenberth 2011a; Groisman and Knight 2008; Min et al. 2011; Pall et al. 2011).
