Nevada – Winnemucca snowfall breaks 142-year-old record
« Reply #80 on: October 03, 2019, 06:55:58 AM »
Since at least 1877, maybe longer.

According to the National Weather Service, the .8 inch (20 mm) of snow recorded at Winnemucca Airport on Sunday, September 29,  was the first snowfall in Winnemucca on that date since records-keeping began in 1877.

A new all-time daily record low temperature was set in Kalispell, Montana on Wednesday, October 02 as the mercury plunged into the teens across the region.

The weather station at Glacier Park International Airport recorded a low of 19F (-7.2C) at 5 AM which busted the dates previous record low of 21F (-6.1C) set back in 1999.

Great Falls, Montana registered a record-smashing 9F (-12.8C) on Tue, Oct 01, according to the NWS, which annihilated the previous daily low of 22F (-5.6C) set back in 1959.

Additionally, areas to the northwest also saw record low daily temperatures on Tuesday as both Cut Bank and Browning comfortably surpassed their previous cold records from 1950.

And further south, crossing a few state lines into California, temperatures at Sacramento Executive Airport dropped to 42F (5.6C) early Wednesday morning, surpassing the old record of 43F (6.1C) set in 1971. Meaning that in less than a week, Sacramento has now set multiple all-time record lows; on Sunday, both downtown Sacramento and the airport set record lows of 45F (7.2C) and 46F (7.8C) respectively.

https://www.sott.net/article/421427-Changing-climate-Extreme-fall-start-marked-by-unusual-heat-snow-and-cold-records-in-the-US

Extreme weather caused by a wavy jet stream has kicked off the first 10 days of fall across the United States, leading to a series of record-breaking and unusual weather events to start the new season.

Here's a look some of the weird things we've experienced so far this fall.

All-Time Record Heat For October

Daily record highs were set on several days during fall's first week in the South. Now, that has been capped off by all-time record heat for the month of October.

More than a dozen cities in the East, from upstate New York to the Florida Panhandle, set all-time October record highs on Tuesday.

Nashville, Tennessee, hit 98 degrees on Tuesday, crushing its previous all-time October heat record of 94 degrees.

Monday's high of 97 degrees in Louisville, Kentucky, also easily toppled the city's previous October record of 93 degrees.

Meridian, Mississippi, preliminarily broke the Mississippi state record high for October when it hit 101 degrees on Tuesday, according to Weather Underground historian Christopher Burt.

At least 45 locations in the East set or tied new all-time October record highs on Wednesday, from Connecticut to Arkansas and the Florida Panhandle.

Just after 1 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Reagan National Airport hit 97 degrees, the hottest official temperature for any October in Washington, D.C., in records going back to 1872.

Atlanta broke its all-time October record high of 95 degrees on Wednesday, hitting 96 degrees. Similar readings could occur on Thursday.

Knoxville, Tennessee, set an all-time October high of 95 degrees on Tuesday and promptly broke it by reaching 96 degrees on Wednesday.

Record Cold in the Northwest

On the opposite end of the spectrum, record cold temperatures have gripped parts of the Northwest to begin fall.

Great Falls, Montana, had a record number of hours with freezing temperatures to end the month of September.

Temperatures were 32 degrees or lower for 65 consecutive hours from Sept. 27-30, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). That's the city's most consecutive hours with temperatures at or below 32 degrees in the month of September in records dating to 1937.

Tuesday's low in Great Falls, Montana, was just 9 degrees, which ranks as their coldest temperature ever recorded so early in the fall season dating to 1886.

Although not all-time record cold, daily record lows were broken in several other locations in the Northwest.

Cut Bank, Montana, set daily record lows of 6 degrees on Sept. 30, and 1 degree on Oct. 1.

Astoria, Oregon (35 degrees), and Olympia, Washington (29 degrees), both tied daily record lows on Oct. 1.

Record Snow in the Northwest

A historic snowstorm in September's final days blasted parts of the northern Rockies with heavy, wet snow and high winds, leading to power outages and tree damage.

The top snow total from the storm was 52 inches about 10 miles south of the Canadian border in Babb, Montana. Five additional locations in northwest Montana tallied up more than 40 inches of snow.

In Great Falls, Montana, this snowstorm not only shattered September records, but was also one of their heaviest snowstorms of all time.

Sept. 28 (9.7 inches) and Sept. 29 (9.6 inches) were the two heaviest September snowfall days on record in the city. The two-day total of 19.3 inches was second only to April 27-28, 2009 (24.2 inches) for the city's all-time heaviest two-day snowfall, the NWS in Great Falls said.

Missoula, Montana, also shattered its snowiest September record, picking up 1.7 inches on Sept. 29 to top the previous September record of 1.5 inches set in 1934 in the western Montana city.

Spokane, Washington, had only its second measurable September snowfall in records dating to the late 19th century.

The NWS said 1.9 inches of snowfall was recorded Sept. 28, and another 1.4 inches of snowfall was measured the following day. This storm total more than doubled the previous record September snow event there - 1.4 inches - which occurred on a single day, Sept. 23, 1926.

Winter is on its way to northern US
« Reply #83 on: October 08, 2019, 06:32:55 PM »
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/10/winter-northern-191007114710135.html

The snowstorm will arrive in the Canadian Rockies late on Monday and push into the northern Rockies of the United States throughout Tuesday, but it will not stop there.

The National Weather Service has posted winter storm watches for parts of the Northern Plains states, with more warnings and advisories expected in the days ahead as the winter weather sweeps much further south.

By Wednesday, any rain over the Northern Plains and High Plains will turn to wet snow from parts of Montana into Wyoming and the western Dakotas.

Cold air plunging in with the storm will allow snow to accumulate and travel conditions to deteriorate, not only in the highest elevations but also in the valleys.

The heaviest snow is expected over higher ground in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, with at least 15 centimetres (six inches) also possible in the central and western Dakotas.

Denver and Cheyenne in Wyoming will both see their first snow of the season and it could well be several centimetres.

Temperatures will plummet as the cold air and snow arrive, with Billings in Montana going from a high of approximately 21 degrees Celsius (69.8 degrees Fahrenheit) on Tuesday to below freezing as the snow falls during the night.

With leaves still on the trees, and some very strong, gusty winds, we could well see tree damage and more significantly, widespread power outages.

Denver – 2nd Largest Temperature Change On Record!
« Reply #84 on: October 13, 2019, 10:18:04 PM »
A 70-degree change in two days, and a record low for the date.! The temperature in Denver dropped from 83 F (28.3 C) on Wednesday to a record low of 13 F (-10.6 C) on Thursday evening.  This difference of 70 degrees in just 2 days is tied for the second-largest temperature change in Denver since 1872 when records began.

A total of 17 inches (43 cm) of early season snow fell on Jamestown this weekend –a city in Stutsman County, ND– surpassing the area’s previous record for the ENTIRE MONTH OF OCTOBER.


Bismark’s National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Abeling said he had “never seen anything like this before” — and on checking with the record books, he’s correct:

The previous record for the most snow in Jamestown during the month of October goes all the way back to 1896, when the staff of the North Dakota State Hospital measured 10.6 inches (26.9 cm).

Furthermore, the 17 inches of snow which fell Fri thru Sat comfortably surpassed Jamestown’s previous record during a two-day span in the month of October — the 5.2 inches (13.2 cm) set back in 1959.

In addition, the record for the most snow from a single October storm –the 8 inches (20.3 cm) that fell in 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23)– was also busted over the weekend.

The historic snowstorm felled cold records like these across the Midwest/Northwest, as well as in southern Canada; it actually went down as a Category 5 Winter Storm, according to NOAA’s WSSI scale:

https://electroverse.net/u-s-broke-a-staggering-2159-low-temp-records/

The HISTORICALLY-EARLY Arctic invasion suffered in North America over the past week has laid waste to thousands of all-time cold records.


 they still logged a staggering 2,159 new daily low-temperature records over the past 7 days, against the paltry 213 for new daily max (even though the SE was reportedly experiencing widespread catastrophic heat during this period, at least according to the MSM).

114 of those daily record lows were also new monthly record lows, with just the 9 set for max.

And most shocking of all, a total of 100 ALL-TIME low-temperature records fell in the U.S. over the past week, as opposed to the zero for record heat. And so just to clarify, these past 7 days brought the lowest temperatures EVER recorded to 100 weather stations across the U.S...

Some of the highlights include Old Faithful, WY where a new lowest-ever October temp in 115 years of record-keeping was set — last Friday’s low of -13F (-25C) bested the previous record Oct low of -12F (-24.4C) set back in 1997 (solar minimum of cycle 22).

And also worth noting is the new daily lowest minimum temperature set at the Rock Island Lock & Dam weather station, Illinois — its reading of 26F (-3.3C) on Oct 3 smashed the previous record for the date of 37F (2.8C) set all the way back in 1876 (solar minimum of cycle 11 — the beginning of the Centennial/Glassberg/Gleissberg Minimum).
