South Flood Threat to Continue Beyond Fourth of July

TheSurvivalPlaceBlog

By Anthony Sagliani

A plume of moisture surging northward from the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea will bring widespread tropical downpours to a large part of the Southeast through the holiday weekend.

Some cities that have the highest potential for flooding on multiple days through the weekend include Tampa, Pensacola and Tallahassee, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga.; Birmingham, Ala.; Greenville, S.C.; Knoxville, Tenn.; London, Ky.; Charleston, W.Va. and Pensacola, Fla.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are especially concerned for dangerous flash flooding along the western Florida Panhandle and across parts of central Tennessee and central Kentucky.

While widespread river flooding is not likely from this event, there is considerable concern for rapid, dangerous flash flooding of low-lying areas, urban areas, areas with poor drainage and along smalls streams.

It Could Only Happen To The Met Office!

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Only two weeks ago, the Guardian warned us:-

 

Don’t worry, summer is on its way – but you might have to wait until 2023.

As the prospect of another gloomy Glastonbury and wet Wimbledon looms, leading climate scientists have warned that the UK could be set for a further five to 10 years of washout summers.

The grim conclusion was delivered after an unprecedented gathering of scientists and meteorologists at the Met Office in Exeter to debate the range of possible causes for Europe’s "unusual seasonal weather" over recent years, a sequence that has lasted since 2007.

Many will have hoped for news of sunnier times ahead. But after experts brainstormed through the day they delivered the shock finding that the UK could be in the middle of a 10-20 year "cycle" of wet summers. The last six out of seven summers…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

After GHCN Adjustments

 

We have already seen how GHCN have adjusted the temperatures for Reykjavik, given to them by the IMO ( Iceland Met Office). (Full story here.) By reducing historic temperatures up to 1965 by 0.8C, they have added an artificial warming trend that, according to the IMO, does not exist.

However, things actually get worse after GISS add their adjustments to the pot.

NOAA Reports 7-13 Degrees Of UHI In Phoenix

Real Science

A lot of hysteria this week from the usual scoundrels, about CO2 driven hot nighttime temperatures in Phoenix.

The National Weather Service reports that nighttime temperatures outside the metropolitan area are 7-13 degrees cooler (as anyone who lives there already knows)

The effects of the UHI are most pronounced during the summer (June-July-August) months. In a simple comparison, average high and low temperatures from Maricopa, AZ and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport were compared (Figures 2 and 3). Little difference exists between the high temperatures from 1961 through 2007; however, low temperatures have trended warmer at Sky Harbor as compared to Maricopa, indicative of the existence of a strengthening UHI. Similar results have been found by Brazel et al. (2000), who compared temperature observations at several urban stations in the PMA (Phoenix, Mesa, and Tempe) to a rural station outside the PMA (Sacaton). The average minimum May temperature at…
