Killer storm – At least nine dead … so far.

Snow covered roads and highways Saturday morning stretched across much of southeastern Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri and Kansas, making for treacherous driving conditions.

Many areas from Kansas City to St. Louis to Indianapolis areas were hammered by 6 to 12 inches of snow, with isolated reports of up to 18 inches.

A jet slid off a taxiway in Cincinnati, interstate highways were shut down in several states, and power outages climbed as the deadly winter storm roared east across the nation Sunday.

More than 35 million people from Ohio to the Washington, D.C, remained under winter storm advisories or warnings on Sunday, the National Weather Service reported.

Part of I-65 in northern Indiana was shut down for hours late Saturday about 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

By Sunday the storm had shifted toward the Carolinas, Virginia and Washington, D.C., area, which reported 5 inches of snow on the ground on Sunday morning, with another 5 inches expected.

Freezing rain turning to ice is also a concern in parts of the Mid-Atlantic.

The governors of both Virginia and North Carolina declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the storm.

Earlier, St. Louis was blasted, forcing temporary closure of sections of I-44, I-64 and I-70. Snowfall totals of 8-12 inches had been reported across the metro area through Saturday.

In Missouri, more than 60,000 customers lost power as the heavy snow – up to 20 inches of snow in parts of the state – snapped branches and downed power lines.

In North Carolina, more than 130,000 homes and businesses were without power on Sunday morning.

In Virginia, more than 30,000 people were still without power as of noon today.

In Kansas, the storm left about 24,000 in the dark.

Meteorologists expect the storm to subside by early Monday, but not before leaving 2 to 4 inches of snow in parts of Atlantic City.

“Most places have seen the worst of it,” said meteorologist Dan Pydynowski with AccuWeather. “By the time most people are waking up on Monday morning, it will be done.”

California Braces For The Next Big Storm
Another Pacific storm is expected to strike California on Wednesday afternoon, bringing a threat of mudslides to the area of the most destructive wildfire in state history and a blizzard warning in the Sierra Nevada.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office issued a flood evacuation warning Tuesday for Pulga, a small town northeast of Paradise. The notice read: "if you are in this area, you should evacuate to higher ground."

Coldest snowstorm in Montreal in a century
« Reply #5 on: January 21, 2019, 06:36:03 PM »
According to YUL Weather Records, the last time Montreal experienced a similar snowstorm took place on January 16th, 1920, when 30.2 cm (just over a foot) of snow fell, and the daytime high – the high, mind you – reached only -19.4 (-2.9F).

Meteorologists and historians believe that this weekend’s snowfall could have been the coldest snowstorm in Montreal in a century.

On Sunday, temperatures dropped below -15 degrees (5 F) and snowfall was expected to exceed 25 cm (almost a foot).

Thousands in Connecticut without power as ice piles up

HARTFORD — Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said Sunday his office was in close contact with utilities as they work to restore power to thousands of customers.

Connecticut was hit hard Sunday by icy conditions caused by freezing rain and sleet. The National Weather Service said a layer of one-half inch of ice could accumulate in parts of the state as temperatures plummet.

US Alligators Go Dormant, Turn Snouts Up in Frozen Swamp (PHOTO, VIDEO)
« Reply #9 on: January 28, 2019, 09:36:02 PM »
On Monday, at least 18 American alligators' snouts were seen exposed and frozen within Shallotte River Swamp Park's waters, causing some to scratch their heads about the creatures' choices.

Though the sight of over a dozen gator noses is a strange spectacle to the average individual, the park, described as "North Carolina's only privately operated licensed and certified alligator and reptile rescue sanctuary," clarified that the reptiles were alive, well and using a survival mechanism known as brumation.

Chicago’s record for coldest temperature ever could fall as polar vortex has
« Reply #10 on: January 29, 2019, 08:58:32 PM »
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-chicago-cold-weather-20190127-story.html

Temperatures are forecast to inch up to a daytime high of about minus 14 on Wednesday — the first subzero high temperature in five years and the coldest winter high ever recorded in Chicago — before dipping, again, to about minus 21 overnight. The coldest daytime high in Chicago was minus 11 on Christmas Eve 1983.

For younger Chicagoans, the burst of Arctic air set to overtake the city this week could be one of the coldest days of their lives. For Generation Z, this week’s predicted low temperatures have only two rivals: minus 16 on Jan. 6, 2014, and minus 19 on Feb. 3, 1996.

The lows Tuesday and Wednesday could break records set in 1966. They’ll also feel much worse with wind gusts up to 30 mph, which will make it feel as low as negative 50 degrees, according to the weather service.

But there could be as much as a 30-degree disparity from the north to the south end of the state, while lakefront communities could get a small reprieve, said Brian Kerschner, a spokesman for the Illinois State Climatologist Office. But that largely depends on how much ice cover there is on Lake Michigan.

The Arctic blast ravaging North America continues to tear the cold-record books to shreds. And after a brief weekend reprieve, the deadly cold will make a comeback next week.

In the Midwest alone, more than 680 cold-temperature records were broken or tied this week, according to the Midwestern Regional Climate Center.

Mount Carroll, IL plunged to -38C making it the state’s lowest temperature on record, supplanting the -36C in Congerville on Jan 5, 1999.

Moline, IL dove to a teeth-chattering -34C (-30F) breaking the previous all-time record of – 33C (-28F) set back on Feb 3, 1996 (solar minimum of cycle 22). And that was supplanted just a few hours latest when, early on Jan 31, -37C (-36F) was registered.

Quad City International Airport, IL set a new all-time record with -33.8C (-29F), beating the previous all-time record low of -33.3C (-28F) from 1996 (solar minimum of cycle 22).

Rockford, IL also set a new all-time record low with -34 C (-30F) on Jan 31, breaking the previous record of -32C (-27F) set on Jan 10, 1982.

Chicago’s O’Hare Airport recorded its coldest temp ever when Jan 30’s -30C (-23F) busted the previous record low of -32C (-27F) set in 1985 (solar minimum of cycle 21).

Cedar Rapids, Iowa tumbled to -34.4C (-30F) which busted the previous record low of -33.9C (29F) from Jan 15, 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23).

January 30 tied as Chicago’s coldest day in almost 150 years of records — the average temperature was -27C (-17F), which matched Dec 23, 1983’s average.

The cold took a heavy toll on infrastructure, causing power and drinking-water outages.

Bitterly cold end to January in the Midwest and to a lesser degree in the northeast - but January for the US as a whole was warmer than average:

Flash Floods in Tennessee After Record Rain
« Reply #16 on: February 10, 2019, 08:47:16 AM »
At least one person has died in flash flooding in Tennessee after a storm system brought record-breaking rain to the Nashville area.

National Weather Service Nashville reported around 40 instances of flash flooding in Wilson, Davidson, Dickson and Cheatham County, where one person reportedly died in flood water from the overflowing Pond Creek near Pegram. Roads and schools have been closed in affected areas.

Nashville recorded 4.00 inches / 101.6mm of rain on Wednesday, 06 February, 2019. This breaks the daily rainfall record for 06 February, which was 1.73 inches / 43.94mm set in 1884. It also exceeds the normal monthly rainfall for February, which is 3.94 inches / 100 mm.

NWS Nashville said via Social Media, “Just how rare is a 4″ rain in Nashville? Consider that in 149 years of record keeping, yesterday was just the 21st time Nashville has measured 4″ of rain in a single day. In other words, what happened yesterday occurs on average once every 7 years.”

Seattle – Snowiest February in 70 years
« Reply #18 on: February 12, 2019, 05:23:43 PM »


This is already the city’s snowiest February since 1949 and another two rounds of snow are on the way, according to AccuWeather.

The next storm, with 1-2 inches of snow, is forecast to hit late this afternoon. Another 3-6 inches is expected on Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

The first storm, on Friday night into Saturday, dumped 6-10 inches of snow on the area, emptied grocery story shelves, shuttered schools and made travel treacherous.

Seattle normally averages only 0.7 inch of snow during the entire month of February.

The snow has been accompanied by record cold.

High temperatures were expected in the upper 20s to low 30s (Fahrenheit), with wind chills from 17 to 22 degrees.

Hawaii, possibly the lowest elevation snow ever recorded in the state.
« Reply #19 on: February 12, 2019, 05:36:27 PM »
Hawaii officials said the blanket of snow at Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area is likely the first for any state park. Polipoli is at 1900 metres and is possibly the lowest elevation snow ever recorded in the state.

When Lance Endo's friend camping at a state park on Maui texted him yesterday that there was snow he jumped in his truck and drove more than hour to see it.
