Weather cycles about to change

The worlds weather is about to do another change as the plateau effect concludes. Global biospherical energy is changing and so we shall see major climate changes occurring much faster in this next phase which means things will rapidly occur faster than prior projections.

    NORTHEAST ICE STORM LEAVES 1.25M WITHOUT POWER

    David Tirrell-Wysocki,

    Dec 12, 2008

    An ice storm to compare with some of the Northeast’s worst made a mess of the region Friday, leaving 1.25 million homes and businesses in seven states without power as it forced schools to close and toppled ice-laden trees and power lines onto slippery roads.
    More than half of New Hampshire’s homes and businesses lost power, and it was expected to take several days to completely restore electricity there and in other states. The storm wreaked havoc from Maine to Pennsylvania, leaving a sparkling, ice-covered landscape that was too destructive for many to find beautiful.

    “This is pathetic,” said Bob Cott of Portland, Maine, who lost power. “I’m already sick of winter and we have nine days to go before it officially begins.”

    At least one death was related to the storm: New Hampshire officials said a 49-year-old Danville man who lived in a camper died of carbon monoxide poisoning after turning on his generator when his power went out Thursday night.

    For New Hampshire, the power outages dwarfed those during the infamous Ice Storm of ‘98, when some residents spent more than a week in the dark.

    BRITAIN IN GRIP OF LONGEST COLD SNAP FOR TEN YEARS.

    Britain is in the grip of the longest cold snap for more than 10 years as forecasters predict another week of freezing temperatures.

    By Richard Alleyne
    Last Updated: 04 Jan 2009

    Cold, mainly dry and frosty conditions, which set in on Boxing Day, are likely to continue for at least seven days as the weather is dominated by a huge region of high pressure coming from the Continent.

    For this time of year, forecasters say it is likely to be the longest prolonged spell of cold weather - where temperatures barely rise above zero centigrade (32F) - since 1996.

    Usually long spells of cold weather occur around February when the effect of warming from the Atlantic sea is reduced.

    “We have another five to seven days of colder weather still to come which will make it the longest spell since 1996 at this early stage of winter,” said Philip Eden, the Daily Telegraph weather correspondent.

    “Usually prolonged cold spells happen in late January and February because the weather in early winter comes from the warm Atlantic sea rather than the cold Continent.

    “Over the last 20 years winters temperatures have risen quite substantially so we have perhaps forgotten what it is like to have this sort of spell of weather.

    “They have become less common.”

    Not only has the weather been cold but for huge swathes of the country, it has been extremely dry.

    “Over a huge part of the UK it hasn’t actually rained since the 13th of December,” said Mr Eden.

    “Three weeks without rain at the this time is very unusual and again has not happened since around 1996.”

    CYCLONES ,FLOODING QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA

    (12 January 2009)

    Residents of northern Queensland are battening down as Tropical Cyclone Charlotte dumps torrential rain across the gulf region.

    The cyclone, which formed in the Gulf of Carpentaria early on Sunday, is expected to cross the sparsely populated eastern gulf coast south of Kowanyama early on Monday.

    The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a cyclone warning for coastal communities between Aurukun in Cape York and the Northern Territory/Queensland border.

    It is expected to cross the coast as a strong category two cyclone but will weaken to a rain depression as it continues to moves towards the east coast, which includes population centres such as Cairns.

    Emergency services have been placed on alert for flooding.

    Acting Emergency Services Minister Andrew Fraser said falls of up to 300mm were expected overnight between Cardwell and Mossman.

    He said State Emergency Service volunteers in the far north were on standby to deal with flooding waters and other emergencies.

    About a third of Queensland is already besieged by floodwaters following heavy rain in the state’s north west last week.

    Mr Fraser said additional rain from Charlotte could mean many properties in the gulf and western regions would remain isolated for an extended period.

    He said additional arrangements may be needed to provide supplies to flood-hit properties.

    “Given the level of rainfall to date, given the damage to road infrastructure already and given the time that some people have been isolated, all of that adds up to a more difficult situation.”

    FREEZING TEMEPERATURES
    : Sea Frozen As Cold Weather Grips Britain

    The cold weather snap across Britain plunged to new temperature lows causing the sea to freeze in Dorset and bringing chaos to the roads.

    By Sarah Knapton
    (Last Updated: 16 Jan 2009)

    The sub-zero temperatures have frozen the sea at Poole Harbour in Sandbanks, Dorset, with ice reaching 20 yards from the shoreline.

    Southern England, normally immune to the worst of the weather, was gripped by conditions colder than parts of Iceland and Greenland overnight as temperatures fell close to -12 Celsius (10.4 Farenheit)

    Milder weather was predicted for tonight but forecasters warned that driving conditions would be worse than ever.

    Tens of thousands of motorists have been left stranded in a record number of car breakdowns.

    A man was killed when his car crashed down an embankment on the A299 near Faversham in Kent.

    Twenty pupils were temporarily stranded when a single-decker bus they were travelling in collided with a Ford Fiesta on Rowlands Hill in Wimborne. The AA and RAC said the situation was worse than it had been since 2004, with an estimated 50,000 call-outs over the previous two days.

    Forecaster Gareth Harvey said a combination of a front of freezing fog and black ice would make conditions for drivers even more perilous.

    He said: “Southern England will still be coldest tonight but temperatures are unlikely to fall lower than -5 Celsius (23F).

    “Fog patches will be freezing and there will still be a lot of ice. This is a dangerous combination.”

    People across England were greeted with a light dusting of snow as they woke up this morning. Areas of Cumbria witnessed up to 3in (8cm) of snow.

    SNOW CONDITIONS SET TO CONTINUE

    The coldest snap for 20 years shows no sign of letting up, with the freezing weather expected to last all weekend and into next week.

    Almost anywhere in the UK can expect a further covering of snow on Sunday and Monday, the BBC Weather Centre said.

    It comes as driving organisations warn ice is turning roads into death traps.

    Councils are running low on road salt and Gloucestershire County Council has said it will resort to using table salt to treat roads.

    The BBC Weather Centre said some parts of the UK, including Kent, Shropshire, Northern Ireland and north west Wales, woke up to a fresh covering of snow on Saturday.

    Further snow is likely to fall in the north east of England but is not likely to cause major disruption, while overnight into Sunday temperatures are expected to fall to -10C in rural areas and -4C to -7C in city centres.

    Falling temperatures in the Bristol and Bath region have meant that roads and pavements are frozen. The Highways Agency and Great Western Ambulance Service have urged people to stay at home.

    Police forces across the West Country have advised motorists to only make journeys if they were essential, as many roads were covered in black ice.

    Roads across Wiltshire were particularly badly affected.

    Grit problem

    Forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker said: “From Sunday morning almost anywhere in the UK may get a further covering, with the north more likely to see snow, up to four inches over the hills.

    “On Monday into Tuesday, southern Britain is at risk of a further dumping of snow.”

    Some councils in England have been running out of road salt, with the Highways Agency saying supplies were “very limited”.

    Gloucestershire County Council has ordered 500 tonnes of white table salt from a company in Cheshire.

    Authorities in Wiltshire hoped to get 500 tonnes of salt from Devon County Council.

    Stocks in west Berkshire are at 20% of normal levels and are expected to last only another two or three days.

    Cheshire-based Salt Union said staff were working around the clock but still could not meet demand.

    A container ship is travelling from Spain with 40,000 tonnes of salt, and another ship is also heading to the UK with salt from Germany. Both are expected to dock on Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, the Irish Salt Mining and Exploration company in Carrickfergus, Antrim, is digging up to 6,000 tonnes of salt a day, having been inundated by calls from councils across the UK.

    Paul Bettison, chairman of the Local Government Association (LGA) Environment Board, said eight councils had to prioritise supplies to focus on the most important roads.

    He said: “If that fails to deal with any issue, then councils will talk to the Highways Agency to look for further supplies.”

    But Theresa Villiers, shadow transport secretary, said: “It is alarming that we face a grit shortage as the country has to contend with more snow and freezing weather.

    “Ministers need to take the initiative so that supplies of grit get through to the most important roads and worst affected areas of the country.”

    ‘Rethink attitudes’

    Andrew Howard, head of road safety for the AA, said people feel they still have to drive, even when all other forms of transport have ground to a halt.

    He said: “You know we all accept that trains don’t run, that aeroplanes can’t land. But we never seem to accept that a car driver can be late or not come at all.

    “And some of the time the whole of society needs to rethink its attitudes towards driving when we get into these particularly bad spells of weather.”

    • In Somerset there are 1,000 homes without power after snow and ice made access to necessary power line repairs difficult. Western Power says it hopes to have restored electricity by the end of Saturday.

    • A man is in hospital in Swindon after a gang of teenagers beat him unconscious when he asked them to stop throwing snowballs at his car. He is being treated at Great Western Hospital for serious head injuries.

    • Bath’s Royal United Hospital has cancelled orthopaedic surgery for the weekend because its staff have struggled to get to work.

    After a week with roads much quieter than normal because of the weather conditions, traffic police are preparing for the number of football and rugby fans crossing the UK on a typically busy sporting Saturday.

    Three Championship football matches were called off on Friday, along with several other games, due to the weather. But there are eight Premiership fixtures still scheduled with away fans travelling hundreds of miles.

    English rugby union fans will be converging on Twickenham in London for England’s opening match in the Six Nations against Italy.

    Many Welsh rugby fans planning to fly to Scotland for their team’s opening fixture on Sunday have already seen their plans disrupted. On Friday, flights from Bristol Airport to Glasgow and Edinburgh were cancelled due to the heavy snow

    Meanwhile, fans travelling by road had to cope with the closure of the two Severn bridges when ice started falling from the gantries.

    The M4 bridge crossing over the Severn remained closed overnight.

    Elsewhere, the weather conditions are continuing to cause travel problems. Early on Saturday, ice was hampering drivers on the M4 in Bristol and Gloucestershire and the M5 in Devon, while there were several major road badly affected in Wales and the west of England.

    AUSTRALIA GRIPPED BY FLOODING IN THE NORTH AND A HEATWAVE IN THE SOUTH

    Alex Deakin

    Eastern Australia is facing two extreme weather conditions, with intense heat threatening further fires in the south, and heavy rain causing floodwaters to rise in the north.

    The Bureau of Meteorology has issued heat health warnings and fire weather warnings for South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, whilst further north, flood warnings are in force for seven rivers in northern Queensland.

    Southeastern Australia experienced very high temperatures during much of January, and although the start of February has been relatively cooler, the heatwave is expected to intensify this weekend. In Melbourne, the temperature on Saturday is forecast to reach 44C (111F), 18 degrees above average for the time of year. This heat, combined with dry winds from the inland is leading to some of the worst wildfire conditions in 25 years.

    In the northeast, heavy rain over the past few weeks has led to several major rivers bursting their banks. More than half of the state of Queensland is underwater, an area of 385,000 square miles (one million square kilometers). Although water levels dropped slightly on Friday, further heavy showers are forecast in Cairns for the next five days.

    Both the high temperatures and the downpours are a common feature of Australian summers, but scientists from The Bureau of Meteorology have stated that climate change could be enhancing the extreme weather conditions.

    48 DEGREE WEATHER SETS UP CONDITIONS FOR WORST FIRES.

    The most savage Australian summer in decades has produced the worst bushfires with the largest number of fatalities ever .Whole towns have been wiped off the map as Victoria recorded the driest day ever it recorded unprecedented 48 degree celcius heat.
    The bushfire heat at the front of balzes at places like Kinglanke was estimated to be up to 1000 degrees Centigrade.
    This has razed whole townships and over a 175 bodies have been retrieved ,and this figure estimated to rise considerably(with at least 300 feared) as they just keep finding more bodies.Over 750 homes ,buildings and various historiacl monuments have been destroyed and over 330,000 hectares has been torched.
    52 fires are still listed as burning.
    Firefighters have come afar as afield as New Zealand (a contingency of 100)and now a specialist team are arriving from the United States.
    Climate change,bringing this extreme weather has finally been acknowledged as a contributing factor By Victoria’s state government,although some fires,show signs of arsonists as well.
