« Reply #100 on: November 13, 2019, 07:29:58 PM »
The National Weather Service (NWS) has warned that “widespread record cold” will engulf much of the country this week, bringing the possibility of 385 new cold records from the Plains to the East Coast through Thursday (make that more like 3,000 — but we’ll be reporting on them as they come in).

“The Arctic air mass that has settled across much of the northern and central U.S. will continue to push south and eastward,” said the NWS, “spreading the much below average temperatures into the Southeast and East on Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday.”

More than 232 million people shivered in temperatures of areas 32 degrees (freezing) or lower yesterday morning.

“Freeze warnings continue into the Deep South, with freezing temperatures in Florida this morning,” said CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen yesterday morning.

Crushing 100-year-old records

“Hundreds of cold temperature records have been set over the last few days, including some dating back over a century to 1911,” Hennen said. The freezing temperatures made it as far south as Houston, New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle, he said.

Six times the previous record!

The snow that fell across Bend Tuesday evening through Wednesday night — about a foot (30 cm) — broke records, according to weather service data.

The previous record snowfall for Bend on Nov. 26 was 2 inches in 1960. The record in Bend for Nov. 27 was 3.8 inches in 1970, according to the data.

More snowfall is expected over the weekend, said Dan Slagle, weather service meteorologist in Pendleton.

Snow to hit 2,000-mile stretch from Nevada to New England
« Reply #106 on: November 30, 2019, 09:12:06 PM »
Severe storm system could affect millions of travelers. Snow totals of 18 inches (45 cm) – or more! – expected in some areas.As much as 3 ft (90 cm) in South Dakota.

Blizzards and snowstorms forecast from Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico to the Upper Midwest, then into New England.

Snow totals topping 8 inches, with localized totals above 18 inches (45 cm), are forecast for the Northern Rockies into the Northern Plains along with Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, according to the National Weather Service.

Parts of South Dakota were under a blizzard warning and could see as much as 2 feet (60 cm) of snow.

Minneapolis, which was hit by almost 10 inches of snow just before Thanksgiving, was bracing for another 4 to 9 inches through Sunday.

“The visibility could be so low at times it may be difficult to determine where the road surface actually is,” says AccuWeather, which forecasts 3 feet (90 cm) of snow for the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain are likely by Saturday night in parts of the Northeast, including northern Virginia and Pennsylvania, then on into New York on Sunday morning.

The same low pressure system is likely to produce several inches of snow in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Flagstaff, Arizona, was hit by heavy snow early Friday – almost 4 inches in just one hour as the storm moved in.

Record Thanksgiving snowfall in Utah
« Reply #107 on: December 02, 2019, 07:25:27 PM »
Almost triple previous record in some areas.

“Friends and neighbors came together on Thursday for more than a turkey dinner, but to help each other dig out after a record-breaking early-season snowstorm,” reports cachevalleydaily.com.

13 inches of global warming goodness fell at KVNU’s weather reporting station by Thursday afternoon. That’s almost triple the the station’s previous record snow total for November 28 was the 4.5 inches that accumulated back in 1975 (solar minimum of cycle 20).

Furthermore, surrounding areas saw upwards of 20 inches — Clarkston, for example, recorded an historic 26 inches of early-season snow on Thursday, according to the NWS.

Indianapolis breaking records all over the place for cold and snow
« Reply #108 on: December 19, 2019, 07:07:47 AM »
“Indy breaks 108 year record-low temp for November 12,” reads the headline.

The record for the coldest temperature on November 12 in Indianapolis was set in 1911 at 14°.

That record was shattered when temperatures in Indianapolis plunged to just 8°.

Yet another record for Nov 12

November 12, 2019 is now officially the earliest day of the season that the temperature has fallen into the single digits. Before this year, the earliest single-digit reading in the Fall for Indianapolis was on Nov. 17, 1959 when the low reached 4°.

Lest you wonder, that is unseasonably cold. The National Weather Service says the average low for November 12 in Indianapolis is 37° (not even freezing) and the average high is 54°.

Also a snowfall on November 11 more than doubled the previous record

That record was set nearly 25 years ago. On November 11, 1995, 1.2 inches of snow fell in Indianapolis — on November 11, 2019, that record became 2.8 inches of snow.

Back-to-back wettest years on record for the Tennessee River basin
« Reply #109 on: January 04, 2020, 09:49:44 PM »
Wettest year on record two years in a row.

It’s official, 2019 was the second wettest year on record for the Tennessee River basin with 66.47 inches – 2018 was the wettest with 67.02 inches.

Previously, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) said 2018 was the wettest on record for the 41,000 square-mile Tennessee River Valley.

When you realize that the entire state of Vermont has only 9,263 sq miles, you begin to realize how big an area we’re talking about here.

The two wettest years on record, back-to-back!

“TVA Keeps VERY DETAILED RECORDS on its 8 state region, and all its dams & reservoirs,” says Bill. “TVA said precipitation totals in the Tennessee River basin averaged nearly 15 and a half inches above normal during 2019, and included the wettest February on record when the rain-swollen river in Chattanooga rose 12 feet above its normal levels.”
